Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family history since 1977 way before they had computers, I did everything the slow way back then, snail mail, microfiche, film rolls, corresponding with other researchers, handwriting it on forms and figuring it all out. I took my AncestryDNA and the results are back. If you see any of these names in your list and have taken your DNA as well send me a message to my email listed.

Her name was no Elizabeth it was just Eliza. I know this because she was my grandmother, and thankfully I only got her middle name!

William Thomas Baxter
I have discovered two Find A Grave Memorials for William Thomas Baxter... Your memorial and one in the Oakwood Cemetery in Comanche TX. # 80295903
DOB 9 March 1840
DOD 23 Feb 1893
There is a photo of a military headstone with the following information:
William Thomas Baxter CPL Co G 144th Rgmt Illinois Infantry Civil War
William and wife Tonelia had a daughter,
Mary Laura Tonelia Catherine "Lurah" Baxter. She married Thomas Patrick Kelly, who was my great grand uncle. His father was William Hansford Kelly, who was the brother of my great grandmother, Jenny Nevada Kelly Smith.
Do you think that his daughter had this headstone laid in remembrance of her father?
With all the similarities in names and dates this seems to be the same family line.
I look forward to hearing from you. I love the old photo of William Thomas...

RE: Henry Meiser
Well, I'm sorry if that's confusing to you - but there is not an option to add info to a cemetery photo, like there is for other photos added to memorials. I view the stone there as a type of signage to identify the name of the cemetery - and its does says "cemetery photo" under it. Its unfortunate the people who took the trouble and bore the expense of that stone included what I'm sure they considered historical information. I dont believe it was meant to mark someone's final resting place.

Cemetery photos are submitted to Find A Grave for approval - and not just uploaded like other photos. They are a little different - and it was approved by them. You could always try and contact them for a resolution.

And just a note - Henry Meiser's name does not appear on the Wagenseller list of burials from about 1900 for this location - are you sure he's here?

RE: Henry Meiser
Hi Deborah - that photo you see is the cemetery photo, not a photo for Henry Meiser - and it appears on all the memorials at this site. You'll notice the name of the cemetery at the top of the stone. Hope this clarifies. Thanks (I don't always get them right - lol!)

RE: Photo Request
Crestview request a section name like Mediation or Lilly Pool to go along with the lot and space.

RE: Charles Edward Baxter
Is the email listed the best one to send the obits to? I can send them in a PDF for you.

RE: Charles Edward Baxter
You are welcome. I have searched for other obits for the Baxters that are listed at Odd Fellows and have sent all that I can find to the page owners. If there are any you are interested in but do not own the page please let me know I would be happy to send them to you.
