William M. Groves
William's mother, Mary Ellen Huffty (Hufty) is buried in Pine Crest Cemetery, Atlanta, Cass, TX. No grave marker is shown there for his father, Thomas R. Groves.

William M. Groves married Pearl Henry in Cass Co., TX on 2 Sep 1902.

Pearl's father William Asberry Henry is buried in Pine Crest Cemetery, Atlanta, Cass, TX also along with his 2nd wife, Ellen Augusta 'Gussie' Moore. William and Gussie married 11 Dec 1895 in Hot Springs, Garland, AR. William's 1st wife, Mary Ellen Baucum, is probably buried in Webster Par., LA where they were living during the 1880 Census.

Gravestone Photo Permission
I am happy to see that you photographed the gravestone of Vivien Alford in Forest Park East Cemetery (Memorial# 46117486).

I would like to add this gravestone photo to the (non-profit) Alford American Family Association's collection of Texas Obituaries, where her obituary will be included. You can see the current collection at

May I have your permission to include your gravestone photos? If so, the photo caption will say:

Photo from [cemetery name, city, county, state]—
Permission granted by the photographer, tisanders [or your name if you prefer]

And thanks so much for your gravestone photo work!

Best regards,
Pamela Alford Thompson (Find A Grave #47195155)

Thank you for all you do for find-a-grave! Thank you for creating the memorial for Jacob Oliver Mull. Wish Ruth Harris and daughter Elimira had a tombstone and could be added. Their children are listed in Ruth's father Benjamin Harris' Will in Jackson Co., NC.

Nell Turner White, #49588988

I have a question for you.

It looks like you have two memorials for
Nell Turner White, #49588987 and #49588988.

The only difference with them is they have different birth/death dates.

The reason I'm asking about the dupes is I've created a memorial for Lillie Turner White, #141400227 in the Groveton Cemetery and she has the same dates as your memorial ending 8988 and she's in the Glenwood Cemetery. Another volunteer brought this to my attention so I went back to to verify Lillie's dates and burial location on her death certificate and they verified. Would you mind looking at your memorial ending 8988 and see it should be deleted. I think your memorial ending 8987 is your correct one.

Thanks for your time,

You created memorial #112829793 and posted a picture of the headstone. It is an interesting headstone. It is for the mother of my cousin Robert Douglas Gilbert and the parents of his wife. I could not locate memorials for the parents of his wife so I have created the memorials and wonder if you would post the photo to their memorials, #149210659 & #149212053.

Thanks for being a find a grave volunteer and congratulations on being a 7th generation native Texan. I am only 5th generation native. My third great-grandfather fought at San Jacinto. He was not a native but he got here as fast as he could.
