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 hope that I can help you if you need a picture of a certain grave in my area. I'll do my best

RE: Mary Wallace Joor
I would like a picture of that also. I live in Maryland so it is not possible for me to get one but I believe I have requested a photo knowing the chances are slim of getting one. I believe 'we' were lucky to get one of her husband's!! So you just have to keep an eye on her memorial to see if one is ever submitted.

Best of Luck, Andrea

RE: Blocker Cemetery
You are very welcome! I almost didn't find the cemetery. It was on someone's private property. We drove down the lane that was marked private and had a sign that said "Blocker House" and knocked on the door of the house to see if they knew of a Blocker Cemetery. They were very gracious to let us thru a private gate and gave directions to the cemetery which was located around to the left and back of the home. I have done a little research on the Blocker home and thought you might like to see some of what I found. I hope it will help you with your family history research.

Because this is a private cemetery, I tried to get pictures of as many graves as possible. It was almost dark by the time we found it, and many of the graves were not readable. I will work on trying to match them up with others persons listed under the Blocker Cemetery, however it will have to wait a few weeks as I am going out of town tomorrow for a while. I hope this information is helpful to you.

This first link states that only Blocker descendants are buried in the cemetery.

RE: Gray Family
You and I are one in the same. It is very meaningful to bring the babies home to the parents. Yes it does seem silly but it gives us, the living, comfort and purpose. Use what ever you need. If they are remembered then mission accomplished!

Davis Cemetery
Hello,
I've never visited the cemetery, but placed Uncle Dan McLennan and his wife on FindAGrave from their death certificates. All I know are the directions on the cemetery page. I hope someone takes a photo of their unmarked concrete slabs some day. Those are the historic McLennan graves.
Good luck,
TB Willis
