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!)

Wesley Grayson
Am searching for any information on Wesley Grayson grave in Proctor cemetery. My ggrandfather, James Monroe Grayson is buried in same cemetery.

Am also searching for information on a Marvin (possibly first name) Grayson who would have been born in Texas or California between 1905 and 1911. Probably died in Texas 1911 or earlier. Son of James Monroe Grayson [Jr.] and Emma Busby Grayson.

Thomas Glover Payne
You posted that Thomas Glover Payne died 16 Sep 1889. I cannot read the tombstone clearly but it looks as thought it might be 1896/98. If you have time to double check this, I will really appreciate it!

Thanking you ahead of time,

I've created a memorial for Robert Travis Barnes (husband of Betty J. Barnes). http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=144847382.

You have a great photo of Betty and Robert's grave on Betty's memorial. Would you like to add this photo to Robert's memorial as well?

Thanks so much!

Janie

Luker Cemetery Groundskeeper?
I am a direct descendant of William Allen David Ewing II who is buried in Luker Cemetery. My understanding is that this property was ceded by him originally. I am wondering who owns it now, and who takes care of it? Please advise how I can get this information.

Family ties perhaps
Ken,
I believe we may be related! I am the great grand daughter of Nancy Rachael Jones Bailey, daughter of Elisha B. Jones. If you believe we are in fact related, please email me. I would love to compare information.
Thanks,
Wendy Wellborn
