Tombstone Tuesday – Knucklehead’s Ancestors

Posted on by 1 comment

I just love that Knucklehead (AKA Michael, my son) loves to go to the cemeteries with me.  In fact, last week he and my older son Justin went to a cemetery just down the road all by themselves and got pictures for me for Find A Grave.  I was a happy camper!

Somehow, all the subliminal messages I send out about genealogy must be taking root.

I just hope they don’t show up with tinfoil hats on and ruin my parade!

Any who, back to the matter at hand.

Last Fall Knucklehead and I went to Texarkana and I took him to see some of his ancestor’s resting spots.

Here he is, with two different sets of his ancestor’s headstones, who were all in Sylverino Cemetery in Texarkana, Arkansas.

The first is Rufus Francis Higginbotham Sr. and his wife Margaret Jacobs Higginbotham.  Rufus served in the Civil War for the CSA.

The second is with William Lynn Davis, and Sarah “Sallie” Robertson Davis.

I’m so glad that he likes to do this with me!

Tombstone Tuesday – John Thomas Davis

John Thomas Davis - my 3rd Great-Grandfather.  I wish I knew more about him.  I got his photo from Billy Boykin, my 2nd cousin 1 time removed.  I love having photos of my ancestors, it’s such a treasure to be able to put a face with a name.
