Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a native Texan, born in Gainesville, Cooke, County, Texas on 3 March 1945. I enlisted in the U.S. Air Force and served from 1964-1968. I made my living as a mechanical engineer for Bell Helicopter for 41 years and am now enjoying retirement. My interest in genealogy was really kindled when my father died in 1978 and I inherited boxes and boxes of documents.

Thank you Donald for taking the time to get a picture of the headstone. My son in law lost his father in the last year and I am introducing him to some of his genealogy to encourage him in this tough time.

RE: Ollie Mai
I know what you mean. I have a 3x great grandfather, James M. Kelley who married Malinda Jane Baskin and he died during the civil war, but can't find out exact date or where he might have been buried. Malinda remarried her 1st cousin, another John Baskin and they are all buried in Indian Creek Cemetery in Brighton, TN, but can't find exact information about James Kelley or Kelly. I am not getting the information to prove the correct dates and what happened to him. They 2 children and had a son, John A. Baskin buried there also who died in 1877 at the age of 13 years 10 months so I would like to know when James actually died and the James Kelly/Kelley which is the right one. The dates have to be compatible to his birth and Malinda's pregnacy. I just give up on it for awhile and work on something else.

RE: Ollie Mai
Thanks, I also see you on Ton is my grandfather, Ashley Nathaniel Tanner, Sr's brother. They were a large family and it has required lots of work researching the Tanner family. It keeps me busy. Diane

RE: Bonnie Womack
I was actually there back then, but I flew from Los Angeles to attend Herbert Womack's funeral and I haven't been back since, even for Bonnie's funeral. I can't remember exactly, but I have a vague recollection it was near a tree.

They are my grandparents.

After we left the funeral, the Masons came and performed their rites.

My nearest relative lives somewhere near Ft. Worth, though I'd doubt if he had the exact location.

Thanks for looking again.

I'll try to contact someone there again, hopefully, they won't give me the run-around.

The person who posted the memorial does not know where the grave site is either.

RE: Bonnie Womack
Thanks Don - I tried in the past, but even if I say I a relative, in this case, a grandson, they wouldn't do it. When I persisted, they said they would take a photo themselves and give to me, but they never did, I could just tell they did not want to go to the trouble. Her plot should be adjoining her husband's, Herbert E. Womack there. I'm emailing the person who put Herb's memorial to see if they have that information.

Thanks so much again,

Bonnie Womack
Thanks for the photo. Bonnie passed in 2002. It would be nice if someone could take a photo with the new inscription of her death. The cemetery employees always say they will be they never do.
