Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired university teacher and librarian with interest in Civil War burials and burial practices. Also undertaking to photograph all cemeteries in Erath County, TX, and surrounding counties, then to enter the tombstone information into the database. Many older tombstones are in such shape as to be illegible, so corrections to bad or missing biographical information is welcomed.

Please make requests for additions, corrections, links, etc., directly from the memorials' "edit" feature rather than here. I'll get to them much faster. (Transfers to direct descendants, please, and not in bulk lots!)

Cecil Bumgarner
Mr. Jones: The data for Cecil Bumgarner b 23 May 1908 Comanche Co. TX, d 31 Oct 1991 bur Union Cem, Gustine, Comanche Co. TX must be grossly wrong.

Cecil Bumgarner, the son of George Abb & Carrie Bumgarner of Mineral Wells, Palo Pinto Co. TX, married 26 Mar 1927 to Ethel Pauline Beaty, dau of Ose Ola & Mary Caroline "Carrie" (Cross) Beaty. Ethel Pauline is shown on 1930 census with Cecil and children Morris Dean and Wm. Ray; Mineral Wells, Palo Pinto Co. TX, pg 10B, #241-257 next door to his parents #240-256; her brother George Beaty also in home. Also Cecil and Pauline on 1940 census Wichita Co. TX, ED50, p 15A, #320, with sons Morris Dean and Billy Ray. Pauline did not die until 1989 and is buried Greenwood Mem Park Cem, Ft. Worth, Tarrant Co. TX.

I wonder if MY Cecil (son of George Abb Bumgarner) might be the Cecil b 16 June 1909, d 11 Feb 2002 Burleson, Johnson Co. TX, bur Greenwood Mem Park Cem in Ft. Worth, Tarrant Co. TX; there's a FindA Grave #7953170 for him but no family data given. I shall investigate further, but am certain the Cecil bur Comanche Co. is NOT son of George Abb Bumgarner.

Tinnin Family
Hello, I am a relative of the Tinnin Family (which includes William Tinnin #20357552) and I was wondering if I could have your permission to use all of their grave stone photos on my personal family tree?
Thank you!

Thomas Benton King
The picture you posted for Thomas Benton King, #12185344, is not "your" Thomas Benton King. I have an ancestor named Thomas Benton King who was a Civil War Veteran. In fact, I have his military records that have this very picture on them, but with different dates and places of birth and death than what you have posted. Please remove this picture as it is not the right person.

Thank you.
