Beulah Drane @ Forest Park
I see you added a picture request for Beulah Drane @ Forest Park Cemetery in Houston. If you would call the cemetery at 713-928-5141 and get a "SECTION" and "LOT" I will try to get the picture you want. This is a very large (225+) acre cemetery and without a location would be very hard to find.

Thank you,
Cecil Vaden Jr

Dorsey said "I requested that a photo be added to this memorial page, but people have been unable to locate the grave. Are you sure it's there?

Maybe you could add a note indicating where you think it's located. The plot description didn't help."

Hi, please look at the memorial closely. The note section says "Source: City of Shawnee" This was created from their burial records. That plot location is theirs, not mine.

Also, that cemetery has a lot of sections without headstones as do many other older cemeteries. Lack of a headstone is not an accurate indication of no burial, especially one that died in 1921.

Having "lived in" the city's records for several months, I can tell you it's terrible. Lots of typos and errors when you compare the records to the headstones. This cemetery is one of the worse ones I've seen regarding their records.

That's all I can really tell you. You'll need to contact the city to investigate further.
