Bio and Links
Bio Photo 2013
I was born and raised in the oil fields of the Texas Panhandle, and since we did not live near either my father's or mother's family, I grew up thinking we had a very small family. After I retired, I started tracing my father's family, which, except for his immediate family, I knew very little about. I thought this would be a simple project, however, it turned into a huge project that both my husband and I love pursuing, and it keeps growing.

As we travel, we stop at any cemetery we are near (and sometimes not so near) where we know there are family members and photograph their graves and those of others who might be related (or not). All of these are added to Find A Grave to share with others.

Please feel free to use the photos I have posted on any Find A Grave memorial, BUT please give credit to my husband by showing "photo by Bill Lewis". We take them to share with others but ask that you be courteous about their use.

If you would like a memorial transferred, please ask, and if you are more closely related or it is someone that is not our family, I will be happy to transfer it.

Please DO NOT add death certificates to the memorials I have created. This is not the place for death certificates - it is a place to honor the lives of those who have gone before us.

Also, please DO NOT add obituaries, family history, or documents in the photo section. E-mail them to me and I will add them to the bio section.

Was wondering why you want me to change the place of birth from Duneweg,Jasper Co.Missouri to just Missouri. This is the town that is listed in obit as place of birth,just that it was misspelled in obit.

Find A Grave Memorial# 77857940

Thank you for the info regarding Leona's place of death. I was able to find her death certificate and verify the info you gave me and have changed her memorial to indicate San Antonio.

Please note that at the time the memorial was transferred to me, I only had the location given by the Social Security Death Index, but I always welcome corrections or additions to the memorial I manage so - thank you for letting me know about this.

I was also able to get her middle name, her father's middle name and her mother's maiden name from the death certificate so you actually gave us a lot of info! Thanks so much -

Hi, I noticed you left a token on that memorial, she was the Sister to my 4th Great Grandmother, Phoebe Bayless Brown Holybee. I found another memorial for her #15828370 where she is buried in Texas with a story of how she and son Solomon got there. Thats where the headstone and photo 1st came from. Some joker just copied and added it to this one. Thought I'd pass on the info....
