Bio Photo Hello everyone,

I am Cora Lee Reeves and I am researching the Reeves, Girard, Edmonds and Joplin family lines on my tree. All info you would like to share is very welcome.

I am proud to say I have finished documenting the Dalhart Cemetery. I asked City Hall for the records of all the graves they have on file which runs from as far back as the records go to 10-2012. For records more current you can call City Hall or go to the website and find who you are looking for there. Please feel free to ask me to transfer memorial pages if you are a relative. Please let me know of any corrections to be made or information you would like to add. If you have a loved one you think is buried in Dalhart before 1932 and I haven't made a memorial page for them, it is probably due to the court house burning to the ground in 1932 and all records were lost. If they were buried after that date I may have skipped a name or lost the name in transition. You can contact the Dalhart City Hall to double check and also the court house may have a record.

Dalhart sits on the county line between Dallam and Hartley counties and there are many towns and communities in each county. This is due mostly because of the rail road. The train had to stop every ten miles so small communities formed every ten miles as the trains went farther some of the communities died out. For the most part the graveyards in these areas were family graves yard and are now on private land and/or lost. Some remain but have not been maintained and markers have been lost.

Many who have Dalhart as the burial place where somewhere in those areas. Texline, Hartley, and Channing have cemeteries still standing and in use that are confused with Dalhart as well. My goal in doing this is to make a town "family" tree by connecting the people buried in the graveyard to their families as well as connect the roots to where they came from and went too if/where possible.

I know there are doubles of some memorial pages so if you find them please let me know using the memorial page suggestion link so that I can delete the doubles. If they are not side by side I may not realize they are doubled. Thank you for all the help and support you have shown to me and this project. I hope I help others the way they have helped me in my research.

RE: Thank you for sponsoring a memorial page
My ID# is 47016985. Sorry to take so long to reply to your message. I think this is in regard to Martha Lou Hine. I tried to follow your instructions to request transfer, but I could not locate on the memorial page. I'm still learning the ropes!!

Are you by any chance related to the above? I am looking for his son, Ray Dell Fowler, who was killed in service in Austria.

Thank you!

RE: Thelma Reeves
As long as you re not looking at someone's tree, and the data is census, or birth, or death records it is reliable. Someone's tree is not very reliable I've found, especially the older ones. and Family Tree Maker are the best way to go.

Did you ever think she may have been married one than one time. The Brown could have been her first husband.

RE: Double Florance.
Hi, find a grave has an original search page you can use either by the person's name, with state and then county, or you can search by cemetery name. Just match close names and dates, works best for me. :)

RE: Transferring the two Wards in Nara visa
I am glad to transfer Wanda Gene and George Alfred Ward to you to maintain. They should be in your name now. No one can take care of the memorials like a family member or very close friend.

Enjoy sharing their lives with others in your family, now and to come. Happy Hunting!
