Bio Photo Note relating to Fannin County, Texas cemeteries: they have a very nice website that may immediately offer the photo you are looking for. I am trying to get them to transfer these to FindAGrave website. Find it here:
Photo Takers: please note flour and chalk and other previously accepted methods will actually damage old stone; please read these hints for using tin foil, and for flashlights to help light hard to read stones:

Please have compassion for others and if you cannot reply in a positive way, then don't reply at all.

My husband lost his battle with esophageal cancer Nov. 2014, his memorial # 139923728.

We are all fighting our own private battles and don't need the negativity. If I don't thank you promptly, please don't be harsh. I always thank volunteers as soon as I can.

Please be kind in your messages to everyone on the site.

I will put in a blanket THANK YOU here for all who do my edits/corrections; I submit too many edits and corrections to open and reply to each one, but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate your time and effort in doing them.

I am a member of and have had my DNA analysis completed, which connected me to many, many relatives, both close and distant cousins, and many I have made connections with. It also enabled me to find additional relatives on my tree because we are linked by our DNA. My personal heritage shows Great Britain and Ireland as my distinct lineages.

** From Wichita, Manhattan, and Wamego, Kansas, living in Dallas, TX area (Garland, Sachse, Caddo Mills, Celeste) since 1982. My paternal ancestors came from Ireland (Conley/Etchison/Loy/Grimes) and my maternal ancestors from Switzerland/Germany/England (Shoup/Brandon/Elledge/Boone) who migrated to Kentucky/Tennessee then to Kansas. Daniel Boone is connected in both my maternal Brandon (Edward 'Neddie') and also my paternal Conley line (Daniel & Edward's brother George W), and there is also a Lincoln connection I am sorting out because they all lived near to each other.

My husband's paternal ancestors (Siebert, Schmidt) were Russian Mennonites from Karolswalde region, Russia who migrated to Pawnee Rock, Kansas in 1875 to avoid religious persecution and brought with them the Turkey Red Winter Wheat to the U.S. His maternal ancestors immigrated from France (Breault, LeBlanc) to Kankakee, Illinois, then to Clyde-Clifton, Kansas, a French community.

Military connections: my father, a Purple Heart veteran, was a Marine, 2nd Div., Pacific, in WWII in the Special Services/Intelligence team and was at all the island battles;
his father was in Army in WWI;
my brother in law, Timothy Siebert, was in Army, Ft. Campbell, KY, 101st Airborne, Desert Storm and Desert Shield.

RE: Arzetta Smith
You are very welcome. I tried to find Ethel Pearl's grave again yesterday but was unable to locate it. My guess is that this is an unmarked grave, but I can check with the sexton the next time I am at Greenwood.

Photo Requests in Rose Valley Cemetary, Cowley, Kansas
Hello, I drove out to Rose Valley Cemetary today to find & photograph your 5 requests. Unfortunately, I did not find any of them. This is a very small rural cemetary, with only approximately 280 internments. I walked carefully through it twice searching for your names. The problem I see is that it is also an old cemetary & many of the headstones are no longer visible due to the ground taking over. The older headstones are mostly situated in,family plot areas. I am sorry that your requests could not be filled. I am sure they are no longer visible without digging.

Douglas is my great grandfather. How are you related to the Conleys? His father was William Conley and mother Eliza Ryan Conley. I live about 30 miles from a lot of my ancestors.

RE: Patricia Grimes
I talked with Harold and Phyllis' daughter and she pointed me in the right direction to find their stone. Turns out they are on the back of Harold's parents' stone, and I didn't look back there. Their daughter would like to contact you to compare Grimes family information. If you wouldn't mind visiting with her, you can e-mail me at, and I will get your e-mail address to her. Thanks for considering her request.

Patricia Grimes
I went to the Mount Hope Cemetery this evening again looking for the Grimes family. I think the Patricia you are looking for is the one that was born in 1933 and died in 2013. My thought on this is that the person who posted the other Patricia Grimes page must have made a mistake on the date of death.

As far as Phyllis and Harold Grimes, I am still not able to locate a stone for them. The next time I see their daughter I will ask her if they even have a stone, and if so, where is it, because it is not where the cemetery records says it should be.

If I am successful, I will post the pictures. Otherwise I will let you know that there is no stone.

Mary Ann Eirp Clemons
I received your message that there are 2 Mary Ann Clemons Find a Grave profiles. I am aware of this. What happened was someone took over the Mary Ann Earp Clemons profile and the information of her parents and siblings is all wrong. I contacted them and tried to get it changed but they refused - they REALLY REAlly want to be related to Wyatt Earp and it is not correct. I have done extensive research on the Eirp line and the relation is clear back in the early 1700's. So I created my own profile for my great great grandmother which has the correct information on it.

Joseph Connelly, Mississippi
Hi, I have a cousin who married into the Connelly family. I noticed that on your memorial here for Joseph Connelly, you noted that he was the "h/o Linda Sprague." I found an Elizabeth Sprague Connelly in New Orleans during my research. Do you suppose the "Linda" is the "Lizzie" (Elizabeth) I've found with this family? Thank you.

RE: Alexander Brandon
Please note the second photo. He was buried in another cemetery that was moved to expand the airport. This is where he and hundreds of others were laid to rest in the 1990's

RE: George W. Brandon
The Dover cemetery is a very old cemetery with many interesting individuals. Davy Crockett's Brother has two children buried there along with many Revolutionary war veterans as well as Civil war veterans. One of interest to you probably was Col. Nathan Brandon who donated the land for the cemetery and the Christian church. If you have not done so read his biography along with the background of the Dover cemetery. R. B. Lane, JR
