Bio Photo This site helps preserve our family histories and information that can fade with time from our cemeteries. I'm glad to be able to contribute and want to thank all of you who have contributed to this wonderful resource.
My husband deserves many thanks for driving me to cemeteries or stopping at ones we see along the road as we travel. He helps me watch where I step and for things that crawl. He has walked many of these cemeteries with me or patiently sat waiting for me.
My Great-Uncle Will walked the cemetery in Cherokee, Texas with me when I was in grade school and told me about some of the people buried there. I wish I had been old enough to realize how important that information was. He was from the time when the men in the community dug the grave for someone for free and it showed love, honor, and respect.
At that same time in my life my Grandmother told me not to step on the graves as a way to show respect. She was also an example of love and respect in her actions as I watched her clear the weeds from my Grandfather's grave by chopping them with a hoe.
If I've created a page for one of your family members or friends, I will respect your request and happily transfer the page to you. Please use the Edit tab on the page to request the transfer so all the information is available.

Thank you for adding a photo of my mother's headstone. I suspect that we are cousins due to your mention of Cherokee, and if the F stands for Frazier.

I live in New Mexico, and rarely get to TX so it is comforting to log in and "visit" my mother.

Thank you for alerting me to the fact that I had put the wrong photo on Woodrow Sr's memorial. I have removed it.

Billy Marvin Johnson
Hi Betty,
I am researching the Johnson name for a recent addition to my family. For Billy Marvin Johnson on this site Porter Cornelius is listed as his father, however looking at his birth and death records, his fathers name was William Marvin Johnson. I know that Porter Cornelius would have been his step father by looking at the 1930 and 1940 census. Any idea what happened to his biological father or know of anyone who might? His father would have been born about 1903 in Marlin Tx and was a rancher per Billy's birth cert. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you, Paula

Memorial# 49556603 Hi there, just wondering if you could remove the 2nd image of Laura's flowers on her grave. They have since been replaced. The site won't let my daughter Susan remove it, because the account was transferred to her with the image already there. Thank you very much, Cathey A. Cline

I just happened to stumble upon the photo of the graves of William Avery and Ruby Watkins Grice. these were my grandparents. it is the first time i have seen their actual graves. although i was at my grandmother's funeral, i was never able to go see it afterwards, living out of state. it is amazing to see this on here.

Wm Wesley Crabb
Thank you Betty for adding the Death Certificate to the memorial. I previously mentioned taking off the bio about Travis making correction to spelling of Crabb. I do believe it should stay. I also see that there is no way there could have been confusion about the date of death and state he was born. It seems people back then just did not know their own place of birth much less a relative knowing. There has always been confusion with he and his siblings about which Texas county they were born. I do believe this my relative as, with Travis D. Crabb's statement; plus, I recently found his other son Calvin, was living in Llano Cty from at least 1944 - 1948. Again, thank you so much.
