Files Valley Cemetery
This relates to the status of the cemetery in Files Valley, TX. In the 1970s, a board was established to oversee maintenance of the cemetery. All of the board members are now deceased. In order to insure some level of maintenance going forward, a new board should be established. A meeting seems necessary to reestablish the board and the first group to make contact with, before going to the general population of the community, in my opinion, should be those FindAGrave Contributors who have shown an interest and demonstrated some effort to preserve the memory of those interred there. If you have experience in managing small cemeteries and/or the interest to participate in this process, please contact me via email at

Regards and thanks for all your work for FindAGrave.

not sure if asking for too much help but these folks seem to be in a non-existent cemetery

b. 1915 d. Jun. 6, 1965 Shiloh Cemetery
Dallas County
Texas, USA
Polk, Mrs John 106496929
b. unknown d. Jun. 6, 1965

(I found some of the others -in other cemeteries!)

John Polk, 50, of Dallas died following a fall in the bathroom of his home. He was pronounced dead on arrival at a Garland Hospital.

Services were held a the Shiloh Cumberland Presbyterian Church with Rev. Fred Bryson officiating. Burial was in the Shiloh Cemetery.

Survived by his mother - Mrs. Mattie Polk.

-- Any insight would be helpful -- not mine -- but just trying to clear-out this fake place!!
