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.

Hi Richard,
Was surprised to find this un-requested transfer. Am wondering if you meant to transfer this memorial to someone else?
I certainly don't mind the transfer, but if some one is waiting for their direct ancestor, I don't want to be in the way.
Thanks for all you do here on Find a Grave!

Hello Richard, and Happy New Year,

I sent you a bunch of suggested edits back in Dec for Mark and several others and just wondered if you would glance at those. They are all now shown as "pending" and my New Year's resolution is to try and update all the family for whom I have additional info.

Question About Family Link
Hi! I'm creating a very large family tree and had a quick question, I'm hoping you can answer. I got to Memorial 43595178, Zilpha. Would you happen to know if she and Nancy, her linked sibling, are twins or just born the same year, a good time apart? Thank you so much for any help!

Wiist family (Pete and Christine)
Would like to know if you are related to the Wiist family. I know one of the granddaughters who might want to maintain their memorials as she is researching that part of her family. I won't know until after she and her husband return from Florida but just wanted to know beforehand so I can help her with her genealogical research. Thank you.

Can you tell me where you got the information regarding his full name and place of birth. Samuel Henderson Brewer is my great great grandfather. I kind of doubt there are 2 of them born so closely together in time and place, but want to make as sure as I can, that this S H Brewer is my Samuel Henderson Brewer.
