|Bio and Links|
I am a retired engineer who spent career working in Houston, TX at oil & gas equipment design.|
My early years/schooling were in Files Valley, TX, just east of Itasca in Hill County, TX. There is a cemetery there that my Dad kept records on in spiral notebook. After his death, I realized that the notebook with all his notes on who was buried where was lost. In 2007, I began recording the Files Valley Cemetery with friends living in the area. When we completed that, and uploaded to internet websites, we proceeded to add memorials to many cemeteries in NE Hill County.
Bonnie (Wife) and I have been researching our families - McEver, Robinson, Allen, Pruett, & Jordan.
My interest in genealogy comes from making contact with special distant cousins, Maurice Allen, Vicki Bullard and others. We've created a family tree at ancestry.com website.
A final thought on what FindAGrave means to me. It is an excellent tool for preserving the documentation (memorializing)of those who have gone before us. To this end, it doesn't matter to me who owns photos, copyrights, etc. Feel free to use what I provide to FindAGrave for the purpose stated above. It would be nice to receive recognition.

|Raven Smith Millwood||RE: Richard H Allen Photo|
your very welcome
|Kevin Finch||RE: Joseph & Norma Allen|
I just received a call from Nina at Ojai City Hall, and she tells me they have no records for the Allen's. Are you sure of the cemetery? If you receive additional info. On them let me know and I will continue my search.
|Kevin Finch||Joseph & Norma Allen|
I claimed your request for Joseph & Norma Allen, sometime back. This particular cemetery is overgrown, and seldom maintained . Plots are unmarked, and difficult to find without a map, which I have.
I can usually find them though the Ventura County Genological Society web site, which will list the name and plot #, then I can narrow it down on my map, and find them. However, they are not listed on the site at all. The only other way to try and find them is by calling the Ojai City Hall Public Works, and talk to Nina, at (805) 646-5581, x-200.
I left voicemails for her last week, and have not received a call back. I will try again today, but if I don't hear back by the end of the day, I will report your request as a problem.

Yes you should link her to both husbands if you can
|Cathy Creger Shelley||RE: Follow Up again|
That is probably the best way so people aren't confused
|Danny Chancellor||RE: Baker Memorial|
My own personal belief and proved to be right in several instances is that information on a stone or death certificate is only as good as the informants memory. I have made the suggested change and added a note to the bio.
|Kara Haygood Geilman||Davis. Family|
Do you have any Information on the Davis Family in Itasca, When They Arrived. I noticed a lot of Davis's buried there. Also, ever come across a picture of Melissa Calista Davis Haygood in your travel's. She is one elusive Grandma.
|Karen Attaway||re: Coplands in Itasca Cemetery|
Yes. I will look and see what photos and information I have on the Copeland family. I may also have information on some of the Barron family (Itasca Cemetery) and Major family as well. I think at least 2 of the Major family members may have been buried in the Covington Cemetery. I have an old family Bible to work with as well as my grandparents' (James Alvis and Alice Louise Copeland)photo and document archive.
|Karen Attaway||RE: Copelands in Itasca Cemetery|
Thank you! I will continue to work on the Copelands as I have time.
