I specalize in babies (because they never got a chance) and veterans (because they gave us the chances that we have).
I'm hampered by 14K dial-up, so putting in fotos takes a while, be patient.
As a result of sub-service speed, I do most of my postings between 0400-0700 Texas time when internet usage is at a minimum.
Retired from GTE dba Verizon in Plano, Tx in 2007 after 27 years.
The dog in the foto is Precious, she is my constant traveling companion, mess with me and she goes into action, for real. !!!

RE: Gravley cemetery, georgia
Glad you found the cemetery. Have they improved the the road? Or is it still full of ruts.

My great-grandfathers tombstone has been repaired by the good people of the Chatfield Methodist Church. Thank you for posting the picture of the fallen tombstone. If you are out that way again please retake the photo.

Thanks so much

Thanks for your military service. Ran into your profile while researching my family.
Take care.

Thank you for interest in making sites as complete as possible. Sometimes it is very difficult to find reliable information and when in doubt I do not add. But there is great pleasure in finding the pieces of history and data to make the right connections! I applaud your interest in the memorolized person and it's not just another number. Thanks!

Allen Family - Henson Cemetery, Fayette Co., TX
Hi James -

Thank you for all you've done to record graves!! I have been helping a friend research her Allen family and came across all of your work. I don't know if anyone else has written you about this, but on "Thegsaloni Allen" you asked for other possible suggestions for the given name. Well, I had run across the given name Thessalonia in some of my research and wondered if it might be the correct name here. I found this record on I think that you can see that the death date on the gravestone could also be read 1965, instead of 1988.

Social Security info:
Name: Thessaloni Allen
SSN: 457-24-2046
BORN: 12 Nov 1924
Died: Dec 1965
State (Year) SSN issued: Texas (Before 1951)

Furthermore, you will note that the parents listed on the death certificate info below are also buried in Henson Cemetery and that you recorded their graves.

Death Certificate #74519 Bexar County:
Thessalonia Allen, a black male, son of Wiltz Allen and Clara Houston Allen.
Construction truck driver
Died in San Antonio from a myocardial infarction
Buried in "Muldoon Cemetery", Muldoon, TX handled by Eunice Funeral Home

Even though the death certificate says Muldoon Cemetery instead of Henson Cemetery, I think that there is enough other evidence to be certain that this is the person you have listed as Thegsaloni Allen. Wishing you continued success! Marylyn Douthit
