If you have corrections or additions, I am happy to put them in but please, use the edit, correction suggestion to do corrections or transfer requests. I am also happy to transfer management to a responsible relative.|
I became interested in genealogy in 1993 after my grandmother passed away. I have collected over 40,000 names 4500 obituaries, and 1500 death certificates for descendants of 1880 Lawrence County, Ohio.
In 2010 I found findagrave and found it to be a excellent site for remembering our ancestors.
I have done considerable work on City Cemetery, Brownsville, Texas, (adding 20,000+ names, in addition to several 1000 more by other volunteers - 25,000+ total), I also have done several smaller cemeteries in Brownsville and Lawrence Co, Ohio.
I am also working to index Brownsville Death Certificates from 1950 to 1982 (images available on familysearch.org up to 1982) and the Brownsville Herald Newspaper obits from 1977 to 2017. Currently have scanned images of 1977 to 2017, with index complete from 1977 to 2017. If you need a Brownsville obit in this time frame, send me a note with the name and death date.
Just found a great webpage, adblock.com. It is shareware, you don't have to pay but it is worth $15-30 to block almost every ad. Stops the ads on findagrave, well worth something to stop them, but also stops adchoices garbage.
Do not post photo requests for City Cemetery. All readable headstones have been posted.
Photo requests for Buena Vista and Rose Lawn in Brownsville requires contacting the cemetery by a family member to obtain plot location information. They will not give the info to a non family member, who knows why, its just "policy".

|Judy Flores-Kabelaris Eyre||My cousin's grave|
My cousin, Reynaldo Lopez, was reportedly buried in Old City Cemetery in 1977 per his obituary, but there is no headstone. He had a military funeral, so wouldn't a headstone been provided with his name, rank, etc.? Any idea how I can find out if one was supplied?
Could his body been moved to another cemetery and there was no record made of it?
Where might it have been moved?
It's so sad when we can't find his grave and headstone, and he's not where he's supposed to be.
Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

|James D. "Don" Hopson Jr||memorial #61271758|
Believe Sarah Ellen Wright Walters 61271758 is shown buried in Swan Creek Cemetery because her name is listed on gravestone with her husband, but she is actually buried in Warren County, Ohio - memorial 161276025 as "Ellen Walters". I talked to her daughter from her first marriage several years ago and she provided that name and grave location. Just located memorial recently, and date and family history confirm both memorials are for the same person. Can you change burial location on memorial 61271758 before I start adding dates and names and a photo to her memorial? E-mail me at email@example.com if you need more information. James D.

HI David, I was wondering where you found Agapita's Obit and if you could send me the link? I have been unable to find.

|Jeannie Cunningham||RE: Theresa Windoholer Hess|
David, thanks for the information. Those are the same documents I have. But I have been unable to find any information on the name Windoholer! Nothing comes up on a general search of Ancestry, Google, Family Search, nowhere can I find that name other than on those two documents. Thanks for your help. Maybe someday, something will pop up!
