Bio and Links
Bio Photo (Click the image for more.) I do this to honor and pay tribute to those who came before us. I travel frequently to explore family history and enjoy documenting family history for myself and others. Many of the memorials I've created are for people with a family connection--others are ones I've done while walking cemeteries searching for family, and I'm happy to add links, information and corrections. It's a site for sharing, so I've taken volunteer grave marker photos in many states across the U.S. and Canada. Those who follow up with a 'thank you' (since, oddly, about half do not)...'you're welcome.'

Thank you for the photo.
Hello, tdemars

The picture of the marker for Grave Memorial# 16725505, Rev. Moses Speer, is excellent. Thank you. I take it that there was no marker for his wife, Amelia Ewing Speer, found.

Thank you for your contributions to Find-A-Grave.

Raney Family Book
1 April 2013

Raney, Palmer, Campbell, Croley and other cousins,

After many years of research, writing, editing and contacting descendants for family information, I have published 500 copies of my second book, "Raney Family History". The 8 1/2 x 11 book contains 512 pages including 90 pages of photographs and exhibits. I have paid extra for a first class, Smyth sewn, hard cover binding. I have printed enough books for all descendants to have as many extra books as they want. However, there will not be a second printing so you should order as many copies as you want now. The book is divided into five sections as follows.

Section One contains all of the ancestors of my father, Jeff Donald Raney, and chapters containing the descendants of the earliest Raney, Woolley, Harrington, Gibbons, Miller, Oliver, Yeager, Holloway, Hubbard, Petty, Farr and Emfinger ancestors.

Section Two contains all of the ancestors of my mother, Birdie Mae Palmer, and chapters containing the descendants of the earliest Palmer, Way, Osgood, Carroll, Greer, Creel, Dodson, Durham, Henderson, Stokes, Varner, Reich, Burr, Wilkinson, Inglish, Jackson, Richardson and Anderson ancestors.

Section Three contains all of the ancestors of my father-in-law, Greely Jenkins Campbell, and chapters containing the descendants of the earliest Campbell, Watkins, Latson, Phillips, Gamble, Bailey, Yelverton, Hendricks and Williford ancestors.

Section Four contains all of the ancestors of my mother-in-law, Myrtie Bell Croley, and chapters containing the descendants of the earliest Croley, Smith, Pratt, Massey, Rowland, Stapp, Cumpton and Imoe ancestors.

Section Five contains all of the ancestors of my grandchildren and others, and chapters containing the descendants of the earliest Phipps, Barnhill, Evans, Seay, Mills, Poole and Cole ancestors. The last chapter contains my autobiography.

The price for each book is $25.00 and the mailing cost for one book is $5.00 for a total price of $30.00. Additional books can be mailed to the same address for $2.00 each so the cost for two books will be $57.00 and the total cost for three books will be $84.00. Books will be mailed through US Postal Service. Mail your payment with your address and phone number to the following address:

Don Raney, 1506 Comanche Trl., Garland, TX 75043-2524.
Phone questions to: 972-278-3381 or e-mail to:

Thank you for the photo of his grave, I did not have his wife's birth date so that really helped.
Thanks again
