hi, Carmella. unfortunately only the person who maintains the grave can make corrections or I would be glad to do it. if there`s anything wrong with the picture I left with my name let me know and I`ll remove it.

I truly wish I could help you. My brother and Sally dated back in the late 70's. I last saw her in 1987. She was tending bar at The Station @ Westmoreland and Keist Blvd.. I moved away and never saw her again. I'd ran into a mutual acquaintance who'd told me she'd passed. At the time, she was sharing an apartment with her ex-husband. That's about all I know. I hope you're able to find some of her family.

RE: Bynum?
Hi Carmella,

All the information I have on the Bynums, I have put on Findagrave. If you have seen Issac Lafayete Bynum's memorial and look at Celia's too, I updated a bunch of info just this morning.

Aurora was a brother to William Nathan Bynum. He married my paternal great aunt Gertrude-his 2nd marriage. Gertrude was an orphan along with my grandmother--I don't even know what she or Nathan looks like :( My late mother could not find any info on Gertrude--I found all the info since she passed away in 2009. I took care of my dad and now am the executor of their estate and therefore have not found time to update mom's website. I paid to keep it up til 2015. I hope to learn how to update it soon.

I have spoke to the grandchildren of Gertrude and William, and they told we William married a total of three times. They did not know which wife was their grandmother!! I had to tell them it was Gertrude. So they are not all that interested in corresponding. I am good at tracking people on the internet and found both of the grandchildren on Facebook. They aren't big users and it took months to get a response--too frustrating. I know Nathan is buried in Little Rock AR. I found Gertrude burial and obit at the library when I visited (Little Rock)Paris, AR last month.

I have had no other contact with this group of Bynums, so I am very pleased you contacted me. I would LOVE to see a photo of Gertrud and William. Someone posted a photo of Issac Bynum on my memorial for him, and I've asked if she can repost a larger scan. This is as close as I've gotten. all this happening just this morning.

I wish I had more info. but I also have come along way from where I started and I hope the information I have on findagrave is helpful to you. I am always happy to work and correspond on this Bynum family, especially since it was one a just a few brick walls my mother had in her 35+ years of family research. I hope to contribute to her work as a way to honor all that she did to preserve our ancestry.

Lets compare notes and tell me what you already know and what you'd like to know about Aurora.

bynum pics
Carmella, instead of me sending you email with pics attached I went in and put all I had on find-a-grave on each person I had something on to make it easier for you. this way you can save each picture you want directly from find-a-grave. some I had a photo of person and gravestones and some just the gravestone. hope this helps and if you need me to look something up for you on just let me know.
it`s nice to meet you too. I tried to find where your vest people came in but couldn`t.
have a great day.

bynum pics
Carmella, I just counted 15 pics I have on a lot of different bynums if you want to bother with that many. I saved all of them so I could easily send them to you. I think I`d need your email address since that`s the only way I know to send them.



I know what you mean about the money. I`m on and off so much it`d make your head spin.

Martha Vest McDaniels
Hello, Carmella!

I happened to be at the Long Creek Cemetery, tonight, and was looking for some relatives, there. I glanced at the photo requests for the cemetery, before I went and thought I'd look for them, too.

I saw your request for Martha Vest McDaniels Burt. While walking the grounds, a man and lady approached myself and my son, and asked if we were looking for someone in particular. They were taking down information from the tombstones to start keeping better records. The lady, Ann, was very helpful and guided us right to Martha's headstone; however, the photo request said "Martha Burt", and the tombstone she guided us to said "Martha McDaniels" and only had a birth date - no death date.

I see, now, since viewing her memorial, that the dates the lady with the cemetery gave me match the ones on the memorial.

I have a picture; but, it was getting fairly late and my shadow is in the picture. I will try, now that I know exactly where she's buried, to go back and get a picture without a shadow on it.

Would you like the picture I took, for now, though?

Please let me know.

THANK YOU! Hope this helps!

Hi Carmella,
I don't know for sure where he is buried. I have always assumed he's buried with his brother Charles at Forest Grove Cemetery, Collin County (aka Fitzhugh Cemetery), since they died one year apart. But that's just an assumption. If you discover something different, please let me know.

RE: Constantine Cemetary-Studabakerss
I can find the ones in my index. They may be scattered, but I don't mind. It's only a mile from me and it's a great walk.

Also, the library is only a mile, so if there is something I can look-up for you let me know. The library doesn't have a whole lot. They do have a collection of obits.

Merry Christmas abd Happy New Year

I have looked over Collin, Fannin, and Grayson Counties. Can't find them. What cemetery are they in? Be glad to send them your way.

RE: Ella and Walter Rolf
No, I'm not related. If you want, I can transfer. Just resend all the info and findagrave #s, and I will be happy to.
