Bio and Links
Bio Photo My family doesn't understand my obsession for recording headstones, uncover Markers and link lost family members. I have dug my way in the bushes and scraped many headstone for others. I love doing research on my family tree. Everyone should have their name etched in history. I hope to help provide this information. Currently working on my Daughters of the Republic of Texas (DRT) and plan on working on (DAR) Daughters of the American Revolution.
research :Abernathy, Allred, Blanton,Buchanan, Clepper, Garner, Gilbert, Herrington, Lackey, Mason, Neeley, Pace, Pierot, Powell, Sledge, Smith

I have chosen Cook-Walden Capital Parks Cemetery to be my goal to photograph the entire cemetery.

Any and all pictures can be used without any further contact, I took them for your use. Thank you for allowing me to help and enjoy your search as much as I do.

I have submitted the city and county of death for Mr. Emory as Hitchcock, Texas. My wife and I knew Mr. Emory's daughter very well, and we had visited with him several times in the years before his death.

Hi Brenda, you're right, Find A Grave doesn't have Billy listed. If you are interested, Selma Cemetery District has a wonderful, searchable, webpage at and Billy is listed there.

RE: Edna Mae Witt Hylton Ford
You are welcome Brenda. Billy is buried right next to Edna. I saw his headstone but since you didn't request it? Next time I go to Selma I'll take a picture for you.

Morning Brenda,
Sorry I was unable to find more of your family and friends but in reality, that cemetery is short on markers and printed info.
When I went out there several weeks ago the foto percentage was 39%, now is up to 50%.
Most of the hundreds of fotos that I have taken ended up being "new entries" rather than found markers for current entries.
I am on dial-up so the process is tedious & time consuming, I still have 100+ to process but I should be done this weekend. Since I don't know the surnames that U are searching for, check back next week, maybe there will be new additions that will benefit your research, and I haven't photographed the ones across the creek on the far right end.
"Cemetery stomping", as I call it, is a never ending adventure, and I love it.
Nice to have crossed your path, I hope U find all that U are searching for, Later, James Coston
