|Bio and Links|
I was born in Fort Worth, Texas and grew up attending family reunions and learning about family history through two great aunts who gave me a love of family history and an interest in learning more.|
With an elementary education degree from East Texas State University in Commerce, Texas I taught in the public schools for 27 years.
With over 40 years of experience researching family history I have taught Genealogy at Tarrant County College and have spoken at many genealogical societies. In 2006 I was the Conference Chair for the Texas State Genealogical Society Conference in Fort Worth. In 2012 I was the Vendor/Venue Chair for the conference, again in Fort Worth.
I am President of Historic W.V.S. Allen Cemetery Association. Our cemetery was declared a Texas Historic Cemetery in May of 2001.

No problem. I enjoyed looking. I was able to correct one big error in the cemetery. Listed under Wash Moore Cemetery (not yet merged with Moore Cemetery) there was a Jesse C. Moore. After doing some research I discovered that is now who it is. The stone simply says J. C. Moore. The dates were for James C Moore, brother of Jesse M. Moore. I have made the correction. I also added George Washington Moore, Jr. to Moore Cemetery.

Please send an email for me to attach several pics of the cemetery area for the Spences.

Oh, sorry about that thought I had the right Allen Cemetery Association. Very hard to find.
Thanks for the info.

I have a death certification for Jesse T Holland 7-9-1867 to 3-9-1930, it states he was buried in Allen, TX by undertaker S S Harris. His wife remarried Burrow Jeanes and is buried in Allen Cemetery: Sallie Clay (Pearson) Holland-Jeanes. I believe Jesse is buried in Allen Cemetery too but I need confirmation since the death cert doesn't absolutely say. Also do you have a site with gravestones already?
If you could confirm he is there or lead me to a website that will, I would appreciate it and I could add him to find a grave.

There are no markers for these graves. Family members related that they remembered the locations of the graves. They were marked by wooden crosses when the Corley Family purchased the land surrounding the cemetery and have since decayed. I went to the cemetery when our Historical Society surveyed all county cemeteries for our book. Only graves of the Corley family were marked at that time and they pointed to an area in the cemetery that they remembered the crosses years ago. The location of the cemetery can be seen from the road and is a group of trees about 1/4 mile from the roadside.
I can email you a pic of the trees and I think I have a pic of the area that they indicated they remembered where the Spences where buried if you like. Please forward and email.
I am also compiling a book on the Spence community (named for this family) - its history, people and the area. Would love any info that you can share of the family. My email - dcpowell54 @gmail.com

Saw your comment that his first wife Donnie was your relative. His second wife Alynne Morrow was my aunt. I am interested if you have any info on Alynne.

I noticed that Little Joe, Edna's spouse, didn't have a memorial. So I went ahead and made one and transferred the mgmt of it over to you. Their son of Joe Monroe is also buried there, and his memorial has already been created.
I hope you have a blessed and wonderful day.
