Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'am just an old retired Cowboy:
If there is anyway i can help someone just let me know, I'am a proud born again Christian who Loves Jesus with all my Heart, am willing to talk to anyone about Him, so if you just need to chat we will sit around the camp fire and Chat away, send me a msg.

"Remember the days of old; consider the generations long past." (Deuteronomy 32:7 "

"Speak the Truth in Love" (Ephesians 4:15)

Each one of us should always remember we are working with people's love and emotion, when dealing with their dearly departed- let's work together in kindness and say a Prayer along the way

Keep these words in mind as you pass thru a cemetery
"Remember me as you pass by, as you are now, so once was I. As I am now, you soon will be, spend well your time with God before it's your time to follow me."

My simple Cowboy Prayer:
Oh Lord, I reckon I'm not much.I fail a lot of things You know I ought to do. but when I make my last ride and get life's final call, my only hope will be, For me to hear You say " COME ON MY CHILD IT'S TIME FOR YOU TO RIDE WITH ME'

Cowboy Wisdom:
When a cowboy takes his last ride in life and his Bible is as worn out as his saddle, then it's been a good ride

Cowboy Wisdom:
A wise cowboy knows that ignoring the evil around you is about like roping a coyote, things can get real ugly fast

Cowboy Wisdom:
Believing in Jesus and fishing are a lot alike, you may not see either but you know in your heart they are there

Cowboy Wisdom:
Being a Christian is like riding down a dirt road in a beat up old pickup truck, Bumpy ride but in the end you get home

Cowboy Wisdom:
Trying to go to Heaven without Jesus is like trying to rope a calf when you don't have a rope

Cowboy Wisdom:
Life without Jesus in your heart is a lot like a cowboy without his horse,it's long walk to nowhere

My cowboy ride
I Rode by today to say a silent prayer for me and not for you, because Your tombstone stands among the rest;The name and date are chiseled out on polished marbled stone, I wonder if you knew that someday I would find this spot... and come to visit you.

Love your Cowboy Wisdom. I am a Texan for several generations on both sides. I always say Cowboys are often the best our country has to offer.

RE: Ada Blance Daniels McCarty
I'm sorry, Richard, I meant to go ahead with the edits I had sent, but do what you want with this information. By the time I sent this, I was so completely muddled that I probably wasn't making much sense. Unless she was living dual lives, there is no way she is one woman, but there is an actual record that uses the married name of the one who married Ollie McCarty with the birth of the child of Perry White. I gave up after that. Maybe one day I'll be able to face it again.

RE: James Chaptreel Mayo
William James Mayo was born in Springfield Green Missouri 29 Jul 1827 and died 18 Apr 1875 in Parker Co. Texas. He went into service during civil war in Denton Co. Texas by what Louisa says in her declaration for pension under his service. By the way she married James Stinnett who served with William in the same unit.
I see you put up a suggestion on my mother White Rose Kilsby. I do not have her name as Lee for personal reasons. I have her death certificate as well. Thank you for the suggestion though. I just want to find more about my Mayo connection. When my grandmother Ida was born she went under her mother Miranda's maiden name. I cannot find a father for her. She was born in Weatherford TX. Oh yes I do not know where William James Mayo was buried.

RE: Pringle
Richard, I did correct the name from Reaves to Reeves on Myrtle's Findagrave memorial. I also added her middle initial. I see no discrepancy on anything else. I feel sure that Lena L Pringle is Lena Lydia Reeves Pringle. Thomas Aaron Pringle's WWI draft card gives his wife's name as Mrs. Liddie Lee (Lena?) Pringle. They were in Thalia, Foard County,Texas at that time (1918). Rayland, Texas is next door to Thalia on the east. Part of Rayland is in Foard County and part is in Wilbarger County . I am an old Foard County girl. So I know my local. Unfortunately Myrtle died in Dec 10, 1919, so won't be on the 1920 census, but I don't remember if the 1920 census gives number of children and number of living children or not. At any rate this family was in Knox county in 1930 which borders Foard county on the south. and WWI draft card shows that Thalia was in Wilbarger county, but it is fact not. Thalia is in Foard County. I believe that Fisher County is down around Abilene.

RE: James Chaptreel Mayo
Well Best I can tell is my 2x great grandfather William James Mayo is buried in Parker Co. TX. His wife was Louisa Jane Culwell. They are the parents of my 1x great Grandmother who was Miranda Mayo King. My grandmother was Ida Elizabeth Mayo and married John Wesley Kilsby. James Chapprel Mayo was a sibling to Miranda Mayo. I have recently found William James Mayo's will. I have Louisa's application for pension from his Civil war service. If you want anymore info I will share anything you want. Thank you for answering me.

Love your picture,
and your message. I am from Texas for 4 and 5 generations on both sides. I think cowboys are some of the very best Americans. Thanks.

Kathy Kitchens
John L. Kitchens, Sr.
Hi Richard, this is Kathy Kitchens, we've spoken in the past. I just wanted to ask you to add one thing to your memorial for my great great grandfather, John L. Kitchens, please. He was first married to Patsey French in Kentucky in 1807, she must have died before he moved to Illinois because he married Mary (Polly) Rottan in 1810. Mary would be the wife of his children. He did name his first daughter after his first wife. You'll notice in the Texas census 1860 or 1870 that Patsey is 24 years younger than Charles. And in his will he names Patsey as his daughter. Thank you so much for all the work you put into Find A Grave. I appreciate it very much as I'm sure many people do. Keep up the good work and perhaps we shall talk again. Kathy
