If you have corrections or additions, I am happy to put them in but please, use the edit, correction suggestion to do corrections or transfer requests. I am also happy to transfer management to a responsible relative.|
I became interested in genealogy in 1993 after my grandmother passed away. I have collected over 40,000 names 4500 obituaries, and 1500 death certificates for descendants of 1880 Lawrence County, Ohio.
In 2010 I found findagrave and found it to be a excellent site for remembering our ancestors.
I have done considerable work on City Cemetery, Brownsville, Texas, (adding 20,000+ names, in addition to several 1000 more by other volunteers - 25,000+ total), I also have done several smaller cemeteries in Brownsville and Lawrence Co, Ohio.
I am also working to index Brownsville Death Certificates from 1950 to 1976 (images available on familysearch.org up to 1976) and the Brownsville Herald Newspaper obits from 1977 to 2013. Currently have scanned images of 1977 to 2013, with index complete from 1977 to 2001. If you need a Brownsville obit in this time frame, send me a note with the name and death date.
After the index in complete, I expect to find several 1000 more names that have no headstone to add.
Just found a great webpage, adblock.com. It is shareware, you don't have to pay but it is worth $15-30 to block almost every ad. Stops the ads on findagrave, well worth something to stop them, but also stops adchoices garbage.
Do not post photo requests for City Cemetery. All readable headstones have been posted.
Photo requests for Buena Vista and Rose Lawn in Brownsville requires contacting the cemetery by a family member to obtain plot location information. They will not give the info to a non family member, who knows why, its just "policy".

I understand. Thank you.
|Blind Spotlight||RE: Addition|
Thank you for your quick response and suggestions. I would be happy to take over Hartwell and Belle's memorials and provide more information. Otherwise Dr. Stilwell's memorial number is 168910908. I'm still looking for his actual burial place in South Carolina. He was a very interesting graduate of the Texas Blind School where I work.
Can I add Dr. Robert S. Stilwell to his parents Hartwell and Belle Stilwell?

What do you make of these two broken stones reassembled together? They died 110 years apart?
Might you have another photo of gravestones nearby to try to make sense of this?
