Since most of the people in the Whites Chapel Cemetery are related by blood or marriage, you might enjoy looking through a book that should be found in the library at Grapevine concerning the families of the Grapevine/Keller area. I can't remember the title of the book but am sure a librarian can get it for you. The families are the settlers of the area and their decedents.

I wonder if I may have your permission to use your cemetery photo on my family website. Check it out at This is how I'd be using the photos and obituaries I find on Find A Grave, with 'used with permission' in the caption.

Thank you.

Don, I want to thank you so much for helping others through your work with Find A Grave. You and others have made it possible for me (and others in my condition) to visit cemeteries and see our extended families grave sites. I visited physically when I started my genealogy journey but now because of health and age am unable to do so. I hope you won't mind my making copies of your photos for my family files on Ancestry and Family Tree Maker. I am trying so very hard to get all I can on them so that my descendants and others can see their heritage. Thank you again for helping us. God bless you as you do this mighty mission.

I requested a photo of Robert's headstone, but was told I needed to get the plot number. This morning I called the cemetery and was told he was in Garden of Roses, block 246, Lot C, space 4. P Mazankowski

RE: Robert Snider
Mr. Flannigan has record books for all the cemeteries in the county. He was kind enough to check Smithfield for some of my family. He was reading from the cemetery records. Someone has recently added a photo to Robert's memorial and the stone reads 1902. I thought it may have been hard to read if it was broken at the time it was transcribed as it looks to have been recently repaired. The crack runs right along the area where the date is. He also noted that his information was right next to Minnie Snider(I added her to the cemetery) who also died in 1902. The record said she died in childbirth, leading him to believe that Robert was her son. The records stated that she is the wife of I. C. Snider (Isaac). I was just trying to be helpful and pass along some information that was given to me.

You left a flag on his gravesite. Thank you.

Parents were Frederick Conrad Oftendahl and Alice Leona Compton. Alice is my grandmother Pearl Covel's sister. Are you related to them?

re: James W Martin - Whites Chapel Cemetary
Hi there, I believe that this James W Martin may be my missing great grandfather! My records from his daughter (my Aunt) stated he was born Mar 28 1885. This fellow is only one year off. According to family story he left his wife and 7 daughters; ending up in Wichita Falls TX.

Someone was kind enough to find a death date for him (which I see isn't on his headstone). Any chances of confirming his death date with whomever has the records for the cemetary? - Liane

Oliver Loving Duplicate Photos
Just a quick FYI to let you know you have at least one set of duplicate photos on the Oliver Loving memorial page . . . mayhaps because of a merge of duplicate memorial pages?
