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. I volunteer for Find A Grave in numerous counties. I volunteered previously for the Texas Tombstone Transcription Project. I also volunteer in the TXGenWeb Project. I do volunteer look-ups from resource material that I own on assorted Texas counties, however the primary counties are: Angelina, Llano, Mason, Milam & Williamson counties. My main county of (personal) interest is my birth county of Llano. If anyone has questions pertaining to Angelina Co cemeteries, or the info you've found listed about them here on Find A Grave, you may contact me. There may be cemeteries listed from time to time as being here in Angelina Co that actually are not here. Others may have been duplicated under "aka" names. And others not yet posted.
NOTICE: I HAVE CEASED LINKING TO "UNKNOWN" BURIALS, please do NOT ask me to link to them. You cannot "find a grave" if you don't know where its at.
* 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, email 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.

I have an obit for him, copied from the newspaper archives in Athens; how is the best way to get this to you so you can copy & paste? My e-ad is on my contributor page.
|Vicky Dennis||RE: Cowdrey marriage|
I added the marriage license, It sure is a nice document! I hope it helps to find more family.
|Rajordan||RE: A.D. Chancey # 110505600|
It looks like someone else sent me a "correction" to link to Rosanna Jane Dunn as his mother. I will try to watch this one.
I have George W. Chancey and D. Elizabeth Pierce has his parents and Nancy Cordelia Allbritton as his wife. Sound good?

Thanks, Deb, I've found her on Ancestry.com in one PRIVATE family tree, and I've emailed that person but have not yet heard back. If I do find anything on her, I will let you know...Diana
|Diana Cannon||Minerva Tazewell Harris|
Thanks, Deb, for your quick reply. I was just in that Grand Bluff Cemetery yesterday; there are very few marked graves and only this one Harris. A gentleman who was also visiting there, told me that the white iron crosses which are on the outer perimeter of the cemetery marks graves of slaves; there are a large number of these...Diana
Re: Minerva Tazewell memorial you maintain. Minerva is buried in Grand Bluff Cemetery, Panola County, TX and was the wife of Ben J. Harris according to her gravemarker.
I have Harris kin in and from that area and wonder if you know more about this family. My email is email@example.com. Thanks, Diana

Thank you for your quick response to the edits. This has been a labor of love for our son-in-law who has taken a deep interest in his roots. We appreciate your work on findagrave.com and the help it gives to those of us that live a distance away from those we are researching.

|Kelly Klaes||RE: Clark's Ferry Cemetery|
The house that is directly over the fence from the cemetery appears to be abandoned, half of it has fallen in. When we were there, though, it looked like someone was still using it for something (lord only knows what). We were told that the land owners around it would not hesitate to call the cops if they saw us there, so it is very questionable what everyone is hiding. It makes me extremely sad to see that people care so little about things like this would purposely sabatoge a historical marker.
I would be willing to help in cleaning up the cemetery if it were organized again. I have a few people who would maybe be interested in helping and if not, I would get out there and have at it myself!
