Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always taken an interest in history and genealogy which I inherited from my gr-grandfather Porter Matteson. I find this site helps me to help others find their loved ones, even if they can't actually visit the graves. I enjoy helping with this mission. My goal is to eventually have most of the tombstones in McLennan County, Texas online for everyone to see.
I am willing to do some research if needed in McLennan and Falls County.

If you have a problem with something I posted, please email me or click on suggest a correction instead of posting it on my contributor page. I will address the issue as quick as I possibly can.

Double Headstone Need Info
You entered info for a CB James, memorial # 91164911, but not for the other name on the headstone? I am looking for Helen Faye Holden James' place of burial and hope it's her name. Can you find out for me? I called the cemetery and they would not give me the name so that leads me to believe it is not Helen Faye (or Helen H.). Email Thank you!

I don't know if you posted the bibliographical information on my mother's record. But Paul Harvey Ashenhust is not a half-sibling. He is her older brother. Will you please correct the information?
Thanks, Genevieve Farrell

Perry is a great-great-uncle I am researching. Can you confirm that Mary's grave is next to his? I think it is his 3rd wife.

Thank you so very much for transferring management to me of my maternal greatgrandparents. "Katie" was the only greatgrandparent of mine alive when I was born. She died when I was 11, so I had those precious years to know her and love her. My fondest memories of her were brushing and braiding her long white hair, while she'd tell me stories about the years she and her family spent living in Comanche, Texas after they moved there from Williamson County. She was quite a character and everyone in the family adored her! Thanks again.

Janie L Oswalt
Dear couchpotato, Do you have any info on where janie oswalt was from, as I'm pretty sure she is the one that used to come over to my wifes and mine apartment in Hurst, Texas, back in the early 70's. She was murdered by a janitor employed by Southern Methodist University in 1975. We have been trying to find out where she is buried for the last 40 yrs. as she was a very good friend, and my wife and I were out of town for two weeks when she was murdered, so we didn't get to go to her funeral. We found out about it in the newspaper. If you have any info on her, we would sure appreciate it. Thanks.

Transfer # 27046089

Could you please transfer # 27046089. It is the grave of my maternal great grandmother. Because I was 11 when she died, I have wonderful memories of her. Thanking you in advance.
