Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have done family research for over 30 years. I have 18,200+ names in my family tree database. Someone asked, "When will you be finished?" My answer, "The day I die." Then someone can post my memorial at Little River - Wilson Valley Cemetery.

Paternal Names: Tippit, Roberts, Brundrett, Collard, Cook, Cash, Stanford, Davis, and others.

Maternal Names: Henderson, Johnson, Marks, Pricer, Gallman, McGregor, Sanders, Thornton, Robertson, and more.

Wife's Family: Moseley, Crow, Grubbs, Adams, Veal, Mabry, Clinard, Baird, and more.

Cemeteries of Interest:
Little River - Wilson Valley, I have three sir-names that have five consecutive generations buried there. One of those sir-names has a 7th generation buried there. There will be the 6th generation buried there, but none of us have died yet.

Other Bell County Cemeteries have my kin buried there. Dyess Grove, Dyess Family, Holland, Bellwood, Hillcrest, Greathouse, North Belton, and others.

Milam County: Locklin, Walkers Creek, and others.

Houston Area: Woodlawn, Houston National, and others.

A great disappointment is the "Unmarked Grave". Too many times we have a strong idea were someone is buried, but how do we know for sure?

RE: Shelby Ray Adams
Thanks for your thoughts. Shelby was my brother-in-law. Thank you for your thoughts and the photo. I have the same photo. I had not put it on his memorial yet, because my husband died unexpectedly right after Shelby. I had just not felt like working on Find A Grave. Thanks! I know Shelby would have appreciated you.

Mader Coleman Henderson
I tried to find a marker for Mader Henderson in the Garden of the Apostles in Pinecrest Cemetery, Alexander, AR, to fulfill a photo request from Michael S. Ray on Find A Grave. I found her husband Alfred's single marker but not one for Mader. Do you know if she was buried next to him? There are spaces next to him that are either the dreaded "unmarked" grave or empty ones. I see you created her memorial so I thought you might have the answer. I don't want to call the office because they have started charging $25 for lookups for genealogical research. I've already exhaused my "it's my aunt & uncle" routine. (:

RE: Aunt Mary Clark
Hey Joe,
How are you? I think it is actually called Parker Memorial in Hurst that is where we went for her service last week. Is there two Parker cemeteries?

Thanks a bunch

RE: William Henry Moseley
Hi Joe,

I would love to be at the cemetery when you using your dousing rods, but I am currently still living in Georgia. I will be moving back to TX in the next 2-6 months. Let me know what you discover!

Walker Crofford Pepper
Hi Joe, hope this finds all well with you. Have a question regarding the spelling of Crofford on memorial 58410724 for Walker Crofford Pepper. I found his WWII Draft Reg where he signed his name Crofford, but there seems to be an issue on whether this is the correct spelling of his name or not. I have his middle name spelled the same way you do as Crofford, based upon his signature. However, I have someone who has contacted me saying it was wrong and that it is actually spelled Crafford. Can you help shed some light on this? Thanks so much for all that you do.

Mahalia Jane Cunningham Moseley

She is my great-great-great-grandmother and I am trying to determine the exact location of her grave and that of her husband Benjamin F Moseley. I would like to mark their graves. Can you shed some light on how you determined that she/they are buried in Oak Lawn Cemetery in Rockdale?

Thanks and look forward to hearing back from you,

RE: Robinson of Burleson County
I have been to the cemetery. It is not difficult to get to but is very remote. I don't believe it is private property. There is a new section just behind the section with the older graves. I hope you will be able to visit.
I am not related and will be happy to transfer them to you.
