Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in North Central Texas. My roots go back to Ireland, Germany, France and other countries I'm unsure of. They arrived in Texas via Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee with names like Brown, Chastain, Brooks, Brooke, Moore and Timmons.

Woe unto thee who posteth memorials to those who still liveth. Thou maketh it plain that thou art after numbers. This causeth much confusion besides being against Find A Grave policy.

Feel free to use my pictures, etc. on other websites, but please, have the courtesy and scruples to give me credit for them.

PLEASE do not post pictures of death certificates or newspaper clippings of obituaries on any of my memorials. Other pictures are welcome as long as they pertain to the subject person and are NOT PICTURES OF DOCUMENTS. If you wish to add obituary information, send it to me through "Suggest a Correction".

RE: Memorial #: 133673540
Thanks. The edit should clear some misinformation for other visitors. My wife and I are to visit Palo Pinto, Texas this Summer, in an effort to find more info on F.G.'s father -and mother. They divorced when he was 15 and left little in terms of a "trail."

Thanks again.

F.G. Boggus is my grandfather. His name was Not Franklin Garfield --it was simply F.G. The nickname "Framk" came into play when he went to work for Cabot Carbon Co. and the company would not allow initials only names. His Social Security card (and other documents) reflect only "F.G." Franklin Garfield Boggus was F.G.'s Father.

RE: William Crawford Brooks
I had just noticed that your grand father's siblings spelled their names with an "e" rather than an "a". However I can understand, that if it
is Brooks on the head stone, why you would want to keep it that way.

I appreciate your quick response. Thank you very much and God Bless!

Could you tell me how to get access to the Finis Cemetery. I'd like to search for the grave of my great, great granddad, Captain John C. Brown. I have a record that he died in Finis, TX in 1887 but I think it could be 1897. Maybe he's buried there.

Placed memorials for William and Annie. The parents of Josiah (by DNA) if you wish to connect him to them.

Memorial #172454009
Memorial #172454009 for Marsha Lynn Shaffer Reid was created by a family member on Nov 08, 2016. A second memorial, #175680280, was created four days ago by someone unknown to the family. You added a photo to this memorial. This second memorial also contains several inaccuracies, not the least of which is that Marsha was buried in the Cottonwood Cemetery in Dublin, Texas. She was not. She was cremated and her ashes given to her eldest daughter. I tried to send a message to the creator of this second memorial, a Michauel Bryan, and ask him to have the memorial he created deleted but he has messaging disabled in Find A Grave. Would you please delete his memorial #175680280? He is not a family member or friend of the family and the many inaccuracies in his unwanted memorial are greatly upsetting to Marsha's surviving family and friends. Thank you.

Thank you for your note regarding this memorial. I cannot fulfill your request to remove Clarence P Gowens as one of Herman's siblings. To request that this be removed you should request that change from whomever is in charge of Clarence's memorial. I would also suggest that when making requests that you add a way to contact you other than having to leave a message on this forum. Sorry I couldn't help but thanks for all you do. Have a great day.

Please excuse my oversight of the previous memorial. I have added the photo to the prev. memorial and deleted mine.

I truly appreciate all of your efforts, and I will try to be more careful in the future.
