Bio Photo NOTES EDITS
Requesting a transfer through the Edit feature insures that no mistakes are made. I manage too many memorials to research each one. If I find out later that an edit sent to me is not accurate, I may change it. I do not transfer to "Anonymous" nor do I do edits from them, without some explanation of the source of the information.

I love to see the memorials come alive with biographies and family history....and photos of our loved ones. I just LOVE it when I can help someone!!!
I have been researching some of my families since about 1978.


My grandmother went to cemeteries with me, and once said she would like the following to be on her stone: "WE LIVED TOGETHER, WE LOVED TOGETHER AND NOW WE REST TOGETHER". I Just fulfilled that request!!!!

PHOTOS: PLEASE GIVE CREDIT FOR MY PHOTOS THAT IS HERE ON FIND-A-GRAVE IT IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO. I TAKE PHOTOS TO SHARE----NOT TO KEEP AS MY OWN. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO USE THEM, PREFERABLY WITH CREDIT.

I recorded and submitted the ORIANA CEMETERY, near Peacock, Stonewall Co., Texas in about 1986, which can be found on the internet by doing a search. (It was possibly submitted to interment.net)
The Oriana Cemetery at findagrave is here.
FAVORITE SAYINGS:
"A person's life was more than the dash between years...." That dash represents your entire life and we need to live it wisely.


​Why I research and why I work with Find-A-Grave:
THEY DESERVE TO BE REMEMBERED AND RECORDED!

The names and dates on the stones represent a life lived. These people aren't just names on a stone---they once lived, laughed, loved, were happy and sad, shed real tears, endured pain.
They sometimes endured pain to the end, and they deserve to be remembered == not as names and dates on a stone, but as REAL, LIVE, LOVED people who had a story to tell! Some of them raised children, and some didn't. Some died way too young or as children. There is a story between those dates that you see on the stones. That is why I will research them and record it as best as I can, and SHARE IT HERE ONLINE WHEN I CAN.

​“Every time you feel the warm air on your skin, know that I am kissing you gently and whispering that I love you.”

RE: Elsie Cole
You're welcome. Maybe no stone yet, or perhaps the records have the wrong section listed. You could try the Portage Township Office (which runs the cemetery) 906-482-4310. Perhaps they have more up-to-date information, and could tell you if there is a stone in place.

RE: William Fountain Hamby Jr.
I think you might remember the problem with the contributor who established William Hamby, Jr.'s memorial in 2008. He refused to make changes and was impossible to contact (these were the days before Ancestry bought findagrave and the days before the "edit" key that is now featured on memorials. I emailed findagrave administration several times about the contributor and his plan to sell books by using findagrave information.

The same contributor who contacted you about the duplicate also contacted me yesterday about another duplicate memorial that I created. I wrote him and told him of the situation. After giving it much thought, I have decided to ignore him. He can use the "edit" key as well as I to alert findagrave to the situation.

Was she a photo request of is she any relation to you. I believe she is the mother to Cora Saphronia Hough who is also buried at this cemetery. I'm researching this family because I have DNA connections with them. Im trying to connect with family members. Thanks for any information.

General Hamby
Are you sure that he is buried in Sonora and not Menard. I know his fathers obit says that all 3 of his sons are buried in Sonora but it also says he moved to Sonora in 1922 and General died in 1918.
The story about General passing is in the Menard Messenger Oct 24, 1918 and it says his funeral will be at his parents home but they came to Sonora Aug. 1922.
Anyway that may be why I cant find him in Sonora Cemetery.

William Thomas Cardell
I noticed William Thomas Cardell is your grandpa. Would you happen to have more information on him as he is my Great Grandfather via Dock Shelton Cardell to Lloyd Shelton Cardell to me Gary Allen Cardell. He is as far as I've been able to fine in my family history on my dad's side.

Years ago, I heard mention of a family member of Dock's having worked on the family tree. Out of curiosity could it have been you?

RE: Margaret Alice Brickey
Thank you Nancy. Are you related to the Brickey/Pate families? I wondered whether we were cousins or if instead you are genealogy researcher.

RE: Margaret Alice Brickey
Good question. My mom is France's Brickey Lambdin. Her dad was Luther O. Brickey,. Her grandfather was James Nathaniel Brickey who was married to my mom's grandmother, Ida Pate Brickey. Both James and Ida are buried in the Hutchinson Eastside cemetery. We have visited their graves and the grave of Margaret Alice Brickey.

James Brickey's parents were Robert Brickey and Margaret Alice Pate Brickey. I have a copy of their marriage bond. And I have a copy of James' death certificate which lists both of his parents, as Robert and Margaret Pate Brickey.
Mom told me that Margaret, her great grandmother, was buried in the same cemetery as her grandpa James and grandmother, Ida. The years on the grave marker match.
Right now I don't any other document about Margaret Alice Brickey, but I'll ask mom.
