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.

Please, do not use e-mails and public messages to request corrections, additions, links, and transfers. They will be ignored and/or deleted. With the new edit feature in place, just click 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 or send notification of dupes, please use the SAC.

Note: I am NOT transferring outside the four generation guidelines so please, don't ask. I'll be happy to add links and other info when provided.


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.

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.

Leona "Ann" York memorial 131666775
In the bio, 4th paragraph down, it's stated that she was preceded in death by her mother Lillian York. Please see obituary at the link below, to find the name of her mother reads McElroy.
