Bio and Links
Bio Photo Sabine County Texas cemeteries were indexed by me and a couple of helpers in 2000-2002. There are 148 identified cemeteries/burial places with 25 of these being almost lost with only faint signs of burial, to being completely lost with only a general knowledge of where the cemetery was located. I personally walked and indexed more than 135 of these. Many thanks to others that are interested in Sabine Co., TX, because of them, much progress has been made in making these memorials available to others. I am adding pictures of the markers I have taken, corrections and links to family members.

I have many of the Sabine County cemeteries completely photographed and hope to someday complete all of them. I have completed photographing the following cemeteries:
Abney-Scurlock Cemetery
Alford Cemetery
Beauchamp Cemetery
Bennett Cemetery
Bethany Memorial Gardens
Bickley Cemetery
Blackland Cemetery
Cannon Family Cemetery
Conner Cemetery
Conner-South Prong Creek Cemetery
Cooper Harris Cemetery
Cordray Cemetery

Now I am trying to identify unmarked graves and get duplicates and cremated memorials moved out of the cemeteries. I have begun photographing Gravel Hill.

I no longer live in Sabine County, but I have lots of Sabine County family information. I am continually researching Sabine County families and linking families. I would be honored to take care of any Sabine County memorial that you would like to transfer to me.

I am one of the "Find A Grave Keepers" for Sabine County, Texas.

I have walked where my ancestors walked, laughed where my ancestors laughed, and cried where my ancestors cried.

Clear, beautiful day!
I got all your photos. Just so you know, it is not only the marker that has Richard as Dale R. Van Gorkum. The California Death Index also has him name listed that way as well (i.e., Dale Richard Van Gorkum). You may want to add that to the bio section.

I'll be getting the photos this weekend, unless it rains really hard.

Best regards,

Hi Kay,
Was there something you wanted me to add to Amanda Vernuel McCary Tinsley and Winnie Amanda Edgar Tinsley? I got the edits but nothing was listed to make changes. I have ignored the request until I hear from you.

No, I didn't find it. Could you look at Google Maps - satellite and give me a GPS? (I had the same issue with Union Hill until I got home and saw that it was under the power lines from the photo!) -Rebecca

Would you kindly review your directions to this cemetery on the first page? Looking at Google Maps Satellite, they don't make sense. The number of curves and directions takes you back to a block from Hwy 244 where you start. Thank you. -Rebecca
