Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a retired chemical engineer living in the Houston area, though my wife and I grew up in Austin, Texas. We are researching the branches of our family that spread from Central Texas to East Texas, over to Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, and all the way up to Ohio. We have found this site to be extremely helpful to us, and we hope that we will add information that will be of help to others.

We have been searching Texas, Georgia and Ohio cemeteries for Cox, Whitt, Koos, Blower, Stewart, Davis, Cherry, Ely, Hubbard, Zimmer, Miller, Watson, Cross, Hurley, Locke, and Braly, but in the process of looking for our relatives, we have been taking additional photographs, especially in cemeteries where not many photos are available. YOU MAY USE ANY OF OUR HEADSTONE PHOTOS without asking our permission; however, we would appreciate receiving credit for our photo.

If we manage a memorial for your relative, and it is not someone related to us, we will be more than happy to transfer the management to you. Unlike some contributors, we usually do transfer non-direct relatives such as cousins, aunts and uncles.

RE: Laura J Hayburn
Your husband sure did in my case with the Copes,found the smoking gun.I thank you so very much for all that work you did to send me copies of them. Another surprise was that I didn't know but one of the Cope males,Floyd Cope married my husband's Aunt Opal Henning making Floyd an Uncle to me in marriage but yet blood to me. How about that! I now can close the Copes ancestors to rest,again THANK YOU! Stella

RE: Laura J Hayburn
Thank you for the research on this family of mine. Henry Cope was married before to Mirian,I had got information from a man by the last name of Ireland but I believe he has passed.He was connected to her and his familytree as a Ggrandparent but didn't know if she had died giving birth or divorce but I think it was child birth but I didn't have the first set of children by Henry than he married my ggrandmother,Emma,also called Amy. My grandmother was a Cope. I would appreicate any information you may have on them.A lot of people puts information online without checking the sourses,usually by family and makes so many errors for us that works very hard to get history of the families as well and correct,Again,thank your help.

RE: Meshick Hamilton # 110731782
John Richard "Jack" Clark, Jr Find A Grave Memorial# 93173360 no longer has any parents listed
Jeannie Duncan made the changes I thot were needed. Also next time I will do the edit and use appropriate link #'s and make it easier to sort out my request. I was so tired from working on this and I had not done any thing on Find A Grave for awhile. You have Meshick Hamilton, Meshick's wife Mary Lewis Hamilton # 110731813 and 3 of their children, William Hamilton, Cecelia Hamilton Cavey and Elizabeth Ann Hamilton Clark. Elizabeth was the problem, but Jeanne removed 1 son who was not the correct one and G Man or Jeanne removed my wife’s Earl A Clark, which was nOt related to this family, MISSION ACCOMPLISHED and I am sorry to have made you wonder what you could do. In this case, nothing, but my reaon for messaging you was you were a creator of John Richard "Jack" Clark, Jr Maintained by: Jeannie Duncan, Originally Created by: texnative
Record added: Jul 06, 2012: Find A Grave Memorial# 93173360. I am finding numerous errors, especially connecting or linking persons to the wrong family. Note John Jr. has been removed, which solves one problem. Tks for the response and my apologies for not using Edit, but in this request, no edit was needed for you. Just an FYI.

Meshick Hamilton # 110731782
I am trying to help you and Jeannie Duncan make corrections and see what links you can make between the Meshick Hamilton # 110731782 and John Richard Clark Sr. #93159758 maintained by Jeanne Duncan. None of these people are my line. My wife had to get the G Man to remove her Clark relative from the above Clark line. Thus we found all this info trying to prove our case regarding the error.
