Family and friends are my greatest treasures! I became interested in locating cemeteries when my daughter Shelley and I found the Miller Cemetery in Woodbine, TX. Also, I am continuing the genealogy hobby started by my Grandmother Miller: researching the families of Creech and Bailey from Lee County VA, Joseph Miller, Turner, Goodnight, and Dye from Cooke County Texas. In addition, I am interested in the Gaar, Quick, and Switzer families from Carroll County IL and their descendants. Being the family historian, I also inherited "Mom's" vast photo album. I am trying to include photos of our family, which can be copied by direct family for private use only.

This provides me a way to honor my father and mother and bless my family. I always excited to find Christian heritage in my family.

2 Cor.5:6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: 7(For we walk by faith, not by sight:) 8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

A note of interest: My photo was taken in 2007 at Union Hill Cemetery in Callisburg, TX. Sarah Frances Goodnight Turner was my GG Grandmother. Her line links us to Charles Goodnight and Harry Truman.

Benjamin Franklin said: "Show me your burial grounds and I'll show you a measure of the civility of a community."

*(Please ask before copying any of my photos. They may be copied by direct family for private use only! They are not to be posted online or used commercially.)

Yes, I would like a copy of any of the pics you have. She is mt great-grandmother "Gran", who raised my mother (Betty) and Aunt Pat (Patricia) after their mother (Hazel) died. Her middle name was Pearl.

John P Gaar birth date

I added the new John P Gaar birth date to the bio section of the memorial. The other birth date was calculated off of the headstone information. Look OK to you?

Marie Creech Green 2nd
Hi Jann,

Sorry for the two messages - I didn't notice the second one you sent. I am actually related to her myself, so I prefer to maintain her memorial at this time. But I'll keep your email and will give you priority if I ever do decide to transfer. I will be happy to make any additions or corrections that you have though. If I weren't related I would have been happy to transfer to you. Perhaps we can compare notes and such.

Kind regards,

Hi Jann,

Thanks so much for pointing out the correction for her name. I knew her nickname was Mollie - I don't know HOW I managed to put Mary! Are you related to the Green side or the Creech side? I am related on the Green side of the family.

Kind regards,

John P Gaar

Thanks for the suggestions! I have edited the information for both John P Gaar and Elizabeth Shoemaker Garr. I also realized they are both listed in my family tree so I will be adding the photos there too. It is a pretty distant connection - They are the "great grandparents of the wife of the 1st great grand uncle of my wife"

Thanks again,
Eric Strand
