|Bio and Links|
I was born in Cumby Texas,in 1930. My Mother was a Dodd. My Father was a Braden. My Mother was born in Tenn. My Father was born in Como, Hopkins County, Texas. I now live in California. We have Four sons, five Grand Children and Thirteen Great Grand Children, two of which were born on my 78th birthday and are identical twin boys, Mathew and Jacob. My wife Marilyn and I celebrated our sixty second Wedding Anniversary on 3/5/2012 with a renewal of our vows.|
'Bill', my Dad, passed away on May 16, 2012 after a battle with cancer, just 13 days shy of his 82nd birthday. I have made the last few posts for him from his computer so he indirectly made his last entries to his own page posthumously. (He would have gotten a kick out of that)
Our family thanks everyone for the fellowship and enjoyment that 'Bill' got from his Find a Grave friends through the last years of his life.
Requests for Find A Grave changes etc will be honored.
Peace . . .
First son of William Gerald 'Bill' Braden

Addie Lee Ussery at Northam Cemetery
She is listed in the cemetery book as having a metal funeral home sign, usually about size 4 x 6 inches. I don't know yet if a gravestone has been put up for her, but will look.

Bill and Max introduced me to Find A Grave just two years ago. It was a great journey with Bill. He always answered all of my questions and they were many. One of the first things he did was go to Riverside National Cemetery and take a picture of my dad's (L D Holmes) marker and put it on his memorial page. I had not seen it! Thank you Bill for being such a wonderful cousin.

Bill, I married Pete Holmes and he has no living relatives, they were all from Oklahoma. I live in Wolfe City, so Cumby and SS are so close to us. That is fantastic going back that many years in your family tree.

Bill, I saw you left flowers on her memorial page. Did you know her? She was my grandmother.
Your welcome and wishes for a happy new year to you too...
Hi. Check out the photo on his memorial.

You posted a photo of Troy L Brewer from Memphis, TN. His mother was Ester Mae Dodd Brewer also buried in the same cemetery (next to each other). Ester Mae was my great-grandmother and Troy was my great uncle (I am one of James Ezra's granddaughters).
Where did you get that photo? it was hard to believe I was really seeing a pic of him.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I love family history and have very few photos from that side.
Uncle Lowell passed a few years ago. Uncle Clifton and their sister are still doing relatively well as of a few months ago.
