Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have put a great deal of time into creating many of these memorials. I am continually researching the memorials that I've created and often find more things to add. If you have some information you'd like added, let me know.

Please read the Find a Grave policy to see whether your request qualifies a transfer. If it falls within the guidelines, then, please use the EDIT button on the top right of the person's memorial page when you want to request a transfer since it provides me with the link to that memorial.

Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.) will not be transferred. The goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.

I am more than happy to have anyone add their personal photos of people on a memorial. However, I discourage adding death certificates and genealogy material in printed form out of a book.

Emma Cavender
Ok, I've posted the closeup on Emma's memorial.

Hi, I posted the photos as per your request. However, I'll have to get back out and get a closeup of Emma Irene's marker but I did post a group photo of the family markers. Or, you may want to contact the contributor of the duplicate for the memorial named Irene Cavender and have him delete his memorial and post his closeup photo to yours. Either way. FYI, he also has a duplicate for John called John Stokes. Apparently he didn't realize that was a Cavender the way the stone is marked.

E D Allen - Levi Garrett

I know that you do a lot of work at the Prairie Grove Cemetery out from Diboll as well as I do. I have came across a small stone with the 2 names listed above on it that had been placed on top of someone else's stone. The only records that I could come up with is a Elzie D. Allen that died on Oct. 22, 1999 in Angelina County and Wayne L. Garrett that died in Sept. 1988 but no record of either one of these people being buried at Prairie Grove. I have a picture of the stone if you would like to see it.

Walter was Vina's first husband who died during the great influenza of 1919 when my dad was four years old. They are my grandparents through their son Albert Morris. I would like to have the three memorials transferred to me so that I can reflect those additions of names and children from this marriage. Are you tied into this family through the Nelsons? My grandparents were always a mystery to us because they died during my dad's childhood so he didn't have a lot of memories of them. I'd love to share any genealogy info you have.
