Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a native Houstonian. But, am blessed to live in Brenham,Tx, where the bluebonnets and Bluebell Ice Cream grow. I am the mother of 2 beautiful children and blessed with 3 wonderful grandchildren.

My ancestry lines are:
Driver/Bowman/Brant,Klei Rolan/Wallen/Jones/Pullen/Lee/Decker,

I have created memorials for my family and a few others. I find it very gratifying to be able to create a memorial. I have also created memorials for the Rock Shoals Cemetery in San Saba, TX.
If I have created a memorial for your relative, please contact me and I will be happy to transfer it to you, unless of course they are my direct descendants.
You are more than welcome to use any of the photos, I have posted to findagrave, for your own personal use, but not-for-profit family history projects. I ask, that you include a note stating that the photos were provided by Joyce Wyatt, via Find A Grave. Please let me know when you borrow one, I would like to know by whom and where they are being used. Thanks!

I'm related to the Mitchells. My g-grandmother was Margaret Lucretia Mitchell, married to William Henry Snell. Do you know anything at all about the Scrimptons?

The memorials have been transferred to your care. Thank you for answering my questions and for the willingness to give us a more complete glimpse into your grandparents' lives. I do not live there anymore so I am unable to get a photo for you. I have my Daddy's notes and my Granny's notes, as well as my own, from walking cemeteries for 60-70 yrs, all along the TN/ KY line where we lived. So the headstones may not even be readable now, if the cemetery has not grown over by now. I'm not sure who's notes these 2 graves were on (as I have a filing cabinet full of notes), but that is all I have. My Granny's favorite thing to do after Sunday dinner was to walk and record a new cemetery. Daddy and I picked up her love of these quiet resting places. One thought I do have is that Robertson County Archives may possible have a photo, as well as much more on this family. They are a great help and very kind folks there. Give them a call 615-382-6928.

Good luck in your research,

You asked for a transfer of this memorial, which is not within the F.A.G. guidelines but I would consider. Do you have more info to add to it or do you just want to claim it and leave it as it is. I ask because I get so many folks wanting the memorial and then they never add a photo or info to the bio section, or even link the memorial to other family members. If you can do any of this then I may transfer it. If you answer this message with the info you have about Mary, then also *please* remember you need to include your member number with any request for a transfer, as you did not with your last request.

Thank you,

Tried several photos. Letters on the marker would not show up well. Would you want photos emailed to you?
