Remember the Past ~ Imagine the Future
Volunteer: by definition means "a person who performs a service willingly and without pay." That is what its all about here on Find A Grave; volunteers giving freely of their time and resources. Yes, some have more time than others; more time to add more names, find more info and do more research, but that does not diminish the importance of the contributor who only has time to add just basic names. Sometimes its the smallest clue that brings the biggest results.
PLEASE try to remember because we are dedicated "Gravers" we have stomped through mud puddles, walked for miles, swatted mosquitoes, got stung by fire ants, stood out in 105 degree summer sun and/or froze our rear off on a cold & frosty winter morning - all to get that perfect photo (at our time & expense) others have requested from some remote cemetery out in the "boonies". So please, instead of complaining to us that we misspelled your loved ones name on the memorial pg we made for them (we are human, we all make mistakes, and we are more than happy to correct our typos), please consider how wonderful it would be for us to hear an occasional "thank you for your efforts."
Me, I volunteer in any area where I have the resource material to do so. I volunteer for Find A Grave in numerous counties. I volunteered previously for the Texas Tombstone Transcription Project. I also volunteer in the TXGenWeb Project. I do volunteer look-ups from resource material that I own on assorted Texas counties, however the primary counties are: Angelina, Llano, Mason, Milam & Williamson counties. My main county of (personal) interest is my birth county of Llano. If anyone has questions pertaining to Angelina Co cemeteries, or the info you've found listed about them here on Find A Grave, you may contact me. There may be cemeteries listed from time to time as being here in Angelina Co that actually are not here. Others may have been duplicated under "aka" names. And others not yet posted.
NOTICE: I HAVE CEASED LINKING TO "UNKNOWN" BURIALS, please do NOT ask me to link to them. You cannot "find a grave" if you don't know where its at.
* NOTE: Per the Find A Grave guidelines, I do not post photos which I did not take, or have personal ownership of, or permission to use - that means newspaper obit photos (I've only posted a few obit photos in the past but have ceased doing so completely). IF I post an obit photo in the future it means I knew the person or family.(updated Oct 2012)
About Find A Grave: if you are new to Find A Grave (1) PLEASE read the FAQ section BEFORE you start asking for transfers or sending suggestions, corrections, additions, comments, etc. And when you do send your comments/requests (2) PLEASE use the "edit" tab found on each memorial pg to send your msg. Use of the edit tab takes us straight to the name in question and cuts down on mistakes. And (3) Unless I know you and know your work, PLEASE state the source (or reason) for the change/addition in the info (death certificate, obit, census, family Bible, personal knowledge, etc) I know I sometimes forget to add these to my SAC's, so if you need to know where I got my info, just ask me (for me, most will be from TXDC's or the census)
ABOUT MY PERSONAL FAMILY PHOTOS: you DO NOT have permission to take/use any of my personal family photos, period! (unless I personally tell you its ok) If you have interest in any of my personal family lines, email me, tell me who you are and what your interest in my family names is.
ABOUT THE TOMBSTONE PHOTOS I ADD: if they are your family and you wish to add them to your family trees, yes you may do so, BUT remember to give credit where credit is due and note that you found it on Find A Grave "courtesy of Deb in Angelina Co". On the other hand, you DO NOT have permission to take & re-post my photos from other websites, or those here on Find A Grave, under your name as if you were the photographer. Whether good, bad, old, or new, I recognize my own photos. It's not about "owning", it's about giving another person the credit for the effort they went to, to gather & post data for the benefit of those who are searching for family. Thank you!
Family names of personal interest to me are too many to list, but my main line of research interests are in surnames: Alvis, Baugh, Collins, Coursey, Leslie, Hammond, Mankins, Moore, Mott, Murphy, Roberts, Secrest, Sharp, and numerous names associated with those families. The Honey Creek Cemetery (aka Coursey Cemetery by the old timers) in Llano Co is the resting place for many of my direct family lines. Others are in Bell and Williamson counties.
Other surnames of interest via marital lines are: Camp, Broomfield, Gallion, Kendrick, Keith, Pitts, Martin, Sunday, Tull/Tullos and those associated with them. If you have family history from any of these similar family lines feel free to contact me.

|DON SHARP||Sharp Ancestry|
I just noticed your interest in the "Sharp" family name. I have ancestors that migrated to Texas thru Arkansas from Carrollton Georgia...Maybe there is a connection????
|DON SHARP||William H. Rosser|
Many thanks for completing my edit request and I appreciate your desire for accuracy. I have seen too many occasions where incorrect info is placed on these memorial. Thanks for your efforts. Would you like for me to delete the D/C on his memorial?
|DON SHARP||William H Rosser|
I have the 1860 Henry County, GA census record that shows W. H. with his Father, George, and his siblings,James H., Matilda Jane, Sallie, and new born brother George Sidney Albert living with their grandmother Elizabeth Spence Rosser in Henry County, GA. William's mother died from childbirth complications when George was born in Dec. 1859.
William's oldest brother Joseph has died before the 1860 Census was taken.
|DON SHARP||Rosser names|
Williams's dad, George Percy Spence Rosser was married 4 times. The family migrated to Dickson County, TN and I have 1860, 1880, 1900, 1910, US Census record showing the families travels as well as marriage license of both William and his father marrying in Dickson TN. I can not locate a 1870 US Census for Dickson County. TN. George married his 3rd wife, Mary Elizabeth England in Dickson County, TN. George mother's maiden name Spence. The Spence & Graves names are all family names that are use with William's children. The lack of the 1870 census record is a key document. Since father and son were ministers, they would seem very likely to travel.
|DON SHARP||RE: Rosser names|
Many thanks for bringing the date error to my attention, I have made the appropriate correction to his mother's memorial. I have uploaded William Harrison Rosser's Texas death certificate to his memorial. I hope this will prove you the needed proof to make the family links. I appreciate your devotion to accuracy. I hope you can now make my request to link the family members.

Sorry. I guess it got lost in all the emails.

Deb, Thanks so much for letting me know the correct cemetery for Melvin. Per your suggestion I have moved him. Looking forward to picture of monument you have.
|faith bentley||Lee Allen Cemetary|
Deb, I am trying to find the cemetery that is on FM 843. That could be known as Lee Allen Cemetery. I've talked to Joy Pinner and she tells me that you manage it on Find A Grave. I know where it is located, but can't find it on the web. Thanks Faith
|Holly Bonorden Jentsch||RE: Gause Cemetery|
Thank you! The title is 'satisfaction' and I can't remember where i found it now...but it just kinda makes me feel 'sweet' & "old fashion" to look at it. Silly, I guess! ;) As a amatur photographer, I would like to take something similar one day that is of 'my own'...still trying! :) LOL
|Mo Memorials 2 Make||Deb, I can't thank you enough!|
Thanks so much Deb, you have made this transition a lot easier for me to deal with tonight. Death is never easy, but for some sorta kookie way- Find A Grave has helped me in so many ways, to cope, feel closer to my loved ones that have passed on to Heaven.
Send me your email and I will give ya the rest of the painful story that way- it blew me away and then you will understand 100%, the full impact of my transfer request. Just between you and I.
Thanks my sweet friend- I owe ya! Hugs,
Have a blessed week. Hard to type through tears.
