I adopted the Bodan Cemetery in Pollok, Angelina County, Texas, USA because of the many relatives of mine who are buried there. About 40% of those buried there are related to me.
You have my permission to use the grave marker photographs I have uploaded in any genealogy project. They are not one-of-a-kind photographs. You certainly do not, however, have my permission to use my photographs of family members in some money making scheme. Don't laugh, it has already been tried - and stopped.
The transcription of the grave marker on any memorial is important. Please add them. If you have a problem with adding transcriptions of the grave marker, please take it up with Find A Grave. They have a field for it, they, and I, ask that you fill it.
I registered on Find A Grave on 9 Jul 2001 when there were "only" 2.5 million memorials. For some reason, I didn't create my first memorial until 29 Jul 2001.

RE: Thank you! Josserand is her maiden name and her parents are John V. and Minnie Josserand in the 1930 Baca County Colorado census they are listed as J. V. and Minnie and in the 1940 Washakie Wyoming census John and Minnie Josserand. The 1940 census shows they were in New Mexico in 1935 which is just one year before Iris June and Frank Vaughan got married. Iris lists in the 1940 De Baca County New Mexico census she was in same place which is De Baca County because that is the census she is in.
Rajordan...thank you very much for transferring to me Find A Grave Tuskegee Airmen Memorial - Edward Doyle 58700393
I will be placing clickable links in said Memorial which will inform persons who view it that there is a web page linked to said Memorial which lists names of Tuskegee Airmen who have passed away, and, now, continue to watch over, and, protect the U.S.A. as Members of "THE KNIGHT SHIFT...Hoorah!!!
Further, I seek to build a complete Tuskegee Airmen Cemetery (Pilots & Ground Personnel) which will eventually contain thousands of Tuskegee Airmen. Therefore, if you have, or, know of, additional Tuskegee Airmen, please also let me know about them and transfer them (also, let your family, friends & associates know about this).
Once again, thanks very very much for your assistance.
RE: Ambrose Nathan Jordan Yes, I am more likely to believe the information on a headstone since the family furnished the information and had to pay for the marker. The accuracy of death certificates depends greatly on the accuracy of the clerical worker inputting the information. Always best to simply document the differences. Thanks!
Ambrose Nathan Jordan I think you are correct. Ambrose Nathan Jordan's middle name appears several places as Ambrose Napoleon Jordan. I have it listed on my family tree as such, but since his actual headstone reads Ambrose Nathan Jordan, I suspect he went by Nathan instead of Napoleon. Color me a "confused no-nothing" as well. Ha! Due to the confusion about his name, I have it listed both ways at various places. I will add a note to his Findagrave bio indicating there is some discrepancy regarding this. Thanks for the email. Wish I could have solved the mystery...
Lane Zivley I called the phone number for Capital Parks and they have him listed in Capital Parks. Possibly they have their lists incorrect. I have never been to these cemeteries. Sounds like his grave is close to the border line of the two cemeteries. Possibly the photo of his grave marker will help us.
