Bio and Links
Bio Photo Family names of interest include the following:
Bass, Gage, Hicks, Jones, Kinsolving, Spencer, Whatley, and Wilder (my eight great-grandparents). My parents and grandparents all called Abilene, Texas, their home.

Genealogical interest has been ongoing since 1978 and much information has been collected, with some digitized and ready to share. Operation Ancestor Search (, especially the Fort Sam Houston Chapter, has my deep gratitude for their powerful genealogical assistance.

Readers are welcome to write to me for information sharing.

Thank you for you kind note on your gggm memorial. I found it when I posted a photo this evening of her grave I took last summer. Sorry that it took me so long to do so.

we are family
Hi Mr. Bass. You and I are very distant cousins I believe. You posted that Harriet Wright Brown was your ancestor and she was mine as well. You are descended I believe from Martha "Mattie" Brown Kinsolving? Martha had a brother Ernest Everett Brown who was my grandmother's father. I have the old family bible with birth and death and marriage dates listed and have been creating a family tree with the info I find on Find a Grave. I would be happy to share info with you if you are interested. Also would be interested to know if you have names and dates for branches where I have reached a dead end.

Look forward to hearing from you!

RE: Masonic Cemetery
I tried to add the coordinates but it requires a (ddd.ddddd) format and it is too early in the morning for me to try to figure that out. So if you could send them as findagrave requests, I will try again later - thanks, Teresa

RE: Masonic Cemetery
I would be happy to add any information you like on your family members, no problem. And you know you are free to add pictures to their memorials.

I know that Abilene Municipal Cemetery can be confusing - it actually consists of five sections - but it does get confusing for those that have not been to the cemetery or know how it is laid out, especially when an obituary says Masonic Cemetery or Cedar Hill Cemetery. Here is the official website - - this shows the maps of the cemetery and you can also look up anyone buried there.

Let me know if there is anything else I can help you with. I'll do what I can.

Masonic Cemetery
I was wondering if you knew that Masonic Cemetery was part of Abilene Municipal Cemetery. You might want to check there before you add people to Masonic Cemetery. Several of your Basses are already in Abilene Municipal Cemetery with headstone pics. Since you are new to Findagrave, I wasn't sure if you knew that they were already on Findagrave. I am guessing that you are related and I would be happy to transfer the memorials to you, no problem, just let me know. It gets really confusing when there are duplicates.

Let me know if I can help you with anything else and welcome to Findagrave.
