Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thanks to EVERYONE who has helped add information and links to the memorials in Polk County. Everyone deserves a tribute and hopefully this information will help someone in their research. A special thanks to NOLLENE MARSH (1951-2016) for all the links and information that she has provided.

Please tell us about yourself in the BIO AND LINKS SECTION.
I began researching my family in about 2003. Some of the Surnames are McCraney, Williamson, Lott, Brock, Lakey, Smith, Turner and Jones. I grew up in Polk Co., TX and discovered most of my ancestors came by way of Mississippi or Alabama.

Surnames on my husband's side are Gregorcyk, Hirscy, Walker, Shives and Bluntzer.

Thanks to the people who share their information, I have been able to find an amazing amount on the Internet. The research can become addictive and never ending; there is always more to the story.

It is not my intent to offend anyone. If I have posted information that you want removed…please ask.

RE: Berlin Carr Memorial# 36424024
Thought that I had sent SAC's to Jill Nelson about the family plot markers for which she created "Memorials". Either I deleted those or never sent any. A search of Bluff Creek Cemetery for the last name "Unknown" yields 42 total matches. Jill may have more questionable Memorials that don't have "Unknown" as their last name.

I did try to enlist the help of Find A Grave Support over one year ago. And now that I'm going back over this issue, I find that Support did delete the following three "Memorials":
Unknown 8 B plot 60 Walker
Unknown 8 B plot 61 Walker
Unknown 7 B plot 62 Walker

I'll now revert to seeking Support's help. I will also send SAC's to Jill Nelson as needed. And if you can let me know of an expert on Bluff Creek Cemetery, then I'd appreciate that.

Thanks so much, Virginia. I had overlooked the missing death date.

Re Polk County cemeteries, who can you recommend as expert(s) for Bluff Creek Cemetery? I've been there only once, but think there are a number of plot markers that have been given "Memorials" and I need a higher authority to have Find A Grave remove them.

Virginia. I am the trustee for the Oakdale Cemetery Located in the Oakdale Community just north of Livingston. Oakdale Cemetery is listed as being located in Marston which is a mistake. I am not on this site often so I will miss messages for a while. If you decide to contact, the best is via email Thank you. John Wells (Jr)

RE: Willie - #15401150
Good evening, Virginia-

I assure you that I did not add those photos to Find A Grave for Willie. I have never been in Texas (I am in New York) so I assume it was a Find A Grave glitch. I have removed the photos and will be checking to see who they actually belong to. Thanks for bringing my attention to this matter.

The correction you asked me to do has a mother born in 1938 when Sarah was born in 1828, I'm confused

RE: Jay Raburn 141018735
Thank you for telling me it was a duplicate. Looks like I added the pictures to Mr Clarks so I am not sure how I managed to add it again. Just one of those days I guess.
