Bio and Links
Just a guy that enjoys history and thinks that history and geneology are an important part of our lives. I was born and raised in Western Pennsylvania, and now I live outside of Houston, Texas. At home, I am trying to get as many local cemeteries listed as possible. I am currently focusing on "forgotten" and out of the way cemeteries in East Texas. I also travel quite a bit with my job, so in the evenings on the road, I visit local cemeteries and try to fulfill photo requests. I also travel back to Western PA frequently and try to get cemeteries there.

I try my best to try and find out as much as possible about each person using public records, obituaries, etc. However, I know that I will make mistakes. PLEASE let me know if there are any errors so that I can correct them.

Transfers: Please follow the FAG guidelines for transfers. If the person memorialized is not a direct relative - as defined by FAG - please do not ask for transfers.

The greatest thing about love is that no matter how many ways you divide it, it never gets smaller.

Hello. His great great great granddad Matthew Denny Bostick (I believe his was great x 3) was my great great great granddaddy Nathaniel Alexander Bostick's brother. We were great cousins! I actually still have a letter Rhnea sent to me years ago, discussing our family history, and I met him several years ago when he came to Tennessee. He was very nice, and I was saddened to hear of his passing. Nathaniel is on Find-A-Grave if you want to read about him, as well as are brothers Matthew Denny, Chesley Butler, Alfred, and Ann Bostick Poteete.

Elsie Grace Tarr Fox

I've been meaning to get in touch with you regarding the memorial page for Elsie Grace Tarr Fox (#40232927). I believe you may have linked her to the wrong Elma Tarr (her mother). The notes on her memorial page say she was the daughter of Joseph and Elma Tarr, but when you click on Elma's name it takes you to the headstone of Elma and her husband Sherman P Tarr. They are my great grandparents and I know for sure they didn't have a daughter named Elsie. I have a Tarr genealogy document and searched for Joseph Tarr but could not find a Joseph with Elsie and her other siblings named on the memorial page. I'll try to find Elsie's parents and will do some searching.
I'll get back to you if I find anything.

Thank-you so much for posting the picture of my cousin Don Lee. It is exactly as I remember him when I was a child growing up in Anderson County, Texas.
