Bio and Links
Bio Photo I will be glad to add any information or make corrections to any memorials that I have created or manage. Improving the accuracy of information available will reduce the chances of being led down the wrong path. I am always willing to transfer management of any memorial to appropriate relatives or receive transfers for any of my relative's memorials.

After I post a photo on a memorial, I generally delete the photo unless it is a relative in my family tree.

When I take pictures or fulfill photo requests, I always take a photos of some other random markers. If the photos are not present on Findagrave, or the memorials do not exist, then I add them. This is a great way to help the knowledge base grow. I have not been to a cemetery where I did not find photos or memorials to add. This technique also helps to find add relationships and correct errors in spelling of names, dates, etc.

Any photos I take or add to memorials may be used for non-profit or non-commercial genealogy purposes. Please credit the photos to "Native Texan" via I would appreciate being notified when that occurs. Thank you for this courtesy.

Hi -
You sent me an edit for Estel Wilhite to link his father as Howard F. White, who was born only 5 years prior to Estel. Are you sure you want this linked?

Charles Nathaniel Minnix and Catherine McCarder Minnix
Hello Native Texan,

Without actual visual proof, like on a gravestone, I am going to decline your name spelling change for Charles and Catherine Minnix. A gravestone spelling and even other written spelling in actual documents isn't perfect proof, but better than no proof.

Most of these Minnix people were my ancestors and I have found children in the same family used both spellings. I have always gone by the spelling on the gravestone. If you can produce gravestone pictures for Charles and Catherine Minnix, I will be happy to make the change at that time.

I will be happy to make a note in their bios of the alternate spelling.

Thank you for all you do on

Feel free to email me with any Minnix information.

Keep diggin'

I've adjusted the d.o.d. for her. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. There are typos in the former contributors work. I appreciate being given notice on them so that I can fix them. She worked hard on her memorials but did not have the luxury of so much online data as we do now.

It is the other entry for this name that is the duplication ... it should be deleted.
