Bio and Links
Bio Photo Since retirement, I have had lots of time to work on genealogy for my family and my husband's family. I enjoy visiting cemeteries and recording the burials to help others find their relatives.

When requesting a transfer, please tell me how you are related to the individual. I'm not a stickler for the 4 generation rule, but I do like to know your connection to the person.

PLEASE DO NOT ADD DEATH CERTIFICATES TO MY MEMORIALS. There are family members who do not wish to have death certificates displayed. If you need a death cert, there are several places to look them up.

Memorial# 54432918
Please remove this listing for Arthur Halbrooks, it is a duplicate to one that was posted in 2008, 2 years prior to your posting. I am on the board for this cemetery and removing this would help keep the inventory more accurate.

Thanks for all you do to contribute

Hi Maggie,

SEALE family

I have some information on SEALE family--

Thanks for the exact marriage date of Daniel and Sarah. The following is what I have on this SEALE family.

Daniel Boone Seale b. 1807 d. ca. 1866.
He married Sarah Phillips in Hinds Co. Mississippi about 1830/31. The children I have listed for this couple are:
Ellender Jane SEALE (1831-1897) married ? Goode; *Benjamin Franklin SEALE (1834-1879); Joshua SEALE (1838-?) ; Lydia Ann SEALE (1836-1926) m1 ? SMITH, m2 ? FROST; Elias Phillip(s) SEALE (1845-1924); Susan SEALE (1840-?) m. ? Jeter; William Ham SEALE (1848-1925) ; Clarenda SEALE (1848-1919) m. ? Morgan; ; Mary E. "Molly" SEALE (1851-1931) m. DeWeese; and Emily SEALE ( ?- 1865)

Sarah and Daniel were buried at Hog Eye Cemetery outside of Bastrop Cemetery (County) which,as of date of research, was no longer visible. They moved west to Bastrop TX to avoid Civil War fever; they later died of Malaria or some other fever in Texas at that time.

I have more however, I am not at my home location and can not give you any exact details. My cousin, who lives in Pasedena TX, spent 20 plus years researching the SEALE families.

Our grandmother, Emma Elizabeth SEALE (1877 -1955) m. Will Kurtz STEGER 1898 Hunt Co., Quinlan, TX. Emma was the youngest child of *Benjamin Franklin SEALE and Martha Margaret BARROW(E). Grandaddy Will and Mama Steger had 4 children: Raymond Leon (1899-1973), Oma Madge (1901-1901), Mary Ethel (1905-1983) and Paul Kurtz (1910-1953).

Raymond, my maternal grandfather, married Ruby Ann STALLINGS (1905-1984) on 22 May 1924 in Snyder TX. They lived in Dexter, Chaves Co., NM and Quinlan, TX. They had two daughters M.A. (1924- living) and *Emma Doris (1929-1979) Papa and Nannie Steger divorced 1942. Papa remarried twice (??), no other children; Nannie remarried (J.E. PRICHARD of Elida, NM) March 1943, no other children. My aunt Margie m. 1941 to Wm L. WITT (1941-1996) they had two children W.L b. 1942; S.A. b. 1948 Both are living. W.L. m. 1961 and has 4 children; he lives in TX. SA never married and has no children. she lives in NM.

My mother, Emma Doris STEGER, m1 D.D. WOLFGANG (living) 1948 div 1950; m2 P.J. PAINTER (living) 1951... She is buried South Park Cemetery, Roswell, Chaves Co., NM.
She had two daughters: both living F1 b. 1949; F2 b. 1951. Both reside in NM.

I am the child of Doris and WOLFGANG. I was born 1949 in Sterling Arenac Co., MI and grew up in NM. I have lived in ME, NC, TX, Il, AZ, CA and NM. I married L.G. LOY 11 Nov 1966 Chaves County, NM. We have two children: Kevin (1970-) and Kristin (1973-). Kevin is married and has one son, Cory, (1994) they live in NM. Kristin is married and has one son , Fennon (2000) they live in CO.

It seems to me that if you are related to Daniel and Sarah SEALE, we are distant cousins. I would be interested in sharing information with you and other SEALE family. Please e-mail me at or

If you are not related to W. Aretes Welch, then I would greatly appreciate the transfer to #46832186
I emailed you to notify you that a group of us have found this stone in Janes Cemetery, Ravenden Springs, Randolph County, Arkansas. It has been a big project to identify. It took us over 2 weeks to make out enough letters to identify the stones engraved name!

Dr. Joseph Gillespie Moore (#44877744)
A biography and an interesting document have been added to the memorial for this Confederate physician. As you can see, I am confused by the
bronze marker on his grave.

Thanks again,

Dr. Joseph Gillespie Moore
With regard to the transfer request found in my earlier message today, I failed to tell you how I am related.
Please accept my apologies for that omission.

Cornelius Moore, also buried in the Powers Chapel Cemetery is my gr gr gr grandfather. He bought land adjacent to the present cemetery before it existed in 1855. This land remained in our family until year 2000 and is a Texas Heritage property. My mother was born on this land in 1927.

Dr. Joseph Gillespie Moore is the first born son of Cornelius Moore. He is the brother of my gr gr grandmother, Carolina Moore née Watkins who inherited the land. Dr. Joseph Gillespie Moore has no descendants other than descendants of his brothers and sisters like me.
While I have dozens of other family members buried in Powers Chapel Cemetery, I am asking for this one transfer to "bioengineer" as a courtesy. The memorial he will provide for Dr. Joseph Gillespie Moore is important to my family and the many relatives alive in the area today. Many thanks for your help. Patricia Byers Brannon,

Re: Memorial # 44877744

He is buried in Powers Chapel Cemetery, Falls County, Texas and is my family who owned land adjacent to the cemetery from 1855-2000 where Joseph lived immediately after the Civil War. I have been in touch with another findagrave contributor,
Bioengineer #47026824, who has researched Joseph Moore and discovered new information. This gentleman, F. Terry Hambrecht, M.D., is the Senior Technical Advisor to the National Museum of Civil War Medicine. Please transfer this memorial to him so he can post Joseph Moore's biography and CSA service for my family.

As an FYI, I am the historian for the Powers Chapel Cemetery Association of Falls County, Texas.

Your transfer will be most appreciated.

Transfer request
Hello, Maggie,
Please consider transferring this gravesite to my name, Juliet Wills #49098574, for Rachel Donaldson
was grandmother to my beloved Granny Priddy out of
Mississippi. I started researching Rachel Donaldson and family in the 1990s and have all children's names listed in her and husband Joseph Wallace Donaldson family bible (extant). I do have extensive research data to add including the children's families and ancestral generations back to South Carolina. I greatly appreciate this consideration!
