I love the discovery of information about people from my past, where they lived, children, parents. I love walking the cemeteries. What a peaceful place. Although I'm aware not everyone feels that way. Probably here, everyone understands what I mean.
I look forward to adding the information that I have and continuing to search for what I don't.
RE: James Read/Burnham Westgate Thanks for the offer to transfer findagrave.com records to me :) Although the Read and Tweedy families are direct relatives of my daughter's husband I'm not seeking a transfer of any records. My health wouldn't enable me to properly respond to enquiries in a timely manner AND you are doing such a wonderful job! We certainly DO appreciate your having spent so much time and effort creating so many memorials at findagrave's site. Best regards from across the pond :)
Elizabeth Hess Photo Request There is a Mrs. Philip R Hess, B. A. (Rebecca "Betsey") Hess on row 20, plot 13 in Purves Live Oak Cemetery. Would she be the same as Elizabeth? If so I have a pic of the stone I can upload. It have very little detail remaining on it.
Una Lee Billingsley I completed your photo request for Una Lee Billingsley. She is buried with Jesse Peyton Billingsley and next to an infant, also named Jesse Peyton Billingsley. There were no memorials for either Jesse Peyton, so I created them and transferred them to you. When I was trying to obtain information to flesh out the Jesse Peyton, the elder, memorial, I found that he married Martha Evealine Essary on 16 May 1968, in Bandera, TX. I didn't connect Una Lee and either of the Jesse Peytons, because I am not sure of their relationships, although I would assume Una Lee and Jesse Peyton were married and he remarried after her death, possibly to her elder sister. I could not find any connection. I also assume the younger Jesse Peyton is their son, but again, I can not connect them. I'm sure you will have fun making the connection.
RE: Schuyler Havens Karisa, Thank you so much. I appreciate you sharing that information. Are you on Ancestry.com? If not I would be happy to share through invitation onto my daughters Ancestry Tree to save whatever information I may have that would be of interest to you. I looked at Schuyler's tree and I have traced back an additional 6 great grandfathers of your daughter. William (Evans) Havens would be your daughters gr x 9 great grandfather who was born in 1676 in Caddington, Bedford, England.
Are you interested?
I haven't completed confirming all the hints from Schuyler to William but if you are interested, perhaps we could help each other.
