Fagg relations
My grandfather was Carey Alvin Fagg, of Greenville Texas. His first wife was Edna Rouse Fagg, who was from Brenham, Tx, and died in 1946. He remarried, to Mabel Kale Cooper, whose full name I did not know until finding this website. I am extremely grateful for the information. I am interested in finding Fagg relations, Rouse relations, Estes relations, and Thames relations, all names that I know I have some connection to through Edna and Carey.

Also, I have a hint that there may have been a hitherto forgotten infant death between the birth of my mother, (Mary) Elizabeth Fagg Olds, and her sister, (Edna) Louise Fagg Maedgen. There existed a telegraph message congratulating my grandparents Edna and Carey on the birth of an Alvin. This is very odd.

Any and all information would be welcome at

Thank you

Cynthia Olds

# 11535686 Calvin Cone
Greetings Sandra

Thank you very much for your incredible contributions on Find A Grave.

Calvin Cone is my great grandfather. He was previously Dr. John Calvin Breckenridge Combs in western AR. Following a family breakup about 1918 he disappeared with the oldest son and "adapted" his name. The oldest son and his sister, my grandmother (# 62031591) finally reconnected in the 1950's.

I would appreciate it if you would consider transferring his memorial to me since I am a descendant. I would like to post information on him, including pictures, links with other deceased family members, etc.

I went to take photos at the Belmont cemetery (Fannin Co. TX) yesterday and found that the stone for James Moore has a date of 1895 for his death not 1896 as on his memorial page so you might want to check into that.

Sandra, I would like to have this memorial if you are not related. Long ago, you transferred another Jessie Mae Dye to me. I did not know you had created 2 Jessie Dye memorials. I need to get the correct one and then I will delete the Memorial# 47675706 that has her married to a Howard Edward Dye. Thank you.

Georgetown Cemetery
In addition to my message below, do you know of any maps of the Georgetown Cemetery. I have such nice ones of the Lexington Cemetery (sections with lot #'s) that I may be spoiled. I stopped by there and was told there was not even one outlining the sections. Noticed you manage memorials you've created from there and thought I'd ask. I can only do photos on weekends and maps are helpful.....thanks for any info

James K. Shropshire transfer
Hello! I received an email that Mr. Shropshire had been transferred to me, thank you. I am always happy to manage memorials but wanted to make sure you transferred him to the right person. I did take the photos but don't believe I knowingly requested a transfer. Again, I'm fine with have so many to care for. Just wanted to make sure someone else had not request it. It's possible my memory is failing me as well (smile)
Have a Happy New Year!!

the reno/renoe tangle
hi sandra,
i appreciate all your earnest hard work making nice thoughtful memorials.
it appears there's quite a tangle going on in callaway co., mo reno/renoe families, i don't know how much of this is being addressed, pardon me if my input is redundant or confusing. i will do what i can.
it appears that memorial 18037095, elizabeth jane 'brandon' reno has the correct stone and dates which should be attributed to #15020064, elizabeth jane HOLT reno. 15020064's dates actually match (death off by exactly a year) eliza jane NEVINS reno at #12315658.
i THINK if 15020064 were eliminated as a dupe, and 18037095 were changed to show maiden name HOLT and husband henry reno (you had their children correct)
that might fix it.
also there are clues in the birth dates of her siblings, and the notes added in the flowers section of 18037095.
as far as elizabeth jane brandon reno, i see a different spouse for thomas h. reno 1829-1864 and have no information on the brandon's.
i've sent a copy to member jo herring. i havent met her but find her research to be a fountain of info on my callaway cousins.
have a blessed day, t.g.

The Keene's
I'm the grandson of Ellsworth George Keene and I'm trying to find out my Keene family history. I know that my grandfather's father is George Washington Keene and he was married three different times. His father is George Washington Keene Sr. and after that I can't find who his parents are. If anyone by knows any stories of my grandfather or anyone in my Keene family, I would want to hear them.

Ben Wisner
In 2008 you added a photo and information pertaining to the death of Ben Wisner on the findagrave website. Ben Wisner was my mother's first husband. She is the "Fanny" mentioned in your posting. This information was so helpful. I was wondering how you came about the photo and information that you posted?

Eliz. Hopewell Keene
Sandra, I just noticed that in Nov 2009 you commented that your great grandfather Samuel Louden Keene "was the reason for the divorce" of Isaac Newton "Capt John" Miller and Samuel Louden Keene's sister, Elizabeth Hopewell (Keene) Miller. This "story" is new to me. I had heard that the Keene family did not especially approve of Miller as a spouse for Elizabeth, as he had a "criminal" record of some length. It should be pointed out, however, that although he was tried for "murder" on at least 9 occasions, he was acquitted each time. He apparently never tried to flee or avoid these trials in any way -- the last of which was in May 1886 before the old "hanging Judge" Ike Parker, at the federal court in Ft. Smith, Arkansas. (This was before federal courts were established at Paris, Lemar Co. TX and Ardmore, Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory (present day Carter Co. OK). Miller did say this 1886 trial before Judge Parker was the hardest trial he ever endured. In the "Indian Pioneer History" volumes (collection at Okla. Historical Soc. library in OKC), there are numerous references to Capt. Miller. Especially notable are the old-timers of the Jimtown, I.T. area who stated that Miller was the "only law" they had in that area at that time, as federal marshals were scarce, and the Indian police could deal only with Indians; they had no jurisdiction over white or non-Indian inhabitants. Miller was often the "law" in that he was called upon to pursue murderers, rapists, horse thieves, etc. Miller was noted for "getting his target," bringing them back dead as often as alive. News accounts say Miller had killed 32 men in his lifetime -- and that Miller did not deny this, nor did he count any he killed in Mexican War or Civil War. (He was a Major in Mexican War and a rather "Independent" Captain in Civil War. He used the name "John" after the Civil War, so as to remain more obscure, as the Feds had his name on their list of Confederate raiders. (Indeed, Wm. Clarke Quantrill had been his "pupil" for a time in Fannin Co. TX, where Miller taught Missouri "border wars" participants the techniques of guerrilla and tactics of plains Indians warfare. Even I, before age eleven, knew the name "Charley Hart," which was Quantrill's alias. (Although I knew the name of Miller's pupil as "Charley Hart," I didn't realize he was Wm. Clarke Quantrill until I was in upper division university classes in U.S. History. This was the same class in which I had to correct the professor, who kept referring to the "Wash SHE' ta" river, (with the emphasis on the second syllable) .... he meant the "WASH i tah" (accent on first syllable) river, of course, I suddenly realized when I asked him to i.d. this river on a map. (( For I still own 5 acres of land adjacent to the Washita River, about 10 miles east/northeast of Ardmore, OK, right where Wolf Creek runs into the Washita. I'm told that in recent heavy rains, the Washita flooded extensively onto my land. )) >>>> SO, WHAT IS THE STORY ABOUT SAMUEL LOUDEN KEENE BEING RESPONSIBLE FOR ELIZABETH DIVORCING MILLER ??
