Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired university teacher and librarian with interest in Civil War burials and burial practices. Also undertaking to photograph all cemeteries in Erath County, TX, and surrounding counties, then to enter the tombstone information into the database. Many older tombstones are in such shape as to be illegible, so corrections to bad or missing biographical information is welcomed.

Please make requests for additions, corrections, links, etc., directly from the memorials' "edit" feature rather than here. I'll get to them much faster. (Transfers to direct descendants, please, and not in bulk lots!)

Rosetta O (Jones) Burleson
Hi Ken, are you by any chance related to Rosetta, or Rose, O? (Jones) Burleson, born about 1855, wife of Luther Franklin Burleson (Memorial #14388354). Luther died at age 44 & I was able to find Rose up through the 1930 census in the Stephenville, Erath Co, TX area, but lost her after that- presuming that she may have remarried as I haven't been able to find her under the name Rose or Rosetta Jones or Burleson. So, grasping at straws, I hope that maybe your descend from her family & may know more about her,where she is buried, & under what name, etc? Thanks for any help with this, Jim Mullins

Flight Officer Clvis C. Newman
Flight Officer Clvis C. Newman was a crewmember on board of a plane of the 23rd Photo Squadron, 5th Reconnaissance Group. He was lost on 3 July 1943 over the Mediterrean Sea. His bosdy was never accounted for. His name is inscribed on the Wall of Missing of the Carthage, North Africa Cemetery in Tunisia.

You took a picture of his cenotaph. Can I have your permission to use the picture you took for my GELA Cemetery project. Gela Cemetery was on of the four temporary American cemeteries in Sicily. Over 1,200 men and women were buried here between July 1943 and April 1947.

I have already finished my project early this month (July 2015); the DVD is named "They stayed behind". One of the chapters is about the missing and want to add the picture you took of his cenotaph. You will be credited

thank you

Transfer Request # 52581445
Dear Ken,

Mary Eugenia Edmonds Griffin was my husband's great grandmother. We visited her grave in 2005 and I was going to post her picture but saw you had already done so. Would you consider transferring her to me? I've been the family historian since 1997 and would love to add a few more things to her site.

Thank you so much for all you do!

Theresa

Dorothy and I are double cousins and were brought up together more like sisters than cousins. Thank you for your consideration.
