Grains Hill / Rains Hall Cemeteries

I see that you have visited Rains Hall Cemetery. Are you familiar with the area? I believe that Grains Hill and Rains Hall Cemeteries are one in the same. If you look at historic USGS maps, it is listed as Grains Hill. If you use Google "street view", there is a sign over the entrance that indicates Rains Hall. Can you confirm? As there is no Find A Grave map location associated with this cemetery, I would like to propose to the Find A Grave Administrators that the Cemetery name be changed to "Grains Hill Cemetery", AKA "Rains Hall Cemetery" and a map location be given "N 32.60478 W 96.52657". What are your thoughts and do you agree or disagree with my proposal?

Thanks, Aaron in Houston

May I have your permission to use the photograph of the headstone of Edna Maud Crawford in my personal family tree?
Thank you for taking the time to record these old headstones.

Shipley Cemetery, Kaufman Co, Tx
I was born and raised in Forney and know the area quite well. Shipley Cemetery was originally named Lone Elm Cem. thus me naming the cemetery Lone Elm-Shipley Cem.

Would you so kindly change the name on your memorials to read the correct name of the cemetery? When done, I will delete what I have put on there.

RE: Titsworth
I think several generations back, my husbands line comes through William Peyton Titsworth and Sarah Blackwell. The ones around Logan County, branch off of Col, Isaac and John Titsworth? They do all meet up around then, I think.

Thomas Noah Bible

Thank you for taking a picture of Thomas Noah Bible's grave stone ! I have been searching for his fate for over fifteen years !

I wanted to ask: Do you remember where in the cemetery you found him ? I know that there is a lot of brush grown around it. Also, I noticed a SUV parked in the background of one of the pictures. So, do you walk from the highway all the way to the back side furtherest from the road ? I may drive to Crandall to look around his stone to see if I can find his sister, Christina Bible.

Thanks again !
