Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Mesquite, Texas and have one son still at home...and, am a Grandma, twice, thanks to my daughter. I am married and have a dog, a cat, and some fish.

Mine is probably not that unusual a story, filling-in my husband's family (Newman, Thornhill, Vineyard, Lawrence, Vaughan, mostly) and also for my natural parents, whom I met at the age of 26 (Smith, Kuykendall, Ward, Shipman, Carr, Priddy & Rogers). I was adopted and, besides becoming a complete freak over this stuff, I'd like to know more medical history and why and how people passed. There have been some truly interesting stories. It is an invaluable experience, even when reading about people who are not related!

If you'd like corrections / editions to any of memorials I manage, I'm "good" with either method of requests - doesn't matter to me...just need the name of the person and the memorial #, and I'd like some type of supporting documentation, if possible, that I can add to the memorial. That way, I won't lose my mind and forget where the information came from! :) Or, use the edit tab...I'm not picky...

Please contact me if I can help anyone out there! I'm happy to help! Besides: It gives me a mission!

Hey J,

According to his death cert# 03626, here's John K Kuykendall's correct info:

Birth 11 FEB 1875 Martins Mill, Van Zandt County, Texas
Death 2 JAN 1964 Houston, Harris, Texas

If you wanted to transfer your Find A Grave memorial to me, that would be fine as he's my great uncle, and I could update or you can.

Thanks for your question. d

MacArthur High School
I graduated from MacArthur high School in 1976. Are you aware of any other Virtual Cemeteries for MacArthur? I'm fairly new to this web-site and haven't figured out how to search for virtual cemeteries yet.
Also, Karen Gatlin, was my bestie in high school. She passed away 11/14/16. Her FindAGrave memorial number is 172868186. She graduated in 1976 as well. If you're able to add her that would be great.

Thanks so much,
Karen (Weatherford) Lambert

Bertha Smith-Frost
Bertha is my great grandmother. her father was Walter Smith and her mother was molly Holmes. I have her Birth certificate. She was Born in Forrest City Arkansas and Died there. She was raised by her grand parents William and Sarah Smith. We do not know anything about her mother only that she died before my grandmother was 10 and Walter died 1899. I have a photo of his head stone. If you can shed any new light on my Great Grandparents it would be so much help.

Tank you

Peyson Thomas Yates
His parents are Loyd Yates from Orange Co NC and his mother is Elizabeth Brassfield. The Benjamin Loyd Yates in KY is not the same man. (In his pension, he lists all of the places he ever lived and NC wasn't listed) All of the children of Loyd who moved to TN and AR are from NC, according to census records and the following Goodspeeds reference .
Goodspeeds of NE AR Clay Co p. 257

Bessie Caldwell, Tuttle, OK
Do you have something to document that Bessie's middle initial is NOT K.? Also can you document her last name?

Leur Jacobsen Van Kuykendall
Not sure how this works? Went to post his message and I see it is public so that answered one of my questions.

I worked really hard on different branches of the family and was staying up half the night. Haven't looked at anything for couple weeks now.

I was able to go back and find my post to you but didn't see anything that looked new about Leur or his family.

I'm waiting for my DNA results and hope that will give me more positive direction on all my branches.

Please, what ever information you can share and any help you can give is greatly appreciated.
