Email received seeking info on Richard Young Stedman, Cameron, TX - 1866-1920
Name : Suzanne S. Williford
Address : 1024 Northwest Avenue
McComb, MS 39648
My name is Suzanne Stedman Williford and I have been attempting to find out any
information regarding my great grandfather, Richard Young Stedman. He lived in the
Cameron area in the late 1800's (born 1866 -- 1920) and from what I've been told was in
law enforcement. I have his Colt 45 given to him on his retirement??? engraved on the
butt of the gun "T.M.D. to R.Y.S, Cameron, TX". I've checked with the Texas Rangers and
they have no record.
Any information you could share would be greatly appreciated.

I am trying to get photos of all of the grave markers in the Taylor-Mumford Cemetery on
Farm to Market road 437 between Val Verde and Davilla. This is my family cemetery and I
am a direct line descendant. I can find it on Google World and Bing Maps. It is well
off of the road and in disrepair, but I am trying to find someone that would go and
photograph each stone and the cemetery as a whole for my genealogical research.
I am also trying to find out if a Jeptha "Jesse" Mumford, 1808-1883 is buried there or
at the Davilla Cemetery in the city.
If you have contacts for each cemetery, I would appreciate it if you could get me the
Milam County Historical Commission members showed off a gift box
constructed especially for their educational outreach efforts. The box,
built by John Rinn, will house educational materials used in
presentations to various groups. The box is the final piece of a Texas
Historical Commission grant for Certified Local Government efforts, which
includes county and city maps, Rockdale and Cameron brochures and the
trunk with materials. Pictured are (from left) Dolores Sonntag, Geri
Burnett and Elaine Baumann. Also serving on committees, but not
pictured, are Mary Neely, Darleen Anglen, Gloria Thrasher, Carter
Collins, Tense Tumlinson, Joy Graham, and Lucile Estell.

send our contributions to help keep up the cemetery.
I would appreciate it if you could help us by sending a reply to this e-mail with the
