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!)

Jones family
I am looking for a man by name of O. F. Jones. I think perhaps his first name was Ollie as he had a daughter named Frances Ollie Meada Jones. I'm guessing he was born c. 1855 as he had daughters France, b.c. 1872 and Ida b.c. 1902. At some point, they lived in Wills Point, Van Zandt Co., TX.

Do you have any info on this family?

Many thanks,
Ann Payne

Hi Ken Jones:

I would like to use the photo of the headstone for Mary Lucinda Gill McCleskey which you have taken. This is for my own personal use in doing a book for a Yantis relative, and for my own personal tree.

Dear Mr. Jones;
I am grateful for all the edits you make which I have submitted. I have not said such but I offer them for family embers and do appreciate you time and effort to make these memorials as complete as possible. Should you ever see Dr. Wade, tell him hello. Scott Wallace
