RE: Young and Welch of Palestine
Wolf Creek Lake is the only thing I am familiar with that has that name. It is west of Palestine. I don't know any cemeteries in the area. Contact Tony Rohne at and I am certain he can help you find it.

RE: W H Franks & Henry Franks
Thanks Brenda

I am hoping that Weldon Burke night be able to help me locate some of these lost graves of the Franks and others. He is in his 90s and has large hand drawn maps of pilgrim and all the graves. I have got it down to only about 32 graves that are on find a grave but can not be found. out of 1200 graves dating back to 1840s i guess that nots bad most of the missing ones are from the 1800s and just are not marked most likely.

If you ever get up to pilgrim let me know I live in Palestine area but we still own our family ranch just a couple of miles from Pilgrim and I am at Pilgrim Frequestly I know it as well as anyone except for Weldon. Thanks for your help

RE: Earl Irvin
I added another picture of him. He had a tendency to add and loose weight. In the one you posted, he was much slimmer. The little girl is me, so taken around 1953.
He was born in Goree, Knox County, TX. I think Beaulah may have been born in TX? And all kids after her.
I think I met your mom once. I have Sharon (Weeksie's daughter) on Face Book.

Earl Irvin
He was my dad - my mom passed away in 2012. I am the little girl he is holding in the picture.
How are you related?

Bob & Bonnie McEver
Files Valley Cemetery
This relates to the status of the cemetery in Files Valley, TX. In the 1970s, a board was established to oversee maintenance of the cemetery. All of the board members are now deceased. In order to insure some level of maintenance going forward, a new board should be established. A meeting seems necessary to reestablish the board and the first group to make contact with, before going to the general population of the community, in my opinion, should be those FindAGrave Contributors who have shown an interest and demonstrated some effort to preserve the memory of those interred there. If you have experience in managing small cemeteries and/or the interest to participate in this process, please contact me via email at

Regards and thanks for all your work for FindAGrave.

RE: Clara Franks Chandler
I don't know of any Chandlers buried in Pilgrim but there is a marker for "Clara", no surname and no dates, but her marker is between Joe Franks and "Bill" whose marker also has no surname or dates.

RE: Henry Cleburne Franks
Hello, Brenda. Find A Grave does not approve of duplicate memorials but duplicates happen for many reasons. Mine was the first memorial created as you can see by the date at the bottom of the page so therefore is not a duplicate. If Nancy and Michael don't want to delete theirs, feel free to ask Fend A Grave to combine them.

I did ask Michael to enter the article for Cleburne Franks.
Hopefully he will do so.

RE: Henry Cleburne Franks
Now are you talking about old Henry Franks born in 1883 or so. Buried at Pilgrim. H. Cleburne was his son. Did you give me a number on the original Henry.
