Remember the Past ~ Imagine the Future|
Volunteer: by definition means "a person who performs a service willingly and without pay." That is what its all about here on Find A Grave; volunteers giving freely of their time and resources. Yes, some have more time than others; more time to add more names, find more info and do more research, but that does not diminish the importance of the contributor who only has time to add just basic names. Sometimes its the smallest clue that brings the biggest results.
PLEASE try to remember because we are dedicated "Gravers" we have stomped through mud puddles, walked for miles, swatted mosquitoes, got stung by fire ants, stood out in 105 degree summer sun and/or froze our rear off on a cold & frosty winter morning - all to get that perfect photo (at our time & expense) others have requested from some remote cemetery out in the "boonies". So please, instead of complaining to us that we misspelled your loved ones name on the memorial pg we made for them (we are human, we all make mistakes, and we are more than happy to correct our typos), please consider how wonderful it would be for us to hear an occasional "thank you for your efforts."
Me, I volunteer in any area where I have the resource material to do so. My primary interest is in Angelina, Llano, Mason, Milam & Williamson counties but I'll research any that I can.
NOTICE: I prefer not to link to "UNKNOWN" BURIALS. Let's discuss it before linking, please.
* NOTE: Per the Find A Grave guidelines, I do not post photos which I did not take, or have personal ownership of, or permission to use - that means newspaper obit photos (I've only posted a few obit photos in the past but have ceased doing so completely). IF I post an obit photo in the future it means I knew the person or family.(updated Oct 2012)
About Find A Grave: if you are new to Find A Grave (1) PLEASE read the FAQ section BEFORE you start asking for transfers or sending suggestions, corrections, additions, comments, etc. And when you do send your comments/requests (2) PLEASE use the "edit" tab found on each memorial pg to send your msg. Use of the edit tab takes us straight to the name in question and cuts down on mistakes. And (3) Unless I know you and know your work, PLEASE state the source (or reason) for the change/addition in the info (death certificate, obit, census, family Bible, personal knowledge, etc) I know I sometimes forget to add these to my SAC's, so if you need to know where I got my info, just ask me (for me, most will be from TXDC's or the census)
ABOUT MY PERSONAL FAMILY PHOTOS: you DO NOT have permission to take/use any of my personal family photos, period! (unless I personally tell you its ok) If you have interest in any of my personal family lines, contact me, tell me who you are and what your interest in my family names is.
ABOUT THE TOMBSTONE PHOTOS I ADD: if they are your family and you wish to add them to your family trees, yes you may do so, BUT remember to give credit where credit is due and note that you found it on Find A Grave "courtesy of Deb in Angelina Co". On the other hand, you DO NOT have permission to take & re-post my photos from other websites, or those here on Find A Grave, under your name as if you were the photographer. Whether good, bad, old, or new, I recognize my own photos. It's not about "owning", it's about giving another person the credit for the effort they went to, to gather & post data for the benefit of those who are searching for family. Thank you!
Family names of personal interest to me are too many to list, but my main line of research interests are in surnames: Alvis, Baugh, Collins, Coursey, Leslie, Hammond, Mankins, Moore, Mott, Murphy, Roberts, Secrest, Sharp, and numerous names associated with those families. The Honey Creek Cemetery (aka Coursey Cemetery by the old timers) in Llano Co is the resting place for many of my direct family lines. Others are in Bell and Williamson counties.
Other surnames of interest via marital lines are: Camp, Broomfield, Gallion, Kendrick, Keith, Pitts, Martin, Sunday, Tull/Tullos and those associated with them. If you have family history from any of these similar family lines feel free to contact me.

I was able to visit this cemetery yesterday with the landowners. I am happy to say that the cemetery has a nice fence around it now, thanks to the landowners.
I was able to find and photograph all except a few of the headstones and have posted them, along with a cemetery photo.
I would like to go back at another time and find the other headstones, and perhaps get some better quality photos. Most of the headstones are pretty hard to read at this point, but could be identified and matched with the memorials.
Thanks for all the work you did creating the memorials for Isaacs Cemetery.

Hi, Yes it was her husband 1st name in the bio. Thought it might help some others who were searching if his 1st name was included. Thanks Mary Ann
|Lonnie Moore||Thanks for the transfer, W R Horton|
Thanks so very much for the transfer of my ancestor, William Richard Horton. I appreciate all your work on Findagrave, Lonnie.
|R. L. Vaughn||RE: Mullican|
You're welcome. Glad you pointed that out to me.
|Wayne Smith||RE: Belle Chandler|
You're welcome, always pleased to edit one of your memorials!
|Stacy Mills Gore||Duplicate memorial|
Thanks for the heads up on the cemetery error. I just added an edit to the correct memorial and deleted mine. Much easier. Again, thanks.
|R. L. Vaughn||Mullican|
Hi, Deb. I changed the W. G. and Susan E. Mullican links to the ones you suggested, since I noticed these are the older memorials for these two. Thanks.
|Charlie Wallis||Caddo Cemetery|
I notice you audited Caddo Cemetery in Milam County. We believe the White marker that the dates are not readable may be my wife's great-great grandmother. We are planning to visit the cemetery this Thursday and was wondering if you could tell us how to find it and do we need to get permission from anyone to go there.
