Bio and Links
Bio Photo We can all do more helping each other than we can working alone.

Working my way through entries I manage in Collin, Wise County and Clay County, Texas. I gained management of a large group of them just recently so is a work in progress.

Earthman Resthaven Cemetery in Houston, Harris County, Texas is a "project" of sorts for me, I have added over 15,000 entries and pictures to this cemetery so far.

If additional information is offered, happy to update entries I manage. I like to connect entries to their spouse and parent's entries, makes it much easier to move around for everyone and adds value to the entry.

Primary lines: Hollis, Patterson, Maxwell, Davenport, Combest, Riggins, Hammonds, Peck, Dick. But am collecting data on all associated surnames.
I love pictures, it brings a little life to these "dead" names on paper we work on every day. smile....Concerning the pictures I post to the Findagrave website, we have to make them smaller to fit on the webpage which means you can't zoom in on the picture to pick up details. If this is case on one you need, write me, I'll try to find the original and send it to you.

I choose to follow Findagrave guidelines for transfer, which can be found on the Findagrave FAQ page, but in summary.

I transfer your ancestors or your descendants or your siblings unless they are my ancestors as well, but remember your grandfather's sister's nephew is not your ancestor....I accept they are part of your family, but let's keep it your ancestors, your siblings or your descendants.

For updates or connections, please the "Suggest a correction" feature on an entry for update or transfer, this gives me a shortcut to the entry as well as sending me the correction you wish made. Typically, I will get the update or connection done the same or next day unless I am out of town.

Please don't make duplicates of existing entries, it is confusing to us all, having said that if I have made a duplicate it was an accident, please advise me so I can get it fixed either by deletion or having findagrave merge the 2 entries to preserve flowers or connections.

Some findagravers insist on having multiple surnames in the surname field because of several marriages, please use the surname they died with as it makes a search for them nigh on to impossible otherwise.

Some of the information and dates are incorrect on her site. I would like to have control on the site. She is my greatgrandmother and my mother's grandmother.

LAVALLA HAMILTON: Please remove all information in the biography section that is showing above her parents names. The information was the result of bad information received from a Kliem relative. LaValla wasn't buried there because she DID NOT die until March 2014.

Would it be possible to add a note to this memorial regarding the last name.
After considerable research and communication with relatives, I have found that this is the grave of my grandmother's older sister.
The last name is misspelled; it should be Saunders.
Her name was Lillie Glenn Saunders.
Her parents were James Edward Saunders and Etha Electa (McClellan) Saunders.

thank you

Hi Richard,

Could you please unlink the spouse of Elizabeth Amanda Chipman (John Jackson Jones). He is buried in TN with his wife next to him. The link is incorrect.
