Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a mother of 2 and grandmother of 6. I am raising my two oldest grandchildren. I am a hired genealogy and documents researcher in Lamar County, Texas and surrounding counties. But, I love to volunteer a little here and there. This is why I like to help others so if there is a tombstone pic in a cemetery in my area, that you would like to have...I am only an email away. I was also a volunteer at, before they shut the site down. I am currently also the Lamar Co. Genealogical Society Library librarian and the volunteer worker on Thursday mornings...and any other time one of the volunteers can not make it. Please visit the Lamar County Genealogy site online. It is a great site and has lots of good information on area ancestors and history.

Am researching my birth mother's family: Ward, Lisenbee, Wiggins, Kays, Summerall, Stennett, Noel.

My birth father's family: Smith, Caviness, not sure yet the rest. Just found out about a year ago who he was.

Adopted father's family: Cornett, McGuire, Warren, Fuller from Red River Co.,Texas, before that Bienville Parish, Louisiana.

Adopted mother's family: Moore, Wood, Jordan from Falls Co., Texas

My father-in-law's family: Usry, Lloyd, Watts from Hugo, Choctaw Co., Oklahoma and Bennington, Bryan Co., Oklahoma, and Indian Territory, Oklahoma.

My mother-in-law's family: Bryan, Ballard, Anderson, from Lamar Co., Texas,

Would be happy to show you how to start researching your family tree.

Good luck and happy hunting!
Debra Usry

W.J.B. Lloyd - 107571314
Hi, I posted the obituary for W.J.B. Lloyd and I also did some research and wrote a bio for him and linked him to some of his other relatives. Let me know if you would like any changes.

RE: Benjamin Fisher photo request
you will have to email them or call them again and request the information, what the person gave you when you called is incomplete. We have to know what section that Lot is in, there are over 100 sections at the cemetery, none are called Section 81.
I am sorry they gave you an incomplete location.

The number is 214 371 1336 or to contact them and have them email you the locations, the link to their website to fill out the form is:

I am going this afternoon so if you call you can get it in time for me to get the photo.

Benjamin Fisher photo request
Hi, the volunteers would be happy to fill your photo request however we will need a burial location to do so. The info in your plot field is incomplete. The plot location must have a section number. The cemetery is over 300 acres so a section will have attained. Can you please contact Laurel Land and get a burial location for your request.

The number is 214 371 1336 or to contact them and have them email you the locations, the link to their website to fill out the form is:

They are good about responding to the email request! There are over 10 photo requests currently and the volunteers cannot ask for that many locations to fill requests. With a location, your request will get filled pretty quickly. Thanks for your help

RE: John Wallace Bybee photos
Thank you so much for adding the tombstone pictures. I did not get an email indicating they were posted.
It really helps to get confirming or additional information.
It is because of people like you, who go out of your way to assist us, that we are able to link to our family members.

Hattie Josephine Skidmore
It's like she disappeared and only reappeared to document her children's births! I can't find any information, only what you have. I've combed through Red River County marriage books and found nothing. I even went through Lawrence and Sue Dale's excellent book: "Cemetery Records Red River County, Texas". Nothing. I'm wondering if she wandered across the river to McCurtain County, Oklahoma.
I wish I could give you any kind of news, SORRY!!

RE: Mierlan Payne
You are very welcome. About the linking....I know you can link more than one spouse, but like you say, that can get a little dicey with family members. Their call I would say. Take care....
