Possibly related?

I'm wondering if we are related, we have family members on Census records from Gatesville, Texas, living in the same household. My great grandfather is Barney Monroe Wollard, and Andrew Jackson Wollard/Woolard is listed as Barney's father, Martha Alice is listed as Andrew's wife, and Virginia Ann Ashby/Allen is listed as Andrew's Mother-in law. It gets very confusing sometimes, but I am going to have my DNA done to know for sure. If you would like to compare records, please let me know...God bless!

RE: Old Cavaness Cemetery
Thanks. I know him well. He owns the property on the other side of the river where the Burnett Cemetery is located. Are you sure you were on the right side of the river for the Cavaness Cemetery? I was told you had to go to the end of Storm's property and cross the river to go up the other side to find the Cavaness Cemetery.

Did you get the name of the owner?

RE: Old Cavaness Cemetery
Wonderful! I hope you find it. My husband and his floating friends have tried to find it several times. At one time, it had a rock wall around it.

RE: Houston Rural Cemetery
From Houston:

Hwy 17 So. To Hwy W. Approx. 17 mi.-Right turn [only way / this will be 5 mi. No. of Summersville.

Once you've turned onto Hwy. W it will be 9 mi. to the Arroll church & cemetery, at this point
you will have the choice to continue on Hwy W. { that would be a NO or go stright ahead on Jack Fork RD.(dirt), again a NO.

Your asking what is left? Going right on Arroll Road Approx. 4 mi. & you will find Houston Rural Cemetery.

Hope this helps & should you need any further info:, give a shout...............

RE: Houston Rural Cemetery
Were in business,
Will send detailed map tomorrow & add to F.A.G. @ same time..... Note, 4-wheel drive not totally a need, but would not attempt with a corvette if you get my drift.. Also best to not try after hard rain as road has a way of eroding BADLY!
Last but not least this is a low wet cemetery, hence best after a few days of dry weather or frozen ground.

Photo for Cyrena Crew
Hi Ryan,

It has been a long time since you took the photo for my 2nd great grandmother, Cyrena Crew, back in 2006. I might have asked before, but I can find no record, so here goes.

May I have your permission to add the photograph you took to my blog and online family trees? I would, of course, give you credit for your photograph.

Here's a link to the memorial: Cyrena Florence M. Ash Crew

Thank you for your consideration.

RE: PFC Lester Johnson
Ryan, my real name is Patricia Walker Steelmon, I changed my name to fair to All due to some problems with Find A Grave, giving some of my memorials and pictures to others. We have talked before.
My father Elba S. Walker, had these pictures of Lester and the rest of the Johnson Family. They were cousins. My grandfather Will Walker and Adeline Walker Johnson were brother and sister.
I'm not sure who gave him the pictures, Lester or Aunt Adeline. My Dad was overseas in the Marine's at the same time Lester was, just different services. If you would like copies just send me your address by e-mail and I will have some made and send them to you. Do you know Diana and Bill Johnson, of Michigan, He is the son of Ralph Johnson, Houston Johnson'S son? I have sent them some of the pictures, quite some time ago.
