Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have visited cemeteries for many years. Family history is a hobby I really enjoy. My grandmother Deola Mae Wenner Merriott got me started and others, such as cousin James Clayton Kirksey, encouraged me.Some of the surnames I research:GOATESHENRYKIRKSEYMERRIOTTREDDELLWAGNERWASSONWENNERWOMACKI love Civil War history. Six of my ancestors were Confederate veterans. In the last few years I have been researching members of Cocke's Company, Benavides' Cavalry Regiment. This company served along the Texas-Mexico Border and fought in the last battle of the Civil War, the Battle of Palmito Ranch, near Brownsville, Texas.

Thank you for the transfer. We loved her very much and some of my fondest memories are going to her home when I was young.

RE: Cocke Cemetery
I've been looking for the Cocke cemetery for a while. It was cleaned up during a Boy Scout's Eagle project in 2007. Your welcome.
