Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired university teacher and librarian with interest in Civil War burials and burial practices. Also undertaking to photograph all cemeteries in Erath County, TX, and surrounding counties, then to enter the tombstone information into the database. Many older tombstones are in such shape as to be illegible, so corrections to bad or missing biographical information is welcomed.

Please make requests for additions, corrections, links, etc., directly from the memorials' "edit" feature rather than here. I'll get to them much faster. (Transfers to direct descendants, please, and not in bulk lots!)

Larry Owings
Ranger Cemetery
My name is Larry Owings,
Can you tell me where Ranger Cemetery is? I know where Evergreen, Merriman and a cemetery in town is, but this one has only 35 graves. You took a picture of Willis Barton. Any help would be appreciated.
thanks, Larry

Ken, you posted a headstone for a Guest at her memorial. I'm sure you wanted to post it elsewhere. Just letting you know. Jim

RE: John and della morgan
Sorry, my "Bad"....I was thinking of the cemetery in Dublin, not out near Purves...

And....thanks for taking all those pics in the cemetery. I did that for some of the cemeteries in Dublin, DeLeon, Comanche and another little place not too far from Comanche. (Can't remember the place)

Lucinda Frances Brown Shipman
My name is Wayde Shipman. Lucinda Frances Brown is my great-great grandmother. We have a family legend that she was an illegitimate daughter by a Native American Indian. I have not been able to find any documentation to that effect. Her mother was from Missouri and I did find church records where her mother was excommunicated from a Baptist church for 3 years in the 1850's, presumably due to this child. Just wondering if you know of any records relating to her father or do you simply post the grave records.

Nathan S. Davis, Jr.
Nathan S. Davis, Jr., was actually the son of Houston and Ada (Davis) Brooks. He was adopted by Nathan S. and Malinda (McBee) Davis, his maternal grandparents, who are also buried in the same cemetery as Nathan, Jr. Nathan, Sr., and Malinda outlived both their natural born children, and their only grandson.
