Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a native Texan, born in Gainesville, Cooke, County, Texas on 3 March 1945. I enlisted in the U.S. Air Force and served from 1964-1968. I made my living as a mechanical engineer for Bell Helicopter for 41 years and am now enjoying retirement. My interest in genealogy was really kindled when my father died in 1978 and I inherited boxes and boxes of documents.

Your very welcome. You are so right, I've seen a lot of people in the wrong cemetery. I always visit the cemetery and take pictures of the memorials I post.

RE: Daniel Ray Wheeler
Hello Donald,

I am only distantly related to the family of Daniel Ray Wheeler, more specifically to his wife, I believe she is still alive.

His wife, like myself, is a direct descendant of Hendrik and Christine Dahl, our ancestors who emigrated from Norway to Texas in the mid-19th century.

We have carefully researched the genealogy of all of the descendants of Hendrik and Christine Dahl, and it has been published online. See:

I am attempting to locate the burial sites of all of the deceased descendants of Hendrik and Christine Dahl and bring their memorials up to date, and then I'm trying to link them with their spouses, parents, children and siblings if they are also deceased. We then intend to provide links to the findagrave memorials for all of them on our Hendrik and Christine Dahl website.

As I locate the findagrave memorial for each deceased family member, I then search for birth/death/marriage records to make sure everything is current and accurate. And if I can locate obituaries or any other biographical information, I submit those changes as well.

Thank you for making the updates I requested. It is not necessary to transfer maintenance of his memorial to me.

Martha Nowak request
Hi Don,
On the back of this stone are the names Sister-Sophie (1905-1981) and granddaughter-(Christine 1964-? who might not be deceased just etched in.
Do you have any idea which of the surnames they would be? Carol

Thelma Wilson Scott & her husband in Moore Memorial Gardens
Thank you! And I also just found a death certificate for her mom and think she's in the same cemetery but I'm not sure under what last name; I created a memorial for her and requested a photo through the system; Wilson was her second married last name but I haven't found a burial for that husband; her first married last name was Brannan but I don't know whether that might be on her marker or even whether she has a marker!!
