Bio and Links
Bio Photo My mom has been doing family genealogy since the early 70's and her stories about the families have always been interesting. Now, together we are still searching and enjoying our new finds.

I have mapped three cemeteries, Blackwell, Nolan, Texas, SHep, Taylor, Texas and one of which I added to find-a-grave Fort Chadbourne Town Cemetery (not the same as the Fort Cemetery). I got some information from family members of the original caretakers and they have found more graves and have cleaned it up!

My wonderful husband is very supportive of all the time I spend doing what I enjoy, and gets involved in helping to get what pictures and information I need.

I sent an edit for this memorial 65295267 thinking that the name may be misspelled. However, I do see another burial at Shep with the name spelled as you have it on the memorial. Disregard the edit if the spelling on the stone is incorrect.

Best wishes,

Westminster photo request
This cemetery is not very friendly to helping locate grave plots. Please call them at 714-893-2421
to request the grave location. Once you obtain the location, please contact me and I will be able to get a photo of the marker for you ASAP. Thank you for your help. Duke

Many NC and SC names
Gale, I could not get the email to go through direct, but I did so want you to know how much I appreciate what you are doing to help others through your work with Find A Grave. Thank you so very much. It means so much to people like me, who, because of health and age can no longer visit cemeteries. I have been working on my genealogy since the 80's and am still trying so hard to get it all on Family Tree Maker and Ancestry and get it all verified so that my descendants and those who are connected can see their family heritage. You are so fortunate that your husband is able to help you. My husband passed away in 1987 so I know what a blessing it is to have your help. I hope you won't mind my using copies of your photos for my family files.
Thank you. May God bless you in all you do to help others through Find A Grave.

Kittie Wilson

Do you have any idea where in the Buffalo Gap Cemetery Miss Kittie might be buried? We walked the entire cemetery and could not find her grave.

RE: Velria Marie Gipson
I just sent Gipson photos to - I hope this is still a valid email address for you. If you don't find it in your inbox, you might want to check your spam folder. I look forward to a reply email from you.

RE: Velria Marie Gipson
I had already taken the one of the full marker but did not post it since it appears he is still living; I didn't want to compromise his privacy. You are welcome to copy the photos for your personal genealogy purposes.
