Bio and Links
I have a strong interest in family research/genealogy. I enjoy walking through cemeteries and am happy to help others document a part of their ancestry. Thanks goes to my husband, who takes some photos and drives me to the locations.

You are all very welcome. I thank you all for your notes of appreciation. It helps when one is tramping around looking for stones in the West Texas wind and sun. :)

Thanks for the reply,
I upload the photos to both the sites at the same time.
So important to archive these precious records, at the same time of helping researchers find their ancestors.

Hi: Jan, I received this message on Reported by: Jan Hobbs on Oct 13, 2013. General problem:I searched the stated plot or section and could not find the grave Details: We walked the entire B-5 section that Mr. Thornton was supposedly buried in and could find no evidence of a headstone for him. Sorry.
