Files Valley Cemetery
This relates to the status of the cemetery in Files Valley, TX. In the 1970s, a board was established to oversee maintenance of the cemetery. All of the board members are now deceased. In order to insure some level of maintenance going forward, a new board should be established. A meeting seems necessary to reestablish the board and the first group to make contact with, before going to the general population of the community, in my opinion, should be those FindAGrave Contributors who have shown an interest and demonstrated some effort to preserve the memory of those interred there. If you have experience in managing small cemeteries and/or the interest to participate in this process, please contact me via email at

Regards and thanks for all your work for FindAGrave.

RE: Clara Franks Chandler
I don't know of any Chandlers buried in Pilgrim but there is a marker for "Clara", no surname and no dates, but her marker is between Joe Franks and "Bill" whose marker also has no surname or dates.

RE: Henry Cleburne Franks
Hello, Brenda. Find A Grave does not approve of duplicate memorials but duplicates happen for many reasons. Mine was the first memorial created as you can see by the date at the bottom of the page so therefore is not a duplicate. If Nancy and Michael don't want to delete theirs, feel free to ask Fend A Grave to combine them.

RE: Henry Cleburne Franks
I did ask Michael to enter the article for Cleburne Franks.
Hopefully he will do so.

RE: Henry Cleburne Franks
Now are you talking about old Henry Franks born in 1883 or so. Buried at Pilgrim. H. Cleburne was his son. Did you give me a number on the original Henry.
