Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi,
I was born in Grapeland, Houston County, Texas, parents, Walter Mayo Yates & Ora D. Clark Yates. I'm married, we have five grown children. I guess you would say I am the family genealogist for our family since 2004. Find A grave is a wonderful website. Family history is very important to me.
I hope I add something that will be of interest to others. Our family names include:Yates/Owens/
Denson/Clark/Parker/Chaffin/Williams/Steadman/Overstreet and many more.

For "PHOTOS" that I have added to my memorials, if you copy them, I would like to receive the CREDIT for them - Thanks, Martha Yates Vandver

Eli Kennerly (Ken) Lively

Are you related to the Lively family? I am trying to find a family member who might know if this Mr. Lively ever did any oil paintings. I found a small landscape oil in a local antique store and it is signed by a Ken Lively. Just wondered if it might be the same person.

Thanks for any information you might have.

My great great aunt Nellie J. (Parker) Knight memorial 23389434.

I'm calling my mom to see if they knew she was a Parker.I know they thought alot of her and she helped Uncle Dol raise his children.

I might be kinfolks to her in more ways than one.

Jarrell/Smith Family
Hello just wondering if we might possibly be distant cousins? My GGGG-Grandparents were David and Mahaley A. (Abney) Jarrell. I see you are caretaker of descendants of theirs and closer descendants of Freeman Rush and Eleanor B (Jarrell) Smith. Eleanor was the older sister to my GGG-Grandmother Mary Agnes (Jarrell) Moore. Would love to hear from you! Thanks, Brenda

RE: Memorials are in Order
It is not necessary to transfer the memorials. We have a ton of Overstreets in our family in the central Texas area. My husband's mother was an Overstreet. She and her siblings grew up in Lone Grove, Texas. If you like, I will send you some links when I have them all set up. Thank you for all you do. My links are working perfectly this morning. Must have been a hiccup in cyberspace! LOL Linda
