Bio and Links
Bio Photo US NAVY 1966-1968 Silent Service
Radio operator on (2) submarines & a supply ship.
Duty stations in order of service:
Main ID card VA & proud Navy Veteran !!
I specalize in babies (because they never got a chance) and veterans (because they gave us the chances that we have).
I'm hampered by 14K dial-up, so putting in fotos takes a while, be patient.
As a result of sub-service speed, I do most of my postings between 0400-0700 Texas time when internet usage is at a minimum.
Retired from GTE dba Verizon in Plano, Tx in 2007 after 27 years.
The dog in the foto is Precious, she is my constant traveling companion, mess with me and she goes into action, for real. !!!

Later, James Coston

RE: Robert Wilson, Eureka Cemetery
I think that's a very old request. Honestly, my life has been a mess for a year and I now live in Georgetown. I don't know what I wanted, but please don't trouble yourself.
Hope you and your canine companion are well.

Thanks so much for your effort to get a picture of his grave. Hopefully, it will be righted some day and we'll be able to read what it says!

Was wondering if there still is a temporary maker on his grave at Eureka Cemetery in Texas? Have you gone back since you create his webpage?

RE: Point Enterprise cemetery
Hi James, I just recently started back to the genealogy/ findagrave hobby after quite awhile. Hadnt even seen my messages for the longest.Im not exactly sure what you are talking about Brenda Howard. I dont know who that is. It isn't imperative that you photograph any of these I requested. I will be able to do them one day soon when I am done helping my elderly mother recover from an illness. Most of my family is buried there.I am not far from Pt. Enterprise. Thanks! Robin

RE: Mount Pleasant Cemetery @ Bastrop
Mr.Coston,you are a jewel! and I'm most grateful for your determination with find A Grave and also the Haywood's family request.A few of the family members got together and had a meeting and was able to find a location by satellite of the cemetery.But we have it on our plans to go this comeing winter to work in that cemetery. we have not been there yet because we just located a hundred and sixty year old cemetery of our ancestorsin Bastrop,Texas across Walnut Creek and how awesome was that we cried we shouted Hallelujah !! it was so awesome! to see my gg grandfather's grave.The family and I will go into that cemetery this winter. I have have a few request out there that I need to delete because we have located the cemetery and in a timely fashion we will do the necessary repairs and documentation.But I am so grateful that you went there and contact me this morning, I am so grateful to you, and we pray to God that the all photos will be returned back to our family one day.I pray that one day you will locate a picture of your ancestor it might be somewhat interesting if you will send out a request for his photo you never know who has what in their house. I didn't know where it would end up but I was hoping that someone knew something about my gg grandfather portrait,but you never know now days.
Thank You Again and may God bless you and your family & Pets :-)
