Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in the Wesley Chapel Community. My father, TommieJohnson is buried in the Wesley Chapel Cemetery. I still miss him. I would like to thank everyone who has left a flower on his memorial. He was a wonderful man. My greatgrandmother Anne Lightfoot,is buried in Widnes, England. She passed away not long after my Mother came to Texas.

I am also the ggggrandaughter of Captain Samuel Harrison Bowen, and also James Jennings. Who both served our Country when the Tea Party first sprang into action. I am a member of The Houston County Historical Commission located in the Courthouse Annex in Crockett.

I believe very strongly in cemetery preservation. Cemeteries in most cases are the only history of those that came before us. Like rare books in a library once it's lost it's lost forever.My only intention is to create a HISTORICAL RECORDING of those who are "Gone, but not Forgotten" before their tombstones are lost forever. This is copied from a fellow graver: "Get out and photograph memorials while they are still readable. This site is primarily for GRAVE photos not genealogy, preserve those memories that are quickly fading."

For those who wonder about such things, when the number of memorials managed is higher than the number of memorials created, this is due to a few members who decided to transfer their memorials to multiple Findagrave contributors .... . and I am honored to be one of the contributors trusted to look after some of those memorials.

How do I clean a headstone or grave marker?
Unless you are related to the interred on the headstone in question, DO NOT do anything to the headstone.

Please do not post death certificates on the memorials that I manage. I don't feel that it is in good taste and you will be asked to remove them.

FROM THE FAQS: If you want to add from an obituary: Newspapers represent a very good source of information as a public record. What we ask is that those who index and memorialize the deceased from newspapers and other 3rd party accounts do so with full respect of copyright, refrain from adding information about living people, and respond generously to the family of the deceased.

I am happy to share ANYTHING that I post. I have no crazy rules, My pictures are your pictures. Feel free to beg, borrow, steal with no intent to return. I take pictures of headstones out of kindness ... not for my ego or for the "numbers."

Be kind to one another because - One day we will all be, 'just a name' etched in stone. "Nothing is ended until it is Forgotten."

This is the day the Lord hath made. I will rejoice and be glad in it! (and not spend the whole day working on Findagrave!)

memorial # 23086721
Carol, Please remove the News Paper Obit from the for mentioned memorial that you placed, as I have asked in my bio not to place on any memorial that I have created or maintain. I would appreciate this very much.

RE: Musgrove
Thanks for the suggestion, Carol. I don't think Nowell Musgrove is part of our line. Our Musgraves came from England thru Tennessee. It seems that Nowell may be of French lineage, given the Monsieur tag. Very interesting find, though. Thanks again.

New Hope Cemetery
Hello hope you can help me with this. Is New Hope an African American Cemetery? I am researching my family history and Smotherman is one of my surnames. Hope you can help me with this request.

#48242664 McWilliam twins
Carol - There is a headstone in the Abraham Elliott Cemetery (Prairie Point, Lovelady, HCT) that has B Mc W carved on it.

could this be the headstone for the infant twins of William (Bill) Mc Williams.
If it is, I will post a photo of that headstone for the twins.
