I can attempt to locate graves in most cemeteries in/near Rusk County TX.

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations per F.A.G. guidelines.

If you find a memorial I've submitted needs to be updated or corrected, contact me using the EDIT tab on the memorial page so your request will be linked. We all occasionally make mistakes, and I certainly don't want a memorial I've set up to contain the wrong information. Please do not hold back with correction requests!

I have no copyrights on photos taken by me, so feel free to use them.

F.A.G. guidelines do not allow survivors to be posted on the memorial page; therefore, I will not post them without permission from the family.

Thanks, Lisa! I had tried that first back Feb. 12th and hadn't heard back. So I thought I'd try this way instead. Must have wound up in your spam folder.

Her name was Mary Elizabeth, but she was called Betty, short for Elizabeth. Junius and Betty are my great grandfather's sister and her husband.

Thank You
Lisa --

Thank you so much for photographing Bill Ruthford's marker. That will mean a lot to many folks who will visit his memorial. Do you live in Rusk County? Many years ago I lived in Rusk County just west of Minden. I was working in Longview. It's a beautiful area.

Thank you Lisa.

I knew nothing of the 1937 New London School Gas Explosion until this morning while researching my husband's family. Joe was one of the few survivors. His brother Thomas Blanton Rogers was one of the 298+ killed.

I am just shocked to read about this, and I am a 5th generation Texan.

Thank you again for answering my question.

Hi Lisa,

Do you recall if your photo of Joe Hudnall Rogers Find A Grave #194027 is a plague on a crypt?

Thank you for your time.
