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.))

Hi Bonnie! Yes that definitely answered my question. I have an unbelieveable love of cemereties. The older the better. I am a widow. I could never get my husband of a thousand million years interested in genealogy. However all I had to do was mention to him that I had relatives in such and such cemetery and he would immediately want to know when we were going. He loved them more than I did. I would make a list, split it in half and when we got to the cemetery he would find all of his list long before I finished mine. I am from Big Sandy and always make the trip from Houston at least twice a year. I have very few relatives alive in Big Sandy now. So I just go out to Chilton and visit with every body there. Tebow really loved going to Chilton and visiting with me. He always told people, "You should see the little cemetery were all her people are buried!" He was cremated and when I die his ashes will go with me into the King lot there at Chilton. I miss many things about not having him with me. One of the things I miss most is going to the cemeteries with him! We had so much fun!

Thank you for reading this.

Take Care,

RE: Coleman transfers
Thank you so much. This is my uncle Lewis, and sad to say they had another child Steven Lee Coleman, who died at about age 2, while they lived in Willis-Montgomery County, Texas. Have not located his site, but I attended his funeral. I am going to cemetery with hopes of locating his site and adding his to my uncle & aunts. I will add his site and then a picture once I go to cemetery. Thank you for you help in what you do. Annette Stone-Kerr

Hallie King
Bonnie, I really do thank you for your consideration and help with little Hallie. For years and years none of my King family could figure out who she and her daddy William Lee King were. Neither my grandmother, my daddy nor my aunt as well as Lucy Dell Lowry Gorman, another collateral kin could help me solve the mystery.All they could remember was that there was a cousin Willie Joe King who moved to Houston. After many years of digging in Upshur, Wood counties here in Texas as well as Pike county, Alabama I finally put it all together. When the Kings came to Texas from Pike county, Alabama in 1852 all the sons came with the group except for two, Jasper Newton and William C. Jasper Newton King and his wife and son came out sometime between 1855 and 1860. The three of them along with my greatgrandfather John Washington King are on the 1860 census for Wood county. Some time before the 1870 census Jasper Newton and Susan Devane King died. On the 1870 Upshur county census John Washington King and William Lee King, his nephew were enumerated together. After the death of William Lee's parents John Washington King raised him on his own until his marriage to Amanda Jane Lowry King in 1871. When John Washington King died in 1879 William Lee King continued to live with my greatgrandmother King. He then got married had two children, Hallie Lee and William Joseph king and then died. So you I hope can understand how I always felt like they had been forgotten until I found who they belonged to and guess what they belonged to me!

So again thank you, G-d bless, and have a wonderful day.


Hope this makes sense!
