Bio and Links
Bio Photo PHOTOS: Any photo I have posted on Find-a-Grave is intended to be used...please consider this your permission to copy and/or post any of my photos.

When I fulfill a photo request, I do not simply take a photo of the request only. I research the surname (and often connected surnames) within that particular cemetery and photograph them all when I go. And I will never, ever take just one photo within a lot. If the lot has more than one grave, they ALL get photographed since they will all be connected in some way. This allows a person to see photos of their entire family units, plus allows me to edit and link them all together when adding the photos.

DUPLICATES: I try my best to do a thorough check before entering any memorials. I will never intentionally create a duplicate, although sometimes it just happens with the delay in the Find-a-Grave system at times. Even if my memorial was entered first, I will usually delete IF the other memorial is complete.

My interest is not in numbers but in the precious souls who walked among us on this earth. However, I would appreciate your using "the Golden Rule" when asking me to delete a memorial. Most people already do and don't have to be reminded. Just want you to know that I will never intentionally be rude to anyone.

CORRECTIONS: I'll be happy to make corrections on any of my entries if needed, or I will gladly transfer memorials to family members (at my discretion when it involves my kinfolks). I would appreciate your using the "Edit" function to request corrections.

ABOUT ME: I have lived in Sweetwater, Texas all but four years of my life. A genealogy nut, I love to help people find their family information through this volunteer work.

FIND-A-GRAVE: I am the Find-A-Grave coordinator for the Nolan County Cemeteries. The Sweetwater Cemetery is my favorite (my daughter, father & grandparents are buried there).

MY FAMILIES: (just to name a few)

Cardwell * Hammond * Turner * Elam * Fry * Douglass

Hughes * Thomas * Lee * Beard * Willingham * Folmar

Free * Wyly * Bates * Stewart * Powell

Always interested in hearing from anyone with any connections to my families.

MY CEMETERY TIES: I have strong family ties to the following cemeteries:

* Sweetwater (Nolan County, TX)
* Old Bethel (Anderson County, TX)
* Frankston City (Anderson County, TX)
* Roby (Fisher County, TX)
* Rose Hill (Taylor County, TX)

By Thelma Greene Reagan

Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.

Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.

Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.

Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.

Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.

Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.

Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

RE: Nora Vieregge
Good morning, I have a photo of her and her obituary if you would like me to send it to you. OR, I can post it to her memorial page. Please let me know which you would like. Nora was the wife of my 4th cousin 2X removed (Archie 1896-1944).

RE: Alma Turnbow Boyd
Thank you for the information on Alma Janie. I didn't know that she had passed away. She was my uncle's sister-in-law and I knew her well when I was younger. The older Turnbow's are almost all gone now. My mother's sister married the oldest Turnbow son.

Thank you again for all your help. You are truly a blessing.

Wade Edwin Forester, Jr.
We buried my husband's grandfather yesterday. He passed quietly on January 31, 2015.

"Little Wade" is buried in the Forester plot at the Roscoe Cemetery, surrounded by cottonfields and new-fangled windmills. 'Little Wade' sleeps with his fathers, now. Surrounding the Forester stone are Wade E Forester, Jr.; his parents Wade E Forester, Sr.& Marjorie Neblett Forester; his grandparents, Valentine Forester & Martha McBurnett Forester; his great grandfather, Aaron Liberty Forester (his wife passed while visiting family in Tennessee and was buried there). Nearby, in the McBurnett plot, are his great grandparents, Elbert Byron McBurnett & Harriet Clarinda Hand McBurnett. space above his mother, Marjorie Neblett Forester.

Genesis 49:29 "And he charged them, and said unto them, I am to be gathered unto my people: bury me with my fathers in the cave that is in the field of Ephron the Hittite."
