|Bio and Links|
I was born in Las Vegas, NV. My father helped build Hoover Dam from 1931-1936. I entered most of the graves in the Milford Cemetery. I also entered all of the Milford Black Cemetery names that I could find by going through death certificates for Ellis County, TX. I hope something that I entered will help you in your search. So many of you out there have helped me. I love doing genealogy. I like the challenge of finding families and linking them together. I will gladly add information to anyone I have entered. |
The families I am related to are Nelson from Arkansas, Texas, and California; Reynolds from Arkansas; Tackett from Arkansas; Stricklin,Stricklen,Strickland from Arkansas; Delaney, Dauer, & Taub from Illinois. Thanks for any tidbits of information.

|Chris Wadley||RE: Fred Robinson|
Thank you so much for the information. I'm a few thousand miles away in Idaho, so I won't be able to meet, but it's good information for me to put in the family history portfolio I'm compiling for descendants of the Robinson line.
|C. C||Clarence Dawson|
Thank you so much for your extreme efforts to locate and photograph Clarence Dawson's grave in Milford Cemetery . cc

|Kathy Robinson||RE: Thomas Gilkey|
Ha, ha, I know what you mean about "cemetery guru"....I call myself the "cemetery nazi"!
I didn't create Thomas Gilkey's memorial....I requested a photo of his tombstone "HOPING" that whoever created the memorial was correct about his burial location. I'm sorry I sent you on a wild goose chase....I will delete my request. I really didn't know he wasn't buried there, I swear! Thank you for your efforts and for sending me an email letting me know he wasn't buried there, I appreciate it!
|speell||RE: David C Sparks|
Thank you, Angie. I've added the obituary and made the necessary changes to his data.

|Deborah Morgan||RE: James R. Sneed|

|Deborah Morgan||james r sneed|
do you remember exactly where his grave is located in the Milford Cemetary.
|Bob & Bonnie McEver||Files Valley Cemetery|
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 email@example.com.
Regards and thanks for all your work for FindAGrave.

Yes...I loved hearing my Dad talk about it - He, my Mom and my 2 older sisters lived at Rag Town in a sheep wagon. He was about 24 when he got the job of oiler on a crane.
Then he learned to handle dynamite, which my mother hated him doing. He had what they called dynamite headaches for years afterward from inhaling the fumes. I have to write his story someday! Nice to talk to you - I will try to find the site you mentioned. (We were in Vegas on construction jobs when the Strip was a few gas stations! - Dad turned down buying one for $1,500, kit and kabootle - Ha!)

Hey Angie - my Dad worked on Boulder Dam also! He refused to call it Hoover! Ha!
I am sending you an edit on a Civil War Solder you have listed, George Wesley Paul - if you want a copy of his Surviving Soldier papers, I have it.
