RE: Mem. #139166943 Minnie (HARRS) TYNER
The name HARRS is probably correct after all: I checked all HARRS entries on Findagrave with a gravestone and that spelling is also on the stones. So it is -contrary to expectation- an existing name.
In the cases that the stone did have HARRIS, I corrected the name.
Is there a gravestone for her and/or her parents?
Thank you.

Are you kin to Mariano Morales through his wife, Ruby, if so, how? She is my 1st cousin once removed and do not have you in my data base.

I was born in Bowie, Texas and have lived here all my life. We currently live in Argyle. We are members of the Denton County Genealogical Society and have also spent many hours in the downtown Dallas library.

Frank Vandusen was born is Portland, Oregon. Looks like a hack to me.

Totally confused ... why are there "two Sections" ... city (2 and A) and "two" lots" (997 and 111 ... for Francis Henry Springer? Are you saying these are found in the "Autry book."

Thank you John for the cemetery correction. As we know, it's vital to have accurate information. Glad you caught my mistake. Appreciate it.

Where is the Factory Cemetery that you are involved with? Donna and I (Joe) are on the boards of two cemeteries here, one of which we saved, through a successful lawsuit, from being paved over for a parking lot. They are the Lisbon Cemetery and the Smith Family Cemetery, both in Dallas County, Texas.

RE: Mem. #171317325
Find A Grave has already merged Forest Park Cemetery and Forest Park Lawndale Cemetery, thus the redirect. "Forest Lawn Lawndale" and its 27 memorials is a mistake and I believe that they all belong in Forest Park Cem., aka Forest Park Lawndale Cem.

That is why it needs to be merged with the other two. I live in Texas. Guess I need to research Find A Grave process for merging cemeteries in the FAQs.
