Thank you for all of your work!
Your pictures for Memorial #10192137 and #10192136
helped us find my great grandparents grave site. My husband had used Find A Grave with good results for some of his ancestors! In August, 2013, we were able to drive to Elida, NM and, after only 10 minutes of looking we found their graves. We knew what we were looking for since we had seen the pictures! I have had such great longing to know more about them, and through I have pieced more family connections together! I put the memorial numbers on their pages so that other people can see them, also! Thank you again!!

Leon Bruce Grave Marker
Cora, I appreciate you trying to get photo of Leon Bruce's grave marker. His obit states that he was buried in the Portales Cemetery. I will try contacting Marion Bruce to see where he was buried.

Bennie E. Knight
Does anyone know who Bennie E. Knight married? There is a Minnie Lou Knight buried next to him but I don't know if this is his wife. Any help will be appreciated. LaVonne Coke

Thanks for taking these photo requests for me. Mr. Branscum was my boss when I went to ENMU. I am sorry you have gone so many times for Mr. Hilliard's stone. I am surprised there is not one erected. Thanks again.
