I will be taking a much needed break from Find A Grave.
September 16, 2021.
Please be NICE to one another out there!
Note: If you have better or updated photos please put them on my sites. Let me know and I may even remove mine.
Feel free to use any photos or information that you like. My biggest concern is that future generations will miss out if this information is not recorded.
First I would like to thank my parents for sharing and keeping old family photos. My mother was always very protective of her photos and that was a good thing because they are still around today. I have been rather frustrated in trying to organize and share family photos, then Find A Grave came along. I found this to be an excellent place to organize, share, and obtain feedback on family photos, and hopefully it will allow other family members to identify some of their unknown photos. I would like to thank my brother Stephen for scanning hundreds of these photos. On my dad's side of the family I would like to thank all of those that shared information and helped identify pictures over the years. My Aunt Phil Bourg; First Cousins, Bill de Valcourt, Jimmy de Valcourt and Doris Elmer Coon; Also Ralph Russell Dailey III; Gloria de Valcourt and her husband Steven Marcotte, Pat Marcotte, Vic Jeter, a href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=barry&GSfn=rupert&GSbyrel=all&GSdyrel=all&GSst=46&GScntry=4&GSob=n&GRid=43602765&df=all&" Mr. Rupert J. Barry/a, Mrs. Edwin A. Smith, a href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=117435732" Mrs. Mathilda Smith Lavergne/a etc, etc.
On my mother's side of the family I have to thank my Grand Mother Leattie Eugenia Robinson Davis, her sister Agnes Robinson Schroeder, her nieces Joann Robinson Moses, Sibyl Robinson Cavell, and a href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=106305354" Ruby Agnes "Sis" Ross/a along with Sybil Wilson. etc. etc.
In Sabine Parish, LA I would like to thank the Daughters of the American Revolution, Carl Dilbeck, The Sabine Index, Warren Meadows Funeral Home and all of the others that have made this project possible.
I have quite a few family photos that my parents and family members have taken and collected over the years. They cherished, shared and took care of them for many decades. They are no longer able to do this so I guess it is my turn to do the sharing. I like to see pictures of my relatives that are no longer with us and I believe others like to see them also.
