Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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 FindAGrave 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: Gilliams at Coleman Cemetery
Are you one of the Gilliam grandchildren? Mary Gilliam was my great-aunt.

Thank you for trying to find his plot in the Santa Anna Cemetery. It appears the memorial owner has him buried in the same plot as his infant brother. I have suggested he put "Unmarked Grave" in the plot area so another person will not be sent out. Thanks again.

George Edward Critz.
You show Critz as being captured at Vicksburg on April, 1963, when in fact, it was July 4, 1863. His compiled military service records also show that he was transferred to the Confederate Navy on February 24, 1864.
Hope this helps.
