Remember the Past ~ Imagine the Future|
Volunteer: by definition means "a person who performs a service willingly and without pay." That is what its all about here on Find A Grave; volunteers giving freely of their time and resources. Yes, some have more time than others; more time to add more names, find more info and do more research, but that does not diminish the importance of the contributor who only has time to add just basic names. Sometimes its the smallest clue that brings the biggest results.
PLEASE try to remember because we are dedicated "Gravers" we have stomped through mud puddles, walked for miles, swatted mosquitoes, got stung by fire ants, stood out in 105 degree summer sun and/or froze our rear off on a cold & frosty winter morning - all to get that perfect photo (at our time & expense) others have requested from some remote cemetery out in the "boonies". So please, instead of complaining to us that we misspelled your loved ones name on the memorial pg we made for them (we are human, we all make mistakes, and we are more than happy to correct our typos), please consider how wonderful it would be for us to hear an occasional "thank you for your efforts."
Me, I volunteer in any area where I have the resource material to do so. My primary interest is in Angelina, Llano, Mason, Milam & Williamson counties but I'll research any that I can.
NOTICE: I prefer not to link to "UNKNOWN" BURIALS. Let's discuss it before linking, please.
* NOTE: Per the Find A Grave guidelines, I do not post photos which I did not take, or have personal ownership of, or permission to use - that means newspaper obit photos. IF I post an obit photo in the future it means I knew the person or family.(updated Oct 2012)
About Find A Grave: if you are new to Find A Grave (1) PLEASE read the FAQ section BEFORE you start asking for transfers or sending suggestions, corrections, additions, comments, etc. And when you do send your comments/requests (2) PLEASE use the "edit" tab found on each memorial pg to send your msg. Use of the edit tab takes us straight to the name in question and cuts down on mistakes. And (3) Unless I know you and know your work, PLEASE state the source (or reason) for the change/addition in the info (death certificate, obit, census, family Bible, personal knowledge, etc) I know I sometimes forget to add these to my SAC's, so if you need to know where I got my info, just ask me (for me, most will be from TXDC's or the census)
ABOUT MY PERSONAL FAMILY PHOTOS: you DO NOT have permission to take/use any of my personal family photos, period! (unless I personally tell you its ok) If you have interest in any of my personal family lines, contact me, tell me who you are and what your interest in my family names is.
ABOUT THE TOMBSTONE PHOTOS I ADD: if they are your family and you wish to add them to your family trees, yes you may do so, BUT remember to give credit where credit is due and note that you found it on Find A Grave "courtesy of Deb in Angelina Co". On the other hand, you DO NOT have permission to take & re-post my photos from other websites, or those here on Find A Grave, under your name as if you were the photographer. Whether good, bad, old, or new, I recognize my own photos. It's not about "owning", it's about giving another person the credit for the effort they went to, to gather & post data for the benefit of those who are searching for family. Thank you!
Names of personal interest to me (for one reason or another) are too many to list, but my main line of research interests are in surnames: Alvis, Baugh, Collins, Coursey, Leslie, Hammond, Mankins, Moore, Mott, Murphy, Roberts, Secrest, Sharp, and numerous names associated with those families.
Other surnames of interest are: Camp, Broomfield, Gallion, Kendrick, Keith, Pitts, Martin, Sunday, Tull/Tullos and those associated with them.

|Bruce Feinauer||RE: Joel Mott|
Thanks for your response. The source of death which was attached to the Find A Grave entry was for 1964 instead of 1866 and was for a Joel. I have only the tombstone image to go by and it is very hard to read as has been mentioned. I realize that several Joels are in the family and had a hard time thinking this person could be Noel until I saw the photo of the tombstone. Thanks again. Bruce Feinauer

Whew!! I too believe Joseph and Francis are brothers. I added the Navajo Cemetery, Jackson County, Oklahoma to MY Martha. Also found maiden name Dandy and marriage to Francis Ford in Louisiana. Added children (requests) to son Francis and KiowaGal is welcome to use any information for Martha and I will delete MY Martha .
|Rebecca Voigt||RE: Miller transfers|
Thank you for the transfers. I have info I want to add and figured it would be easier this way than asking you to do it. :)
|Daniel Bode||RE: Minityre Nicholas|
No problem. I am just going by what I heard some of the older generation tell me. Minityre's second wife was a sister of my great-great-grandmother.
I was told that Minityre and Aunt Sis moved from Wise County to the Lovelady area just prior to his death, and that he died and was buried in that vicinity.
|Mary Summers Hickling||RE: sponsorship|
Will do, thanks again for your contributions to this site
|Mary Summers Hickling||RE: sponsorship|
Thank you for doing the work allowing me to see these headstones. I had no idea where they were buried until I found this site. I appreciate the work you've done, more than I can say. This was my great grandfather and great uncle.
