Bio Photo My name is Karen West Sanchez.

I ask for your patience in making updates and corrections to memorials I have added. I am undergoing chemo treatments and do not get on the computer as often as I once did. Thank you.

Genealogy and cemetery surveying have been a passion of mine for many years. My interest in genealogy was inherited from my dear Aunt Lucy West who passed away 2/22/05 at the age of 100 years, 6 months and 3 weeks. I do this in honor of her memory.

Lucy Ella West

and in honor of my father

Wayne West

If I have prepared a memorial for your family member and you would like it transferred to you, please use the Suggest a Correction link located by clicking the Edit tab in the upper right hand corner of each memorial. In your message, please state your relationship to the deceased. I will usually transfer distant family members, friends and totally unrelated people if you have something to contribute which I have not done already. I will not transfer to organizations. Also, if you find any errors I have made, please use the Suggest a Correction link. I appreciate people helping me fix my errors. Also please send any additional information you have (including family links) and I will add it to the memorial. If you don't hear back from me within 2 weeks, please feel free to ask again.

Viola Arnett memorial #34297057
Hello Cookie (Karen);
I have been in correspondence with Angie Hetherington, who took the grave marker photo for
your memorial #34297057 for Viola Arnett.

Angie mentioned that you had original paperwork for this cemetery. From the photo, it looks like her birth date is shown as June 21, and you have listed her birth year as 1893. I cannot read anymore of the marker, because it is buried in the ground, but you have a death year of 1895 on her memorial. By any chance does your original paperwork mention a day or month of death also for Viola? I think the inscription on the marker says "daughter of A. W. and M. Arnett", and this would fit her parents, Albert W. and Maggie (Smith) Arnett.

Does your paperwork mention any other Arnetts, McClures or Smiths that might have been buried there besides Viola and Rosa Arnett? Any names or dates would be helpful in trying to confirm some family relationships and also break through some 'brick walls' in our genealogical research!

I have also submitted links for Viola's parents through the 'edit' feature. Rosa E. Arnett is also a relative, and the 'wife of W.S." refers to her husband, Will (William) Samuel Arnett. The W. A. Arnett you mention on her memorial is her son. I can give you dates from family research on both if you need the information.

Thanks again for all your time and effort, and for creating these family memorials! Wishing you healing and health as well.

Thank you again,
Lezlie Clemons (acybersleuth)

Cherry Tree / Chuliop
I wanted to let you know they finally merged Cherry Tree and Chulio. You will notice some activity as I am deleting some of mine and sending you the information I had via edits, so the information on both can be preserved. They apparently just merged the cemeteries and not the individuals.

Tonight my mother and two of my sisters having been playing around in my account. Up to this time I have not done much. In my software I had gone back as far as Lucy Willoughby Jones. We was thrilled to find information on her and her parents plus information on William Henry Jones and his parents. Thank you so much for posting this. My mother recognized her Aunt Gertie from one of the pictures that you posted. Mother was 90 on January 8 of this year and is the only living child left in her family. Thank you so much for this invaluable information to our family history. We will be praying for you “cousin Cookie”.

My name is Deborah Frederick Brooks
My mother is Mildred Brown Frederick
My grandmother was Lucy Melinda Jane Floyd Brown
My great grandmother was Sarah Elizabeth Jones Floyd
My great great grandmother was Lucinda Ann “Lucy” Willoughby Jones

Again thank you,
Deborah “Debby” Frederick Brooks

RE: Wayne West

My Turkey assignment was to Ankara in 66/67 and then Incirlik in 83/84. Wasn't assigned to Randolph but went there TDY to write the SKT promotion test for our career field. That was in 1980 IIRC. Was stationed at the School of Health Care Sciences at Sheppard in Tex from 74 to 78.

Your dad sounded like a tough guy. Hope he didn't suffer much.
