I also have used your photo of Augusta Albertina Samuelsdotter Barhydt's gravestone on my family tree. I hope this is okay. Gwen

In going through my ancestry.com family tree, I find that I have attached your photo of Earl and Lillian Biggs' gravestone, Memorial Park Cemetery, Amarillo, and I want to be sure that you have no problem with that. If you do, I will be happy to remove it; otherwise, I will attribute it to you. Thanks for your consideration. Gwen

I am a grandson of James Braxton Dorris Jr. This has been really interesting finding and reading all the information. I didnt know much of Grandpas past beyond his dad and mom.
We have a picture of James Sr and Maude when they were married. My older brother looks exactly like James Sr. It is kind of spooky. Haha. My brothers name is James.
We also have a pic of grandpa when he was in the navy, he joined when he was young around 16. My brothers son looks exactly like grandpa. The Dorris family resemblance is remarkable

I will look for the obit. Sorry I forgot about it. My granddaughter, her husband and two little boys moved in with us a while back and I don't have the spare time I used to. I love having the boys here though. Marsha
