|Bio and Links|
I was born and raised in the oil fields of the Texas Panhandle, and since we did not live near either my father's or mother's family, I grew up thinking we had a very small family. After I retired, I started tracing my father's family, which, except for his immediate family, I knew very little about. I thought this would be a simple project, however, it turned into a huge project that both my husband and I love pursuing, and it keeps growing.
As we travel, we stop at any cemetery we are near (and sometimes not so near) where we know there are family members and photograph their graves and those of others who might be related (or not). All of these are added to Find A Grave to share with others.
Please feel free to use the photos I have posted on any Find A Grave memorial, BUT please give credit to my husband by showing "photo by Bill Lewis". We take them to share with others but ask that you be courteous about their use.
If you would like a memorial transferred, please ask, and if you are more closely related or it is someone that is not our family, I will be happy to transfer it.
Please DO NOT add death certificates to the memorials I have created. This is not the place for death certificates - it is a place to honor the lives of those who have gone before us.
Also, please DO NOT add obituaries, family history, or documents in the photo section. E-mail them to me and I will add them to the bio section.

You bet - happy to help out. Gordon
|Tammy Rupp||RE: Stephen Walter Liles|
You are most welcome!
|Gordon Edwards||RE: Mary Ruth Collette|
You bet - happy to do so. Unfortunately, many graves at Oak Hill are unmarked. Many (20 or so) years ago, the cemetery was in horrible shape. It was sold to a private individual, who cleaned it up, and is now maintained by his son. Oak Hill was formed around 1870, when Johnson City became an official "city" - lots of history there, including Henry Johnson. Although technically still active, limited burials occur there anymore, as Monte Vista has become "the" place to be buried in Johnson City.

|Kathleen||Re. Sarah (Vandy)|
Thank You so much for transferring Sarah, my Great Grand Aunt to me. I am still working on Family, but, I finally feel like she's home. I Love your profile, as I too was not raised near much Family, so I thought mine was small also.
It's such a pleasure to meet you! I was raised to share, so if Vandy feels near and dear to your heart also, please don't hesitate to let me know.
Such A Honor to meet you and I truly hope we stay in touch. Thank You and Huge Hugs!!
