Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.


Please stop by my mom and dad's memorials:

❤Wilma Leach Mahanay

❤Alvah Brandle Mahanay, Jr


Bless and remember Angel children from our families

❤Dora Dee Leach - my mother's little sister

❤Raymond M. Brown, Jr - Mother-in-law's brother

❤David Michael Godi - husband's cousin

❤Harry B. Enochs, Jr. aunt & uncles still born baby


Three very special children from my hometown that should be remembered, but have been forgotten until now.

❤Unknown Infant Found at Bridge

❤Little Slave Girl Killed by Bear

❤Peggy Kaether one of my best friends little sister


New Please flower and remember

Two sweet little boys and their mother who were killed by a drunk driver from my home town.

❤Cruz Dominguez

❤Christopher Dominguez

❤Maranda Abshire


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.

❤Amber Rene Hagerman

❤Opal Jo Jennings

I am so sorry it has taken me forever to get her transfer done. I have been handling the estate of my late aunt for several weeks and it has been challenging to say the least. Have a blessed evening and thank you for being on Find A Grave.

Emmet Mahanay edit request
Hi Beverly,

Noticed that you sent me an edit request to link Emmet to his parents, but you also requested he be unlinked to Jewel Mahanay, who is his spouse. I am presuming this was done error as she appears as his spouse on the birth certificates of three of their children and is on the same headstone with him. I went ahead and accepted your edit request so that Emmet will be linked to his parents. However I have went back and re-linked him to Jewel as that appears to be very much correct. I am going to presume that you didn't mean to have her unlinked from Emmet and that it was done in error. Of course with this being your family, you certainly would have a far more intimate knowledge of who was married to who than I would.

RE: thank you
the birthdate given in the ssdi is 5 Aug 1898. Based on the census, she was born in Texas, but I don't know where. I don't know her maiden name, either.
