My late husband, Walter, and I raised a son, Mark, who lives in Mississippi with his wife, Beverly; and a daughter, Judy, who lives in Colorado with her husband, Eric, and daughter, Ansleigh. Walter was a retired police officer, and I am also retired from the same police department.
I want to thank those that have left flowers for our loved ones, family and friend alike. I also wish to express a special thanks to those people who took photographs for us. God bless you all.
I have received a great deal of assistance from many people as I have researched our family, and this assistance was usually done from the goodness of people's hearts. Because of this, I have entered memorials of our family members and memorials for people I do not know that lived in the Victoria, Texas, area in the hopes this will be helpful to someone in the future.
In reference to the memorials that I have posted at Findagrave.com, I will be glad to correct any errors or omissions, or delete any memorials if you will just contact me. Also, if someone has something they want added to one of the memorials I have done, I would be glad to add that information. In most cases, I have gotten the information I have used from the local newspaper or information I have learned through genealogical research.
Concerning the photographs I have posted on memorials, please feel free to use them.
Some surnames I am researching are: Bryan, Wood, Agee, Thomasson, Hoke, Strong, Hill, Donoho (Donohoo, Donohue), Weshinskey (Wycyznski), Robertson, Hoermann, Klaus (Claus), Beam (Boehm), Gainer, Skeen (Skene), Arthur, Price, Benson, Wright and Henslee.
Memorial Naming Conventions: Non-famous Memorials - If a hyphen or an apostrophe is part of the name, use the punctuation. - Use a period after names where only an initial is known. If the full name is known, use the full name and not the initial. - Do not use any other punctuation within any Name Field. - Do not use Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names in any Name Field. - Suffixes and Prefixes do not belong in any Name Field.
First name of the deceased. Put the entire first name (if known), even if the grave marker is only an initial. Do not include titles or other prefixes in the First Name field.
Middle name of deceased. Put the entire middle name (if known), even if the grave marker is only an initial.
A familiar name of the deceased, if known; the nickname is automatically placed in quotes. A nickname is different from the real name (first or middle).
Maiden name of a married individual, if known (otherwise leave blank); the maiden name is automatically italicized and is only used if the individual was married and took the spouse's last name as their new last name. If the deceased was never married, then the last name is placed in the "Last Name" field, NOT in the "Maiden Name" field.
Last Name as you would find it on the tombstone, if the interred had more than one marriage or other possible spellings please place this information in the bio and use the family links. Do not include honorary or other suffixes in the Last Name field.
RE: Reference Corrections I am a very distant relation. I am in contact with a descendant of Susan Walker Bumgarner, but i know of no one in the family whose doing genealogy or managing profiles for findagrave.
