Bio Photo Remember the Past ~ Imagine the Future

Volunteer: by definition means "a person who performs a service willingly and without pay." That is what its all about here on Find A Grave; volunteers giving freely of their time and resources. Yes, some have more time than others; more time to add more names, find more info and do more research, but that does not diminish the importance of the contributor who only has time to add just basic names. Sometimes its the smallest clue that brings the biggest results.

PLEASE try to remember because we are dedicated "Gravers" we have stomped through mud puddles, walked for miles, swatted mosquitoes, got stung by fire ants, stood out in 105 degree summer sun and/or froze our rear off on a cold & frosty winter morning - all to get that perfect photo (at our time & expense) others have requested from some remote cemetery out in the "boonies". So please, instead of complaining to us that we misspelled your loved ones name on the memorial pg we made for them (we are human, we all make mistakes, and we are more than happy to correct our typos), please consider how wonderful it would be for us to hear an occasional "thank you for your efforts."

Me, I volunteer in any area where I have the resource material to do so. My primary interest is in Angelina, Llano, Mason, Milam & Williamson counties but I'll research any that I can.
NOTE-NOTE-NOTE: I am one of many contributors who no longer (knowingly) links to "UNKNOWN" BURIALS. Please try to discover the final disposition before making an entry.
NOTE: Per the Find A Grave guidelines, I do not post photos which I did not take, or have personal ownership of, or permission to use - that means newspaper obit photos. IF I post an obit photo in the future it means I knew the person or family.(updated Oct 2012)

About Find A Grave: if you are new to Find A Grave (1) PLEASE read the FAQ section BEFORE you start asking for transfers or sending suggestions, corrections, additions, comments, etc. And when you do send your comments/requests (2) PLEASE use the "edit" tab found on each memorial pg to send your msg. Use of the edit tab takes us straight to the name in question and cuts down on mistakes. And (3) Unless I know you and know your work, PLEASE state the source (or reason) for the change/addition in the info (death certificate, obit, census, family Bible, personal knowledge, etc) I know I sometimes forget to add these to my SAC's, so if you need to know where I got my info, just ask me (for me, most will be from TXDC's or the census)

ABOUT MY PERSONAL FAMILY PHOTOS: you DO NOT have permission to take/use any of my personal family photos, period! (unless I personally tell you its ok) If you have interest in any of my personal family lines, contact me, tell me who you are and what your interest in my family names is.

ABOUT THE TOMBSTONE PHOTOS I ADD: if they are your family and you wish to add them to your family trees, yes you may do so, BUT remember to give credit where credit is due and note that you found it on Find A Grave "courtesy of Deb in Angelina Co". On the other hand, you DO NOT have permission to take & re-post my photos from other websites, or those here on Find A Grave, under your name as if you were the photographer. Whether good, bad, old, or new, I recognize my own photos. It's not about "owning", it's about giving another person the credit for the effort they went to, to gather & post data for the benefit of those who are searching for family. Thank you!

Names of personal interest to me (for one reason or another) are too many to list, but my main line of research interests are in surnames: Alvis, Baugh, Collins, Coursey, Leslie, Hammond, Mankins, Moore, Mott, Murphy, Roberts, Secrest, Sharp, and numerous names associated with those families.

Other surnames of interest are: Camp, Broomfield, Gallion, Kendrick, Keith, Pitts, Martin, Sunday, Tull/Tullos and those associated with them.

Jerry and JD Smith
Hi Deb. Its great to hear from you after meeting at Clarks ferry 4 or 5 years ago. I do not have any new information about Jerry Smith who was married to Nicy Ann, nor JD Smith 1825-1863. Those two man are the only unresolved people in the cemetery, in my mind. So if you ever confirm additional information about them I would love to know. Thank you and keep up the good work ! Roselyn

Re: JS Smith Family Gause Cemetery
You are correct on the child. But I can only go by the death certificate at this point. I have built a Ancestry tree to trace the family. My suspicion was the child was actually a grandchild of the parents listed. Which makes you wonder if Nicey Ann has children listed from birth year of 1809 to 1947, one is 1935. George W. was her son born 1918. She states she is a widow in the 1930 census but it is possible she was divorced or separated. I decided to link Juanita as it was in the legal record until I can find otherwise. I have traced several "Jerry" and Jeremiah S. Smith's to try to find the correct one. I have about eliminated all that lived in Texas. Fun. It is possible that Jerry Smith was a Civil War orphan or a runaway to Texas young man. I am working on trying to find any Jerry or Jeremiah Smith that was on the 1870 Census that is not 'found' or recorded already elsewhere.

Burial Location
The memorial for Eletha Humphreys, # 158719685, lists an unknown burial location. I posted the monument pic that was in the Fairview Cemetery near Nacogdoches. Thanks again.

The obit info for Billy Lee, # 153033093, mentions some uncertainty as to which cemetery he is in. I posted the marker pic and it was located in the Nacogdoches County Fairview Cemetery. Thanks.
