|Bio and Links|
I am a native Texan, born and reared in Northeast Texas. I have been researching my families for about thirty years, making me the family historian. |
I have spent weeks, days, and hours in many states researching the courthouses and walking the cemeteries looking for my family.
Just recently I began placing memorials to my family members on findagrave; a wonderful website. The majority of my postings are my family.
I try to acquire photographs of my relatives; this makes me feel as if I actually know them.
I am a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, the Daughters of the Republic of Texas and genealogy is my passion.
Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished marble stone
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood and bone
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so
I wonder if you lived and loved
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
And come to visit you
PLEASE DO NOT POST PHOTO'S OF DEATH CERTIFICATES ON THE MEMORIALS. I WILL BE GLAD TO ADD THE INFORMATION IN THE BIO.

You're very welcome. And thank you very much also.
I've been checking on a few connections since Findagrave added sibling links. Please add T.L. Adams's (87556744) parents: Ann (22597765) and Jeremiah (22597683). This will connect the whole family except for Frances Adams Sanders. I wonder where she could be buried?? Thanks for all your work on this family. Your cousin, Liz

Thanks so much for clearing up the name of Ada's father. Lynn has transferred the memorial to me and I will correct the info at Ada's memorial soon. No wonder I couldn't find Nancy as I was looking for a McGee, not for a Grimes which was her maiden name.
Thanks, Randy O'Guin, ranny 47208269

I'm writing about your memorial for David C. Gilliland who died Nov. 26, 1915, and is buried at Runge, Karnes County, Texas. It sounds like you might have a copy of his death certificate. Does it mention his parents' names? I can't find a copy of the death certificate on Ancestry.com. I think I may be distantly related to him. He might be the first cousin of my Great Great Grandmother, Sarah (Sawyers) Kennedy. Her mother was Elizabeth (Gilliland) Sawyers Willis. I have several old letters written by J. W. Gilliland, his son. Thank you for any help. Karin Heymer
