Following will be a list of web sites that will help in research of family information.
St Mary’s Cemetery in Westphalia, TX – It contains a listing of all gravesites, (that we can trace), with birthdates, death dates, etc. and most of the photos of all grave markers should be available now. http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb….saintmarys.htm
Texas Death Certificates at http://search.labs.familysearch.org/recordsearch/start.html?datestamp=1208102766625. These certificates have a treasure trove of information including burial date and cemetery in most cases. It is a pilot site sponsored by the LDS church, so doesn’t work all of the time. New data is added often.
