RE: irene ray
Hello Charles,

Yes, Bonnie Irene Bandy (Irene Ray) was my dad's half-sister, their mother being Alloma Bandy. My Dad was Earl Fretwell from Alloma's first marriage to Lovic Fretwell.

I didn't know Irene really well, having grown up in Montana, but she was a very special person, wanting me to know all about my Dad's family. She sent me several pictures which are on my family tree on It's under Carroll-Fretwell-Dreidlein. I wish I knew more about her. I don't have the date of her death. Maybe you could fill me in. Her son, Bobby Gene, was MIA in Vet Nam. I met him in San Diego when he first joined the Navy and I was a shy teen. She died never knowing what happened to him. Very sad. Would like to know more about her if you are so inclined. Thanks.

Anyway, thank you for contacting me about our Burgess Ancestors. Yes, perhaps we'll both have information to help the other. Though I'm not sure that I'll have all that much to impart. I shall contact you by email. -- Teresa

RE: burgess
I live in Bell County. Milam is to the east a bit. I may be able to do a little research and find where the burials are.

RE: Jessie Burgess #68444971
Hi, Charles, I double-checked and it appears Jessie is only linked now to Mary once.

I am not related to Jessie at all. I have been adding memorials from the local cemetery and not related to any of them. (I'm not a "True Texan")

Transferring him to you now.

Have a great one,

Jessie Burgess #68444971
Hello, I just received your request to edit Jessie's memorial, however, you state "The second mary martha eslinger should be deleted. I have a copy of the marriage certificate."

I'm not quite sure what you mean, especially about the marriage certificate, but I was able to remove Mary from Jessie's memorial once. It looks like you accidentally added her twice to his memorial. (No big deal and easy to fix)

If you are family, I will be more than happy to transfer Jessie to you. All the information that Kelley and I have provided on the memorial is accurate.

Thank you,

Please, please
If it is "Burial Unknown," don't add it.
