Bio Photo Hello,

Welcome to my Find-A-Grave page. I create memorials for my family members that do not yet have pages.

I have an interest in conversing with my relatives in order to share pictures, records, and to further clarify the family tree.

Memorial# 155263782
I found the obituary for Hazel Qualls. I also found her husband's Memorial #22694480. Hazel is buried beside her husband at Terry County Memorial Cemetery. Her obituary would make a nice Bio if you are willing to use it.
Best regards,
David Cross #48949781

Hazel Qualls, 84, passed away on November 1, 2015 at Heritage Manor in Plano, Texas. She was born on November 23, 1930 in Hockley County, Texas to Elbert Vernon Rogers and Ena Brock Rogers. Hazel grew up in Seminole, Texas and graduated from Seminole High School. Hazel married James Riley Qualls in Lovington, New Mexico in 1949. Together they raised 2 daughters, Wanda Florence Qualls and Geneva Lehrman-Howell. They were happily married for 50 years. James and Hazel enjoyed taking summer fishing trips to Stanford, Texas. Hazel, who was known by many as Meme, thoroughly enjoyed watching Wheel of Fortune and spent many hours completing crossword puzzles. She was also known for her hand sewn quilts and won several county fair awards for her craftsmanship. But her true joy came from spending time with her family and friends. Hazel is survived by her daughter, Wanda Florence Qualls of Brownfield, Texas; her siblings, Ruth Hudson of Fort Worth, Texas; Joyce Ring (Bruce Ring) of Granbury, Texas; Marvin Rogers (Jane Rogers) of McAllen, Texas; her granddaughters, Danielle Lehrman Carter(Dee Carter) of Plano, Texas; Alissa Lehrman Iltis (Shawn Iltis) of Tucson, Arizona; Kylie Denae Qualls of Brownfield, Texas; and her great-granddaughters, Amaya Jordynn Qualls, Sydni Evelyn Iltis, Kimberlynn Grace Welch, Ellison Paige Iltis and Addison Sheree Welch. Hazel was preceded in death by her parents, Elbert and Ena Rogers; husband, James Riley Qualls; siblings, Stanley Clinton Rogers, Elbert Vernon Rogers, and Lloyd Dow Rogers; and daughter, Geneva Lehrman-Howell. A memorial service will be held at Distinctive Life, 1611 North Central Expressway, Plano, Texas on November 21, 2015 at 11 o’clock in the morning. Flowers donations may be sent to Distinctive Life. Family is requesting red and white arrangements.

Surname: KEEN
I, along with many cousins, have been researching my 2ggrandmother, Narcissus Addeline Keen/Keene from Texas, born in Tenn. None of us could find her parents. They (?) came to Dallas,Tx in about 1857 and found her in the 1860 census in Dallas. She was living with a family of Mills (?). Could find no connection there. There were other Keens on same census; did research on them but can't find a connection. I needed to know her parents names. I see you're somehow knowledgeable about the Keens and would like to ask several questions. Could or would you be able to do that? I believe her father was Eli Keen and I had her mother as Nancy Riggs, could be Nancy Barren. in the 1850 Monroe County, Ky census, there is an Adelin, born in 1844 Tenn, (maybe it was 1843) and that matches, kinda.

Dedina "Didema" Porter Crawford
Hello Ancestor Hunter,
I noticed that you were the creator of Dedina "Didema" Porter Crwaford's page. You said that Autosomal DNA links her to her parents. Do you have the evidence of that DNA? Some kind of proof?

Thanks for your efforts :).

Leah Laney
In 2013, you left a note on the memorial of George Laney - did you ever find out how Leah was related? I have her documented as being the daughter of his son John Sr (1782-1827) and Martha Secrest. I have researched this branch of the family extensively. Feel free to email me (see bio page).

Best regards,

I was reading some of the things you had put on the memorials for the Busby's. I was just wandering, because my wife is a Busby birth if there was anyway you and I could talk via email about them. I get stuck after her great great grandfather Burrell Busby that married Margaret Elizabeth Carter.

RE: Minnie Chesser
Got your message regarding the Chesser's in Forestburg. I don't know this family personally but my brother might. He also has the Montague County History book which you might find the answers there. If you don't have this book let me ask him about them after the holidays.
Merry Christmas,

It is unlikely that anyone will find your memorial for your great aunt, because it becomes more difficult to find a memorial when there is no name in the last name field.

As a descendant of Nicholas Meriwether, you might be interested in getting a copy of the new book that explores his life in Virginia in great detail: "The Meriwether Family in America, Volume I: The Colonists"
