Hi Sandi,

Would it be possible for you to transfer management of my cousin's memorial to me? He is Donald L. Peters (# 40658581). Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

Have a great day!

Frances Coleman Womack # 14588974
Hi Sandi,
I have sent you an email enumerating Frances Womack's parents and siblings. Should you wish to include them in the memorial may assist others researching this family and help make connections. It is wonderful that Fanny's grave is known and marked, as her younger sister Vashti's, (my gggggreat grandmother) resting place is to my sorrow, unknown. I have a good bit of info on Frances and the Womacks should you be interested.

Alice B. Fleming burial
Years ago there was a marker for Alice B. Fleming in Oakland Cemetery, Grimes County, Texas. I submitted an edit to you with a transcription. The person who sent me this data also said there was a Robert Fleming marker that was almost unreadable.

James V Floyd # 40016384
There is a photo of him on the memorial by you and wonder if you are related to him?
I am trying to find more info on his wife Sarah and be sure of her parents. The informant on her death Cert. says doesn't know. All I can tell you for sure is she was born about 1850 in Alabama and married a Floyd (Plus her parents of Edmond Parker and Martha Lewis) Hope to hear from you.

R Paul Miller Find A Grave Memorial# 59650782

I sent an edit to link R Paul Miller with his wife Delores whom he is buried with.

I added the photo of their shared headstone. The couple are buried in Forest Lawn Cemetery in Omaha, Nebraska.

The location of R Paul Miller's grave is Segment# 7, Lot# 594, Grave# 12.

I hope this helps.

Miranda Shuler Bookman
I truly appreciate all of the information that you post about Miranda who I THINK may be my GG-grandmother. Matilda Shuler/Bookman Williams was my great-grandmother. On the Census Matilda William's mother was born in South Carolina, Matilda was born in 1852 in Anderson, Grimes County, Texas and was married to my great-grandfather, Daniel Williams June 6, 1870 in Grimes County according to records on Matilda Shuler's name appears as mother on the death certificates of her children --- along with Daniel Williams as father. For the life of me I cannot find any information on Matilla till the 1880 Census. I knew we were related to the Black Bookman's but I didn't know how until I saw the marriage record in 1870. On the Census Matilda is listed as mulatto. My grandmother, Mittie Williams Stevenson (Matilda's daughter) told me that her mother was half Muskogee Native American, which doesn't jibe with the surname Shuler. There are no family members alive who can fill me in. Have you seen any kind of information concerning Matilda Shuler/Bookman Williams? I had thought Matilda may be Miranda's child prior to her marriage to F. David Bookman, but now I am scratching my head. I haven't even been able to find a death certificate on Matilda and she last showed up on the 1900 Census records. By 1910 Daniel was widowed living with their youngest child, Lusters Williams, my maternal uncle. Luster's had one child, Cecil Williams who was born in Walker County and died there in 2007. He was County Commissioner in Walker at one time. Before that he was a Principal of a High School in Huntsville. I last visited him when I was visiting TX in 2003. We exchanged some information concerning our lineage and planned to delve further into it but we never managed to do so.

Sandi, I see you are on FB. So am I. I sure would appreciate any information you may be able to come up with concerning my g-grandmother Matilda. My assumptions have been dispelled and I am at a loss.

Gresham-Ashford-Stone Cemetery
I was working the unmapped cemeteries in Find A Grave for Grimes County, and when I went to move your GPS location to the map, I found a bad decimal. When I tried 30.219425, -96.015210, Google Maps said it was in Waller Co. Could you help me out with this one? I also wanted to share that your work has made it very easy to clean up a lot of these and I really appreciate it. -Rebecca

RE: William D Collins, Union Hill Cemetery?
My William D is William David Collins. He also had a son named William David. His father was John A. Collins. Hope yours doesn't turn out to be another Collins in Grimes county. Let me know what you find. I'd love to see the book. If you need any other info that I have, just let me know. Thanks for all your research.
