Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy indexing cemeteries.

I have indexed the Heards Prairie-Petteway Cemetery in 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: Dorothy Nell Anderson
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.

RE: Dorothy Nell Summersill Anderson
It is an obituary I wrote from my personal research. It was not copied or adapted from any published obituary. I would appreciate you adding it to her memorial bio. Thank you.

Hello Gerrie, I have already requested the transfers, guess I'll just wait. Didn't know if there was anyone else who could help. Hopefully she will transfer soon. Thanks,Kimberly

Gerrie, thank you for the cemetary photo for Karrol L. Karr. He was my father and he recently deceased on November 6,2015. He and my mother Ethel Jean have side by side headstones at Brookside Memorial Park. I have been trying to get the memorials of my mother and father transferred to me. I have contacted Karen. Please let me know if there is any thing else I need to do I think Karen is the one who has to make the transfer. I have a bio I am waiting to put for my father. Please let me know. Respectfully, Kimberly

Wallace (Wally) Statema
Where did you get the information for Wally? I have asked for a photo of his marker and they have reported they come up empty handed in trying to locate his plot and that the cematary does not show he is buried there.

My wife (LaVonne}is Wally's sister and we want to locate his grave site.

Please let me know what you can tell me.

Gerri, please remove Lake L. Black's grave as part of this cemetery. He was my father-in-law and he is buried in our family cemetery, on our land, which is located in Robertson County. I don't know where you got the information that he is buried in another county, but this is incorrect and confusing for our family members who might be searching for him.

Thank you in advance for correcting this.

RE: Lizadel Glass
Thx Gerrie for letting me know about this. My uncle Charles Davidson is buried at Petteway and we attended his funeral. On the way home we stopped at some cemeteries..the car pulls into them without us even trying!!! LOL Anyway I must have gotten this one mixed with Petteway. If you find any others just let me know and I will check on them. Thanks again. Janet
