RE: Thank You for the good pictures!
You're very welcome. Glad the pictures are good and just what you needed. Yes, I know where Tanglewood is and I live just south of Valley View and Marsh near Cabell school. Not far from where you used to live. :) Keep up the good work with your genealogy research!

Straits at Merrell Cemetery
Hello Janie. I saw your request a few days ago but didn't accept it until today because I wasn't sure if I would be able to get inside. They keep it locked and there is no office at the small private cemetery. Years ago I did some research for another person who needed photos from the cemetery and it took some asking around to finally find the person with the key. It is in a residence area and the man lived a few blocks away. The weather has cooled some and I was in the area this morning so we decided to stop by to see if the cemetery was locked. Fortunately the lawn guys were in there mowing so I stopped and walked inside with my iPhone to take photos for you. (I didn't have my regular camera with me.) They came out pretty good except for Elmo Strait's which was a bit dark due to the sun being in the back of it...but the name and dates are still readable. I know why Addie's inscription is missed on the cemetery list by others because it is on the back of the same tall marker her husband's inscription is on. Many people don't realize that they need to walk around tall markers like that to see if there are other inscriptions on it. I found one marker with 3 inscriptions on it in east Texas for one of my kinfolk (her, her husband and his mother) but only one inscription is listed in published cemetery book and online list. Anyway, i wanted you to know that you (and I) lucked out this morning with the cemetery being unlocked.
