Bio Photo NOTES EDITS
Requesting a transfer through the Edit feature insures that no mistakes are made because it takes me to the EXACT memorial you want plus it provides me with all the numbers I need to complete the transfer or add information. I manage too many memorials to research each one. If I find out later that an edit sent to me is not accurate, I may change it.

I love to see the memorials come alive with biographies and family history....and photos of our loved ones. I just LOVE it when I can help someone!!!
I have been researching some of my families since about 1978.

FAVORITE SAYINGS:
From one of the stones: "As you are now, so once was I, As I am now you soon shall be"

"A person's life was more than the dash between years...." That dash represents your entire life and we need to live it wisely.

From my mother: "Bad deeds and words will follow you all your life and come back to haunt you."

My grandmother went to cemeteries with me, and once said she would like the following to be on her stone: "WE LIVED TOGETHER, WE LOVED TOGETHER AND NOW WE REST TOGETHER". I Just fulfilled that request!!!!

BY WORKING WITH FIND-A-GRAVE WE ARE LEAVING OUR OWN LEGACY FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS. IT IS TRULY A LABOR OF LOVE.

MESSAGE BOARD
PLEASE DO SEND A MESSAGE TO ME IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS OR SOMETHING NICE TO SAY!

PHOTOS: PLEASE GIVE CREDIT FOR PHOTOS THAT ANYONE HERE ON FIND-A-GRAVE HAS SUBMITTED---IT IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO.

I recorded and submitted the ORIANA CEMETERY, near Peacock, Stonewall Co., Texas in about 1986, which can be found on the internet by doing a search. (It was possibly submitted to interment.net)
The Oriana Cemetery at findagrave is here.

Hi,thank you for her parents names.They have been added,plus I went to her death cert., and got her birth & death info to add. I'm trying to research and add any info I can find to my listings, but it will take awhile. I've walked at least 37 cemeteries, and added the pictures and memorials to this site,and I'm now taking one cemetery at a time and doing what research I can. So any and all new info given is appreciated.

Matt, there are two entries for Thomas....I added the photo to both of them, in case you want to remove one of them. One of them doesn't have the dates.

One is the father, one is the son, The Jr is the one that should have the photo. So please remove the photo from Memorial# 24578301

RE: Declined to change her name
Please remove the notation from her bio. I was attempting to correct the spelling of Florence and managed to misspell the correction. Normally I pay closer attention to what I'm typing. Her name is Florence and you have everything thing correct.

RE: I found Eva Dugan
I compiled this bio for Mr. Mathis...he's on Findagrave too with a dead link in the bio (68942717). Sent to original contributor Marilyn. No death cert for him for some reason...
~~~~~~

Andrew J Mathis, Tucson rancher and farmer, was found one year after his death in January 1927 buried in a shallow grave by encrusted in lime and with a gag in his teeth. He was found by a camper from Oklahoma, J.F. Nash, while Nash was driving a tent stake. Police charged his former housekeeper, Eva Dugan, with the murder although the evidence was circumstantial. Mr. Mathis fired her two months after she began work for him. He was wealthy, reclusive, demanding, cheap, and they apparently butted heads. An acquaintance of Mr. Mathis said he'd been present when Mathis had told her to leave the ranch and never return. A few days later, Mathis' neighbors reported him missing and became suspicious when Eva offered to sell them some of Mathis' livestock. She claimed that Mathis had departed for California, and had turned all of his property over to her. Shortly after this, Eva also turned up missing. A search of the ranch by local law enforcement did not find a body, but they did find the burned remnants of his ear trumpet in the small stove in the front room, carelessly discarded clothing, and a bloodstained cover of his roadster. In March 1927, Eva was arrested in White Plains New York and denied any responsibility for the death. She alleged Mr. Mathis had been killed by a drifter named Jack. Some investigators thought there was a possible connection between Jack and a young murderer named Edward Hickman (the Fox) who was in Phoenix a few days before Mr. Mathis disappeared and who was in Kansas City during the same time Eva said she dropped Jack off in that city on her way to New York. Mrs. Dugan was the daughter of William M. McDaniel of Missouri; she married at age 16 and was abandoned by her first husband after they had two children. She later married four other husbands all whom disappeared. Mrs. Dugan was charged with first degree murder and convicted. She was the first Arizona woman to be hanged and was executed on 21 February 1930 in Florence.
