I am on the Cemetery Board for the Texico Cemetery. After doing research to try to identify all graves, I realized how important this work is and any help is really appreciated.|

Can you tell me if this is the same Alton that married Wilma Joyce Goldsmith on 9-20-68 in Parmer County, Texas? The thing that threw me off is his residence in NM most of his life.
Thanks and thank you so much for all of your work on findagrave.

Alarm bells went off when I received your message and I have since changed seven or eight others that I had listed both married names. Sometimes when the train gets on a track it just chugs along without thought.
I really do appreciate your message. Thanks again.

Omgosh, very good point. I always look for the family using the memorial numbers so didn't have a problem. It seems that Find a Grave doesn't provide for two or more marriage names. Fair enough, I removed "New" and have tried locating her under just "Haney" and it goes to her without confusion.
Thanks so much for your observation and advice.

Thank you, Marcia, for creating Lil's Find A Grave memorial.
She was very special. Her sisters called her a "jack of all trades". She taught English, Homemaking, Journalism, did the yearbooks, took the pictures, bought the food for the cafeteria and for her classes, drove a school bus and a lot of other things during her years at Texico.
When she got ready to retire, she did not have a birth certificate and the Eastland courthouse had burned down with all the records. So she had to take a picture of her twin's grave marker to prove her age for retirement purposes.
She spent almost every Christmas and Thanksgiving at our house. She is forever missed.

I have come across your name in searching for some of the people from Texico School, so I was wondering if you knew my Aunt Lillie Allman who taught at Texico for many years. She was my Mother's sister and we were really close.

Thank you for your reply.
I can answer two of your questions.
His wife is not buried there. Following his death, she returned to Pennsylvania to live with one of her daughters. She is buried in PA.
As for Hiram's gravetone, sadly you won't find it.
My sister looked for it several years ago with no success. She described the cemetery's condition much as you have. Fortunately, among my files is a photograph of Hiram's gravestone.
At one point, I stumbled onto a woman who had taken a class to the cemetery and inventoried the graves.
She sent me information as to the location of Hiram's grave. I have that somewhere in my files.
When I find it I will send it to you.

I would like to correct an error in my previous message. Hiram died in Parmer County, not Curry.
