Bio and Links
Bio Photo Tony and Patricia Strickland (Logan) were married in 1961.

Upon retirement from the Army Tony pursued a career in Industrial Security management.

Fully retired we enjoy many things we did not have time for during the working days, like golfing, stained glassworks, as well other projects such as Find-a-Grave, volunteer at our church, as well enjoying grand parenting and great-grand parenting.

Our largest single project, the listing and photographing ALL laid to rest in our church cemetery, Saint Marys, Sherman Texas, is completed, and ongoing as more individuals are laid to rest. We are now focusing our attention to Cedarlawn Memorial Park here in Sherman.

Properly attributed, any photo that we have posted may be used in your family records. This includes Ancestry and published family history books.

If we added a memorial from someone's immediate family, we will gladly transfer ownership if requested, and will share larger photos if we still have them.

RE: Sadie Swift
Hi Tony and Patricia. THANK YOU!!!!!! Thank you for the photo and also for the info from the obituary. Can you tell me how I can get a copy of the actual obituary as well? I have looked in several places, trying to find the Sherman Democrat (or the Sherman Herald Democrat) and also the Denison Herald, and can't find it. So if you would direct me, that would be great. Thank you so very much.

Tony/Pat, Thanks for your time and effort in taking this photo. I know at this time of summer in Texas, it is hot, sweaty work. The lady I am working with regarding Sadie will be very pleased to see the photo.

Thank you for providing the pictures of Dewey and Clara's headstones. Contributors like you are a great help to genealogists living so far away.
