Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi, my name is Debbie and I live in Fort Worth, Texas.

Thanks to my father's passion for old cemeteries, I have always been a graver at heart.

I take pictures with a great deal of respect for those who have walked before us. If I manage a memorial of a direct relative of yours (within four generations), please email me and I will transfer ownership. Please note that I reserve the right to maintain my own ancestors memorials. Also, feel free to use any of my headstone photos for your genealogy website or any other legitimate purpose.

I would like to thank all the wonderful people I have meet along the way, photo volunteers and cemetery transcribers that have help me with my own genealogy.

I'm researching the Gibbons, Sparks, Hendricks and Collins, in or around Denton County, Texas; The Crawley, Dean, Dickson, Rayburn, Riley and Brackett families from Grayson, Collin, Floyd, Crosby, Potter, County, Texas and Harmon County, Oklahoma.

Most Wanted - If anyone with information on William Jordon Dickson, Sr. (b) 1860, in Lafayette, Mississippi and lived in Grayson, Collin, Floyd, Crosby and Terry, Texas from 1900 - 1941, please let me know. William (d) June 30, 1941 in Brownfield, Terry County, Texas. He was married to Lee Riley (d) 1909 and widow Maud Shackelford Moran (d) 1955 in Kern County, California.

Please contact me via the SAC tab ("Edit" then "Suggest A Correction") on any memorial I have created. PLEASE DO NOT send transfer requests, relationship links or additional information for memorials via the public messages option.

Louis Tuck
I have been trying to find what became of my grandmother's brother, Lewis/Louis Tuck. His wife was Annie (Stern). There is a death cert for your Louis Tuck, who died of knife wounds at age 44 in 1918 (>b 1873 or 74). There is a Hellandbrand Family Tree on Ancestry which indicates that this is the same person I am looking for.
The information I have is that my grandfather's brother was born in 1883 in Lithuania (Russia).
Do you have any further information on the Louis who is buried in Ft.Worth?

Thorp T. D. Andrews
May I share some information with you on memorials that you have set up at Oakwood Cemetery, Tarrant County, Ft. Worth, TX? Thorp T. D. Andrews was married twice. His first wife was Mary Sanford who died in 1895. He then married a second time to Mary Offutt Adams. The memorial for Maymie Adams Andrews, #3939003 is actually a duplicate of the memorial for Mary O. Andrews. Perhaps this memorial for Maymie could be deleted and the Maymie added as a nickname on the memorial for Mary O. Andrews. Also, perhaps Mary O. Andrews could be linked to her husband, Thorp T. D. Andrews. Thank you.

Thank you for pointing out my error. It was a mis-type on my part. I have corrected it now. I hope you will now consider linking Joseph Gardner Watkins to his mother.

Hi Debbie
This is a bit of a long shot but I am trying to find a great uncle of mine who travelled with his brother to USA in the 1880s.His brother ( my grandfather) returned sometime in the 1890s but he remained. I am in possession of a letter that he sent from Fort Worth dated 1892 to his dad back here in England,
I would love to be able to give this letter to his direct descendants but am struggling to find any. It is a great letter detailing his travels across America inc encounters with native Americans and buffalo hunting!

If you know of any graves that might match to him I would be really grateful.

Many thanks
Rena Randall (nee Nash)

Henry O. Outcalt
Hi Debbie, thank you for your note regarding the husband of Susan Compton Worden. Henry O. Outcalt has long been a mystery to my research. I now am in possession of of a number of records where our ancestors confirm in writing that he died at sea. Although, I don't have the exact ship etc., it has been confirmed he died at sea. I recently visited Rutgers University where my ancestor William Judson Outcalt Jr., donated his genealogy works and he also confirmed that Henry O. Outcalt died and was buried at sea. I appreciate your interest and feeback,but, I am very certain he died at sea.

Best Regards,
Andy Outcalt

Thanks so much for the very nice and informative bio you've posted to Campbell Poynor's memorial. It has helped me to finally find the correct maiden name for a lady in one of the lines of our Winkler family.
