Bio and Links
Bio Photo We can all do more helping each other than we can working alone.

Working my way through entries I manage in Collin, Wise County and Clay County, Texas. I gained management of a large group of them just recently so is a work in progress.

Earthman Resthaven Cemetery in Houston, Harris County, Texas is a "project" of sorts for me, I have added over 15,000 entries and pictures to this cemetery so far.

If additional information is offered, happy to update entries I manage. I like to connect entries to their spouse and parent's entries, makes it much easier to move around for everyone and adds value to the entry.

Primary lines: Hollis, Patterson, Maxwell, Davenport, Combest, Riggins, Hammonds, Peck, Dick. But am collecting data on all associated surnames.
I love pictures, it brings a little life to these "dead" names on paper we work on every day. smile....Concerning the pictures I post to the Findagrave website, we have to make them smaller to fit on the webpage which means you can't zoom in on the picture to pick up details. If this is case on one you need, write me, I'll try to find the original and send it to you.

I choose to follow Findagrave guidelines for transfer, which can be found on the Findagrave FAQ page, but in summary.

I transfer your ancestors or your descendants or your siblings unless they are my ancestors as well, but remember your grandfather's sister's nephew is not your ancestor....I accept they are part of your family, but let's keep it your ancestors, your siblings or your descendants.

For updates or connections, please the "Suggest a correction" feature on an entry for update or transfer, this gives me a shortcut to the entry as well as sending me the correction you wish made. Typically, I will get the update or connection done the same or next day unless I am out of town.

Please don't make duplicates of existing entries, it is confusing to us all, having said that if I have made a duplicate it was an accident, please advise me so I can get it fixed either by deletion or having findagrave merge the 2 entries to preserve flowers or connections.

Some findagravers insist on having multiple surnames in the surname field because of several marriages, please use the surname they died with as it makes a search for them nigh on to impossible otherwise.

Mary Driver McEuen
Richard, would you mind transferring Mary (Driver) McEuen # 54995424 to me, as she is a dad's aunt. I would like very much to see her linked to her parents and siblings. Thank you for your consideration in this matter.

Memorial #64396062
Richard, would you mind transferring this memorial to my name, as she is a "double" aunt on my mother's side of the family. Her father was my grandfather, John Wm Willis, Memorial # 122710570 and her mother was Martha Keele Willis #114939518. I would like very much to see her linked to them and her siblings. Thank you for your consideration in this matter.

RE: Lucy "Grace" Tooley # 6464665
Hello Richard, First of all I would like to thank you for taking the time to take pictures and keep memorial pages, I know it can be time consuming. I have sent an edit for Lucy's middle name. I have checked the 1870- 1900 census plus her marriage bond to James Howard Mize. They all have "J" as her middle inital, which supports the name "Jane" that I have in my tree. Thanks, Joanne

John William Roberson 1891-1980
Richard, I appreciate all the memorials you have on Find A Grave. My husband's grandfather is John William Roberson 1891-1980, son of Nathan Tucker Roberson and Sarah Phillips Roberson. You have John William listed as a son of Nathan T. Roberson and also as a sibling. Could you remove him as a sibling.
Thank You,
Nancy Simmons Roberson

"use the surname they died with"
Actually, I think the site rules say to use the name on their headstone - discussing differences in the bio. If one is buried with a previous spouse, then the buried name will usually not match the obituary. Searching a cemetery on foot to take photos tho, it's nice to have the right buried name.
