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


💕 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

Beverly, Why did you request a photo of Henry Lloyd Mahanay's monument when there is already one posted?

Memorial # 89526314

She is my grandmother and I maintain the one for my grandfather John Clarace Wilson. I was just visiting the grave sights and took my own photos and noticed that on the find a grave memorials the year they were married is wrong. The marriaged date is actually 8 Sept 1929 and not 1920.

Thank you for the edits. I have updated Mr. Mahanay's memorial. Would you like for me to transfer the Mahanay family memorials I have created to you? I am no relation.

Best wishes,

Beverly, Emory's middle name is Jack. After taking a close look at the tombstone, it appears to be the letter "J". I was wondering if it looked the same to you?
Thanks, Bill Thomas
