Bio and Links
The Davis Cemetery Athens, Texas has been my first documentation project. I have many family members on my husbands side buried there. I enjoy seeing and reading old head-stones. It make me think of how hard times must have been many years ago, and the many losses.

I have worked on own family genelogy and have a little over 3100 on my Family Tree. My sister puts these on Ancestry when she has the time.

If you have any correction or question on any of the sites I have enteried please tell me the name of the cemetery you are referring to, I have done many cemeteries.

Fern McBee, Shelby Chapel
Marie, I created a memorial for her # 179480857 as Fern McBee Baughman, which another contributor has pointed out is a duplicate of your memorial #59417297 for Fern Mcbee.

I wanted to let you know that this entry for Fern McBee Baughman #179480857 is a duplicate for another burial in this cemetery. The earlier memorial is #59417297 for Ottis McBee, who shares a headstone with her mother. Her full name was Ottis Fern McBee...married Frank D. Baughman. They were members of my late husband's family.

I hope you and the person who posted the earlier memorial can combine you valuable information to get as much information as possible into a single memorial.

Marie, you may feel free to use whatever is on my memorial and I'll delete mine.

Family adoption search
I have located my birth grandmother, Ernestine Jewel Davis. I am searching for my grandfather. I am thinking Warren or Rhoades. I am leaning towards Warren J Rhoades as my birth grandfather. But I am not sure. I hope to find family who would be willing to help me look into this. I do not want to upset anyone. It is possible no one other than my grandfather knew of my father's birth. This news could be a shock to other family members. I wish no harm, hurt or ill will. I am looking for my history. Where I come from, who do I look like and or act like. If anyone reading this see's a connection or know's of a connection I hope to make contact.
I am on My email is
Thank you,
Denise Hanna Richter

Albin Ernest Fischer
I have a different birth place for Albin and I am wondering where you got the birth place information. If you can share your source I would be very excited because we have not been able to find the link we need to further our ancestral line. Thank you for your help.

Frances Ann Kennon - checking for burial at Athens
If you have access to the burial records for Athens cemetery would appreciate checking if a record of Frances Ann Kennon the daughter of Ida Mae Robinson Kennon Find A Grave #61734522 can be found. Ida's daughter drown as a teenager in the 50's. A family member thinks 1957 or 1958. She was born April 20, 1940.

My connection is as cousin. Thank you in advance.

J. A. Ware
I am looking for information on J.A. Ware of Meredith Campground, outside of Athens, Texas. He married S Lawrence in Alabama in 1990. I cannot find a burial site for her, I only know of his marriage that you talk about. If you could look into this and see if in the campground there is anyone else that might fit the description of his first wife.
Thank you,

George Glenn
Davis Cemetery - Walter Glenn
Walter is my Grandfather from his first marriage to Leolyn Downey. 3 children from that union, Juana Leolyn, Walter Folsom Jr and William Henry. I am the younger son of William Henry.

Note, that the name listed on the upright marker is incorrect, per his birth records, draft registration (WWI). It should be "Folsom" as a middle name.

I linked his father (Calvin V) and first wife to your record.

Great hard work to keep all of these documented. I salute you

s. Thompson
Hello there! I added a headstone photo for S. Thompson, memorial #68372307. I noticed that the first name on her memorial is showing Sarsh and I was wondering if this should be Sarah instead. The name is missing from her headstone so I don't know for sure. Thanks for checking it out! Mary M.
