Bio and Links
Bio Photo As part of a team from the Dallas Genealogical Society, I am engaged in transcribing the 25,000 plus burials at Oakland Cemetery in Dallas, Texas. Additionally I have documented the burial locations of the mayors of Dallas, superintendents and board presidents of the Dallas schools. I have recorded the burial locations of my family members in Texas, Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi, Georgia and North Carolina. Recently added memorials and photos for two cemeteries in small towns in Calabria Region, Italy.

Hi Barbara,
I can't think you enough for adding the two newspaper articles on the Memorials of George E. Draughon, and his wife Hamletta Field. I would never have known that information. I had thought for sure that Hamletta had died in Los Angeles. What a great discovery. Thank you for all that you do for others. Larry Draughon

Thank you for the transfers. I appreciate it. I too have been meeting the photo requests at Oakland. I try to go 2-3 times a week. I also love and appreciated the DGS website. It has been very useful in finding the burials of the people who's photo requests are on the list. If I can ever be of help, please email me. Thanks again, your friend, Virginia Paredes Tijerina.

Photo Request for Ira Camp
I received the problem error from Find A Grave and I just wanted to personally "thank you" for your efforts to fulfill my request, and the verification of no headstone. At least I have the plot and grave number of where he is. Again, thank you so much for your time and effort on my behalf!

John Bruce Tarver/Ouida Fay Davis
Thank you so much for searching for Mr. Tarver's gravestone. Of coarse I did not know that he had no gravestone. Thanks for the plot number-etc' you sent and thanks for his wife Ouida Fay's information, that she does have a stone. I will put in a request for a photo of her gravestone. Thanks, Charlene
