Bridges Cemetery Edgecombe Co. NC
Hi Jim:
I am not familiar to the Bridges Cemetery in Edgecombe County NC as you may know there are cemeteries all over the place here-literally in every back yard.
Please talk with Janice at 252-977-4694 as she has lots of information on Edgecombe County and mention to her that I will try to take some photos of the graves.
Thanks for your service to our country.
PS I love to travel also.

There's is only one REAL GENEALOICAL LIBRARY in the Kansas City area even thro several samller libraries has geneological matertial.

This library is ranked as one of the top ten geneological libraries in the the country and is climbing up the list as the years go by.

Tell your friend the main geneological library on Lee's Summit Road in Independence. They will has the most material on Edgecombe County and remind her that some of the old books may be on microfilm. When an book wears out, the library usually microfilm it instead of rebinding.

Hope you find what you are looking for.

Col. Jim,

Try on line the Edgecombe Historical Society, sometimes these Historical Societies will have copies of older books available.

The only copies I know of are the ones in libaries in the Kansas City arera.

Have any connection to the famous Jim Bridger. I know where his grave is. Have seen it many times.

I want to thank you for your service in protecting America.

re>Luling, TX, cemetery
I wanted to let you know that I drove out to the cemetery, and after walking around for 2 hours found not one of the grave sites. I went to the Luling Chamber of Commerce, and they gave me the name of the cemetery association chairman, Mr. Mike Hendricks (he is also Mayor of Luling). I called him (cell - 512.738.1097). He told me that there were 7,000 graves in the cemetery, and they've only made a little headway on cataloging graves. I went to the city library, and they gave me the name of someone who might be able to help - Randy Engelke (830.875.5216). I have not contacted Mr. Endgelke.
Luling is about 20 miles east of me. If you want to try to see if you can get them to give you a location of the grave, I will be glad to go and take a photo of it! - Janet

Ben Tisinger photo request
I am happy to fill your request at Sparkman Hillcrest, but I will need a burial location in order to do so. They don't give findagrave volunteers burial locations but you could get one if you called on the phone at: 214 363 5401.
Let me know the location and I will go out there next week and fill it for you.

Please call Resthaven Cemetery in Lubbock, TX at 806-791-6200 and ask for the plot location of your photo request. Then have that info posted onto the person's memorial page where it says "Plot." This cemetery is HUGE!
