My Father and grandfather were undertakers, so I guess it's in my blood to be drawn to cemeteries. I think they are beautiful and peaceful, yet often sad. So many died so young. So many babies and young mothers. The old stones are often beautiful and personal works of art. There are often puzzles and riddles in the placement of family graves that once meant everything to someone. The messages on the older stones are fading and FindaGrave is saving images of them forever. I love that. Also, families long separated by time and distance can be linked together as one once again. I love that too. The cemetery is one of the only places you can go and nothing has changed for a hundred years or more. This is the spot where that dear and loved person was laid to rest and their loved ones stood there on that spot and mourned them. The ground is sacred with centuries of tears. I feel a connection to them there, and there only. There are so many nameless and unmarked graves with only rough stones or not even that. Once, loved ones who knew they were there, came and laid flowers there year after year, but when they too passed on, the memory of who was buried there was forgotten. That's sad because they deserve to be remembered just as much as the one next to them who had a stone. Who were they? I want to capture images of as many of the old stones as possible before time and weather destroys them further. It is the most untouched and enduring monument that we have, erected to our history and the journey that was traveled in the past in that place.|

|Art Dube||Information on Alonzo J Morgan|
Greetings. Alonzo J Morgan is my great grandfather. I have been searching for his parents for quite sometime now and I note below that you show his parents as William Dinsmore Morgan (father) and mother as Lodema Morgan. I would very much like to know how you came to that conclusion. Please respond to me via my email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you. Art Dube

Thanks for the Freddie Hall photo. Much appreciated.
|PhilG||RE: Carthage TX Ramsey|
Yes, I've noticed the infant's grave but don't know what to make of it. James M. And Emily's oldest son was named Richard--so it seems odd there would have been a second child named Richard. If you see any interesting Ramsey stones in Panola County, please let me know. Thanks for your message.

|Barbara Biggs Renfro||RE: James Hillary Biggs|
Thanks for your reply. I believe Mouzon Biggs is my 1st cousin 2 x's removed. His grandfather, John Wesley Biggs, is "I believe" my 2nd great-grandfather. Just trying to document that James Hilary Biggs is John Wesley's son. Any ideas, I am open to suggestions!!
|Barbara Biggs Renfro||James Hillary Biggs|
Hello. James Hillary Biggs, Find A Grave#119072900, Harris Chapel Cemetery, Carthage, Panola, TX, is my paternal great-grandfather. Thank you for posting the picture of the headstone. I am at the brick wall for his parents. I think they are John Wesley Biggs and Mary Maddux. Do you know any other information regarding James Hillary Biggs (wife: Sarah Maize DuPriest). Thanks!
|D. D. Thompson||RE: Dickerson - Jackson Cemetery|
Sorry, that was 8 months ago. I'm sure I had a great reason for my message to you, but I've long since moved onto other pursuits. I do see that the Delaware-buried Dickerson has a lot of very specific information on his memorial. If the "Texas Dickerson's" information is different, then it sounds like two separate people and you could just create a new memorial for the one in Texas. However, the likelihood of two William P. Dickersons with the exact same birth/death info is pretty remote, so if that's the situation, I'd consider whether there is an error in the information. In any case, I've moved on. Good luck in your pursuit of information.
