Bio and Links
I have been doing ancestral research for about 40 years. By being involved in searching records and information, I have made many new friends (fellow researchers) and met family members who have become personal friends. This is a great (and addictive) hobby that has opened the lives of my antecedents and their migration across North America from the European Continent for me. Just finding names is not the goal for me. I want to know how they made their living, what the times were like, and just get to know the individuals as personally as I can. By combining history, country, and economics, it is easier to create an interesting even though incomplete tapestry of the journey of one's life. Sometimes I only have a name, but I never stop seeking a clue here and there. Sometimes my efforts are rewarded but more often, the secrets are still floating in the hazy gauze of time.

I am a retired executive and newspaper correspondent retiring from director of a senior citizens center. I retired from the American Red Cross working in health, safety, service to military families, and disaster as volunteer, paid staff, instructor and instructor trainer.

The pictures that I take for Find A Grave may be used in your research and transferred at will. I hope that they help you in your endeavors.

Most all photos I take in Englewood Cemetery in Slaton, Texas will have life dates, burial date, and location of grave if you click on the pictures.

Dear Sue - Many thanks for the gravestone photos for the Porters. I only met them once visiting my Grannie Mills. Clarence's sister Stella Porter Redmon was next-door neighbors to Mrs. Mills. I knew that I would not be able to travel back to the Panhandle South Plains and so I made the request.
Find-a-Gravers have always been most courteous and usually quick to respond. There are few left in the scattered Redmon Family but your help is much appreciated.

I will change it to an E and just put a note that it might be a B.

I really feel like when I was at the cemetery it was a B rather than an E.
Have you been there? If so I will take your word for it and change the B to an E.
