Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a native Texan, born in Gainesville, Cooke, County, Texas on 3 March 1945. I enlisted in the U.S. Air Force and served from 1964-1968. I made my living as a mechanical engineer for Bell Helicopter for 41 years and am now enjoying retirement. My interest in genealogy was really kindled when my father died in 1978 and I inherited boxes and boxes of documents.

Martha Shackelford Abbott-Box Ce, OK
Thank you for bringing this to my attention. However, I see another, later, entry for her with a newspaper clipping of her death, and so deleted my posting.

My Hopkins family are buried in this cemetery. I photographed many other tombstone photos that day while I was there visiting my family's graves for the first time, attempting to add additional information as well. I hope I didn't make many mistakes in so doing. I'm glad you contacted me.

I, too, inherited many photos and papers from my parents many years ago in western Kansas resulting in my now being the family genealogist. I've tried to add as many of the old photos as possible to Find A Grave so other family members may see them as well...

thank you!
Thank you very much for taking a photo of the grave of my ancestor, Joseph Albert Emery. I live a long distance away from Texas, so it would have been impractical for me to travel there. Thanks again!!!
