If you have "Civil War or Spanish-American War veteran" ancestors that are buried at the cemeteries, please use the Guest Book or Email to drop me a note. A local researcher is documenting these veterans.

If you have found marked or unmarked graves in the local fields in and around Lea County, New Mexico, please provide directions or GPS cordinates or directions. I will work to get the graves photographed and possibly indentified.

Should anyone know the identity of someone's unreadable marker or headstone, please email me and I will rename the photograph. If you have a local cemetery that you have photographed and would like to see online, please email me for a mailing address.

A"Thank You" goes out to
local historian "David L. Minton", for his historical help and photos
and to "Paul Wilcox" for photos of the Lovington cemetery.

A Special Thank You to my biggest supporter, my "Better-Half" Bev.
