Stadden Cemetery - new photos

You had asked about additional photos from the Stadden Cemetery. Dad and I made a couple of recent visits to the Stadden Cemetery. As we expected it is in really poor shape, very badly overgrown, fallen trees, poison ivy, briars, etc. But at least the badly overgrown fence is keeping the cows out now so there is no further damage in that regard.

It took me awhile trimming the heavy overgrowth of briars off the Stadden gate before I could either see the sign or open the gate. Then we found the McKee gate and fence under a huge group of fallen tree branches. It took us a couple of afternoons to clear the McKee section and rebuild our fence before I ventured out to find more gravestones, most of which were buried under the leaves and dirt.

I posted a number of new photos after the visit.

Thank you very much. I always appreciate photos of gravestones, especially those taken far from where I live. I plan to take many in local cemeteries here when the snow melts.

Thank you!
Thank you for adding my Mother's gravestone picture. I was 6 when she died, and I had never seen her grave... My father remarried quickly and never talked about my mother again after that. I finally found her grave a few years ago...50 years after she died. I appreciate your pictures....her name was elizabeth Catherine rice Lindsley.?"

Clifford Bruce Stewart
Thank you again
RC and Sarah Quinn for the flowers,

Thank you. I have now found my father's grave. Last night I found my grandparents, all of this from your help. I was taken from my parents at 18 months of age in 1954 when I was adopted, and I was born in 1953. My father was Alex T Stewart, and you have shown me his grave. It has taken me 58 years to get to this point of knowing. Thank you, I will be visiting Westbrook Cemetery in the future; I live inn Santa Fe, New Mexico. My original name is Clifford Bruce Stewart and my name through adoption is Clifford E Carnicom.

Thank you very deeply, from Clifford

I came across the findagrave website yesterday and have spent hours doing searches on family members.
I wanted to thank you VERY much for posting the marker for my parents graves. Edward & N. Jean Buckley.
My parents died when I was a teenager and I moved away from TX many years ago. I never knew that a marker was ever placed and it has bothered me for all these years that if I ever had the opportunity to go back home and visit my parents graves that I would have no way of finding them.
So, again, THANK YOU!

Thank you so much for the Wray photo. I used to manage the Diamond Shamrock that is within blocks of this cemetery but did not know my husband would have distant ralatives in the area as he is from the east coast. Just goes to prove all the smart folks get to Texas as fast as they can. :) Now I am out of the area (still TX). Thanks for all the hard work.

Thanks so much for your help with my request for a photo of Eva LaCoke's grave. It's sad that she doesn't have a headstone but I really appreciate all of the burial information and the photo of the LaCoke family monument that you sent.

Thank you for taking photos of my family Murphy/Grantham at Calvary Hill. I used to visit every year on day of my mother's death. I can't go now due to living so far away. Thank you again.

RE: William Horn
Anytime :) I'm glad I could help. It was a nice thing to do on a nice day. The cemetery seemed to be kept up well. There were a few weeds but past that everything looked really good. If you need anything else just yell :) Jaime

Thank you so much for establishing a memorial for Aunt Don, including a picture, linking her to her spouse, and transferring maintenance of her memorial to me.

It's such a great feeling to see families scattered over many miles coming together on Find A Grave. Thanks for your many other contributions to Find A Grave.

RE: Stadden Cemetery
I only photographed the McKee stones and a few others that I could locate easily in the dense undergrowth and poison ivy. The Stadden Cemetery has two fences. The inner fence is around the Mckee family graves and was cleared by members of my family a few years ago. This cemetery is on private property with limited access. I don't anticipate getting back to that area until sometime in late 2010. Does anyone know of a plat map for this cemetery?
