Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for about 40 years. I was a member of the team that read all cemeteries in Parker County, Texas, and publised a 4 volume set for the Parker County Genealogy Society. I appreciate all the hard work and to those adding information on Find A Grave site. I will transfer management of any of my added graves that are not my direct family. Send me your info and I will add additional info to my direct line.
As a recent new member on the Find A Grave site, I thank those of you who have helped me and ask that you forgive me if I make mistakes, either typos or not knowing all the guidelines. Please contact me and I will correct them. My goal is to add my family members, very close friends and to help other people find their loved ones graves as I have done.

Frances P. Johnson Gahagan
Thank you for adding the obituary for Mrs. Gahagan. Her first husband was Roscoe Cawyer, and I have been trying to link his family with him forever. Posting the obituary enabled me to confirm that "Fanny" was his wife, and the mother of several of the children named in her obituary. With great appreciation.

Another note...Martha Ann was the daughter of Alexander Culbertson and Elizabeth Johnson. John was Alexander's brother and is my line, he married an Elizabeth also but maiden name unknown.

Thanks so much for the bio on Martha A Culbertson Baker. She is only 1st cousin 4 x removed from me, but have been trying to find her. Another researcher told me she married Squire Baker and he may have been called that but is D A on the census in 1880.

Hi, Jim Taylor told me to contact you. He said we might be related or at least connected. Are you a Taylor or Lyles or in an associated family with Jim?

Sadie Swafford
I never personally knew any of the Swaffords. Her grave was one we found and the poem on the headstone caught my fancy, so I put her on Find A Grave. The old hourse and grave are away out in the mountains of Arizona. I had heard the Swafford name, but all I knew about them is what I researched. Sorry I can't tell you more.
