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!)

Hello Ken,
You are listed as the creator for the comments on M. E. Dunn. Your comments say she was the wife of J. T. Ferris. I have a different opinion. I believe she is Matilda Elizabeth Mulberry Moore Dunn. Her first husband, Charles Moore, is buried nearby. He is my wife's ancestor that immigrated from Ireland.

Hi Ken - Thank you so very, very much for linking my brother, David Lee Morris who died in 1934 with my parents who died more than 50 years later. I know I have a lot to learn, still; but I was unable to link them. You are a responsible memorial manager & our findagrave hero. Thanks again, GinieReed

Possible duplicate find-a-grave memorial
I believe your find-a-grave memorial # 20656999
is one and the same as memorial # 54485410 created by Sheran Weible

I don't know if you two would like to collaborate and combinee these two memorials into one or not. Just giving a "head's up."

Carol Van de Wetering,
granddaughter of John Rickman Holland through his daughter, Simruda Catherine Holland Covington (1828 - 1906)

Jesse C. Yarborough "Yarbo"
Hi, thank you for putting my Great, Great Grandfathers information on Find a grave. I wanted to let you know that he was also a Texas Ranger and served with Buck Berry. That unit went into the War Between the States. He also received the Southern Cross of Honor from the United Daughters of the Confederacy for his service.

Thanks so much
