Thanks, Gary. It looks like you put the update I gave you on my grandpa's descendants in your computer. You forgot to correct his death information. He died 20 Sept 1988. He died in Phoenix, Maricopa County, AZ. He is buried in the Round Valley Cemetary just out side of Payson, Gila County, AZ. I talked to my grandpa in 1985, he definately didn't die in 79. Or else he has some talents I wasn't aware of. LOL. I also checked mortuary and cemetary records to get additional information on him and on Ludie, my grandmother. Ludie was born in Ralls, Hall County, TX.
BTW, Grandpa married again after Ludie died. It seems to me that her name was Fanny, I can't remember right now. She died in 97 or so. It was an old age marriage, and there were not children. I was quite annoyed with her, because my grandma and grandpa had a large family plot in the old pioneer cemetary in payson. Elmo, their son who died young, was buried there, Imo, Chester's wife who had died was buried there, and Ludie is buried there. There was a big joint headstone for the Ludie and Issac Jesse. When Grandpa died, his new wife buried him out in the new cemetary and bought a plot and double headstone for the two of them. Now she's buried with him. Since she was his wife, no one had any say about it. I know it doesn't matter, their souls aren't there anyway, but it still annoys me that after 50+ years of marriage and raising a family together, they aren't buried together.
Thank you for all the information you have emailed. It certainly has been a big help to me!
