Manuel Gonzaullas
A photo request was put in for Manuel Gonzaullas. I went to Sparkman Hillcrest and there is no record of him being buried at Sparkman Hillcrest. I checked his death certificate online at Sparkman Hillcrest apparently took care of the arrangements but the burial location indicates that the body was sent to Restland Crematory, which is not a location at Sparkman. It may refer to Restland Memorial Park and their crematorium. Restland is another memorial park north of Sparkman Hillcrest just on the other side of the LBJ Freeway. Did you create the memorial for him from a visual siting of his burial or from a newspaper article? Since I could find no record of him being buried at Sparkman Hillcrest, you may want to edit his memorial to indicated that the location of his ashes is "unknown."

Pilkington vs Homister
Clay, since you are familiar with the Homister name perhaps you can clarify something for me - please see the note I have at the top of the entry for Annie Lucinda Homister Mathews in Huntington Cemetery, # 63436197. Can you answer the question I have on her pg?

RE: John Swilling
Well, there are a couple of books about him. And isn't there a statue in Phoenix? That seems like enough to make him famous.

Hope you are successful in getting recognition for him.

RE: John Swilling
You're quite welcome. It's the least I could do for my GG-Uncle.

Are you related as well? His sister Harriet was my GG grandmother

RE: Lucinda Getsinger Green Lambeth
Thanks for the reply, it is appreciated. I worked on these people, and only these, ALL day yesterday until I was literally cross-eyed, hah! Your info concurs with what I found.

3 things I did not find: (1) these women in a census together with family to show they were sisters (2) the marriage between Lucinda & Mr. Lambeth (3) the DC for Lucinda .... and I looked by any conceivable name I could think of, and cross referenced, etc, still nothing. IF she died in 1952 as you have her then she logically "should" have a DC. She either died under another married name or out of state, or her DC is so poorly transcribed that we are overlooking it somehow.

I'm interested in her because I'm still getting requests from other folks to link her to family members, which I cannot do as long as she's shown as "burial unknown".

I guess the search continues ......

Rich Garrett
Henry Andrew Thomas
Thanks for the Biography. I have one small addition/typo correction. When you talk about Henry leaving the railroad in 1885 he went to the Fort Worth Detective Agency. My suggestion is to add "Detective Agency" after Fort Worth.

RE: 3 Memorials
The Ramsey threw me. I am racking my brain- Henry Andrew THOMAS was the one I wrote about- but I am supposing the answer is the same-since I saw the rating at the bottom, but it still said it was managed by YOU- not findagrave. Heck THOMAS.
