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.

John Henry Sells 1908-1931
Hello Judy,

I was researching my Sells family line. I came across Henry Sells again and taking a closer look. I have come across your memorial on John Henry and I found another memorial for him too.

This is the memorial I found first on John Henry Sells.

Find A Grave Memorial# 130123288

Trinidad City Cemetery
Henderson County
Texas, USA

He is buried with his mother Selina Keedy Sells.

My question is.....Is your memorial on Henry the same one as above? Your Memorial states unknown burial.

Thank you for your help,

Frank and Laura Douglas, Resthaven Cemetery
I have been looking for a Frank (#64005149) and Laura Douglas buried in the Jacksonville area and was wondering how you came across info to potentially put the ones I am looking for in Resthaven Cemetery. You currently have no dates listed for either, and did not want to contribute information that I have for the ones I am looking for to your memorials if they were different people. Do you have any info other than what was posted? Thanks.

May I share the photo on my family tree. Your name and date taken will be shown. Also I assume he is buried with his wife at Resthaven in Corsicana, do you know if this is correct
