RE: Palestine Black Cemetery
Why not keep it "Black Cemetery"? At the time "white" & "black's" were segregated. It's part of history!!! Not a good thing but it happened.

Please add 2 Children of Silas & Amelia Denson
Hi! I was so happy to find this wonderful information on my great grandparents, Silas & Amelia Denson as well as, one of their sons, Ollie Denson! I've added my family photographs to their memorial pages.
I did notice that my grandfather, Charles Wesley Denson & Uncle, Benjamin Franklin Denson, were not added to Silas and Amelia's list of Children. Can you please add them. Thank You so much!

RE: Jack Vandale
This is a branch of my tree. He married Adeline Lareta Terry on 22 Jan 1946 in Los Angeles, CA. I have not found his birth record yet or his death certificate, however, if you have access to ancestry, there are numerous individual trees where is it entered as being born 05 Oct 1926 and dying 21 Feb 1981 in Palestine, Anderson, TX. Parents are Rector Doyle Vandale and Margaret Mary Burke Vandale.

If you choose not to connect, that is your decision.

Thank you for asking and creating his memorial.

RE: Clara Franks Chandler
I have seen that memorial & wondered if it was for Clara. The two names you mentioned sound like her brothers. They are both buried there at Pilgrim. I'll have to take a look the three memorials. She was a widow when she died.

Clara Franks Chandler
Looking for the grave of Clara Franks Chandler born 09 Oct 1901 and died on 08 Feb 1940 in Palestine, Texas. She was laid to rest in Pilgrim Cemetery at Elkhart according to her death cert. She was the daughter of Edward Oakley and Georgia Ann Franks. I looked at the listing of Pilgrim but, didn't find her. Do you have any information on her?

Henry Cleburne Franks
Hi, Thanks for putting Henry on Find-A-Grave. I'm afraid he now has three memorials on here. It would be nice if they could all be combined on the memorial up at Holly Springs in Montalba. There is a double marker with his first wife there and a memorial with H Cleburne Franks #31157345.

I found all three memorial simply by typing in H Cleburne Franks in "Begin New Search" on Find-A-Grave. In addition to your memorial #20481739 there is another #43855746 (I have contacted them, also).

I do realize his body was donated. Family, however usually put up a marker so they will have a grave to visit.

Thanks for all your work.
