Adolph Daniel Memorial
Adolph Daniel memorial #48810201. I was reading the death certificate information. The mother's maiden name is Fudge not Judge. I know it is hard to read writing on some death certificates.
Thanks,

RE: Harold Taub
Hi!

If you will not provide the burial plot, then please cancel your photo request.

The "Help with Find A Grave" clearly states it is the responsibility of the person requesting the photo to provide the burial plot. Please don't get mad at me for asking you to obtain the burial plot.

By the way, I'm not bothered by the fact that you have a photo request, I am just trying to clear up the backlog of photo requests at the cemetery. In less than a month I've cleared up more than 300 photo requests at Forest Home. All of the people that I did this for seemed very grateful.

Hello, I am involved with a group from Steeleville, IL that is planning a cemetery walk in Steeleville Cemetery. One of the graves/stones that we are going to talk about is Rev. Charles Jay.
I was wondering if you have any information that you would be willing to share that could help us in the telling of his life.
Thank you for your consideration.

CAPT. J C BROWN
Angie: I'm looking for the gravesite of Capt. JC Brown, Texas Ranger and Confederate Officer - Parson's Brigade, 12th Texas Cavalry, Company E - Ellis County Grays. His parents Elizabeth & Joseph Brown, 1st wife Eliza and infant son are buried in Milford. He was born 1830 and died somewhere between 1895 and 1900. Capt. Brown was an important figure in Milford and since he is not buried beside his second wife, Lucinda, in Mineral Wells, it stands to reason he was buried in Milford.

Of interest, the Texas 12th Cavalry was in almost constant guerilla warfare till the end of the war from what I've read. They are also responsible for keeping the Civil War out of Texas. Capt. Brown returned to Milford 34-days after the war with an iron ball the size of a quarter in his leg. The iron ball and his pocket knife remain in our family. He was my great-great granddad.

The former Texas Ranger Association has been wanting to honor him with a special graveside service, but we cannot locate his gravesite.

I'm looking for the gravesite of Capt. John C Brown, born 1830 and died between 1895 an 1900. I thought he might be buried in the Milford Cemetery by his infant son and 1st wife. He is not buried by his second wife in Mineral Wells Elm cemetery either.

Nelson family
Hió

Coincidentally, as I was looking at Darden graves from Milford, TX on Find a Grave (my fatherís family), I noticed you are related to my Nelson ancestors (my Motherís). My grandmother was Maude Leona Nelson, born in Saline Co., AR in 1891, to George Washington Nelson and Mary Elizabeth Addy. I have the Nelson family back through Marshallís mother Nancy, and the Addy family back to William, born in Ireland in 1750.

Thanks for your service in the Milford Cemetery, and best wishes.

Thank you so much for the information. I'm a few thousand miles away in Idaho, so I won't be able to meet, but it's good information for me to put in the family history portfolio I'm compiling for descendants of the Robinson line.

RE: Thomas Gilkey
Hi Angie,
Ha, ha, I know what you mean about "cemetery guru"....I call myself the "cemetery nazi"!

I didn't create Thomas Gilkey's memorial....I requested a photo of his tombstone "HOPING" that whoever created the memorial was correct about his burial location. I'm sorry I sent you on a wild goose chase....I will delete my request. I really didn't know he wasn't buried there, I swear! Thank you for your efforts and for sending me an email letting me know he wasn't buried there, I appreciate it!

Bob & Bonnie McEver
Files Valley Cemetery
This relates to the status of the cemetery in Files Valley, TX. In the 1970s, a board was established to oversee maintenance of the cemetery. All of the board members are now deceased. In order to insure some level of maintenance going forward, a new board should be established. A meeting seems necessary to reestablish the board and the first group to make contact with, before going to the general population of the community, in my opinion, should be those FindAGrave Contributors who have shown an interest and demonstrated some effort to preserve the memory of those interred there. If you have experience in managing small cemeteries and/or the interest to participate in this process, please contact me via email at bmcever@sbcglobal.net.

Regards and thanks for all your work for FindAGrave.

Boulder
Yes...I loved hearing my Dad talk about it - He, my Mom and my 2 older sisters lived at Rag Town in a sheep wagon. He was about 24 when he got the job of oiler on a crane.
Then he learned to handle dynamite, which my mother hated him doing. He had what they called dynamite headaches for years afterward from inhaling the fumes. I have to write his story someday! Nice to talk to you - I will try to find the site you mentioned. (We were in Vegas on construction jobs when the Strip was a few gas stations! - Dad turned down buying one for $1,500, kit and kabootle - Ha!)
