I have been doing genealogy for many years. My goals now are to further document and flesh out the line with interesting and less available details. I am also trying to share as much as I can on the web as this leads to meeting my goals. Please feel free to email me with additions, corrections or questions. Thank you. I often add flowers as a coutesy to other graves in the cemetery where relatives are buried, so if you think we are related, please check out my website on rootsweb which is updated on the 1st of each month. I publish all my info, so if you find a relative, check back monthly for updates. P.S. I think this is one of the most helpful sites on the net.
Thank you so much to the people who generously donate their time and money to provide information, photographs, and floral contributions to people who may never be able to thank them. I especially appreciate those who remember this is much bigger than ourselves and consistently maintain their memorials in a professional manner, treating others volunteers in the respectful way in which they like to be treated.
Please use the edit tab on the memorial to make corrections as I have entered a lot of data, and unless you provide the # of the memorial, I have no idea who you are referring to. A message posted here tends to be ignored where an email is dealt with immediately. Thanks.
Thanks so much for the edit on Robert. After getting your edit I noticed that burial records had his wife Catharine with that birthday. I decided to go out to the cemetery to see if they had a stone. They did have a stone with full dates. The records had their birthdays backwards. The correct birthdays are now on their memorials and I also added pics. Thanks again.
RE: re: Jefferson Bailey,Sr.8069124 Mary, I lost contact with you and would like to reconnect with you. I tried sending a email but got a failure notice. My email is : firstname.lastname@example.org. The last I had talked with you, you had offered to send me a copy of Jewels diary if I would pay for the copy and shipping. I so want to get a copy of it. Hope you get this!
McCuistion clarification Mary, I recently sent a couple edits for Old North Church Cemetery concerning the McCuistion family that you declined. I'm currently working on the historical preservation of the cemetery - visiting the site and cross-referencing the names and dates on the stones with Find-a-Grave data. When there is a conflict, I use death certificates, census data, and marriage records to resolve the issue. sometimes I upload photos to better show the dates on the headstones.
I think some confusion has happened due to incorrect notes in the Nacogdoches County Cemetery records. In it Ed McCuistion is listed as as Artie McCuistion's father instead of her spouse. He was her husband, as shown by the marriage records.
You have a memorial for Edwin Marion McCuistion, Sr. #15466794. On the memorial you have kindly listed his 3 wives and their children. His 3 wives are Neatie, Artie Crisp, and Elizabeth 'Bettie' Corley.
He married Neatie Sanders in 1888. She had Clara and Lucius. She died in 1893 and he married Artie Crisp (1878-1898) in 1896. I located and verified the Nacogdoches County marriage certificate for this. She had Frank in 1898 and Edwin Marion Jr in 1899. She died in 1899.
Ed M Sr. didn't marry his 3rd wife, Bettie Corley until 1901.
There was no child named Artie McCuistion born in 1898, and there is no stone marked for a baby named Artie. The only stone for Artie McCuistion is for the wife, born 1878-died 1898. She is buried near Ed McCuistion and his other two wives in the McCuistion plot. Children who died as infants are also buried there. There is no Artie infant.
The following corrections need to be made:
Memorial #15466692 - change the date of birth to 1878 to match the stone. Change Ed McCuistion #15466794 from her father to her husband. Remove the note for daughter of Ed and Bettie Corley McCuistion (Ed didn't marry Bettie until 1901 anyway).
Memorial #15467026 - Frank - change the bio to son of Ed and ARTIE McCuistion.
Memorial #15466762 - Ed Jr. - change the bio to son of Ed and ARTIE McCuistion.
I would be glad to resubmit edits for the above changes if it would be easier.
