Bio and Links
Bio Photo Just call me jaybee. I am a native and lifelong Texan, born in Howard County but a resident of Dallas County most of my life. I am a newcomer to this website and to the net in general. As I learn more about Find A Grave and better understand just what (or how much) information will be of benefit to the collective membership, I will expand my bio. Initially I will admit to being a mother, grandmother, gardener, sub-par cook, so-so painter and a dreamer who loves to write. I look forward to contributing to your mission. jaybee



On Thursday, September 10, 2009, PAULA MICHELLE TRIPLETT left this world to be with her heavenly family. I have created a memorial page for Paula and placed it in my "Exceptional Spirits" virtual cemetery because Paula's journey into this world honed and exposed the sterling character of her parents and all who know and love them. Please visit her memorial and offer tokens and words of comfort to the family.
A moving audio-visual tribute to Paula can be accessed by going to:

Please copy and paste this address into your web browser to visit Paula's tribute. If the slide show and "Paula's Song" do not begin automatically, click on her name and dates on the right side of the screen. While visiting, please view and sign her guestbook.

On behalf of Paula's parents, Darrell Triplett and Louann and David Ramey, I wish to thank you for your kindness.
Love and blessings,

re:William Rushing 1723-1781
You have a note on his memorial #48347757 CONSTRUCTION SITE

Am I to understand that the family cemetery is now a construction site? If so, do you know if the bodies were moved to another location? Or were they putting buildings right over Revolutionary War dead? William would be my
6th great-grandfather. Any information you might have to offer would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

WEEMS Family info/question
I see you have a "Vann D. Weems" born 1890 Texas listed as a son to WIlliam L. Weems and wife Sallie. Actually, his name is Vord Haily "Jack" Weems. He married into my family. I would like to know the source for the name Vann D. Weems you list as well as do you have any family information for him...I am assuming not, but asking anyway.

Vord Haily Weems was married to Winnie Fern Newman about 1919. Winnie was my grandmother's younger sister. Winnie and Vord had 5 children, only 2 of which lived to adulthood. Vord is found listed most often in Texas records as "Vord Haily" or "V. H."...however in one death certificate for their first child that was stillborn, he is listed as "Jack". I have some communication from a couple of his descendants that indicates that he went by Jack.

Vord and Winnie seem to have divorced sometime between 1930 and 1935. He and Winnie are on the 1930 census living in San Antonio, then Winnie is living with her 2nd husband Harry E. Olander in 1940 in California. This census indicates that she and Harry were living in Galveston, Texas on April 1, 1935.

The descendants I have been in touch with tell me that Vord apparently moved to Arizona and they do not know what happened to him after that. If this is true, I may have found him living near Flagstaff on the 1940 census...he is the right age and born in Texas and married to a lady from Oklahoma which all seems possible...but I am not sure it is him. He is listed as Jack Weems only and I can find nothing more about him by that name or by Vord. He seems to disappear from all records after the 1940 census.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hello Jaybee!

I am new to this. I noticed you created a grave memorial for my grandfather John Taylor. I have also noticed you have been doing your research like myself! I also found that the Wilcoxson (Willcoxson, Wilcockson..ect.) ties into my tree as well.
I am trying to find more information on my grandfather. Unfortunately, John Taylor is such a common name it's hard to filter through everyone of them. Do you by chance have any information on his dad and mom? I haven't had any luck on

Thank you.

R. Herbert Cates
Found R. Herbert Cates by other Cates in the Liberty Hill Cemetery, but do not find him listed as a son of the Rev. Richard Francis Cates or either of his two wives. So can't link him to anyone. Can you?


John J. Christeson

PS. Do you want me to transfer the Cates I own to in this cemetery to you?
