Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi fellow researchers of your ancestors on this great site, Find A Grave. I really enjoy adding information about my people and anyone else's info they would like to add to the cemeteries that I have canvassed. Genealogy is a great passion of mine and is so rewarding when you find that long lost relative that has been so elusive. I have many of those that I am searching for. I am more than happy to transfer a memorial to a relative, unless they are part of my family.

Sandy, memorial 85316807 for Sue Clemons Case etc.

There are several things wrong with the memorial.

She went by Sue and that is okay on the memorial. Her full name was Carolyn Sue Russell.

She was the daughter of Don Russell and Mary Chapman. She has one sister Kay. Bill Clemons was her step father and his first wife Vonnette is incorrect also.

Steve and Tyson Clemons were her step brothers.

She was cremated and part of her ashes will be buried with her mother Mary Chapman Clemons when she dies. They are buried or will be buried in the Chapman family plots.

Sue married Roger Owen "Rip" Case, my college roommate. I was best man at the wedding. She and Rip have one dau. Carrie and Carrie has one son. They live in Oklahoma.

Both Bill and Mary divorced when their children were little. At marriage, they raised the 4 children together. Mary lives in Comanche. They owned the Clemons Ford Motor company many many years.

Thanks, Merle Stevens

Sandy, My dad worked at the penitentiary at McAlester for several years and my brother was born there. I had 3 unfilled photo request for that cemetery for nearly 3 years. They were near kin and I had to make a trip to Idabel last weekend. I would be going within 40 miles of the cemetery, so I just went there myself. There were 56 photo requests. I alphabetized them and went to every one of the 1,657 graves. It took nearly 3 hours the way I did it. The fire ants are really bad at that cemetery. Their nests get dirt on the edges of the headstones and when you scrape it off to read the stone, they come out by the thousands. I only got bit once though. Charles

Sorry -
Disregard the previous message - I did some more digging after I asked you and I think you are correct. I have amended my records. Thank you for having this on here so that I could correct my files!

How certain are you that these are his parents?
James Alexander Dishman (1820 - 1872)
Isabella G Lackey Dishman (1818 - 1876)

I have another set of parents as do several other researchers:
Burrell Tremont Dishman
Nancy E. (or E.) Upchurch

Thank you - always looking to solve a mystery! :-)

Alice Temple Horton
Hi Sandy - Thanks for posting the memorial to Alice Temple Horton. She was sister to my g-g-grandfather, William Burwell Temple. Their parents were Troy Turner and Judah Temple (See census: Year: 1860; Census Place: Beat 2, Henderson, Texas; Roll: M653_1297; Page: 38; Image: 84). The Henderson County Marriage Book in the courthouse at Athens, TX shows that she married Joseph Horton on 22 Jan. 1874.

I have lots more information on this branch of the Temple Family if you're interested.

Regards, Charley Temple

Inez Lawler
Hi Sandy,

You said if anyone had information on Inez, to let you know. I just found her death certificate under the name of Inez Lawler Price, born 25 Apr 1898, Texas, and died 21 Apr 1979 in Fort Worth, Tarrant, TX. The home address is the same as Thomas' death certificate. According to the DC her parents are Henry Eugene Haden and Lula Dickey.

Ruby Lucille Pratt
Hi Sandy,

My name is Patricia (Tricia) Biswell. I am the daughter of Wynema Lucille Beshear Biswell. I have been curious of my mothers family history & decided to google my grandmothers name & a picture of my grandparents Ruby (Pratt) & Troy Beshear appeared. I am not certain of our relationship but it seems obvious we are related. Interested to learn more...
