Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired university teacher and librarian with interest in Civil War burials and burial practices. Also undertaking to photograph all cemeteries in Erath County, TX, and surrounding counties, then to enter the tombstone information into the database. Many older tombstones are in such shape as to be illegible, so corrections to bad or missing biographical information is welcomed.

Please make requests for additions, corrections, links, etc., directly from the memorials' "edit" feature rather than here. I'll get to them much faster. (Transfers to direct descendants, please, and not in bulk lots!)

Mr & Mrs
Hi Ken,
Could we please ask your permission to add your photos to the Texas site as well? (
We would love to have you join us as a volunteer to this work in progress. I See where you have a lot of Erath county photos, and as of to date we only have 12 photos uploaded for that county.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.
Coordinator for Bowie, Cass, and Eastland counties.

Thank you for the transfer of my grandfather's cenotaph in the De Leon Cemetery. I'm the grandson who placed by my grandmother to bring the family together. Again, thank you and also for the many fantastic photos you have provided to us all.

Russell Family, Granbury Cemetery
You have taken grave photos of members of the Russell family in Granbury Cemetery. May I have permission to use these photos in my private family tree? I will give you photo credit if you would like. Thanks!

Is it possible that instead of Sylvester, the name could be Celesta or Selesta? My husband's great grandparents were Wallas and Celesta Howell. Many other members of the family are buried in this cemetery. Being in Massachusetts, I cannot just go and check out the grave stone. Thank you for your amazingly hard work and dedication.

Ken, I am a descendant of the Adcock family line. Ransom Jefferson Adcock Jr. is the Nephew of my Great Grand mother Lula Jane Adcock Green Holcomb who was the sister of Ransom's Father Ransom Jefferson Adcock Sr. There is a duplicate that has been made since yours. I have posted that contributors information in the Subject line of this message. Either I can contact him and request a deletion of the memorial or I will leave that up to you since your memorial was the first one created. Please let me know how you would like this to be handled.

I am not trying to stir things up, but one memorial is enough. I had already attached the memorial you created to my family tree in and discovered a second one. Thank you for creating a memorial for one of my family members and all you do for others.

Thank you once again,
Lester Van Huss (#47859148).

I see you are a Jones. Are you kin to Stella Faye Silas Jones? If so, was her parents James Thomas Silas and Callie Jo Isham?
