|Bio and Links|
A native-born resident of Marshall, Texas, I have begun researching my family's gravesites in the surrounding areas. From Avinger to Upshur County to sites all over Marshall and towns in and around Harrison County. |
I have walked and photographed markers in and around Harrison County at many of the cemeteries. My goal is to walk, locate, and record them all. I try to locate and add GPS coordinates every so often at the around 200 cemeteries in our county; I have even had funeral homes ask me to help them locate burial sites. If the markers are legible, I have photographed them and added them on here if missing. More get added all the time, and I try to stop and check for new ones now and then.
I have found hidden and lost cemeteries in Harrison County and added them to this website, like most recently Saint Marks and Cornerstone in the Harleton area, Pace Memorial Garden in the Hallsville area, and Elizabeth Cemetery in eastern Harrison County near Leigh. I am trying to gather info on Harrison County cemeteries that have incorrect directions or none and locate them so they accurately appear on the Maps tab; if you know where one is but can not get to it, let me know!
I want the memorials for cemeteries in my area, and that my family are in, to be as complete as possible for future generations.
*Please do not add Death Certificates to the memorials on here - the information could freely be gathered by those attempting identity theft of the deceased, and could potentially contain information about living relatives.
If you have your messages disabled or your email is not available, please do not leave me an odd edit request. If I cannot contact you to verify sources or if I have a question, your edit may be declined. Reasonable changes are rarely questioned.
Per Findagrave guidelines, I will not add an obituary, or link to an obituary, to a memorial without permission from the original publisher.

Thanks so much for the photos of Martin and Sarah Steelman's headstones. I especially like the way you posted close-ups, so that it is easier to read the inscriptions. I did notice that one of the close-ups was accidentally uploaded twice. Thanks for all your work!

Did you ever hear back from Juanita Harrell. She created memorials for Joseph Bruce Kilgore #6382462 and Minnie Lee Findley Kilgore #6382471. I saw you had added photos for both. Joseph is the brother of my grandfather and I am thrilled to see photos of their graves. I have submitted edits but saw your note and worry that edits will not be made. Should I create memorials and let you add photos? Susan
