Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thanks to EVERYONE who has helped add information and links to the memorials in Polk County. Everyone deserves a tribute and hopefully this information will help someone in their research. A special thanks to NOLLENE MARSH (1951-2016) for all the links and information that she has provided.

Please tell us about yourself in the BIO AND LINKS SECTION.
I began researching my family in about 2003. Some of the Surnames are McCraney, Williamson, Lott, Brock, Lakey, Smith, Turner and Jones. I grew up in Polk Co., TX and discovered most of my ancestors came by way of Mississippi or Alabama.

Surnames on my husband's side are Gregorcyk, Hirscy, Walker, Shives and Bluntzer.

Thanks to the people who share their information, I have been able to find an amazing amount on the Internet. The research can become addictive and never ending; there is always more to the story.

It is not my intent to offend anyone. If I have posted information that you want removed…please ask.

Cemetery Trustee
Virginia. I am the trustee for the Oakdale Cemetery Located in the Oakdale Community just north of Livingston. Oakdale Cemetery is listed as being located in Marston which is a mistake. I am not on this site often so I will miss messages for a while. If you decide to contact, the best is via email Thank you. John Wells (Jr)

RE: Willie - #15401150
Good evening, Virginia-

I assure you that I did not add those photos to Find A Grave for Willie. I have never been in Texas (I am in New York) so I assume it was a Find A Grave glitch. I have removed the photos and will be checking to see who they actually belong to. Thanks for bringing my attention to this matter.

I gave full credit to you along with your member # 46839647. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours.

The correction you asked me to do has a mother born in 1938 when Sarah was born in 1828, I'm confused

RE: Jay Raburn 141018735
Thank you for telling me it was a duplicate. Looks like I added the pictures to Mr Clarks so I am not sure how I managed to add it again. Just one of those days I guess.

Rachel Whisenhant Carruthers
Hi. I'm trying to research a bit of a family mystery regarding my great grandfather James C Carruthers, and I see you posted what seems to be Rachel Whisenhant Carruthers' obituary on her page, his (second) wife. I was curious, where did you find the obituary? If they did indeed marry in 1955, then I guess he was technically married to two women at the same time because he never formally divorced my great grandmother when he ran out on her in 1925 and she died in 1957.

American Indian Heritage
I am exploring in my ancestors' lineages by researching both maternal and paternal familial lines of my family heritage to serve as part of proof descending from American Indians (tribes needed). I will calculate the blood percentage for a tribal application. However, I have extremely long lines of relatives that are spread all over the United States. If one genealogist or member has free time to help me in this endeaver, I would kindly appreciate it. There is one caveat: My father and my grandmother share the same surname (but they are supposed to be unrelated). I have had success finding one cousin from the Find-A-Grave Web site obituary and photos that reads how my cousin was 1/4 Choctaw and in the Chactaw Nation. I would love to include American Indian Heritage into the Web site as informative genealogy for those needing quick access to any documentation in the future since much material and proofs are disappearing so fast. I believe that preserving all family documentation found and attained in person is worth keeping.
