Bio Photo Born and raised in Dallas, Texas. Lived most of my life there. Then relocated, first to Decatur, IL and then to Hillsboro, IL.

Have been involved in genealogy for many years. I guess I was following in my grandfather's footsteps. Now that I am retired it has become my passion.

Could you transfer Robert Collins Sr (43048450) and his wife Mildred "Milly" Collins (43049116) to me. They are my 5 x grandparents.

You transferred others to me in past which I greatly appreciate. I couldn't remember if you were related to these. Thanks for considering the transfer.

RE: Elisha and Sarah Ray
Your are very welcome! It was the second time I attempted to use the flour trick on a set of gravestones since they were quite dark.

Getting back into genealogy
I just left a note to see if you were still active.
Then I found this when it popped up.
So If I saw this correctly,---You also was born in Dallas??? then move on to other places in this That is what happened to me in life. I was raised in Dallas, Married and moved to Richmond Ca(San Francisco Bay Area) until at age 69 moved to Fallon NV (60 miles east of Reno, NV)
I would like to send you an invite to see my history and perhaps see you a bit better as I know little about you except your Grandmother was Kitty McKnight....

duplicate memorial Sarah Palmer
Hi, Sarah Kitty Ogden Palmer is interred at the Texas State Cemetery and is memorialized on 104005068. The memorial set up at Austin State Hospital should be deleted as a duplicate.

The cemetery names are very similar, but online records confirm the State Cemetery is the correct location. The State cemetery was used for residents of the confederate home. Thanks for your efforts.

Charles Paris Armfield # 42111535
Hi There!
I have been researching this family on and off for a while now. Much of my initial information came from my mother-in-law and my grandmother-in-law. In the early 1950's they were living in Oregon, when they met an Armfield family at a Job's Daughters ceremony. (My aunt-in law Dana Lou Bateman (1936-1986) and Gail Edith Armfield (1936-2013) were being inducted into this organization.) The families got chatting and discovered Gail's granddad Elmer was brother to Dana's great-granddad, Charles Paris. My mother in law (who was about 10 at the time) remembers they were informed they had "just missed him"...which led her to believe (later in life) Charles had recently died....and I have always had "died abt 1953 in OR" on my family file....which has gone viral.....and now that information is everywhere!.....on other family files, on findagrave, and even in the Armfield family newsletter.

Seeing as Elmer died in 1949....i believe that is who they "just missed"

Charles is enumerated in the 1920 census in MT....and that is the last time he appears in records (OK ancestry has in in local phonebooks up to about 1923) it is more safe to say he died between 1923 and 1930 in MT

And the "Red" nickname was apparently because he had red hair (this information also came from this 1953ish meeting)

Thanks! I'm just hopping to correct my error!

I would like to pick up your photo request but Sparkman Hillcrest (SH) will not provide burial locations to volunteers, citing privacy issues. Your cooperation is needed in order for requests to be filled. The volunteers will need you to call SH and request the location. Their phone number is 214-363-5401. Once you have the location, please add it to your request. Thanks.
