Bio and Links
Just a guy that enjoys history and thinks that history and geneology are an important part of our lives. I was born and raised in Western Pennsylvania, and now I live outside of Houston, Texas. At home, I am trying to get as many local cemeteries listed as possible. I am currently focusing on "forgotten" and out of the way cemeteries in East Texas. I also travel quite a bit with my job, so in the evenings on the road, I visit local cemeteries and try to fulfill photo requests. I also travel back to Western PA frequently and try to get cemeteries there.

I try my best to try and find out as much as possible about each person using public records, obituaries, etc. However, I know that I will make mistakes. PLEASE let me know if there are any errors so that I can correct them.

Transfers: Please follow the FAG guidelines for transfers. If the person memorialized is not a direct relative - as defined by FAG - please do not ask for transfers.

The greatest thing about love is that no matter how many ways you divide it, it never gets smaller.

I see in the above cemetery (Irwin Pa) you have created quite a few of the memorials as well as added many of the photos of the gravestones.

There are a some memorials that you created in my tree that do not have a photo of the grave. Does that mean that there wasn't any or just that you didn't get a photo of it.

RE: Edits
I make it a policy to only include in my memorials the info that I am able to read from the tombstone. If you want to maintain the memorial, let me know and I will transfer it to you and you can be responsible for any edits.

Barbara Suter
I got your edit for Barbara Suter showing a death date of 2 March 1826. Were you able to get this from the tombstone or did you have another source? This is my husband's 4x great grandmother. I am just curious if you might have another source of information on Barbara that I haven't found. Thanks for sending this date and any other information that you can provide.

Hello Rick,
I was wondering if you would be interested in transferring this memorial to me to manage. There are other siblings that need to be added to this memorial. Also, you show him buried in Rosewood Cemetery in Humble, Harris County. This is incorrect. He is buried at Rosewood in Porter.
If not interested in transferring could you please change the location, contact me for further sibling listings. This is a very close and personal friend of my family and his wife has requested me to contact you.
Thanks for what you do with Find A Grave, and happy hunting in the future.

Duplicate memorial
Thelma Rae Rhoades Cupps 127715451 is a duplicate with 73577910. If you could merge them it would be nice. Thank you. Barbara Robinson-Galbraith

Edmund Pruett(e) was the first child of Beasley Pruett(e), jr. (grave marked wrong as sr. but his father Beasley sr. is buried in an unmarked grave and whoever put the headstone on made a mistake. Beasley jr. and his 2nd wife, Rebecca Linney, are my g grandparents. Edmund is my g uncle, the brother of my g grandmother, Lucy Pruett(e) Cole. It is Edmund who was married to #1 Lucinda Abshier and #2 Minerva Frances Waring Day, NOT BEASLEY PRUETTE Sr.(who was married to #1 Eleanor Humphrys and #2 Lucy Sims Rogers)

The 1850 Liberty County Census shows Edmund in the household of Beasley jr. and Rebecca. Beasley Pruett(e) sr. was BP jr's father from his second marriage to Lucy Sims Rogers. This is all documented in my DRT supplemental papers on my Pruette line. The name was originally spelled Pruette, then Pruett, and a host of other ways. My g grandmother and grandmother still spelled it Pruett when they left Liberty Co., but after they got to Williamson County, the census taker spelled it Pruitt and my grandfather spelled my grandmother's name Pruit on her death certificate. Very confusing. But the early French Huguenots kept their French spellings of their names on their tombstones, regardless of how they were anglicized in America and that accounts for the different spelling of my branch on their tombstones, from the group from the first wife, who spelled theirs Prewitt. They are still all the same family.

See proofs below. Attached to this email is a copy of the Liberty Co. TX census for 1850 showing Edmund born in Texas in 1846 and in the house of Beasley Pruett(e) jr. and Rebecca Linney. You can see that Pruette is spelled with the e on the end of it in this census.

DRT Vol 1( BP Jr. & RL,) , BP& Descendants, p. 109, 1850 Census Liberty Co.,TX

Please change the inaccurate information on Edmund's find a grave page.
