Bio and Links
Bio Photo Tony and Patricia Strickland (Logan) were married in 1961.

Upon retirement from the Army Tony pursued a career in Industrial Security management.

Fully retired we enjoy many things we did not have time for during the working days, like golfing, stained glassworks, as well other projects such as Find-a-Grave, volunteer at our church, as well enjoying grand parenting and great-grand parenting.

Our largest single project, the listing and photographing ALL laid to rest in our church cemetery, Saint Marys, Sherman Texas, is completed, and ongoing as more individuals are laid to rest. We are now focusing our attention to Cedarlawn Memorial Park here in Sherman.

Properly attributed, any photo that we have posted may be used in your family records. This includes Ancestry and published family history books.

If we added a memorial from someone's immediate family, we will gladly transfer ownership if requested, and will share larger photos if we still have them.

Hi, I believe my Grandfather was buried in the poor farm in Sherman Texas. His name was Millard Fillmore Hopper and he died March 10, 1932. 8 years ago I went to Sherman to try and find any info on him but nobody seemed to know anything. I don't have it in front of me but I'm pretty sure his death certificate says he was buried at the poor farm. I wish there was some way I could find out for sure. Thanks for what you are doing recording all those.

Tony and Patricia,

I want to thank you for taking the time to go to the cemetery, locate the tombstones, photograph them, and add them to the Find A Grave memorials. I really do appreciate it.

Thank you so much for the photos you took for me at Cedarlawn Memorial Park of the Keeth Family! Your kindness is greatly appreciated! I am working on my genealogy today and finding more there, so you will probably see some requests pop up again today! Thanks so much for what you do to help others!

Manuel Odine Tucker was first married to Luticia Ann 'Lou' Manning they married on 7 Jan 1885 and all kids prior to John Wesley are hers. Joseph Arthur's death certificate is incorrect listing Thames as his mother Manuel and Alice Irene Thames married on 2 Jan 1896 Hamilton, Texas - Manuel and Lou had 6 known children

Stephen Foster
Thanks so much for the photo of Stephen. I have a picture of him and a obituary to add to the memorial. The picture of the stone is great. He died in a car wreck just days before he was to graduate from high school
