Bio and Links
Bio Photo Having resided in Dallas County, and Mesquite,Tx,my entire life, I have become intrigued with the many small or private cemeteries in Dallas,Kaufman,Van Zandt Counties. Some dating back to the mid or early 19th century,also the cemeteries of East Texas,as my ancestry resided there. Some are neat and well tented. However some have been grossly negleted or vandalized. I fear that much history of the early settlement of our great state will begone forever. If I have made error in my information, please feel free to let me know so I can correct it. If you see I have added a relative and you would like to add more information than what I have, please let me know and I will I will tranfer the memorial to you so you can enter your own. If you have any other questions please e-mail me. I will be glad to answer them.

Findagrave Rules:

I follow FindaGrave's written guidelines regarding transfers (direct relatives within four generations). This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis. A transfer request will be considered ONLY if your exact relationship to the deceased is provided to me. Otherwise, your email will be deleted.

I am ALWAYS glad to add family links, make needed corrections, and to add appropriate bio information (if no bio has been added).

What if a member will not transfer my relative to me?
If the memorial in question is a direct relative within four generations (siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents) to you and the original submitter is not direct family, then your wishes supersede theirs under our "Family First" policy. If they refuse to transfer your relative to you, contact the administration and we will work on it for you.
Please remember that there are thousands of contributors to Find A Grave, and it is highly likely that some of those contributors will actually be part of your family tree and share some of your ancestors.
Also, the goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.

How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?
First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Transferring of management should only be requested If you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Second, Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Third, If you have extensive additions/changes to make to a memorial, please contact the Find A Grave member who created the memorial via the "Suggest a Correction" link under the "Edit" tab on the memorial in question with your request to have the memorial management transferred to you. This will send an email request to the contributor, even if there is not an email address listed on their contributor page.

Fourth, Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer. Bulk surname requests should not be made. Be advised that memorials listed as famous or maintained by Find A Grave will not be transferred.

Fifth, The "Suggest a correction" feature may also be used to submit corrections, an original biography, and family links to memorials that do not fall under the above definition. (Be sure to include the memorial ID#s for the family links and how they are related, father, mother or spouse. The original contributor should make any corrections and add any additional information you have for that memorial, such as links to parents and spouses, provided the information is accurate.

Sixth, Please note that it is not appropriate to request a transfer and then, after receiving the transfer, delete that page and substitute it with a new memorial that you have created. This practice denies credit to the original contributor. Please use the original memorial page to make updates and add information.

Also, the goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.

RE: Benhart William Oehlke
Thank you for making the links. I really appreciate it. Did you all ever come up to Ray & Erna's home here in Lewisville? Our families were so close, we all felt like relatives. God Bless!

Lone Pine cemetery
Was wondering if you would consider a transfer of Steve Landrigan # 127901278 to me Carol Piatt # 46909054. His mother Edna Piatt is my 1st cousin, and I do spend much time on family research and appreciate the help, if you will.
Actually the name of the cemetery is Lone Pine Piatt cemetery. Great grandfather donated 5 acres for this cemetery.

Please and Thank You

Looks like you and I were typing at the same time, I always check before and after creating a memorial page to make sure I am not creating a duplicate. I hate duplicates. :( I'll delete mine in just a moment.

Frank, you did a nice page for Mary McLendon.
Thank you. I added a picture. Someone did a duplicate page. I also live in Dallas. I was wondering if you are a relative to Mary Estelle McLendon? I also linked her with her husband Buck.

Rex, Virginia, Rex Eugene Maynard
These are family members on my dads side of the family. My dad, Jack Maynard, is a first cousin to Rex Maynard. My dad's father, Claude Maynard, was a brother to Rex's mother, Zelda Maynard.

I have these gravesites on Find A Grave if you want to check.

I would like to have them transferred to me if possible. If not, I understand about rules.

Please let me know if this would be ok.

Thank you so much for your time.
