Bio and Links
Bio Photo We can all do more helping each other than we can working alone.

Working my way through entries I manage in Collin, Wise County and Clay County, Texas. I gained management of a large group of them just recently so is a work in progress.

Earthman Resthaven Cemetery in Houston, Harris County, Texas is a "project" of sorts for me, I have added over 15,000 entries and pictures to this cemetery so far.

If additional information is offered, happy to update entries I manage. I like to connect entries to their spouse and parent's entries, makes it much easier to move around for everyone and adds value to the entry.

Primary lines: Hollis, Patterson, Maxwell, Davenport, Combest, Riggins, Hammonds, Peck, Dick. But am collecting data on all associated surnames.
I love pictures, it brings a little life to these "dead" names on paper we work on every day. smile....Concerning the pictures I post to the Findagrave website, we have to make them smaller to fit on the webpage which means you can't zoom in on the picture to pick up details. If this is case on one you need, write me, I'll try to find the original and send it to you.

I choose to follow Findagrave guidelines for transfer, which can be found on the Findagrave FAQ page, but in summary.

I transfer your ancestors or your descendants or your siblings unless they are my ancestors as well, but remember your grandfather's sister's nephew is not your ancestor....I accept they are part of your family, but let's keep it your ancestors, your siblings or your descendants.

For updates or connections, please the "Suggest a correction" feature on an entry for update or transfer, this gives me a shortcut to the entry as well as sending me the correction you wish made. Typically, I will get the update or connection done the same or next day unless I am out of town.

Please don't make duplicates of existing entries, it is confusing to us all, having said that if I have made a duplicate it was an accident, please advise me so I can get it fixed either by deletion or having findagrave merge the 2 entries to preserve flowers or connections.

Some findagravers insist on having multiple surnames in the surname field because of several marriages, please use the surname they died with as it makes a search for them nigh on to impossible otherwise.

E.S.Norton death cert
Hi Richard, I'm doing Norton research connected to my orphaned great grandmother. I noticed your E.S.Norton memorial for Elisha Norton. I have a copy of death cert for E.S.Norton. It states he was either 52 or 22,but probaly 52,in 1916. Either way,it doesn't add up for Elisha born in 1861. I just wanted to let you know. Is E.S. Norton Elisha?Thank you for any information you can share on these Norton lines. Ms.Nana

Claude Glenn Combest Mem#46413264
I believe there is an error in this memorial. It is showing Claude Glenn's mother as Elizabeth Ann Watson Combest. Elizabeth was the 2nd wife of James Bell Combest. Shouldn't Claude Glenn's mother be Golda Belle Haggard Combest?

Hello Richard,
Carroll Preston was my great Uncle. I entered his parents as edits, and I ask for your approval. This will link him also to my grandfather and his other siblings.
Thanks,
David Cross

Find A Grave Memorial# 6454401
Looking for a connection to a Jim McLin who was in Miliam Co., TX as the time his son William (Bill) McLin was born. Bill was born 22 Apr 1915 in Cameron, TX. and he died in Galveston on 14 May 1944. Bill is buried in Cameron.

Any help with this connection would be much appreciated.

Thanks
Murl

Transfer of #669861
Richard, please transfer #6469861 to me. This is my mother's, Florence S. Byrom's, grave at Walnut Grove Cemetery in Collin County. This is a second request, first was dated Oct. 24, 2016. I started another memorial for her and then noticed that you had already entered one. I will delete mine when you transfer. Thank you. June
