Bio Photo Remember the Past ~ Imagine the Future

Volunteer: by definition means "a person who performs a service willingly and without pay." That is what its all about here on Find A Grave; volunteers giving freely of their time and resources. Yes, some have more time than others; more time to add more names, find more info and do more research, but that does not diminish the importance of the contributor who only has time to add just basic names. Sometimes its the smallest clue that brings the biggest results.

PLEASE try to remember because we are dedicated "Gravers" we have stomped through mud puddles, walked for miles, swatted mosquitoes, got stung by fire ants, stood out in 105 degree summer sun and/or froze our rear off on a cold & frosty winter morning - all to get that perfect photo (at our time & expense) others have requested from some remote cemetery out in the "boonies". So please, instead of complaining to us that we misspelled your loved ones name on the memorial pg we made for them (we are human, we all make mistakes, and we are more than happy to correct our typos), please consider how wonderful it would be for us to hear an occasional "thank you for your efforts."

Me, I volunteer in any area where I have the resource material to do so. My primary interest is in Angelina, Llano, Mason, Milam & Williamson counties but I'll research any that I can. If anyone has questions pertaining to Angelina Co cemeteries, or the info you've found listed about them here on Find A Grave, you may contact me. There may be cemeteries listed from time to time as being here in Angelina Co that actually are not here. Others may have been duplicated under "aka" names. And others not yet posted.
NOTICE: I HAVE CEASED LINKING TO "UNKNOWN" BURIALS, please do NOT ask me to link to them.
* NOTE: Per the Find A Grave guidelines, I do not post photos which I did not take, or have personal ownership of, or permission to use - that means newspaper obit photos (I've only posted a few obit photos in the past but have ceased doing so completely). IF I post an obit photo in the future it means I knew the person or family.(updated Oct 2012)

About Find A Grave: if you are new to Find A Grave (1) PLEASE read the FAQ section BEFORE you start asking for transfers or sending suggestions, corrections, additions, comments, etc. And when you do send your comments/requests (2) PLEASE use the "edit" tab found on each memorial pg to send your msg. Use of the edit tab takes us straight to the name in question and cuts down on mistakes. And (3) Unless I know you and know your work, PLEASE state the source (or reason) for the change/addition in the info (death certificate, obit, census, family Bible, personal knowledge, etc) I know I sometimes forget to add these to my SAC's, so if you need to know where I got my info, just ask me (for me, most will be from TXDC's or the census)

ABOUT MY PERSONAL FAMILY PHOTOS: you DO NOT have permission to take/use any of my personal family photos, period! (unless I personally tell you its ok) If you have interest in any of my personal family lines, contact me, tell me who you are and what your interest in my family names is.

ABOUT THE TOMBSTONE PHOTOS I ADD: if they are your family and you wish to add them to your family trees, yes you may do so, BUT remember to give credit where credit is due and note that you found it on Find A Grave "courtesy of Deb in Angelina Co". On the other hand, you DO NOT have permission to take & re-post my photos from other websites, or those here on Find A Grave, under your name as if you were the photographer. Whether good, bad, old, or new, I recognize my own photos. It's not about "owning", it's about giving another person the credit for the effort they went to, to gather & post data for the benefit of those who are searching for family. Thank you!

Family names of personal interest to me are too many to list, but my main line of research interests are in surnames: Alvis, Baugh, Collins, Coursey, Leslie, Hammond, Mankins, Moore, Mott, Murphy, Roberts, Secrest, Sharp, and numerous names associated with those families. The Honey Creek Cemetery (aka Coursey Cemetery by the old timers) in Llano Co is the resting place for many of my direct family lines. Others are in Bell and Williamson counties.

Other surnames of interest via marital lines are: Camp, Broomfield, Gallion, Kendrick, Keith, Pitts, Martin, Sunday, Tull/Tullos and those associated with them. If you have family history from any of these similar family lines feel free to contact me.

re: Roland Miles
I thought it was strange too that she was listed in a different burial location. Thanks for linking her parents and for your work with Findagrave.

RE: Bluebonnet Cemetery
I petty much got most of the photo posted on Find A Grave site for Bluebonnet that was listed. I will be adding 26 more entry with photo later tonight. Their is about 7 grave unmark, out their and Lawrence Whitfield the caretaker for this cemetery didn't have his chart out their for me to get the names of them. Their is three posted on the site for Bluebonnet, which I think where misspelled. I may send a message to the manager to make sure. I'm sorry I sent you all those date , but I notice you posted them fast. So in a sense we both did good. Take care and thanks for the help .Take Care

First let me tell you there aren't enough word to express how grateful I am for all your excellent hard work.

I have not yet found a death record for Maggie Allen, Hiram Moody's first wife. I think she may have died about 1915/16 in Travis Co. At any rate his second wife Rose ( different spellings through the years) was Rose Penny b in Kingsland, Llano Co in 1900. She was the daughter of William H. Penny & Francis Fanny Morrow (daughter of Alexander W Morrow & Melissa Crownover)

Palmira Rainwater Sybert
Dear Deb - I have recently begun to try to find out more about my father's family. When I Googled the name "Rainwater" in Pulaski County, KY, I was really excited to find my grandmother's twin sister Palmira. My grandmother was Elvira. She died when I was 4 years old, so I don't really remember her. I do know she spent her life in Somerset, KY, where I grew up, and she died there in 1942. She had three sons and I am her only grandchild. I was told she had red hair when younger. She was married to Wesley Roy Huff, also from Pulaski County. I knew that my grandmother had a twin sister who had moved to Texas, but that is all I know about the family.

If anyone has further information, I would really appreciate hearing about the family. Thanks so much.

Doris Bryson, Cincinnati, OH
