Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please do not place Death Certificates on memorials I have created. I find it distasteful and disrespectful to the family.

Most of the people I have entered into Find A Grave are not my relatives nor did I know them. If you would like any of the memorials I have created let me know and I'll probably transfer them to you if they aren't my relatives.

Hi, Bruce - we're certainly in agreement. The crazy thing is that I can get contributors I don't know, who live nowhere near here to transfer to me more easily than local people. My family has been here since the 1800's and my father was a history buff who knew all the local lore and had a great memory for it. I was his little buddy and interested as well. I have a lot to offer on very, very many of the local people --whereas these contributors are voraciously gobbling up the memorials, will NOT accept any stories or info I have on the people I've known and/or heard about all my life. They won't transfer my Mothers own sisters to me and I have so very much to add, interesting stories to offer and no one cares or is interested. A lot is already gone and with people like me who have info not being allowed to give it, all will soon be gone. They create what I call sterile memorials!!

Like you said, I could go on and on but it's pretty much all to no avail. The lives of these people were important --were worth more than just being a statistic and data in print. The legend and lore of my small community and the many things I know about Waco people and their history, the interesting tidbits that I can tell are going to be lost, and families and interested people are just left without the knowledge and stories they hunger for. You DO realize there are many, many things I don't dare put in print --some of the fun stuff that you can only pass down verbally. ;-) But I DO keep trying and add what I can when the opportunity comes. So many want quantity not quality as the cliche goes. Keep the faith ! Nancy

Thanks, Bruce - that's very nice of you to say so. It was really a special experience knowing her and I feel fortunate to have been friends with them in spite of the age difference. But they were sort of forever young. I'm going to write something for Libba (Elizabeth) as well and talk about their father who was very special. I really appreciate the transfers because I do have something to offer on them that otherwise might never have been shared. Happy Trails, Nancy

You sent an edit to link her to parents: George Welch and Connie Stillwell.
The Social Security applications and claims state that her parents were George Welch and Alzana Fitzgerald ???

Adding Information to a Post
Is it possible to add informaiton related to a deceased post on Find A Grave that would give the names of the deceased children? If so, I have information I can give for one of the postings for Earl E. Fayle that was posted by Bruce Hicks.

Samuel Reed - Lucas - Sarah - Ora - Helen -(one more) - me

When my grandma passed, I bought everything that I could at the estate sale. I have lots of old family pictures, and I believe one of them is Emerson. In addition, I managed to save the Reed family bible, and Emerson is specifically mentioned in the notes. I'm going to Root cemetery in a few days to get some pictures.

I am posting a generic email to contact me at since I'm not sure if all these messages are public.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Are these the same Levi Hicks?

It's hard to believe that's it's a coincidence that the birth and death records are the same.
