Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired university teacher and librarian with interest in Civil War burials and burial practices. Also undertaking to photograph all cemeteries in Erath County, TX, and surrounding counties, then to enter the tombstone information into the database. Many older tombstones are in such shape as to be illegible, so corrections to bad or missing biographical information is welcomed.

Please make requests for additions, corrections, links, etc., directly from the memorials' "edit" feature rather than here. I'll get to them much faster. (Transfers to direct descendants, please, and not in bulk lots!)

RE Memorial #15183763
Greetings Ken,

This message concerns the memorial for STEPHEN NEWTON BORDERS JR. My grandfather Steve would have been pleased to find he finally rid himself of the middle name he disliked so much, AUGUSTUS. During his lifetime he went to great lengths to conceal its existence. For example, when he volunteered for the Army in World War I, he denied having a birth certificate in order to be called STEVE BORDERS. The Army enlisted him as STEVE NMI BORDERS (NMI = No Middle Initial), which made Grandfather Steve quite happy.

I submitted an edit to correct this middle name error, with the hope he forgives me in the next life.

Widemans in Ramsey Cemetery
A few days ago, I submitted a few edits on the Widemans buried in the Ramsey Cemetery in Erath County. Do I need to provide you with additional information before you are comfortable adding the new information?

Appreciate your efforts to post all of this information.

transfer memorial 92211404
Hello,
This memorial is my grandfather, Granvel Thomas Nabors. I'd appreciate the transfer of his page to me. Also, please remove the nickname Big Daddy from his profile. Only his grandchildren called him that. That name was not used by anyone else.

Thanks,
Natalie Nabors Hansen

In your search of cemeteries in Erath Co TX, have you seen the tombstone of my great grandmother:
Annie Chamberlin Davis who died February 1900.
She was the wife of John Burton Davis.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
