Bio and Links
Bio Photo Family research has been a part of my life for over 30 years. I do volunteer work at the LDS Family History Center located in my neighborhood even though I am not Mormon. I call myself the gentile librarian. I live on the west side of Houston in Katy. I was born in Waco, Texas and go there every few months to be with family. Many of my family members are buried in the Robinson Cemetery south of Waco going back to my great-great-grandmother. Growing up in Robinson, a farming community at the time, was a wonderful experience.

At the age of fifteen my parents and I moved to Texarkana, Texas. I completed high school and junior college in Texarkana. While attending UT my parents moved back to Robinson. I did six months of active duty in the Marine Corps and five and a half years in the reserve program. After completing the six months active duty, I moved to Houston, TX to seek my fortune. I would have to say my wife, children and grandchildren are my fortune. I am happily married and retired and have eight grandchildren which add joy to my life. If you think I can help you, feel free to contact me.

If you have any corrections or additions to a memorial, please let me know. If you would like for me to transfer a memorial, please let me know.

RE: Ester Brown Utay
Robert, I suggest you call or e-mail Roosevelt and ask if Ester is there. They will look up the information very quickly.

There are a lot of interesting articles about what to do with cremains, just give it a google.

It is illegal to simply dispose of human ashes in the garbage. That doesn't mean it is never done; I'm sure there are unscrupulous persons who have done it, especially if they inherit cremains of a person who they were not closely related to. That is why everyone who has the urn of a loved one on their mantle should put it in writing as to what they want done, not only with their own body but the ashes sitting there in the living room!

I believe everyone should plan for their own funeral, and that would alleviate this unpleasant situation. However, I realize it is not realistic.

Unclaimed human remains may be held in a morgue or mortuary for a specified period of time, according to local law. Mass burials of unclaimed remains take place periodically in the County of Los Angeles, and I'm sure that happens across the country.

Good luck with finding Ester.

RE: Joel O Williams & Wife Josephine
You're welcome, Robert. Actually, it varies with each cemetery, but a "community vault" or "community niche" can be done several different ways. Sometimes, it is a grave where the County or City buries the cremated remains of people whose bodies were never claimed by family, such as when a homeless person dies. Other instances are when the family cannot afford a nice burial, and rather than opting to scatter the ashes, they choose to have the ashes buried or inurned with others.

The history of cemeteries here in Los Angeles County is interesting in this respect. When a cemetery board applied for a license to operate, one of the conditions for having permits granted to open a cemetery, was that they had to set aside a small percentage for a "potter's field", that is, a place to bury people whose families were too poor, or when family could not be located. In the case of the latter, they could not cremate the body, but had to keep it stored at a mortuary for a specified amount of time to wait for family to claim it. After that time period, The bodies were buried in the potter's field. These days, they are allowed to cremate such persons, but it wasn't always so.

Who knows what happened with Josephine? Only close family would know the answer and since she died over 70 years ago, there may not be anyone left who knows the answer.

If you need anything else, just let me know.

Best regards,

Thanks Robert. I don't know why I showed them as his daughters. Sure appreciate you letting me know. I will do some more research on them to add to their memorials when I have time.
Best regards,

RE: Ola Pitts Hines

We were on a trip coming back from Oklahoma when we stopped in Fayetteville cemetery, I have relatives buried there and needed tombstone pictures. We're about 3 hours from there.
