Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a man who loves history and in my time have seen some very old tombstones in my travels and when researching my family history. There have been some interesting finds in my time. I am a writer and poet and I plan on designing my own monument to leave my mark upon the world when I die. I have found many old markers in Texas and Iowa in the northern part of the state and Minnesota. Having an interest in the funeral industry I am always researching cemeteries. It was because of my Grandpa that I have such a love for history. Recently while visiting a cemtery in Falls County, TX I discovered about twenty tombstones that were inscribed in German. This was the first time I have ever seen any markers written in another language. As far as the future, who knows where my travels may take me. God is my guide and it certianly will be an adventure! Every one has a right to be remembered. I am a voice for those who do not have anyone to do this for them. I do not only my family and friends but I often walk local cemeteries and add information online to aid researchers in their family history research. If I have made a mistake or if you have something for me to add please get in touch with me and I will take the appropriate action. I am willing to do photo lookups in Lubbock as well as other places. Contact me if I can help. However do bear in mind that I am unable to drive but will do my best to assist in any way possible.

***** I really hate to do this, but from now on, I WILL NOT do any transfers or updates that come to me on the message board. I've had too many requests that have errors in them and this just slows everything down. Please, please please use the EDIT tabs on the memorials. This is what it was designed and set up for so please use it. Also, it has gotten to the point that I will no longer respond to transfer requests or up-date requests that are sent to me here on the Message Board or by e-mail. I will only make changes that come to me via EDIT/SUGGEST A CORRECTION. Thanks.****

Many thanks for the words of encouragement and support about my contributions on the site. It has been a godsend for me in doing my genealogy and it is my hope that my work will do for others what others work has done for me.

Permission to use photos

First I want to thank you for your time and effort in taking and uploading photos to the website. I would like to ask your permission to save the photos to my computer system that you took for for my personal genealogy research and posting to my family tree online. I will give credit to your work. Will you permit me to do that?

I really appreciate this,

Tia Rutledge

I have used the edit tab three times over the course of a couple of years to request the memorial transfer of Mabel Anderson Alexander at China Spring Cemetery. I well know it's not in Find A Grave Guidelines; however, I read your profile and you sound like a caring, nice man. Aunt Mabel is very special to me. If you look at my memorials you will see that I'm not adding up numbers, that most of mine are family and why would I pursue this transfer if it didn't REALLY mean a lot to me? It doesn't seem that it should bother you to let me manage the memorial of this very special aunt, sis to my Mother who is 96. Mother is also the reason I don't travel to pursue my genealogical research and interests as I see after her.

I show her these memorials to her on my iPad and she actually helps me --with almost 100 years' worth of knowledge. I'm a China Spring Native and my family here goes back to the 1800's; we still own land here. I'm making a heartfelt plea for the transfer of Aunt Mabel's memorial, # 21833271.
Sincerely, Nancy

Jearl Aubrey Cunningham
I looking for a Jearl Aubrey Cunningham I believe to be buried in the Emma Cemetery in Crosby county Texas. Two others by the name of Cunningham are at this location and I believe he related to them. Jeral was born 7-19-1939.

Emma Melton #16467544
Emma Melton is in the O'Brien Cemetery in Haskell County, Tx. I am wondering if her grave is next to Oze Melton's grave? He is my great great grandfather and I have listed as his wife E. Jane Amarilla Anderson Melton. The year of birth is different but she is the only E. Melton in that cemetery. I am just wondering if she is Oze's wife.
