Hi Jerry,
In the 1860 census I find George Monbeck, son of John Monbeck & Nancy Jane Luse to be born in 1860. You say on the stone it says 1879. They were married in 1855 so he could have been born in 1860.

RE: Julius Wesley Patterson
Hi Jerry, thanks for the info on your friend and neighbor. I have no family connection with Julius; his wife was a "Shook" descendant and distantly related to my husband. It would be my pleasure to transfer should you want to add more info, links, etc. I think it is ironic that my husband's distant relatives ended up in Sweetwater. They were from Webster Co, Missouri. My husband is from California. I am, well... from Dallas, TX. My mom is from Winters, TX... so I am very familiar with Sweetwater (especially Rattlesnake round up, hehe). I used to listen to the news all the time and all they ever said was Sweetwater-Abilene, i always thought it was one town. My parents met at Dyess AFB back in 1969. Another ironic thing, i moved to Washington State back in 2000. I lived in Shelton, WA (where Julius' first wife passed away) very briefly. It is a small town. Not many ppl have heard of it, kind of like Winters. I then moved to Los Angeles - where I met my husband, had my daughters and then now back to Texas, living in Austin. Sorry for the long story. Please let me know if you would like a transfer, again it would be my pleasure.

RE: Maribel B. Patterson
Hi, Jerry. Mrs. Patterson is indeed buried at Sweetwater Cemetery: I started genealogy in 2003. The visual transcription (from whence I obtained Sweetwater Cemetery data) was done in 1992. So I have a time frame of 1992-2003 that sometimes has "holes". Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I created her memorial and included her obituary from the Abilene paper. Hope it helps! Blessings for 2014! Janie

Fredrick T. Bowman
Jerry, This is not your Fredrick Bowman. This is my Great great grandfather who was married to Alice McClure all his life. Please unlink Asa as his son, he never had a son Asa. I did some checking on and your Fredrick was Fredrick H. Bowman married to Bertha Ankrim. If I can help further, please let me know.

Jerry, I've transferred your brother's memorial to you. I was so caught up in discovering that you are brothers that I didn't make your parents' links on his memorial before transferring it to you. Would you please do that?

Family belongs with family. John's memorial belongs to you know, where it should be.

RE: Nancy Jane Luse
She was not listed in the book I have on the Old Monticello Cemetery.
Sorry I can't be of more help.

RE: Your Father
Thank you uncle Jerry. I wish I could've known him. I saw all the pages you added as well. I didn't even know that all those pages were on here. I love the BIOS for granmama and granddaddy. I learned things about them that I didn't know. Do you have any pictures of them we could add to there memorial pages?
