Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi, my name is Debbie and I live in Fort Worth, Texas.

Thanks to my father's passion for old cemeteries, I have always been a graver at heart.

I take pictures with a great deal of respect for those who have walked before us. If I manage a memorial of a direct relative of yours (within four generations), please email me and I will transfer ownership. Please note that I reserve the right to maintain my own ancestors memorials. Also, feel free to use any of my headstone photos for your genealogy website or any other legitimate purpose.

I would like to thank all the wonderful people I have meet along the way, photo volunteers and cemetery transcribers that have help me with my own genealogy.

I'm researching the Gibbons, Sparks, Hendricks and Collins, in or around Denton County, Texas; The Crawley, Dean, Dickson, Rayburn, Riley and Brackett families from Grayson, Collin, Floyd, Crosby, Potter, County, Texas and Harmon County, Oklahoma.

Most Wanted - If anyone with information on William Jordon Dickson, Sr. (b) 1860, in Lafayette, Mississippi and lived in Grayson, Collin, Floyd, Crosby and Terry, Texas from 1900 - 1941, please let me know. William (d) June 30, 1941 in Brownfield, Terry County, Texas. He was married to Lee Riley (d) 1909 and widow Maud Shackelford Moran (d) 1955 in Kern County, California.

Please contact me via the SAC tab ("Edit" then "Suggest A Correction") on any memorial I have created. PLEASE DO NOT send transfer requests, relationship links or additional information for memorials via the public messages option.

John L Clark
Dear Debbie,

We are Dennis and Gerda Hermsen from the Netherlands. In our search for information of John L Clark we came on your memorial for him.
John L Clark was a member of the 491st Bomb Group during WWII. He was a member of the Dan W Means crew, who is buried at the American War Cemetery of Ardennes in Belgium.
We have adopted several graves of the men of the Means crew and are searching for family or more information about John L Clark.
We were hoping that you could help us or you might know somebody else who can help us in our search.
Hope to hear from you.
Dennis and Gerda

Dora Gilden
Back to the GILDEN search.

Can you give me the exact location of the grave site for DORA GILDEN at Ahavath Sholom, Ft. Worth TX??

I did not see it near that of Morris Gilden and Helen Gilden.

Thanks again,

Mort Glazer

Morris Gilden
Thanks again for your assistance. In Ft. Worth Texas, my mother's father, Morris Gilden,information shows Born 12/25/1876 in Dallas Texas, actually Morris Gilden came thru Galveston TX, immigration arriving August 19, 1910
On the Ship HANOVER, departed from Bremem, Germany. His country of origin was RUSSIA
his destination shown on immigration records was to Dallas, TX. The 12/25/1876 is probably incorrect. 12/25/ was my folks anniversary and that date was used as a convenience. Morris Gilden was 32 years old according to the immigration form.

TURNPAUGH photos - Mt. Olivet
I want to thank you VERY much for taking the time to photograph the graves of my grandparents (Walter & Laura Turnpaugh) & great grandparents & great grand aunt (J.W., Rosa & Inez Turnpaugh)at Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Ft. Worth, in addition to your generous permission to use those photos in my Ancestry tree. I had requested new photographs by someone willing to allow their photos to be posted in my tree, due to the fact that the photographer of the older photographs, specifically forbid their use under applicable copyright laws. Living 1300 miles from Ft. Worth precluded me taking them without a lengthy trip. Again, thank you for your kindness & generosity! Kim Turnpaugh Anderson (

Madison Booth is my Great Granduncle, son of John Booth jr., Find-a-grave #20104854. John Booth Jr is buried at the Booth Family Cemetery, Washington Co., TN - a small private plot on a farm. I believe his wife and Madison Booth's mother Sarah W. Rogers may also be buried there, but it is inconclusive. Would you be so kind as to link Madison to his Father? I have a of data on the Booth family in Tennessee.

Sam Tomlinson
Yes, in my many calls with them when trying to get his brother's they told me they had seen the stone with the number on Find A Grave.
Thank you very much for doing that for me. If they do deny one I will let you know so you can repost your photos.
Thank you again and thanks for all your work in Find A Grave. It is very helpful to us seeking lost family.

Samuel Tomlinson #70977498
Hello Debbie
I would like to ask if you would temporarily remove the photos from Sam's memorial. I am in the process of trying to get him a headstone for his civil war service and am afraid if they see the large Tomlinson stone they will not approve a headstone for him. They would not give one for his brother who had a 4X4 numbered stone. After that experience I am really afraid they will do the same with the large name stone.
I do appreciate your help with this and all your effort you have gone to in doing these photos.
