Bio and Links
For 25+ years, I have been researching several families, many of whom lived in the Central and South Texas. I have been a Find-A-Grave contributor for more than 7 years, despite what it shows above.

I will be more than glad to add info, obits, bios or do corrections to any memorial I create, or manage. In some cases, I am willing to transfer beyond the Find A Grave guidelines. When requesting a transfer (no group transfers, please), be sure to state your relationship to the individual.

********Please NOTE*********
To avoid confusion, and save everyone time and mistakes, please use the EDIT tab on the Memorial, in question, as I will only make Transfers, edits or family links when I receive a request using the EDIT tab. Please only use the "message board" for "general messages" which do not refer to a specific Memorial.


It is good practice to always do a thorough search for duplicates, not just in a specific cemetery, before entering any memorial.

I will never intentionally create a invalid duplicate.
I will never be intentionally rude to anyone and always endeavor to live by "The Golden Rule."


A special note about the Abilene State School Cemetery:

First of all, I will be more than happy to add bios and link to family members and would love to see these memorials managed by family.

Find A Grave contributor "HuntCoTX" did a great job adding most of those buried there. "HuntCoTX" went inactive and I did not request but was given all the Abilene State School Cemetery records.

A little history: The epileptic colony was built on a 640-acre tract of donated land during 1902 and 1904. Brick buildings were constructed on forty acres which constituted the colony proper. Of the remaining 600 acres, 400 were under cultivation and 200 were in pasture (for the use of the colony). As you might have gathered, the Colony was designed and built be be a totally self-contained community.

The colony admitted its first patients on March 26, 1904. The state provided free treatment for indigent patients; others paid five dollars a week. This facility has gone through several name changes during its 110+ years of existence.

D.S. Logan, Jr.
Dear Sir: Just a note to let you know: D.S. Logan, Jr. never had more than initials. His mother intended to name him for his father, Daye Stevenson Logan; however she decided that since they were going to call him D.S. that was what would be on the birth certificate and would be his actual name.

RE: Grave memorial for Tommie Linville.
Find A Grave transferred to duplicate memorial to me since the original creator is ill and cannot do anything. It is up to you whether you want to transfer the one you created. If you would prefer to manage it, you may. I have to delete one that someone else created. I thought about seeing if Find A Grave would join them. But, like I said, it is totally up to you. If you would rather keep it, I can give you additional information to include. Just let me know.
