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

Hello again, I'm using the photos you posted of Uriah Francis "Buck" Casey and Sarah Ann Baggett Casey. I want to credit you but am not sure what name to use.

James Odell Brown
Thank you so much for transferring the maintenance of the memorial for James Odell Brown. We greatly appreciate all that you do!

I noticed that you have both the Parker and Clark family names in your family; my husband's family is also from Grapeland and their family tree includes both Parkers and Clark's. My husband's great-grand mother is Dolores Ann Parker Brown.

Thank you again for your help,

RE: TWO COUSINS-56807531
Today I went back to Parker to see if I could determine who this is. I still have no clue.

The marker reads: TWO COUSINS, ASLEEP

That is all there is on the marker, front and back. To the left there is Reason Beauchamp, to the right is Infant White.

This marker is on Row 12.

RE: TWO COUSINS-56807531
I have no idea. That marker is somewhere near the 8th row. I can see some dates, or what appears to be. Maybe I can get a better look at it the next time I am there.

The only thing I can positively read is "TWO COUSINS" at the top.

RE: Marriage to two Mary's
Thanks very much for the information. I felt it had to be two separate wives.

Thanks again for your feedback.
