Bio and Links
Bio Photo My ancestry interests on my Dad's family are Germans: Bonorden and Knipling; on my Mom's family are Edwards and Vinson. My husbands family are Jentsch's, Kneuppers, Scheefs and Ruetters (all German families).

One of my goals is to 'connect' all the 'residents' of the Gause and surrounding cemeteries to their families buried there and elsewhere. I appreciate all the help I get from other FAG members with the connections and corrections, thank you!

Currently working on cemeteries in Milam, Burleson and Robertson Counties.

** I believe that those that have gone on, deserve to be known. This isn't about 'me' but about 'them'. All pictures are given freely to anyone to use but photo credit would be polite and greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I live in Southeastern Milam County near Gause, TX. I am happy to help with any cemetery locations near me.

**If you send me an email via the edit other and you don't hear from me then please use . I answer! If I don't, it means I didn't get it! Thanks ***

You was here but now You've gone,
You've left your name to carry on,
Written in stone or just pages in time;
There is no real death until you are forgotten,
So let those that read this remember you often.
***Forget You Not******

I am with you still - I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the sweet uplifting rush,
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone -
I am with you still in each new dawn.

I have deleted the Find A Grave Memorial I created and that you added Headstone photos to, because it was a duplicate of Find A Grave 218811245! The only way I could give you credit for the photos was to put the info in the Discription portion of the photos. If you have the original photos and would like to reload them, I will delete the ones I transferred. Thank you and sorry for the trouble, Melanie Hester.

Fannie Helen Moncrief
Yes, you can add her memorial to Evergreen Cemetery. I will add the picture once the memorial is created. I am going back to get another picture without the iris blocking the dates. We were at Evergreen taking photos for Historic Texas Cemeteries, a Facebook group I'm with. After we got home and I downloaded all the photos, I noticed young Helen Moncrief's stone. I found Fannie Lyon Moncrief's parents, R. W. Lyon and Sallie Folts Lyon; I sent an edit to link them to her memorial page.

Fannie Moncrief
I took pictures the other day at Evergreen Cemetery, Oliver Farms. My husband lived out there in the white house for a few years as a child. He knew Fred Oliver. Anyway, we enjoy visiting there. I downloaded my photos from the day and I had taken a picture of a gravestone that is not listed. It was the grave of a child, Helen Moncrief. The gravestone said she was the daughter of R. W. and Fannie Moncrief. An iris plant was growing in front of the gravestone so I was unable to see the dates. We will return soon and get a better look. I know she was born June in 190? and died in January 19o?. I will continue to research and go back to the cemetery for a better picture and to look more carefully for other family members.

RE: Van Nickerson grave site
How can I get a copy of that death certificate? We have not been able to locate it.

RE: Van Nickerson grave site
Thank you Holly for your reply. I sincerely do appreciate all your time and hard work you've done on this project.

I guess my question I have in my mind is: Since there is no marker for his grave, how did you know he is buried there?

Van Nickerson grave site
Good afternoon Holly, My wife is researching the Nickerson family as she is a descendant of D P Nickerson of Rosebud and Robertson county as well as Milam county. Van was a son of D P.Van died 27 Nov 1918 and according to your entry to Find a Grave, is buried in Gause City Cemetery. We were there this spring and searched for a long time without success in locating his grave. Where are cemetery records or do you have a listing showing his location in Gause cemetery? I understand it may not be marked, but if thats the case, we may want to have a marker placed. Thank you for your work in helping others in this cause.
