RE: Thomas E Vickers at Big Hill
Hmm... Now I need to go back thru my photos. Maybe I made a mistake and selected the wrong photo number for Thomas E or skipped one because I thought I had done it already. I will double check in a few days. Sorry.



Thomas E Vickers at Big Hill
Hi Christopher

The photo that you posted on Thomas E Vickers memorial http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=53646506
is the gravestone of his mother (Mary Vickers) - which you correctly posted (even though the top is cut off). Could you please delete the photo from Thomas E Vickers memorial?

I'm thinking that the transcription for his memorial is incorrect and was for his mother. Very suspicious that the DOB and DOD are the same except for the year of birth.

Thanks! Great job you did trying to match all of them up.

RE: Big Hill Cemetery photos
It was a big adventure for sure. I have a lot of relatives in that cemetery (several dozen of probably the oldest burials there with most headstones unreadable unfortunately). We were driving to Florida from Chicago on winter vacation (between Christmas and New Years) and decided we would stop on the way. Planned it all out with a stop at a couple of cemeteries on the way, we would leave a day early to allow time. It figures that 2 days before we left, the entire area gets a huge first snow. Add to this the fact that this cemetery is on a hill at the end of a small, dead end road in rural IL. Most residents in the area were still digging out when we came by, especially since it was only a day after Christmas. We got within a mile before we had to turn back, the roads were impossible in our 2 wheel drive car. We almost got stuck several times. It cost us several additional hours of driving and an extra hotel stay with no success. After our vacation was over, my family agreed we could try again on our way back. This time we got about a mile closer and me and my daughter decided to hike the last 1/2 mile and up the hill. Figured I would just take as many photos as I could of every marker and sort it out when I got home. (Sometimes I can actually play with the photo and read more in a photo than at the cemetery.) I knew there were many photo request for this remote cemetery. Unfortunately most of the markers I was after are unreadable (I can see some family names but no given or dates). I did find a few 1900 and readable markers of relatives that were not even in the database, so that was great. So the biggest success was being able to get photos for others. My kids will remember this for sure... dad's crazy adventure hiking in the snow, almost getting us stuck in the middle of the country, to walk a graveyard while on vacation. Figured you might enjoy the story too. Your welcome. I might have to go back again, this time in the summer to really study my family markers. Glad I could help. :-)

Thank you SO much for all of the photos that you are posting to memorials at Big Hill Cemetery. I can't tell you how TRILLED I am to finally see photos of the gravestones. The winter snow looks great!

Additional shildren of Leonidus and Mary Hooper Boss
I cannot give you birth dates or places of birth, but they had two more children...a girl Lena Mae Boss Lewis, who lived in Odessa, Tx. when we last heard of her, and Curtis Boss who also lived in Odessa, Tx. He died somewhere in the time frame of Lee Roy and Tommy Boss. I believe he is buried somewhere in Odessa, Tx.
Also, the baby Jimmie Ray Boss buried in Lovington, NM is buried with two unnamed Boss babies a boy and a girl. All 3 of the above were the children of Gloria Irene Beatty Boss and Donald Ray Boss.
I believe you might be interested to know Don's grandpa Leonidus is buried in Southpark Cemetary in Roswell, NM. I do not know his DOB or his DOD. However, he is buried next to Shirley Mae Boss who is the daughter of Tommy and Bernice Boss. She was born Sept. 9, 1945 and died Jan. 9, 1995. She is buried on B 9 I believe. There is no marker of any kind for him, but there is one for her.
I am Alberta Boss, Don's second wife.

RE: Underwood in Fairview Cemetery
The records were copied off, by hand in the middle 1980s. I can't tell you the exact date of this being copied. The "stone" is a curb marker, only. There aren't any other markers inside the curb. This info is also printed in a book "FAIRVIEW CEMETERY, GAINESVILLE, COOKE COUNTY, TEXAS" compiled by Cross Timbers Genealogical Society. Printed in 1985, and is out of print at this time. Those that were in the burial records were printed to let any kin know they were buried in this cemetery. If you would want any more info on this, send me your email address and I will give you the email address of the guy over the cemetery. With your and Stewart's remarks I am beginning to regret creating this. This cemetery has many, many unmarked graves. Also my husband took a probe and jabbed in the area to see if there were any, that might be underground.

Wondering if your Boss line in Texas includes S.C. Boss married to Ada M. Cherry in Lamar Co., TX in 1897. Ada was noted as the adopted daughter of of James U. Moore and his wife S.A.C. in the 1880 census.
Thanks!

RE: Smith Cemeteries
I am really kinda confused now. I have never been to the one with the red barn. The pics I added are the ones that I took when I was there. I didn't add the one with the red barn in the background. After looking at my Barren County Cemetery Book it seems that there are two very close together. The one I went to was on Dover Road. The other one Proffitt Road off of Dover. There two J D Smiths. One (Dover Road) is B 10-11-1791 and D 5-20-1870 and the other (Proffitt Road) J D Smith B 12-6-1867 and D 2-7-1898. Enoch E Smith is buried in the Etoile one. I know that I am not losing it yet........LOL

Charles Raleigh Kennedy
He did marry three times. The children from the first marriage to Louisa Stewart were Nancy P b abt 1859, and Mary b abt 1873.

He then married second to Eudora Elizabeth (Wilson)(Chandler) on 19 Dec 1876 and they had at least three children: Susan J Kennedy b. 1878; Margaret (Maggie) 1881; and Lula b. 1883.

After Eudora's death, he married Sarah (Saunders) (Majors) on 19 Dec 1895. He died in 1901 and Sarah died in 1933 in Pike County, Arkansas.

White-Wren
John White in the 1870 Census is actually Jasper Wren. Emma Mae White Stunkard (my g-grandmother) was the oldest child of Newton & Mary Jane Pickett Wren White. Jasper Wren was the son of Mary Jane's first husband who was killed in the Civil War. Hope this helps the confusion.

I've been trying to trace my family tree back thru George Washington Payne 1870, to Francis Marion Payn 1833, and to his father Jesse Payne 1807/1808. But, I can't for the life of me find any other reference to Jesse Payne that doesn't come from this website. Do you happen to know anything more about him or his parents? And can you please let me have your email address so I can reach you again? Thank you.

Priscilla Artemissa Mayberry Scott
I have linked Priscilla Artemissa Mayberry Scott to her second son also. Priscilla's death date would be between the birth of the last son, John Thomas Scott, born 7 November 1856 and the time his father Meander Scott married his second wife.
Meander Scott married his second wife Harriet Tressie Douglass on 11 July 1858 in White County, Illinois and there was one child born of their union. His third wife was a Yates and there were two children. His fourth wife was Coker and there were three children by that marriage.
I descend from the second wife Harriet Tressie Douglass and they are my great-great-grandparents.

He was alive living in Izard County according to the 1900 Census.

As for Amanda, she was probably embarrassed to say she was divorced at that time... so she said she was a widow.

According to the cemetery transcription, he is buried with his mother and brother and died in 1929.

Moury is the father of my great great grandfather, Jacob Clay Lewis. I have some census records and family history records that have been handed down in my family to support this lineage.

RE: Old Saltillo Cemetery
I don't know what the memorial is at the cemetery but I see a couple of people there that are in other cemeteries so maybe the word "Arkansas" at the top means something. I'll call my cousin and ask. He is on the cemetery committee at Old Saltillo.
I posted all the information I had last week but I think I said if they were your relatives do you want me to transfer them to you. I deleted the message and I have the CRS (Can't Remember Stuff) disease so I forgot what I wrote. LOL
