Bio and Links
Bio Photo There is so much history found in the graves of this great country. I have always had an interest in the stories found in the old graves in the isolated pastures and small graveyards located across the West. It is my pleasure to be a part of a group doing organized research that helps all interested people to further their knowledge in this field.

Sarah Elizabeth Isgrigg
Hi Perry,

Are you by chance related to Sarah Elizabeth Isgrigg who married Alexander Hamilton Birchfield? Sarah was my ggg grandmothers sister. You posted a wonderful photo of her on her memorial page - thank you so much for sharing that!! The sisters look very much alike. Please contact me if you are related.

Thanks again,

RE: John Bell
You're welcome. I go by this cemetery quite regularly and John Bell's spot is close to the road. I'll keep an eye out for the permanent stone and update the photos when it shows.

Hi Perry,

I'm glad to see you've left some pictures and provided some research on the Wheat family! Very helpful for my family tree.

Hope you are doing well!

James D and Peggy Thompson Graves site
I have another request. On the gravestone for James D Graves and Peggy Thompson Graves in Houston, the wedding date is on the tombstone, but I cannot read it to use it. Would you please add that inscription to the website; if it is there, that can be used by genealogists instead of a marriage license. They were married on July 7, 1946 according to the info that I have.

RE: Sarah Frances Baker
I think that I have located what I needed. James H Baker and Sarah Frances Hancock Baker are both proven patriots in the Daughters of the Republic of Texas. That source established the birth and death date of James H Baker and established that Sarah was indeed a Hancock. Sarah's maiden name is also on John Winston Baker's death certificate. I also found support in The New Handbook of Texas(1996 edition) for some of those same facts. With this line, your cousin has four patriots for the DRT. You might want to add the newspaper credit on Peggy Joyce Thompson Graves' Find-A-Grave site so that the information can be used in genealogy work. Thanks for your help; have enjoyed corresponding with you.

Sarah Frances Baker
Perry, I am still trying to help your cousin Margaret Graves connect the dots for DAR. I can't prove that the Frances Baker on the 1850 census is Sarah Frances Hancock. I have looked for a marriage license for them, but I can't find it. Do you have any proof that I could use for her?

RE: James and Sarah Hancock Baker
The lady that I am helping is Margaret Graves. She told me that the two of you have been in contact before.

RE: James and Sarah Hancock Baker
Actually, I could use a picture of John Winston Baker and Mary Elizabeth Wood's tombstone. I noticed that you were the great grandson of this couple. The lady that I am helping is the great great granddaughter of John Baker and Mary Wood.
Is there a tombstone in Washington for them?
