|Beth Collins||RE: Dement Cemetery|
I don't know why you are collecting this family data, but wanted you to know what we found. In the grove of trees where the cemetery was located we discovered that each of the 4 headstones also had an accompanying foot stone with the person's initials in them. We took pictures of those AND noticed there was a 5th foot stone with the initials A.T.D., but no headstone that we could find.
We also took pictures of the cemetery. If you are interested in any of these other pictures, let me know and we'll figure out a way to send them. (I don't know if this forum allows that.)
Thanks for the Dement adventure!

Looking for Robert H. Hereford sent my friend and I on quite the adventure this morning! We FOUND THE CEMETERY!! As you may be able to tell from his grave marker photo it was knee deep in poison ivy. Haha! It is located in the middle of a farmer's field in a stand of trees. About 100 yards away is another stand of trees with an old homestead and shed inside of it.
While at the cemetery we took pictures of the other tombstones there, not knowing you had made additional requests 2 years ago.
I think I have two of the others you requested and maybe three, as there was a small one that was marked simply "C.W.D"
Give us a few days to return and verify the names. If they are the ones you requested, we'll post them ASAP.
Much excited for the find, I am,

There are 328 photo requests at:
Forest Park Cemetery
Postal Code: 77023
Phone: (713) 928-5141 (713) 928-5141
Here is the contact information for the Cemetery where you made a photo request. Contact them and ask them for the grave location of the grave you want photographed. Cemeteries often give such grave locations as a type of grave address, for example plot, lot or section number, row number and grave or space number. Funeral home services and Cemetery staff at some locations are more friendly and helpful to family members of the deceased than they are to volunteer photographers. Volunteers seeking graves to photograph them sometimes get brushed off because Funeral homes and Cemeteries are businesses and people who work at them feel that there are more valuable ways to spend their time than helping volunteers. Usually a person who can claim to be a relative or friend of the deceased gets more helpful response. So, I am sending you the contact information of the Cemetery where you have made a photo request. Call them or write to them and ask them for exact grave locations of your loved one. Write down the grave location at the cemetery. Then send me a message letting me know where the grave location is at the cemetery.
As soon as I receive the exact grave locations for this cemetery, I will go there on my day off and try to fullfill your photo request with the grave location you provide to me.

I attempted to locate the cemetery but with no success. I do not have a GPS. Maybe someone that does can find it. I found 2 places that appeared to be old homestead that were completely grown over with bush and vegetation that might be the area but they were inacessable for me.
I am so sorry.

Sorry about that. I have posted up the entire marker. The marker is extremely hard to read. If you want to enter L.T., you may use the pic of the marker.

That stone is all there was. There are a few other Schmidts with them. Sophia and Frances.

Is Pauline the wife of David Bishop? If so, I looked for her stone and didn't find it, but there is a broken off base for a headstone in front of David's. If you pull up Margie Francis headstone picture you can see a small white spot between her stone and David's. This could possibly be hers as it has the same type of base as David's and is directly in front of his.

Glad to do it. I know what you mean. I just got back from a trip to take pictures in the place I moved from a year and 1/2 ago. I lived in that area for 30 years! However I didn't find these relatives until recently.
The sun was doing a number on the camera lens today. The next time I am by the cemetery I will see if I can get a shot at a better time of day and exchange them.
