Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a niece of Lloyd "Pete" Herbert Hughes, who was a Medal of Honor Recipient. Researching his life has been an honor and a privilege. Here are his crew members of the "Ole Kickapoo."

I adopted the Bodan Cemetery in Pollok, Angelina County, Texas, USA because of the many relatives of mine who are buried there. About 40% of those buried there are related to me.

You have my permission to use the grave marker photographs I have uploaded in any genealogy project. They are not one-of-a-kind photographs. You certainly do not, however, have my permission to use my photographs of family members in some money making scheme. Don't laugh, it has already been tried - and stopped.

The transcription of the grave marker on any memorial is important. Please add them. If you have a problem with adding transcriptions of the grave marker, please take it up with Find A Grave. They have a field for it, they, and I, ask that you fill it.

I registered on Find A Grave on 9 Jul 2001 when there were "only" 2.5 million memorials. For some reason, I didn't create my first memorial until 29 Jul 2001.

RE: Duplicates
Your guess is as good as mine Raj ...

The person who originally entered the names in Brookland and photographed them was a reputable contributor. She just got tired of find-a-grave and disposed of almost all her entries. Of the 21 Jordan names entered in Jordan Cemetery, only 11 have photos, leaving 10 with no photos. Basically half. The contributors who did those photos are very thorough and very reputable...and love those really old cemeteries like Jordan Cemetery. I would think that if there was any stone there for Lewis or his wife that they surely would have photographed it. That being said, another possibility comes to mind ... maybe they were re-interred to Brookland?

RE: Duplicates
Hi Raj .. One would naturally assume that the correct location is where the tombstone was photographed. That being in Brookland Cemetery, per photo for Lewis.

I appreciate the transfer of Helen Doris Foster's memorial. In your bio you mentioned adding grave marker transcriptions. I am now going thru my memorials and adding this information. Thank you. Have a blessed day!

RE: Thank you
You're welcome. I knew where the marker was so I didn't have to look around. I knew Miss Agnes, she was a friend of my grandmother.

RE: Elbert County Rev. Memorial
Thanks for adding the Bonds. I have some other names that I will send to you later.

I have some pictures from the Memorial Park from a trip several years ago. I was glad to find a page that had all of the names listed--great idea!

I did share a link to your page on two genealogy facebook pages--one for Thomas Maxwell and for the Higginbotham Family.

Thank you again!

You are very welcome for the confirmation that Anna is buried at Zion Hill. I did not contact the other person about the duplicate. I had hoped that they would see the information and make the correction. I will try to keep an eye on it and hope that it can be corrected at some point. If not, I will try to remember to send them the correct information.

Just curious. I note you created a lot of memorials for folks at Cook-Walden Memorial Hill Cemetery, many don't have photos (which I am working at solving). I was wondering what your source was for the memorials? Regards, Connie

I also just checked the Zion Hill transcription page on Gloria Mayfield's Cemeteries of Texas website and saw that Anna Belle was listed there. I do not know how to make a clickable link, but will copy and paste the web address for you.
