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.

RE: Wilhite
Thanks Nancy. I was trying to be careful to enter accurate information. Now that I know about the cemetery dates, I was able to go back and corrected all the others too.

I saw the death dates but I was not sure if it was 1900 or 1800. And since I don't live close enough to check the headstones I was afraid to add the wrong year. Do you happen to know which is correct? Do you know if they were married?

Hi Nancy,
Thank you for sending the obituary. I decided to go ahead and linked her with Robert and added the note about the possible names. Janet

RE: Carpenter and Brickey
Thanks for the info, Nancy! I am connected through John's mother Amy Compton Brickey (on my maternal grandfather's side). Amy is my 6th great grandmother.

RE: Mt View Cem
I'm not from the area but my grandmother was and I still have relatives living there. (And a few buried in this cemetery.) You kindly photographed and added Albert and Fannie Hill. Do you happen to know their son, Allen "Hook" Hill? He's a cousin.

Hi Nancy,

You have done a wonderful job of covering this cemetery. I can see that you put a lot of work into it. I ran across some cemetery records and have sent edits your way. Just wanted you to know where the information came from. Thank you for all the hard work you have done.

Brickey/Compton
Hi Nancy,
I visited Lebanon Baptist Cemetery in Ste. Genevieve County today to see the Brickey/Carpenter plot there as I am just recently tracing the Brickey branch in my maternal tree. Are they ancestors of yours? I'm always happy to find living relatives! :)

RE: Ralph and Mary Pruett
Glad I could help. There is a Ralph Jr. buried next the them. I would assume he is their son. Someone had placed a candle on the marker and it spilled wax all over it. It was very hard to read. Maybe this summer's heat will melt if off.

RE: John Patterson Memorial# 46199805
Thank you for all the information. Patterson is such a common name that it is difficult to track. I go on the belief that there is no harm in asking. You've given me another source if I can find a copy.

Thanks again for the information. Gerry

John Patterson Memorial# 46199805
Hi. You created this memorial. Just curious where you got the information and if you have any additional information.

My Grand Uncle was Jefferson Davis Patterson who is buried in the Aspermont Cemetery and was a rancher in Peacock Texas and he had a brother John that I know next to nothing about. Thought this might be him.

Thanks for any assistance you can give me. Gerry
