|Bio and Links|
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!
** 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.

|Deb||RE: Branchville, Milam County, Texas|
I will have to research each one. It will take time. Know that I am not ignoring you or the edits but will do each individually as I have time.
A little FYI: almost all African-American cemeteries, especially the early ones or ones with really old names in it, will almost never match death certificate data. Another lady & I did a local one ... one most people are afraid to go into (with good reason). The cemetery originally had only 500 names listed in it. It now has 2230 and counting (they are buried 3 deep in some cases, so the oral history goes). It was rare that we ever found a marker with dates that matched the DC info. Some are off by as much as 20 YEARS! ... but we know its same person. In these cases we add what we can and try our best to give an explanation. We are now adding obits, as we find them. It doesn't always help explain dates but it does add to the pg so hopefully family will see it and maybe can help us sort it all out.

Thank you so much for the fine photograph of Mr. Bryant's tombstone!
If you are ever in Kansas City, MO, you might want to visit Arthur Bryant's Barbecue at 1727 Brooklyn. It's world renowned and highly recommended by yours truly!
Thanks again for a job well done!

I appreciate your detailed reply. First of all, homemade grave markings are what I look for and cherish in African American graveyards. One of my maternal great-grandfathers has such a gravestone in the St. Mary Cemetery in Ellis County, Texas. They are "legal" in every sense of the word because they were constructed with the bare minimum by loving family members who could not afford to purchase manufactured headstones. I hesitate to remove the dedication I have for Hagar Moore McKenzie unless the surname "McKenzie" is retained and "Williams" is added - maybe as a codicil in the 'maiden name' field of the find-a-grave designation. For a number of years, I have been a student of African American burial customs and practices and am very careful NOT to make assumptions as to the validity of items I find in cemeteries. Although I know that the information found on death certificates is often inaccurate, I hesitate when making decisions on what is or is not "factual" or "legal". For these reasons, I will peruse U.S. Federal Census Data for Milam County (much census data is inaccurate, as well) and let you know my thoughts on the matter of the name of HAGAR MOORE McKINZIE - documented on her death certificate. Please know that NONE of my memorials are cut and pasted from newspaper obituaries or funeral home websites, as I am not interested in numbers as much as creating accurate historical documents. Thanks, again, for ALL you do daily in preserving history...
