Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have worked in a refugee resettlement center, been a carpenter, rode bulls before I grew a brain, PC tech, a Animatronic Tech (Animation electronics......robots) in the carnival business. Now I work as a inventory control specialist.I grew up in Dallas and now live in Wolfe City, Texas.

I am researching the Familes of Long Creek Cemetery, Sunnyvale, Dallas Co., Tx; the decendants of Hiram Bennett, and the Town of Scyene (now part of Dallas), Texas. I am working on Rylie Cemetery and Lyons Cemetery burial families also. I have recently started a facebook group in a effort to coordinate volunteers in an effort to photograph Grove Hill Memorial Park, Dallas, Texas.

If there is information you want to add or correct for anyone I have entered please contact me with the Suggest Correction option under the Edit tab. Transfers are done according to findagrave guidelines. Photos can be added without transfer and I will make family links and add bios sent to me by "Edit" options. Anyone one wanting to manage any of the IOOF Norman Cemetery memorials I have posted please let me know!
I HAVE FREELY TAKEN AND POSTED PHOTOGRAPHS ON THIS SITE. I do not claim copyright to anything I have posted for use in any noncommercial reason, credit is nice but it is not why I do this!

Robert Edward Wade
His father was Frank B. Wade not Francis Marion Wade. This is incorrect throughout the genealogy records. Do not have any birth or death info on Frank B. Wade but these families have been combined somehow and I saw it in the LDS records as well. Thank you.

Edith May Depree Wilson
Dear Robert,
I know I wrote once before and gave the correct information for my aunt. However, it has been changed but is still wrong.
If her complete name would be listed, it would be Edith Mae Bostick Wilson Dupree. Her maiden name was Bostick and I had asked to have that added for genealogy purposes. Her first husband was Mr. Wilson, and her second husband was Mr. Dupree. Notice that on the gravestone, her middle name is spelled MAE, not May.
I would really appreciate it if this information could be corrected. My father and Aunt Edith had the same mother, Avie Monk.
Thank you.
