I love history, particularly family history. I also like to walk through cemeteries reading epitaphs and finding interesting graves. I find it very rewarding to help others in their search for family and would love to help those on this site.|
Most of the memorials that I mangage are family members I've discovered in my family history research. Those that are not family are grave sites that I felt compelled to photograph or obits I have come across. I am also drawn to graves of people who died pre-1910 and I want to be sure that they are recorded before their graves fall in to total oblivion.
Please feel free to use any of the photos I've taken. They do not belong to me, but to those who love the dearly departed.
Please let me know if I have added someone that is in your family. It is not my intent to offend or trespass on other's loved ones.
All memorials are added to honor those who have gone before us and to serve as a resource for future generations in their search of family history.
God Bless :)

Well I don't know that I'd agree but thank you. I do know what it's like to want a piece of missing family/very dear to me history found & I wish I could help everyone find who they're looking for. It may not be the person but it's a sense of peace/resolve I guess, for lack of a better description. My Dad & Uncle had another brother who died in infancy and I've not been able to find any RECORD of the baby. I realize in those times, SSN's werent applied for/issued right away as they are now but id think there would be SOME record. My Dad & Uncle are both gone now so I really have zero resources except for more research I can try. So if I can help ANYONE fill in the unknown, I always will.

I've arrived at Bluebonnet Hills & although I've been here before, it was years ago. Consequently, I forgot how large the cemetery is. Do you have any idea which section Mr. Leadabrand is in? I went inside the funeral home & asked if they could help but was told they don't release that information. So, if you can be of ANY assistance, I'd be grateful.

I never knew William, my grandmother was a daughter of his brother John. I have photo of John on his memorial, # 38446211. I also have a photo of John when he was about seventy I'm guessing. I can send you a copy if you think that would help.
