Bio and Links
Bio Photo I helped co-write state laws to protect our cemeteries here in Texas.
I've been Honored by the Texas State Senate, Texas State House of Representatives, The Dallas County Historical Commission for my work in preserving and protecting our cemeteries. I served on The State Senate Advisory Committee as well as being an Advisor to a number of cities in my area pertaining to cemeteries within their city limits. I have helped in clean ups and restoring a number of cemeteries. I believe very strongly in cemetery preservation. Cemeteries in most cases are the only history of those that came before us. Like rare books in a library once it's lost it's lost forever.
I served six years on the Duncanville City Council, two years as mayor pro-tem.
I've been working on family genealogy since 1976. I'm the wife of Wallace Richards.

James Preston Richardson Jr & Sr
Judy, to make a long story short, and much too detailed to share here, there are now separate memorials for James Preston Richardson Jr. and Sr. Would you mind to move the photo of Jr.'s military stone from his father's memorial and place it on his?

The memorials are:

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=126598111 - James Preston Richardson, Jr.

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=5866144 - James Preston Richardson, Sr.

If this message isn't clear, email me directly and I'll try to explain it all. Thanks so much! Janie

Memorial Connection
Hi Judy, would it be possible for you to connect Clifford Long (5937654) to his parents William D. Long (118188392) and Mary Samuella McKee Long (110248688)? He was my uncle by marriage and when I checked his death certificate, they were listed as his mother and father. Thanks for your help.
