Bio and Links
Bio Photo US NAVY 1966-1968 Silent Service
Radio operator on (2) submarines & a supply ship.
Duty stations in order of service:
Main ID card VA & proud Navy Veteran !!
I specalize in babies (because they never got a chance) and veterans (because they gave us the chances that we have).
I'm hampered by 14K dial-up, so putting in fotos takes a while, be patient.
As a result of sub-service speed, I do most of my postings between 0400-0700 Texas time when internet usage is at a minimum.
Retired from GTE dba Verizon in Plano, Tx in 2007 after 27 years.
The dog in the foto is Precious, she is my constant traveling companion, mess with me and she goes into action, for real. !!!

Later, James Coston

Photo request
Dear Mr. Coston, recently I requested a photo of the gravestone for Arthur N. S. and Doris Fay (Ivy) Patrick at the Richland Cemetery in Navarro County, TX. I was informed this morning that you had fulfilled my request, and you'll never know how much this touched my soul. Having never grown up with anybody in my family, I'm just finding them through my genealogy studies. There's a long story associated with the people in this photo you took, but I won't bore you with the details. Suffice to say though, what you've given me and my newly-found extended family is priceless. I'm 100% disabled and would never have been able to travel over 2K miles to take this photo. Thank you and all the other volunteers who go out of your way to fulfill requests such as mine, very, very much!
Very respectfully, Rex J. Harrison

Silvanus F Herod Jr Headstone Picture
Sad that a veteran doesn't have a headstone when provided free from US Govt. Wouldn't have known this without the pic you took of relative. Memorial #119098148

W. H. Pigford & daughter Emma S. Pigford
Thank you for photographing & posting the Pigford graves on Findagrave. I'm wondering if the space between these graves could possibly be Emma's mother's grave -- Emma Dunlap Pigford, wife of W.H. Pigford. From 1862 on, Emma lived with various family members, but cannot find her after 1920.
Thank you for all you do for us. We appreciate you!

Hi James...
Thank you so very much for taking the time to visit the Oxford Presbyterian Church Cemetery. The pictures you took will go a long way to complete the family tree history book I am researching for my family.
Thanks again!
