|Bio and Links|
|My wife and I do genealogy so we have been in a lot of libraries, cemeteries, court houses and outhouses all around the USA. At first, I started photographing only my family and friends' tombstones. It therefore became a duty to take pictures of all the markers in the cemeteries throughout Ellis county.|
Several of the names and dates which are already listed that do not yet have photos, contain many errors. After taking their tombstone pictures, I have noticed those mistakes when comparing the actual inscriptions with the information that has already been uploaded. I also see a lot of people listed more than once, which throws off the number of graves indicated.
If and when I make a mistake please e-mail me and I will gladly correct it. If the person is a relative or friend and you wish to manage the listing, I will happily relinquish ownership and transfer it over to you. We are members of the Ellis County Genealogical Society which meets the 1st Monday of each month, 7:00 pm, at the Ellis County Woman's Building, 407 West Jefferson Street in Waxahachie. Membership is open to anyone interested in family history. Dues are $20 per calendar year and includes a subscription to ECGS quarterly publication, Searchers & Researchers.

This relates to the status of the cemetery in Files Valley, TX. In the 1970s, a board was established to oversee maintenance of the cemetery. All of the board members are now deceased. In order to insure some level of maintenance going forward, a new board should be established. A meeting seems necessary to reestablish the board and the first group to make contact with, before going to the general population of the community, in my opinion, should be those FindAGrave Contributors who have shown an interest and demonstrated some effort to preserve the memory of those interred there. If you have experience in managing small cemeteries and/or the interest to participate in this process, please contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Regards and thanks for all your work for FindAGrave.
