Hi. I just wanted to introduce myself. My RL name is Karla Lang and I'm the Special Collections Librarian at the Palestine Public Library. My special interest is in cemeteries, and me, along with a wonderful group of volunteers, are striving to photograph all the headstones in Anderson County. We're taking those pics, and adding them to a database, which will hopefully be online someday in the near future. Kaylee Korbitza is my handle in Second Life, which I discovered in April of this year. Thanks!

We have new neighbors moving in this week-end. They are from Minnesota. The wife said, "It will be nice to get away from the cold north, but I still think I'm going to miss having four seasons."

I said, "No problem. Texas HAS four seasons: early summer, mid-summer, late summer, and next summer."

BTW I have many if not all my tombstone pics on Find a grave....Cross, Parker, Crenshaw, Wood, Strother families mostly in East Texas.

I am looking for (and have for years) Martha Patsy Parker Cross Crenshaw and her son Daniel Crenshaw's graves. I am sure they are in Pilgrim's (unmarked?) or one of the Houston or Anderson County cemeteries, but never find them. I am also looking for her husband, unknown H J Crenshaw.

In looking at the cemetery census for Stewards Mill Cemetery in Freestone County, I don't find Nettie and her son Fleming there but there are Watsons but no Hightowers. I am wondering if she and her son had a stone or if it was a homemade stone that so many of the cemeteries in that area had and now they've eroded to dust. If I recall correctly, Freestone County Genealogical Society wrote a pretty comprehensive cemetery book and it's at the Fairfield Library. You might try checking to see if someone at the library or the gen society can do a lookup for you.

I'm in Tarrant County. They had to enact a new county ordinance require ALL cemeteries have tall fences around them. Vandalism? No, it's just all those people who are dying to get in.

My gr-grandmother, Nettie Eugenia Hightower Watson, and her infant son, Fleming Watson died in Freestone, TX. Nettie d. 1901, in Donie and Fleming, @ 18-mo old d. @ 1899 in Stewards Mill, TX. Can anyone suggest in what cemetery they may be buried?

My husband's line was from Shamrock, Wheeler, Texas...many Davis' buried in the cemetery there.
