The WEST Family
Just saying Howdy! I connect to your Alexander WEST, Breckinridge County, KY., branches. Your Branson Monroe WEST was a brother to my William James WEST m. Mary Snyder, their son Felix m. Letitia St. Clair, and their daughter Emma was my gr-grandmother. I have just started doing more research on the WEST families.

Wallace Ware Thornberry headstone!
I just read the news article today on the finding of the two headstones! Awesome story!

I am a genealogy buff and came home and found that not only did he serve in the Union Army 3rd Kentucky Calavary, Company D, but so did at least two of his brothers (Bradley Porter Thornberry and Samuel Davis Thornberry), so I downloaded files from FOLD 3 and posted page 1 of the other two brothers files to their findagrave memorial.

One of the brothers did not have a headstone posted at all yet (so did a photo request) and one has a double headstone, but no 3rd Kentucky Cavalry, Company D headstone. Perhaps more headstones fell off a wagon too somewhere.

It would be nice if 3rd Kentucky Calvary, Company D headstones could be placed for his other two brothers. One is buried in KY and other brother in OK also. Just check the brother links for Bradley Porter and Samuel Davis Thornberry's.

Family links all exist on the memorial. So at least 3 brothers served in Company D (same unit).
Neat story and what a tribute to honor their service. So glad the property owners preserved the stones all these years and finally have found the owners of the two stones laying on their property for over 100 years!

Wallace Ware Thornberry
The 3rd Kentucky Cavalry was a Union unit! If the stone were a Confederate stone it would have a pointed top and/or have C S A on the stone. The shield on Wallace's stone is only on Union Civil War stones or stones for the Spanish American War.

Wallace Ware Thornberry
I noticed this on his memorial "NOTE: I am needing to know if Wallace Thornberry has an existing grave marker in the cemetery. Myself, and several members of the Sons of Confederate Veterans are working to get his military marker, (which was found on a farm several miles away and was in the news) placed on his grave. If you live nearby, please check the cemetery for an existing marker, and contact me. Thank you in advance!"

I don't know if you wrote this or the original owner of the post.... but anyway,
Have you seen the recent news story about the grave stone found on a property in Oklahoma? It is that of Wallace Ware Thornberry. Here is a link to the story.

I have contacted a Scott Thornberry (through another ancestry person) about this as well.

Here is the man's contact information (also I heard he is on facebook)

RE: Luxton/Elmwood
Love doing it, just regret when I find that there is no marker to show the person requesting.

Mr. Luxton is buried in the Forrest Family plot...Chapel Hill Circle #47 Sp. 7. However, like many in this plot his grave has no marker. Sorry.

Dale Schaefer
Sorry, but Mr. Forest nor his wife have markers. He is buried next to his sister, Mrs. Bradley.

Mayvis Oline Albin

I just ran across your memorial to Mayvis Albin. I take it you are one of her children? Mayvis Oline Albin was one of dad's two sisters and I looked for years to find her. Guess I am a little late. Dad, Vernon Luther Albin, died in 1994 here in St. Augustine, FL. I never met any of my relatives on dad's side of the family but I do exchange emails with several of them in Texas.

Tracy Austin's memorial
That's about what I do, place them in a cemetery with parents or other kin folks. The lady at Sunset seemed to know her; but, was on vacation when Tracy passed away, she did check for me and said she wasn't buried there. Thanks for getting back to me.

Tracy "Stover" Austin FAG Memorial
Do you know for sure that Tracy Austin was buried in Sunset Memorial Garden cemetery? I know her parents and can find out from her mom. My wife and I are working on getting Sunset cemetery marker photos posted.

Transfer complete. Would you like any of my other Sessoms in Sonora transferred to you? Just use the edit tab to make the request. I am not closely related to them. Michael David Sessom (1811-1876) was my 3rd great grandfather.

Transfers complete. Had to look at your profile to get your contributor number since you did not use the edit tab to request the transfers and noticed you were born in Pecos. Small world! My parents, along with most of my dad's brothers, still live there.
