Files Valley Cemetery
This relates to the status of the cemetery in Files Valley, TX. In the 1970s, a board was established to oversee maintenance of the cemetery. All of the board members are now deceased. In order to insure some level of maintenance going forward, a new board should be established. A meeting seems necessary to reestablish the board and the first group to make contact with, before going to the general population of the community, in my opinion, should be those FindAGrave Contributors who have shown an interest and demonstrated some effort to preserve the memory of those interred there. If you have experience in managing small cemeteries and/or the interest to participate in this process, please contact me via email at

Regards and thanks for all your work for FindAGrave.

Youngblood Cemetery
I'd check the Walthall County Cemetery book for directions. I can't find my copy, but I'm sure it's in there.

J oseph McMaken family
Thanks for the heads up on the McMaken family. But mine was not the duplicate. You might try contacting the other contributor since they entered theirs at a later date. I no longer contact people that make duplicates because they have a tendency to get nasty. Duplicates happen, people know the same person by two different names, it happens. But I just leave them alone. Thanks again.

RE: T. Youngblood
There were no other graves nearby; the marked graves are spread out. The cemetery is extremely old. My husband has three family members buried there, and we could find markers for none of them. I plan on contacting the cemetery board to see if there are any written records. If I find anything, I will be sure to let you know.

Sorry.
