Bio Photo Revised/Updated June 13, 2016:

Permission is given to use my pictures for any non-commercial purpose. Credit for the picture is appreciated.


Late in 2014, I completed uploading pix of the markers and monuments that I could find at the Shannon Rose Hill Memorial Park.

I would like to thank Beckie Saar Leone (Contributor #47783924) for her help and encouragement during this project.

I would also like to thank the employees of Shannon Rose Hill Memorial Park - Office and Maintenance - for their co-operation and many kindnesses (past, present and future). They have been very helpful in locating the unmarked graves still to be found. Going the extra mile seems to be SOP at that cemetery.


Currently, I am re-photographing or re-editing many of my early pix as they are not satisfactory to me (I am an amateur and working at improving my product). Meanwhile, if the reader sees one of my pictures that could be improved upon, please let me know and I will try to fix it.


It is believed that all of the headstones have been photographed. However, there are still about 950 Memorials without a marker picture.

I have also begun to track down as many of the still un-photographed Memorials as I can. They might have been missed for many reasons:

- original photo removed by a prior photographer;
- marker completely covered by dirt, debris and/or vegetation (found 55 so far);
- duplicate Memorial, often with a variant spelling of the name (I have identified as many duplicate Memorials as I could, but it is likely that there are more);
- still living;
- overlooked;
- recently deceased and waiting for a marker;
- grave NEVER marked (this seems to be the most common);
- marker no longer legible;
- never buried here (there are over a couple of dozen "Rose Hills" in Texas!).
- disinterred and reburied elsewhere.

If the reader would like a picture for a Memorial not yet photographed, please obtain the garden name, lot and space numbers from the cemetery office at 817-451-3333. Once that is done, please contact me & I will take care of it.


There were many stones that had no corresponding Memorial. In that instance, I have created one and transferred those Rose Hill Memorials to Becky Saar Leone. She is already caring for many Memorials in Rose Hill and has done a wonderful job in matching deceased family members.

While I have created Memorials, as necessary, it is understood that some might be duplicates. If the reader sees a duplicate, notes an error, or can add information on these new Memorials, please let Beckie know & that will be addressed.



Many times, the duplicate file contains more information than the original. While there is no specific "merge button" that I can find, I have had success with merging Memorials by sending an e-message to:

requesting a merger and giving them all relevant information. It takes no more than 2 weeks to get results.

Thank you for taking a picture of where William Arlie Gooch was buried. His nephew was supposed to have also put a stone there. But I guess not. You are very kind to do this!

RE: Floyd Bye
I appreciate you looking for him and enjoyed the photo of his grave site. I can still include it in my family history book.

I want to thank you for your efforts in such a large cemetery. What you are doing is very worthwhile and means so much to family and friends. I, thanks to a FindAGrave volunteer, was able to see a photo my father's grave marker. My father and I lived in different states and his grave marker was placed after I and my siblings had returned home from his service. So that photo was very precious to us.

The efforts of all the FAGrave volunteers means so much to family members. So again, thank you!

Thank you so much for your photograph of Floyd's grave site. It's a little disappointing he had no gravestone, but just seeing the area is nice. Again, thank you for your time and effort.

Thank you so much for visiting this cemetery. I did not know there was no marker when I requested the photo. I appreciate your help very much.
