Bio and Links
Bio Photo My primary interest is genealogy, so I photograph surrounding family members' graves when possible, even when those folks were not included in the request. Please feel free to use my photos in your family trees.

I am a retired English teacher in Austin, Texas. I am a third generation Texan if you count being born here, but there are five generations of my family buried here.

Please contact me if you have questions about any of the photos I've posted. For any of the memorials I've created, I'll be happy to transfer them if they are not related to me. Even if it is my relative, if you are a direct descendant and I am not, I will make the transfer.

Titus E. Merriman duplicate
Hello! It seems my memorial for Titus E. Merriman (#34098570)is a duplicate & you posted his headstone photo to this memorial. If you would be so kind as to remove it from my memorial & post to Memorial #10727814 I'd appreciate it very much. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Thank you. TexRose

Thanks so very much for the nice grave photo and the plot photo as well for Edward. There was some conflict in his death date, so the photo confirmed that for me!

I want to thank you very much for taking the time to take a photo of my grandmothers grave site. This gives me so much closure on my search for my moms family. My mom was orphaned by the age of five so she did not know much about her or where she was buried. Once again thank you!!!
