Katie Wilson Martin
My grandfather was Katie Wilson Martin's brother, his name was Henry Brown Wilson. I have a tree on, but I don't have alot of information about their father, Philip Wilson. Do you know much about that branch?

RE: phot request claimed
Hi. I am assuming you are referring to Elizabeth Greeson. She does not have a section and lot number. So if you can get that, I can take the photo. I looked at and there is not an Elizabeth Greeson listed. Are you sure she is buried there? You may want to confirm with the Crown Hill genelogist. I will help in any way I can.

Ule Martin Grave
Hi again Lori!

I think I've found your grandfather's grave! I found this Web site about Shelby County, Texas cemeteries and then I just clicked on the different cemetery names to see if there was a listing of all the people buried there. When I clicked on Oaklawn Memorial Park Cemetery in Center, I found a Uel Lois Martin in their listing. The information for him is:

Uel Lois Martin
Born 08-23-1922
Died 09-07-1996
Pfc., U.S. Army, WWII
(Buried in Area 4:Garden of Last Supper of the cemetery)

Does this sound right? Do the years match up? I hope so! Here's the site link so you can check it out!

There are several other Martins there too:
Annie Belle Martin 1903 1984 w/o W. B. Martin

RE: Hi Lori
You are so welcome, Lori!! I'm so glad I could help. I've been able to view the graves of my ancestors too on here and am very grateful for what everyone does to help out the other! I checked thoroughly and did not see a Katie, so that may be true. Glad I could help! If you need anything else around LaSalle Parish, just let me know. :)

Hi Lori
Hi Lori,

My name is Morgan & I live in LaSalle Parish. I accepted your photo tasks and visited the Harris Chapel Cemetery. I was able to take pictures of all the graves you listed except for Katie's. I could not find it. I did go ahead and take pictures of all the Martin graves I saw there. I'm going to look over them again and see if I just missed it. Hope this helps you!

Caleb Thompson
Lori, Mr. Caleb was a very good friend of my Grandfather, William Thomas Cooper. I remember him driving up to visit him often while I was there. I do remember what he looks like, but I have no idea how you could obtain a photo of him. He was a very nice man that I liked to see come around while I was visiting my grandparents. He was quite a bit older by that time. I believe I have the obit from the newspaper that I found in my grandmothers things, that is how I put the memorial on findagrave. Once I get back home I can try and find it for you.
