My first experience with family genealogy was 1978, shortly after my paternal grandfather died. After exploring my family as far as I could and no real knowledge of how to research my family I put it aside for another 8 or 9 years. When Jim and I married in 1986 we began a discussion about genealogy and found we were both very interested in it. By then more and more people were exploring their roots. I'm not sure how we discovered the many wonders the Fort Worth Public Library and Regional National Archives had to offer, but once we did there was no stopping us. Only 30 miles away we made a trip to one of them every weekend for many years. Now we do our research in the comfort of our home, spending many, many hours combing the internet for clues to those elusive ancestors. We have always loved old cemeteries, at one time spent countless hours helping clean the local abandoned cemeteries. We don't do that now that our cemeteries are perpetually cared for by the Johnson County Cemetery Association. During that time my husband and I researched and ordered about 32 CSA tombstones from the government for Balch Cemetery. There are more that have not been added, so let me know if you find one in the cemetery.
💕 Two beautiful little girls from our area who were abducted from their homes and murdered. Hope you will take the time to visit their memorials. Because of the work the family of Amber Hagerman did in years to follow most states if not all states have the Amber alert that is sent out when a child is missing.
Earnet Joel "Joe" Duke could you add my uncles parents to his page. James O Duke Sr. Memorial #67787492 and his mother Myrtle Lee Lloyd Duke memorial #67811465. If you are not a relative I would love to have this transferred to me. Thanks, Sandy Kimbrow
RE: Duplicate Listing Thank you for the nice note on my wall. I know that yours was not on purpose. When I am not troll cemeteries, I pick cemeteries that are rather large, and scroll through and update memorials based on photos; ie: the names were keyed from an old list, than someone like me walked the cemetery and added the photos. Than someone else walked the area, and they make another memorial, without even bothering to check on findagrave. I hate being attack on my wall, so, I left my two cents :)
She is my grandmother and I maintain the one for my grandfather John Clarace Wilson. I was just visiting the grave sights and took my own photos and noticed that on the find a grave memorials the year they were married is wrong. The marriaged date is actually 8 Sept 1929 and not 1920.
