This picture - my grandchildren visiting a cemetery with me June 2013 in Arizona, since they are young they still like to go with me. I live in Texas and Arkansas. I am researching the following families: Roberts, Bridges, Spinks, Henshaw, Banks, Reames, Reaves, Lowe & Sanders/Elrage. All should be located in Texas, Arkansas, Arizona, California, New Mexico and Oklahoma. Don't hesitate to contact me if I have made a mistake and I will make the corrections. If you have additional info, please let me know. For many sites I use the info off of the headstone and hope this is correct. If you are requesting a transfer, please include your member number. Thanks
RE: Dr J W Williams Yes I would very much. I found his city death record today and he died from nephritis and rheumatism. My husband is a doctor so I enjoy the history of physicians in Fort Smith. I can add the things to his page myself -Thanks so much.
Dr J W Williams I have additional information on your listing Dr. J W Williams in Oak Cemetery in Fort Smith, Ark. He was one of the first black doctors in the area. I have a book on physicians in Sebastian County, Ark. which includes a history of Dr. Williams. I will copy the information as an edit on his page. I take a lot of requested pictures in Oak Cemetery and I have seen Dr. Williams grave but I have not done research on him until now.
Billington I am looking for a Maurice Billington born on Jan 5 1970. He was my son. I just found information about him as I was searching. He's buried in the Willow Cemetery in Haskell Tx. I think maybe with my niece Willett McGinnies. I have no markers or anything. I would like to thank you in advance for any information you may have on these two children.
Hattie Bowden # 31266392 Yes, if you would please move her to Greenlawn Cemetery, Beaumont, Jefferson county, Texas I sure would appreciate it and I will remove my memorial, yours was done much earlier than mine.
I am about through with the Community cemeteries listed on find A Grave and I think that is all you have there. That big sign they have on the property is so confusing to so many people, plus the Greenlawn cemetery in Groves to add to the mix. I have photographed every African American cemetery in Beaumont and documented as many of the families that I can fine facts on.
kenneth Wayne Baker # 31266464 Hey again; Just realized that you have posted Mr. Baker in the Greenlawn Cemetery in Groves, Texas, could you remove him and place him in Greenlawn cemetery in Beaumont, Texas, this is another one of those confusing placement.
Kenneth Wayne Baker #31266464 No thank you on the transfer of this gentleman, I do appreciate your fixing the location of his burial. I have been documenting the African American cemeteries of Beaumont, which has been trickey, when proper names for the cemeteries are not posted on site and the cemeteries have gone through one or two name changes during the years.
Kenneth Wayne Baker # 31266464 We have a duplication of this grave site, if you will change the name of the cemetery to Greenlawn Cemetery, Beaumont, Jefferson County, Texas, I will remove my memorial. Community Cemeteries is a organization that takes care of burial cemeteries for African American cemeteries and care for several cemeteries here in Jefferson county.
