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!)

Ball Family - Doty Cemetery
Hi Ken,

Wanted to let you know that Charles E Ball 6 Sep 1884 - 31 Dec 1930 is the husband of Nancy Emmaline "Minnie" Reasoner Ball 10 Apr 1884 - 29 Aug 1960. The informant for Nancy Emmaline "Minnie's" death certificate was their son, Cecil B Ball.

William M Ball 12 May 1851 - Jan 1941 and wife Nannie Rice Ball 06 Jan 1876 - 14 Jul 1924 are buried there. Their son Claude Thomas Ball 6 June 1877 - 29 Feb 1960 & his wife Della Oden Ball are buried there.

Claud Thomas Ball & Della Oden Ball have children, Dorothy Mozell Ball and Gertrude "Gertie" Ophelia Ball and son Claude Delton are all buried there at Doty.

Can you please tie all these people together? I would greatly appreciate it. I tried doing it through editing but it would not let me.

Sorry I tried to put the dates of my grandmother in and I mistakenly put the wrong place of birth. It is Lanham Tx where she was born. Thank you for helping me fix it.

Ken, I must apologize. I didn't see that you had the memorial for Everett Brown already photographed (22084671). You have it under "R.W." instead of E.W., so I mistakenly made another memorial with the same tombstone. I just did a search for all Browns in Indian Creek Cemetery and found yours.

Marriage Info Fines Clark Martin
I was researching Harris family history and found information on Fines Clark Martin (1909-2001), who is buried in the East End Cemetery in Lingleville, TX. He was married 14 Dec 1932 to Arlene May Smith, age 18, from Hindsville, Madison Co., AR. She was the daughter of Fay Madison Smith, born 7 Apr 1891 in AR, passed away 25 Feb 1974 in AR, and Maude Harris Smith, born 30 Nov 1893 in Whitener, Madison Co., AR and passed away 25 Feb 1973 in AR. They are both buried in the Hindsville Cemetery, Madison Co., AR, along with Arlene's two siblings. Marriage info for Arlene Mae Smith and Fines Clark Martin is from Arkansas, County Marriages Index, 1837-1957 and Arkansas, Washington County Marriage Records, 1845-1941. I am a Harris relative. Could you please add her information to his memorial? Thank you for your assistance and also for all of the hard work you do in maintaining these sites.
