|Bio and Links|
I was born Oct. 6, 1937 in Houston,Texas. At the age of 17, I married W.W.(Bill) Forsythe and moved to East Texas where my husband was born and raised. I am the mother of three sons, and one daughter. Seven grandchildren, four great grandchildren and one deceased great grandchild. My husband and I were always very interested in Genealogy. On his paternal side we were able to go back to 1724 and went to all of the places that they had settled in the United States. From Scotland and Ireland to West Virginia, Kentucky, Indiana, Mississippi, Louisiana, and then on to Texas. |
On my paternal side,(Gifford)We also visited all of the places that they lived. We were able to go back to 1634 when my ancestor settled in Massachusetts. From there my direct line went to New York, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Illinois, Florida, and then Texas. All of our other lines,(to mention a few of mine are Arn, Peters, Koopman, Barwick, Robinson,Lyles, Parkman,etc., Bills side, Landrum, Johnson, Renfro, Franklin,etc.) have also been traced.
In early 2006, my husband was diagnosed with Glioblastoma 4, cancer of the brain. Very fast acting and no possible cure. He passed away in July of that year. It was a tremendous loss to me and my family. We were married 51 years, l month and 13 days.

I want to add the headstone photo for Benjamin Gifford Sr to his memorial. I just don't want the photo to be above his portrait, I want to put it below it. I have been a Find a Grave member less than 2 years, so maybe you can answer my question. Do you know how this can be done?
Sincerely, Ron Kinney

My grandmother was a Gifford. William was my 5th great uncle. His brother Joseph was my 5th great grandfather.
Thanks, and all the best to you.
|Barbara Hammons Davis, Dalt's Mom||Re: Dalton|
Hello, Thank you for thinking of my son. Our children are a joy and Dalton left the world and my family and his friends so much richer for having him in their lives.
You have endured so much. I know your pain never goes away but it gets easier as time passes. Dalton brought so much joy and laughter into our lives. I know your own boy soothes your heart. Peace to you. God loves you. We are the special mothers that he favored with special children. We are the mothers of angels.
