Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a native Texan, born in Gainesville, Cooke, County, Texas on 3 March 1945. I enlisted in the U.S. Air Force and served from 1964-1968. I made my living as a mechanical engineer for Bell Helicopter for 41 years and am now enjoying retirement. My interest in genealogy was really kindled when my father died in 1978 and I inherited boxes and boxes of documents.

Antioch missionary baptist church cemetery
I got all my pictures added to that cemetery. I requested one death date be added and one maiden name be added that is kin to a friend and she told what it was, plus I got the 8 memorials I created deleted. I asked one person to move their memorial and they have. I am investigating 2 memorials that I think need to be deleted because the people are still alive. I'm pretty sure one is, if it is who I was told it was.

I thought that was a separate cemetery, but I didn't want to take the time to try to get over 200 memorials moved. So I just left it alone and fixed the way I knew how. I don't envy you this job. This is why I told my husband I wasn't doing any virtual cemeteries. If I don't physically walk in the cemetery and see the marker or find a death certificate saying that's where they are I'm leaving it alone. My part will be fixed soon.

I checked both memorials and they were the same person. The information came from a cemetery book and it may have been listed twice. Who knows. I deleted the more recent one. I have no information on this person. Thanks for the heads up. Janine

Looks like all the ones I did need to be deleted and pictures added to the other one. And I have to ask for a couple of updates on some and we'll be good. I have to wait until tomorrow though, since my pictures are now on my flash drive instead of phone. You sound like me, out trying to fix people's mistakes. When I first started I had 15 people to get moved from one cemetery into another. I believe you have a lot more than I did to get moved or deleted.

I will do that tomorrow and move the new ones I created to the right place. I messaged find a grave telling them I thought it was a separate cemetery and posted new pictures for the cemetery. The find a grave app on my phone didn't show that and I didn't realize someone had there was already a cemetery in there by the right name. Thanks for pointing out to me that it was.

Do you know the nearest town to the farm that has David M. Billings' grave? I put Beaver just to do the memorial but not sure of the town.

RE: Edna Patterson

Thank you for the info. I agree that Laura is indeed the mother n law of JRM Patterson. I am going to give you access to my tree and you can see better what I have found. Then maybe we can help each other in some way to gather additional info on our ancestry, especially in the Gainesville area.

Thank you for your input and help.
