Regarding your message to me that I had created a duplicate: My memorial was created after the individual's death, not 12 years before.

RE: Howard Lang Cooksey, Jr.
Yes, I know I am a descendant. My daddy (Howard, Jr.) used to tell me "You take after the Hightowers, short and stout." How far back have you gotten on the Hightowers? I thought much of their genealogy has been documented. Thanks, by the way, for transferring my father and grandfather's sites to me. I have pictures I want to post. I also want to see how I can add two more siblings (Margaret and Lillian) to the group. Best wishes, and thanks again.

Perkins Barter
I will check the lot I photographed a while back of a Perkins couple & a Tom Dukes in Cairo Cemetery. The latest guide here was published in 2011 -- too early for a 2013 grave. I found her spouse (maybe) on this site in Deland, Volusia County. Florida where an obituary said she spent her last 20 years. It is Memorial# 75087043. She might be there, but not listed yet. I'll physically check Cairo Cemetery. There are no Barters "listed" in Grady County, though, to my knowledge.

RE: Aubrey Chester Tune

I heard back from the person in Dawson County & yes Aubrey Chester Tune is buried next to his wife Terrye in the Lamesa Memorial Park Cemetery.

I have added his memorial, Find A Grave Memorial# 176674424, & linked it to his wife & have submitte edits for his children who have memorials.

Also the person who found him took a photo of Aubrey's & Terrye's shared gravestone & will send it to me. Once received, I will post it to the site.

I also submitted an edit for Terrye's plot location.

Got lucky!

RE: Aubrey Tune

I just got off the phone with a woman in Dawson County, Texas. The county has taken over the cemetery & she was actually going out to Lamesa Memorial Park today to do some work.

She will check their records & see if Aubrey C. Tune was buried there & get back to me.

Maybe we'll get lucky.

RE: Aubrey Tune
Hi Tony,

No, I don't know where he is buried. Some family databases show his death as 17 July 1937 in Dawson County & the last time I see him on the census is 1930 in said county. But I found no Texas Death record for him.

I had tried calling the phone number for the Lamesa Memorial Park for info, thinking he was likely buried next to his wife Terrye, Find A Grave Memorial# 32109865, but that number is no longer good. I also have not seen him listed on the Dawson County Texas GenWeb pages.

So, I googled the cemetery & the same number came up but also articles about the co-owners back in the fall of last year being arrested.

I think perhaps contacting the Lamesa Chamber of Commerce might be a start & there's the City of Lamesa website at

I'll do what I can from this end, but am not in the state of Texas.

If you locate anything, would you please let me know here.

My research has pointed to Newett Hays/Hayes (Find A Grave Memorial# 115277260) being the son of Caroline Maupins Hays (Find A Grave Memorial# 36343985) and William Hays (Find A Grave Memorial# 36343941). But I have no documentation at present.
Are you related, and might you know of any documentation?
Thank you for these memorials.

Lucinda Jones Tucker

Do you know if this subject had Indian blood?
Creek, Choctaw & Freedmen rolls?

She is sister to my Great Grandmother Rebecca Ann Jones Parnell.

I found one source which states that Lucinda Jones Tucker was one/half Cherokee, and ? Choctaw, and ? Creek and ? Freedman Rolls.

Any info you might offer would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

I inherited this memorial along with a LOT of others from my cousin mid 2016. This information was likely added before that. I know that I am receiving suggested corrections of over 100 a day on the memorials I have inherited. I would be delighted to make any corrections that our needed. I will do a little research to see if I can locate the first wife.

Tony, you rock!
Thank you so much for transferring my great-great grandfather, Richard Davison Winters, to me! As far as his son, my great grandfather, Richard Davidson Winters. I don't want to go in the dog house... or is it the penalty box .. if I ask for a transfer of him ..but I'd like to submit a small bio for him somehow. Happy 2017! We must be related somehow? Alaska-bear hugs.. xoxo!!! ~~Sherry Winters

He was my husband's uncle. I think I vaguely remember visiting the grave with him. Could you be referring to a different Herbert?
