East Tx Cemeteries: About Us


Bobby Britnell, CPO, US Navy, Retired, is a veteran of 22 years active duty, serving in both the Pacific and Atlantic Fleets during the Vietnam War and the Cold War.  Following his Naval service, Bob managed paint stores in Ohio & Arizona, and small department stores in Louisiana.  Bob and Sandra (Sandy) Britnell, Bob's youngest sister, share a large house in Lufkin, Texas. Sandy is a retired Executive Assistant, and  worked in the telecommunications industry in Louisiana for 45+ years.  Another sister is deceased, and an older brother (also a retired Navy CPO) lives in another state. 

We have been heavily involved since 1991 in genealogical research on our BRITNELL and STRINGER family lines, and since 2003 in cemetery research in San Augustine County, locating our ancestors' burials.

     We thank you very much for visiting this website. We provide some research assistance for individuals searching for the burial location of family or friends, and will do some genealogy research. We will never request payment for any service we provide and will not accept payment if offered.  We have no administrative connection with any cemetery listed here, and cannot help with plot purchase or burial assistance.
