Thomas Riley Sweeden
I went to the Juniper Grove Cemetery this weekend to visit the grave of my grandfather, Thomas Riley Sweeden. I have submitted the photograph his date of birth and date of death visible. He is buried next to his mother, Clara Sweeden. Unfortunately, her tombstone has fallen over. It does not appear to be damaged. I will return soon to "upright" the headstone and raise the "sinking" portion of the base. His brother, Charles H. Sweeden (who also served in WWI) is buried on the left side of their mother.

Thomas R Sweeden
Additionally, Thomas Riley Sweeden's wife, Clara Sweeden (1868-1942), and his brother, Charles H. Sweeden (1896-1932), are buried in the same cemetery. Another brother of Thomas's (Louis R. Sweeden 1902-1977) is buried about 10 miles away in the Oak Hill Cemetery. I am going there also and will report all I can glean.Thanks.

Thomas R Sweeden
Dear Kaye:
Thomas R Sweeden is my great grandfather (my mother, Carol Ann Sweeden Martens, his son's only daughter). I just found out that my weekend home is about 10 miles from the cemetery. I am going there this weekend, and will be happy to post any additional information I can gather. My understanding (so far) is that he was born on Nov. 2, 1854.

I would contact the church or find someone who lives near there and see if they can locate stone. It is my photo, but for some unknown I did not uncover dates -- unusual for me unless there is ivy/ants.

Hi Kaye, it's been a long time. I believe that Nancy M. Voiles was more then likely born in Decatur Co., Indiana. I also think that Anna died in Decatur Co., and taken back to Switzerland Co., for burial. In 1830 George and Anna are living in Decatur Co. and that is why he remarried in Decatur Co. Let me know your thoughts.

RE: Jack D Anderson Arwine Cemetery
Hi Kaye,

So sorry it took me so long to get back to you regarding your note (copied/pasted below for your reference). I have been offline for quite a while.

I'm afraid I am not related to the Andersons in Arwine Cemetery so I have no further information for you. If you are a relative and would like me to transfer these memorials to you just let me know...and list the ones you would like.

Good luck in your search.


Original request:

I am trying to find the death date for Jack D Anderson's brother, Bill Anderson. I don't know if you are related, but I found your information for Ruth and Jack D Anderson in Arwine Cemetery. If you have any information that could help me to find the death date for Bill I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you.
Kaye Vernon

They had

Betty Lee Cartwright b 11 Jan 1946 Waco, McLennan County, Texas d 11 Jan 1946 d Waco, McLennan County, Texas she is b at Rosemound Cemetery, Waco, McLennan County, Texas

Patricia Annette Cartwright 10 Feb 1949 Harris County, Texas
Douglas Warren Cartwright b 05 Mar 1956 b Harris County, Texas d 09 May 2008

They had two more children a male and a female, but I don't have their names to check out the birth index. I don't know where Richmond Cloyd Cartwright and Mildred Lee Brady are buried at.

I look through files to get clues on our Voiles family, and try to find out the information in other death indexes and found Betty Lura Bantau by doing that. Found John Cloyd Cartwright in the Texas death's, which they do have some actual death certs. to look at.

Can you give me directions to this cemetery in Jack County. I have a couple of photo requests to fulfill, but there is no address or map on Find A Grave for this cemetery.

I am trying to reconnect with you. I wanted to let you know about the new website I've created, I just recently uploaded a number of the photos that you sent me a few years back. I hope you are doing well and hope to hear from you soon.

RE: Children of HD Bantau & Elizabeth
Thank you so much for your diligence. I just sent you a copy of an email I sent to Ron's brother Rick concerning some of this. I am eager to find more data concerning George Washington Voyles, Henry Day, and Charles. I have not yet determined which of the grave sites currently listed for Louisa Simpson is our great great grandmother and the wife of Charles H. I sent you a couple emails that came back undeliverable so I can't remember how much of the info you got from me, but this thing about the Voyles name is all new to my brother and me. And from talking with the rest of the family here in Michigan, they are also somewhat in shock and disbelief. I have reason to believe that my Aunt Betty Bantau (Tallant) from Dallas/ Fort Worth may have uncovered this information a long time ago and then decided to conceal it. She was a protector of the name Bantau.

Kaye, I tried to transfer the Hardins to you but it said there is no contributor with the number you sent. Will you check the number for me? I thought it looked like there were to many numbers. Lynn
