Bio and Links
A lot of work goes into researching a person whether we do this for ourselves or for someone else. At times we all could be looking up several people to get to that one we are looking for. With that being said, we all are capable of making mistakes. So, for all those of you that want to send me or anyone else an ugly email, stop, take a deep breath and re-read what I have written.

If by chance I have made a mistake, please let me know. I will be more than happy to change the data. As Billy Joel would say "We're only human, we're suppose to make mistakes".

If I have someone that is related to you, I will be more than happy to transfer as long as I am not related to that person.

Please note: The photos uploaded to Find A Grave are meant for cemetery documentation and for personal family genealogical use. They may NOT be used on any other Internet Sites including

Also, I would very much like to thank all the photo takers of all the headstones. Without you all, there would be many questions. So THANK YOU ALL!

Ulysses S. Parris # 160796658
I wonder if you could transfer my dad's memorial to me and let me manage it (Ulysses Simpson Parris # 160796658). I have added his parents, my grandparents, Elias James Parris and Frances Emma York, and would like to link them to him. Also if I could get my mother's, his wife, Jessie Lee Parris, transferred to me as well, that would be great. Thank you so much!

Alexander, Joseph Calvin, Jr
Joseph Calvin Alexander, Jr. was married to Georgia Pearl Davidson on May 12, 1923 in Newton Co., MS. I am not sure of her place of burial but have seen it documented in the history of the Alexander family publication that she was buried at Providence Baptist Church Cemetery, Lauderdale Co., MS. He was my husband's great uncle. Hope this is helpful to your post on Joseph Calvin Alexander, Jr, Memorial #102908703,

Wylie Ray Newman # 144033992
Wylie's Texas Death Certificate, #63243, does show he is buried in the Restland Memorial Park. 28 Jun 1982 is the date shown for his burial. Iris Lynne Newman (his spouse) was the informant for his information on the document. Date of birth is given as 26 Jul 1910, and he was 71 years of age.

RE: Chester Eugene Thompson
Chester is buried next to Myrtle Frances Thompson dob December 25, 1892. There wasn't a date of death so I didn't post the photo of her marker.

Teresa: I just submitted a corrected edit of parents of Lydia Tubb Moore.

Her father was indeed a George Moore, just not the one previously linked to.

Best wishes

Parents of Lydia Tubbs Moore
Debbie Upshaw is a direct descendant of George Tubb and Mary Turner. I am a descendant of his sister Karenhappuck, we have extensive records on the Tubb family, and there are other genealogical sites which mention his family, none of them have a Lydia TubbS, or Lydia Tubb as a child, neither do I or Debbie.

I suggested removal of the parents of Lydia Tubbs. The names Tubb and Tubbs are not coequal or variations of the same. They are distinct lineages. In fact Tubb or Tubbs and Tubbee are quite common amongst the Choctaw as it is a title, which was adopted as a surname by the Choctaw.

Files Valley Cemetery
You are receiving this note because you are a FindAGrave Contributor with ties to the Files Valley Cemetery near Itasca, TX. By ties, I mean that you created memorials, maintain memorials, added photos and/or notes to memorials in that cemetery. After reading below, if you do not wish to remain on this list, please reply to, asking to be removed and it will be done immediately. Currently there are 84 Contributors on the list.

I was raised in the small community 5 mi. east of Itasca called Files Valley.
I attended elementary school there through 1952 and my parents ran the grocery store. There are still folks living there but the main thing still there is the Files Valley Cemetery.

Recently, two events occurred that that have a significant impact on the future of the cemetery.
1) The loss of Kenneth Stufflebeme, the long time Trustee of the Trust fund set up before 1992 by my Dad (Robert McEver), Aunt (Annie Mae McEver McMillan), Joe Price and others.
2) The bridge across the creek to the cemetery was washed away during recent flooding of the Files Valley Creek. There is currently no access to the cemetery for visiting or mowing, etc.

I wish to express my deepest sympathies to Kenneth’s wife Edwina along with sons Mike & Jim. The loss of Kenneth’s role with the cemetery, while significant, is nothing compared to the family’s loss.

Living in Houston makes it difficult for me to evaluate what options exist for dealing with these issues. I do know that there are some actions already underway to address problems. I have the name of another Trustee but I have been unable to locate contact info. I also understand that another Files Valley resident, Mark Wood, is working on getting a bridge across the creek in another location that would provide access to the cemetery. The Hill County Commissioner for that precinct has confirmed that, because the cemetery and access road is on private property, the County will not provide any funds for reestablishing access. The Files Valley Cemetery Trust Fund along with other private parties with interest in preserving the cemetery may have to provide funding. Any payment out of the Trust Fund will jeopardize the ability to continue maintenance, mowing, etc.

If you or anyone you know has information that would help us in sorting out these issues, please email me at or call 713-252-7222.

As my profile indicates, I, along with others on this list, have a detailed knowledge of this cemetery. Out of the 426 memorials currently noted, there are 24 memorials with no markers. I am very confident that all of the markers there have been photographed meaning that there are 24 unmarked graves or some memorials have been placed in the wrong cemetery. If you maintain a memorial without a tombstone icon, especially if the memorial has been added in the last few years, please check your source info to confirm that you have the correct cemetery.

Finally, I have a plot map created from Google image. It cannot be posted on the FindAGrave site because of copyright issues but it does have useful detail. I will provide it for your personal use if you provide me with your email address.

Thank you for reading this lengthy note. There is much going on.
