Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am the eldest child, eldest grandchild, I was fortunate to have parents and grandparents healthy, alive and keen of memory to tell the family history throughout my youth and early adult life. I was born in Fort Worth, Texas, in the early 1940's, raised in Lake County, Illinois, brought up my family in suburban Cook County, Illinois, and now I am retired on the island of Puerto Rico 00773. I spend many hours in researching the family genealogy and putting the family stories together. My families have "daughtered" out in each of the past 5 generations so historical burial cemetery records and photos of headstones have provided marvelous additional information in giving my historical grandmothers a maiden name and aunts a married name. I like to document old cemeteries in Puerto Rico and in states I visit, giving me a lot of memorials that I have no relation to. So feel free to ask me to transfer any of those memorials to you.

A Native American Prayer
I give you this one thought to keep -
I am with you still - I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the sweet uplifting rush,
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone -
I am with you still in each new dawn.

RE: William Henry Shivers
Patti Jo, you are so welcome. It was my pleasure. With the cool weather, it has made it easier to locate headstones. I found Dona and Willie's as well. There is one more listed but it must be covered up by the grass. I plan to go to Oakland next week so I will try to unearthen it. Have a great evening.

Walter McMullen
I've entered the info that you sent.

You mentioned Jefferson in your note. I did not enter Jefferson's memorial, nor did I link it to Walter's memorial. If there is a correction needed, please do send it to the contributor of Jefferson's entry.

Hi Patti Jo,
I appreciate all of the work you have done in Antigua and elsewhere! I walked the cemetery at St. John's Cathedral this past summer while on an unrelated assignment with the government of Antigua. I am now in the process of adding to your fine work in that beautiful cemetery.

Kind Regards,
Scooter T

Carlista Isabelle Jones
I have transferred Carlista's memorial to you. I agree that the info from the census regarding her being a braile translator is very interesting and thought you might like to add that yourself.

I put your suggestion on as his BIO. Is that what you wanted me to do?

Harry J. Watson's stone
Hi Patti,

I took another photo of this stone after brushing off some of the yellow 'stuff'. You can now read a little more, but still not perfect.

RE: Lee Bowman
I did not mean to delete it. He's at Beals, I am sure. We (our survey team) have done a lot of research on these old burial grounds. I am going to contact you via a PM with more info. Gordon
