Bio and Links
Hi, I AM 63 RETIRED,AND AN AVID GENEALOGIST. FAMILY HISTORY IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME,AND IF BY TAKING PICTURES,I CAN IN SOME WAY SAVE A LITTLE PART OF PEOPLE'S HISTORY,THEN I FEEL LIKE I'VE ACCOMPLISHED SOMETHING. I LIVE IN ODESSA,TEXAS,
AND WILL GLADLY CHECK OUT CEMETERIES WITHIN A 200 MILE RADIUS, AND FARTHER IF I CAN. IF I HAVE MADE A MISTAKE OR IF I LIST SOMEONE THAT YOU WANT TRANSFERRED ,LET ME KNOW.
FEEL FREE TO USE MY PHOTO'S;JUST PLEASE GIVE ME CREDIT FOR TAKING THEM OR OWNING THEM.-- I have the only photo of one of my great grandmother's on here. Someone added it to their family tree on Ancestry.com with no mention of where they got it,or what family link it came from. Now it's being added from one tree to another,without anyone being aware of our link into that family.I don't think that is right.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
If anyone comes across "ANY" family of theirs I've listed and you would like to manage their memorial's,just let me know.I don't do this to build up numbers,but to try and save as much family history on these stones as I can.It doesn't matter to me how close or how far apart the family link may be.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I read a tip the other day from contributor" Lady In Black" ,that I intend to start following. Since I add a lot of photos this would indeed make it easier to keep track of ones I need to look for again.

{ When adding a tombstone photo if it is one of the funeral home markers enter it as 'other' which will make it possible to know that person still needs a 'tombstone' photo added.)
-----------------
Don't want to ruffle any feathers,but I would like to ask that when you are sending me death locations or other info, & if you are only going by the SSDI, please do further research before doing so. A lot of people are taking what the SSDI has listed as proof positive that what it has is the place they died.That's not always so.If you click on the SSDI link it states that the location listed is the last place of residence .I've had people send me death location on the new edit tab or other info,I'll add it,then have someone else get upset that I'm listing incorrect info.

RE: John Wright Cook & Lena Kayser Cook
Just checking as I saw you had contributed a picture of the headstone. Maybe someone else knows of the family and will reply.

Thanks, Bill

John Wright Cook 1865-1961
Looking for descendants of John Wright Cook. Married to Lena Kayser b.1885 - d.1953. I purchased a 1944 painting he did of Wink Texas, at a local garage sale. Would like to know if his descendants are interested in getting a piece of their family history back.

Need Name correction
Hi Ladonna, # 164084871 Name is listed as Truman L. Holman. It should be Thomas L Holman. Thanks in advance for the correction. Thanks also for the work that you do on Find A Grave.

James Whitmire
LaDonna, for some reason, my Find A Grave site will not let me go to James Whitmire's page to correct the spelling. It keeps telling me the page does not exist. Don't know what to do. Tell me where he is and maybe I can get to him that way.

RE: Virginia Vest
We all do it. Like I said headstones can be very deceiving. I believe she might have died in childbirth and the baby son is buried with her.

George Thomas Adams Transfer
LaDonna, I am very late with this reply to you. I just wanted to thank you for all the work you did on my dad, and helping me transfer him to Clifton Memorial Park, Clifton, TX cemetery. I know you have done a tremendous amount of work in Odessa, and since I have been doing the same here on a much smaller scale, I know how much time and work it takes. There are numerous people who will benefit from your work.
Thank you,
Janet Burch
