Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Joy and I am really happy to be a contributing member of findagrave.

I was born in Polk County which is located in East Texas. My parents lived in several areas of Texas while I was growing up, wherever my dad worked. After I graduated school and got married, my husband and I settled along the Gulf Coast of Texas and raised our family, but we make many trips back to visit family in East Texas. We are the parents of three children, two daughters who are living, and we have three grandsons. Our eldest child and only son, James Michael Sizemore, passed away in 1984 after being struck by lightning at age sixteen, so I am especially interested in the memorials on FindAGrave, that honor our loved ones. The biggest joy in our lives these days are our five grandchildren, four boys and one girl. We really enjoy watching the older grandchildren play sports. As you can imagine, we get lots of laughs at the antics of these young players.

I started doing genealogy research in mid 2000 for my family lines which include Duff, Jones, Hawthorne, Cain, Murphy and Coursey; my husband‚s family lines include Sizemore, Driver, Roach, Fletcher and many others I have not been able to pinpoint. I have to say his family lines are much harder to research than mine are. I am trying to gather as much family information as I can so that it will be much easier for my family as well as my extended family to do research on our ancestry.

My goal is to take as many photographs as I can and post them to the findagrave.com website for cemeteries in several East Texas Counties where I have family buried. These counties include Polk, Tyler, Jasper, Newton, Liberty, Harris, San Jacinto, Hardin and Angelina. I firmly believe in remembering our loved ones that have passed on and feel I can help by posting the photos of their headstones, photos, etc.

NOTICE: "ALL HEADSTONE PHOTOS THAT I POST, OR HAVE POSTED, ON THE FINDAGRAVE WEBSITE HAVE BEEN TAKEN PERSONALLY BY ME OR HAVE BEEN COPIED BY PERMISSION FROM OTHER MEMBERS OF FINDAGRAVE."

"ALSO, PLEASE NOTE THAT THE HEADSTONE PHOTOS I POST, OR HAVE POSTED IN THE PAST, ARE THERE AS A MEMORIAL TO THAT PERSON AND ARE AVAILABLE TO BE COPIED BY FAMILY RESEARCHERS WHO ARE TRYING TO TRACK THEIR FAMILY LINEAGE. I would like to be contacted on my personal family photos as I have been in the past by several people."

I will do my best to also take headstone photo requests at cemeteries in the general area that I visit and live near.

I appreciate any corrections or updates to information I have posted as well as I will be glad to transfer a posting to family members when notified.

Thank you to those who have emailed me with family info and requests to link husband, wives and children on posts that I have made in the past. I am really happy that FindAGrave has added this wonderful addition to our recording of memorials.

I ask everyones forgiveness for any delays on making updates or changes to requests. My husband has been battling cancer for the past two and a half years and I've not been able to work on my genealogy or Findagrave work. I will be working more on it in 2017.

This is in regard to the information about James Barclay. I have much information about James Barclay. He is the best known of this pioneer Tyler Co family. Also has some direct double decended relatives right in Woodville who would more logically be the ones to contribute more information.

I do not want to step out of turn, since I am decended from Robert, not James.

James and Virginia had 12 children, only about half or named. He had 10 siblings, only about half are named.

About every 15 years someone gets hot on doing geneology and I expect this will be looked at and it does not say much.

This looks to me like a very nice effort made but if asked to do so, I would be glad to provide much more. I wrote several articles about him in yr 2000.

It would take a couple of hours to work it up and also require some editing and adds and changes on your part that are time consuming also. I think it is well worth it.
