Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born, raised, and educated in the great state of Texas.

I served in the U.S. Navy, worked for the Virginia Employment Commission in Portsmouth, Virginia, the Baltimore City Police Department in Maryland, and finally, The Methodist Hospital (now named Houston Methodist) in Houston. After 20 years at the hospital, I retired and moved back to my hometown.

Other than my own family members, I'm not related to any of those I enter on Find A Grave and I'm unable to provide any further information about my entries except what was in an obituary or what I've researched.


Please do not put Death Certificate photos on any of my memorials. I appreciate your research; however, the information on death certificates is not always accurate and, the COD doesn't need to be seen.

Please use the Edit tab which is at the top upper right side on each memorial, to correct names, dates, place of birth and/or death, add parents and/or spouses, and plot information.

To request transfers, send notification of dupes, or additional bio information, please, use the Suggest a Correction (SAC).

DO NOT use the public message (PM) for transfer requests as they will be ignored.


A big thanks to all who have visited and left flowers and notes for any of my entries, including my family members and my fur babies. Thanks also to those who've sponsored several of my entries. It is very much appreciated.

Glenda Manning Dennison
Good Job
Hello, I am Glenda Manning Dennison, the local contact person for Smith Cemetery. I am also the secretary/treasurer for the Smith Cemetery Association. Thank you for the work you have put into Find A Grave. You have done a great job! My mom, Antha Manning, was a Smith so I am am a great-great grandaughter of the man (Walter Smith) whose brother donated the land for the cemetery. Anyway I thought I would tell you that our Association meets yearly. In fact, that meeting will take pace this Saturday, May 28th after the Purmela Homecoming. Anyway I just wanted to thank you.

Possible Duplicate
Ruth, I'm looking at your memorial #162095785 for Thos Darrell Scroggins and it appears to be a duplicate of #14939617 for Thomas D Scroggins. Please let me know what you think. I'll submit edits to update name & add relationships, if you concur.

Hershall R.Collinsworth /Mart Texas
Hello , my names is Barbara Hill. I visisted the daughter of Mr. Collinsworth Sun. April 10,2016 .
The name Herold in the caption on Finda grave
is wrong her father's name was Hershall not Harold.

After she read the transcrption of the write up she
said other than the name Harold, the rest of the information was correct. Will you please be so kind as to change the name from Harold to Hershall.
that is they way she wrote it for me.
Barbara in Texas

Incorrect spouse link?
Samuel E. "Sam" Bessire, Jr, # 17125244 is currently linked to Edna Earle Ryals Bessire (1915 - 1976) # 45286966 which looks like it is an error when looking at the headstones.

Her ashes are probably buried next to her husband Perry United Methodist Church Cemetery, Perry, Falls County, Texas, USA, Find A Grave # 7603358 - they share the same stone.
