Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have done family research for over 30 years. I have 17,700+ 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: 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.

William Henry Moseley
Hello Joe!

Question for you!! How many times was WH Moseley (1853/55 - 1940) married?
I know his son, James I Moseley, was a son of Mary Goodwin, per his 1956 TX Death Certificate. But, who was the mother of Lillie Ellen Moseley. FindAGrave is showing her as a daughter of Isaac & Sarah Mosley, but she is enumerated in the 1900 Milam Co., TX Census as a daughter of WH Moseley and another wife, Carrie Rheuama Jordan who was only 4 yrs older than Lillie.
I see that Mahalia Jane Cunningham was also married to BF Moseley, but I saw a marriage record for her to WH Moseley as well. A tangled web for me that I know you can probably untangle for me and Bette Ward.

Thank you for your time!

I would love to manage Georgia Keeney's memorial. She is the great-grandmother of a dear friend, for whom I am doing some research.
Thank you for all you do for FindAGrave.

Find A Grave Memorial# 37994748 why do you think his name is Daniel? I used the cemetery records and he was married to my cousin and I never heard that name....I have his social security paperwork and it does NOT indicate it should be Daniel.
