Bio Photo 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. 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.
* 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.

Update made
Deb, Thank you for letting me know that Dolores Cudiamat's burial location has been changed to Simpson. I got the message from family this morning, but had not yet gotten here to make the change.

Have a great day.

RE: Lucille Garrett edit request

Thank you for inquiring. Hopefully, the explanation below will assist your question.

As you may be aware it was and still is not that uncommon for family members to marry the same surname being that there are so many people in the San Augustine, Texas area with the same last names.

The 1920 census shows Betty as a widow. However, she is using her maiden name as Bell so I am not sure who her first husband was.

In the 1930 census Lucille's mother, Betty, is recorded with her last name as Garrett and her children carrying the Garrett name too. Lucille's mother, Betty, married a Johnnie Garrett on 8 Feb 1930 in San Augustine, Book 7, Page 271.

During this era, often and very often the women changed their children's last name to whichever husband they are living with at the time.

Name Age
Bettie Garrett 39
Luceil Garrett 18
Tee Garrett 16
Maurice Garrett 10

I am not able to confirm if the Garret man that Betty married and the Garrett man that Lucille married are related or not.

Thank you,

Hi Deb! I was noticing that you cleaned some of the head stones before you took pictures. I took pictures only because I was visiting my dad in Alto and was looking around, I didn't bring anything to clean them with. I was wondering what you used to clean them. I need to get some too! Thanks!

Deb, thank you again for your email, if you ever decided to downsize some, I would really appreciate if you would transfer the 5 BOLT memorials that you maintain to me.

Thanks again,

RE: Mary Metzger Covalt
Deb, my paternal grandmother is buried at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery (not Helotes.) I know this for a fact as I indeed attended the ceremony provided at the cemetery at the time of her passing in 1993. As I am currently employed at Fort Sam Houston, on my lunch break today I drove to the cemetery and took the attached photo. She is buried in Section 19 Number 269. I am curious though as to why she is buried separately from James Covalt (second husband) as husband and wife are usually buried in the same plot (vertically.)

thanks a bunch for your efforts.

Thank You
Thank you for your work on Luke Allen Moore and his descendants. Your hard work made my tasks so
much easier.

Mark L Moore is my great-great grandfather.
He and Luke Allen were half brothers.

Again, thank you.

They are cousins, great uncles and aunts.

I have my complete BOLT tree since the first one stepped foot in Jamestown Va in 1736, he was Robert Bolt, born in Ireland in 1710, lived for years in VA, moved to Laurens, SC, took a second wife and had a whole second family.

now we have BOLT's born in over 40 states and 3 countries, my 2 oldest were born in Scotland while I was stationed there.

I enjoyed the Navy, in fact Ive wore a uniform every since the 4th grade when I joined the boy scouts.

Thank you for the nice reply.
Rick B.
