RE: R. L. Brown
Sorry for the delay in answering, I have been very ill. I am sorry but I do not know anything more about R. L. Brown. It just happened that I was staying near the cemetery when I was hauling water for FEMA after Katernia. There were very long waits between the dispatching of loads, so I spent my time in the cemetery collecting what information I could find. You may be able to contact someone at the cemetery itself to get more info. Good luck to you.

Boss of Walton
Hi there!

I saw on the rootsweb message boards that you are related to the Boss family of Georgia -- I'm of the Henry Thomas Boss/Anna Catherine Oehler then John George Boss then Catherine/Caroline Boss who married Wilson L Stevens -- my paternal grandmother's line.

I don't have much information on them, I'm still working on it all, but wanted to connect.

James M. Walker II in Oakland Cem
Parker CO. TX

I found his father, Rev. James M. Walker, in East Greenwood Cemetery, but I have not been able to find where Rev. Walker's first wife, Sarah Jane (Brown) Walker is buried. Do you know?
Records I've found say she d. in Parker Co. March 9, 1907. She was mother of at least seven children. Some of them I've located here around Weatherford, but not their mother.
Any help appreciated.

George Boss
Well, I found the cemetery, unfortunately there is no marked stone for George. There were a couple of unmarked, old field stones, three boundary stones, and a memorial stone for Green Livsey & Henry Boss & families. The only other stone is for Green Livsey. I have posted the memorial stone & cemetery overview on the cemetery page (pending approval). You can see both stones on Green Livsey's page.
I also claimed your request & marked the problem & requested it removed. (The cemetery is now on private property...I got "unauthorized" approval from the neighbor, as the property was bought by a builder for a subdivision which went bankrupt & is now bank owned)
I would be happy to post an field stone, the memorial stone, the over view or not post anything. Let me know what you would like.
This cemetery is not at the posted coordinates! We walked ALL over & had given up finding it. We were leaving & just happened to walk past it! Pure luck! There are tons of new growth pines, old pines, wild holly bushes, thorn bushes & downed trees. This one is a hard one to find & no clear path leads to it!
Sorry I don't have a more positive report for you! I took about 19 pictures & would be happy to e-mail them to you if you would like them!

George Boss
I was just looking at your photo request. I wanted you to know that Wed 3/26/14, I am moving to a house just across the creek from this cemetery. I am not going claim this request, but I'm gonna try to take a take a run over there today. If I can't get to it today, once I get moved in, I'll follow the creek down & see if I can get to it that way. Keep your fingers crossed. Hopefully I can find something for you.!

RE: Izella Moore
I looked for her under the 1920 Parker County census both under Greenberry and Moore. There is a Mrs. I.M. Moore (incorrectly shown as MARS IM on the census) listed as 79 as of 28 January 1920, born in Illinois, living with a son identified by initials C.M. , who, it looks like, is 34 years of age. I take it he moved after his mother's death as he does not appear on the 1930 Parker County census nor is there a CM Moore born around 1886 buried in Weatherford cemeteries.

Assuming her birthdate was after 28 January, it indicates her year of birth was 1840 as the CSA pension information indicates.

I also note there are two entries on Find A Grave for Izella Moore in Oakland Cemetery. Same stone, different dates. History does perplex the living.

Izella Moore
I have uploaded a photo of Ms. Moore's gravesite at Oakland Cemetery, Weatherford, TX. I have noted on the photo caption that both the birth and death years on the stone do not agree with the birth and death years on Find A Grave.

Could you please confirm that this is the correct person, and provide an explanation regarding the differences?

RE: Franklin, Luther & W.W. Ball
You are welcome, glad to help. I guess you could see Franklin Ball's name on his headstone was not readable but the dates matched and he was buried next to Luther Ball. Steve

John Boss
I think I have solved the John Boss mystery! His actual headstone reads Robert Lee Boss, leaving out the John. But he is listed as John L Robert Boss on his Find A Grave memorial. I must have missed it originally.

Regardless, I was there taking a bunch of photos last Friday and his was one of them! Go to #99894664 to see them. Sorry I did not put it together earlier.

No worries, I was there taking lots of photos today so it was not a problem. Just sorry he was not there.

I was at Sugar Hill Cemetery yesterday and have not found John Boss yet. I will be returning next week to look again because I did not get to all the graves (it is a big place). So I hope to have him located then, just wanted to update you.

You are welcome! I know all about being far away, my family is mostly in NY and OH and of course I didn't start searching until after I moved to TX! Let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.

RE: Parsons photo requests
You are very welcome. I've run across other families in the county where there are close relationships. I hope the creator of the memorials can sort things out with the Parsons. There were many Parson graves in the cemetery.

Best wishes on your research. I am currently trying to figure out my Jones and Davenport ancestors. It can be quite an undertaking.

Parsons photo requests

I took photos at Parsons Grove Church and posted for Maggie (Effie Margaret Johnson Parsons)and her husband Duncan Parsons. They share a marker. I saw where Elizabeth S. Parsons was also listed as a wife of Duncan Parsons. Odd thing, she was listed with the same dates as Maggie. I searched my census listings and walked the cemetery but did not find anyone named Elizabeth Parsons. I believe this must be an error and contacted the Memorial's creator about this.

I also took photos of son Clayton Colvin Parsons and his wife Margaret's double marker. I will go back and look for James G. Parsons grave...I think I overlooked it.

If there are any other Parson photographs you would like, just put in a request. The cemetery is not far from where I live and I like going out and taking pictures.

My best,

Dottie Wilkie

Hi and thanks for looking for Bronislawa Rog's marker. I have it on good faith (her niece) that she is buried very close to an oak tree. I went ahead and re-posted the request; thank you for your diligence.

RE: Lovedy Estill Photo
You are very welcome. I just added photos for Isaac Estill and Frank, Julia, Ruby and Savannah Cruikshank, Anna Cruikshank Gist and Elizabeth Cruikshank Sims for you. I have a photo of the marker for Rebecca Cruikshank, died 10 Feb 1905, but I don't see a memorial for her. If you will add the memorial and let me know, I'll post the marker photo for you.

RE: Thank You!
I forgot to ask you if you have ever been to any of the Smith reunions. For many years they were held in Bandera, but the last couple of years they have been at the Methodist church in Medina. Also, having been to many Smith reunions, I have to tell you that I think Julia Long was a beautiful woman. How many women today would be so pretty with no makeup? We don't have any pictures of Amanda Coker, the wife that Buddy descended from.
We have the book written by Bob Weed and Ethel Klemcke, "Robert Mays Smith From South Carolina To Texas (The Long Way)". It gives the history of the Smith and Dorn families. It's copyright was 1988 and it was published by Henington Publishing Co. Wolfe City, TX 75496. I don't know if copies are still available.
