Skinner Cemetery - James & Anna Elmore
Shelly -

I have looked for my Great-Great Grandfather and Grandmothers (James & Anna Elmore) burial site for several years. All my family said he was buried in the Pilot Point Community Cemetery. When I couldn't find their burial site I was told it could have been unmarked. Thank you for your work at the Skinner Cemetery. The Elmore's were original settlers in Grayson, Cooke and Denton counties. Earliest record I find was 1852.

I am curious - were your photos and cataloging of the graves in the Skinner Cemetery the first work done there for Find A Grave. I ask because I have researched this for quite a while and had not been able to find James or Anna.

Thanks for your time and energy for the photo; still a mystery.

Thanks for the explanation of the names; I'll try to get that noted on the memorials also. Thanks again

Nannie Jones memorial #39835203 and W.M. Jones memorial #39835202 - were husband and wife - they are my great grandparents. W.M. was her husband, William. I don't know if you can add information that doesn't appear on the headstone, but Nannie's maiden name was McLaughlin. W.M. Jones was born David Tilmon Cheatham.

Hello and thank you for the information. I've actaully seen this reward offer; it's available on if you're a subscriber. I find it a bit odd that the Governor was offering a reward twenty years after the crime, but that appears to be what he did. I do not know if Drew Derr was ever arrested or what became of him.

RE: Gerti Ellington #39796800
Hi Shelly,

Thank you for contacting me. I may need to create a memorial Gertrude Ellington's daughter Matti Juanita Ellington, DOB: 21 MAY 1910, DOD: 04 OCT 1910, as this is the only proof I have for now and was found in in order to add her.
I can't seem to locate a phone number to call on Midway Cemetery, to find out if little "Mattie", is actually buried there.

Again, thank you for your valuable time.

Shelley, I noticed that you just posted some information about Zeke Holloway. He is a relative of mine. When were you at the cemetery? I am the person that is attempting to take care of the cemetery, but not much help. We need a gate and some serious brush removal. Would there be help available for this. Just asking... Thanks a lot for what you are doing. Just registered to Find A Grave.

Gerti Ellington #39796800
Hi Shelley,

You transferred this memorial over to me Mooretoots)some time back, and my question is, how do I personally add 2-more children, to Gertrude Thomas Ellington's memorial?

Thanks, and GOD Bless!
