Bio and Links
Bio Photo It seems that there are some on Find A Grave that don't want you to use their photo's any where other than here, and that's fine. I respect their decision even if I don't understand it. I mean what's the point of volunteering to get a photo for someone, if they can't use it anywhere? With that being said, anyone may at anytime use any of the photo's I post on Find A Grave, for their own personal use or public use. If you want to post my photo in your ancestry tree online, on a billboard, or on the TV, go for it, that's why I drag myself to the cemetery for you. Don't even worry about giving me credit. Consider it a gift, in honor of your ancestor.

Thank you!

First of all, I want to thank you for volunteering your time and energy to go out and take these pictures, to share them online for everyone to view and share, and to take the time to reply to these messages. Your work is greatly appreciated and has helped my genealogy research a great deal.

I was wondering if you might be able to answer a few questions about one of the headstones in Adkisson Cemetery in El Paso? Find A Grave Memorial# 15555730 for Gideon Terry has his birth date listed as Jan 30, 1908, death date listed as Jan 2, 1911, and Granville Wade Terry listed as his son. I am fairly certain there's at least one mistake here. If the dates are correct and he died when he was 2 years old, it's safe to say that he didn't have any children. If the relationship is correct and he is Granville's father, I'm pretty sure the dates are incorrect.

I am hoping the dates are incorrect and that this is my Great Great Grandfather who lived from about 1836 to 1911 or 1913, but unfortunately I cannot make out any of the information on the headstone because it is so old and weathered. Is there any way you can help me out?

Thank you so much,
Rick Kirby

RE: Harris followup
I only live a few miles from the cemetery, so it's a really short trip. I typically go when there are new requests (weather permitting), and I try to stay afterwards to take as many photos as my battery life allows. I can usually get over a hundred so in one trip. (I've posted everything I've taken.) It will take me many, many trips to photograph the rest of the cemetery since there are still over 2,000 memorials with no photo, but I love going there. It's good exercise! So yes, please keep requesting! :)

Harris followup
Hi again Susie, I see now that Camilla and Charles have been linked as spouses, so you can disregard my question. I guess this link was very recently done because I don't remember seeing that (or seeing Charles' full name) when I checked yesterday. Thanks! -Tim

Harris stones at Mt. Carmel
Hi Susie, I am uploading photos of the stones you requested for C.R. and Camilla Harris, but I wanted to warn you about how terribly aged the stones are. Although both are standing and in one piece, Camilla's is almost illegible -- it's actually easier to read in the photo than being there in person. Were they husband and wife? I am also adding a photo of the stones together in case they were. Best wishes! -Tim

I've just been informed that mine is a duplicate. Please move your picture to the original and let me know--then I'll delete the page. There had been confusion about this cemetery for many years, because of the town and the cemetery being on opposite sides of the county line, and I think the original may have been in the wrong cemetery at first.
