For a Christmas present, I decided to give my daughters and niece a photo album of relatives for a keepsake. When I visited a family cemetery to take photos of markers, I felt surrounded by a lot of love. Everywhere I looked, there were babies who never grew to be an adult. There was my great grandfather, then a great-great grandfather, and the more I dug into the census and the more questions I asked, the more familiar these people became to me. A relative came up with a family tree, tracing our Warren family back to England. I found a great grandfather near my grandfather in a cemetery that the family had visited so many times but no one had ever noticed him. Everyone has been to visit him, now, paying the respects that were long overdue. Beside him, his wife, three sons and a daughter are buried. |
I enjoy going to different cemeteries in our area and putting families together. The babies who have no parents with them catch my attention. When I list them, I hope someone finds them and adds them to their family. If I list someone who isn't a family member, I check out the census and our local history books to see if I can find something out about them. My mother has been a tremendous help, as she can recall so many details about these people and the life they lived. My husband has been there with me, wading through stickers, mosquitoes and the Texas heat.
If I have made any mistakes, please let me know. If I have listed your family member, I will be glad to transfer them and let you add them to your listings. I know how important family is to family. Speaking of family, I am researching the Warren , Knapp, Peace, Boydstun, (Boydston), French, Barnett, Carroll and Brim families and families of Navarro Co., Texas.

Dear Karen, Thanks so much for putting the picture of my grandfather,Daniel Martin Boone on Find A Grave. I just found and joined this site and love it already. I have been doing our families geneology for several years now and am sure this is going to add to the experience. It took us several years to find his grave and put a headstone on it for our mother. She died at age 96 shortly after. Thanks again.
