Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am married and have 2 children.
I welcome anyone to contact me who can help with the Daywood side of my family tree. My great great grandparents came to America from Beirut, Lebanon in 1882. I have lots of members I haven't found links to connect them to my branches and would love to get help!!
Other names in my tree include but are not limited too: Ray, Taylor, Jennings, Burleson, Dunnahoo, Joseph, Kanetsky, Lockwood, Romines, and Talk.
I live in Central Texas and don't mind helping anyone who needs help.
I am enjoying adding names and photos and offerings here at findagrave!! ;-)

I am currently the historian for the newly formed Daughters of the Republic Chapter Catherine Cynthia Overton , of Manor, Texas.


Dear Ancestor:
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled 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, in 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.

Raye Smith
Leatherwoods in Jones Cemetery
First let me thank you for creating & adding to these memorials.
I just wanted to point out an error though (sorry!).
The tombstone you posted to Jess Franklin Leatherwood was his wife's tombstone, Alice Odell Lee Leatherwood. That's why it says "Mother".
Jess Franklin's tombstone is actually on Find A Grave Memorial# 70215562. The memorial is a duplicate of Find A Grave Memorial# 69989724. The latter memorial is the one with all of the connections though!
Sorry for butting in, but I hope it'll help other researchers when they're digging into this branch of the Leatherwood clan.
Happy hunting!

The Ancestor Poem
Donella, I had not seen that poem since I was a girl. My grandmother had a copy in her Bible, gave it to me, and sadly, I lost it during one of our many transfers from one Navy base to another.

Corrections? The lines, as I recall, were written as ... "Our veins contract", instead of "blood contracts", and "It is not too late", instead of "It is too late."

Thank you for refreshing a beautiful memory. God Bless, Scot Lady

Isiah Houston
I am looking into the surname of Houston in Bastrop County. I came across Isiah and information about him. I already put in a couple of changes but I think that I can help link in his wife. on the 1940 census for Isiah Houston in Bastrop County his wife is listed as LULU, born circa 1901. The also have 2 boys listed one Ross Houston born 1925,and James Houston born 1931. There are 2 Lulu's in Fairview Cemetery that I believe there should only be one. Isiah number is 54719091

Linking sites
My father Jacob Winslow Johnson is in Live Oak Cemetary with Moses Johnson and relatives. Is is possible to link to his parents Jacob W Johnson and Mary Ann Johnson in the Capitol Memorial or can they only link within the same Cemetary?

My name is J.C. Carter, son of Frank & Blanche (Johnson) Carter, daughter of Leonard son of Carl & Britta. These are my great-grandparents, do you know who's in the two unmarked graves beside them? Or how I can find out. The sexton is supposed to be in Elgin but I don't know how to contact them. Also I have a cousin, Joe Dan Johnson who is married to a Donnahoo(sp). Thanks
