Bio Photo Hi, my name is Suzanne Tarkington.

New Year 2014. We have made a move to Goliad County which is great because that is where my Dad's side of the family is from. So now I will concentrate my searching and photographing in the cemeteries around goliad, vicoria and port lavaca.

I live in Kerens Texas and have ready access to cemeteries in and around Kerens. My closest are Bazette Baptist Church cemetery and Prairie Point cemetery, but I will do my best to get to the cemeteries in Henderson County also.

If you have any requests, please let me know and I will be happy to go and photograph the grave site.

I'm also a genealogy researcher which is how I became interested in Find A Grave. I also do headstone rubbings. This is a great way to preserve stones that are getting weather worn.

I have completed photographing all the headstones (that are readable) at Post Oak Cemetery. There are 3 headstones that I will do rubbings on and will post.I have also completed photographing all the headstones at Oak Grove cemetery in Kerens.

My next project is to photograph all the stones at the Eureka cemetery, Bazette cemetery and Prairie Point cemetery. There are some beautiful stones at all of them that I want to do rubbings on.

I have a book with all the names of the people buried in Bazette and Prairie Point cemeteries. A lot of the names also have family info (ie parents names, children, etc). Please message me via find a grave to be given this information.

I'm a retired nurse so I have 7 days a week to do it. Please allow me the full 14 days to get the photograph taken and up on the memorial page.

If you want to use the images I have photographed, please contact me.

Can you please tell me if this is Senator Winfield Reed? If so, I have a picture of him and one of my Aunt Edna Summerlin when they were dating.

Henry George Johnston #102898506
I am the g.g. grandniece of Henry George Johnston and am requesting the following corrections be made on his Find A Grave memorial page:

1. Under "Family Links, Spouse: Please remove the name "Martha Ann Swilley Johnston 1832-1925. This is his wife Mary Lamanda's sister. She was married to Henry George's brother Robt. B. Johnston.

2. Burial: Please change place of burial to Swilley Family Cemetery, Sumter Co. AL. Henry Geo. did not die in TX although his brother Robt. & his wife Mary Lamanda, who remarried, did and are buried in Eureka Cemetery, TX. This is probably what caused the confusion on Henry George's place of death.

NO burials were made in Eureka Cemetery until 1885.

3. Please remove the Eureka Cemetery photo.

Wouldn't it be clearer to list Mary Lamanda's name as Mary Lamanda Swilley Johnston Swilley since she married Henry George Johnston before she married her cousin Nicholas Swilley?

Please let me know if you would like me to send the names of Henry George Johnston's 4 brothers to add to a "sibling section" on his Find A Grave memorial.

Thanks for your help.

Robby Jene Weatherford (Find A Grave# 102119481) is my cousin, my Uncle John said he is buried in the Bazette cemetery and you have him listed in Prairie Point cemetery. Did you see the records for the cemeteries? I am just wondering. I know those two cemeteries are kind of close together.
We visited there a few years ago, My Uncle said his headstone washed away during a flood sometime back.
Robby was born Sept. 8, 1968 Dallas, Dallas Co. Texas and died in Chandler, Maricopa Co. Arizona. He was killed in a car wreck. I would love to manage Robby's memorial.
Thank you.

If you'd like, you can transfer my great grandfather's memorial over to me. I submitted edits a while back, and the changes haven't been made yet. I'm sure you're really busy!! Thanks much, and for all you do.
