I am more than happy to make corrections to any of the memorials I have entered; however, I would really appreciate your giving me a way to communicate with you if you have messages blocked and no email address on your profile. I try to let you know when I have completed the correction or if I have a question.
I try my best to do a thorough check before entering any memorials. I will never intentionally create a duplicate, although sometimes it just happens with the delay in the Find-a-Grave system at times. Even if my memorial was entered first, I will usually delete if the other memorial is complete. My interest is not in numbers but in the precious souls who walked among us on this earth. However, I would appreciate your using "the Golden Rule" when asking me to delete a memorial. Most people already do and don't have to be reminded. Just want you to know that I will never intentionally be rude to anyone. God bless!

I have lived in Sweetwater, Texas all but four years of my life.
A geneology nut, I love to help people find their family information through this volunteer work.
I am the Find-A-Grave coordinator for the Nolan County Cemeteries. The Sweetwater Cemetery is my favorite (my daughter, father & grandparents are buried there). Outlying Nolan County cemetery photos can be made as time and travel permits.
I have strong family ties to the following cemeteries:
* Sweetwater (Nolan County, TX)
* Old Bethel (Anderson County, TX)
* Frankston City (Anderson County, TX)
* Roby (Fisher County, TX)
* Rose Hill (Taylor County, TX)
I'll be happy to make corrections on any of my entries if needed, or I will gladly transfer memorials to family members (at my discretion when it involves my kinfolks).
My families are (to name a few):
Cardwell * Hammond * Turner * Elam * Fry * Douglass
Hughes * Thomas * Beard * Willingham * Folmar
Free * Wyly * Bates * Stewart * Powell
Always interested in hearing from anyone with any connections to my families.

THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
By Thelma Greene Reagan
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.
Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.
Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.
Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.
Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.
Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.
Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

Janie, My name is Lester Van Huss (#47859148) and I want to thank you for your work as a volunteer. I Have been working on my genealogy now for about 5 years and just recently decided to become a volunteer for findagrave after being a member for a little over 2 years. I have been diligently working, creating and trying to collect our family on findagrave. You created my Uncle Roberts memorial who was my Aunts Husband. I just completed his first born - Sydney A White who was born and died at birth in San Angelo, Texas. I have also linked them together through Sydney's memorial. If you would not mind could I request a transfer of Uncle Roberts memorial to me. I know these take time and your effort is greatly appreciated. I promise to take good care of his memorial. Thank you, Lester Van Huss son of Dorothy Petty Van Huss
