Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi, I am a native of Bay City, TX. My main cemeteries that I take pictures at are: Cedarvale-Bay City Cemetery, Roselawn in Van Vleck (in process of documenting the whole cemetery), Historical Matagorda Cemetery in Matagorda, Eastview in Bay City and Hawley in El Maton. I am also a member of the Matagorda Co. Genealogy Society and the Matagorda County Historical Commission. SO...any pictures that I take will also appear in the TXGENWEB--Matagorda Co. (which is a great place to find interesting facts about Matagorda County.)

Thanks to everyone who submits information, but. . .please do not place copies of death certificates on memorials. This information can be typed into bios and leaves room for photographs.

I enjoy the search and challenge of finding the graves. Photo requests get my highest priority. When I go out to fulfill a photo request, I photograph all the markers in the family plot. The rules I follow; "Photograph the grave/gravesite "in-situ", or as it appears in that moment in time. The purpose is to show the grave as it is, be it dirty, cluttered, broken, or pristine. It is not your job to clean it, clear it, fix it, or decorate it. The graves are not yours to do as you please. Remember, one person's "good deed" just might be another person's vandalism. Go take lots of photos...but do it like an anthropologist and do not disturb the grave site. -AJ" Mar. 10, 2013

If I can be of any assistance, please contact me. Blessings...Prissy53

Sims graves
Thank you for adding Merritt C. & Ruth Simsí gravestone in Van Vleck (my PeePa & Grandma). Her middle name is actually ĎAnoraí, though Iím surprised a middle name is included on the listing since itís not on the stone. Since youíre a native of Bay City you may have known my cousins, Neil & Milton Sims.

James Preddy
Hi There - you sent me an edit for James Preddy - but without dates I'm not sure if it is James Thomas Preddy or his son James Reynolds Preddy who is buried in that cemetery. Can you send me more information? Thanks

Henry #121436673
Name: Sussana Henry dau of Jacob Pfrimmer
Birth: 13 May 1852 - Germany
Death: 18 Jul 1931 - Palacios, Matagorda, Texas
I think tis the actual info for this person, but according to death certificate she is buried in Palacios. I know the Annie Henry #121323150 info is correct except her full name was Sarah Jane Susanna "Annie" Shaw Henry and she was the wife of 121436572. but this other Sussana Henry is a mystery to me. B

Annie Henry
You have Annie Henry and Sarah Jane Susanna "Annie" Shaw Henry at Cedarvale in Bay City. The information on death for Annie is correct, however the info on Sarah is not. They are the same person. This is my great-grandmother. Would you consider transferring her as well as William "Poppa" Henry, Charles and Mary I Shaw Henry to me. There are several others also, John & Effie Clayton, Margaret Margie" and Sue Jenkins Clayton, Lillian Martin and W J Clayton at Roselawn. These are my grandparents and their children. Thank you, Betty
