Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired engineer who spent career working in Houston, TX at oil & gas equipment design.

My early years/schooling were in Files Valley, TX, just east of Itasca in Hill County, TX. There is a cemetery there that my Dad kept records on in spiral notebook. After his death, I realized that the notebook with all his notes on who was buried where was lost. In 2007, I began recording the Files Valley Cemetery with friends living in the area. When we completed that, and uploaded to internet websites, we proceeded to add memorials to many cemeteries in NE Hill County.

Bonnie (Wife) and I have been researching our families - McEver, Robinson, Allen, Pruett, & Jordan.

My interest in genealogy comes from making contact with special distant cousins, Maurice Allen, Vicki Bullard and others. We've created a family tree at website.

A final thought on what FindAGrave means to me. It is an excellent tool for preserving the documentation (memorializing)of those who have gone before us. To this end, it doesn't matter to me who owns photos, copyrights, etc. Feel free to use what I provide to FindAGrave for the purpose stated above. It would be nice to receive recognition.

Pruitt and Haygood.

Bonnie (Wife) and I have been researching our families - McEver, Robinson, Allen, Pruett, & Jordan.

Just thought I would mention that a lot of our family on the Pruett, Taylor, McGlaun, Tullis and Davis are in the Nesbitt cemetery in Robertson County, My 3x Great Grandma is there. Norma Pruett is the president of the Cemetery Association. I have a reservation for there at the end.

Thank you so much for transferring Ross Arvin Gaulding! It is such a blessing when a family member is placed in another family member's hands so that we can honor them more and show them more love and respect by adding to their memorial. Thank you so much for allowing me to do this. I appreciate you so much and all you do on Find a Grave. Thank you for creating Ross's memorial and thank you again for transferring him to me! Blessings to you!

Lots of love and hugs,

My grandparents on my Mothers side are Ida Ann Jordan and George J Washington. My great grandparents are Josephine Edwards and William Sylvester Jordan buried at Files valley. Would like to meet kin that may have old photos or info about these families.

RE: Joseph & Norma Allen
Hey Bob

I just received a call from Nina at Ojai City Hall, and she tells me they have no records for the Allen's. Are you sure of the cemetery? If you receive additional info. On them let me know and I will continue my search.

Joseph & Norma Allen
Hello Bob

I claimed your request for Joseph & Norma Allen, sometime back. This particular cemetery is overgrown, and seldom maintained . Plots are unmarked, and difficult to find without a map, which I have.

I can usually find them though the Ventura County Genological Society web site, which will list the name and plot #, then I can narrow it down on my map, and find them. However, they are not listed on the site at all. The only other way to try and find them is by calling the Ojai City Hall Public Works, and talk to Nina, at (805) 646-5581, x-200.

I left voicemails for her last week, and have not received a call back. I will try again today, but if I don't hear back by the end of the day, I will report your request as a problem.
