Bio and Links
Bio Photo Tony and Patricia Strickland (Logan) were married in 1961.

Upon retirement from the Army Tony pursued a career in Industrial Security management.

Fully retired we enjoy many things we did not have time for during the working days, like golfing, stained glassworks, as well other projects such as Find-a-Grave, volunteer at our church, as well enjoying grand parenting and great-grand parenting.

Our largest single project, the listing and photographing ALL laid to rest in our church cemetery, Saint Marys, Sherman Texas, is completed, and ongoing as more individuals are laid to rest. We are now focusing our attention to Cedarlawn Memorial Park here in Sherman.

Properly attributed, any photo that we have posted may be used in your family records. This includes Ancestry and published family history books.

If we added a memorial from someone's immediate family, we will gladly transfer ownership if requested, and will share larger photos if we still have them.

Thank you for your kindness!
Tony & Patricia,

Thank you so much for taking your time, effort, and resources to take a picture of my great-grandfather's headstone recently, and for posting it onto I truly appreciate you!

My g-g-pa was John Melvin Dawn, and having an image of his headstone means a lot. This is a tremendously helpful website and service.

Kudos and applause to you for being such great volunteers and support for those of us trying to find our people.

Myrna Bernice Wilson - #141737161
Hi Tony and Patricia,
In July 2014, you put a gravestone photo on Bobby Francis Wilson memorial #99052179. His wife, Bernice passed last month, and we were wondering if you could put the same photo on Bernice's memorial, #141737161. Bernice was a Aunt to us.

We really appreciate if you could help us.
Thank you,
Carleen and Jerry
