|Bio and Links|
I was born in a two room tar-papered house that was built inside the edge of my grandads' cornfield in the 'Big Thicket' area of South-East Texas. At that time there were six kids plus Mom & Dad. Mom heated our two room home and cooked our meals on a pot-belly stove after washing our clothes with a scrub board until about 1950. In 1952 we moved to Louisiana. Mom & Dad had seven children, at the time of this entry five are living.|
I served in the US Army for three years (1965-1968,the last 20 months was in South East Asia without leave) and had a Joint MACTHAI assignment (all four services on the same compound).
I later completed a five year in-house apprenticeship under Ray Walker (Board Certified Questioned Document Examiner), which qualified me to become a "Questioned Document Investigator" and prove forgery in court to free the innocent and to hang the guilty. My mentor (Raymond "Ray" Walker) passed away in 1994 ending my five year apprenticeship, I am grateful to have had the only five year in-house apprenticeship that he had ever given.
I have been certified by Ray Walker, and formally qualified in handwritng analysis since 1990 and given a diploma. I earned my Questioned Document certification (Diploma) in 1991. The first case to testify in court as an expert was in Ft. Worth, Texas in Tarrant County in 1995 shortly after Ray Walker's death, which was a continuation of Ray Walker's case. One of my biggest cases was in Lea County, New Mexico.
I have been formally qualified as a Questioned Document Investigator since 1991. A most recent major case to testify was in 2009, was before the Louisiana State Supreme Court (which is the Louisiana State Bar Association, my client was an attorney) where my qualifications as a Questioned Document Investigator were accepted and entered into the record. I have never caused any of my clients to lose their case by making either a wrongful conclusion or a dishonest conclusion, and have never been disqualified in any Court as a professional Questioned Document Investigator.
I am not associated/affiliated with anyone that is related to Handwriting Services International now or in the past.
I was introduced to findagrave.com by Carolyn Byrum (from New Mexico) about four years ago so I could begin a search for the family I never knew. Please visit the Virtual Family links and see a very wide family history....
It's a pity when a blood relative has to steal my professional identity and forge my name & then profit from that forgery while representing themselves to be me, even if they didn't qualify or deserve to hold such a title. Such person(s) have been disqualified not less than four times in the Federal Court's (Maine, Illinois, Georgia & Hawaii) yet still advertise themselves to be ethical and have the highest standards. It's been found that if one is not Qualified in 'one' court then they are not Qualified in 'any' court, must less 'Four' Federal Courts. I have been given a polygraph examination, and the results were "No Deceit Indicated"
This person has also been dis-qualified in several district courts in several states. His son's unqualified/unprofessional opinion has also been 'over-ruled' in Judge Judith Scheindlin's (Judge Judy) court on T.V. because he didn't follow procedure/protocol in making his unqualified decision. You should notice that he has never taken the time to 'brag' about this instance!!!
It has been shown by these relatives that they would not hesitate to "Throw their own Mother under the Bus" and use unfortunate situations to cover their evil actions..... I regret these vulgar deeds....
I have worked with law enforcement (State & Federal) in my job of defending myself & my clients and refuse to allow such gregarious and pernicious deeds to hurt me.
I have had to remind some on occasion, that "My expertise is for sale, my opinion is not".
Any picture I have placed on any Find a Grave memorial may NOT be used on any other web site and may Not be copied for any other purpose.
IF YOU WANT A TRANSFER or make Corrections, READ THE FOLLOWING:
Because of a recent abuse of a fellow contributor by someone who was obviously confused about the Find A Grave guidelines and or transfers, I suggest the following for anyone who asks me for a transfer:
1) Please use "Suggest a Correction" for transfer requests or corrections. It is found under the edit tab on the upper right corner (in the memorial of the one you want transfered). I will respond only to those who do.
2) If you ask for a transfer please include your relationship to the memorial and your contributor I.D. You must be a member of Find A Grave and have a contributor ID in order to request a transfer and/or manage memorials on Find A Grave. If you use the "Suggest a Correction" you won't have to identify yourself, your Find a Grave I.D. will already be there.
3) If you have a problem with something I have posted, please Email me or click on "suggest a correction" instead of posting it on my contributor page where it would use important space that can be used for more important things. I will address the issue as quickly as I possibly can.
Please keep this in mind: Those of us who contribute to Find A Grave, do so voluntarily and free of charge. This is a part time hobby of mine, and began purely as a search for the relatives I never knew. It is now also done for the purpose of freely assisting people interested in doing research of their family history or their geneology.

No, the only census John Courtney family - 1860 Montebello twp Hancock Co. Illinois. By 1870 parents died and children dispersed. Thank you for offer but parish records Lake Charles were already checked. Many thanks if you can put parents of Dennis on the findagrave for him. Catherine

Yes Dennis had siblings - none others in Louisiana however. He worked on the RRs in Texas but died in Lake Charles. I don't know where he was in 1920, maybe on a RR camp the census taker missed him that year? His parents, John Courtney and Ellen O'Hea were both born in County Cork, Ireland. They married in Keokuk, Iowa and had a farm in Hancock County, Illinois, across the river from Keokuk. John and Ellen both died young and all their children were orphans.
In some records Dennis Courtney is listed as a widower but we never knew the name of wife or if any children. Dennis's brother Michael was my great-grandfather. We do know what happened with all the siblings of Dennis, just trying for any other details about Dennis's life. Due to railroad work he was not much in contact with his his birth family.

Dear Mr Baggett: Thank you so very much for the tokens left on my sons memorials. I do not get to laugh to often, but you brought a laugh to me with the hammer and nail on Ray's. Thank you so very much. I needed a laugh.
|Nancy Broumley||RE: M. Sanders|
I am working on it!
|Mary Agnes Hammett||Re: Bertha Bernard & Hattie Berthelot|
Thank you.... Much appreciated!!!!!!!!!!
|Virginia Wilson Bailey||Young Cemetery!|
Thanks for the information, I appreciate your thoughtfulness.
Most of our Young family came from near Alcovy Mountain, Georgia. Some moved to Bienville, Claiborne & Webster Parish, Louisiana. Some even went to East Texas.
I am working hard on Bistineau Cemetery, Heflin, LA. Hopefully, before long, I will have it in good shape and photographed to almost 100%. I have been trying to identify unknown graves.
