Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always taken an interest in history and genealogy which I inherited from my gr-grandfather Porter Matteson. I find this site helps me to help others find their loved ones, even if they can't actually visit the graves. I enjoy helping with this mission. My goal is to eventually have most of the tombstones in McLennan County, Texas online for everyone to see.
I am willing to do some research if needed in McLennan and Falls County.
***Please use the Suggest a Correction for transfer requests or corrections. I will not do "all surname" searches or transfers. If you ask for a transfer please include your relationship to the memorial and your contributor ID. ***
If you have a problem with something I posted, please email me or click on suggest a correction instead of posting it on my contributor page. I will address the issue as quick as I possibly can.

Buford A Fox
I'm going through pictures my mom left to me and I found two with B A Fox on the back. One of them has a Texas stamp on the back. This man was with my granddad during WWI (as written on the back of the picture.) Do you happen to actually know this man? And if so, can you help me determine if it's the same man as represented in this memorial? Because if so, I would LOVE to attach these two pictures to him. One was taken in France and the other on a porch in a wheelchair with his sister standing beside him. My grandparents did travel some to see family and old friends and seeing how they lived in southwest Arkansas they could very possibly have made a stop to see this old friend. Thank you.

William Elkanah Briggs

Realizing there are several sites at that indicate his name was William Elroy Briggs, I assure you this is wrong. Roy Briggs, his grandson, who thoroughly remembered his childhood hunting and fishing excursions with my gr gr grandfather, John Freeman Thompson, and other family data, confirmed to me in 1970 that his grandfather's name was William Elkanah Briggs and that his grandfather was named for his grandfather, Elkanah Briggs. At the time I had him spell E L K A N A H for me so there would be no mistake. Roy Briggs is buried at Kosse City Cemetery.

Thank you for the transfer of Docia Savannah (Adams) Mason! I shall work on it diligently and get her kids linked to her! You might have some of those too (I haven't looked yet) ... so talk with you again, surely! Thanks for all your wonderful help/work with Find A Grave! It's thanks to people like you that I have been able to find the graves for my family members buried in other towns! Best regards - Leah Stubbs

Thank-you for your time,

RE: Kersten Family
My apologies if my request sounded rude when I sent. It was not my intention at all, nor do I have a problem going through the proper procedures. I wanted to make sure that you would be alright with the transfers before I sent the requests, in order to ensure that I did not flood your inbox with unnecessary emails.

To be honest, I don't even remember sending the request to you. On January 29th, I lost my grandmother, Edna Anna Alma Kersten Altman, and six days later, I lost my father unexpectedly. This whole month has been a blur, and I have been an overly emotional wreck. Again, if my request was rude, I do humbly apologize.

Findagrave #32305479

Can you please transfer this record to me? This baby would be the sibling to my mom's cousin. The last name is spelled wrong (Sladovnik is the correct spelling), and this baby's siblings are also buried in that cemetery.

Thank you,

-Eric Boyd
