Since I have no relatives buried in Texas, I will transfer any memorials that are your relatives or friends to you. Just click on EDIT in the upper righthand corner of the memorial, select the first line in the menu and request the transfer. Be sure to include your ID number.

I wish to thank all those who have pointed out my errors so they could be corrected and who have provided additional information for the bio, such as obituaries.

Tumlinson Memorial Transfers
First thing I want to do is THANK YOU for your service to our Country. Welcome Home.

On the Edit Button the first line is birth and deaths. I see nothing about Transfers, but since I am not really computer wise I don't do anything that may cause me to lose my 44,000 names in my FTM.

There are 11 Tumlinson Memorials I am asking for in the Liberty Hill Cemetery, Williamson Co. TX

If you can't Transfer them, I will understand. They are all my family. Thank you very much for the Memorials you created for them.

Information on Robert Isham Kellar
Hi, my name is Ronald Rj Yarbrough andI am a direct acendent of Robert Kellar married to Louisa Jane Winifred Hobbs, they were my gx2 grandparents. I have been searching for more info on my gx2 grandparents and saw you found his grave at Gravel Hill Cemetery, between Jarrell,Tx and Florence, Tx,.
I wass wondering if you had any other information on him, I have been searching all year and havent found my g at all except his marriage to my Gx2 grandmother whom I have info on. He seems to be a mystery. He died at age 36 but cant find how he died so young or anyother info about him except his children,Mary Kellar Yarbrough and Ethel Kellar Mantooth and of course his wife my gx2. If you have any info on how he died, his parents, his birth and/or pictures, etc I would greatly appreciate it. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK finding him. Curious how you are related to him as well,
Please email me at or call, text at 432 978 1942

Lafayette Locke
I have added the picture to your cemetery page. Lafayette is not a relative of mine. I added him for a local Civil War group project in Modesto, CA. I really don't need to have you transfer this to me.

I am searching for John's second wife: Emma J. Comparet. She does not list as being buried with John. Her parents are buried in Blanco, Tx where she & John were married.

The date of death on your written info is May 25, 1960, but the stone says May 26, 1960. Do you have additional information to support the May 25th.

Thanks, Marty
