This site helps preserve our family histories and information that can fade with time from our cemeteries. I'm glad to be able to contribute and want to thank all of you who have contributed to this wonderful resource.|
My husband deserves many thanks for driving me to cemeteries or stopping at ones we see along the road as we travel. He helps me watch where I step and for things that crawl. He has walked many of these cemeteries with me or patiently sat waiting for me.
My Great-Uncle Will walked the cemetery in Cherokee, Texas with me when I was in grade school and told me about some of the people buried there. I wish I had been old enough to realize how important that information was. He was from the time when the men in the community dug the grave for someone for free and it showed love, honor, and respect.
At that same time in my life my Grandmother told me not to step on the graves as a way to show respect. She was also an example of love and respect in her actions as I watched her clear the weeds from my Grandfather's grave by chopping them with a hoe.
If I've created a page for one of your family members or friends, I will respect your request and happily transfer the page to you. Please use the Edit tab on the page to request the transfer so all the information is available.

Went by Morton Cemetery and got the photos. While I was there I also took photos of the other family members in case you need them.

Betty, Thanks for the link to the other site. I found that I inadverently had created two memorials for Tommy so I deleted one. The other one is memorial 78554486 and has him linked to his parents. Today I added a memorial for Tommy's brother who died in Mississippi in 2013 but I haven't been able to figure out where the Gist Cemetery is that is referenced in the obituary. On Tommy's bio, I used a tiny bit of what was on that memorial and I also went to his military record to confirm things. I still need to do some work on Charles Harris Gist but that will have to wait an hour or two.

I'm the granddaughter of Addie Finklea Williamson. Wondering if your are related to the Finklea family?
Thanks for linking the Harris family...and for establishing their memorials! Brice

Thanks for the photo!!
check out Freddie Rond in Memory Gardens Cemetery Hobbs, New Mexico.
Hi Betty! You posted a photo of a double headstone to memorial #4965898. I was wondering if you might click on her spouse's link and add the same photo's to it... Thanks!

Good idea to note that markers are missing. I didn't find them either when I visited the cemetery in 1973.
Thank you so much for trying on this one. I was guided by family papers but will re-group now. I am most grateful.
