Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a professional photographer and genealogist (over 50 years), and long time historian of Coleman County, Texas (over 40 years). Over 20 years ago, I, along with my wife, Judia, and Vena Bob Gates, published all of the marked grave inscriptions in Coleman County, Texas in the 3 volume, "Coleman County Cemetery Inscriptions." I also have these records online at

Judia and I both continue to visit cemeteries, but I do all the computer work. Judia is an artist and does not relate to computers ... she is soooo lucky!

I have welcomed FindAGrave to help carry on what myself, my wife and others are doing to keep local history information available and not forgotten. I began in the middle of March 2011 adding burials that have not been added for Coleman County.

I look forward to hearing from anyone interested in the cemeteries and history of Coleman County. Ralph Terry, Coleman, Texas.

RE: Clarence Douglas - 68622024
Leave as you have them. They are relatives of my husband's mother as her mother was a Douglas. I was trying to delete my declined memorials. Sorry. If you have any info on this person or other Douglas family; please let me know as I have quite a bit of the family info. Nice working with you. Thanks.

William Charles Knight 1833
Thank you for your excellent work recording the cemeteries in Coleman County. My uncle, Chester A. Hockett, used to correspond with you many years ago and shared his history of the Jordan Ranch. I am very confused about your record #100949217 for Martha Maranza Owen Knight. You list the date of death for William Knight as 1928. Did you find a grave for him? I am desperately trying to find a death record for William C. Knight. Family tradition has him dying before his wife. Thank you if you can shed some light on where the death date for William Knight came from on his wife's Find A Grave site.

Thank you!

Lulu Whittington
Mr. Terry,
Do you have access to other pictures of Lulu and Arthur Whittington? Lulu was a Worthy Matron at Mart Chapter No. 109, Order of the Eastern Star in 1907-1908. She would have been 33 yrs old. We would like to have a picture of her.

Terry, just wondering if you were planning to add the remainder of Rebecca's children to her?

Harlow Maxwell
I can't find anything on the death of Harlow Maxwell. A family record said that he died as a baby about 1926. Lois's obit names him as living, the father's doesn't. You might could find an obit.

Thank You Ralph, for taking the pictures of Joe, Ruby and W. Patton (Alden) today in Coleman. It's great having pictures of them on the web pages.

Wilmer Clark # 75855371
I was so happy to see newspaper article about Wilmer Clark. He was my uncle. I had always heard the story that he died hoping a train, but had no proof or details.
Would you please send me a copy of this article?
My email is on my findagrave page.
Thank you,
Virginia Clark Brown
