|Bio and Links|
I am a native Texan, born and reared in Northeast Texas. I have been researching my families for about thirty years, making me the family historian. |
I have spent weeks, days, and hours in many states researching the courthouses and walking the cemeteries looking for my family.
Just recently I began placing memorials to my family members on findagrave; a wonderful website. The majority of my postings are my family.
I try to acquire photographs of my relatives; this makes me feel as if I actually know them.
I am a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, the Daughters of the Republic of Texas and genealogy is my passion.
Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished marble stone
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood and bone
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so
I wonder if you lived and loved
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
And come to visit you
PLEASE DO NOT POST PHOTO'S OF DEATH CERTIFICATES ON THE MEMORIALS. I WILL BE GLAD TO ADD THE INFORMATION IN THE BIO.

Your very welcome. Was a beautiful day to go out and get photos.

Your welcome always glad to help
|ranny||RE: Cincinnatus and Jesse J J Shelton|
Thanks so much for clearing up the name of Ada's father. Lynn has transferred the memorial to me and I will correct the info at Ada's memorial soon. No wonder I couldn't find Nancy as I was looking for a McGee, not for a Grimes which was her maiden name.
Thanks, Randy O'Guin, ranny 47208269

I'm writing about your memorial for David C. Gilliland who died Nov. 26, 1915, and is buried at Runge, Karnes County, Texas. It sounds like you might have a copy of his death certificate. Does it mention his parents' names? I can't find a copy of the death certificate on Ancestry.com. I think I may be distantly related to him. He might be the first cousin of my Great Great Grandmother, Sarah (Sawyers) Kennedy. Her mother was Elizabeth (Gilliland) Sawyers Willis. I have several old letters written by J. W. Gilliland, his son. Thank you for any help. Karin Heymer

Great story you have posted. Do you have anymore information about Cincinattus Shelton's second wife Nancy Jane McGee/Guthrie? Her daughter Ada Guthrie #12291667 married into my O'Guin lines.
Thanks, Randy O'Guin, ranny 47208269

If you'd like me to manage it that's fine, he was my great-great-great-uncle. I can add a bio from the histories I have and will willingly transfer to a closer family member when I find them... or they find me. :-)
I saw your site and thought I would ask - Do you by any chance have a Jim or a Martha Aileen Shrum in your family? Jim is married to a Bobbette Anderson and Martha Aileen is married to a Loyd Rowton. I know this last family died in Texas, so that really made me curious. Thanks!
|sharla blevins||Margaret Tinker|
I am related to Margaret Tinker by her marriage to John Blevins whose my great-great grandfather. My great grandfather is James Franklin and my grandfather is JB Blevins.
You have some information that I didn't have. I just got some new genealogy information myself that got me back into genealogy after not researching for more than ten years.
