Bio and Links
Bio Photo PHOTOS: Any photo I have posted on Find-a-Grave is intended to be used...please consider this your permission to copy and/or post any of my photos.

When I fulfill a photo request, I do not simply take a photo of the request only. I research the surname (and often connected surnames) within that particular cemetery and photograph them all when I go. And I will never, ever take just one photo within a lot. If the lot has more than one grave, they ALL get photographed since they will all be connected in some way. This allows a person to see photos of their entire family units, plus allows me to edit and link them all together when adding the photos.

DUPLICATES: I try my best to do a thorough check before entering any memorials. I will never intentionally create a duplicate, although sometimes it just happens with the delay in the Find-a-Grave system at times. Even if my memorial was entered first, I will usually delete IF the other memorial is complete.

My interest is not in numbers but in the precious souls who walked among us on this earth. However, I would appreciate your using "the Golden Rule" when asking me to delete a memorial. Most people already do and don't have to be reminded. Just want you to know that I will never intentionally be rude to anyone.

CORRECTIONS: I'll be happy to make corrections on any of my entries if needed, or I will gladly transfer memorials to family members (at my discretion when it involves my kinfolks). I would appreciate your using the "Edit" function to request corrections.

ABOUT ME: I have lived in Sweetwater, Texas all but four years of my life. A genealogy nut, I love to help people find their family information through this volunteer work.

FIND-A-GRAVE: I am the Find-A-Grave coordinator for the Nolan County Cemeteries. The Sweetwater Cemetery is my favorite (my daughter, father & grandparents are buried there).

MY FAMILIES: (just to name a few)

HEALER
Cardwell * Hammond * Turner * Elam * Fry * Douglass

COOK
Hughes * Thomas * Lee * Beard * Willingham * Folmar

DAVIS
Free * Wyly * Bates * Stewart * Powell

Always interested in hearing from anyone with any connections to my families.

MY CEMETERY TIES: I have strong family ties to the following cemeteries:

* Sweetwater (Nolan County, TX)
* Old Bethel (Anderson County, TX)
* Frankston City (Anderson County, TX)
* Roby (Fisher County, TX)
* Rose Hill (Taylor County, TX)


THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
By Thelma Greene Reagan

Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.

Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.

Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.

Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.

Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.

Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.

Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

I just came across your bio on Sarah , I am a granddaughter of LaVerne (Hollimon) McCauley I was just @ the Mesa Cemetery & completely forgot to see if Absoloms headstone was there ; I had just discussed this with my mother as a couple other " family stories " surfaced I hadn't heard before . I'm 75% sure he is buried there as the majority of both sides of my family are , Peter & Emily Jane (York) Shelley are I know for fact. I'll be back in that area in a couple months and let you know for sure

Thank You,
Judie Gallegos

RE: Photo Attempt
Thanks. I have a copy of his death certificate. I don't manage his memorial but I did contact the lady that does. She is going to make a note on the page.
I agree, you have to love those brick walls.

Photo Attempt
Thank you for trying to find James Mouser. I very much appreciate your efforts. His death certificate claimed he was buried in Sweetwater but maybe something changed.

Good luck with your research,
Angie

Thanks first for updating "Fudge's" memorial and then kindly transferring it to me for care and keeping.

Duplicate Memorial
Janie,
You have duplicated my father's memorial and I would like you to please remove Joel Chan Edmondson dated July 9, 2015 from your memorials. I have his memorial dated 2/14/2014 and it is complete. My family is also buried in Sweetwater and you have confused my mother with this duplicate. I appreciate your help. Thanks. Robin Edmondson

RE: Joseph Glass
Dear Janie,

Thank you so much for the change on his birth date, I appreciate your time in doing this. Also thank you for the link to my address, that way if any family member searching the family tree needs the documentation, I can easily provide it. Because he is not a direct ancestor, but an uncle, it's fine for the memorial to stay in your capable hands, but thank you for offering! I read your bio and it sounds like you know Sweetwater like the back of your hand. Many of my husband's family lived there, especially back in the early 1900s. If I ever have a question about the area, I'll know who to contact!

Thanks again for your help.

Kindest regards,

Rebecca #47388083
