Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Laurel. I'm married and live in Central Texas. I just recently became involved in several groups on Facebook, Historic Texas Cemeteries and Cemetery Explorers. And also Find A Grave. I just enjoy visiting cemeteries, especially older cemeteries. I find a peace and tranquility there; I also find the history very interesting. I enjoy being able to find graves for other people, the joy that it brings to them. I personally am researching the Ioor/Joor family history after discovering three brothers buried at an old cemetery near my home. I am related to the Jones, Ritchey, Edge and Brymer families in Williamson County and Lee County. I also have my father's family at Pilot Grove Cemetery (Clark, Parker) and Hillcrest Cemetery (Allen) in Bell County. I have not added very many memorials, but I will consider transferring a Memorial to direct family. I hope that I can help you if you need a picture of a certain grave in my area. I'll do my best.

Joseph Mayhew
I am the manager for him and now I am totally confused!
I gave pictures to Linda Furr and she did the research for this man. Before passing she transferred all of those I gave pictures. I will be doing some digging for more info! Where I have confusion is Not sure if this is the same Joseph Mayhew for dates and locations do not match up! Give me a little time but do keep on reminding me! More Mayhews in Tulare County, Ca.
look at Tulare Co. Genweb Rose

I'll try to get out to the cemetery in the next week or two. A lot depends on the weather, plus all things happening this month. At any rate, I'll do my best.

J.Moses Jones
"No," not the same Gayle...
My first name + gen + swbell + . + net

Write me, and I will write you back.

My friend, dau. of:
Themlma "Becky" Jones 1919
dau. of:
Lem Harvey Jones, Sr. 1888
son of:
Jefferson Davis Jones 1861
son of:
Joseph Moses Jones 1825

I know Amanda Jane Hays m. 3 times, and something about each marriage. I have Francis Jones as father of J. Moses Jones, but no info. on him.

I tie to most of these groups at Lawrence Chapel, Williamson Co., TX, to families at Adina Cemetery, Gardner/Lawhon to the Jones group above.I have some Jones, and Hall connection, but how, I am not sure.
I think some Jones in Lawrence and Layne line of my descent.

Oddie Lee Jones 1909:
who m. twice, son of Lee Hazel Jones, m. Imogene Nola "Nola" Lawhon. She is the dau. of Clinton Walker Lawhon 1886 m. Mary Eva Briggs 1888.

Mary Eva Briggs 1888 (above) is the dau. of Samuel Oscar Briggs 1857. Mary Eva (Briggs)Jones is the sister of:

Birdie Briggs 1893 (my grandmother.)
About 3 more gens. back...William Robert Briggs 1724 (b. Scotland) m. Judith Wroe 1740.

William Robert Briggs 1724 is the son of:
Robert Briggs [Bridges] m. Mary Landon 1703.
David Landon (b. Scotland) 1679.

The Landons, are the same Landons of Landon Carter family, ie. Robert "King" Carter. The Warner/Washington/Carter/Willis lines, etc.
A few of my descents are from: the aunt of Pres. George Washington, the father of P. G. Washington, and the half-brother, Lawrence Washington. Also through the Terrills, and many more.

Clinton Walker Lawhon is the son of:
William Joseph Gardner m. Rhoda Caroline "Kate" Gardner. (Rhoda "Kate" was m. 3 times.)
Her parents: Marmaduke Gardner 1812 m. Rhoda A. Caroline Ussery 1814. (Marmaduke Gardner also m. the same Amanda Jane Hays 1837, who m. J. Moses Jones? Or is she his daughter? I need to ask Wanda.

William Joseph Lawhon is the son of:
David Ervin Lawhon 1811 m. Nancy Carr.
He was a Capt. of the Texas Rangers.
