I am the current president of the Washington County Genealogical Society and would like to extend a hand to similar organizations.  I am also a certified gravestone conservator, trained by Jon Appell at the Campbell Center in IL.  I am a recently-retired school teacher and am doing the conservation work full-time.  If any of your members, or if the organization itself needs advice or work done at any Milam Co. cemeteries, please let me know.  I have almost completed a year-long refurbishment of the B'Nai Abraham Cemetery adjacent to Prairie Lea Cemetery in Brenham, and have reset fallen headstones and monuments in/around Washington County.

As a graduate of A&M in 1989 with a BA in History, and a BA in English in 1991, I follow an academic mindset in stonework.  I do keep up with research and findings in the field, and I adhere to the U.S. Parks Service "Best Practices" for dealing with gravestones and markers.  I will do cleanings, resets, reassembly of broken/shattered stones, replacing broken bases with either poured concrete or carved limestone, and reassembly of fallen, multi-piece markers.

Also, if your group ever has anything that members of the WCGS (  might have an interest in, please let me know, and I can pass it along at our meetings.

Thank you.
Lowell Herzog

Mr. Caywood,

I am contacting the county historical associations/organizations this month to let them know of my gravestone conservation business.  I last contacted you in Sept of 2015; since then, I have reset probably another 160 stones and also have a website for more information about me and my work.

If you a still the website admin, please let your members know (again) about my services.

Thank you.
Lowell Herzog
