Bio and Links
Bio Photo US NAVY 1966-1968 Silent Service
Radio operator on (2) submarines & a supply ship.
Duty stations in order of service:
Main ID card VA & proud Navy Veteran !!
I specalize in babies (because they never got a chance) and veterans (because they gave us the chances that we have).
I'm hampered by 14K dial-up, so putting in fotos takes a while, be patient.
As a result of sub-service speed, I do most of my postings between 0400-0700 Texas time when internet usage is at a minimum.
Retired from GTE dba Verizon in Plano, Tx in 2007 after 27 years.
The dog in the foto is Precious, she is my constant traveling companion, mess with me and she goes into action, for real. !!!

Later, James Coston

RE: Alta Ridge 1922-2010 Mexia Cem
If you read the obituary it probably is the same person. One just has her 2nd married last name and the headstone has her first married name. Not sure what you want to do about it.
Thanks Dorothy

Herod Phioto's at Richland
Thank you for the great photos. I like how you took time to include a photo of the by grave area. This would be helpful in finding the grave and I am going to borrow your idea. I am joining the DAR (Wax) and using the Herod lineage as my link. Getting as many updates for Herod is helpful and headstone pictures are helpful.

Photo of Headstone -
Thank you so much for the headstone photo of my cousin Buddy Penland (#99232141). I was at Cotton Gin Cemetery two years ago for his burial, but have not been able to get back there for photos. I really appreciate your service to our country and its other veterans. Good luck in your pursuits! Helen Dearing #46891676

David and Caroline Charles
Thanks so much for taking photos of my 3rd great grandparents markers. It is very much appreciated and helped solve Caroline's place of birth. I had always thought she was born in Georgia.

Earnest Harris at Cotton Gin
In looking at my tree, I see I'm going to have to check the death date. Ernest was 5 years old in the 6-1900 Robertson Co census, then no listing of him in his family 1910 Census in Navarro Co TX. I'm going to ck with the lady who put it on Cotton Gin and see if she can provide information as to where she found the parents. His mom was Lina (Sarah Emiline (Lina) Honea, Harris. There are "Harris" located at Cotton Gin, so I'll check also my tree and see if any other connection. Thanks Again, hopefully this will lead to more information.

Earnest Harris Cotton Gin Cemetery
Thanks you soooooooo much for the photo. Am I correct that his grave is the one by the tree? I noticed the other photo showed some graves to the right, did you happen to notice the names on them, just cking to see if any were "Harris".
Also may I add the photos to my family tree. Your name and date taken will be shown.

Thanks Again, Wasn't sure we'd ever have a marker photo for him.
