Dear ancestor
Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished marble stone
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born
Yet each of us is cells of you
In flesh, in blood and bone
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so
I wonder if you lived and loved
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
And come to visit you----Author Unknown
My Family names are, Dyer, Atkins, Atkinson, Russell, Crosson, Worsham, Spears, Johnson, Dalton , Stanley, Blazer, Hardin , Micheux, Legrande. Strickland, Presley, Stanley. Adkins, Kitchens,Moss, Swinea, Miller, McFarland,Rochet.
Davidson. Bolton.
Family Names related to or some of my family married into are
Cunningham, Gray, Harris, Davidson, Hoerman, Yeager, Edwards. Some needed to be added as well.
I do this oft out of respect and reverence to the deceased. Though I may be young, I am not like the youth of my day, I am an avid lover of the past and history. I do a great deal of Atkins/atkinson family history on top of what has been done. I am family historian for the Atkins, crossons, russells, and blazers. A majority of the memorials under my name are family. I do welcome corrections/suggestions.
I have always loved cemeteries, as a child I would always beg my mother to take me out to Mugg cemetery, a small cemetery outside of town. When she would I would wonder around and ponder about the inhabitants. I have always loved cemeteries and cemetery artwork. I love taking pictures of older tombstones. Sometimes in cemeteries I can spend hours and not know it. family as seasons and decorations change.
My grandfather James Atkins helps me a lot on helping me find various cemeteries and by sometimes showing where the various graves are and the various family histories and who’s related to whom. He is listed but is not deceased. He does have a tombstone along with my grandmother Joyce who is also not deceased.
I would also like to thank those who graciously transferred my various family names under my name. Thank you in advance.
Yet another note, sometimes my family dates may be wrong, I have a family genealogy book comprised in the 1980s and a lot of the dates honestly god knows where or who they came from.
I do get busy in college and try to honestly keep up with this, when I can so please if something isn’t corrected just email me or call me a bad name but I promise I will do it. I also don't use so any details like marriage dates I don't know. I also know I have a lot of pictures to scan for my great grandparents. I just lack time.
So to all the gravers out there, keep on looking and happy haunting in your local cemeteries.

Rusk Cemetery
Sorry - I have no Russell's buried in Texas. My grandfather was an orphan who moved to Texas in 1900 but only stayed for 10 years before moving on to California with no offspring left behind. Regards - John Russell

RE: Rosa Presley
Thanks Lacey,
I don't believe Rosie is one of our direct (maybe indirect) kin. I collected Louders and associated families for years and just now putting them together with Find a grave info. I hate it when I find a memorial missing info that I have access to. Could be an OCD thing on my part. Thank you for your hard work. Joel

I would like very much to manage Charlie's account, I feel relatively sure he is a son of Joseph and Cassie.

Charlie Howard
In the bio on Charlie Howard you say that you found his parents names but do not list them; will you please add them to the bio? I am looking for a Cassa Swain Howard, who may possibly be his mother. She died on the exact same day as he did. Her husband was Joseph H. Howard. thanks!!

Worsham request for transfer
Hi, at this time I need to forgo the transfer. I have some of the Worsham's in my tree also and I use to live in Wood Co. and still live close and have a lot of work still being done on them. If I don't find a connection I will let you know.

George Crosson @ Princeton Cemetery
No, I thank you. I will transfer anyone to family members. I realized after all these memorials, that I can't take them with me.

RE: Blanche and James Russell
am happy to transfer those memorials to you, just follow procedure and go to each memorial you want transferred, click on EDIT, then SUGGEST A CORRECTION and ask for transfer that way. No need to paste any memorial numbers or your contributor ID because when you request transfers that way (the way stated in the rules) it provides all I need to make the transfer. Easy for you, easy for me!

Ruth Crosson & dau Shirley
Not until I looked at your site, did I realize just how much Shirley looked like her mom. Shirley is my cousin as are Joyce, Eddie, Little Jim, and David. Thanks for posting the pics. I've done a lot of research on the Johnsons, but it does not go back very far that can be verified. Donna H
