Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Salt Lake City, Utah. Daniel Carlyle Ahern and I married in 1971 and he passed away in 1986. We had three children. I now live in Texas and have remarried. I have four living children and six grandchildren.

I started realizing how neglected some cemeteries were when I began exploring Texas. I didn't realize until I found this site that there was something I could do to help preserve some of the memorials. I took a few pictures at a local cemetery and posted them on Find a grave. When I went back two weeks later, something (or someone) had knocked over the memorials. I was so glad that I had taken the pictures and posted them on Find A Grave. If you find any errors on the data that I have added, please let me know. I only add information to help others further identify the individuals.

RE: John Heath
Hi Marian,

This is the obituary from the Texas Christian Advocate, July 7, 1898. I can also email you a scan of the obituary if you'd like.

John Oswell Heath, son of Ephraim and Sallie Heath, was born in the state of Kentucky January 30, 1818; removed to Texas in 1846, where, at the home of his son, Judge E. C. Heath, in Rockwall, he died December 29, 1897, aged seventy-nine years, ten months and twenty-nine days; was four times married and the father of ten children, five of whom, with the present widow, survive him. It is not possible in so brief a memoir as appears in the Advocate to cleverly outline Father Heath's life, less speak those words so richly merited. It was his by gracious Providence to live in a time when the world's best and largest history has been made. In his humble sphere he bore his part in that history, as these facts may testify. Commissioned a postmaster under Franklin Pierce's administration, he was among the first who put a key into a United States mail pouch in North Texas; was ranking militia officer for all North Texas; leaves to his children civil and military commissions bearing the signatures of J. Pinckney Henderson, E. M. Pease, Sam Houston and others; enlisted in the Confederate Army in 1862; made a good record and at the close of war held the commission of First Lieutenant; was at his death the oldest Methodist in Rockwell Church, his name being No. 1 on the roll; had been a member at and near that place half a century; much of this time he had been a steward. After commending the aged widow and dear, bereaved children to the God of all grace and consolation, I will append the following from the pen of Rev. M. H. Neely, D. D. It speaks for itself.
D. F. Fuller

"When I was appointed to the Terrell District at the last conference my first thought was of meeting many of my old-time friends, and among them John O. Heath, of Rockwall; but before I reached that place the Master had called him home. In the fall of 1857 I was sent to the Rockwall Circuit, and among the first to meet me with a hearty welcome J. O. Heath, one of the stewards. During my stay on that work I found him always true and faithful. I learned to love him then, and during the years that have elapsed have frequently met him and found him still the same faithful man of God. Judge E. C. Heath, a worthy son of a worthy father, told me on my recent visit to Rockwall that his father often asked when I would get there, and seemed to be anxious to live until the time of my appointment, but God willed otherwise. A good and true man was he. God bless the survivors of his family."

You are very welcome, I am hoping the camera photos are better, there was tree shadow I couldn't avoid. If so I'll switch them out . Best Wishes, Connie and Wayne
