Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a geneology researcher and am particularly interested in helping to preserve the records of our past that are found in old cemeteries. Besides, it's a good excuse to get outside and get some fresh air. ;-)

I live in Nacogdoches, Texas, the oldest town in Texas. My family on my mother's side settled here in the 1830's.

All photos I've taken are free for you to use. You may add them to your geneology pages, copy, print, share or line your bird cage with them. You do not have to credit me as the photographer. What I do is a labor of love out of respect for those who have passed. I don't need recognition for that - it is reward enough.

RE: Findagrave memorial 46293424
Thanks for advising me of this. I was able to contact the person who created a new memorial for her and link her to him, and her wrong memorial and link has been deleted.

RE: Findagrave memorial 46293424
Thanks for noting this. I know they were brother and sister and she was maried to Cue, so I'm not sure why the links would be like that. I'll look at it and fix it.

another photo
Sorry but there is also another photo incorrectly placed. Can you please remove it as well?

The photo you added to Thomas Burton Forse # 10376352 in Fairview Cemetery is not him. It is his father. Enlarge your photo, compare with one in place for his father and the dates, you will see they are same.

So many of those old markers are SO hard to read clearly. It makes it really tough to figure them out sometimes! Especially when family names are so similar .....

incorrect photo
Hello, if you will please look closely at the photo you added to memorial# 10376343 "Beatrice Burton Forse" in Fairview Cemetery, you will see it does not belong with this entry. The dates are completely different. There is already a close up of the stone for this name. It does not match your posted photos. They are different people. I have also added another photo, a full shot, of the stone where this name is actually at. It is same marker that the closeup was done on. It is a very pale and hard stone to read but if you zoom in to full view, or check the closeup, you can read it pretty well.

Thank you so much for this clear picture of his military headstone. Would you mind if I post it on my public Ancestry tree, of course, giving you full credit?
