Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a life long resident of Fort Worth, Texas. I have been researching my families genealogy since 1975.
MOST of my memorials are my ancestors, or extended family. If you have any questions, or would like something added please feel free to ask. I will be glad to transfer any but direct relatives.

I am researching FANNING GRISSOM LAWSON BRUSH and those associated on my Mothers side.
I am researching CLARK BUTLER HOLMSLEY KITTLE and those associated on my fathers side. All in Texas.

Please check out my TEXAS Confederate Soldiers. They represent every branch of my family.

A Poem I found on this site:
We are child and an invisible cord...not seen by the eye...It's not like the cord that connects us 'till birth ...this cord can't be seen by any on earth....This cord does its work...right from the start...It binds us together....attached to my heart...I know that it's there...though no one can see...the invisible cord from my child to me......The strength of this cord is hard to describe...It can't be can't be denied.....It's stronger than any cord man could create....It withstands the test...can hold any weight.....And though you are gone...though you are not here with me....This cord is still there...but no one can see......It pulls at my heart...I am bruised...I am sore....But this cord is my never before......I am thankful that God connects us this way....A mother and child....death can't take it away!

RE: Aletha Purvis #29736628
Hi Virginia,

I found Aletha Purvis' death certificate by searching the last name on I never have any luck on Ancestry, to many transcription errors!

I found Ada's maiden name from her and Dr. W.E. Davis', (Lamar County) marriage record. I'm hoping to find Ada's father and Aletha's maiden name before moving on.

RE: Myra Dudley 77206624
The death certificate records her middle name as Armenthia.

Maybe you could make a note on the memorial page with the family name and the various spellings and sources.

RE: Eugene McGill 146858785

Cecelia Rector Davis was given a burial date of June 30th, 1967 per the Forest Lawn database.

During this time frame it means she may have passed away about three to five days earlier.

Also buried in this plot with Cecelia are William Elvin Davis who was buried February 5th, 1955.

Baby Boy Dean who was buried September 22nd, 1945.

Baby Girl Dean who was buried May 13th, 1953.

Ethyl Mary Davis Dean was buried with the above people on September 9th, 2010.

I sent you an email with additional information that may help you with your searches obituary and marriage searches in Omaha, Douglas County, Nebraska.

Let me know what else I can help with.

RE: Bert Melton 68073908
According to the Cemetery records. There is a Beluah Melton (8/30/1903-2/15/1997) buried next to Burt Melton, but it seem her name was never added to the Headstone.

RE: Spring Valley Cemetery
Hi Virginia,

The picture I took is showing "WESS Holmesley Jr, so I must have typed in the wrong name of E. Holmesley perhaps; However to your question, yes, all the photos for that name would have been from the same group location as Burrel & Rachel.
I maybe able to go back to crosscheck if I get some time and GOOD weather next week.
I've not been available in the last few years to do much volunteer photo traveling.

Sincerely, RC
