Bio and Links
Bio Photo I will only do transfers through the memorial's EDIT TAB and usually only within Find-A-Grave guidelines.

I am a professional photographer and genealogist (over 50 years), and long time historian of Coleman County, Texas (over 40 years). Over 20 years ago, I, along with my wife, Judia, and Vena Bob Gates, published all of the marked grave inscriptions in Coleman County, Texas in the 3 volume, "Coleman County Cemetery Inscriptions." I also have these records online at

Judia and I both continue to visit cemeteries, but I do all the computer work. Judia is an artist and does not relate to computers ... she is soooo lucky!

I have welcomed Find-A-Grave to help carry on what myself, my wife and others are doing to keep local history information available and not forgotten. I began in the middle of March 2011 adding burials that have not been added for Coleman County.

I look forward to hearing from anyone interested in the cemeteries and history of Coleman County. Ralph Terry, Coleman, Texas.

RE: Ray Reece
That is a great way to handle the problem of having headstones in two cemeteries. Thank you for your help, I appreciate it. Maggie

I noticed that you posted the notice of my great-grandfather's murder. Do you have any other details regarding his murder.

Loraine E. Collins

I submitted a few changes to the information that is posted at her memorial. She is Lorena --I see that the tombstone says Loraine-- Edna Sturdivant, wife of Henry Wilburn Collins Sr, who is also buried in the Coleman City Cemetery. They were married December 13, 1853 in GA, probably Troup County. Their son Henry Wilburn Collins Jr is buried in The Colman City Cemetery as as well. The parents of Henry Wilbur Collins Sr were Anna and Levin Collins.

Mildred Evans Redford
Sorry -- My mistake! Her sisters' names are Civilla Adeline "Ginger" Evans Williams (not Dreyer) and Mary Alice Evans Sherman (not Dreyer too).
