Bio and Links
Bio Photo In the early 1980's, I curiously began searching for my ancestors. It has gone from curiosity to a passion all consuming. There is always something new to discover!! I owe it all to my BFF, Geneva!!
For those of you who sit in front of a cemetery book or a newspaper obituary column copying deaths into a cemetery, I truly feel sorry for you. For those of you who complain about those of us who have "Unknown Burials". I believe the name of this program is "Find A Grave". The hopes of family researchers is that some one some where will FIND our lost ancestor and may even find a tombstone of that loved one. As for me, I am so proud that this site has come about where I can share my family with others and hopefully find long lost family that I would never have found otherwise. Thank you, FindAGrave.
If you come across someone I have entered in a cemetery that is your ancestor and you have pictures or a bio you would like to add, OR you would like a transfer, don't hesitate to contact me through the EDIT button. I will transfer if they are not related to me.
Please be advised that links and other data on memorials [other than those for my immediate family members] more often than not come from other Find A Grave members and/or guests and/or from Ancestry. It has come to my attention that edits/links that you don't approve within 21 days will automatically be added to the memorial. Please double check & verify all information before taking what you read as gospel.
LINKING NOTE: Too many errors have come up with people submitting "Edits". I will no longer change any memorials without a verifiable source being provided.
PLEASE-NO DEATH CERTIFICATES on memorials I have created or manage!!
VOLUNTEER PHOTOGRAPHERS: I appreciate your enthusiasm in taking tombstone pictures in cemeteries, BUT I do not appreciate additional tombstone photos on memorials when there is already a clear tombstone picture for that memorial.
FAMILY PHOTOS: I invite you to enjoy the family pictures posted, but ask that they not be copied and placed on any other website without my written permission.

RE: Maggie West # 159547472
I really don't know if they are the same or not. Have never found out. Not many people even know about those cemeteries. I think it will be ok there. Thanks

Maggie West # 159547472
This person is buried in the Ham West cemetery. I have been told that the Ham West cemetery is in Harwood (which is in Gonzales Co.),but the property it is on, is in Caldwell Co.
I believe it is on private property, and hard to get to. I have looked for it before. I was raised at McNeil community, and now live in Luling.
I have a McNeil cemetery book that my cousin put together. It is a lot of help.
Please remove Maggie from McNeil.
Thank you.

It is never a wild goose chase. We love the different cemeteries.

Thank you for getting back to me about this. I see my notes do not have a source for his middle name being "Dye"..... Oh well.

Thanks again,

RE: Tombstone photo
You are quite welcome. I took the photos quite sometime ago and am now just putting them all in. Sorry it took me so long.

RE: #156521105-Georgia Reeves
Due to the information I received from the Archivist at UT Medical Sciences Center, that the remains of those who donate their bodies are cremated and either returned to the family, or buried in a local cemetery as the family directs, I called all the major cemeteries in Memphis and Wynne (her last residence before Mustin Nursing HOme), and did not find anything.
Then I did a nationwide search and found memorial # 18908968 for Georgia F. Reeves DOB 1871; DOD 7/12/1957, located in Pioneers Rest cemetery in Fort Worth, TX. This is the same cemetery her parents and two of her siblings are buried in.

I strongly suspect that the ashes were returned to family who interred them near other relatives in Fort Worth.

Re: Arthur David Hook
I have added your requested info in the Bio section of Mr. Hook's memorial page. If you would like me to transfer ownership of the page to you, please let me know. I only set up the page because I was photographing the gravestones. I am not related to any of the Hooks family. Thanks!
