Hi, sorry I didn't respond earlier - missed your message somehow. I won't be going over to that area anytime soon. Still trying to set up house from a move. Sorry, can't help you now. Bobbye Varner

RE: Ivy Iris Pierce
I cannot locate any memorial for any of the people you mention in your note to me - can you provide Find A Grave memorial #'s? Thanks.

There is another Boykin cemetery off Hwy 63. These are his descendants as well. The cemetery you created already exist as Sterling Boykin Family Cemetery also referred to as Boykin Cemetery at Boykin Springs Lake and campground.

Thank you

Swift infants in Maxwell Pearce Cemetery
I think these two infants may be my aunts Barbara June Swift and 1927-1929 and Patty Frances Swift 1929-1933. If there is no stone for them in the Fairview Cemetery then this would be their marker I am pretty sure. They were daughters of W. Grady and Frances Franklin Swift, who were living at that time on the ranch of Isaac Thomas and Margaret Carver Swift. Both died tragically in childhood accidents. Their two sisters were Virginia Grace Swift (Loy) 1931~2002 and Grady Ann Swift MacAlister, the last surviving of the four sisters. Thank you so much for all of the dedicated work you have done with these memorials.

RE: Maxwell Cemetery
The poem by Thelma Greene Reagan, pretty much sums it up. Sorry to hear about her passing.

RE: Maxwell Cemetery
I removed the ones I had on Maxwell Cemetery. Too many duplications out there. This cemetery is too far for me to travel, I live in Tennessee and we have a few issues of our own about forgotten cemeteries. If I lived out there, I would be glad to pitch in on the clean up. Take care

Thank you
Dorothy: Thank you so much for all of the hard work you have done on Pearce-Maxwell Cemetery in Wilson Co., TX.
The dedication you have for making sure the cemeteries on findagrave are correct is truly worth making note of.

Thank you for that dedication and all the help you have given to me personally in reseaching families buried in Pearce-Maxwell Cemetery.

RE: Neal's
Dorothy, Thanks so much for letting me know. It looks as though ya'll have gotten some work done on the cemetery. As for George W. Neal, I see you mentioned a difference in dates. Is it possible, he is the son of John W. and Anna Elizabeth nee SMITH Neal? I notice he has a son born about 1846 or 1847. I'll let you know when I have additional information. You've done a great job. Connie
