Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born, raised, and educated in Texas. I served in the U.S. Navy, worked for the Virginia Employment Commission in Portsmouth, Virginia, the Baltimore City Police Department in Maryland, and finally, The Methodist Hospital (now named Houston Methodist) in Houston. After 20 years at the hospital, I retired and moved back to my hometown.

Other than my own family members, I'm not related to any of those I enter on Find A Grave and I'm unable to provide any further information about my entries except what was in an obituary or what I've researched.


Please do not put Death Certificate photos on my memorials. I appreciate your research; however, the information on death certificates is not always accurate and, the COD doesn't need to be seen.

Please use the Edit tab which is at the top upper right side on each memorial, to correct names, dates, place of birth and/or death, add parents and/or spouses, and plot information.

To request transfers, send notification of dupes, or additional bio information, please, use the Suggest a Correction (SAC) which is the last bulleted item on the Edit tab.

DO NOT use the public message (PM) for transfer requests as they will be ignored.


A big thanks to all who have visited and left flowers and notes for any of my entries, including my family members and my fur babies. Thanks also to those who've sponsored several of my entries. It is very much appreciated.

RE: Jack Morse picture
Hello Ruth,
I was happy to add the photo. I would like to update it when the stone is actually engraved with her death date. I will make a note of it but if I forget please remind me. Sometimes it takes weeks before the stone is engraved.

Wishing you well,
Mi Jo

Hello Ruth,
Thanks for your proposed edit. Did you look at the actual DC? It has his DOD as Jan. 7, 1912, but if you look at the date the doctor attended him is Jan. 6, 1913 and he signed it at the bottom 1913. See the child's age on the DC. I think 1913 is actually correct.
Your thought?

RE: Greer--Sims
i am sorrow about that. I was checking Josie French Havens and noticed Sallie Brown French was her mother
and thought she may have had a connection to you since you had created the memorial and your name is Brown. I know the French are connected to the Simms I just don't know how.

Thanks for your prompt reply
