|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 that prefer to remain un-named. 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.

Thanks for the reminder to add the picture. I should have thought of it, but didn't. I will take a new pic to add once his death date is added to the headstone.

You are very welcome! I live about 5 minutes from that cemetery.

I posted the photo of Julia McEver. The stone is about 18 inches from a fence, which is why I had to take it from an angle to get the whole stone in the photo.

My name is Jayne Kimbrell Jones and I am related to most of the Kimbrell's in the Itasca Cemetary. I have recently gotten interested in developing my family tree in Ancestry.com, and while researching Find A Grave I noticed that my Aunt Elsie's name is listed as "Elsa." Would it be possible to correct the spelling of her name? If so, I thank you in advanceand appreciate your help.

This headstone appears to be for George Washington Stanley 1827-1888. If you are on ancestry.com my SKSmith Fmily Tree is No. 28045406.
When you were at the cemetery did you notice a headstone for his wife Emily? Her data: Emily A D Deavours Stanley, born 03 Jan 1840 in MS, died 28 Jun 1910 in TX and with the maiden name of Clifton. According to her obituary she was also buried there but the obit didn't mention her husband. The photo of the cemetery and the fact that there is no phone number to call make me feel like it is on private property. Thus, I didn't feel comfortable in setting her up on Find a Grave and requesting a photo of her headstone to prove she was there.
