Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born, raised, and educated in the great state of Texas.

I served in the U.S. Navy, worked for the Virginia Employment Commission in Portsmouth, Virginia, the Baltimore City Police Department in Maryland, and finally, The Methodist Hospital (now named Houston Methodist) in Houston. After 20 years at the hospital, I retired and moved back to my hometown.

Other than my own family members, I'm not related to any of those I enter on Find A Grave and I'm unable to provide any further information about my entries except what was in an obituary or what I've researched.


Please do not put Death Certificate photos on any of my memorials. I appreciate your research; however, the information on death certificates is not always accurate and, the COD doesn't need to be seen.

Please use the Edit tab which is at the top upper right side on each memorial, to correct names, dates, place of birth and/or death, add parents and/or spouses, and plot information.

To request transfers, send notification of dupes, or additional bio information, please, use the Suggest a Correction (SAC).

DO NOT use the public message (PM) for transfer requests as they will be ignored.


A big thanks to all who have visited and left flowers and notes for any of my entries, including my family members and my fur babies. Thanks also to those who've sponsored several of my entries. It is very much appreciated.

Great Job! Thanks for that. I added a pic, and have also added about 150 memorials to the Sound Side FWB church today; many are Brickhouse. Thanks again - Jackie

Elizabeth Brickhouse
I do apologize, that is your Elizabeth, not Victoria, Brickhouse I am referring to and would like to have transferred; I just set up a memorial for Richard at the FWB. Jackie

Hi Ruth,
I am photographing graves in the Columbia area, and have found big mix-ups when trying to add pics to find-a-grave. I'm trying to get it sorted out a bit, the issue is that there are two Baptist Churches, and at least four find-a-grave 'cemeteries' representing the two. Also, memorials from one listed are for the other, and etc. A mess! I would like to ask you to transfer some memorials from Soundside Missionary Baptist to Soundside FWB cemetery, if you don't mind. Just use the 'edit burial' button. If you will do that, I can add pictures to your memorials instead of adding a duplicate memorial. To start, Richard and Victoria Brickhouse need to be transferred as I have their pics from the FWB. I will be photographing the Missionary Baptist this week. (I hope!) Thanks so much, Jackie
