Bio and Links
I am the seventh generation of my family to have lived in the Brinker Community (originally called Richland) since they settled there in 1845. I am related to most of the people who are buried in the Richland Cemetery in Hopkins County, Texas. I serve as the secretary-treasurer of our cemetery organization and have done extensive research on those buried there. I would be happy to answer any questions and welcome new information.

Mrs. Cross, If possible, would you please transfer management of Rebecca Jean Stout Jackson to me? I am her son. Thanks, Rick Irvin

RE: C.C. Vickers
JoAnn, thank you for the transfer. Yes, I agree with Cooper, Texas on C.C.'s death certificate. On different census' the memorial that you transferred to me her spelling is Ollie and Allie, being the same person to the best of my knowledge with same birth year.
This family has proven to be difficult at times. Finding C.C.'s burial location and Celia Leora Josephine Tatum (?I am not confident that Tatum is her maiden name) Davis Vickers burial location is a mystery.

Stout Bowers
Sincere thanks for all your contributions to this cemetery. Hollie Herbert and Bettie Lee Stout are my grandparents, and Greta Stout Bowers, Travis Stout, and Mary Opal Stout are my Aunts and Uncle. I'd be honored to manage their info, if it would be of any assistance. Very Respectfully, Rick

John Fendley Bentley @ Richland Cemetery
Hi, again, Jo Ann.
I did visit the cemetery via internet. Yes, there are several Bentleys there. And yes, I do believe that this John Bentley is part of our family. He was the father of Baron DeKalb Bentley, and I do recall that name in our records. I will send this info to the cousin and let him have a look, too.
Also, on the headstone, it has James F. Instead of John F.
Thanks again...

Marilyn Calhoun ( Files )
Good Afternoon JoAnn, 26JUL2012

I am looking for information on my sister Marilyn Files, married name Calhoun. She was born in Syracuse,N.Y. to Dell & Margarete Files.
Both of my parents are now deceased. I know she had lived in Texas for some time but not much else do I know about her. Would like a copy of her obit if there is one. If you can give me any information on her it would be very helpful. Also any children she may had both living and deceased. I did noticed a child buried in the cemetery she is buried in, not sure if this was her child or not. Also who was her husband.
You can e mail at and i will get the info ok.
i thank you in advance for what ever information you do come up with.
Thank You,
Robert M Files Sr.

Ho JoAnn,

I have a relative interred at Richland -- Marville Greenberry Holbert. I'm curious if you know if his wife (Mary A. D. Holbert or perhaps the name Mary Jane Spears) is buried there as well? I couldn't find a link to her on this site.. but any research or pointers of where to look would be very much appreciated.

Thank you. :)

RE: Thomas Jefferson McCorkle
Thomas and Kizzie were my great grandparents, Maggie Katie McCorkle Patton was my paternal grandmother. My father,Jimmy Dee Patton was Katie's sixth child.

I have an old fuzzy copy of Kizzie's obituary. Do you have a copy of it? I'm looking for a cleaner copy.

Thank you,
