Bio Photo Remember the Past ~ Imagine the Future

Volunteer: by definition means "a person who performs a service willingly and without pay." That is what its all about here on Find A Grave; volunteers giving freely of their time and resources. Yes, some have more time than others; more time to add more names, find more info and do more research, but that does not diminish the importance of the contributor who only has time to add just basic names. Sometimes its the smallest clue that brings the biggest results.

PLEASE try to remember because we are dedicated "Gravers" we have stomped through mud puddles, walked for miles, swatted mosquitoes, got stung by fire ants, stood out in 105 degree summer sun and/or froze our rear off on a cold & frosty winter morning - all to get that perfect photo (at our time & expense) others have requested from some remote cemetery out in the "boonies". So please, instead of complaining to us that we misspelled your loved ones name on the memorial pg we made for them (we are human, we all make mistakes, and we are more than happy to correct our typos), please consider how wonderful it would be for us to hear an occasional "thank you for your efforts."

Me, I volunteer in any area where I have the resource material to do so. My primary interest is in Angelina, Llano, Mason, Milam & Williamson counties but I'll research any that I can.

NOTICE: I prefer not to link to "UNKNOWN" BURIALS. Let's discuss it before linking, please.
***********************************
* NOTE: Per the Find A Grave guidelines, I do not post photos which I did not take, or have personal ownership of, or permission to use - that means newspaper obit photos. IF I post an obit photo in the future it means I knew the person or family.(updated Oct 2012)

About Find A Grave: if you are new to Find A Grave (1) PLEASE read the FAQ section BEFORE you start asking for transfers or sending suggestions, corrections, additions, comments, etc. And when you do send your comments/requests (2) PLEASE use the "edit" tab found on each memorial pg to send your msg. Use of the edit tab takes us straight to the name in question and cuts down on mistakes. And (3) Unless I know you and know your work, PLEASE state the source (or reason) for the change/addition in the info (death certificate, obit, census, family Bible, personal knowledge, etc) I know I sometimes forget to add these to my SAC's, so if you need to know where I got my info, just ask me (for me, most will be from TXDC's or the census)

ABOUT MY PERSONAL FAMILY PHOTOS: you DO NOT have permission to take/use any of my personal family photos, period! (unless I personally tell you its ok) If you have interest in any of my personal family lines, contact me, tell me who you are and what your interest in my family names is.

ABOUT THE TOMBSTONE PHOTOS I ADD: if they are your family and you wish to add them to your family trees, yes you may do so, BUT remember to give credit where credit is due and note that you found it on Find A Grave "courtesy of Deb in Angelina Co". On the other hand, you DO NOT have permission to take & re-post my photos from other websites, or those here on Find A Grave, under your name as if you were the photographer. Whether good, bad, old, or new, I recognize my own photos. It's not about "owning", it's about giving another person the credit for the effort they went to, to gather & post data for the benefit of those who are searching for family. Thank you!

Names of personal interest to me (for one reason or another) are too many to list, but my main line of research interests are in surnames: Alvis, Baugh, Collins, Coursey, Leslie, Hammond, Mankins, Moore, Mott, Murphy, Roberts, Secrest, Sharp, and numerous names associated with those families.

Other surnames of interest are: Camp, Broomfield, Gallion, Kendrick, Keith, Pitts, Martin, Sunday, Tull/Tullos and those associated with them.

Charles Henry Quentin
Hi Deb,
Charles Henry Quentin (b. 1910, d. 1975) buried in Shiloh Cemetery, Texas, was my father. His mother's name was Nellie Agnes Carr (not Corr). Also, where did his father's name come from (my grandfather)? I always thought it was Charles Henry or Henry Charles Quentin.
Martha Elizabeth Quentin Dench was my father's sister. I can absolutely confirm that.

I appreciate your volunteering efforts! Thanks!

Your question RE: Ruth Marie Winn
In response to your question on Ruth Marie Winn's Memorial (#110856450), she is the daughter of Alva Burnett Wood and Cecil Ida Gulledge. I sent edits to add her maiden name and place of birth.

Please let me know if you need any further information.

Best,
Debbie

RE: Joseph J. Weidner
Thanks Deb, I was simply trying to help other family members that have linked their ancestry to Fredericke Glenewinkle Weidner, Friedrich Weidner's third wife. There is no question as to who Joseph's mother was it's well recorded and was published in Minnie Weidner Rosenberg's history of the Weidner Family back in 1990. Thanks for at least referencing the memorial number so others can check it out.

I don't know what "board" you mean?

I looked at what you have done on Noah and G.W. sites and it is wonderful. I'm kinda new at searching very deep. I am in awe of what you have found. I see that Noah signed the death certificate.

I'm sitting here stunned. WOW!

RE: GW Reeves, Jr
This is all I have been able to find on Noah's father. The family bible has his birth year as 1850, but census data is conflicting.
I found him with Noah in the 1910 census, but I can't find him anywhere in 1920.
Below is what I have on my Ancestry Tree. You have been so wonderful about Noah's information, I almost hate to ask if you would let me know if you find anything about his father. But, of course, I will. That is what we "seekers of the past do", huh?

George Washington Reeves Jr
18501924
BIRTH 10 SEP 1850 (OR 1841?) Alabama
DEATH 20 DEC 1924 Fannin County, Texas
Thanks,
Mary

I have make the changes that you ask for, It looks like the male children changed the spelling of Muckleroy to Muckelroy. Muckleroy is a part of my husband's family.

thanks Shirley Myers Kerr

Is it possible for you to e-mail me a copy of GW Reeves' death certificate? I don't have that.

GW Reeves
I know next-to-nothing about him. I am trying to work on this part of my family tree, but I don't seem to get anywhere. If other members of my "family search group" have anything, I will up-date you.
Thank you again.
