Thank you for posting the photo of the gun salute by the 12th Texas Infantry. My husband attended this dedication and we didnt know a photo existed. It was great to see it. If I had known back then, that Rawlinson was one of my ancestors, I would have attended too. Rawlinsons wife was a cousin of my ancestor Madison Whitaker.

Danny Ray,
You have a photo of Jerry Lee Bowers at McKnight Cemetery, Nacogdoches County, TX.
Jerry's Memorial# 22805101 -- he's my distant cousin.
Would it be ok to use your photo on my family tree? I will include (Find A Grave photo & permission by Danny Ray) for each photo I use.

Louisa Jane Rawlinson Boyette
Memorial# 22805105. This says she is buried in an unmarked grave in McKnight Cemetery. Do you know where this comes from? Are there records somewhere of who all is buried there? I also notice that Elzey's says unmarked also. just curious how you knew this. I have an early (1975 copy) of Carolyn Reeves Ericson's book Nacogdoches County Cemetery Records Vol III and neither of them are listed as buried there.

Additional on Elzey Boyette
Just discovered that Zeola Boyette is a granddaughter of Elzey Boyette and Louisa Jane Rawlinson, a child of their son, John, and listed in the 1900 and 1910 census of Nacogdoches Co, Texas as a daughter to John.

Elzey Boyette memorial # 22805102
I am a descendent of Elzey Boyette and Louisa Rawlinson Boyette. Elzey remarried to Sarah Bawcom March 18, 1880 ( Marriage Records of Nacogdoches Co, Texas 1824-1881, p. 115 by Murrie), so children born after this date cannot be children of Louisa. I also wonder about Mamie being his daughter. He would have been 87 at the time of her birth and though not impossible, not probable either. And his second wife would have been 64, not at all possible. I do know they had a daughter, Caroline but census has her birth at 1860 (which we know could be off) but 9 years is sort of a stretch. It's all a puzzle but do know that Louisa Rawlinson Boyette was not the mother of Zoela and Mamie. Let me know if I can help any more....

Danny Ray,

Please delete the photo of Henrietta Beard you posted on her Find a grave Memorial # 10584576. I have posted a better one. I cannot even tell if the photo you posted is of Aunt Henrietta or not. I know my picture is not much better. I wish I had an even better one. She was my great-aunt and very dear to me. I knew her well.

Do you happen to know if Eddie Solomon has a marker in the cemetery? Do you have any idea around where he is buried?

Louisa Jane Rawlinson
Hi Danny,

I have a little information on Louisa Jane Rawlinson Boyett who is buried in McKnight Cemetary. She was born on March 21, 1838, and married Elzey Boyett on July 15, 1854 in Nacogdoches County. She was born in Nacogdoches County. Unfortunately, I do not have a date of death for her. I can remember my mother searching for her date of death for many years.

Thanks again for all the work you do. I can imagine it is not easy, living the distance you do from Cushing. Take care.
