Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a retired chemical engineer living in the Houston area, though my wife and I grew up in Austin, Texas. We are researching the branches of our family that spread from Central Texas to East Texas, over to Alabama, Georgia, and all the way up to Ohio. We have found this site to be extremely helpful to us, and we hope that we will add information that will be of help to others.

We have been searching Texas and Ohio cemeteries for Cox, Whitt, Koos, Blower, Stewart, Davis, Cherry, Ely, Hubbard, Zimmer, Miller, Watson, Cross, Hurley, Locke, and Braly, but in the process of looking for our relatives, we have been taking additional photographs, especially in cemeteries where not many photos are available. YOU MAY USE ANY OF OUR HEADSTONE PHOTOS without asking our permission; however, we would appreciate receiving credit for our photo.

If we manage a memorial for your relative, and it is not someone related to us, we will be more than happy to transfer the management to you. Unlike some contributors, we usually do transfer non-direct relatives such as cousins, aunts and uncles.



We do NOT transfer these family names: Blower, Cox, Cross, Gazell, Hubbard, Miller, Watson or Zimmer.

I added pictures to Mark Millard, Melinda Ray, and Mr. Spees' pages because their sister and mother, my friend, Dorothy, had put rubbing stones on each grave and I thought that should be preserved.

I usually try to take photos for recent burials that I know of that have not been posted.

Thank you, again, for all you do.

I just continue to marvel at the beautiful work you have done on graves and photos of Oaklawn Cemetery in Delta Co. They are so beautiful.

RE: Hollister Cemetery, Ohio
Thank you for the offer, but I think I will decline for now. I have just recently started to use Find A Grave, so am still in the learning stages.

I want to thank you texnative for your contribution to Find A Grave.
I was fortunate to find the gravestone for Steven L. Vaido who is buried in the Hollister Cemetery, Athens Co., Ohio.
His former wife was Geraldine Ann RAFUSE. Her parents were Murray and Maxine. Geraldine was a first cousin to my father.
