Bio and Links
Bio Photo We can all do more helping each other than we can working alone.

Working my way through entries I manage in Collin, Wise County and Clay County, Texas. I gained management of a large group of them just recently so is a work in progress.

Earthman Resthaven Cemetery in Houston, Harris County, Texas is a "project" of sorts for me, I have added over 15,000 entries and pictures to this cemetery so far.

If additional information is offered, happy to update entries I manage. I like to connect entries to their spouse and parent's entries, makes it much easier to move around for everyone and adds value to the entry.

Primary lines: Hollis, Patterson, Maxwell, Davenport, Combest, Riggins, Hammonds, Peck, Dick. But am collecting data on all associated surnames.
I love pictures, it brings a little life to these "dead" names on paper we work on every day. smile....Concerning the pictures I post to the Findagrave website, we have to make them smaller to fit on the webpage which means you can't zoom in on the picture to pick up details. If this is case on one you need, write me, I'll try to find the original and send it to you.

I choose to follow Findagrave guidelines for transfer, which can be found on the Findagrave FAQ page, but in summary.

I transfer your ancestors or your descendants or your siblings unless they are my ancestors as well, but remember your grandfather's sister's nephew is not your ancestor....I accept they are part of your family, but let's keep it your ancestors, your siblings or your descendants.

For updates or connections, please the "Suggest a correction" feature on an entry for update or transfer, this gives me a shortcut to the entry as well as sending me the correction you wish made. Typically, I will get the update or connection done the same or next day unless I am out of town.

Please don't make duplicates of existing entries, it is confusing to us all, having said that if I have made a duplicate it was an accident, please advise me so I can get it fixed either by deletion or having findagrave merge the 2 entries to preserve flowers or connections.

Some findagravers insist on having multiple surnames in the surname field because of several marriages, please use the surname they died with as it makes a search for them nigh on to impossible otherwise.

Henry H. Hoskins (per his Death Certificate) died 19 FEB 1927 Ohio Co., Kentucky, USA.

It also said he died of a heart attack, so said family.

His body was released on 20 Feb 1927. His son signed the Death Certificate.

It also says body removed or buried: St Thomas County or Cemetery, County Burial. Much of it is hard to read and I do not know what this means.

He could have been sent to Collin county and buried on the 24th but he did not die on the 24 of November.

My computer will not allow me to copy the certificate but you should be able to go to your tree and look for it.

RE: Tamborello
Hi, Richard! Thanks for your prompt response. No, I don't maintain the ones in St. Joseph's; I just contacted you first. I got into the forums and found that the primary memorials should definitely be where the graves are now (Earthman), but I am not convinced that the St. Joseph's memorials should be deleted. I think perhaps they should be marked as "cenotaph" (at least until it can be verified that there are no grave markers left there), with reciprocal html links placed to avoid future duplicates. Even if there are no markers left at St. Joseph's, I would still be inclined to keep the memorials there as place-holders (with html links to the Earthman memorials) to avoid future duplicates. Because since they really were buried there first, there are records that will show that and so someone sometime will add them again. So would you please add an html-link to the corresponding St. Joseph's memorials for Antonio and Croce?

Are you related in any way? I think the other maintainer might be. I'll be happy to contact her, or to stay out of it and let you take care of it, or to take over maintenance of all the memorials and fix them myself, just let me know what you'd like. My connection is that Michaelina Tamborello Eheman was my step-great-grandmother and we've always considered the Tamborellos and Cirillos to be cousins.
