    Elmerine Bell-Save St. Mary Cemetery in Italy, TX

    in Family

    SAVE ST. MARY CEMETERY


    What is now known as St. Mary Cemetery, is located on Hughes Cemetery Road near the towns of Avalon, Forreston and Italy (Ellis County), Texas, dates back to at least 1851. The burial ground is shown on a county map dated 1861 and was a part of the Tarrant Plantation, owned by General Edward H. Tarrant, the person for whom Tarrant County, Texas, is named. The 1870 United States Federal Census shows the area encompassing the St. Mary Community as Ellis County, Texas, Waxahachie - Chambers Creek Post Office. As late as 1940, census records the St. Mary Community as having a school with a teacher in residence nearby. As further verification, a photograph exists from the early 1930s with images of a group of students with their teacher whose family owned a nearby farm.


    On March 24, 2012, family members who went to the cemetery as a part of quarterly maintenance reported that someone had encroached upon the burial grounds, desecrating the oldest portion of the cemetery on the west and north sides by removing mature trees and foliage. It appeared, from visible tracks in the soil, that some type of excavator had been used to create a road from Hughes Cemetery Road through the cemetery to the west, taking out gravestones - some that had been there for more than a century -along with the vegetation. Grave memorabilia were found within and north of the newly constructed road. Graves lay underneath the road and the topography of the entire west side of the cemetery had be compromised. At least three piles of trees, foliage and grave markers were viewed in a western field.

    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    "Black Africa, including British, French, Belgian, Portuguese, Italian, and Spanish possessions and the independent states of Abyssinia and Liberia and leaving out of our account Egypt and North Africa, on one hand, and South Africa, on the other, has an area of 8,200,000 square miles and a population of well over one hundred Millions of black men, with less than one hundred thousand whites...


    The Statistics South Africa Census 2011 showed that there were about 4,586,838 white people in South Africa, amounting to 8.9% of the country's population. This is a 6.8% increase since the 2001 census.


    "Commercial exploitation in Africa has already larger results to show than most people realize. Annually $200,000,000 worth of goods was coming out of Africa before the World War, including a third of the world's rubber, a quarter of the world's cocoa, and practically all of the world's cloves, gum -Arabic, and Palm oil. In exchange there was being returned to Africa one hundred millions in cotton cloth, twenty five millions in iron and steel, and as much in foods, and probably twenty five million in liquors."W.E.B.DuBois 


    The African continent is richly endowed with mineral resources – this cannot be disputed. The US Geological Survey (USGS) ranks Africa as the largest or second-largest reserve worldwide for bauxite (the main source of aluminium), cobalt (used to make alloys and batteries), industrial diamonds (needed to cut hard materials), manganese (the anticorrosive element in steel), phosphate rock (a key ingredient in fertilisers), platinum group metals (a primary component in automotive catalytic convertors), soda ash (an element in glass production), vermiculite (a component in fireproof materials) and zirconium (used to manufacture heat-resistant ceramic materials).

He was a proud 'ole peacock. She was his young hen. Her mother lived to be the 'proper wife,' the 'proper mother.' They were to be 'ladies.' Mother was. Kelly's sister was. She wasn't.


    Her book is for the 39 million survivors of childhood sexual abuse reported at the end of the 20th century living in the USA alone. This is an invitation for those who suffer to begin healing.
