Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been searching for family since my second son was born in 1994.

I am interested in the following families: Akers, Allison, Bublitz, Collins, Cooper, Crowder, French, Harshman, Holstine, Isham, James, Kammer, Mayfield, Nelson, Nichols, Nix, Peyton, Smythe, Strickland, Vernon, Villwock, Zeigler.

I will be happy to take pictures at Greenwood Cemetery, Dallas Tx and those in Duncanville, DeSoto, Ennis, Cedar Hill, Ovilla, Red Oak, Pecan Hill, Waxachaie TX

I would like to thank everyone who uses this site for the wonderful photos and bio's of our loved ones, may they never be forgotten.

Please let me know if you notice any mistakes on posted memorials and I will fix them promptly.

I will be happy to transfer direct family members, please do not request more as it takes considerable amount of time to enter all this information. I WILL NOT transfer entire families because you want a whole family in a certin cemetery. Direct family members would be within four generations such as great-grandparents, grandparents, parents, or siblings. Transfer request must also contain relationship. Please send request for transfer through the correction tab it makes it eaiser to locate the memorial.

C P Brown
I have a question about the memorial for C P Brown #79386453. Is the DOB correct? Did you get the information off of the headstone? I have a significantly different DOB.

Lota R BOND 26969669

I believe Lota R BOND 26969669 is in fact Emily Louisa BOND nee ROSSELLE [note also spelt Rossell]

1850 United States Federal Census Emily L Rossell, Houston Harris County Texas
1860 United States Federal Census Emily L Bond, Ward 3 Harris County Texas
1870 United States Federal Census Louisa Bond, Ward 3 Harris County Texas
1880 United States Federal Census Sote Bond, Houston Harris County Texas
1900 United States Federal Census Lotta Bond, Dallas Ward 6, Dallas, Texas
1910 United States Federal Census Louise Bonds, Dallas Ward 8, Dallas, Texas
1920 United States Federal Census Lada Bond, Dallas Ward 5, Dallas, Texas
1930 United States Federal Census Lota Bond, Dallas, Dallas, Texas, USA

Would it be possible to link Lota up to her parents

William 32878353
Eliza M 32878341

and her and Thomas son Stonewall Bond 15700243

Her sister was Julia A KENDALL, married into my KENDALL family.

Many thanks

Kenneth Martin Penrod Bio
Kenneth Martin Penrod was born in Lubbock and grew up there and in Arlington, where he graduated from Sam Houston High School. A Coast Guard veteran, he began his Dallas police career in 1982 in the city's Southwest Patrol Division, where he worked the streets of north Oak Cliff. Within a few years, he became an assaults detective and then transferred to homicide. He was chasing killers when crime reached historic highs in the city, fueled by the crack cocaine wars. Without the DNA collection methods that are prevalent today, many cases depended on a detective's ability to get a confession. He made that his craft. He would position his chair to face his suspect, with nothing in between them. He would talk for hours, if necessary. In retirement, he and his wife, Dallas police Detective Laura Penrod, refused to let his illness get in the way. They drove their RV on camping trips in Arkansas, to Rangers spring training in Arizona, and to Chicago and St. Louis, where they visited Wrigley Field and Busch Stadium. In addition to his wife of eight years, he is survived by his daughter, Amanda Lopez, 28, of Midlothian; two sons, Dereck Penrod of League City and Brandon Penrod of Cedar Hill; his mother, Margaret Penrod of Arlington; and a sister, Katherine Ferrell of Arlington.

Laurel Land photo request
Hi, the volunteers would be happy to fill your photo request however we will need a burial location to do so.

The number is 214 371 1336 or to contact them and have them email you the locations, the link to their website to fill out the form is:

They are good about responding to the email request! There are over 15 photo requests currently and the volunteers cannot ask for that many locations to fill requests. With a location, your request will get filled pretty quickly. Thanks for your help
