my quest for you is from the heart.
For somewhere back in time,
we share the same family line.

The Elusive Ancestor

I went searching for an ancestor, I cannot find him still.
He moved around from place to place and did not leave a will.
He married where a courthouse burned, he mended all his fences.
He avoided any man who came to take the U.S. census.
He always kept his luggage packed, this man who had no fame.
And every 20 years or so, this rascal changed his name.
I'm told he's buried in a plot, with tombstone he was blessed; But the weather took engraving, and some vandals took the rest.
He died before the court clerks decided to keep records.
No family bible has emerged, in spite of all my efforts.
To top it off, this ancestor who caused me many groans, just to give me one more pain, betrothed a girl named JONES!!!

Hi Shani,

Margaret is actually buried at Hale Cemetery and has a memorial-132361403. (I descend from John Stephens brother, Henry Schuyler.) I recently visited the cemetery and she is buried next to her first husband.

Steven Schlah
Nunley Family
My name is Steven Schlah and I noticed that you have placed some very nice rememberances on the "Find a Grave" websites of relatives of mine (the Nunleys), who are interred in various Texas cemeteries. I thank you for that. As a retired History teacher, I have been researching 'my family' for the past few years and only stumbled on the "grave site" site last year. While my direct involvement is only fairly recent, I would love to share that with you, as it is quite interesting, but I reserve the right to not do so, do to family feelings. Suffice it to say that I am a direct descendant.
But again, thank you.
Steven Schlah ( I can't)

memorial site #43518586
The child listed in this memorial is not my brother, nor is he one of my fathers children. Russell Eugene Wilcox was never a child of Arlie Lee Gritts or Kathleen Joyce Gritts. I want his name removed immediately from this memorial site.
the only three children to be listed are:

Gerald Lee Gritts b. 1956
Lillian (Gritts)Wilson b. 1959
LaDonna Ruth Gritts b. 1963
