John Jeffers FAG #50243636
Hi Desertthorn, I'm requesting a transfer of administration for family member John Jeffers (#50243636). I'd like to add links to the rest of his family, post some photos and a short bio. I'm happy to do that via the edit function if you'd prefer, but if you're willing to transfer, that might be less work for you. If you're a family member and want to keep the memorial... then "Howdy cousin!" All the best! I am Essef #47609166.

He was born in 1846, so would have been plenty old enough to enlist in 1862 or 1863...

Hello Desertthorn

I did use the edit tab.
I also sent you the Texas Death info as proof,
which was too much information for the edit tab.
That's why it went as an email

RE: Herminio A. Martinez
THANK YOU! I so appreciate you taking the photo of Herminio Martinez' stone. It backs up the documentation I have with his dates. Thanks again!

I was finally able snap a photo of William Nave's headstone. It was set in place sometime this last week.

RE: Cruz Cabello
Here's the dilemma. There is more than one Cruz Cabello in Laredo, Texas of approximately the same age. The Cruz Cabello, family member, who I am researching, was born and died in Laredo, Texas. Additionally, he was born 6 Jan 1927 and died 16 Dec 1985 (birth certificate/Texas death index/SS death index ). He is actually Cruz, Jr. and his father (Cruz) was (1892-1977). So if this Cruz Cabello died in 1954, then I have the "wrong" Cruz Cabello. (No disrespect intended). The Cruz Cabello (1924-1954) was born in Mexico and his father was Mauro Cabello. This is why the dates were very important.

I appreciate your assistance.

Cruz Cabello
Thank you for the picture of Cruz Cabello's headstone. I wish that it had had his birth/date dates on it, that is a part of a puzzle that I am working on. But I do appreciate your work and your time.

Thank you for letting me know about the duplicate memorial. I've added the stone photo from mine to the original and have requested Find A Grave admins to delete mine. As I was not the original creator of it, I cannot delete without their help. Thanks again.

Thanks for the transfers - Sorry I didn't thank you earlier; but, I had a water pipe break and didn't know it until about an hour or so, as I thought I was watering my backyard as I visited my neighbor.
