Bio and Links
Bio Photo I helped co-write state laws to protect our cemeteries here in Texas.
I've been Honored by the Texas State Senate, Texas State House of Representatives, The Dallas County Historical Commission for my work in preserving and protecting our cemeteries. I served on The State Senate Advisory Committee as well as being an Advisor to a number of cities in my area pertaining to cemeteries within their city limits. I have helped in clean ups and restoring a number of cemeteries. I believe very strongly in cemetery preservation. Cemeteries in most cases are the only history of those that came before us. Like rare books in a library once it's lost it's lost forever.
I served six years on the Duncanville City Council, two years as mayor pro-tem.
I've been working on family genealogy since 1976. I'm the wife of Wallace Richards.

Thank you, for your suggestion. But I'm not going to use Mom's obit on her memorial. I'm not sure yet what I will have in the bio as I'm not ready to work on it. Tomorrow marks the 1 month anniversary of my Mom's passing. I still not over the loss doubt I ever will be...

Best regards,

Lee Ann Gibson
You created a memorial for Lee Ann Gibson (memorial # 99941422) in the Golden Cemetery, Golden, Wood County, Texas. I was wondering if you could tell me if this was created based on cemetery records or otherwise? The birth year on the memorial is correct for a daughter of Jeremiah Calhoun Gibson also buried in the same cemetery.

Can you share any more about Lee Ann than what is shown on your memorial? Anything you have would be helpful to me. Thank you.

James W. Perkins
I have seen this James W. Perkins in two cemeteries. I was wondering if you are kin to him? I am researching his line. Thanks in advance. Liz
