Bio and Links

I have been researching the Barnes, Lloyd, Nash, Rogers, Shoemakers, Stephens, Vaden, Vines, Williams, and others for over ten years. I love the concept and the work that has been done here.

I was born in Dante, Russell County, Virginia. As my family moved about, I have lived in Virginia, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas (a southern boy with southern heritage dating back to the early/mid 1700's.

I have been able to trace my wife's Vaden family back to D D Vaden born in Chesterfield County, Virginia. Although I have not found the link yet, I believe he is related to the Vaden's (Vodin, Vauden) that immigrated to the colonies in the mid 1600's. They migrated from Virginia, Ohio, Tennessee, Georgia, Mississippi, and other places before settling in Hunt, Lamar, Fannin, and Jones Counties in Texas in the mid to late 1800's.

I currently live in Lubbock, Lubbock County, Texas. I would be willing to help with taking pictures of tombstones in the Lubbock area. I can also look into other areas in the Lubbock County.

If any errors are found in the data I have entered or if you would like to add additional information, please let me know. If you would like to have a memorial transferred to your ownership, please let me know.

RE: Charles Booker Reddick
Thank you very much for processing my Edit Requests to Link Charles to his parents and 2nd wife. Thanks for your work with this site.

Do you have any connection to the Reddick Family?

I'm on a "mission" to Link 5 generations of this family together on Find A Grave. Love Find A Grave!!

Guess I should leave a Message too for those managers who haven't responded in more than a month. Maybe they didn't receive any Edit Request notice either.

Sparkman HIllcrest (SH) will not provide burial locations to volunteers, citing privacy issues. Your cooperation is needed to in order for requests to be filled. The volunteers will need you to call SH and request the location. Their phone number is 214-363-5401. Once you have the location, please add it to your request.

You can also go through the SH website at this address:

Click the third tab that says "Other Requests." Fill in the blanks. Where it says: " What is your request in regard to?" use the drop down menu and select "other." In the message put the name and birth and death dates of the person you are looking for and that they are buried at Sparkman Hillcrest in Dallas, Texas. Once SH has replied, add the information to your photo request.

Thank you for your help.

Lucy Latane Walker Vaden
Hello Charlie,

Forwarded the above memorial to Lucy Vaden's daughter, who lives across the street, and she says that her mother, Lucy Walker Vaden, was born in Fort Worth, Texas. Her parents were born in Virginia as was her older sister Katherine. I checked the 1920 and 1930 census and Lucy's birth place was listed as TEXAS.

Would you please make that change for me.

Also, she says that she is going to give me updated information on Lucy Walker Vaden's husband so that you can add birth and death locations and a brief biography that you can copy and paste onto the memorials.

Thanks in advance for making the correction and keep up the good work,

Edits on the Find a Grave system
On your personal findagrave home page there is an edit tab at the top of the page. If you click that tab you should see where I have entered the plot numbers and you can choose to accept or reject any corrections all at one time which makes it easier. This was new to me a couple of months ago. It might be new or I just didn't see it. Unfortunately you do not get any email notice that corrections are there other than a number showing up next to the edit on the tab. You just have to know to check it every now and then.

Travis Golay photo request
I would be happy to fill your photo request, however, can you contact Grove Hill cemetery and get the burial locations for your requests: 214-381-7118
There are over 311 photo requests and the volunteers can not ask for that many locations.

Your request will get filled with the location information. The cemetery does not like to cooperate with findagrave volunteers.
