Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi, I am a native of Bay City, TX. My main cemeteries that I take pictures at are: Cedarvale-Bay City Cemetery, Roselawn in Van Vleck (in process of documenting the whole cemetery), Historical Matagorda Cemetery in Matagorda, Eastview in Bay City and Hawley in El Maton. I am also a member of the Matagorda Co. Genealogy Society and the Matagorda County Historical Commission. SO...any pictures that I take will also appear in the TXGENWEB--Matagorda Co.

Thanks to everyone who submits information, but. . .please do not place copies of death certificates on memorials. This information can be typed into bios and leaves room for photographs.

I enjoy the search and challenge of finding the graves. Photo requests get my highest priority. When I go out to fulfill a photo request, I photograph all the markers in the family plot. The rules I follow; "Photograph the grave/gravesite "in-situ", or as it appears in that moment in time. The purpose is to show the grave as it is, be it dirty, cluttered, broken, or pristine. It is not your job to clean it, clear it, fix it, or decorate it. The graves are not yours to do as you please. Remember, one person's "good deed" just might be another person's vandalism. Go take lots of photos...but do it like an anthropologist and do not disturb the grave site. -AJ" Mar. 10, 2013

If I can be of any assistance, please contact me. Blessings...Prissy53

I just looked at it. Darn I didn't contain a clue. Well it will be a mystery still for at least a little while.
But again thank you for your time and beautiful photo.

I am not aware of doing more than one posting for
Georgia Schwarz.

The reason that there is more than one posting:

I MADE A MISTAKE !!! HAVE YOU Made a mistake

during you lifetime?

Hi Prissy53,I know this is a strange a question...You did a great photo for Georgia Schwarz # 112780328. In the center of her stone is a ribbon, would you know what was written on it?.
We were hoping for a clue as we never knew what her last husbands first name was.She was my mother in laws sister, and Georgia moved to Texas and no one remembered his name. Thank you
