Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have one gripe for a few FG volunteers: I pay extreme attention to mistakes, duplicates, memorials in the wrong cemetery here in Bosque County. Those of you out there who refuse my request are not interested in keeping FG accurate - either you are in it for the numbers are just plain do not care! You tell me this by having NO way to contact you; or refuse to respond when you get a SAC. You know who you are and shame on you!

I am getting quite a few messages for simple name, spouse, date changes. PLEASE, PLEASE use the "new" edit offerings on each memorial under the edit tab. Saves us both time, and eliminates mistakes. And, always check the little box that gives you a copy of what you sent as an edit. Thanks.

Please, please always check to see if there are memorials already entered BEFORE you enter a new memorial. FG and we here in Bosque County do not like duplicates, and nearly always ask that the earliest memorial stand. PLEASE do not post death certificates! If there is a good reason to state an unusual death, send a notice and I will post it.

I am a native Central Texan, presently living in Bosque County and a past member of the Bosque County Historical Commission and a charter member of the BC Genealogical Society.

If you find a mistake, PLEASE let me know, and remember I am maintaining many memorials that were made by others and the mistakes may be theirs. Be nice when you ask for a change! I do not mind transferring if a memorial is a relative, OR if a memorial is in another county, but otherwise, I would prefer not to. However, I inherited many memorials from some retirees, and on other cemeteries, other than Bosque County, I would certainly transfer.

I just recently finished two genealogies for Poston and Birdwell. FindaGrave information has been priceless! Thanks to all who have contributed. Let me retract that word "finished." We will never be finished but there does come a time when we have to turn it over to someone else. :)

T.J. Thurmond
Hi Abby. Some added info for you on T.J.(Thomas Jefferson) and Ida Thurmond buried in Valley Mills Cemetery. They had several children including Pearl buried next to them and Thomas Jefferson Thurmond, 1898-1962 buried in Crawford Cemetery, Crawford. T.J and Ida Thurmond were my great grandparents, Pearl Thurmond...my great aunt. Their son, also Thomas J. Thurmond, buried in Crawford, was my grandfather. My father, also Thomas Jefferson Thurmond (May 18, 1926-July 13, 1969, is also buried in Crawford Cemetery. Thanks much for your update for your records. Best, Mark Mattlage Thurmond.

Abby,
I tried sending this to your email address, but my message was returned as being unable to send.

Thanks for getting in touch. I see that multiple Ancestry members have shown John with an H. for his middle name - probably where I found it. I have been searching, to no avail, to find this in a document. Have checked all of his children's death records that I could find, but couldn't find that illusive "H." In light of this I have deleted the H from his name on his memorial. However, it may be that this has been passed down through some member of the family.
