Bio and Links
Bio Photo Pleased to be here. My hope is that I have helped someone along the way.

I spend a lot of time researching records. Those including much info in county records offices. A lot of time is invested into each memorial I create and those I manage. Then there are all the miles I drive to locate headstones. All info I include I try to authenticate. That being said I would like for those of you who wish to contribute info, not to expect me to just add anything, rather I would like to authenticate info where possible. The memorials I manage ordinarily are headed by the inscription found on the monument. Therefore nick names or maiden names, etc., are ordinarily addressed in the biography.

*I found out the hard way that virtually all of the bio info one places on their precious memorials they create makes its way directly to world connect rootsweb, family search and ancestrydotcom, and many other personal blogs and sites with no credit of original ownership in place. This is only important if that issue matters to you.

RE: William McGrady Winkler
You are correct , that matches what Jim Estes was telling me so I unlinked the Eula Winkler that was tied to him. There is no memorial for The Eula Vermillion yet, her whereabouts is not know from I can see or what Jim could find, I also could not find an obit for her.

RE: # 175903850, William Winkler
Thanks for your reply, below is the info I got from a Jim Estes, if you go to my prifike page his reply is just below yours. I pasted it below as well.

RE: # 175903850, William Winkler
Hi Jerry,

William McGrady Winkler's first wife was Eula Maude Vermillion, b. 7-18-1918 in Bonham, Fannin County, Texas and died Feb 4, 2000 in Mesa, Arizona. This is from an ancestry posting by their daughter, Sherry Winkler Sommer. You can see the names are very similar, but different people. I have been unable to find her grave.

Powell Cemetery
Hello, I wanted to follow up with you about Powell Cemetery. I will be in Dallas County in the middle of June. I was wondering if you were able to find out if the cemetery is accessible and/or who I would contact to gain access? I would love to pay a visit. I appreciate your help very much!

HiJoan, I noticed you as the manager of several of my Pursell relatives. Are you related to the Thomas Pursel family? If so would like to hear from you how we might be related. Thanks Maryg.

# 175903850, William Winkler
Hello, I received an edit from a Jim Estes , #47016115 to remove the link to spouse Eula Mae Winkler from William's memorial I added a while back. I usually accept edits at face value but since I had researched this person I did not accept immediately and ask him to expound on why I should delete the link to her. I noticed you left flowers on his memorial as well as her's, was she actually married to him? Was it his first marriage or a 2nd? I know I didn't add the link, did possibly Find A Grave contributor, RobMinteer57? Your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks kindly, Jerry

RE: 10 unknowns
Thanks for letting me know. Often when I see something like this it's a computer "oops" and that's why I let you know. Good luck with your memorials.

RE: Polly Methvin
Thank you so much for finding this, what a fun adventure! Yes, we are related. Polly would have been my 5th great aunt. Polly's sister Anna was married to my 4x great grandfather, Hiram Lamb, in Alabama where most of my family still remains today.

RE: Unity Cemetery
That's great news. Now are you going to put the pictures on here? Linda Cooper is publishing a book on the Vest Cemetery and almost finished with it. It's really good & informative.
