Remember the Past ~ Imagine the Future|
Volunteer: by definition means "a person who performs a service willingly and without pay." That is what its all about here on Find A Grave; volunteers giving freely of their time and resources. Yes, some have more time than others; more time to add more names, find more info and do more research, but that does not diminish the importance of the contributor who only has time to add just basic names. Sometimes its the smallest clue that brings the biggest results.
PLEASE try to remember because we are dedicated "Gravers" we have stomped through mud puddles, walked for miles, swatted mosquitoes, got stung by fire ants, stood out in 105 degree summer sun and/or froze our rear off on a cold & frosty winter morning - all to get that perfect photo (at our time & expense) others have requested from some remote cemetery out in the "boonies". So please, instead of complaining to us that we misspelled your loved ones name on the memorial pg we made for them (we are human, we all make mistakes, and we are more than happy to correct our typos), please consider how wonderful it would be for us to hear an occasional "thank you for your efforts."
Me, I volunteer in any area where I have the resource material to do so. My primary interest is in Angelina, Llano, Mason, Milam & Williamson counties but I'll research any that I can.
NOTICE: I prefer not to link to "UNKNOWN" BURIALS. Let's discuss it before linking, please.
* NOTE: Per the Find A Grave guidelines, I do not post photos which I did not take, or have personal ownership of, or permission to use - that means newspaper obit photos (I've only posted a few obit photos in the past but have ceased doing so completely). IF I post an obit photo in the future it means I knew the person or family.(updated Oct 2012)
About Find A Grave: if you are new to Find A Grave (1) PLEASE read the FAQ section BEFORE you start asking for transfers or sending suggestions, corrections, additions, comments, etc. And when you do send your comments/requests (2) PLEASE use the "edit" tab found on each memorial pg to send your msg. Use of the edit tab takes us straight to the name in question and cuts down on mistakes. And (3) Unless I know you and know your work, PLEASE state the source (or reason) for the change/addition in the info (death certificate, obit, census, family Bible, personal knowledge, etc) I know I sometimes forget to add these to my SAC's, so if you need to know where I got my info, just ask me (for me, most will be from TXDC's or the census)
ABOUT MY PERSONAL FAMILY PHOTOS: you DO NOT have permission to take/use any of my personal family photos, period! (unless I personally tell you its ok) If you have interest in any of my personal family lines, contact me, tell me who you are and what your interest in my family names is.
ABOUT THE TOMBSTONE PHOTOS I ADD: if they are your family and you wish to add them to your family trees, yes you may do so, BUT remember to give credit where credit is due and note that you found it on Find A Grave "courtesy of Deb in Angelina Co". On the other hand, you DO NOT have permission to take & re-post my photos from other websites, or those here on Find A Grave, under your name as if you were the photographer. Whether good, bad, old, or new, I recognize my own photos. It's not about "owning", it's about giving another person the credit for the effort they went to, to gather & post data for the benefit of those who are searching for family. Thank you!
Family names of personal interest to me are too many to list, but my main line of research interests are in surnames: Alvis, Baugh, Collins, Coursey, Leslie, Hammond, Mankins, Moore, Mott, Murphy, Roberts, Secrest, Sharp, and numerous names associated with those families. The Honey Creek Cemetery (aka Coursey Cemetery by the old timers) in Llano Co is the resting place for many of my direct family lines. Others are in Bell and Williamson counties.
Other surnames of interest via marital lines are: Camp, Broomfield, Gallion, Kendrick, Keith, Pitts, Martin, Sunday, Tull/Tullos and those associated with them. If you have family history from any of these similar family lines feel free to contact me.

|CemeteryStrolling||RE: Wesley Jay Teutsch|
There was a last minute change of plans; his wife's family is buried in Mt. Hope. Would you add that he was a member of the 1977 graduating class of Lufkin High School to his bio? Thanks

Hi Deb, I noticed when I clicked on my Uncle Robert Andrew Tom, Jr. 'S listing there was a copy of his death certificate from Jamacia. Just curious as to how you got this and are we related?

Ok I'll see what I can do. Thanks.

|Lonnie Moore||RE: Isaacs Cemetery - Closing in on it|
I have located the former Coffield Ranch where the Isaacs Cemetery is supposed to be located and determined the current owner. Turns out, one of my distant cousins knows the owner and I hope to be in contact with him next week to seek permission and hopefully information. I have located the property on Google-Earth, but finding a small unfenced graveyard from a satellite photo is not going to happen, I am afraid. If I am successful in getting to the cemetery, I will let you know. In the meantime, if you have any questions about who or where, contact me with my email address in my profile.

Could you please combine the information I put on my memorial with yours? Then I will delete. If I send it in editing then it will only take one thing at a time. Sorry, I did not realize you had created one until I looked at recent memorials.

|Lonnie Moore||RE: Isaacs Cemetery|
Thanks for all that background information on the Isaacs Cemetery. I actually have that set of books coming to me, and I appreciate the heads up about the inaccuracies. I seem to be collecting reference books, most of which I have scanned into searchable pdfs, which I find easier to use.
If I learn anything new and useful about Isaacs Cemetery, I will share, but I think you are way ahead of me on the research curve.
|Wayne Smith||RE: W.A. Smith, Black Jack # 7379956|
Thank you, you're a pleasure to work with!
|Bryan Healy||RE: naming of Monastery Nuns|
Yes, I totally agree about the search ability factor! Thanks for working to try and get to the bottom of this!
