If you have corrections or additions, I am happy to put them in but please, use the edit, correction suggestion to do corrections or transfer requests. I am also happy to transfer management to a responsible relative.|
I became interested in genealogy in 1993 after my grandmother passed away. I have collected over 40,000 names 4500 obituaries, and 1500 death certificates for descendants of 1880 Lawrence County, Ohio.
In 2010 I found findagrave and found it to be a excellent site for remembering our ancestors.
I have done considerable work on City Cemetery, Brownsville, Texas, (adding 20,000+ names, in addition to several 1000 more by other volunteers - 25,000+ total), I also have done several smaller cemeteries in Brownsville and Lawrence Co, Ohio.
I am also working to index Brownsville Death Certificates from 1950 to 1976 (images available on familysearch.org up to 1976) and the Brownsville Herald Newspaper obits from 1977 to 2013. Currently have scanned images of 1977 to 2013, with index complete from 1977 to 2001. If you need a Brownsville obit in this time frame, send me a note with the name and death date.
After the index in complete, I expect to find several 1000 more names that have no headstone to add.
Just found a great webpage, adblock.com. It is shareware, you don't have to pay but it is worth $15-30 to block almost every ad. Stops the ads on findagrave, well worth something to stop them, but also stops adchoices garbage.
Do not post photo requests for City Cemetery. All readable headstones have been posted.
Photo requests for Buena Vista and Rose Lawn in Brownsville requires contacting the cemetery by a family member to obtain plot location information. They will not give the info to a non family member, who knows why, its just "policy".

|Diana Rangel||Felipa Cortez|
Trying to get a photo of the tombstone of Felipa Cortez. Plot: Blk 60 lot 20. She is my great grandmother. She passed away on Sept. 21, 1910 and she is buried at Old City Cemetery in Brownsville,Texas. If you can get a picture of that I would it. Thank you for your hard work and research.

|Deleon Todd||Major Bobbitt|
Thanks Dave for the email; but, I wasn't able to open & read the obit, & obtain the additional data. Can you copy & paste the data into an email. I'd be happy to add any data that's significant to the memory of Major Bobbitt. Thanks.
|Ann Mensch||RE: William Hamlett|
Thank you for photographing William Johns HAMLETT's gravestone, in the Brownsville Cemetery. Both he and his wife are siblings of my husband's ancestors. (A brother and sister married a brother and sister.)

Thanks so much for your hard work. Awesome job!
|S. Vallejo Jr.||RE: Julian and Virginia Tamez|
No idea but when someone dies and he is quite old sometimes the descendants take a wild guess or go from something they were told or notes they had on paper.
My notes are from Genealogy research and dealing with actual data stored in archives of Familysearch.org and their onlines files of baptisms, births, marriages, etc. which were uploaded by the Church of Latter Day Sts.
I had included this family on my database at Tribalpages.com because Virginia Garda's mom Regina Zambrano comes from the same lineage as my great-grandmother Lucinda Zambrano.
The Tamez lineages are also one of my favorites and I have developed quite a few friends who were happy I did researches there including Esuebio Tamez of McAllen. It's rewarding to help others find their lines.
You can see my BIO and look at my webpage on Tribalpages.com, I have over 27,000 names of Vallejo Families of Nuevo Leon, Mexico"
PS: You are doing some awesome work yourself and is quite appreciate by others such as myself and descendants of people which have passed on. Thank you so much.
|S. Vallejo Jr.||RE: Tamez Gparents|
I am a new member and I guess I always assume that only records that have burial sites ONLY in the US can be added. I am a friend of Macedonio Tamez who is a relative and a descendant of Macedonio Tamez and Concepcion Cavazos who are probably buried in Allende, Mexico, I will ask him.
I have not talked with Macedonio in quite a while but he sent me a very interesting note written by his ancestor Macedonio on 2 Feb 1895 and talks about his marriage to Concepcion Cavazos and names both their parents, very cool !!!
I will ask Macedonio if I can post of the memorial for Daniel J Tamez and get back with you.
