How do I add a new updated picture for this cemetery? I took a pic yesterday and would like it to be added to the photos that attach with the cemetery.

I deleted the duplicate memorial, but preserved the info. temporarily, until we find the rest of his children, and I already found one of his missing children.

I am currently dealing with a person, who added Augustus Pearce Ralston with no dates.

Hopefully, that person is still active and will add all the data and then I can help her link that memorial up to his father.

Maybe you can talk her into transferring that memorial to you, if she isn't kin. His or her last name is "Smith", so she might be kin.

Write me directly.

I noticed that Ms Nettleton's photo looks remarkably like Reba McIntyre and not like her. How old was she in this photo?

RE: Harvey Betz
I obtained the information from the Rose Hill Cemetery Book 1 which contains those buried until 1995. Book 2 is from 1995-2000. Thank you so much for your interest.

In the caption for the photo of Ellen & her daughters, you say she is at the far right. Looks to me like the opposite; she is actually at far left.

Tales From Hallowed Ground: Evelyn Keyes
Posted on April 6, 2014

Evelyn Keyes

This month, Tales from SETX's Hallowed Ground takes us to Port Arthur for a look at one of our early daughters who achieved fame and fortune but never forgot her roots.

Evelyn Louise Keyes was born in Port Arthur, Texas, on November 20, 1916. The daughter of Methodist minister Omar Dow Keyes and Maude Olive Keyes, her life in SETX was brief to say the least. At age three, her father died, so she and her mother moved to Atlanta, Georgia, where her grandparents resided. In her biography, Scarlett O'Hara's Younger Sister: My Lively Life In and Out Of Hollywood, she tells of her impoverished youth and the hardships that she would overcome. In her teen years, she took dancing lessons, which signaled the start of her journey out of poverty and into what would become stardom.Evelyn in Port Arthur

Discovered by Cecil B. DeMille, Keyes was cast in a few lesser known pictures until she landed the role of Suellen, Scarlet O'Hara's sister, in the movie Gone with the Wind (1939). She then went on to star in other motion pictures, including The Jolson Story (1946), The Prowler (1951), and A Thousand and One Nights (1945), and played Helen Sherman in the classic The Seven Year Itch (1955). She officially retired from acting in 1956 but did take on a few roles in her later years.

Sueellen 1939Keyes' private life appeared similar to that of a Hollywood script. Her first husband committed suicide in 1940. After divorcing her second husband, director Charles Vidor, after two years, she married director John Huston. The couple adopted a boy that Huston had discovered in Mexico while filming The Treasure of the Sierra Madre. Unfortunately that marriage failed as well, and they were divorced in 1950. After her retirement from film, she married bandleader Artie Shaw in 1957. That marriage would last 28 years.IMG_1178

In her later years, on occasion, Keyes traveled back to her birth city and donated memorabilia from her career to the Museum of the Gulf Coast. Unfortunately, she was diagnosed with uterine cancer, and at the ripe old age of 91, succumbed to the retched disease at her home in Montecito, California. She died on July 4, 2008.

She now rests in her birth city of Port Arthur, but when scanning the old stones from Greenlawn or the Calvary cemeteries, I found no mention of her. This is because, "it was her last wish that, upon her death, her ashes be placed in a lamp, similar to the one she emerged from when she played a genie in the 1945 film A Thousand and One Nights."IMG_1181

When you visit the Museum of the Gulf Coast, you will find that there is a lot to see. But remember when you are strolling through the Evelyn Keyes exhibit that you are, for all intensive purposes, walking through hallowed ground.

Evelyn Keyes Photo at the Museum of the Gulf Coast in Port Arthur
Do you have a photo of her headstone??? I have photos of her display at the Museum of the Gulf Coast in Port Arthur TX.... Her last request was for her ashes to be buried in a lamp like she came out of in the 1945 film "A thousand and one Nights" Can you verify her headstone in that cemetery in California? How can I send you the photos ?

I have found a Find A posting for the above person in Indianola Cemetery (#26874259) and Indian Hills Cemetery (#12258860) You posted the one in Indianola.

When you have time and are in one or both of those cemeteries would you verify in which one Dorothy is buried. Thank you so much

I've updated her as you asked. You mentioned that I'm faster than Find a Grave at updates, so just thought I'd let you know a little more how it works. After a certain number of memorials added, the automated option for edits becomes open, so I don't have to type in quite so much, but then the system just posts edits to be reviewed on my personal profile and I still have to click the button to okay the suggested change. Unfortunately, for some reason, I don't get a notice of these edits (like the emails I get from regular edits). I only find out there's been a suggestion if I check my profile. I only recently found this out myself, so just passing on the info.
