I have been researching my family history for many years and am fascinated with cemeteries. I love the old headstones. They were so unique.|
I started adding information to F.A.G. from obituaries my aunt had kept on people she knew. It progressed into trying to complete as many cemeteries in the area as I could.
If I have created a memorial for one of your family members; please let me know and I will transfer it to you. Although F.A.G. has set rules about transferring memorials, I don't adhere to those. If one of my memorials is a part of your family tree, I will transfer it. Family belongs with family. Unfortunately there are some small minded people who will not transfer a family member because they are not within the restrictive FAG guidelines.
Also, I don't mind my headstone pictures being used; but, I would appreciate being asked first and to be given credit for taking the picture. It is only common courtesy. I spend a lot of time and gas in documenting the rural cemeteries in this area and don't appreciate those who think I am petty because I expect to be given credit for the work I do.
With the new "Edit" function, I can't guarantee the accuracy of the information on my memorials anymore. It has it's good and bad points.

Hello Wanda Balcom is my Aunt. Her husband is my mom's brother. I can't say thank you enough. I saw in your profile this:
"If I have created a memorial for one of your family members; please let me know and I will transfer it to you. Although F.A.G. has set rules about transferring memorials, I don't adhere to those.

And immediately knew I liked you.
Would you mind transfer the memorial? Thank You in advance. I am going to try and link her to her parents.

|Jan||RE: Winchester Smith|
I'm related to the Morris's through my mother, Marjorie Morris Schmidt. Her dad was Douglas Alvin Morris. His father was Benjamin Franklin Morris (brother of Winchester Morris Duncan Smith). Their father was Edden Morris, whose father was Achilles Morris. Whose father was another Benjamin Morris. Whose father was William Morris.
There is an 1880 Census for Edden Morris living in Laramie City Wyoming that shows many of the children's names - among them Winchester and Benjamin.
Sorry about using your pictures and stories in my ancestry.com family tree. Didn't realize their were rules about using these pictures. I'm afraid I would be asking you every other day as I have used the pictures of grave sites quite liberally when I have no family pictures. I will stop using them.

|Sylvia||RE: Oscar Spraggins|
Linda, this is the article regarding Oscar Jackson Spraggins (I have printed out the caption that can be seen on the memorial photo) Oscar Jackson Spraggins was killed during WW I. This article gives an account of that incident. Though difficult to completely read it says:
"Bugler Oscar G.(?) Spraggins, son of W. N. and Katie Spraggins, of Pilot Point was born in Fammin County, Texas, November 12, 1898. He was educated in the public schools of Flat Creek, Cook County. When was was declared between the United States and Germany he entered the service September 18, 1917, and was ordered to Camp Travis, where he was assigned to Company B, 339th Infantry, Fifth Division, and here he trained for several months. On June 7, 1918 sailed overseas to France. He has been through all the campaigns of his company, in the trenches, from the St. Michael on thhrough the Mes___Argonne drive. While engaged in the battle between Rachenville and _____that form a triangle, and artillery on both sides pounding away, and the enemy machine guns very thick. Bugler Spraggins volunteered to carry some important messages for his Captain, and while performing his duty was hit in the chest by a machine gun bullet, from which he died two hours later, his death occurring on November 5, 1918. He was ....with all military honors possible under the circumstances...His death was that of a patriot and hero."

|Linda Culbertson||Achillis Morris & Minnie Morris|
Thanks for posting this headstone. In the area where you have listed their names and possible relatives you have Minnie as born in 1886 yet the headstone is listed as 1866. If you would correct that it would be appreciated. Achilles information is correct.

Added to his memorial page. Thanks so much, Linda!
|Norma Rae ||RE: Harvey and Georgia Waldrop|
Yes, I'd like to have Georgia's memorial. I loved her dearly. Thank you. Norma Waldrop Unger
|Norma Rae ||Harvey and Georgia Waldrop|
Yes, they were married. They are my grandparents on my dad's side. They were, however, divorced (I believe). At least I was told that Grandma Georgia told my dad Von to hitch up the wagon and they, with Grace, took off (after borrowing a little cash from the grocer). They ended up in OK, and Von's brother Guy went there too. So Harvey eventually ended up there as well. However, one of his kids, Ruth, told me he was a son of a bitch. Not only did he not like kids, he didn't like people. He had some woman living with him by the ''40s, she said. So he was not a widower from Georgia, as she didn't die until 1972. I have another photo of Harvey in his later years, but I LOVE this one. Who added it? I also have one of Georgia when young--so beautiful--and one of them with the 4 kids. Like most of the Scots-Irish, he was a bare knuckle boxer. This is about all I know, as of 2015. Just getting started, but this is all family knowledge told me.
