Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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 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.Cora

Hello Cora;

Thank you for taking on the project of documenting the cemetery in Dalhart. The Tovrea family is one of my branches on my family tree. Would you please consider transferring Find a Grave memorial # 51669857, William Elwood Tovrea, to me? He is a cousin. I have some information I would like to add.

Thank you for your consideration,

Carol Muery

RE: Pearl lamkin
I'm not relatead to Pearl Lamkin, but distantly related to her husband, Joseph Edward Lamkin. If your aunt is interested in sharing, pass her on to me.

RE: Pearl lamkin
I have DOB 29 June 1884, DOD July 1977. I was hoping a photo would confirm. Thanks.

RE: Transfer...
Both my Uncle Jiggs and Aunt Ruth came through fine. Thank you so much for your research.
I probably would never have found them, otherwise.

Thank you. I would like to manage the page for Martha Lou Hine. She was my former mother-in-law. I was married to her son for 23 years!
