Bio Photo Hi, my name is Suzanne Tarkington.

New Year 2014. We have made a move to Goliad County which is great because that is where my Dad's side of the family is from. So now I will concentrate my searching and photographing in the cemeteries around goliad, vicoria and port lavaca.

I live in Kerens Texas and have ready access to cemeteries in and around Kerens. My closest are Bazette Baptist Church cemetery and Prairie Point cemetery, but I will do my best to get to the cemeteries in Henderson County also.

If you have any requests, please let me know and I will be happy to go and photograph the grave site.

I'm also a genealogy researcher which is how I became interested in Find A Grave. I also do headstone rubbings. This is a great way to preserve stones that are getting weather worn.

I have completed photographing all the headstones (that are readable) at Post Oak Cemetery. There are 3 headstones that I will do rubbings on and will post.I have also completed photographing all the headstones at Oak Grove cemetery in Kerens.

My next project is to photograph all the stones at the Eureka cemetery, Bazette cemetery and Prairie Point cemetery. There are some beautiful stones at all of them that I want to do rubbings on.

I have a book with all the names of the people buried in Bazette and Prairie Point cemeteries. A lot of the names also have family info (ie parents names, children, etc). Please message me via find a grave to be given this information.

I'm a retired nurse so I have 7 days a week to do it. Please allow me the full 14 days to get the photograph taken and up on the memorial page.

If you want to use the images I have photographed, please contact me.

Hello, Happy New Year !

Do you have any photos of James Sr and Nettie?

I would like to include them on Ancestry in my Gilkey Family Tree.

I can post James Jr and Fannie to Find A Grave if you would like me to.

Wrong Cemetery City

My mother, Frances Gordon, is buried in Resthaven Memorial Park in Lubbock, Lubbock county, Texas with her husband Wayland Wane Gordon. Corsicana, in Navarro County, Texas is where she was born. Frances Gordon is my mother.

Hope you will make the corrections soon.

Thank you.

Thank you so much for all the wonderful work you have done photographing. I am writing to ask for permission to use the beautiful photo you took for my husband's 4th great grandmother, Matilda Nichols (#99302310)in our family research. I tend to keep our trees private, but I do share from time to time with relatives and I always include a credit to the photographer. Thanks in advance for your consideration and a big thank you from our family who appreciate that you have saved a part of our history from being forgotten.

Thank you so much!
Thank you for all your hard work, and specifically for the pictures of my aunt & uncle's headstone (Robert C. and Ilse Crocker).

Can you please tell me how you do a rubbing on a gravestone? I would like to clean the one for my mother & stepfather before I post it on their findagrave memorial. Thank you again! Belinda Allan.

Duplicate listing - Wayne Henry West
You have a listing for Wayne Henry West #102119760
which is a duplicate to the one I have attached below. Please consider deleting your duplicate for Wayne as it is confusing when doing a search.

Thank you - G_W

Elva Camp and Andrew Tarkington
Hi Suzanne, I assume you are related since your name is Tarkington. My question is, do you have a photo of Elva Camp Tarkington? I put one of Andrew on his memorial, just seems a shame I don't have one for Elva. I am related, but i never knew her and would like to see what she looked like. Thanks.
