I have the Evans relatives buried in the Monument cemetery which includes Louis C, Willie Mae and Louis S and James (Jimmy) Evans. My mom Peggy Evans died recently and we will burying her there this December.

There is another website that I am looking for that has a list of all those buried in the Monument Cemetery.

My grandfather Mark I. Shearer is buried there, and I have tried to find the cemetery once before. How do I get to Murphys Chapel from Lubbock? I guess this means he is actually buried in New Mexico, not in West Texas as my ancestors have said. Can you confirm this for me? Thank you so much!!! Linda Gregory, lkg49@msn.com

Please correct the year of death for Gibbs J Winslow in Prairie Haven Cemetery, Hobbs, NM. Currently it reads "1932" and it really should be "1982". Confusion arises from reading the year from the photo of the tombstone. Thanks for making the correction. :=)

According to the Hobbs News Sun plots at Evergalde Cemetery are no longer sold. If I understand correctly, this is because there were so many unmarked graves. In recent months Booker T. Washington elementary school had fund raisers and used the money to buy grave markers for these unmarked graves. I recently went to Everglades Cemetery and took pictures of most of these newly marked graves. Anyone who loves Lea County history should go and see what a beautiful difference the new grave markers made. Your site is amazing! You and your historians are amazing! Sites like yours make the world a better place!

Ernest,

I have been researching my Turley family and possibly have a connection to your Edward and Alcy Long family. This is what I know so far. On 19 Feb 1866 Archiblad Turley married Elizabeth Mathews in Hunt County, Texas. She was born 14 Dec 1832 in Tennessee and died 9 May 1904 in Alexander, Erath, Texas. She was Archibald's second wife. This couple had one daughter, Rachel Turley who was born 12 Jul 1868 in Hunt Co., TX, she married an Albert W Rusk. The Texas death certificates are on line now at www.pilot.familysearch.org. I have been going nuts using those records and the wealth of information gleaned from them. Case in point - When I found the death certificate for Rachel Turley Rusk (d 1954) she gives her mothers name as Elizabeth Long. I began to look around for a Long family living in Hunt County in 1860 and there I found Alcy Long with her daughter Elizabeth and other children.

I am thinking that Elizabeth may have been married for a short time to someone named Mathews. Can you shed any light on this subject?

I have been "stuck" in finding my mothers side of the family. I have very few notes, some pictures. I do know that her father and grandfather (Elledge) lived in Quay County. I have just found by Great Grandfather buried at Tucumcari Memorial Park in 1916! I thought I had found all info on New Mexico until now... I have bookmarked this... many thanks to all who have contributed it make my research that much easier from NC.

I just wanted to let you know you have done a wonderful job on this. I know myself with researching its alot of work. I have found alot of my families headstones just on your site. I did want to let you know that most every link works except for the Prarie Haven Memorial Park in Hobbs. The pictures of the headstones wont pull up...they have a broken link. I did try several there. I hope this can be fixed cause I have more family members in that particular cemetery. Thanks for all your hard work.

Very interesting web-site!....

In Artesia, there is Woodbine which is pretty much in town as I recall, and the other one is out of town heading north towards Roswell, I think on the west side of that highway. I have relatives buried in each of them - Owens in Woodbine, and Owens and Newton in the other one - I think that name is Twin Oaks or something like that. I got a lot of copies of your phots on my family in Prairie Haven in Hobbs. I visited there some years back and got pictures also, but some of yours are better than mine; and it's nice to know that they are here on the web.

I am curious to know which cemeteries this listing includes. I used to live in Seminole many years ago and still look at that area periodically. I still have some friends there that I see when I go back to high school reunions.

Can you tell me what the proper names for the cemeteries in Gaines County are and where they are located? I tried to get this information from a funeral home there but received no response.

You have done some really nice work. It is appreciated.

I would appreciate it if you could make a correction on the Memory Gardens (Hobbs, Lea Co. NM) page. You listed the name of Marvin K. Scott... the tombstone inscription is Irvin K. Scott. He is listed on the monument with his son, Christopher K. Scott. I think there are two listings which have him as "Marvin" but his tombstone reads "Irvin K. Scott". I am very impressed with your website and have enjoyed looking at all the photos of those that have gone before. You have done an excellent job!!!

you have a nice website....it is something to be proud of. A very good job on the links...everything works that I know of. I especially like the clock. I also have a penchant for old houses etc.
I am in the process of shooting "descansos"....these are crosses that are put in memory of auto accidents victims that have passed away. "Decansos" means "resting places" in Spanish.

Good Job Master Erny

Great site EXCEPT for the rotating calendar/clock that follows the cursor around. This is gimmicky and frustrating.

I live in Hobbs, NM and was thrilled to find this site. My family is buried at Memory Gardens in Hobbs so I will be checking back often to see if you are working on that cemetery yet. Thanks for all your time, effort, and work into making this site available. Most of my research is done in Texas as we have only been in Hobbs since 1948.

The names that I research are Cope(NC & TN), Gordon(TX, GA & NC), Lee(TX & GA), Raiza(TX, MI, & PA), Elder (TN), Nutt (NC, TN, MO,& TX), Landers(TN, MO, & TX), Wright(NC, MO, & TX), Trammell(GA), Riza (TX).

Good start on a great site. Lots of work - right?
Some of my folks are in the Boone Cemetery and Memory Gardens. I have a few pictures of Memory Gardens if they would do you any good.
I know it is hard to keep all of the pages in sync.
The INDEX page has the Boone cemetery in Hobbs - The HOME page doesn't.
In Lovington, Roberts.jpg and Roberts_Velma_and_Lee.jpg are the same stone.
Keep up the good work - Jim

I commend you on your research. I have an album of tomb and tombstone photographs for my lineage in the my area of south Louisiana and east Texas. Some individuals think I'm coo-coo, but I enjoy it and find it invaluable.

Your website is excellent. Animation is wonderful! How/where did you get the clock-calendar which follows the cursor? My wife is amazed.

Thanks for sharing your research and efforts.

Very nice website. I have Long line but they are from North Carolina.

Would like to see more pictures of Clovis, New Mexico as I have relatives buried there - Surname - Barnes and Moorman.

Also if you are going to go to Texas, I have a great grandfather who supposedly is buried in Kaufman County, Texas but don't know which cemetery.

The clock. . .cute idea but it is like a pesky little fly. . however, the longer I stay on your website I just try to ignore it !!! Keep up the great work on the site.

Nice site Erny. I also do some cemetery photography here in southeastern Michigan. However this year with gas prices rising faster than buzards riding a thermo.. well just can't get out as often or as far as even a year ago. Maybe it's age creeping up on me.
I really like the name, Sleeping Ancestors.
Do any of your friends think you're a little crazy? Many of mine think of me because of my views and feelings about cemeteries... Homes of our ancestors.. where their spirits now live. Headstones..??.. their "windows" to Our world !
Ah well, I can blame it on getting older.
A fine job, Erny, keep up the good work.
Rick

Great work on your website. Thanks for being so "giving". FYI there are 2 burial sites on range land on a large ranch outside of Capitan, NM. The last name is Burlingame. I haven't been able to find anyone to claim them. I don't know if it's my age or the clock...but it is too much.
