Bio and Links
Bio Photo After years of researching my roots as far back as using microfilm and microfiche, I finally gave up on genealogy and re-entered my teaching career, Now, after a second retirement, I literally stumbled upon Find A Grave. What a wonderful website! What a worthy service! The genealogy bug has bitten again and I am on a mission to honor my BOLTON, MELTON,SEXTON, KINARD , and STRINGER ancestors with my ancient and hopefully some new information that may have not been entered. I have already been found two Stringer second cousins. I can't help thinking just how helpful this website will be to those researchers to come and somehow feel my loved one are smiling, maybe even a sending a big thank you.
I welcome corrections when you find mistakes and have been pleasantly surprised by the helpfulness of other contributors Thanks and blessings to all. Sandra Vlasin.

RE: Kincaid correspondence
Got your message, Sandra. The problem lies in the fact that you cannot link parents to children on the parents' page. Parents can only be linked on each child's memorial. Once each child has been linked to his/her parents, the links will show on both the child's and the parent's memorials.

When I looked at the info placed on Hub's memorial, I found that I manage the three girls' memorials, so I linked them to their parents. When you visit Hub & Ophelia's memorials now, you will see their three daughters linked.

This process if very difficult to explain, so I hope I didn't completely confuse you. Since the manager of Hub's memorial didn't manage those of the girls, he did all he could do to show the girls as Hub's daughters.

Hope this is "clear as mud". Let me know if you need anything else.

Blessings! Janie

Hi, I just saw your email address and took this conversation off the wall and sent you an email. It might have gone to junk mail since I'm not in your contacts! :)

RE: Donald K. Bruner
Hi, I'm glad I could help! I processed a Bruner here in northern California, followed his family bunny trails and saw that the whole family didn't have a single flower on their sites, so I left "flowers" on all their sites, and sent the one edit to you. I hope this triggers a series of discoveries and energy for you! Happy hunting!

Besides, I may be a native Californian, but in reality consider myself a Texas girl. My dad was born and reared in Round Rock and Tyler, I have lots of family alive and buried around Georgetown, Amarillo, Tell, Childress, Grayson County, Dallas, even San Antonio. The big state park in central Texas - Ft. Griffith State Park - used to be my great granddaddy's longhorn ranch and the big stone house there was his home (later the park headquarters) and he is still buried in the park.

Re: William Curtis Bolton
I didn't have any other info. But after receiving your message, I did a quick search and found his death certificate. So I'm going to email it to you at the email address you have listed on your FindAGrave profile.

Hope this helps a little.

Dear Sandra;

I wish I was kin, I do love the hunt, but I am afraid I just live in the area and documented all of Rosedale Cemetery one grave at a time.
Presently working on Africian Americian Cemeteries.

I hope you don't mind but I found a copy of the article documenting the hanging of Perry and William Melton and I added it. I read through several of the graves of the Melton's and I found it fascinating. I am researching several families but I love any history of Union Parish.
