Bio and Links
Bio Photo One of my passions is genealogy and I enjoy researching the roots of my family.

Information is welcomed about the HADLEY family in LEE COUNTY, MISSISSIPPI; the TABB family in GRIMES COUNTY, TEXAS; the ALLEN family and DICKERSON family in AUSTIN COUNTY, TEXAS and OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA; as well as the GREER family and WHITE family in FALLS COUNTY, TEXAS.

In an attempt to address the March 2012 encroachment and desecration at St. Mary Cemetery, located on Hughes Cemetery Road near the towns of Avalon, Forreston, and Italy in Ellis County, Texas, I am verifying and recording the burials at that historic location.

I respectfully request that you NOT ADD DEATH CERTIFICATE scans to my memorials...

I have added a headstone photo for Sadie Clatter and the DOB is not the same as the date on the headstone but posted it anyway. I know this is the correct headstone due to her husbands name and dates. Just letting you know there is a difference on then.

RE: Carver Cemetry
Hope you are doing well. I've sent you a few edits where the dates on the tombstones don't match the dates on the death certificates. Always a judgment call on which is right. I just finished adding the LAST 30 memorials of the pictures I took recently. I THINK I have all the marked graves as of this moth. There are now @3850 memorials in Carver, 90% of them mine. Didn't realize it was going to be this big a project or I might have had 2nd thoughts.
Just a few more photos then I'll call it a job FINISHED.
Take Care.

RE: Carver Memorial Cemetery
I took 1200 pictures yesterday at Carver. That should be all the visible tombstones. Many unmarked graves. It will take me 2-3 weeks to get them all loaded with pictures so check back every now and then to see what I've accomplished.

Thank you again for accepting my friendship at FaceBook, replying to my request, giving me management rights and ALL that you do to preserve our heritage. :)
The relatives of mine in the Luke Tipton Cemetery that I would like to manage that you have are:

Henry Shaw - 116623434
George Anderson - 123071453
James Anderson - 117144805
Joe Arthur Anderson - 124087019

Yes, I am very familiar with the families that you mentioned. Although I was born in Grandview, my maternal roots are in Itasca where I was raised.

I have "liked" St Mary's on Facebook and I'm thinking about creating a Luke Tipton soon as I get some time. :)

Again, Thank you for all that you do.

Luke Tipton Cemetery - Itasca
Thank you for all of the work you have done with the photos and identification of my family members in the Luke Tipton Cemetery here in Itasca. I just found "Find A Grave" a couple of days ago and am looking for more photos to upload. :)

Are you related to any of the people here in Itasca?

RE: Mack/Rosa Coffee Headstone Photo
I have viewed MANY death certificates and have found a LOT of incorrect information on them as most of it comes from what family remember. Several times I have also came across incorrect dates listed on headstones which also comes from what family remember.

I personnaly have used what is listed on a persons headstone because most of the time it is info that comes from a better source of a persons information.

When you dont have older family members here anymore to ask it is hard to know just what information to use.

Good luck with it....!

Appreciate the kind words about my work at the cemetery.
Yes, when I first bombarded U with so much irrelevant info I mistakenly thought they were family members, sorry about that. But the legwork was so much fun. HA !!!
I have walked it 3X and all readable markers are accounted for so sorry to say the other 10 or will remain unmarked and unlocated.
Thanks for your input, James Coston

RE: Ethel Cyrus Lowe Wright
I have about 90% of Carver photographed. The weather here is so bad it may be 2 weeks before I can get back out there. F-A-G still has not responded to my request to merge the 70+ entries for Carver Cemetery, Ennis TX (no such place) and the lady that added those memorials has not responded either. So we have a few duplications.

Mack/Rosie Coffee photo
Today I posted a headstone photo in the two memorials for Mack Coffee #117153340 and Rosie Coffee #116977004. After looking at the Date of birth on both of them I now am not sure this is the correct photo.

Also her name on the headstone is "Rosie" and in the memorial it is Rose.
The Dates of Death are the same but not the Dates of Birth. I do know many times information from Death Certificates are incorrect. I have came across it many times in my searches.

They are buried in Section 60 of the cemetery if this is the same people.

Please check it out and let me know if the headstone photo is not the correct one. If not then I will be happy to remove it.
