Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy research for well over 20 years. My roots are deep within Runnels County, Texas. I enjoy helping others in the hope that someday I can repay those who have helped me. I am no longer able to work outside my home due to health issues so I try to make the best of my time by quilting, gardening and genealogy. If you find a mistake I have made in the listings, please let me know by using the "EDIT" tab so I can correct them. Please remember, we are all human!! Mistakes can be made, even on death certificates. If there is a relative that you would like transfered to you, please let me know an I will be glad to do that. A special thanks to Ralph Terry and friends for all their hard work transcribing the Trickham Cemetery, Coleman, Tx. I have added to these records as not all were listed. Without this, it would have taken much longer to get the information out. Slowly but surely, I am photographing and listing the graves in Evergreen in Ballinger, Paint Rock, Lakeview, Fairview and North View in Winters.
Old Runnels,Brookshire (Mt Victory), Maverick and Garden of Memories, Norton, Rowena Protestant, Rowena Evergreen, Rowena St Joseph's, Wingate, Wilmeth (Runnels Co), Trickham,Rough Creek and Valera (Coleman County) are finished.

Please use the photos I take as you see fit. That is why I do this, so others can benefit from it.

Mary Epting

There's a duplicate of Mary Epting: 28585442 and 31425159. I believe the later is the correct one, as she is in Garden of Memories (according to the obit).

Thank you for all the countless hours you've worked on Find A Grave!

Georgia Adams
I am trying to find my great grand-father named John Adams who lived in Winters, TX at around 1911. He supposedly owned or ran a tailor shop in Winters. When I look at the 1930 census for Winters I find Georgia and it has a son named Archie F. who is 37 at that time. It shows that he was married but must live with Georgia and is a tailor and has a tailor shop. Anything you can tell me would be a great help.
Thank You,
Joan Bostwick

Aaron Franklin Acock transfer
Hi, Sandra

Thanks SO much for the transfer. I am aware of the mistake on the headstone as I have a copy of the death certificate. Would you mind removing it from the memorial?

Thank you for the transfer of Mildred Harris. I certainly appreciate you doing that for us. I have a picture of Mildred to add when I get it scanned. The only picture that was ever made of her.
