Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born, raised, and educated in Texas; served in the U.S. Navy, worked for the Virginia Employment Commission in Portsmouth, Virginia, the Baltimore City Police Department in Maryland, and finally, The Methodist Hospital (now named Houston Methodist) in Houston. After 20 years at the hospital, I retired in 2001 and moved back to my hometown in central Texas.

Other than my own family members, I'm not related to any of the people I enter on Find A Grave and I'm unable to provide any further information about my entries except what was in an obituary or what I've researched.

Please do not put Death Certificate photos on any of my memorials. I appreciate your research; however, the information on death certificates is not always accurate and, the COD does not need to be seen.

<>~<>~<> A T T E N T I O N <>~<>~<>

Use the Edit tab which is at the upper right of each memorial. Click on the appropriate selection to correct names, dates, place of birth or death, add parents and/or spouses, and plot information.

To request transfers, send notification of dupes, or additional bio information, please, use the Suggest a Correction (SAC). DO NOT use the public message (PM) for these requests as they will be ignored.


Note: I am NOT transferring outside the four generation guidelines so please, don't ask.


A big thanks to all who have visited and left flowers and notes for any of my entries, including my family members and my fur babies. Thanks also to those who've sponsored several of my entries. It is very much appreciated.

I would appreciate it if you would transfer management of the memorial to my sweet aunt, Juanita Frith, Find A Grave Memorial# 112747029, to me. I have a massive amount of family information I would like to add to her memorial. Thank you.

RE: Tranferred Memorials Deleted
Thank you so much for that information. I will surely check on this. I get frustrated when ask for a transfer and discover later it has been deleted.

I am very new to Find A Grave and learn so much from other contributors that pass on their experiences from their years of hard work here. I certainly appreciate all the help I get. Some things I learn by the seat of my pants (know not to do that again).

Thank you again for your help, I appreciate it very much.

Yreva Estell Nelson
Yes I see that is confusing but it is a TYPO in her obit. Her father's name was Elbert Boyd Teston and her mother was Willie Catherine Triplett. Her first marriage was to Donald Homer Pemelton and she married 2nd in 1974 to the Nelson man. If you go to and type in Margaret Susanne Pemelton (HER DAUGHTER) born Hidalgo Co, TX 1951 you will SEE that her (Yreva) maiden name was TESTON. Thanks for helping to get this information correct.
