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.

FAVORITE SAYINGS:
From one of the stones: "As you are now, so once was I, As I am now you soon shall be"

"A person's life was more than the dash between years...." That dash represents your entire life and we need to live it wisely.

From my mother: "Bad deeds and words will follow you all your life and come back to haunt you."

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!!!!

BY WORKING WITH FIND-A-GRAVE WE ARE LEAVING OUR OWN LEGACY FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS. IT IS TRULY A LABOR OF LOVE.


PHOTOS: PLEASE GIVE CREDIT FOR PHOTOS THAT ANYONE HERE ON FIND-A-GRAVE HAS SUBMITTED---IT IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO.

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.

Sallie, Sarah
Guess what, I was working on another part of the Family Tree and found a lady named Sarah who was also called "Sallie" on a census.

So may Sallie was an accepted nickname for Sarah?

As in Sarah Louis Ragsdale.

RE: You mentioned Sally Wright
I found a marriage certificate online for Van and Mrs. Sally Wright, in 1922 in Tombstone. I'm thinking she was married before. So far, I have nothing further on the Wrights or her maiden name.

She and Van are ID'd several times in my grandmother's photo album. Don't know when she died. Don't know if Sallie and Sarah are the same person.

I have photos of Van and SALLIE Wright Ragsdale.
Would you like me to post them to this memorial?

Van was my grandmother's uncle.

William Martin Wright
Nancy,
I am not much of a researcher. But I am interested in family history. Right now I am writing my Dad's background story for the Alpena, Arkansas Historical Society. I am to the point where my Grandfather, William M. Wright, known as Martin, moved his family[his wife, Hannah Pettie (Anderson)Wright, my Dad, Orville Andrew Wright, and my Aunt Jewel (Wright) (Mainard)Murphy
( her next to last job was as the Assistant Director of Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock)]to Arkansas. I looked up Grand Father's grave to make sure of the dates...and noticed that two of his brothers are not listed in the family information part. His brother Tom died out in Havasu City, Arizona. But I do not have his bio. information available right now. When Great Grand Father Levi moved his family to Lordsburg from Junction, Texas, another brother, James, and his wife, my Great Aunt Molly, stayed on the ranch back in Junction along the Llano River. That ranch is still in the family and I am in contact with the family genealogy person when time allows. Orville A Wright, Jr.

I noticed you mentioned a book in the Newton Sydney Bilberry bio. Was there a burial book for Oriana Cemetery?
