Bio and Links
Bio Photo We can all do more helping each other than we can working alone.

Working my way through entries I manage in Collin, Wise County and Clay County, Texas. I gained management of a large group of them just recently so is a work in progress.

Earthman Resthaven Cemetery in Houston, Harris County, Texas is a "project" of sorts for me, I have added over 15,000 entries and pictures to this cemetery so far.

If additional information is offered, happy to update entries I manage. I like to connect entries to their spouse and parent's entries, makes it much easier to move around for everyone and adds value to the entry.

Primary lines: Hollis, Patterson, Maxwell, Davenport, Combest, Riggins, Hammonds, Peck, Dick. But am collecting data on all associated surnames.
I love pictures, it brings a little life to these "dead" names on paper we work on every day. smile....Concerning the pictures I post to the Findagrave website, we have to make them smaller to fit on the webpage which means you can't zoom in on the picture to pick up details. If this is case on one you need, write me, I'll try to find the original and send it to you.

I choose to follow Findagrave guidelines for transfer, which can be found on the Findagrave FAQ page, but in summary.

I transfer your ancestors or your descendants or your siblings unless they are my ancestors as well, but remember your grandfather's sister's nephew is not your ancestor....I accept they are part of your family, but let's keep it your ancestors, your siblings or your descendants.

For updates or connections, please the "Suggest a correction" feature on an entry for update or transfer, this gives me a shortcut to the entry as well as sending me the correction you wish made. Typically, I will get the update or connection done the same or next day unless I am out of town.

Please don't make duplicates of existing entries, it is confusing to us all, having said that if I have made a duplicate it was an accident, please advise me so I can get it fixed either by deletion or having findagrave merge the 2 entries to preserve flowers or connections.

Some findagravers insist on having multiple surnames in the surname field because of several marriages, please use the surname they died with as it makes a search for them nigh on to impossible otherwise.

Warden Cemetery
I am so confused are there 2 Warden Cemeteries one in Collin Co. and one in Grayson Co.. I have a ggg-grandmother that is said to be buried at Warden Cemetery in Grayson Memorial# 5702011
Elizabeth Jane Spears Watson. This same cemetery has another gg-grandparents Mahlon Walker buried there also. But I know for a fact that Mahlon is buried at the Wardon Cemetery listed in Collin Co. near Elmont, Gunter and Van Alstyne, Memorial# 6423020.
Is this a duplication of the same cemetery? How can this be fixed if it is duplicated? Or there are 2 cemeteries with the same name in both counties with some people being listed in both. those will need to be corrected.
Thanks

Sarah's father was James Wesley Crook (not John). Her mother was Nancy J. Parker Crook.
My grandfather, William Riley Crook was a half brother to Sarah E. Crook Vandagriff.

Dear Richard,

For some reason, my g grandfather,John Harrison Richards, is listed as John Hanson Richards. Could you please change the middle name from Hanson to Harrison? The tombstone lists only J.H.

Thank you so much.

Pulaski County KY Jones Surname
Pulaski County KY Jones Surname

Hi!

I am trying to find my oldest-known grandfather’s grave. I’ll call him “Father Jones”. It is reported that he died in Pulaski County, Kentucky. I cannot find a grave or any records on him. If you have any information on him or know of someone I can contact, please let me know!!

Father Jones had four sons; Alexander, James, Robert, William and Thomas. Thomas was the only one born in Pulaski County around 1800. Father Jones died between Thomas’ birth and the War of 1812. It is stated that Father Jones died prior to his son Robert joining the War of 1812.

Any help that anyone can provide would be GREATLY appreciated!!
