Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired from Aerospace and devote my Volunteer time to the new Genealogy and Local History Research branch of the Brownwood Public Library across from the County Courthouse at 213 S. Broadway. Our hours are 9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m., Tuesday thru Saturday. I am a past President of the Pecan Valley Genealogical Society here in Brown County, Texas.
Elkin Cemetery was the first of many rural cemeteries I am photographing markers in and updating new internments. I also am working on "lost" cemeteries and cemeteries just across county lines.
I am a member of the Brown County Historical Commission and a Trustee for the Brownwood Public Library System. I volunteer my time to research historical events, people and places for persons with reasonable requests.

Thank you very much for that obituary. I am always thrilled to find information about my family. That was some good stuff there also.

RE: Elizabeth Isabella Wristen
Thank you for adding the photo. I don't need another one as I have no idea who she is related to.

My husband had a lot of free time that he used entering various memorials and grave photos.

RE: William P. Moseley
Mr. Riley,

Thank you for all that you do!

I'd also like for my grandfather (William Penfield Moseley's son) Joseph Ira Moseley to be linked to William's memorial page.

You can find him in the Moseley Cemetery in Cherokee County Texas. The same cemetery where my great great grandfather Alanson Moseley is buried.

I have no idea how to make that happen!

Thanks again,

Joseph Moseley

Hi Clay
Could you please tell me who is on the opposite side of the same tombstone as mittie o gwin
Its very hard to read
here is the memorial number 8894678

Iam thinking its a child of hers and joseph's,looks like the name is Mittie also..but the light reflects on the tombstone!

Thanks so much for taking the tombstone photo
I had orginally thought mittie was the daughter of james gwin but it turns out she was a daughter in law!

Thank you for the updates to my cousin Beulah's page. Regarding her birthday, in all my sources, about 80% show the July 3 date that's on the headstone, and others give it as July 13, so I'm not totally sure. I appreciate all you've done.

Thank you for the article. I've posted it to his memorial hoping that his family might see it and give us more information regarding this gentleman. Have a blessed day!

RE: Mary Elizabeth Vernon
Hi Clay,

Sorry about that. Mary Elizabeth Vernon is my husband's great aunt on his mother's side of the family. His mother was a Jones, as is Mary Elizabeth. Thank you.
