Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Fabens, Texas and have lived in both New Mexico and Arizona all my life. I have had so many hobbies and interests that I can't begin to tell you which one I've enjoyed the most. Horses were a great love because they could carry me to the tops of high mountains. I spent 15 years teaching 4H classes where I worked with young children. I was a rockhound, a saddle maker specializing in ladies sidesaddles, a gardener, avid hunter. I always loved photography and got my first camera at 6 yeas old. I love old cemeteries and lone graves and research. I enjoy southwest history. I used to go to reenactments. Well to make the story short, I love life. My parents always told me that a busy mind was a happy mind. Mine has certainly been happy.

Your Ed E. COLEMAN #130082151 is buried in Pearsall, Frio County, TX #103258327.

He was Edward Evans COLEMAN. It would be great if you could coordinate with the other memorial, since you have such great additional information.

Hi, I sent you a message via the Suggestion Tab about a month ago, advising that you had created a duplicate of one of my memorials. If you delete yours I will transfer mine to you if you like. I cannot delete mine as it was a transfer. Thanks Lynne

Sources For Bio
Hi, Nancy. You wrote the bio for my great-grandfather and you mention that he was in the Texas Rangers. Can you tell me or point me to a website with that information? You also mention that he was employed by the U.S. Shipping Board, Emergency Fleet Corporation, in Houston, can you share with me that info too?

His name: George Thomas Hamrick #28519538

Next visit to Reserve
Dear Nancy, THANKS AGAIN for your replies and assistance with details and directions! Wonderful to hear back from you so quickly :) Hoping sometime later in Oct to trek back over to Reserve from just over the AZ state line from your location. Would be great fun to meet you and your daughter! Hopefully, you also received my email and now have my email address if you wish to contact me directly should you be up for and available for a visit. I am fairly new to FindAGrave and am hoping also to be around to research other area cemeteries as noted there are requests for the Alpine Cemetery which should be within my trip visits. Blessings back to you with THANKS!! Lita :)

RE: Grave of Johnny S Serna (Jun. 5, 1941 - Sep. 19, 2003)
Dear Nancy, you are my heroine for all you have accomplished with FindAGrave! Thank you so very much for your reply, info and followup! We visited Reserve last wkend (Do you live in the area?) and found the 7th Day Adventist Cemetery and figured we did not drive farther enough down the road to find St Francis, am I correct? Just wondered if it is on a paved or dirt road? THANK YOU AGAIN FOR YOUR AMAZING CONTRIBUTIONS!! Happy birthday EVERY DAY at 94! AWESOME :) Lita

Grave of Johnny S Serna (Jun. 5, 1941 - Sep. 19, 2003)
Hi Nancy, there is a photo request for this grave at the Reserve NM cemetery of St Francis. Since you have recorded most of those from that cemetery would you be able tell me anything about this one? I may be in that area later this month and would be happyy to take a photo but did not want to spend hours looking for it if you think you have already covered this cemetery completed, and this grave might not be marked? Thanks much, Lita 24 Sep 16

Levi Davis
Levi was a brother of my grandfather, James Robert Davis.

The description of Levi's life on the memorial page is accurate except for his death.

Levi was one of a single company of Rangers (10 privates, one sergeant, one captain) stationed in San Benito tasked with controlling all the banditry, other crime, and violence spilling over from the Mexican Revolution occurring just across the border. The Rangers were in conditions not all that different from our soldiers in modern day guerrilla conflicts. I am convinced he suffered from what we would now call PTSD.

At one point, Levi was an undercover agent involved in breaking up gambling rings in Galveston. I suspect the futility of his efforts in the face of political opposition and his worsening mental problems led to his resignation.

A couple of years ago just before he died, an uncle recalled Levi visiting my grandfather from time to time. He couldn't bear sleeping inside and slept in the barn or under the stars. He was committed to the mental institution in San Antonio multiple times but "would be back home before the person who took him."

In November of 1920, Levi was found with his throat slashed in a field outside Marion, about 20 miles east of San Antonio. My uncle recalled him being buried by a creek not far from a church but he was a small child and his memory wasn't too reliable.

I have found no death certificate and no records of whether his death was suicide or murder.

The Texas Ranger Museum also has his death year as 1940 and may be the source of the erroneous information.

Taylor/Newsome Family
I was looking at my grandmother's listing (Leta Belle Taylor Huebner) on Find-A-Grave and saw your name. I have submitted many listings also and thought perhaps I had entered my name incorrectly on this one. You see, my name is Nancy H. Brown! I was reading some of the comments people had left on your page, and noticed one mentioned the work you had done on the Taylor and Newsome families. I would be most interested to learn what you've found. George Washington Taylor and Temperance Ann Newsome Taylor are my gr-gr-grandparents. I have just recently located their burial place on the old family farm in Colorado County, TX.I am trying to trace their families back in GA and SC, but haven't yielded much except a likely sibling to Temperance, which would give me her father's name as Amos Taylor. I have the Taylor family Bible, hence all of the children's names. I'd love to know what you've found!

Susan and Annie and Richard
Hi. I went to the whitfield county library yesterday and found nothing. However, I used my local library's ancestry, and found susan in tthecity's directories from 1881 to 1890. Annie gamble was there in 1884 and 1888, and Mrs Annie k burns in 1894. I can't find the burns children's father anywhere. Almost all of their stuff says they were born in ten. Wonder if Annie went to Alabama with their father (what do you have that has Richard on it?) and came to her mom to have help with delivery?
