Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi, my name is Debbie and I live in Fort Worth, Texas.

Thanks to my father's passion for old cemeteries, I have always been a graver at heart.

I take pictures with a great deal of respect for those who have walked before us. If I manage a memorial of a direct relative of yours (within four generations), please email me and I will transfer ownership. Please note that I reserve the right to maintain my own ancestors memorials. Also, feel free to use any of my headstone photos for your genealogy website or any other legitimate purpose.

I would like to thank all the wonderful people I have meet along the way, photo volunteers and cemetery transcribers that have help me with my own genealogy.

I'm researching the Gibbons, Sparks, Hendricks and Collins, in or around Denton County, Texas; The Crawley, Dean, Dickson, Rayburn, Riley and Brackett families from Grayson, Collin, Floyd, Crosby, Potter, County, Texas and Harmon County, Oklahoma.

Most Wanted - If anyone with information on William Jordon Dickson, Sr. (b) 1860, in Lafayette, Mississippi and lived in Grayson, Collin, Floyd, Crosby and Terry, Texas from 1900 - 1941, please let me know. William (d) June 30, 1941 in Brownfield, Terry County, Texas. He was married to Lee Riley (d) 1909 and widow Maud Shackelford Moran (d) 1955 in Kern County, California.

Please contact me via the SAC tab ("Edit" then "Suggest A Correction") on any memorial I have created. PLEASE DO NOT send transfer requests, relationship links or additional information for memorials via the public messages option.

Carla's Bio
Dear Debbie...I thought you might would find the following info interesting on how Carla's death occurrred: On the evening of March 25, 1985, Ronald Allridge, 24, along with three other accomplices, stepped into the Whataburger on 125 Sycamore School Road in Fort Worth to commit armed robbery. Carla Sue McMillen Otto, 19, was eating a sandwich with Lisa Jenkins, a close friend, when they were confronted by Allridge. As he approached them, he threw a black bag on the table and said, “Fill it up with all you have.” In an attempt to raise her hands to show him that she had nothing, Allridge shot her in the chest with a 16-gauge shotgun. She died instantly.
Carla Sue Otto and Carla McMillen are the same person. Not sure why the papers didn't list her name as Otto. I worked with Carla's dad, Deputy Otto, at the Tarrant County Sheriff's Office about 1 year after her murder and we would talk to about it. I thought you might want to enter this in her bio. Thank you...

Meroney memorials & photo fix
Hi Debbie.
I fixed the mixup of James' photo and fulfilled your requests that I had photos for. Also on the cemetery list is a Martha Ann Meroney with no dates inscribed as "Gone But Not Forgotten" and "Erected by H.B. Rouse." Would you want to create a memorial for that one? I have the photo. I hope to get back to the cemetery as soon as the rain clears up here.

Regards,
Joy

RE: Col John A. Meroney
Oh, sorry. I'll fix that. I took photos of all the Meroney markers I could read. Let me see what I have. Also, I'm working with a new photo editor and am hoping the photos will be up to my own standards.

Wow, I have encountered several people with two headstones (usually in different cemeteries), but this the first time I ever found someone with three!
Thanks for your reply and assistance.

Memorial No. 100474908 in the Mount Olivet Cemetery, Fort Worth.
I tried to send a correction request via the edit tab, but that doesn't seem to be working for written correction requests.
I don't think Homer Page Godbey is buried in the Mount Olivet Cemetery. He has TWO different headstones in the Springtown Cemetery, in Springtown, Parker, Texas. One of them does not list his date of death. The other one does. He is actually buried under the headstone in Springtown that gives both his birth and death dates.
Do you have a source for his burial in Mount Olivet?
Thank you for taking the time to read and consider this.
All the best,
Rick Miller
