Bio and Links

I'm Joel Hart and I live in Lubbock, Texas.

Ten years ago, my daughter got me interested in genealogy while looking through our family album that my grandmother assembled and asking, "Who are these people and where did they live?" Suddenly, all the stories my grandmother told me came to life and I started to put the puzzle together because I realized there was no one else left to pass on the stories.

My wife's family has hosted John Jay Phillips Family Reunions annually for over 45 years. Her aunt and cousin have researched the family's history and genealogy and we continue to contribute to this legacy.

We take pictures on a regular basis, especially at Lubbock, Stanton and Big Spring, Texas.
Dozens of people have helped us over the years in finding our "lost ones" and enabling us to continue their story for the next generation.

I will gladly take PHOTOS you request at RESTHAVEN MEMORIAL PARK in Lubbock, provided you help me with some information.

Resthaven has a great Family Services department and they will gladly go and look on their computer to see if a loved one is interred there and if there is date when a marker was installed; that is about the only information they have. With over two-dozen sections and 23,000 interments, it is almost an impossible task, if you don't know which section your loved one occupies.

The Family Services department is wonderful and is hosted by the sales-staff, who do double-duty. If you can call the office at 806-791-6200, and ask them for the section location and if there is a marker and send me that information to:

I would be glad to assist you and be able to find your loved one's marker anytime of the day, even when the office is not open.

Wendall Lee Gordon
Hello Joel, On Wendall's memorial # 98193936 you added a death notice under his picture section. I added it to his bio and gave you credit for it. Could you please delete the notice that you added in the picture section ? If family decides to add photo's,the notice would short them one,and your the only one to delete since you added it.I appreciate the info and will gladly add any info to any memorial I have that you might find.

Thank you,

RE: Verna Edmison # 63461160
Hi Joel,

I don't control Jerrel's memorial but I submitted an edit so that he can be removed as her husband.

Also, in hunting around I see that Robert E Edmison's memorial was entered twice. Please check.

Thanks for writing,

Thank you for bringing the duplicate relationship. I corrected the error. If you are related, let me know because I am not.
