Bio and Links
Bio Photo PHOTOS: Any photo I have posted on Find-a-Grave is intended to be used...please consider this your permission to copy and/or post any of my photos.

When I fulfill a photo request, I do not simply take a photo of the request only. I research the surname (and often connected surnames) within that particular cemetery and photograph them all when I go. And I will never, ever take just one photo within a lot. If the lot has more than one grave, they ALL get photographed since they will all be connected in some way. This allows a person to see photos of their entire family units, plus allows me to edit and link them all together when adding the photos.

DUPLICATES: I try my best to do a thorough check before entering any memorials. I will never intentionally create a duplicate, although sometimes it just happens with the delay in the Find-a-Grave system at times. Even if my memorial was entered first, I will usually delete IF the other memorial is complete.

My interest is not in numbers but in the precious souls who walked among us on this earth. However, I would appreciate your using "the Golden Rule" when asking me to delete a memorial. Most people already do and don't have to be reminded. Just want you to know that I will never intentionally be rude to anyone.

CORRECTIONS: I'll be happy to make corrections on any of my entries if needed, or I will gladly transfer memorials to family members (at my discretion when it involves my kinfolks). I would appreciate your using the "Edit" function to request corrections.

ABOUT ME: I have lived in Sweetwater, Texas all but four years of my life. A genealogy nut, I love to help people find their family information through this volunteer work.

FIND-A-GRAVE: I am the Find-A-Grave coordinator for the Nolan County Cemeteries. The Sweetwater Cemetery is my favorite (my daughter, father & grandparents are buried there).

MY FAMILIES: (just to name a few)

Cardwell * Hammond * Turner * Elam * Fry * Douglass

Hughes * Thomas * Lee * Beard * Willingham * Folmar

Free * Wyly * Bates * Stewart * Powell

Always interested in hearing from anyone with any connections to my families.

MY CEMETERY TIES: I have strong family ties to the following cemeteries:

* Sweetwater (Nolan County, TX)
* Old Bethel (Anderson County, TX)
* Frankston City (Anderson County, TX)
* Roby (Fisher County, TX)
* Rose Hill (Taylor County, TX)

By Thelma Greene Reagan

Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.

Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.

Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.

Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.

Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.

Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.

Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

Thanks, Janie! I found Ensor on a new document, so it's great that it's on there too.

RE: Bellar
Will have to check on that.
I am working on Bellar line, so didn't check
much further on Boyett, and yes I found it spelled several ways. Not unusual.

Thank you

I would like to thank you from my heart for the transfer of my grandmother. Was looking at your memorials and I find your work truly amazing. So much time, effort and hard work you do everyday. You should be thanked and I do thank you. The very best of wishes to you. David

Hi, Janie. I was wondering where you found the framed photo of Nancy Ann Upchurch Rogers, #54891669. I know you have over 12,000 photos, so that was probably a crazy question. But it looked like a personal photo of her, so I thought maybe you were related. She's my paternal great, great grandmother.

Thanks for all you do!

Sarah Rebecca Keith Shelley
I just came across your bio on Sarah , I am a granddaughter of LaVerne (Hollimon) McCauley I was just @ the Mesa Cemetery & completely forgot to see if Absoloms headstone was there ; I had just discussed this with my mother as a couple other " family stories " surfaced I hadn't heard before . I'm 75% sure he is buried there as the majority of both sides of my family are , Peter & Emily Jane (York) Shelley are I know for fact. I'll be back in that area in a couple months and let you know for sure

Thank You,
Judie Gallegos
