Blessed are the great grandmothers, who hoarded newspaper clippings and old letters, for they tell the story of their time.

Blessed are all the grandfathers who filed every legal document, for this provides proof.

Blessed are grandmothers who preserve family Bibles and diaries, for this is our heritage.

Blessed are father who elect officials that answer letter of inquiry, for some, this is their only link to the past.

Blessed are mothers who relate family traditions and legends to the family, for one of her children will surely remember.

Blessed are the relatives who fill in family sheets with extra data, for them we owe the family history.

Blessed is any family whose members strive for the preservation of records, for theirs is a labour of love.

Blessed are the children who will never say, "Grandma, you have told that old story twice today."

Hello Shirley,
I have met up with a few family members here on find a grave and I saw that you had added flowers to Elizabeth's memorial. She is my Great Grandfathers sister, Benjamin Franklin Green.
I would love to know if Elizabeth is related.
Thank you. Hope to hear from you soon.

I am impressed!! I just joined Find a grave a couple days ago and thought I could give a little info about some of my family and "Bingo" it took one day to add some info. I really didn't know what I was getting into or exactly how to do it, But I think I could add some info in the near future about some of the Head family since I have been looking at a lot at my relatives in various cemeteries in Ouachita and Jackson parish. Some info about me, I am the youngest son of Marshall Head and Ethel Head (77)(there at Luna) and I live in the Chicago, Ill. area. A lot of my relatives are buried there and my uncle Tom Rawls donated the land for the cemetery. I was just wondering who you were and if you care to contact me at I would appreciate it. I would say you are doing a marvelous job. Thanks.

Thank you for placing Britton Barker on find a grave.

My husband descends fron two of Britton's and Celia's children. My husband descends from both William N and Elizabeth A Barker. Because of the type of script used in documents back then Elizabeth Barker's husband's name is often misspelled. Elizabeth married Jesse Parker. She was Jesse Parker's second wife. His first wife was Sarah.....perhaps Wiley. Jesse Parker had seven children by both of his wives. William and Elizabeth are both buried in Walker Co., Texas. Yep, that makes my husband his own cousin. Ha ha

Hi Shirley,

Is there some reason that John's two children from his first marriage with Mary Adelle Taylor are not listed as children who survived him?
