Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am very interested in Fort Bend County cemeteries and restoring and re-dedicating Concord Cemetery in Kenney, Tx. Family names include McNutt, Joerger, Sullivan, Caywood, Bush, Kennedy, Wood, Lennon, Walsh and Luhn. I work as hard as I can to preserve my family history for generations to come. I have others in my family who have traced our family roots for generations, now it is my turn to help.

A special thanks to my Aunt Gaye McNutt for the pictures of our relatives. Many people collected them, but she compiled them onto a CD for me!! :)

Many we love have passed away too soon...without reason.
We remember them often in a thousand different ways...In the morning...In the night...When we look at the stars...A date...A song...A place...A smell...

We live as long as we are remembered...Old Proverb

Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.

Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.

Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.

Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.

Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.

Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.

Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

Leddon headstone location
I was contacted by the great-great grandson of the Leddons buried at Concord in Kenney. You had taken a photo of the stone, which had some damage on the top, in 2011. However, we could not locate the stone. Do you remember where in the cemetery it was located. From the photo you posted, it seems to be near the edge, but that may just be my interpretation.

McNutt Cemetery
Hi My name is Wayne Ware and I'm on the Williamson County Historical Commission - We (john Christeson and I) have been working on that cemetery for a LONG time (cleaning and fixing tomb stones) - we have been working with Jan for the last few months - we have all ways wanted to also put up a fence but didn't have the means - I got the commission to set aside a $1,000.00 to help and Jan said she and her Father would help and they put up the fence and weed block -- now it looks great thanks to Jan and her husband her Father

Concord Cemetery and Stones

I stopped by the cemetery today since it was cool and much of the overgrowth has died back. I am a certified gravestone conservator and monumental mason and live in Brenham. My grandparents and great grandparents lived at Kenney and my maternal side of the family were early residents of Austin County (1840's). I remember the McNutt home that sat facing the tracks on the hill with the two, huge magnolia trees in front of it.

If you need any help with the gravestones (resetting, repairing broken stones, and general conservation), please let me know.

Hi. I am the great great grandaughter of Timothy and Ann (Lennon) Walsh. I have been working on for the last several years and have quite a bit of info, but it starts getting sketchy when I get further out (grandparents of Timothy, etc.) Do you have a link to any of your Walsh findings? If you are interested, I can send you a link to my Ancestry tree as well. Thanks, Linda (Hoke) Miller, grandaugher to Sarah McAvoy, grandaughter to Ann Lennon.

Widow McNutt
Hello DeDe,

Do you know where Joseph McNutt II and his wife lived in Tennessee?

I am looking for information regarding the McCutcheon Trace, which was one of the primary pioneer trails of the late 18th and early 19th Centuries in Middle Tennessee. Somewhere in the vicinity of Nashville, possibly at the fort itself, the trail started; and it supposedly went into Alabama.

The description of the trail, given in 1876 by TN statesman James McCallum, says the trail went by Widow McNutt's, but does not give any other detail (dates, location, first name, etc.) There were McNutt family member living in the vicinity of Globe Creek and Fountain Creek of Marshall, Giles and Maury counties, where today we find the communities of Culleoka, Bear Creek and Mooresville.

Thanks for any leads.

James Greer #33660304
I noticed your flowers left at this memorial. James was brother to Jane Greer Young and Rachel Greer Sheridan, sisters. Jane was married to Thomas Young, my Great Grand Uncle. I am seeking any information you might have about this family, but especially if you know the ancestral home in Ireland. Thanks for any help you might be able to offer.

What beautiful photos you've taken of the headstones for John H Collins and for Sarah Lue Cochran in the Montgomery Cemetery in Austin County, Texas!
John and Sarah are both distant relatives of my dear friend, John W Taylor.
