Nolan Forest, Mexia Cem.
Morning Pat, I hope U are a relative 'cause I have a question that only a relative would know the facts of.
Findagrave memorial lists his as Nolan, the cemetery registry has him down as Blake. The death date on the registry is 8-1-1969.
Having said all that, here is the quandry.
Do U know if all three of them are buried together, the reason I ask is that Capt. Blake Samuel Forest has an upright military marker.
I checked the ground and next to him is an unmarked adult male, next to that unmarked male, in a depressed area, is an unmarked adult female.
Since all three are recorded being in Section 9 then logic would dictate that his parents gravesites are "unmarked". I just wanted to run that by before I posted it as fact.
Let me know please, later, James Coston

There is no marker for her. I have searched the cemetery over and if there ever was one, it has disappeared.

Hi, Pat -

So good to hear from you!
I haven't been working on the Cantrells lately - I have another project: I am working on a project to properly identify memorials of American Revolution soldiers, specifically, memorials of those Heroes who fought at King's Mountain. The battle fought at King's Mountain (7 October 1780) has been declared to be the turning point of the American Revolution. Naturally, there is a keen interest in determining who fought in this significant encounter and in preserving the integrity of the actual participants. And, yes, there was a Cantrell there - Captain Stephen Cantrell. He is not my direct ancestor, but a first cousin 7XR. My 6XGGF did fight, though.

My email is Thanks for the invitation. I thought you had connected to mine - I am so sorry that I haven't sent you an invitation.

Hi Pat,
You are so welcome. It is hard for me to understand why anyone would not let you use their picture. Glad I could be of help.

I was able to take a photo of William Kissel's head stone today. I would be honored if you could use the picture in your families geneology.

Well I be!! Hugh married my Aunt Margaret (Muggy) Jane Green. I knew him well and loved him dearly. He did love his race car races didn't he? I knew his sister Pauline too. Got just names on their parents. I would like to fill this in a tad more.

Email me please if you can add more here or have photos of them.

This is the son of Sam. I think Steve has the wrong dates. I compared Military records (included below) and then looked at the Census for 1850 where Levi shows up as 21 which would correlate with the 1829 DOB. I need you to look at this: the record indicates that he fought for the Union.

Hi Pat:

According to the funeral home records, the Date of Death is Feb 5th 1959 rather than Dec 5th. It was an entry error on the memorial.

I am so glad that you are working on the Cantrell line.
A distant cousin of ours had contacted me through and invited me to spend some time with her when I went to Spartanburg in Oct/Nov. I did and, since then, have been sidetracked by a couple of other projects.

RE: Edward Burleson
There has been some discussion about this in the forums:

On the second page is a link to an article by a blogger who was sued for using a photograph without permission.

The thread has some interesting information in it.

Pat -

You are right, of course. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I had always meant to correct this, but I have ADD - can't stay on one track long enough to get anything done, but I HAVE corrected it this time.
The above email address if for Clemmie's great grandson. Maybe he will have more information re date and circumstances of Abner's death. Abner probably did die in the war as Clemmie was raised by grandparents (see her memorial).
One of the 3 of us needs to contact Lela and ask her to change the date. I will do that right now.

Good to hear from you again - Happy New Year!

I am so sorry. You must think me so rude. I never think about checking messages on Find a Grave, so I just found this. Is the William Cantrell you are asking about 1831 - 1900? If so, I have 2 wives. The Prince I am pretty sure. My email is You are welcome to anything I have.

I cannot give you permission to use this photograph. He is our direct line of descent and this is a family photo in our possession.

I have contacted Ancestry about the copyright violation. I regret posting this family photograph due to the individuals to whom you refer.

Thank you for your understanding. I appreciate your inquiry.

Hi Pat, Sorry, I research Ballards mainly, but one of my cousins has Chastains in her line and I photographed Lost River for her. These are not my memorials, and I have not knowledge of the Chastain family.

Nolan Forrest (follow-up)
My Iphone pinged, said I had a message from you, went to pick it up, nothing there. ?????
However, I went back to look at the Forrests in Mexia cemetery and found a double entry on Nolan.
I found that I had put his fotos in the system back in Oct 2011, memorial # 67233982 but I figure by now that you have found that info also.
so, looks like the date issues should be resolved, Later, James Coston

Yes he is in the family picture but you can hardly see him...give me a day or two and I will post a better picture of him on his memorial that you can use.

He is in the picture of the guys playing dominos but that is not a good picture for a family tree either.
