|Bio and Links|
I am a retired engineer who spent career working in Houston, TX at oil & gas equipment design.|
My early years/schooling were in Files Valley, TX, just east of Itasca in Hill County, TX. There is a cemetery there that my Dad kept records on in spiral notebook. After his death, I realized that the notebook with all his notes on who was buried where was lost. In 2007, I began recording the Files Valley Cemetery with friends that prefer to remain un-named. When we completed that, and uploaded to internet websites, we proceeded to add memorials to many cemeteries in NE Hill County.
Bonnie (Wife) and I have been researching our families - McEver, Robinson, Allen, Pruett, & Jordan.
My interest in genealogy comes from making contact with special distant cousins, Maurice Allen, Vicki Bullard and others. We've created a family tree at ancestry.com website.
A final thought on what FindAGrave means to me. It is an excellent tool for preserving the documentation (memorializing)of those who have gone before us. To this end, it doesn't matter to me who owns photos, copyrights, etc. Feel free to use what I provide to FindAGrave for the purpose stated above. It would be nice to receive recognition.

|Mindy Childs||RE: Bryan Whitfield in Itasca Cemetery|
Thank you so much and you are correct. I have been collecting family items for years and am now starting to put things in order. Your pictures of the Itasca and Eureka cemeteries are very helpful. I am related to several in both sites.
|Jennifer Gaulding Low||RE: Mary Gaulding in Itasca Cemetery|
I had just found that death certificate and noticed the dates were different. I know records can sometimes be wrong too. I wish we could find the birth certificate to have 2 records verifying the date. Let me know what you find out. And thank you too for what you do for Find a Grave!

Thank you for the quick response. Your time is very much appreciated. Deb
|Joan (Wyatt) Bradley||RE: Bessie Standly in Itasca Cemetery|
I believe the correct spelling for Nina Hannah Dashner's maiden surname is Reaves. This is based on the tombstones of her parents with actual photos showing that name on FindAGrave -- Thomas H. Reaves #37969785 and Elizabeth A. Reaves #37964220.
Thanks for the links!!
