Birth: Jan. 13, 1915
Taylor County
Texas, USA
Death: Feb. 23, 1969
Callahan County
Texas, USA

B.L. Vines was born son of Stella Mae (Estella) Wells (1887 - 1959) and Joseph Green Vines (1885 - 1938)

His names was literally B L Vines from Birth. No one knows why his father and Mother named him this as there are no others in the family tree with these initials.

He became the husband of Blanche Campbell Purvis (1920 - 1979) He was the Father of four, though technically only biologically the father of 3 as Blanche had been previously married to Carl Farris, and to that union they had one daughter, Margo Farris. However after the B L & Blanche married BL adopted and raised Margo as his own and was a very loving Father to all.

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there I do not die
I am not there, I do not sleep
I am in a thousand winds that blow
I am the softly falling snow
I am the gentle showers of rain
I am the fields of ripening grain
I am in the morning hush
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight
I am the star shine of the night
I am in the flowers that bloom
I am in a quiet room
I am the birds that sing
I am in each lovely thing
Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there I do not die~
by Mary Elizabeth Frye 1932

A very sincere thanks to Mr Tom Ivey for his help in the placement of these three memorial stones, not only BL but his Father and Mother as well, all which had no stones for many years.
