Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired Military. Started working on my Ancestors after my wife died and found a lot of the graves in our cemetery were not listed on FINDAGRAVE. I was born and raised in Dallas, West Oak Cliff to be percise, attended Sunset High School and then joined the Army. Retired in 1979 and worked for the VA for 28 yrs. Now retired for good and enjoying it.

I will help anyone find a grave or headstone in either the Mount Olive Cememtery (used to be Big Spring Cemetery) or Trinity Memorial Park, in Big Spring, Tx.


If you find any errors in my Memorials please let me know so I can correct them.

Thanks for adding Ethel Ellen Smith's memorial to find a grave.

I found her son (my 3rd cousin) online this past week and finally have the information to link her to her parents, plus, he gave me the information for both of his parents. I sent you some edits through the edit tabs.

Thanks again for adding memorials of my kin!

Good Morning Mr Bob

Ive been updating a lot of sites with information from Texas Death certificates. I'm primarily updating, Big springs cemeteries, I.e. Trinity, Mount Olive, Big Spring state Hospital. I also update a few rare ones I find, some out of state, some donations to science and such. I trying to update some of the details, birth/death dates (locations) Maiden names. If I can find the family links, I also send updates for that. Looks like I have over 500 pending updates (not all yours :)

Just wanted to give you a heads up on where I am getting the Volumes of information from.

Happy Hunting

Clark County, KY
I happen to pass the cemetary to see what the name was so I could help with pics of the tombstone if needed. I noticed on one of the oldest tombstone the person was a Daniel and originated from Clark County, KY the same place my GGgrandfather was born. My information said either Clark or Boone County, KY. The surname was Harris and I was wondering what document(s) you might have used to locate the Daniels in Clark County, KY. You put in your profile that you attended Sunset and was originally from OaK Cliff. I attended and graduated from South Oak Cliff and have been looking for my family for 30 years. I remain in Oak Cliff to this day. Would appreciate any suggestions you might be able to recommend.
