Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been involved in genealogy research on my family tree for many years. I gathered a lot of information from visiting cemeteries and found Find A Grave a great place to share. I finally realized that I was visiting cemeteries multiple times because of new discoveries. That is when I decided to map entire cemeteries by photographing all readable markers and providing links to families if possible. The cemeteries that are listed below have been completely photographed and uploaded in 2011-2013.

Belton Cemetary
Do you know if there is a memorial for Charles Sizemore at the Belton Cementary? His mother, Mary Cason Sizemore is buried there. She also had several still births or infants that died shortly after that birth that should be there.

Charles was the only child that survived to adulthood. When he died, his body was donated to science. But, we have heard there is a memorial to him somewhere.

Thank you,

Stefanie Sizemore Vandiver

Foster Smith
Thanks for searching for grave marker for Foster Smith at Belton. Would you kindly add a note that grave is unmarked to the memorial? I'm afraid I may ask for a photo again in the future when going over missing markers for the Smith family. Thank you!

RE: Gambrell Bible

Gambrell Bible

Do you know who has the Matthew Gambrell Bible? He was the son of John Gambrell, b. 1755; d. 1834.

I am trying to find it to help someone with a SAR application. The DAR doesn't accept John Gambrell as a Patriot at this time and the Bible may help solve the issue.

Thank you,

Glenda Patton

Julian W. Walker
Hey John,

Thank you for all your help on our family lines. You have been a great help.

I wanted to ask you about Julian W. Walker #84431871, if he was Mary Louise Lollis Crawford's # 83016365 first husband? I had saw on Louie Jean Walker's #83028449 Certificate of Death that his fathers name was Julian W. Walker. Just wanted to see if this is the same Julian.

Thank you again for your help. You have worked so hard to make sure everything is correct.

Take care, Jerrie
