Bio and Links
Bio Photo Houston and Walker County, Texas plus others.

Being able to help others find their roots and connect to their families is a passion of mine.
I have been researching for about 30 years or so and enjoy it very much. I have always enjoyed mystery books, movies and researching is one of those great mysteries to me.

I have worked hard finding and posting photos and information on here *BUT* I am not one to "count memorials,keep score and not want to transfer."

If there is a memorial that I have put in, I will transfer to family unless it is my line. Just send me a message to that affect.

I currently have a database of over 8,100 people(in the Antioch Cemetery located in Houston County,Lovelady,Tx)including their relatives and extended families buried elsewhere.

RE: Gimons at Antioch

Would you please check your database and compare that to the information on the following two memorials?

June Gimon mem # 9006975 setup by Joel Farringer, and

Inez Gimon mem # 50633358 setup by Marty.

Both memorials have the same DOB, DOD, and a photo of a headstone for Inez. Do you know if this is one and the same person? Twins, perhaps? I noticed the duplicate photo and the questions followed.

Thanks so much!

RE: Find a grave #43379025 Lucy Barrs
Good Afternoon Peggy, I do agree with your point that Lucy was born after Carries death. Something is not right here. I am not sure why this data is the way it is. I will do some checking to see if I can figure this one out. I will leave them connected during my research. If I don't find anything I will unconnect them. Thanks....

James Quay Snell Sr
Hi Peggy,
I am a Snell family member and a Findagrave volunteer. Most of the information I have on this family is from Quay's granddaughter, Ella Lois Allen. She gave me March 31, 1856 as his date of birth, and just 1938, with no month or day as the death. His gravestone in Evergreen Cemetery in Lovelady Texas only says: "1856-1938". His first name was definitely "James" not "John". He is named after his father James Pringle Snell. Where did you get the dates? I would love to have the full death date.

Regards, Elizabeth Clibourn Wycoff (Volunteer #47485440)

Infant Murdock
Peggy, thanks for the info of
Death Certificate Houston Co., Tx Parents John Ellis and Millie Murdock. Parents lived in Grapeland, Tx.n,

I found the grave of the mother,# 14524111, Willie Dunnam Murdock married to Rev. John Ellis Murdock.
but can't find a death record of John Ellis Murdock, unless he is still living he would be about 99 years old.
They are both in my family tree, her name is Willie instead of Millie.

Thanks a lot,
Martha Vandver

Memorials for King/Ezell families
Thank you so much, Peggy, for posting the memorials for the Adam M. King/Ezell family members. I recently learned of my relationship to them through & a DNA test. My grandmother was Mary Susan King, daughter of Adam M. & Ellen Minerva Ezell/King, & sister of Eva Etta, Thomas, & Daniel Whitney. You obviously have a lot of information about this family so I suppose you are a relative. If you have any photos which you could share, I'd appreciate it very much. I was thrilled to find the memorial with photos of Adam & info about his Civil War service as well as those of Eva Etta & Ben. I have no photos of this family branch.

Mary Susan was first married to a Charles C. Malone with whom she had 5 children. They were divorced about 1901 & she married John William Smith in 1904. She & John had 4 children, including my father, Virgil George, Vernon, Bonnie Nell & Roberta Elizabeth.

I'm working my way back to the Ezells right now & find they're an interesting family. I hope to hear from you soon.

Thank you again

RE: Gospero Sweet
"I just found Lewis Kaigler Sweet in the april 11,1930 census in Suffolk, Ma. He is shown as a physician at a Childrens Hospital in Boston, Ma."

He graduated from Harvard in 1929 and did his internship at Children's Hospital. I would be interested in seeing the census data and talking with you (or e-mail) about family history but I am loath to openly publish address or phone. There seems to be no way to delete these public messages, so I'm not sure how we go about getting together privately. ??

RE: Gospero Sweet
"Is your dad Lewis Kaigler Sweet, his father Benjamin Gospero Sweet, his father Benjamin Gospero Sweet, Sr, his father James Lewis Sweet, Sr, his father Gospero Sweet 1774-1856.?"

Yup, that's the line. JRS
