My husband and I drove to Ames, Texas, and searched and searched for Benjamin Pradia's gravestone to no avail. Did you just get your information from his death certificate?

I am speaking to her daughter as I am typing this.

She has a brother Armand Cortes but legally changed his name in Harris County, Houston, Texas to His Mothers Maiden last name Ramsey.

He was known as Armand Ramsey and retired from the post office. He was a Veteran and belong to the Anerican Legion on Parker Road in Houston, Texas. He was know as Pete? Or something like that.

Armand (Cortes) Ramsey was married twice.

Second wife was Beulah Kidder Ramsey.from Beaux Bridge, La, was married the first time to a Landry. Her cousin is related to Policians. She was Spanish and German.and spoke French.

The year before Katrina I Found the entire Cortes/Kramer family in Bayou Beauf La. There is a book written by Martin Cotes and Armand was the Missing link due to the name change.

I put on the first Family reunion in 200 years there at the volunteer fire department.

His sons Glenn Allen and Wayne Ramsey are still alive along with Margarets children Wanda Reevs and Robert Stark.

Family Tree has the book on the Cortes/Kramer.

Thank you.

RE: BOSTICK MEMORIAL # 61264215
Hello. His great great great granddad Matthew Denny Bostick (I believe his was great x 3) was my great great great granddaddy Nathaniel Alexander Bostick's brother. We were great cousins! I actually still have a letter Rhnea sent to me years ago, discussing our family history, and I met him several years ago when he came to Tennessee. He was very nice, and I was saddened to hear of his passing. Nathaniel is on Find-A-Grave if you want to read about him, as well as are brothers Matthew Denny, Chesley Butler, Alfred, and Ann Bostick Poteete.

Elsie Grace Tarr Fox
Hello,

I've been meaning to get in touch with you regarding the memorial page for Elsie Grace Tarr Fox (#40232927). I believe you may have linked her to the wrong Elma Tarr (her mother). The notes on her memorial page say she was the daughter of Joseph and Elma Tarr, but when you click on Elma's name it takes you to the headstone of Elma and her husband Sherman P Tarr. They are my great grandparents and I know for sure they didn't have a daughter named Elsie. I have a Tarr genealogy document and searched for Joseph Tarr but could not find a Joseph with Elsie and her other siblings named on the memorial page. I'll try to find Elsie's parents and will do some searching.
I'll get back to you if I find anything.
Regards!
K.Sykes

RE: Lavalla Hamilton FAG #93803408
Hi Rick
The information about the plot not being used was came directly from Earthman Funeral Home when I called them wanting to buy the death year marker for the headstone. I'm not quite sure where the 2002 death date came from and even less sure I supplied it because it's not in my records. But if she has recently died, I'm heartbroken not to have found her before her death. I loved her dearly. If you have current correct information, please supply it to Richard Hollis who maintains the memorial on Find A Grave. You have my gratitude for making things right for Aunt Lavalla.
Gratefully,
Donna

Lloyd Calvin Istre
During the Korean War, I met Lloyd Calvin Istre, called "Lucky" at that time. He was serving aboard the USS Los Angeles, light cruiser, docked in Long Beach, Ca. I was a volunteer hostess with the USO at the time and became good friends with Lucky. When he was discharged from the Marines, he invited me to come to Texas to meet his family, but I was too young at the time and couldn't go. I often wonder what life might have brought the two of us had I disobeyed my parents and run to Texas. I am saddened to learn that Lucky was deceased at such a young age. I can't imagine what might have caused that other than an accident. If there is any way you might put me in touch with his family members, I would be grateful. You can reach me at the email address, jwood717@yahoo.com, or by phone: 714/374-3821. I wrote a letter to Gary, who I believe might be his son, but I am not sure I have the current and correct address. Thank you and God bless your efforts for so many. Ruby Jo Wilson-Wood

Hi Rick:

I am a direct descendant of Samuel Hoy Smith. I just wondered where you found Anthony, Jerimhia, William, Mary and Robert.

We have been looking for proof in public records quite literally for a hundred years.

If you found these on Ancestry in my file it is the families best information, just hoping you found other references. Several OHIO histories list these siblings also.

Hi Rick, I was wondering if this is Joannes daughter. Did Debra move to the Austin area in the mid 80's? If so, I knew her quite well. Thanks

why?
Because the death certificate shows one spelling and the links (made by other people) show a different spelling.
