Bio and Links
I am a Texas German all the way. My maternal and paternal ancestors immigrated to Texas from the various old German Confederation states in the 1840s and 1850s.


Although I am here because of genealogy I know and understand that Find A Grave is a grave registration website.

If it were not for the gravers and photographers using their time, money, and gas to wander cemeteries and fend off mud, snow, dirt, bugs, snakes, weeds, poison ivy and who knows what else....then us genealogists would not have this great resource to use for our genealogy.

If I had a hat or wore a hat then I would tip my hat to the gravers and grave photographers out there. I, for one, am grateful for all that you do.


Find A Grave likes:

People out wandering cemeteries and taking photos of the markers.

People who are careful, conscientious researchers. It's called Find a Grave not Find a Dead Person.

Super nice people. There are lots of them here.

Find A Grave dislikes:

People who disregard the site's rules and/or make up their own rules.

People who make up their own purpose or reason for Find A Grave.

Unfortunately, there are some on here. Have you read the FAQs? If not, maybe you're one of them.

Nettie Braun Morrow
Hi Jo Ann,

I've looked again through my photos and at the history committee's cemetery inscription pages just in case some how Nettie Braun Morrow's stone was overlooked and not added to Find A Grave but no luck.

About three years ago I was given permission to go through the church's official record book (THE red book!). I made memorials for anyone who didn't already have one which included members buried in other cemeteries. I've double checked my records there too and cannot find Nettie.

It is certainly possible that she was not a Zion church member (not in the red book). People in the community also used/use these cemeteries. The church does have records of these burials as well but I have not seen them. I think I'd be allowed but I'm not sure when I'll get the chance. I'll save your email in hopes of getting back to you on this.

When I can, I'll go back through all of the Braun obituaries (not everyone is included though) and see if anyone mentions a daughter or sister named Nettie - maybe give us some clues if we knew more family. I wonder if Nettie is a nickname?

I can tell you that I found the following but I'm not sure there is any relationship to this family at all:
a Herbert Eugene Allen (#25604319) in Fort Sam cemetery but it gives his wife as Mary F Allen
Edgar F & Thekla M Moeller in Zion #1 - possibly parents of Herbert George Moeller???
Elsie Moeller (1904-1906) in Zion #1 - possibly a sibling or cousin of Nettie's??? according to 1930 census records Nettie was 26 in 1930 (born about 1904)

Greetings,

Find A Grave contributor JoAnnRMC has made a suggestion to you regarding your Find A Grave memorial for Flossie Allen.
Link to memorial: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=76053462
Link to contributor profile: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=mr&MRid=47201216

Their suggestion:
-------------------------
Hi Laura

Flossie was married to Herbert Eugene Allen on February 16, 1946 in Bexar County, Texas. She is the daughter of Herbert George Moeller and Nettie Braun.

Her parents divorced. Her father and brother are buried at San Jose. Her mom married Morris Morrow and he is buried at Mission Burial Park South. Her mom died in 1997. Do you know of any graves at Zion that do not have markers? I was sorta thinking that Flossie's mom is buried there since she is a Braun and Flossie has a pre-need marker there.

Thanks for the transfer earlier.
Cheers!
Jo Ann

Henry/Margaret Huck edits
Hi, J A
About 6 months ago I received edits from another contributor covering the additional dates, place of birth and death which conflicts with your information. There is another group of Hucks which are buried in the Greenwood Cemetery here, also listed as being from Austin. Because of the links, they appear to be in the same family. Further investigation may be required before another edit can be put into play.

I'll be transferring Alex Weidner to you this evening. As for duplicates - I think when the original creator became inactive several years ago people created new/duplicate memorials in order to leave more details or make corrections. There are a lot of duplicates in these 2 cemeteries.

As for adding obituaries - my understanding is that we are not to add photos of obits in the photo section but excerpts can be left in the body of the memorial giving credit to the source.

I am sending in edit requests as I find information so hopefully these cemeteries will be fairly complete one day.

Thanks,
Laura V

RE: Bexar Cemetery
I was add them from and old Bexar Cemetery records but it turns they those People were not buried there they all just died there in Bexar, Tx...i have not had time to correct them. And the reason why there is so duplicates is people who enter them before me do put either the full name or the misspell the name. But dont mind taken my down if they did one before me...but i will not if i did it first.
