|Bio and Links|
After 30 years teaching in the classrooms of Texas public schools I retired at the end of May, 2005. I am fascinated by genealogy, and I spend quite a lot of time doing family research. I am now Director of Nancy Nail Memorial Library in Mart, TX. My husband and I have been married 34 years. I have a wonderful son and two great step-sons, two daughters-in-law and 8 grandchildren: 1 grandson and 7 granddaughters.|
After my Daddy passed away in 2009, I was elected to serve in his place on the board of directors of the Prairie Hill Cemetery Association, Limestone County, Texas. My husband is the president of the Kirk Cemetery Association, Limestone County, Texas.

|Carol Kaye||RE: Midkiff Cemetery|
You are so welcomed Patricia. Please allow me a minute to brag on the folks in Ohio County, Kentucky, who are responsible for this picture. Helen McKeown, our prized historian, has organized a "Cemetery Clean Up Committee" (of which I am a part of) three years ago. The Committee chooses one cemetery a month during the summer months to clean up. She gets the sheriff and a few prisoners to show up with chain saws, weed wackers and lawn mowers and we clean up a long neglected site and search for fallen headstone and right them. It usually takes all day. The cover picture on this cemetery was taken after the clean up. Only the locals even knew the cemetery was there before the clean up. Now the locals are going to erect a sign and keep the cemetery cleaned up.
I am proud to be a part of this organization and pass the information along so others will follow Helen's hard work in their own areas.
Thank YOU for being a part of FindaGrave.

Hi Patricia! I'm so sorry i haven't gotten back to you sooner - i've been so busy with work and research! I will keep checking the memorial and look forward to when you find a circa '63 photo of Richard in uniform! That would be awesome! :) Have a nice day and thanks for corresponding with me!

You are very welcome! As long as there is a photo, then they are not forgotten.
|Jerry Greer||RE: Martin Memorial Cemetery|
Your are very welcome. It was an honor for me to be able to do this for the family.

Sorry about the dbl msg! I was not done adding to and tidying up my first msg; somehow accidently hit a key that took me bk a page then returned to the page and the text was still there in the box so I finished it up and posted it. I guess it did post the first time. Sorry about that! :P

Patricia, Thank you so much, for so promptly including the additional information about his change in assignment/location; and for including the supporting CE documentation/citiation! May he rest in peace... ~Linda
PS: would you happen to have a photo of Officer Williams in his DPD uniform (or even out of uniform) from around 1963 to post on his memorial? That would be fantastic as neither I nor any other JFK researchers have been unable to find a contemporaneous photo of him. In addition to researching writing bios for law enforcement officers who worked on the JFK assassination, I spend countless hours doing genealogical research on them, then searching for photos in their old yearbooks and trying to match them to those of unknown officers in photos from Dealey Plaza, the DPD, Texas Theater etc...to try to complete the historic record. (I don't want to take all the credit for this, of course. There are several other good researchers i know, around the US, Canada, the UK, and Belgium who do this work as well. We all work together and help each other out toward this goal.) Thanks again!

|J C||RE: Welcome|
Thank you for the welcome. I have loved researching my family history for at least the last 10 years. I find the information from cemeteries to be some of the most fascinating. I just visited Nashvillle, TN to photo my grandmother's grave along with her husband, siblings and parents. I plan to use some of my free time to help others who are looking for photos of graves that happen to be near me.
