In my quest for learning more about my family I discovered I have a love for old cemeteries. I love the old monuments they are truly a work of art. I always wonder when I see a headstone, who that person was, "really" and say a pray for their descendants and family members. Some might say it's silly. |
I am a housewife and grandmother. I love gardening, quilting and digging in the dirt as I climb my family tree. I get so passionate and excited when I find something that teaches me who my family is. I have always loved U.S. History and have discovered that my ancestors were soldiers in the Rev War, War of 1812, Civil War, WWI and WWII. My heritage is one of pride in our country and faith in God. The more I've learned about my family who's passed the easier it is to understand who and why I am who I am. I was a change of life baby so I didn't have the privilege of my grand parents for very long. So, I've always had a curiosity "who were they"; they migrated from MO in covered wagons; rode the OR trail during the Gold Rush, earned enough to buy land in TX; members of christian congregations, pioneers everywhere they went it seems. One of my 4th Great Grandfathers was actually the founder of the First Presbyterian Church of Rockwall Texas. They have been mentioned in histories/books. It has been soooo much fun.
I actually discovered that one of my grandfathers' was a Mason by the engraving on his headstone. We can learn so much about who people are by their headstones.
If I can help someone get a bit closer to their family then it makes all the time I've invested worth every moment spent.

Sorry about the duplication in request for help. I am already talking to you about the Fletcher Family. If you need more of what I have I can send that? Thanks

I was the owner of the Fletcher memorials, so I linked Margaret Genes, and Callie Gill. Marvin was already linked. In Ollie's obituary, it lists a daughter named Mrs. S.A. Grizzle. Do you know her name? Is it Margaret? I own a Margaret Grizzle memorial in the same Section as the others.
I found and requested links for Mattie Grizzle and Carrie Schelski.
If you are looking for information at Resthaven, you can contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure to mention your relationship otherwise they do not like to share.
Let me know if I can help more.
Thank you for all the beautiful headstone photos and information.
I noticed you have my Great Uncle and Aunt Thomas Dawson Fletcher and Ollie Violet Fletcher Memorials linked. I was wondering, their daughter Margaret G Genes and son Marvin G Fletcher (whom are twins) are also buried in the same cemetery. My guess is there are more there but need to research further.
