I'm wanting to visit this cemetary as Joel Williams is my 3 g- grandfather. Is the gate locked ? If so is there a contact person? Any info would be great, thank you.

Bio. for Henry Thomas Gray
Unable to contact you through Find a Grave. So, in case you're able to monitor this board, thought I'd post it here instead. This is in reference to
Find A Grave Memorial# 28674563, for Henry Thomas Gray:

More information about Henry T. Gray:

Soruce: Civil War Veterans of Northeast Tarrant County, Henry Thomas Gray, Compiled by Michael Patterson. Copyright 2009=2010, All Rights Reserved.

Henry Thomas Gray was a Confederate veteran who lived in northeast Tarrant County when the War began, and for several years thereafter. He was born in Carroll County, Mississippi on March 14, 1844. Family sources at ancestry.com report that he was a son of Hiram Arthur Gray and his wife, Martha (Smith) Gray.

When the 1850 census was taken, Henry Gray was living with his fathers family in the Southern Division of Carroll County, Mississippi. In 1860, H. A. Gray appears in the Tarrant County, Texas tax lists; in that year he owned no real estate.

Gray served the Confederacy as a private in Co. A, 34th Texas Cavalry, to which many other northeast Tarrant County men belonged. His records in the National Archives in Washington show that he enlisted on January 15, 1862 at Grapevine.

The enlisting officer was Hiram Crowley, and the initial enlistment period was one year. Family sources report that H. T. Gray married Mary Ann Anderson, who was born June 4, 1844 in Illinois. She died at Caddo Mills, Hunt County, Texas on March 1, 1891. They were probably married in Tarrant County about 1865.

When the 1870 census was taken, he was living next-door to Milton Moore at Bedford. Ten years later, in 1880, the family is shown living in Precinct 3 of Tarrant County south of Big Bear Creek. In 2000, a direct descendant of Gra ys was still living on his (Gray's) farm in Hunt County, Texas, where he lived when his wife died in 1891.

Gray applied for a Confederate pension in 1909 while a resident of Bandera County, Texas. In his application, he said he moved to Texas about 1857, and to Bandera County about 1905. He said he had first served in the cavalry, but was later dismounted at Van Buren, Arkansas. His file contains an affidavit by R. P. Allen of Smithfield, who said he'd known Gray for fifty years. A younger brother of Henry Gray, R. W. Gray, of Bandera County, said he was nine years old when the war started, and remembered seeing his brother going and coming home.

A mortuary warrant in his pension file says he died October 19, 1918 in Bandera, and was buried in Bandera Cemetery. His death certificate says he died of heart trouble associated with asthma and dropsy. A marker in the cemetery says he belonged to the 20th Brigade of the Texas State Militia.

The headstone gives his death date as October 29, 1918. A list of the children of Henry and Mary Ann Graves, obtained from Ancestry.com, includes Sarah Ann Gray (June 1866-1918); Lillie Jane Gray (August 25, 1871); Joseph Wilson Gray (May 25, 1873-); Thomas Jefferson Gray (December 4, 1875-1847); Martha Ida Gray (June 19, 1878-1963), and William Arthur Gray (August 30, 1881-1924).

I have been leaving you emails through this system, but perhaps you are busy. So, allow me to leave the suggested changes here. Please refer to http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~nichols1836/Alexander%20Green%20Nichols.html

Margaret Ann Nichols Billings Memorial# 28374043 is the daughter of Caroline J Nichols Memorial# 28367247 and Alexander Green "Green" Nichols Memorial# 61671447

And I think I confused on what I sent you about Margaret's son and husband. According to the above link, her husband was Clay Yancy Billings Memorial# 28402450. They were the parents of Frank C Billings Frank C Billings Memorial# 28423738

Thank you for taking time for taking this picture for me. Unfortunately the headstone picture you posted is for his parents. Henderson M. Williams headstone should be in the same cemetery. Henderson M. Williams i am looking for was born in 1850 and died in 1932. Thanks again

I saw your photo of the cemetery my step grandparents are buried. That was such a pretty picture. My grandparents are Leo and Blanche McAllister. Findagrave numbers 967455 and 65957173.

I wanted to send you a message asking permission to copy the photo you took of Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery in San Antonio. I'd like to add it to my ancestry family tree.

Also may I copy any photos/info you have on this site? I like to add photos about the persons life or in this case death.It adds so much.

Thanks so much. I will, of course, give you credit if you'd like. Please let me know if you'd like me to add the credit. Thanks for all the work you've done. So many of you have served others so well.

Thanks,
Susie

RE: # 98405265
Actually, you are right, YOU did make a duplicate on October 9, 2012. My memorial was on here October 7, 2012. Your memorial number is 98552557, only around 147,292 memorials after mine. It really was not necessary to go through all of this. If you had just written and asked for a transfer, I would have happily given it to you, especially with you being his brother. I will delete mine, but I hope if you run into this again, you would notify the contributor who created the memorial, and ask for a transfer, rather than to make a duplicate and try to make the origional contributor look like THEY have done something wrong.
