Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for about ten years now. I am a member of the DAR and Mayflower Society, and I am constantly working to find and document anything interesting about family members. It is a very consuming hobby, but the rewards are great.
If anyone finds mistakes, needs to add info or needs me to make any changes at all just let me know. PLEASE USE THE EDIT TAB on the memorial page, it does make it easier for me to do quickly.
I do appreciate any extra info that I can add to my memorials. If I have taken a picture and it is not clear please let me know and I will be glad to go retake it, or if you would like a higher quality sent to you by email, I will try to do that.

SSW- means side by side with, usually on same stone.

The Proper Way to Clean a Headstone
from the International Association of Cemetery Preservationists

It is recommended that clean clear natural spring water only be used for cleaning historical cemetery structures. Do NOT use harsh chemicals, high pressure hoses or equipment, or abrasive tools of any kind.

Use soft-bristled brushes with natural or plastic bristles. Never use a wire brush or any metal object for cleaning. Automobile detailing brushes are very handy for cleaning historic headstones and monuments.

At one time it was recommended to use shaving cream as a cleaning agent on headstones and monuments. This came about when cemetery photography became more popular and inscriptions couldn't be read well. Do NOT use shaving cream to clean headstones or monuments. It has now been found to damage the stone because of the often high levels of alcohol and menthol in the shaving cream.

Family Transfer
Thank you so much for the transfer of GUncle Zemiriah. He's from a large family of 16 siblings spread over the US, so it's like a homecoming.

RE: Eleanor J Mayers & John J Mars
Thank you Christina! I think I figured it out. I may simply be an alternate spelling of the family name.

41055846 Rebecca Barker
Rebecca had on other child . And the only information I have on her is on the Ancestory Family trees . I do find where she married John Alexander Nunley and they lived in McKinney Texas . But until I can get some definite information on the where about of her burial I am lost at this point . Mary Leanna Rich was her name . She married John Alexander Nunley and she is Rebeccas only daughter that is listed . All 5 of her children and James Rich her husband were listed in a online will from Hinchea or Beheathlin Barker .
it is recorded that Rebecca took refuge with Mary Leanna and her husband John in McKinney Texas .. during the Civil War . Then it shows Leanna dying only about 2 or 3 weeks after the birth of her last child John De " Johnnie " Nunley . Which Rebecca apparently took back with her when she returned to Arkansas . As Rebecca and " Johnnie Nunley show up and a census living in William Jackson Riches household .
So anyway I am still researching as to where Mary LeAnna Rich Nunley is buried and it should be somewhere in McKinney Texas .

Easter Thank You 04 03 2015

In the event that I have not thanked you, personally, for the transfers that you have provided me with, I wish to do so at this time.

My retirement from all my social and family duties have dwindled down since my health has had the opportunity to allow me to beat my God given expiration date, with the help of family, fantastic physicians and hospital, and the implantation of a pacemaker. Rest is my priority when not doing some physical duties, yet Find A Grave and family ancestry tracing is still fun.

To all my Find a Grave friends, you have all been a tremendous help with your contributions to me and especially to this site.

Happy Easter, be safe, have fun and Thank You.

Do you happen to know a male direct decendant of the Kinnibrughs found at this cemetery?

My last name is spelled slightly different, and I am looking for someone that might be willing to look into geneteic testing through 23andMe. I'm interested in finding out if we have any genetic relation.
