Bio and Links

"My feelings are in each family there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve.

To me, doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all who have gone before."

RE: William Reeves
You welcome. I hate it when there is not a monument either. But sometimes family could not afford one. I know that to be a fact. They could barely scrape the money up to bury them. But at least with a print out of the lot and the other stones I was able to pin point the exact locale for you.

Adelida Mendoza
THANK YOU! I've been to Ft Towson and Hugo looking for this info before. Didn't even think of looking to Paris, TX.
You've been a great help to me.

Thank you for the information for Arcadio Mendoza. Do you have any information on his wife Adelida Floriss Mendoza? She passed five years later.

RE: photo-Stiles Gunn

Greenwood Cemetery originally said they had no record of Stiles Gunn so I checked on Genealogy Bank quickly and found the following obituary for him with wife, Elizabeth also. That updated info enabled Greenwood to find the gravesite for both. In case you don't have the obituary info I have copied it below.

Best regards, Keith Westman

RE: photo-Stiles Gunn
My pleasure to be of help. Buried next to Stiles Gunn is his wife, Elizabeth A. Gunn. Her memorial wasn't connected to Stiles' but I didn't search to see if there is one already. If not, you can create one and I can then upload the picture I took of her plaque also so just let me know. Best regards, Keith
