Bio and Links
Bio Photo I lived and worked in the Dallas area over 35 years and now reside in northeast Texas. I LOVE the older cemeteries in this area (Cass, Camp, Gregg, Harrison, Henderson, Marion, Morris, Panola, Titus and Upshur counties).

Some contributors on this site are too "serious" and want to "collect" memorials...... I do like to be accurate in linking so I do my own research, but welcome your contributions and suggestions! PLEASE do not post death certificates on memorials I have created. We do not frame them and hang them on the wall!

If you send me a "link" edit and I cannot verify it on my own, I will still generally accept it, but will place your name on the memorial, so if someone has a question about it, they can contact you!

I do NOT link to "unknown burial" memorials. This site is called Find a "Grave" for a reason.

Please don't assume just because a man and women share a tombstone that they were married. Many times, siblings share tombstones.

Please always remember: "You catch more flies with honey than you do with vinegar".

Dorthy Adams (Hughes)
Tricia, this last stretch of Section J in Hillcrest has been a bear!
I have a tombstone photo for the HUGHES couple (Grover C & Minnie V) which I have added to their memorials. Also, buried in the same plot, listed on the same tombstone is Dorthy Adams, 1906-1916. If you'll check out either the Find A Grave memorial of Grover C Hughes or that of Minnie V Hughes, I've posted photos for them and you'll see Dorthy's name on the stone. My question is this: is Dorthy an ADAMS or is she a HUGHES? I searched her name on Find A Grave using both names, and then checked on hoping to find an answer there, to no avail. I'm not sure which last name she should be added under, ADAMS or HUGHES.
Could you refer, once again, to your master file? Hoping that might shed some light on this one.

RE: infant daughter 1905
thanks for taking time to check! she'll just be set up as "infant daughter", no last name. on find a grave, i've noted her being nearby the BALL family and also nearby the ROYAL family.

RE: infant daughter 1905
infant daughter wasn't under BALL, huh? BUMMER!
I've went ahead and created a memorial for her, with no last name. I've added the photos that i took, but was hoping you could check ONE MORE THING for me, before i call this one "complete".
if you'd once again check that master file for INFANT DAUGHTER ROYAL, 1905, and see if you can find her with that last name instead. There are ROYAL family buried to the right side of INFANT DAUGHTER, but i don't recall them being very close. seems i remember unmarked grave(s) or empty plots being directly next to her on the right. I've written myself a note to double check next time I'm in Forney. But, if you don't mind checking your list for me again, using the last name ROYAL this time, I would appreciate it. Don't know if it makes any difference for searching your files or not, but they are all located in Section J.
have a great weekend!

RE: Duncan (???)
GREAT! thanks for checking the reliable "master file" :)
I've created a memorial for George L Alta Duncan and have added the photos.
thanks for your help (and for your great-grandpas as well!).

infant daughter 1905
Hey Tricia,
while you're checking on my other request for DUNCAN, was wondering if you could also look this one up for me, on your master file.
I've a tombstone photo for an "Infant Daughter, 1905", and it read exactly like that.
She is buried beside Elias Jefferson Ball (1870-1960), so i'm guessing she is probably his daughter, thus Infant Daughter Ball, 1905.
If you could check in your file and see if you show a baby BALL passing in 1905, I would certainly appreciate the help. If you can't locate an infant Ball, i will just set her up with no last name, and note that she is buried beside the BAll's.
Thanks much!

Duncan (???)
Time to play "detective" again. I've a photograph I am unable to determine the name for. Was hoping you could look on your Hillcrest Cemetery master file and see if you can find the correct name for this individual.
This is what I **THINK** the tombstone reads:

BORN OCT. 31, 1904
DIED JULY 25, 1905

Will continue to hold the photo until i hear back from you. Thanks for your help!!

Do you know what the name "Knight" means to this person?

Tricia, It would be my privilege to pen a biography for Miss Mattie Mae Etta Johnson. I will share a draft with you in the next few days. Thank you for being willing to do this -- for her.

Warmest genealogy regards,
