|I am past president and historian of the National Association of Swor Families. I am trying to help save the Garvin Memorial Cemetery in Dallas, Dallas, TX as it has been rezoned as commercial property with multi-families owning it one of which is buried there Mr. Mathis! As in most old cemeteries the black families were buried outside the now fenced in area. The land around the cemetery is for sale! I don't know for sure who is behind the selling of the land and are trying to move the graves! This is outrageous as the land was donated by Mr. Garvin to be a cemetery for all time and he is buried there with other members of his family. The name of the Garvin Cemetery was called Smith Hall Cemetery at first. Please help us protect our ancestors and their resting place!|

My husband's family are descendants
of the Venables. Our family records
go back to James Duncan Venable and
Catherine. I don't have much more
than what is on their memorial pages,
but the Norwood Family Tree on
Ancestry. com has William and Sarah
(Pinson) Venable as James' parents.
Maybe I have jumped the gun to assume
this to be true, but if incorrect I
certainly need to change information.
More research is in order!
Hope to hear from you.

I am working on Johnson Chapel Cemetery and just finished taking all photos of markers.
There is listed William Henry Patterson in Johnson Chapel, but there is no stone.
I see you have a memorial at Patterson Cem 47493347 also. Also noticed you took some photos there.
Did you find a marker for William Henry there? And should the Johnson Chapel one be removed? The McEvoy records states Johnson Chapel and his death record states Jackson Cem.
Any info would be appreciated.
Maybe I need to go to Patterson Cem next to take more photos. It is on my side of town. Is it easy to get to?

I had added the links you requested. Have you searched for Rebecca (Wood) Simmons in Bristol Co., Mass? RI borders fluctuated early on and she might have been buried in an area that is now part of MA. Seekonk, Swansea and Rehoboth might be a possibility.
Nope not related. My mother was an Eldridge. Good luck in your search.

I dont have a clue if she was married to a Hendricks or not. I transcribed this info from the Callowy Co. Cem Book.

Hi Laura: I'm not familiar with Alta Pearce. I have a Robert Summers in my genealogical files. He was from Webster County, Missouri, and I do not know if he is living or not.

I cannot do your request to link Rhoda # 80853997 to her parents as I am not the owner of her memorial only the owner of Rhoda's memorial can do this. You will have to contact him/her for that. I can build a link to her memorial in her parents memorials if you wish but it will not show her parents in Rhoda's memorial.
Best of luck.

Thank You for the photo.

Laura, I have worked on committees to save old family cemeteries.... the ONLY way to get this cemetery preserved is to get a historical marker designation from the State of Texas. Call your local historical society and they will help you. Mansfield Historical Society in Mansfield, Tarrant, Texas has knowledge of this procedure. It is worth saving. Without it, new land owners can bulldoze the land without penalty. Good luck!
