Hello everyone,I am Cora Lee Reeves and I am researching the Reeves, Girard, Edmonds and Joplin family lines on my tree. All info you would like to share is very welcome. I am proud to say I have finished documenting the Dalhart Cemetery. I asked City Hall for the records of all the graves they have on file which runs from as far back as the records go to 10-2012. For records more current you can call City Hall or go to the website www.horizonfuneral.com and find who you are looking for there. Please feel free to ask me to transfer memorial pages if you are a relative. Please let me know of any corrections to be made or information you would like to add. If you have a loved one you think is buried in Dalhart before 1932 and I haven't made a memorial page for them, it is probably due to the court house burning to the ground in 1932 and all records were lost. If they were buried after that date I may have skipped a name or lost the name in transition. You can contact the Dalhart City Hall to double check and also the court house may have a record. Dalhart sits on the county line between Dallam and Hartley counties and there are many towns and communities in each county. This is due mostly because of the rail road. The train had to stop every ten miles so small communities formed every ten miles as the trains went farther some of the communities died out. For the most part the graveyards in these areas were family graves yard and are now on private land and/or lost. Some remain but have not been maintained and markers have been lost. Many who have Dalhart as the burial place where somewhere in those areas. Texline, Hartley, and Channing have cemeteries still standing and in use that are confused with Dalhart as well. My goal in doing this is to make a town "family" tree by connecting the people buried in the graveyard to their families as well as connect the roots to where they came from and went too if/where possible. I know there are doubles of some memorial pages so if you find them please let me know using the memorial page suggestion link so that I can delete the doubles. If they are not side by side I may not realize they are doubled. Thank you for all the help and support you have shown to me and this project. I hope I help others the way they have helped me in my research.
Also if I have doubles of my own memorials or doubled a memorial of a previous memorial please let me know so I can delete them. We are currently working on deleting the doubles in the Dalhart, Hartley and Channing Cemertaries.
Thank you for all the help with pictures, links, dates, places and obituaries!!! All information is welcome!

Channing Cemetery I'm reviewing the Channing cemetery for accuracy and duplicates. I have sent you a lot of edits. Please feel free to ask me if you have any questions. Also, any information that you have on your memorials, please submit it to the existing memorial before deleting yours.
Thank you so much for all you do for Find A Grave and for tackling Memorial in Dalhart!!!
I just wanted to let you know that I'm not stalking your memorials, just a certain cemetery! :)
RE: Hello from Dalhart Thanks for the heads up about the number. I appreciate it. My family, Jake L. Ensz's parents, moved to Dallam County in the 1970s. They first lived near Dalhart, then near Hartley. I have not heard of the Bunker Hill Mennonites. They most likely were not Holdeman Mennonites like the Ensz family.
Lol Hey!! I don't know if you've noticed, but there is a new person, named Family History that has made 10 memorials, 8 of them being duplicates. I sent them a message on each one. I went out to the cemetery the other day. I'm ready for fall, maybe we can get together & finishing taking photos!! Ttyl!!
Mary Joplin #19720009 Hi, sorry to have taken so long to respond. I tried to edit the links that are posted for her spouses but my edit page shows no links so this means the links were made from another memorial page. I'd like to help, but there seems to be nothing I can do from this end.
Channing Cemetery I live in Channing and have added names and photos of the cemetery here. You have added several names that our records nor tombstones support. We would be interested in any documentation that you have to verify these people are buried in our cemetery.
