Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Laurel. I'm married and live in Central Texas. I just recently became involved in several groups on Facebook, Historic Texas Cemeteries and Cemetery Explorers. And also Find A Grave. I just enjoy visiting cemeteries, especially older cemeteries. I find a peace and tranquility there; I also find the history very interesting. I enjoy being able to find graves for other people, the joy that it brings to them. I personally am researching the Ioor/Joor family history after discovering three brothers buried at an old cemetery near my home. I am related to the Jones, Ritchey, Edge and Brymer families in Williamson County and Lee County. I also have my father's family at Pilot Grove Cemetery (Clark, Parker) and Hillcrest Cemetery (Allen) in Bell County. I have not added very many memorials, but I will consider transferring a Memorial to direct family. I hope that I can help you if you need a picture of a certain grave in my area. I'll do my best.

Landgraf memorials in Bosque County
Thank you very much, Laurel, for the fine information. Itís always helpful if a family member (descendant) can fill-in between the lines. I see that Linda Huff originally gathered her information from death certificates. (Linda passed away in December 2011.)

I now have both Max and Theodore linked as sons of Adolph and Annie. I also added Annie as wife of Adolph.

Do you have more information about a wife of Theodore and any children of either Max or Theodore? I do not put Death Certificates on memorial pages but it is nice to add an Obituary of the deceased if you have any that you could forward to me as text, either Word or PDF?

Thank you again for trying to link all the family together, it is a noble goal and I am happy to help you with that goal. Feel free to use my direct e-mail address for future communications.

Infant Boy Culpepper
Thank you for the Culpepper family information. And, yes please, let me know if you learn anything more about the family. P.S. I'm not related to this family. Please let me know if you are interested in a transfer of management of this memorial to your care. I appreciate you!

I have Laura Crow Gatlin at Sadler Cemetery.
You need to contact the person who put her in Warren Miller Cemetery.

I sent the guy that has her memorial a photo retouch of Nora. Haven't heard back from him, yet, but hopes he liked his surprise.

I have a few more to do, that I have put off, since they were really damaged or bad scans. So I will get those done this week.

I have linked or gotten people to link some of our shared groups.

RE: Amanda Jane Hayes Jones
I am waiting on information from your cousin, Wanda Meyer. She has worked on the tree for a long time. Very nice lady! I just love her! She says, Marmaduke and Amanda were married about a year(?) then he died. I know the age difference is big, but a lot of younger women married older men with Confederate pensions.

I, too, want the info to be as accurate as I can make it. Wanda is putting together a Jones report for me soon.

Joseph Mayhew
I am the manager for him and now I am totally confused!
I gave pictures to Linda Furr and she did the research for this man. Before passing she transferred all of those I gave pictures. I will be doing some digging for more info! Where I have confusion is Not sure if this is the same Joseph Mayhew for dates and locations do not match up! Give me a little time but do keep on reminding me! More Mayhews in Tulare County, Ca.

I'll try to get out to the cemetery in the next week or two. A lot depends on the weather, plus all things happening this month. At any rate, I'll do my best.
