Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thanks to EVERYONE who has helped add information and links to the memorials in Polk County. Everyone deserves a tribute and hopefully this information will help someone in their research. A special thanks to NOLLENE MARSH (1951-2016) for all the links and information that she has provided.

Please tell us about yourself in the BIO AND LINKS SECTION.
I began researching my family in about 2003. Some of the Surnames are McCraney, Williamson, Lott, Brock, Lakey, Smith, Turner and Jones. I grew up in Polk Co., TX and discovered most of my ancestors came by way of Mississippi or Alabama.

Surnames on my husband's side are Gregorcyk, Hirscy, Walker, Shives and Bluntzer.

Thanks to the people who share their information, I have been able to find an amazing amount on the Internet. The research can become addictive and never ending; there is always more to the story.

It is not my intent to offend anyone. If I have posted information that you want removed…please ask.

RE: Bonnie Sue Shives Stanford 180274383
One more thing, I added a memorial for my grandma Opal Bernice Shives but I can not figure out how to link my uncle SIDNEY and uncle ANTHONY and Aunt Bonnie to her. Any pointers? I just don't see the options when I go to edit ...

Hi Virginia,

What is the source of her obit that you sent me? Funeral Home? Source of publishing and date is required by Administration if & when adding a full obit.

Hi Virginia -- Thank you for the note on Nat's memorial page. I get all caught up in not knowing how to phrase something, but you did a good job of it. I appreciate it. At least Uncle Nat will not go unacknowledged.

Virginia, my sister and I are coming to see our grandfather's grave in 10 days. Thanks to you we have a photo of his headstone. Is there a map of the cemetery that we could use to find his place of burial?

Thank you for any help you can offer and for your work in documenting this cemetery for all of us.

Can you link #177413471 Nora Hunt to her daughter Toni Lynn Hunt #54440001? I have just added my mother Nora to find a grave and would like her and Toni to be linked. I am her sister. Thank you. The photo of her headstone is great.

RE: Memorial # 57173434
sorry for being so late. I've not been active for quite some time. I cannot locate the photo by the memorial number. Reply with the deceased name and I will try to remove the photo.

Bailey Cemetery
I found the cemetery and also spoke to the owners of the land. The first markers were taken by some one. Browder's marina replace them with new markers.
The FM road is 3278 if you would like to change it.
No other person was at this spot that I could see.
Thanks for you help.

Thank you I did find the cemetery now to find someone home to get the ok to go to it.
My problem was the FR 2926 it no longer used.

RE: Susie Anna Andrews Smith 166757767
No thank you. As you can read in the comments people send me (also per E-mail), for some ODD reason some are abusive - to say the least. I have no idea why. They see an edit as a personal attack, whereas I merely try to improve the quality of memorials on Find A Grave, some 68,000x so far...
Thank you for your positive feedback.
