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. I volunteer for Find A Grave in numerous counties. I volunteered previously for the Texas Tombstone Transcription Project. I also volunteer in the TXGenWeb Project. I do volunteer look-ups from resource material that I own on assorted Texas counties, however the primary counties are: Angelina, Llano, Mason, Milam & Williamson counties. My main county of (personal) interest is my birth county of Llano. If anyone has questions pertaining to Angelina Co cemeteries, or the info you've found listed about them here on Find A Grave, you may contact me. There may be cemeteries listed from time to time as being here in Angelina Co that actually are not here. Others may have been duplicated under "aka" names. And others not yet posted.
NOTICE: I HAVE CEASED LINKING TO "UNKNOWN" BURIALS, please do NOT ask me to link to them. You cannot "find a grave" if you don't know where its at.
* 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 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, email me, tell me who you are and what your interest in my family names is.
ABOUT THE TOMBSTONE PHOTOS I ADD TO MY MEMORIAL PGS: 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 do not know why you got the "no change" but I apologize for it. Please consider the changes for Frances Grooms Hoke. Thank you.
|Debbie Shumaker||RE: Polk County|
You provided more insight that I could have hoped for. Thank you for your time. I owe you my debt of gratitude.
|Debbie Shumaker||RE: Polk County|
Her name is actually Artie Rether Freeland. We only know his name was William Henry Beauchamp, based on the delayed Birth Certificate of my Grandfather Edward Thornwell Beauchamp. The marriage license for him was under W H as well in Polk County in 1909.
|Debbie Shumaker||Polk County|
Do you have any information from Polk County or know someone that does?
I'm trying to find information regarding my Great Grandfather, W H Beauchamp who was last recorded in Census 1910 - Justice Precinct 6, Polk, Texas, USA with his wife and son. His wife, my Great Grandmother was back living with her parents, three children and two siblings in Lufkin, Angelina County as a widow. 1920 United States Federal Census - Retha Freeland
State: TexasCounty: AngelinaSheet: 12-AFamily: 264Line: 28Image: 143
I've been looking for him for over two years now with no success.
|brenda||RE: Brooks Cork|
She's next to Dewey K Morgan, I know that because we knew him when he was still alive and my mom noticed that she was buried next to him when we were at her funeral.

|Cemetery Walker Too||RE: following up|
Hi Deb, needed a break...back at it. I know Ancestry emailed me, but haven't gotten back to the emails yet. If they can't xfer whole cemeteries, I'm going to ask that they can find and replace my number with yours.
I'll email when I request.
|Debbie Shumaker||Lufkin, Texas|
I want to thank you for all your hard work. My Mom, Vera Faye Beauchamp was born in Lufkin, TX in 1932 to Edward Thornwell Beauchamp #16842616 and Bennie Elsie Nerren Harp #85887967. My Mom turned 82 this year and I cherish every moment I have with her.
The family moved from Texas to Los Angeles in the early 40's. I have never been to East Texas to see where her family came from. I've found and have been in contact with family I never knew I had because of what you and Judy Murphy do.
God willing, I'll be in East Texas next Spring to visit the graves of the family I never knew. I may need a few hundred roses to leave on each headstone.

|Cory||RE: Elmer Quine|
You are very welcome Deb. I had to sponsor this distant relative after reading his obit. Like Elmer, I used to drop trees with a chainsaw and I would also climb them to trim/cut the branches. It was a side job that I enjoyed. After the hurricanes came through it kept me in good shape. I never had a major injury, but decided to retire from the chainsaw at 40 years of age, quite some time ago.
