Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi, I have been doing genealogy for over 35 years and have been a volunteer for Parker, Wise, Tarrant and Jack Counties of many years. I am working with the Springtown-Goshen Cemetery Association to make a registry of their cemetery. I am currently transcribing the Springtown and Goshen Cemeteries in Parker County with all photos from the cemetery. I also have photos from several other cemeteries in the Parker County area, Turner, Opal, and Central. I also have photos from Jack County and Wise.

Mayda Viola Funchess Hinkle
I am a PARKER, too!!!

Thank you for going out to Springtown Cemetery! I am sorry to find out the office has no record of her being there. Her husband, Willie Hinkle is there and has a grave marker. His memorial with the picture is on Find A Grave. I just sent a message to the person who created the memorial for Mayda in the Springtown Cemetery to give me some insight as to the memorial. I looked up Mayda's parents and siblings and they are all in Paradise Cemetery.

I tried to get a photo. But Lynn Creek Cemetery says no one buried there by that name. His death certificate says he died in Odessa, Ector Texas and body removal to Monroe Louisiana. There is a memorial there with photo of grave for George E Shields #20549372 (same dates)Hasley Cemetery, West Monroe, Ouachita Parish, Louisiana, USA

So can you confirm this one is incorrect and remove memorial. I don't think you can do this,
I think the originator of the memorial will need to unless you know how to get findagrave to do it.

interesting bit of news
I was just looking over your Find A Grave for Eugene L. Brady and the information you have.
One bit of information you have, I don't - I read your bio and understand that you more of an expert at this than I am, so can you confirm John C. Brady into the list of Brady's I have, because all, except one connects to my tree. I would like to let you know exactly how much information I have if you are interesting in a little bit of news.

Hattie Lou Kirkland Bobo
Hattie Lou Kirkland Bobo; buried somewhere in headstone found.

You mentioned the 1930 census with a sidenote at the end regarding Georgia L., age one.

"1930 Census for Haskell County shows, B. F. (Perry Franklin)Kirkland (69) Louisiana with wife Cloa (Demerice Thomas) age 40, C*A V daughter age 15, Weldon D (son) age 16, Hattie L Kirkland age 11, Roberta L. age 9, Johnnie P, age 8, Raymond C. age 6 and Georgia L age 1. Birth certificate for Georgia Lee Kirkland b. Mar 24, 1928 in Hall county have parents as Curtis Kirkland and Lola May Cook"

The Georgia L. on this census is not Georgia Lee. The initial "L." stands for "Levada", b. Feb 14, 1929 in Haskell County, TX. You'll be able to find the correct birth certificate (#14235) which shows Georgia Levada Kirkland; place of birth: Haskell County, TX; Father: P. F. Kirkland; Mother: Cloa Thomas

Additional source, personal family knowledge of Georgia L. Kirkland.

Hope this helps.

It appears there are two records for this person in the Porter Cemetery, Parker County, TX I have recently added names and photos of two infants who died at birth which list her as the mother. I could not find the father, William Benton Porter. I linked the children to one of the entries. Could you please delete #22685326.

Thank you.
