Hi Linda,

I did not find your Moore Family in the book I have. The date it was published was in 1981, so this book may have already been in progress before the date of death of your relative. I didn't find either of them.

Look-Up Request: I am looking for a baby that was buried at the Parker Memorial Cemetery in Grapevine in 1943. He was born on June 22, 1943 and died June 23, 1943. I think his name is Ray Alvin Driskill. His parents were Roy and Oma Driskill. He was my dad's brother but no one knows where he is buried. My grandparents never spoke of him and we found his name in a bible after my grandmother passed. I would like to find his grave and give him a tombstone.

Hi Melissa,

I did not find Ray Alvin or his parents Roy and Oma Driskill in this book... however. There is a lot of Driskill information in the Parker Memorial Cemetery. This Cemetery is formerly called Clements Cemetery.
Historical Marker:
Parker Memorial Cemetery
"The first burial here is thought to be that of Christina Driskill (1797 - 1862), whose son-in-law Isaac Green Parker (1816 - 1875) owned the land. In 1881 Parkers widow, Mary (Polly) Parker Turner (1820 - 1897) deeded the 4.31-acre plot for a public burial ground. A tabernacle was erected in 1928 and used at first for funeral services and later for meetings of the cemetery association.
Formerly known as "Clements Cemetery" it was renamed "Parker" in 1937. Many members of the Pleasant Glade Community are buried here."
This is the marker of Christina Driskill, mother of William F. Driskill (b. 1822) and Mary (Polly) Parker as mentioned on the Historical Marker.
Driskill, William F. no dates "Capt. McGinnis's Co 20 Brigade Texas Militia C.S.A."
other Driskills buried here are:
A. M.
Annie M.
Berl L.
Fannie L.
Herman F.
Hugh Earl
J. H.
Jessie H.
Jessie Mae
John E.
Murrell Reva
Nancy E.
Sallie E.
Sandra Ann
Susana Parker McDonald Gray
Vera Lucy
Veva Delle

Look-Up Request: Looking for location of Tomlin Cemetery in Arlington. It appears, from records, that my wifes ggg or gggg Grandmother is buried there along with a couple of additional Angels. If I can get the location of the cemetery I can go and take some pictures of her headstone. Her name was/is Elizabeth Angel, wife of Hezekiah Angel. She died around 1880, born about 1798. I have several other Angels to look up. Thanks for any and all help. George

The Tomlin Cemetery is located at:
2200 Block of North Davis Drive, Arlington, Texas

When going north on North Davis Drive turn left (west) on Tomlin Lane, keep going until it dead-ends and you will be at the cemetery.

Elizabeth Angel is buried there in a rock burial cairn.
