Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi! My name is Carolyn, I am retired. I have been researching my Family Tree for thirty years. I think it is important to know your ancestors. I have been concentrating on my mother's side of the family. This includes the Broussard's, Carr's, Hargraves' and Hamshire's. I have been taking pictures of graves in southeast Texas cemeteries: Broussard's, Landrum, Fairview, High Island, Port Bolivar, Caplen, LaBelle, Pace and McGaffey in Sabine Pass, Restlawn in Vidor, Evergreen in Orange, Magnolia and Forest Lawn in Beaumont. This is Jefferson, Chambers, Galveston and Orange Counties. I have over 2,452 photos, and some are not related. If I have made any errors please contact me and I will gladly correct it. I have spent many, many hours researching. I am looking for George Washington Hargrave's, Matilda Hampshire Hargraves, and Levi Carr's graves if you can help me I would appreciate it.
I am working on my father's side of the family now. I am looking for Jeff Taylor. My grandfather. Also, Moorman, my grandmother's maiden name and her mother was a Rivers. If you have any information on these names, please email me.
Enjoy my research! Thank you. Carolyn

Alex Broussard
There are two entries for Alex in the Magnolia Cemetery.

Would you consider removing your memorial?

wrong cemetery
Hi Carolyn,
Your listing for "Walles Benjam F., Sr." 1881-1964 places him in the incorrect cemetery. He is buried in the Mary Williams Cemetery and NOT the Walles Cemetery which are nearby.
Just trying to correct an error I found.

Silas White
Hi Carolyn. I have an edit in for Silas White updating his place of birth and death. Information was obtained from his death certificate and verified with other documents on Ancestry. Would you process it at your convenience. I appreciate it. Kerry

RE: death certificste
Hi Carolyn,

I sent the email again. Here's what I said in it:

Thanks so much for the copy of the death cert. I'm sorry that you've had hardships and I hope that things are looking up now.

As you can imagine, OK senior's death was a defining event in my grandmother's life, because she had 3 children at home then, ages 14, 12, and 10. The oldest was my father. Even though OK senior was a state employee and was injured on the job, there was never any compensation--probably because of the depression.

I visited Vidor a few years ago with my Uncle Ed! Currently he's the only surviving son of OK senior. It was great to visit all the places of his childhood in Beaumont and next door in Vermilion Parish. We even went by the house on Euclid. We stayed at the LaQuinta in Vidor while we were there.

Best wishes,

So sorry to hear about your shingles, Carolyn. I keep hearing that I should get the vaccine, but I still haven't. No hurry for the death cert. We don't have to worry about the facts changing!

Best wishes,

RE: Burrell Cemetery
OK. I sent you one Broussard and one Hargraves. I didn't have Carr. I also see a duplicate of one of your Broussard that was put in that I now have. I'll get it deleted. Thanks for taking a few. Kerry

RE: Burrell Cemetery
Broussard, Francis, Hargraves, Johnson, Lyday, Northen, Wilson and an unknown. I have inherited a lot of memorials from people that no longer care to care for them. I'm trying to pass some along in hopes the memorials will get worked faster. Let me know if you are interested. I hope you are feeling better now. Kerry.
