Bio and Links
Bio Photo GENEALOGY has been in my life for over 40 years. Putting Madison County graves and photos on Findagrave is my personal goal. Findagrave is an awesome database. If you are close kin to anyone whose grave I photographed and wish to "manage it" please notify me. I will ask for your relationship so have your genealogy handy. Corrections and/or additions are also appreciated. I also appreciate any additional information about infant graves.(i.e. who are/were their parents)
Hoping this site has aided you in your genealogy.:)

About a year ago I drove my mother, Patsy, to Madisonville to place flowers on her sister's grave. My mother is now the only surviving sibling out of her large family. This will mean a lot to her to know that you have added her sister on this site.Thank you so much for spending the time to connect people to their families.

Memorial Oaks photo request
You requested a photo of a grave in Memorial Oaks cemetery in Houston, Texas. I went there today and asked them for the location of the grave, but they said they couldn't give me the location because I'm not family.

I would be more than happy to shoot the grave if you would be kind enough to call them and ask them the location of the grave.

Batson Photos of Madison County, Texas

I think I have asked this of you before but can't find the e-mail or your reply. I am asking for permission to use the photos you have on Find A Grave of my relatives, example, Mollie O'Neal Batson. Mollie is my Great Aunt.

Thanks for taking the photos and placing them on Find A Grave.

Hilliard Terry
Hi Melody,

I found your memorial for Hilliard Terry. You have his middle initials as I.T.; however, I have records showing J.T. Anyway, I'm a descendant of Hilliard Terry and I'm researching this Terry family. His daughter, Susan Virginia Terry, is also my ancestor. She married Samuel M.P. Corder on December 15, 1875 in Coryell County, Texas. Her Find-A-Grave Memorial is # 58859898. She is buried in Hahn Cemetery in Wharton County, Texas with her husband. I added a photo of her to her memorial.

Susan's daughter, Lou, married William Monroe Henderson on October 31, 1890 in Colorado County, Texas. Their first child, Jesse Henderson, is my great-grandfather. Jess's first child, Paul, was my grandfather.

If you have any more information about the Terrys, I would be grateful to correspond with you. My email is
