Bio and Links

Blessed are the great grandmothers, who hoarded newspaper clippings and old letters, for they tell the story of their time.

Blessed are all the grandfathers who filed every legal document, for this provides proof.

Blessed are grandmothers who preserve family Bibles and diaries, for this is our heritage.

Blessed are father who elect officials that answer letter of inquiry, for some, this is their only link to the past.

Blessed are mothers who relate family traditions and legends to the family, for one of her children will surely remember.

Blessed are the relatives who fill in family sheets with extra data, for them we owe the family history.

Blessed is any family whose members strive for the preservation of records, for theirs is a labour of love.

Blessed are the children who will never say, "Grandma, you have told that old story twice today."

RE: Re: Temperence Burks Evans
My apologies!
Just browsing and noticed the duplication.
As often many are not AWARE of the other memorial.
Again, I apologize.

Minerva Braswell Burks

BTW, I sent a message to Cathy-O, the owner of the page that you linked Minerva with to advise her of the error.

I believe Minerva's date of death (1884) is incorrect on her page. It looks like 1881 on her stone with W.P. Burks and he married Louise Ledbetter in 1882. Just an observation.

Juanita Peebles
I don't guess this is really important but Juanita Peebles Tisdale's first name was not Margaret but Mildred. The Peebles Family are my relatives and she had a younger sister named Margaret Elizabeth Peebles that also married a Tiadale.
