Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy doing Genealogy, and always seaching for any and all relations of our families. I started doing this about 12-14 years ago and have enjoyed every minute of it, meeting new relatives, and visiting many of the cemeteries of East Texas. I joined Find a grave about 6 years ago, and it has been a tremendious help in my family searches.

My family lines are: Manchaca's, Barber's, Garners, Hightower's, Medlins, Bell's, Philpot, Roberts, Burge, Cummings and all the allied families to go with these.

There many memorials I have contributed, and I am not related to all of these families.

I would be more than happy to receive info from anyone on the memorials I have created, or maintain and make any corrections needed, or add data to them, or transfer the ownership, as long as it is not in my immediate family. And within FIND A GRAVE Guide Lines....

(("PLEASE DO NOT PUT DEATH CERTIFICATES or OBITS on any memorials I have "created", or maintain".))

((For transfers please Do NOT EMAIL ME!!!, Use the EDIT TAB on the top right corner of the memorial and 5th option to request all transfers, within FIND A GRAVE Guide Lines.)) IF YOU ARE NOT RELATED, PLEASE DO NOT ASK FOR A TRANSFER.

A. A. Davis Memorial
Thank you so much for your posting of A. A. Davis's memorial on Find a Grave. Since this grave is unmarked, there should be a correction. made on his birthdate. Ansolem A. Davis was born in 1829 not 1809. His death date is correct. Your work is greatly appreciated.

Death Certificates removed
Hi, Bonnie -

Sorry you were offended by the death certificates. They are just another important historical record that documents the place and date of burial, parentage, etc. You are the first person I've encountered that didn't appreciate the additional documentation. In any case, I respect and have honored your request. The two family members in question are my husband's cousins.

Best wishes,
Candyce

Levi Henderson Ashcraft
Thank you, indeed, Bonnie for the notice of "unmarked grave" of Levi Henderson Ashcraft. Am wondering if the grave of his wife, Elizabeth, is also unmarked? Could you post a photo of her marker, if she has one, and, if not; could you post a similar notice of "unmarked grave" for her?

I find it incredible, in view of his prominence in Texas history, that he does not have a marker. I believe he was born in Anson County, North Carolina.

Thanks, again.

Find A Grave #15734796. I see that you are managing his memorial. I am researching this family, and am wondering if you are perhaps related?

Cayce Lee and Virginia Barber
I just wanted to let you know that I entered Cayce and Virginia Barber into Find A Grave. They were dear friends of mine in Jackson, TN. That will get 6 of Cayce's siblings together according to the links.

Barber family
Hello, Bonnie!
I am also a Barber descendant and was so excited to find the names and more of John Philip Barber's, my great-grandfather, family. I am the granddaughter of his only child, James Philip Barber and Sue Derr Barber (Hughes), who were married after his death. So, we never knew anything about his family! What we were told, or what was passed down, was that he had gone to serve in the war, leaving his siblings with fields planted and told them that all they had to do was to reap the crops when they were ready. Which doesn't really make sense now, finding that he was the youngest boy, but as the story goes, he returned from his service and found the crops as he had left them but dead and nothing had been done by anyone to attend to the crops, for money, etc. So, he left the family behind, deciding that he was "done" with them. The only thing I knew, was that he had a twin sister named Fannie.
I will admit that I have discovered "stories" having been passed down from his wife, Clara Fulmer Barber, 's family about their own lives, that outlived all of those involved, so I am wondering, now, if any of that is true...
You may e-mail me or reply here. On a side note, The one thing that was definitely passed down from his side of the family was the mouth... I see it also in the photo of Ruby (? I'm thinking) and my grandfather had it and every child born, including my child and her generation, has had the same mouth or lips. Just kind of curious about that... If that is something that we could recognize in each other?
