I most certainly will link them. I was so tickled to get your correction request and find someone on here who knew them. I was in Tiffany's class in Arizona and she was one of my very dearest friends. I think of them often and miss them very much.

God bless you,

RE: Bernard Oates, Sr.
Thanks for the connections!

Sure, I'll take Uncle Bernard and Aunt Lula Oates and their son, Bernard,Jr., (or B.C. as I knew him) if you don't mind transferring them to me.

Bernard Oates, Sr.
Hi Joy,

I see that you have Bernard Oates, Sr (who is buried in the Peebles Cemetery) listed on finagrave. Uncle Bernard was the youngest brother of my great-grandfather, Robert F. "Bob" Oates. I was wondering if you would mind linking Bernard to his parents and wife, Aunt Lula on Findagrave.

Uncle Bernard's father was Stephen Moses Oates and his ID number is 28974870.
Uncle Bernard's mother was Margaret Wilson Oates and her ID number is 28974901.
Uncle Bernard's wife, Aunt Lula Thomas Oates' ID number is 13907883. They were married in 1926.

I truly appreciate you doing this for me!

Genealogist's Christmas Eve
'Twas the night before Christmas
When all through the house
Not a creature was stirring,
Not even my spouse.

The dining room table with clutter was spread
With pedigree charts and with letters which said...
"Too bad about the data for which you wrote;
Sank in a storm on an ill-fated boat."

Stacks of old copies of wills and such
Were proof that my work had become too much.
Our children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugarplums danced in their heads.

And I at my table was ready to drop
From work on my album with photos to crop.
Christmas was here, and such was my lot
That presents and goodies and toys I'd forgot.

Had I not been busy with grandparents' wills,
I'd not have forgotten to shop for such thrills,
While others bought gifts to bring Christmas cheers,
I'd spent time researching those birth dates and years.

While I was thus musing about my sad plight,
A strange noise on the lawn gave me such a great fright.
Away to the window I flew in a flash,
Tore open the drapes and yanked up the sash.

When what with my wondering eyes should appear,
But an overstuffed sleigh and eight small reindeer.
Up to the house top the reindeer they flew,
With a sleigh full of toys and 'ole Santa Claus, too.

And then in a twinkle, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of thirty-two hoofs.
As I drew in my head, and bumped it on the sash,
Down the cold chimney fell Santa--KER-RASH!

"Dear" Santa had come from the roof in a wreck,
And tracked soot on the carpet, (I could wring his short neck!)
Spotting my face, good 'ole Santa could see
I had no Christmas spirit you'd have to agree.

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work
And filled all the stockings, (I felt like a jerk).
Here was Santa, who'd brought us such gladness and joy:
When I'd been too busy for even one toy.

He spied my research on the table all spread
"A genealogist!" He cried! (My face was all red!)
"Tonight I've met many like you," Santa grinned,
As he pulled from his sack a large book he had penned.

I gazed with amusement--the cover it read
Genealogy Lines for Which You Have Plead.
"I know what it's like as a genealogy bug."
He said as he gave me a great Santa hug.

"While the elves make the sleighful of toys I now carry,
I do some research in the North Pole Library!
A special treat I am thus able to bring,
To genealogy folk who can't find a thing."

"Now off you go to your bed for a rest,
I'll clean up the house from this genealogy mess."
As I climbed up the stairs full of gladness and glee,
I looked back at Santa who'd brought much to me.

While settling in bed, I heard Santa's clear whistle,
To his team, which then rose like the down of a thistle.
And I heard him exclaim as he flew out of sight,
"Family history is Fun! Merry Christmas! Goodnight!"

Bluff Creek Cem.
Ms. Joy, I just visited Bluff Creek cem, Polk Co. because I saw the sign from the road side, and turned off to find it down the long road that turned to dirt surface. This was interesting even more when I began to see many graves with the name "Creel". You see, I live in South West La. in Allen Parish, & and there are Two cemetery's named Creel cem. about 20 mi's apart. Just thought it was unusual, am not related to them. I have photographed both these cem's. I enjoyed seeing the C.S.A. stones here. If you want or need more info on La. Creel cem's, Email me anytime... Thanks....Charles T. Baggett
