Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been into genealogy for some 50 years and have never lost interest in helping myself and others find their roots. I find it a huge mystery game with many surprising discoveries.

TRANSFER REQUESTS: Please request if you are really a relative and will do something constructive with the memorial. If you are just a close friend, etc., the same goes for you. I will never refuse a request for valid reasons.

CORRECTIONS: additions, & family links when asked but no promises if you just send me an email instead of using the edit link. Use the Edit tab at the top right of memorial, then the Suggest A Correction option. Now we have the auto edit request and permission ability so that makes it easier. You can upload your pictures directly to the memorials, but PLEASE take pride on what you enter. Photos should be carefully composed and submitted with the highest resolution that FAG will accept.

Missing Photograph of Headstone from Original Memorial
Why did the photograph of David's headstone disappear from photos when his Memorial was transferred to me on July 02, 2015? Thank you.....

Thank you for your request. I made the changes to his memorial adding the birth information and linking his parents. I also add flowers,

The burial lists only one Katherine Anderson, 25660565. Could this entry be a duplicate?

RE: William Barrett 876822825
I am so sorry it has been so long since you wrote, but we are in process of selling and looking for a home, so I have not had much free time!

I just spent hours looking at what you brought up about Nancy, and agree. I got this information on Ancestry, which is not always reliable! Can you please remove Nancy's father's link? I can't do it, as you are the manager of her memorial.

I will also contact Jeri Taylor, and if she is related, will transfer William Barrett, to her.

By the way, are you related to Nancy or David Barton?

No need to apologize as I don't ever think it's a waste of time to clarify records for folks. I sincerely hope the person who wants a photograph of his headstone is able to find it sometime. Thank you for straightening this out.

Clarence Jones
Hello! There is a photo request for a Clarence Jones in the Hayfork Cemetery. I have a copy of the cemetery records and there is no Clarence Jones listed. Are you sure he is in this cemetery? Do you have any idea in which part he might be if he is here? Thank you for any help you can give me.

RE: Burial: Unknown
Thank you! That worked. The only thing was that the choice of "unknown burial" was not available. I chose the closest option and explained further on the second category.
Thank you again for your prompt response.

Burial: Unknown
Hi. I have seen several memorials with "Burial: unknown" and today ran across yours for James Sidney Bonham, #63016943. I have looked, but haven't found, instructions for how to set up such a memorial. It would be a nice thing to for certain relatives when it's clear the burial hasn't been located and probably won't be located. Can you direct me to a tutorial or instruct me how it's done?

RE: Help: Tom C. Thompson
The 1920 Federal Census shows (note arrows):

Prior to that the 1900 Federal Census shows:

The 1930 and 1940 Federal Census reflects more of the same, with children added. I wont clutter this message unless you want them.

The 1910 Federal Census for Thomas C Thompson shows:
Name: Thomas C Thompson
Age in 1910: 35
Birth Year: abt 1875
Birthplace: Texas
Home in 1910: Canyon Ward 3, Randall, Texas
Race: White
Gender: Male
Relation to Head of House: Head
Marital Status: Married
Spouse's Name: Anna L Thompson
Father's Birthplace: Denmark
Mother's Birthplace: Denmark
Neighbors: View others on page
Household Members:
Name Age
Thomas C Thompson 35
Anna L Thompson 34
Clarence L Thompson 13 <---
Ora E Thompson 10
Lillian C Thompson 6
John W Leonard 78
Note that, While Clarence is shown, there is no Tom C Thompson.

That pretty much constitutes my case. Please let me know what you think. Again, I appreciate your consideration,
