Bio Photo Note relating to Fannin County, Texas cemeteries: they have a very nice website that may immediately offer the photo you are looking for. I am trying to get them to transfer these to FindAGrave website. Find it here:

Please have compassion for others and if you cannot reply in a positive way, then don't reply at all.

My husband lost his battle with esophageal cancer Nov. 2014, his memorial # 139923728.

We are all fighting our own private battles and don't need the negativity. If I don't thank you promptly, please don't be harsh. I always thank volunteers as soon as I can.

Please be kind in your messages to everyone on the site.

I will put in a blanket THANK YOU here for all who do my edits/corrections; I submit too many edits and corrections to open and reply to each one, but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate your time and effort in doing them.

I am a member of Ancestory.com and have had my DNA analysis completed, which connected me to many, many relatives, both close and distant cousins, and many I have made connections with. It also enabled me to find additional relatives on my tree because we are linked by our DNA. My personal heritage shows Great Britain and Ireland as my distinct lineages.

** From Wichita, Manhattan, and Wamego, Kansas, living in Dallas, TX area (Garland, Sachse, Caddo Mills, Celeste) since 1982. My paternal ancestors came from Ireland (Conley/Etchison/Loy/Grimes) and my maternal ancestors from Switzerland/Germany/England (Shoup/Brandon/Elledge/Boone) who migrated to Kentucky/Tennessee then to Kansas. Daniel Boone is connected in both my maternal Brandon (Edward 'Neddie') and also my paternal Conley line (Daniel & Edward's brother George W), and there is also a Lincoln connection I am sorting out because they all lived near to each other.

My husband's paternal ancestors (Siebert, Schmidt) were Russian Mennonites from Karolswalde region, Russia who migrated to Pawnee Rock, Kansas in 1875 to avoid religious persecution and brought with them the Turkey Red Winter Wheat to the U.S. His maternal ancestors immigrated from France (Breault, LeBlanc) to Kankakee, Illinois, then to Clyde-Clifton, Kansas, a French community.

Military connections: my father, a Purple Heart veteran injured in battle at Saipan, Northern Marianas, but back to battle a week later, was a Marine, 2nd Div., Pacific, in WWII in the Special Services/Intelligence team and was at all the island battles;
his father was in Army in WWI;
my brother in law, Timothy Siebert, was in Army, Ft. Campbell, KY, 101st Airborne, Desert Storm and Desert Shield.

Henry Kay Hord edit
Thank you for your recent edit regarding the birth place of Henry Kay Hord. I had to reject this edit because Taylorville, IL is in Christian County not Clay County. I am open to any further comments you have regarding your edit.

You're so welcome. I happened upon the cemetery by accident. It is definitely off the beaten path. It was fun!

LARKIN CRAIG MYLER
HIS MILITARY RECORDS, DO record that he was born in 1837 on Valentine's Day. Other records agree. That's why I corrected it. I am his great granddaughter. He was married 4 times. 1) Mellisa Ann Riley. 2)Clorinda "Clarky" Ann Johnson; 3) Mariah 'Maria' E. Grist. Larkin wrote Monah Grise/t" on one of his Pension Requests. Not clear what was intended. Sad story about Mariah. Here is an excerpt
from his OBIT: "He was married four times. His first wife was Miss Melissa Riley - an own cousin of James Whitcomb Riley. To them was born one daughter who still lives - Mrs. Anna (Henry) Hunt of Kansas City, Missouri. His wife died before the out break of the war. The people who cared for the baby daughter through her father's service, concealed from her, her identity and she was reported to her father as having died! Through a singular stroke of good fortune, father and daughter were reunited about the time of her marriage.

The John Emerson Myler, Larkin's son, is my grandfather.

Virginia Lee Myler, now Cooper. I welcome any comments or questions. jinnylee@earthlink.net
