Orlene Simmons/Grayburg Black Cemetery

Before you change anything I found out where the Dec. 15, 1889 date of birth for Orlene Simmons came from. It's from his World War I draft registration card and it's probably correct. If you check him in the 1910, 1920 and 1930 census his birth date would be 1888, 1893 and 1895 respectively, not the 1900 year of birth on his death certificate. I would keep the 1889 date. Also, I would love to get a copy of your report to the Commission with the map and pictures.

Orlene Simmons/Grayburg Black Cemetery
I'm researching the Old Grayburg Black Cemetery in Hardin County Texas and I found your entry on for Orlene Simmons who died February 14, 1938. His death certificate says he was born on December 12, 1900, but you show a birth date of December 15, 1889. I wonder if you would mind sharing your source for his date of birth.

Grayburg African American Cemetery
Mr. Griggs;

I hope you are still monitoring the Find A Grave web site, if so could you please tell me just where and what road is the Grayburg African American cemetery in Hardin county, Texas is located on. I have drove the Grayburg area and was not able to locate the cemetery, I found the other Grayburg cemetery, but would love to double check the African American one to see if any new graves have been added and if all the graves were photographed.

Yours truly

Ruth Tammen
