I live in Texas City Galveston County. We have pictures of every cemetery in Galveston County with the exception of Mount Olivet which is being done by another club. So I have the pictures already. These pics belong to the public use as you wish but this is not for commercial use on paid websites. Will be happy to transfer any memorials to family members.

Hello Floyd,

Please transfer to me my grandfather's grave, Johnnie Lee Young Sr, (# 112747517) and Uncle Willie Lee Young Sr (# 112748567) to ensure I can update this information accurately as needed.

Also, contributor, patrick deatherage is deceased and was for some reason handling my aunt, Bertha L Young Hennix (# 75040629) grave. I have sent find a grave a message asking to transfer this grave over to me. Are you handling Patrick Deaterage grave sites now? If so please transfer over to me my aunt, Bertha L Young Hennix grave so I can manage and ensure information and bios are update to reflect accurate information.

RE: Bomar in Spartanburrg County, SC
I am sorry, but I forgot what message I sent you. Were you trying to locate where some Martins were buried, or did I ask about the Bomars?

Bomar in Spartanburrg County, SC
I am trying to trace my Bomar relatives. I think but am not sure but I might know the burial site of Elizabeth Bomar and her 2nd husband John P Martin. There is a cemetery down the road from where I live. It is called Greenville Presbyterian Church.The county might be Greenwood County (or possibly Abbeville County but it is at the edge of Ware Shoals, Greenwood, SC and Hodges, Greenwood, SC and I think I remember seeing the name of Polly Martin. Would like to hear from you.

RE: Memorial # 125480758
From what I read about the history of Oleander Cemetery, those buried here began in the 1900's, except for those who were buried here when it was called Potter's Field, for the poor. Michael Seeligson died in 1867 but was definitely not poor, so for his gravestone to be in Oleander's Cemetery doesn't seem to fit. Since he was Jewish, I would have though he would be buried in the Jewish Benevolent cemetery which is one other section nearby Oleander's. So when you say Hebrew #1 Cemetery is a part of Oleander, is it contained within that exact section as indicated on the aerial map I provided a link to in my previous message, or is Hebrew #1 really in that section squared off in the aerial view as the Jewish Benevolent Cemetery? It appears from the aerial view that there are about 7 sections all connected but squared off with different names and given the large number of total graves in all these sections, I really do want to narrow down the search area if I visit. I appreciate your patience with my continued questions. I just need to understand that Hebrew #1 is actually another sub-section of that squared off area in the aerial photo indicated as Oleander Cemetry but not in the adjacent Jewish Benevolent Cemetery sectioned off area.
Thank you again for helping me to be clear on this.

Memorial # 125480758
You added the memorial and gravestone photo for Memorial #125480758 which is for Michael Seeligson and is listed as being in Oleander Cemetery in Galveston. When I look at an aerial view of the groupings of cemeteries, all together, their is an Oleander section but also a Hebrew Benevolence section and another record indicates Michael was Jewish and buried in Hebrew #1 section. So, I'm confused as to which section to search for him if I make a trip to this cemetery. Can you help me clear this up? Thanks so much. The aerial view photo is at this link;

Thank you!

I appreciate you taking the time to re-post your photo of double headstone on memorial of husband.
I am related to wife but as I worked on this sight, I realized how many members of the Hegmann famile lost love ones in the 1900 Hurricane in Galveston.
Thanks, Virginia Lee Brown
