Bio and Links
One day when I had young children still at home and I was visiting with my mother, I got out a piece of paper and began asking her who her family was. I got her mother's maiden name and her grandmother's maiden name. About the time my daughter got married and I got a computer I started my search for my roots. I had very little to go on but after 12 years of research I now have info. that goes back about 20 generations on her side. The family I knew the least about, I now know the most about.
I'm so glad I sat down with her and a piece of paper.

RE: Hello!
For some reason when I originally found the cemetery on the site, it only showed the two requests that I claimed. I think there are multiple listings for the same cemetery. I claimed and completed all of the requests this morning. Thank you for pointing it out.

RE: Letter!
Hi Donna,

That is the last address that I have. My aunt and I were not close and only exchanged Christmas cards. It is possible she moved. I do not have a phone number, but you may want to try telephone information.

I wish I could be more helpful.

Thanks for your information.

Charles worked for Eastern airlines. Perhaps that was the connection.

Thanks! Bonnie A. Powers Barnes is not buried at Staples cemetery. In fact we are still waiting for her headstone to be displayed.
She and her husband are buried in Austin Memorial Cemetery.

Hi Donna,
Thank you so much for the information about the spelling of Dickson Paris. Who knew?
