You may call Dallas Public Library to search for a small fee, or you can look into the following:

Purchase a subscription or see if your local library has a subscription to Readex's America's Historical Newspapers Select collection

You might find any major university has a subscription to this - walk in, and use their computers.

RE: Jos E. Lewis and Eloise
Thank you Ma'am. I have sent the edit to Carol Moore for Joseph Lewis and Eloise, and learned something new on the same day!
A slip of the finger gets you a long way in the wrong direction!
I am usually technically astute, this time with your kind help.

RE: Re - Restland Memorial Park @ Dallas
i have a map that the cemetery office gave me about a year ago. it lists the entire cemetery, on both sides of the street, mapping out each section. finding any grave in this cemetery without a map would be an impossible task, as you know. it is enormous. i often joke Restland must have a zip code all their own.
anyhow, if you have anything other than the cemetery map that you think might be helpful, i would certainly be willing to check it out.
thanks for the offer!

Well since Esla's parents mar in Madison Co and seems to have stayed there I would guess it is safe to assume the children were all born there. I think her death cert just says Indiana. I think I may have put in a correction not sure.

RE: Re - Hitoshi Christopher Nikaidoh, Restland @ Dallas
Oh, I don't know the creator of the other memorial, I only noticed that one memorial said he was cremated with ashes given to family/friend...with no cemetery given yet another posts a photo of a cemetery plot (which, I guess, the ashes could have been placed in the cemetery plot.) I was just wondering if it was the same person because I thought it odd that both memorials have the same DOD. I have no idea how Find A Grave determines if memorials should be merged...or how they determine which one should survive. It just made me curious if it was the same person and I thought I'd ask. Thanks for getting back to me!

Mem. 101586109 has the wrong picture. Perhaps you have the right one for Maud?

Joe B. Abernathy's mauseleum gravemarker
Hello, I would like to post another photo of Joe B. Abernathy (himself), but there are 3 photos of his gravemarker, including the one you took, and a photo of the cemetery sign. Someone posted a clearer shot of his gravemarker couple of years after yours. I can't upload his photo since i would have to pay $5 to do so since the limit has been met. Could i please ask you to take down your photo of the gravemarker so i can upload another photo of him? I would really appreciate it! Thanks! :)

PS That's Joe Beeler Abernathy to be precise. Here's the link to his findagrave memorial:
