Bio and Links
Bio Photo

I have indexed the Heards Prairie-Petteway Cemetery in Bremond, Robertson Co., Texas. This is our family cemetery. I am the historian for this cemetery. Any updates, obituaries, and or corrections would be appreciated.

I have newspaper articles for the Franklin News Weekly from 1970 to present and The Bremond Press from 1997 to present.

I am trying to catalog the obituaries by the cemetery. If you have any obituaries before 1970, please let me know.

Please do not ask me to transfer a memorial if it doesn't fall within the FOUR GENERATION GUIDELINE. I am not transferring any of the families from the cemetery at the moment.

The family lines that I am looking for are:
Jones, Johnson, Jenkins, Joyce, Brantner, Brown, Yates, Ahern, Dickens, Bailey, Martin to name a few.

Thank you,

Re: Albert Thomas White # 168833059
Gerrie, this is the Find-a-Grave Memorial that I made for Albert Thomas White and I did not put the information that appears under the picture of the cemetery entrance and over your name. I don't think! But I don't know who did. I am requesting the picture of the headstone and we will see what happens. Joanne

Re: Albert Thomas White, Sr. # 168833059
I went back to check and above your name is a sentence requesting no pictures of cemetery of the page. When I clicked on it, it said it would remove the picture you took of the cemetery entrance. I did not click to removed it. I've never seen that notation on a page before. It also said any pictures of headstones would remain. Something new I guess. Joanne

Re: Albert Thomas White, Sr. # 168833059
Hello, Albert Thomas White Sr. is my second cousin. His grandfather Albert was my grandfather's brother, Ralph Isaac White. I see on Albert Thomas White, Sr.'s memorial you asked that no picture of his stone be posted. Was this because his wife, Lora Bell Burlingame White had not passed at that time? Are you willing to post a picture now? My mother was not very good at keeping in touch with her family other than her sisters. My Aunt Gail, however, seemed to be better about it. I have posted some pictures of John Howard White and family on my tree which Aunt Gail had in her collection. Joanne Paisley

Gerrie, I found a reference for Dorothy Anderson's obituary as having been published in The Eagle; Bryan-College Station, TX; December 2, 2000. I can't access it without a paid subscription.

RE: Dorothy Nell Summersill Anderson
Correction: I did find a copy of Dorothy Anderson's obituary posted online on There was a notation on the page, "Texas Obituary and Death Notice Archive I; Texas Obituary and Death Notice Archive - Page 1422; Posted By: GenLookups; Date: Sunday, 16 September 2012." The obituary I sent was adapted from the original obituary for clarity and added some additional information regarding her education and twin sister.
