Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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 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.

RE: Cody Allen in Itasca Cemetery
Cody Allen's parents are Debbie Johnson Allen Whitson & Dennis Allen. Dennis Allen is still living. I worked with Debbie for 30 years and she passed away in 2009. She only had one son and the father to the son was Dennis Allen. Cody died in a car accident. Debbie was a Johnson before she married Dennis Allen then she married Jim Whitson. Debbie, Jim and Cody are buried in the Itasca Cemetery.

RE: James Roy Irvin in Itasca Cemetery
Not a problem. Over time I have made a few myself and always appreciate when someone brings it to my attention.

You are very welcome. I live close to Otterbourne and was passing through yesterday on my way back from taking the dog for a walk at Hunters Park in Twyford.

Memorial# 48816184
I have been trying to find my grand-dad's grave in the Itasca Cemetery, but was unsuccessful. The memorial lists his location as Plot I3. Where is the map kept that shows how the plots are laid out? Me and my dad searched for hours and I'm sure we just missed it. We did find my great-grandmother #48816186 and her daughters in the Patterson Plot D2. I seem to have lots of family there that I never knew of. The photos you took are very lovely but I just wanted to see for myself.
Thanks for your work documenting them.
