|Lisa Reynolds||Ryan Barrett Reynolds grave marker|
Thank you for posting picture of Ryan's grave marker. Ryan was my first nephew. He was born in 1982, a full term baby boy who was much wanted and much loved, the son of my older brother, Richard. Ryan was born with many medical problems; premature lungs, heart on the wrong side, esophagus not attached to his stomach, no kidneys and no anus. He only survived 12 hours. My brother was able to hold him for a short time; however my sister-in-law was never allowed to hold him, which broke her heart. My cousin, Weldon, was the chief of police at the time in Pittsburg when all of this was going on and my mom, dad and I were out of state traveling and Weldon had APB's and everything out searching for us. We were traveling between Mt. Pleasant and Pittsburg on our way home when we saw Richard heading toward Mt. Pleasant and he saw us and stopped, turned around and told us the horrific news. So we returned from vacation to an emotional upheaval and devastating funeral.
Many years have passed since that fateful summer day but it still lives on in my memory...a day that I will never forget as it has been burned on the retina's of my eyes. My sister-in-law and brother have gone on to have three more boys now grown men with wives of their own and now starting families and they also have one daughter...named Rian.
To be able to see the grave marker of my nephew helps for me to remember the past but also allows me to appreciate how far we have come as a family. So I thank you for that. Without my family and the many friends we had and still have in the Pittsburg area (as I now live in Arkansas and have for the past 30 years) 1982 would have been even more of difficult to survive than it was then. I was only 15 at the time and I struggled with Ryan's death hard enough. Quite honestly, I don't know how my brother and his wife survived. It was ONLY by the grace of God.
Thank you again for your willingness to go out and photograph these grave markers for others. They really do make a difference.

I just wanted to thank you again for transferring Clayton's memorial to me a few years ago.

That's why teamwork works so well.

Just wanted to say thanks for all the pictures you posted of my relatives online. For many years we have looked for the graves of Archibald(1797-1872) and Martha(1842-1886) Fuller. I know Archibald died in Cass County but have found nothing on him there. If you ever run across these two please let me know.
|Barry||Irene Lucille Anthony|

|mary beth marchant||Clara Ruth Skaggs|
Your Find A Grave Memorial# 62407910
Darla-could you please correct the findagrave post regarding Clara Ruth Skaggs. Even though her tombstone is there without a death date, it's because her husband Roland Skaggs passed away. You can know put her death date as July 12, 2013 as she passed away last Friday in Abilene, Taylor County, Texas. She was my first cousin-maiden name Clara Ruth Antilley-daughter of Ray T. Antilley and Sarah Catherine Insall. Uncle Ray and Aunt Callie are also buried at Potosi. I do not want the memorial passed on to me but it does need to be corrected. In fact, her funeral will be Jul 21, 2013-I think they may be waiting for her grandchildren to get there as they are scattered out. Regards, Mary Beth Marchant

Darla, do you know of a way to add this Web page URL to the Lone Star cemetery, Titus county, Texas? It seems to have beneficial history of it.
