Bio and Links
Bio Photo This site helps preserve our family histories and information that can fade with time from our cemeteries. I'm glad to be able to contribute and want to thank all of you who have contributed to this wonderful resource.
My husband deserves many thanks for driving me to cemeteries or stopping at ones we see along the road as we travel. He helps me watch where I step and for things that crawl. He has walked many of these cemeteries with me or patiently sat waiting for me.
My Great-Uncle Will walked the cemetery in Cherokee, Texas with me when I was in grade school and told me about some of the people buried there. I wish I had been old enough to realize how important that information was. He was from the time when the men in the community dug the grave for someone for free and it showed love, honor, and respect.
At that same time in my life my Grandmother told me not to step on the graves as a way to show respect. She was also an example of love and respect in her actions as I watched her clear the weeds from my Grandfather's grave by chopping them with a hoe.
If I've created a page for one of your family members or friends, I will respect your request and happily transfer the page to you. Please use the Edit tab on the page to request the transfer so all the information is available.

I found the record on a cemetery transcript on the Pike County GenWeb site.

If this is one of your kin, I have no problem transferring him.

I've sent multiple requests for transfer of my Great Grandfather's memorial that have received no reply at all. Was curious what else was needed for this to happen?

York Family Edits
Betty, I sent requests a couple of weeks ago for linking Felix Thomas York to his parents, his second wife, and to his daughter, but now that new edit features have kicked in, I was able to do the links myself. They just need to be approved, so that will save you the time and effort of doing them. Thanks for adding my uncle and some of his family!

Thanks, Betty!

I have linked Edith to her parents. I did not have her mother's name, so I appreciate the info. Any idea what her mother's maiden name was?? I will do some looking, and if I find it will let Rick know (the creator).
