Just received your message saying that you could possibly obtain pictures of two of my family members Headstones from the Old City Cemetery there in Lubbock, TX. I would certainly appreciate you time and effort in possibly getting a few pictures up to me, of these grave sites.

The name of the two family members are Fred Sandford Walker (d: 03-21-1960)and his wife, Loretta Grace Walker (d: 12-27-1964). Location of their burial plot is: Section G-1, Lot 6A. Fred is buried in Space #1 and Grace is buried in Space #2. Cemetery records shows the name of the owner of the plot as their grandson, James W. Barclay, currently (1999) listing no address or phone number for James.

I have, since the time of the posting, located the grandson and the owner of the grave plot. James and his family are now living in Breckenridge, TX.What I'm wanting is a couple of good close-up photos of their headstone or headstones, if possible and maybe another shot or two of the entire gravesite, if possible. I had a lady who had volunteered to do this for me, but for some unknown reason, I never did hear back from her after several emails that we had exchanged between the two of us.
stones, if at all possible.

If you could possibly get these photos and email them up to me, I would be eternally grateful to you. I am also sending along this same message to you via my regular e-mail address. Thank you once again for your kind offer. If there is ever anything that I can research for you here in Indiana, please let me know. You've only to ask.
