RE: Thank You
Dear Sarah:

You are so very welcome Sarah!

It is my wish that memorials I build are found by family and claimed someday. Your Great-Aunt & Great-Uncle are buried very near my husband's Great-Grandfather Bernard N. Barnes in an older section of Grove Hill Cemetery in Dallas. As the picture shows the shovel on the marker, it was buried and we unearthed it to take the picture.

Older sections are not visited very often it seems.

Have a wonderful summer!

RE: Artexia
Absolutely! Already transferred your Great-Aunt and Great-Uncle's memorials to you for care. To have a family member ask is coming full circle here on Find a Grave. Always pray that someone will come soon.

Have a beautiful day!

RE: Nancy Stella Whitemore
Yes, Uncle Roy worked for the water department. Nora Lee and Wanda are older than me. About the time I came along the Butlers got a surprise baby, my cousin Peggy.

After working Hillcrest, I have come to believe that everyone in Forney is related to everyone else. Pinsons, Venners, Bannisters, Butlers, Roddys, etc etc etc.

RE: Nancy Stella Whitemore
Not knowing your age (snicker), I don't know who you might have gone to school with. Any Butlers? Nora Lee, Wanda, Peggy? My folks started in Forney with Arcadius Butler who married Exer Fleming and begat Mary Fleming Butler, my grandmother, who grew up in Forney. Her brother Roy was the father of the brood mentioned above.

Thanks for clearing up the Whittemore issue. Most of the ones buried at Hillcrest are listed under BOTH names.

RE: Nancy Stella Whitemore
On my list are Whitemores and Whittemores. Do you know if they were the same or different families? Are you from Forney?

The photos you took in the Hill Crest Cemetery in Forney Texas, can I use them in my online Cavis family tree? You might have also taken some with the last name of Starnes, I do not remember I would have to look.They too are int he family tree.
Thank you again for taking the photos. Cindy

Thank you! I live in Lexington, TN, and couldn't have gotten these photos myself. If you need anything from here in West TN, I'll be glad to try to help out.
