Bio and Links
Bio Photo I welcome information or a correction to a memorial. I do not double-check the auto edits, as I don't have time, plus, I think you would have.
I like to link families (and also women's maiden names) as that has sometimes been the only way I found a daughter, wife, or mother.
If you find an error, please notify me; AND, please use the white Edit tab at right top of the memorial, even if you have a question about a memorial, the suggestion email will take me to it. I will know exactly who and what you are writing about without entering names, and memorial numbers to look it up.

I will transfer a memorial if you are a relative, and I'm not related, but I'd expect you to transfer if someone else asks you and they are closer kin.
I honor veterans (all wars) with a flag, or floral tribute, especially if they don't have one.

With the "new edit" method, I don't always write a 'thank-you' nor do I expect one. We all have plenty to do to keep up. BUT, be assured that I do APPRECIATE any addition/correction, or PHOTO REQUEST you fulfill for me. Please accept this as my thanks for your efforts.

Reece L Rainwater
Hello. I see a year ago you left a message on Jim Edgar profile with a question about Reece L. Rainwater that in a book of 1959 you had him listed as a minister. Reece L. Rainwater was my great Uncle. He was a preacher in Arkansas I believe. He and my great Aunt lived in Charleston and Bloomer Arkansas. He was my Dads Uncle Reece. He would be the son of Reason Rainwater the civil war veteran.My Grandfather was also the son of Reason. James Allen Rainwater.Is it possible to get a picture of the book you have with Uncle Reece Rainwater name in it?
my email is
Thank you.

Allen Jackson Birdwell #143736436
Hi there, you recently left some information about Allen Jackson Birdwell. You mention that his name appeared in a roll of Free Will Baptist preachers in 1912 but I've never seen this info. If you wouldn't mind pointing me in the right direction I'd greatly appreciate it!

Thanks so much,
Clayton Hollingsworth (3rd great-grandson of Allen Jackson Birdwell)

Memorial# 30606927 Levi C. Boles, Hi there, I see you left some information for Levi C. Boles, Buried in OK., I am related to him, and you have his parents listed wrong, He was born in Coffee County., AL. and was the son of William F. Boles and Rebecka Cadenhead.,They lived in Henderson County TX., they are in the 1860 Census of Henderson Co. TX., I see where you found a Levi Boles in 1870 census Kaufman County TX. But he is not the right guy,and I am in contact with Levi Boles direct family from where he died. He was in the Civil War though, 20th Texas Cavl. under Capt. Jere Warren, Companies I,E,A, and Capt. Bridges 13th Brigade, Henderson County Texas.
I have Levi's children's names also

I do not have access to this information (death cert.) If you want to send it to me i'll be happy to add.

The information I added was from the death certificate abstract. It shows him as dying in Kings County and having been born there. I'll remove the birth but I believe the death location to be legit.

RE: Smart - Ill. 26168286
I guess it's possible that Wiley Smart married Mary A. Allison in 1854 in Kentucky, but it was a short-lived marriage because he married Hannah Dorsey in 1859 in Illinois and then Arminta Upchurch in 1874 in Illinois. With Hannah, Wiley had 2 daughters by the 1860 census. By 1870, he had 5 more children with Hannah. Then he married Arminta and had 3 children with her by 1880. I only found one child born to Mary A. Allison:

Name: John A Smart

Birth Date: 4 Sep 1855

Birth Place: Crittenden, Kentucky, USA

Ethnicity: White

Gender: Male

Father: Wiley L Smart

Mother: Mary E Allison


Smart - Ill. 26168286
I cited an old 1889 Cyclopedia of Free Baptists with short bios of preachers and have found no errors on ones I've looked for. It gives "Wiley L. Smart, son of John Smart, bn in Wilson Co. TX in 1832; He mar. Mary A. Allison in 1854 and has eight children."

He was in both KY and ILL, at times in church work, but at the last in ILL, it seems. Wonder if her name could be on the side of his or something and canvasser just missed it?
