My ancestry interests on my Dad's family are Germans: Bonorden and Knipling; on my Mom's family are Edwards and Vinson. My husbands family are Jentsch's, Kneuppers, Scheefs and Ruetters (all German families).
I also keep the Gause Cemetery roster, virtually and otherwise as a part of the Gause Cemetery Association and caretaker. Any information about anyone buried there is greatly appreciated. I also keep a Ancestry tree for the cemetery to trace the families buried there and to discover the names of those buried without marked and named gravestones.
One of my goals is to 'connect' all the 'residents' of the Gause and surrounding cemeteries to their families buried there and elsewhere. I appreciate all the help I get from other FAG members with the connections and corrections, thank you!
Currently working on cemeteries in Milam, Burleson and Robertson Counties. I am also working on a cemetery project for all cemeteries in Milam County for the Texas Historical Commission Atlas and the Milam County Historical Commission.
** I believe that those that have gone on, deserve to be known. This isn't about 'me' but about 'them'. All pictures are given freely to anyone to use but photo credit would be polite and greatly appreciated. Thanks!
I live in Southeastern Milam County near Gause, TX. I am happy to help with any cemetery locations near me.

You was here but now You've gone,
You've left your name to carry on,
Written in stone or just pages in time;
There is no real death until you are forgotten,
So let those that read this remember you often.
***Forget You Not******
I am with you still - I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the sweet uplifting rush,
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone -
I am with you still in each new dawn.
