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: Brooks Lacey, Lamon Cemetery
Thanks James,
No, I'm not related. I can't even remember why I was studying Brooks Lacey. I can't find him in any of my trees on But I'm glad you found the cemetery!

Thank you so much for posting the photos of both Mary E. Smart and Richard Hudson Smart as well as including nearby graves which turned out to be son and daughter-in-law Jeff Smart and Daisy Fox Smart. What a help that was! Now I will request an edit from the person who created the Memorial to include birth and death dates since they are on the tombstones you posted photos of.
With warm regards,
Janet Mullins Ward

Wimberly plot
Hello James,
On grave site #100427749, you have listed as Ninniola Wimberly. I am one of the oldest left and I believe I remember the family talking about a Minniola Wimberly. I have visited the cemetery twice and I am so drawn to it. I live in Pflugerville but would love to be involved in a restoration group. Hopewell is the burial place of my oldest known ancestors on that side of the family (so far).

thank you for your efforts and work,
Deborah Mathews

RE: J.B. Lee
I guess findagrave didn't approve the map. It was not my original photograph which is their requirements. Oh well...I can publish it here locally. On the 1857, that was his child not him. Take care. Linda

RE: Leroy Tackitt, Fort Parker, TX

Leroy "Lee" was my grandfather's half-brother. The family has known where he was buried because of family members who attended the burial who were still alive when I was a child. I have intended to get a marker placed there but have yet to do that mostly because I was hoping to have an exact birth date.. As for the lot #, that came from the plat at the entrance of the cemetery. My grandfather was too small to remember where his parents were buried out there unfortunately and as I understand it, the record of interments was lost. Thanks for the message.
