Remember the Past ~ Imagine the Future
Volunteer: by definition means "a person who performs a service willingly and without pay." That is what its all about here on Find A Grave; volunteers giving freely of their time and resources. Yes, some have more time than others; more time to add more names, find more info and do more research, but that does not diminish the importance of the contributor who only has time to add just basic names. Sometimes its the smallest clue that brings the biggest results.
PLEASE try to remember because we are dedicated "Gravers" we have stomped through mud puddles, walked for miles, swatted mosquitoes, got stung by fire ants, stood out in 105 degree summer sun and/or froze our rear off on a cold & frosty winter morning - all to get that perfect photo (at our time & expense) others have requested from some remote cemetery out in the "boonies". So please, instead of complaining to us that we misspelled your loved ones name on the memorial pg we made for them (we are human, we all make mistakes, and we are more than happy to correct our typos), please consider how wonderful it would be for us to hear an occasional "thank you for your efforts."
Me, I volunteer in any area where I have the resource material to do so. I volunteer for Find A Grave in numerous counties. I volunteered previously for the Texas Tombstone Transcription Project. I also volunteer in the TXGenWeb Project. I do volunteer look-ups from resource material that I own on assorted Texas counties, however the primary counties are: Angelina, Llano, Mason, Milam & Williamson counties. My main county of (personal) interest is my birth county of Llano. If anyone has questions pertaining to Angelina Co cemeteries, or the info you've found listed about them here on Find A Grave, you may contact me. There may be cemeteries listed from time to time as being here in Angelina Co that actually are not here. Others may have been duplicated under "aka" names. And others not yet posted.
NOTICE: I HAVE CEASED LINKING TO "UNKNOWN" BURIALS, please do NOT ask me to link to them. You cannot "find a grave" if you don't know where its at.
* NOTE: Per the Find A Grave guidelines, I do not post photos which I did not take, or have personal ownership of, or permission to use - that means newspaper obit photos (I've only posted a few obit photos in the past but have ceased doing so completely). IF I post an obit photo in the future it means I knew the person or family.(updated Oct 2012)
About Find A Grave: if you are new to Find A Grave (1) PLEASE read the FAQ section BEFORE you start asking for transfers or sending suggestions, corrections, additions, comments, etc. And when you do send your comments/requests (2) PLEASE use the "edit" tab found on each memorial pg to send your msg. Use of the edit tab takes us straight to the name in question and cuts down on mistakes. And (3) Unless I know you and know your work, PLEASE state the source (or reason) for the change/addition in the info (death certificate, obit, census, family Bible, personal knowledge, etc) I know I sometimes forget to add these to my SAC's, so if you need to know where I got my info, just ask me (for me, most will be from TXDC's or the census)
ABOUT MY PERSONAL FAMILY PHOTOS: you DO NOT have permission to take/use any of my personal family photos, period! (unless I personally tell you its ok) If you have interest in any of my personal family lines, email me, tell me who you are and what your interest in my family names is.
ABOUT THE TOMBSTONE PHOTOS I ADD: if they are your family and you wish to add them to your family trees, yes you may do so, BUT remember to give credit where credit is due and note that you found it on Find A Grave "courtesy of Deb in Angelina Co". On the other hand, you DO NOT have permission to take & re-post my photos from other websites, or those here on Find A Grave, under your name as if you were the photographer. Whether good, bad, old, or new, I recognize my own photos. It's not about "owning", it's about giving another person the credit for the effort they went to, to gather & post data for the benefit of those who are searching for family. Thank you!
Family names of personal interest to me are too many to list, but my main line of research interests are in surnames: Alvis, Baugh, Collins, Coursey, Leslie, Hammond, Mankins, Moore, Mott, Murphy, Roberts, Secrest, Sharp, and numerous names associated with those families. The Honey Creek Cemetery (aka Coursey Cemetery by the old timers) in Llano Co is the resting place for many of my direct family lines. Others are in Bell and Williamson counties.
Other surnames of interest via marital lines are: Camp, Broomfield, Gallion, Kendrick, Keith, Pitts, Martin, Sunday, Tull/Tullos and those associated with them. If you have family history from any of these similar family lines feel free to contact me.

Deb, Thanks for making the birth year change for me. You did a great job with adding all source info to the memorial page. I think this date is more nearly correct than the others, as you could see as you added the sources. . .not to mention that Jim's birth date now fits in much better with the birth dates of his siblings. What a wonderful effort you have made on this. Much appreciation for all your hard work on this web site. Kindest regards, Nancy

Hi, Deb, I've sent you a correction for the birth year of James Franklin Hawthorne in the proper venue. The birth date is very confusing, but even though his marker shows the year 1887, he was actually born on January 1, 1886. Would you mind making this correction to 1886 for me. He is a member of my family. Appreciate all the work you are doing on findagrave.

My friend, Doris Kraus, is the only sibling remaining of that family. She told me last night, that she was probably the only one who knew the names of the twins. Thank you, and I know that Doris thanks you also. Amanda

I am one of the major Cotton Family historians for the Robertson County & Limestone County (Texas) Cotton clan. I am making major upgrades to the pages for any/all Cotton family members. This is the info from the Find a Grave Website, which meets the standard for requesting a transfer:
"If you have extensive additions/changes to make to a memorial, please contact the Find A Grave member who created the memorial via the "Suggest a Correction" link under the "Edit" tab on the memorial in question with your request to have the memorial management transferred to you. This will send an email request to the contributor, even if there is not an email address listed on their contributor page."
|Clay Homister||RE: Lucinda Getsinger Green Lambeth|
Yes the info is sketchy for sure. I was not aware of the death date on Lucindas memorial. I don't know how that happened. I think maybe I got some memorials mixed up. Thanks for pointing it out. I took the date off since I still don't have that data. A lot of the information I have comes from the Lambeth family. I developed a relationship with them while researching my family tree. I am pretty confident by what I have learned so far. Getsinger was not a common name in the area, so there is a 99.9 percent chance that two women with that same last name were related. The 1880 census has them listed at the same residence, although, Lucinda was already married to my g-grandfather and had his name. Lucinda was 17 and Emma was 11. I wish I could find more information, but like you said "the search continues". Surly there must be a marriage license or DC somewhere.
|Susan Thomas||RE: Green, Lambeth, Getsinger|
Thanks. Wow, Clay and I are related. I will continue the research with him.
|Clay Homister||Lucinda Getsinger Green Lambeth|
RE; Your request for information.
You are correct, they are two different woman. They were sisters. Emma died in 1925 and the information I have is that Lucinda (my g-grandmother)and Mr. Lambeth were married around 1926/1927 in Rusk county. Lucinda is recorded as his wife in the 1930 census, living in Henderson TX. Mr. Lambeth's DC list Lucinda as his surviving spouse in 1937. After that she just falls of the grid, I have been unable to find any further info. on her. Maybe she re-married, changed her name and moved away. I don't know. I'm still researching.
I hope this is helpful.
