Bio and Links
Bio Photo It has been a joy to work on Find-A-Grave during the last 6 years. I have tried to mainly enter memorials that I have photographed, because I feel that photo's don't lie. In our area there have been quite a few entries to Find-A-Grave using old handwritten surveys. I appericate the effort that was taken to get these surveys & the effort to enter them on Find-A-Grave, but the people that entered them made many mistakes and have caused families, looking for their loved ones, to not be able to find them. I hope that my photographs have cleared up some of the mess. If you need corrections please use the edit on the memorial. I will transfer, to releatives within the guidelines of Find-A-Grave. I do not link to unknown burials (please read Find A Graves rules for unknown burials) Location of body unknown is used for recent deaths where the disposition is not currently known. Final disposition must be determined and updated within 30 days.
My main family work is Meador, DeCocq, Sellers, Sanders, Graham, Turner, Lee, Johnson, Devin, & Stephens
God Bless Everyone that has helped me!!!

For some that don't get the hint. I am a Meador, My mother is a Sellers, My Grandmothers were Sanders & Graham. My G-Grandmothers were Lee, Turner, Stephens & Lucas. My wife is a DeCocq & her grandmothers are Bucklin, Johnson & Hastings

PLEASE DO NOT USE MY PHOTOGRAPHS on any site that you have to pay to get into the site. I took the photographs for the entire world to use for free!
I spent my time photographing, editing & entering them for their family so they might see what they look like now. I did not take them for someone that does not care about them one bit except to make a profit! Richard Glenn Meador

I couldn't find Annie and there were no unmarked graves near William.

Donald Mark Reese, Sr.
Thank you for adding his headstone photograph! He was a beloved brother in law, who passed too soon and is greatly missed by my family and I.

John Henry and David Lee Sanders
John Henry Sanders, Jr. and David Lee Sanders were infant Negro (colored) babies of John H. and Annie (Howard) Sanders. They are buried in an unmarked graves, probably in the east part of Map Page 3, Section II or Map Page 4, Section II. All of the early Negro burials were in these sections of the Coleman Cemetery.

Let me know if I can be of further help.

R. M. and George Sanders Lot
I have added an image of the R. M. Sanders Lot at the Coleman Cemetery.

R. M. Sanders' (who died in 1889) tombstone is to the right of image. The tombstone of George P. Sanders, Sr. (who died in 1924) is the center of image. I believe Jessie (who died in 1939) is buried to the right or left of his father, George, Sr. However, Jessie could be buried on the back row, to the right of the image. He never married and was living with his brother, Robert S. Sanders in 1930. R. F. Sanders was the informant on his death certificate. I have no knowledge of a R. F. Sanders in this family, but it was probably Robert S. Sanders.

Burials in 1934 and 1938 were made on the center row to the right side of image.

Sanders at Coleman
I have added an image of the probable grave site of Robert W. and Mary Sanders, with the following caption:

"Possible burial place of Mary Sanders in Map Page 4, Section II. Her son has a marked grave to the right, where the small tombstone and red flowers are seen. Mary and Robert's graves are probably to the left (south) of his grave. This section was in use well before 1950, and was used for many burials that are unmarked and could not afford markers."

As there are no records for some of these earlier burials, this is the best I can do.

Rosa Elizabeth Lizzie Ratliff Sellers
Mr. Rocktalker,
I am very interested in the article you alluded to concerning Rosa Elizabeth, that was in the M &I on April 10, 1913. Is there anyway that you could
Email me a copy of this article.
Needless to say I am kin to Rosa.
Thank you,

Sanders at Coleman
Richard ...

I am still working on several other Sanders memorial for which you have requested images. Some of these graves are unmarked, but I am tracking them down. At least two are Negro children. Do you have genealogy that related these Sanders to each other?

Thanks ...
