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!)

Hi, thank you for putting my Great, Great Grandfathers information on Find a grave. I wanted to let you know that he was also a Texas Ranger and served with Buck Berry. That unit went into the War Between the States. He also received the Southern Cross of Honor from the United Daughters of the Confederacy for his service.

Thanks so much

David & Mallie Carter memorials
Hi Ken,

I am hoping that you will be so kind as to transfer the memorials of my great grandparents to me, David Edmond Carter & Mallie Kelley Carter. They are #53193474 & #53193473. They raised my Mom in Gordon, Texas, and my grandpa Carter at one time took us out to see them in the cemetery.

Thanks You for recording their gravesite.

Sincerely, Helen

Duplicate memorials for Charles Kleba Dempsey
Good afternoon, Ken,
It's been a pleasure to work with you over the years. I need your help, if you wish, to fix a duplicate of your valid memorial. But to make matters worse, your headstone photo of 2011 has been copied and placed on the duplicate photo.

Please contact me at to discuss a solution.
