He is buried in a lone grave at 195 Gilbert Street in the Rio Brazos Community (about two miles south of Tin Top) in Parker County, Texas.
D. W. served in Company C of the 1st Arkansas Cavalry during the Civil War. He arrived in Texas from Batesville, Arkansas in 1877 with a group of several other families. His daughter Martha and son-in-law Strother Ashby Bradley settled in Hood County. D. W. and his wife settled in Blair Valley which is barely across the Hood County line in Parker County.
Married Rebecca M. VARNELL (1835-1879) on 22 NOV 1850 in Murray Co.,Georgia.
Further information (and his middle name) comes from his Great-Great Granddaughter (thank you for the info)...His gravesite is unmarked because his marker was moved by the landowner to make the best plot of land more inviting. The stone moved all over the hill as the land was sold. After being moved several times a relative rescued the monument and placed it next to David Wilson MacDonald's first wife's grave in a small cemetery close by.
