Bio and Links
"Essef" is a husband - wife team which researches and maintains family memorials as a place to remember and link our family members for the education of our own descendants, extended family and interested genealogists. We also have an extensive collection of old family photographs which we gradually want to make available to others. We love American and UK history and we believe it is increasingly important that each generation have a sense of its background and formation - of the real people and stories that have created us as individuals, and as a nation.

Our family names focus on the following long list: Coykendall, Staggs, Maynard, Newton, Williamson, Sedgwick, Lockwood, McKee, Hatcher, Trevor-Roper, Nickell, Lusson, Tilley, Easterby, Ferrel, Blower, Petefish, Clevenger, Larue, Sage, Martin, Fry, Stanly, Berthalf, Armistead, Reese, Merlin, Watson, McAllister and more. If any of these names stand out and form a grouping for you, you might find your own family in our records.

Our memorials are a long-term labor of love. Due to lack of mobility we focus on posting and updating short biographies as time and research allow, rather than on the crucial legwork of adding thousands of new entries. That we are forced to leave to the Find-a-Grave heroes who have helped us so much in our own quests.

Though we focus on direct family lines, we also manage the memorials of family siblings with no living descendants to care for them, as well as some unrelated memorials we have found in our historical and local travels.

Our children have been designated as custodians of our work, which we hope will provide long-term insight and interest for those who belong to or encounter these families, their memorials and portraits.

We are happy to transfer memorials from whom we have no direct descent, to direct descendants who will care for them, according to Find a Grave guidelines.

You can probably ignore my comment about the change of name: I later discovered you had given it in the notes for his first wife.
The property in Wales is spelled Plas Tęg.

RE: Robena Belle Ross #54304954
Check out the memorials for the Ross family in Panhandle Cemetery. I added photos today. Unfortunately, the stone for Robena is one of those that is very difficult to photograph and get the engraving. I posted the photo-shopped pics I took, but will stop there again at a different time of day to see if I can get at better photo.

Thanks for your kind words. I will be going to Amarillo next week and will stop at the cemetery in Panhandle to see if there are markers I can photograph for this family. I think the section they are in is one I have not completed.

Dolly is supposed to be buried with, or next to Walter Comstock according to my sister who was at the funeral.

I connected Walter and Juanita. I will find where Dolly is buried. Thanks so much.
