For a Christmas present, I decided to give my daughters and niece a photo album of relatives for a keepsake. When I visited a family cemetery to take photos of markers, I felt surrounded by a lot of love. Everywhere I looked, there were babies who never grew to be an adult. There was my great grandfather, then a great-great grandfather, and the more I dug into the census and the more questions I asked, the more familiar these people became to me. A relative came up with a family tree, tracing our Warren family back to England. I found a great grandfather near my grandfather in a cemetery that the family had visited so many times but no one had ever noticed him. Everyone has been to visit him, now, paying the respects that were long overdue. Beside him, his wife, three sons and a daughter are buried. |
I enjoy going to different cemeteries in our area and putting families together. The babies who have no parents with them catch my attention. When I list them, I hope someone finds them and adds them to their family. If I list someone who isn't a family member, I check out the census and our local history books to see if I can find something out about them. My mother has been a tremendous help, as she can recall so many details about these people and the life they lived. My husband has been there with me, wading through stickers, mosquitoes and the Texas heat.
If I have made any mistakes, please let me know. If I have listed your family member, I will be glad to transfer them and let you add them to your listings. I know how important family is to family. Speaking of family, I am researching the Warren , Knapp, Peace, Boydstun, (Boydston), French, Barnett, Carroll and Brim families and families of Navarro Co., Texas.

Very sad for one family to loose so many infants. The photo is posted. Thank you for setting up the memorial.

I believe John Henry and Lellias Mary Godfrey had another infant that died. Yesterday in the Boren Cemetery (Reagor Springs, Ellis County Texas), I found a marker for "Infant Son of JH and LM Godfrey. Born and died June 21, 1896".
Do you believe this may be the case? I will post the images if you want to establish a memorial.

Thank you very much.

Thank you so much for sending me the name information. You are very correct in the fact that it was covered in poison ivy. That is the reason I could not move it off to take a picture with all the name showing. I am HIGHLY allergic to it. I have done lots of small country cemeteries that are not tended and maintained and even overgrown and have never had problems with poison ivy. I have had 2 outbreaks due to Oakwood Cem. one of which was so bad that I had to get medical attention for shots and medication so I am very careful there now. Thank you for taking your time to research and find out her full name.

Thank you so much.
Thank you for the transfer.
|Casey Ragon Delange||RE: William T. Ragan|
This isn't my direct line, but he is in my family tree. I would be happy to add some information to this memorial! If you want to keep it, I can send you the information, or if you want to transfer it that is great too! I have researched almost everyone with the last name Ragon/Ragan/Reagan... I got a little carried away!
