Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became interested in genealogy and discovered Find A Grave while searching for information on my ancestors. I am researching my paternal family of WEBB, SNODGRASS, REDSHAW, KESSLER, CARPENTER, HILL, and maternal family of FLEET, ALSTON, JAMES, KARNEY, WOLFE, HARGROVE, SANDERS and CADENHEAD. It's been a long journey and I still have pieces of the puzzle to fit together. I would like to thank all the volunteers that have helped me complete my family memorials. I was so excited to receive a response from my first photo request that I wanted to do the same for others. As a result, my husband and I have become photo volunteers. As weather permits, we find ourselves going to local cemeteries, taking headstone photos, and then entering the information on Find A Grave. I guess you could say our hobby is "grave walking". It is a rewarding service to do. If anyone detects errors in my entries, please notify me and I will make corrections. Do not hesitate to ask for a transfer of a memorial that is your family. I will be glad to do so, UNLESS, it should be my immediate family,as it is always a work in progress. No need to ask permission to use my photos. I believe photos and information for genealogy purposes should be shared. I think when we share information about our family, it enables us to discover more about our long lost loved ones and make connections we might not have, otherwise, found.

John Fleet/Elmwood
Complicated. John Fleet is actually buried in Fowler Public Lot #4, Sp. 346. He was buried on 1-3-1878 and so likely died the day before. There is no marker for him. This area is currently referred to as "No Man's Land" because the area was turned into a series of mass graves for the Yellow Fever Victims who died in the Fall of 1878. Dying in January, he would not have been one of those. I attached a picture of this area.

RE: Martha A. Russell Headstone Photo
Hello again! I just wanted to relay some information that I found out regarding your relative's tombstone. I talked to the gentleman that surveyed the Williamson Creek Cemetery a few years ago & he told me that he had been working with the Austin Historical Commission to record the burials in some of Austin's cemeteries (including this one). He said that there may be a better picture (an older picture) of Ms. Russell's tombstone but he wasn't exactly sure.
He took pictures of all the tombstones he could find back then, after mowing/cleaning up the site after years of neglect & then he surveyed it. His name is Dale Flatt & he started the Save Austin Cemeteries group. Their website is:

Just thought I would pass that tidbit of information on in case you were interested.....
