I was born in Port Arthur, Texas on February 1, 1958. My mother is Linda Rae Wall (1940-present) and my father was Jasper Vic Cuccia, Jr (1933-2010). I graduated from Forest Park (now called Westbrook) High School (Class of 1976) in Beaumont, Texas and from college in Jonesboro, Arkansas. I have one child, Cody, who was born on May 16, 1997.
On August 5, 2008, a local newspaper printed an article about what I've done on findagrave.com:
Turner Cemetery records posted on worldwide Internet site Mike Louviere , The Record Newspapers Published 08/05/2008 - 1:29 a.m. CDT Credit - RECORD PHOTO: Mike Louviere Chet Cuccia at the gate of the Turner Cemetery. Slide Show ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Passing by the corner of Roundbunch Road and Morning Glory, you may not have noticed the sign that says "Turner" above the gate.
But if you have continued onto Morning Glory, you will likely have noticed on the left side of the road a small, well-kept cemetery.
Only about half the allotted land is occupied by 62 graves.
Chet Cuccia of Bridge City it one day, and decided to investigate records to see who was buried there.
Cuccia had been accessing the Web site Find-A-Grave.com for about a year and had posted some family members' gravesites there.
He searched and found no records for Turner Cemetery.
One day he took a pen and pad and recorded names, birth dates and death dates of all 62 graves. He then went home and recorded all of the graves on the site.
Re: James Robert "Papa" Mahon # 221076992 is the brother of my g-father David Mahon # 13472782, may I link the two of them please? I would also like your permission to link your page to my family tree. Have a nice day. Blessings.
Herman Edwin Koenig #22303894 I notice your photo of Herman and Josephine is captioned "Herman Edwin Koenig and his second wife Elizabeth." Would you happen to know if Herman's first wife was Elizabeth Klein? Thanks for your help!
Memorial # 68817431 Would you mind please to remove the gravestone pic on that site, its unreadable and blurry. Someone else put a more recent photo of the same on there that can be read, thanks kindly.
I have a family member buried there by the name of Addila :Addie" Burgess Turner. Her memorial #is 26485941 - She is buried in the Turner Cemetery. She married Walter J. Turner, and I was unable to find him in yiur memorials.
Would you by any chance know if her husband is buried there, and if so, what is his memorial number?
Creola Virgie Hampton Poole # 47451160 Hi Chet, just letting you know that I have changed the link on my name to link to yours. I had sent you an edit telling you that yours was a duplication (which it is) however the person with the original entry for this name is gong to delete her's (or ask Find A Grave to delete it) and informed me to just link over to your entry, which I did.
You seem to have a special interest in these names. I see you added photos to my entry for the daughter already. Are you related?? If you are, please state the relationship and I will also consider a transfer of my entry to you, (depending on kinship and IF you want it).
Photo permission 30580164 Alfred Chesson I would like to ask your permission to use your photo of Alfred Chesson's grave marker in the Granger Cemetery #30580164. It has been used on Geneology.com but I know it was your photo because I have been locating the graves of my family on F-A-G so I prefer to ask permission of the original photographer before just adding a photo to my family history. I would also like to use his wifes photo. Her name is Marie Fannett. Thank you for all you have done in the Orange area.
