Bio Photo Here I am ... search'n for grave markers in a remote cemetery & drive'n my ATW (All Terrain Walker)

I have recently passed a photo threshold ... over 1,000 photo requests fulfilled ... an accomplishment of which I am very pleased. Age and the cost of traveling to cemeteries on my 'beat' has slowed me down; but I still get out to make the rounds from time to time ... solely at my pace.

Anyone should feel free to 'grab' the photos of grave markers which I own (& have posted to the Find a Grave memorials) for use in personal family trees or within a venue other than FaG; and, in such event, credit to my ownership, while appreciated, is not necessary. That being said, I do make it a policy NOT to e-mail copies of original images (to which I own proprietary rights) directly to anyone.

Sorry ...

Lula Mae Hughes
Mr. Wilson, thank you for getting back with me. Her Find A Grave Memorial #22080019 is the one that you have listed. The parents that are listed are incorrect for her on your memorial. George W Hughes and Margaret M Petitt are not this Lula Mae Hughes parents.

My Lula Mae Hughes first married James L Goodrum and later married James Nelson Coleman. Her parents were James Mitchell Hughes and Julia Ann Loyd. She died in Dayton, Liberty, TX on March 26, 1948. Her death certificate states that she is the daughter of J M Hughes and Julia Loyd and that she died at the Dayton Hospital.

Thank you for the photo of Mr Willson's tombstone. If you have any documentation on his daughter Arminda, I would be very pleased to receive it. She was my husbands G-G-Grandmother.

That's great. What is the relation between Alma and your great-grandmother? Alma was my great grandmother's sister.

RE: A.J. Hughes
Ha ha...we're doing the same things. I even went through the entire 1870 Hood County Texas census looking for any Hughes/Hughs...since I don't have an 1870 Census record for S.L. Hughes. (Didn't find one, by the way.)
Happy hunting!

RE: A.J. Hughes
Have been in touch with the woman who created the Find A Grave for Samuel Lafayette Hughes. Here is her response:
"My information on his parents came from his Texas death certificate (see attached). I'll be happy to change the listing and list the death certificate information in the notes section. You probably have much more information that points to the correct name of his parents. Always happy to get clarification. I am not family, so have not done further extensive research on him. My listings are definitely "works in progress" and I am always happy for corrections, additions or transfer requests.


I wouldn't suggest any annotation changes until I could be more SURE about this, but...

RE: A.J. Hughes
Yes...another dilemma. The Tennessee reference I assumed was a mistake...William and Jane born in TN. The informant - Isaac Hughes - I can't track. Coincidence of same last name maybe, as opposed to family? But given that Kevin Dolin, who shared info with me, also has a photo of SL which included AJ and ABSOLUTELY positively is Mary (even though Dolin has the wrong maiden name taken from someone else's family tree). But for me, the obit is fact...that it lists S.L. Hughes of Tolar, Texas as a survivor. A family member supplied that info...
Sigh. I wish it could be more straight forward. Have to keep working it out. Of course, will let you know if I find anything relevatory.
