Bio and Links
A lot of work goes into researching a person whether we do this for ourselves or for someone else. At times we all could be looking up several people to get to that one we are looking for. With that being said, we all are capable of making mistakes. So, for all those of you that want to send me or anyone else an ugly email, stop, take a deep breath and re-read what I have written.

If by chance I have made a mistake, please let me know. I will be more than happy to change the data. As Billy Joel would say "We're only human, we're suppose to make mistakes".

If I have someone that is related to you, I will be more than happy to transfer as long as I am not related to that person.

Please note: The photos uploaded to Find A Grave are meant for cemetery documentation and for personal family genealogical use. They may NOT be used on any other Internet Sites including Ancestry.com

Also, I would very much like to thank all the photo takers of all the headstones. Without you all, there would be many questions. So THANK YOU ALL!

Thanks.

Files Valley Cemetery
You are receiving this note because you are a FindAGrave Contributor with ties to the Files Valley Cemetery
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=3585 near Itasca, TX. By ties, I mean that you created memorials, maintain memorials, added photos and/or notes to memorials in that cemetery. After reading below, if you do not wish to remain on this list, please reply to bmcever@sbcglobal.net, asking to be removed and it will be done immediately. Currently there are 84 Contributors on the list.

I was raised in the small community 5 mi. east of Itasca called Files Valley. http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=mr&MRid=47129367&
I attended elementary school there through 1952 and my parents ran the grocery store. There are still folks living there but the main thing still there is the Files Valley Cemetery.

Recently, two events occurred that that have a significant impact on the future of the cemetery.
1) The loss of Kenneth Stufflebeme, the long time Trustee of the Trust fund set up before 1992 by my Dad (Robert McEver), Aunt (Annie Mae McEver McMillan), Joe Price and others.
2) The bridge across the creek to the cemetery was washed away during recent flooding of the Files Valley Creek. There is currently no access to the cemetery for visiting or mowing, etc.

I wish to express my deepest sympathies to Kenneth’s wife Edwina along with sons Mike & Jim. The loss of Kenneth’s role with the cemetery, while significant, is nothing compared to the family’s loss.

Living in Houston makes it difficult for me to evaluate what options exist for dealing with these issues. I do know that there are some actions already underway to address problems. I have the name of another Trustee but I have been unable to locate contact info. I also understand that another Files Valley resident, Mark Wood, is working on getting a bridge across the creek in another location that would provide access to the cemetery. The Hill County Commissioner for that precinct has confirmed that, because the cemetery and access road is on private property, the County will not provide any funds for reestablishing access. The Files Valley Cemetery Trust Fund along with other private parties with interest in preserving the cemetery may have to provide funding. Any payment out of the Trust Fund will jeopardize the ability to continue maintenance, mowing, etc.

If you or anyone you know has information that would help us in sorting out these issues, please email me at bmcever@sbcglobal.net or call 713-252-7222.

As my profile indicates, I, along with others on this list, have a detailed knowledge of this cemetery. Out of the 426 memorials currently noted, there are 24 memorials with no markers. I am very confident that all of the markers there have been photographed meaning that there are 24 unmarked graves or some memorials have been placed in the wrong cemetery. If you maintain a memorial without a tombstone icon, especially if the memorial has been added in the last few years, please check your source info to confirm that you have the correct cemetery.

Finally, I have a plot map created from Google image. It cannot be posted on the FindAGrave site because of copyright issues but it does have useful detail. I will provide it for your personal use if you provide me with your email address.

Thank you for reading this lengthy note. There is much going on.

Reading your Find A Grave page about photos. I have audited several cemeteries and you are so right about photos. Location of the tombstones often paint a picture of a family. Especially for infants too young to be in a census. Thanks for the family links to memorials that I have entered. I am working on a cemetery now that most of the burials are in defined family plots with many of them listing from 1830's to present and often including the maiden name on the stones. Very interesting but lots of work.

Robert now has a picture of the correct gravestone even though the incorrect one is still posted. Perhaps Susie Kasper has gone inactive. Hope that helps.

Trammel's in Alabama
Teresa,

I am very interested in sharing information with you. I am a descendant of Thomas W. Trammel who lived in Alabama. My Great Grandfather, Noah Trammel, was Thomas W's son. Noah had a brother named Dennis and I was under the impression that the Dennis you have entered a record on was his brother, but we did NOT have a Tilman/Tillman in our tree. Can we share info to see if there is a connection somewhere?

I live in Central Alabama and have been digging around since about 2000 trying to get my information as accurate as possible.

I would appreciate your help and expertise.

Oh yes
Also, did you realize the discrepancy in Henry's year of death (1966/1968)from the marker to what is shown on his page? Do you know the reason for this?

Crow/Crowe & Earwood
Hello,
My maternal great grandmother Willie Crow/e was married to a man named Jess(i)e Crow/e. This was a second marriage for him, possibly third for her. His previous wife was Fannie, I think? Do you have any info on my grandmother such as where she was from, etc?

Willie was the mother of James Henry Earwood and as I understand from my late mother, is buried at Crossroads next to Henry, but has no marker. Do you know if this is correct?

Thanks for any help you can provide...
