Bio and Links
Bio Photo I helped co-write state laws to protect our cemeteries here in Texas.
I've been Honored by the Texas State Senate, Texas State House of Representatives, The Dallas County Historical Commission for my work in preserving and protecting our cemeteries. I served on The State Senate Advisory Committee as well as being an Advisor to a number of cities in my area pertaining to cemeteries within their city limits. I have helped in clean ups and restoring a number of cemeteries. I believe very strongly in cemetery preservation. Cemeteries in most cases are the only history of those that came before us. Like rare books in a library once it's lost it's lost forever.
I served six years on the Duncanville City Council, two years as mayor pro-tem.
I've been working on family genealogy since 1976. I'm the wife of Wallace Richards.

Memorial# 144927975...I saw you manage the Parents memorials and was researching them. Shes another child of Julius Cain and Mary James. I found a DC for her but no memorial so I made her one. Let me know if you want her transferred.

Since you are managing this profile, can you delete the photo and re-upload it under "grave" instead of "portrait".

Judy,
Marvin Alvin Driggers is my father. All of the Rileys are his half brothers and sisters. Rilla M. Bullock Riley is his mother. So he belongs on the page. All are my Uncles and Aunts.

If you look the asterisks show he was a half sibling.

Thank you

Marvin Ray Driggers, Son

If you need to use one of our photos in a cemetery, please notify us and we will add the photo. We have done many in the Navarro County area and don't want anyone to think we took them from you.

Thank you,
Karen

E.C. Barber
A family member notified me that E.C. Barber only had initials for his name, so it wasn't Edward Cleveland. I sent an edit on his listing in Dresden Cem.

Thank you,
Karen Rost
