Carolyn, I am trying to trace back my g grandfather, George Washington Allison. You have his wife, Sarah Arkansas Cowan's memorial. Do you have any information on him? He was supposedly an orphan but none of our relatives know anything about him.

|MLBushong||RE: Andrew Crawford|
Thank you for the response. Well I had a Crawford question for you but it sounds like you are very familiar with the Harris family instead of the Crawfords. Martha Jane Crawford Bushong married my G-grandfather Luther David Bushong there in San Saba County, TX in 1783. Martha's father and mother are each laid to rest there in Harris Cemetery and they are:
Andrew Jackson Crawford (Memorial# 54915848)
Ellen T. Oliver Crawford (Memorial# 54915918)
You manage these two memorials and I wanted to ask you if I could take over the responsibility of managing these two memorials of my great grandparents. I am very well researched on this Texas and Tennessee family of mine and have a wealth of documentation on their lives before they arrived in Texas, and while they were settled in San Saba County.
If you rather remain the manager of these memorials then I would like to pass along some relevant information to you regarding my grandparents.

|Elbert||Thomas Milton Davis family connections|
Can you explain your connections with Thomas Milton Davis? It sounds like you may be a relative of one of my great uncles. My father is Doyle Calvin Davis and his father is John Milton Davis whose father was Thomas Milton Davis. I know this will get complicated but would appreciate any info you may have. Trip planned to visit the grave of Annie Jeffrey Davis (the first wife of Thomas Milton Davis)around August 18th.

I don't mind letting you have the management of the memorial. However, (you know that was coming) I would like to keep in touch and let me know any "new" information you may come across so that we both are as current with information about the Harrises and of course the Dippreys. This will always be coming your way from me. Give me your updates at firstname.lastname@example.org. I thank you

According to my records David's mother is Didama (Dedima) Bailey. She was born abt 1822 in Kentucky according to the 1850 Federal Census of Travis County, Texas. I got her surname from C. C. Harris narrative. In 1840 census they were in Jackson County, MO. If you will release, I would like to manage this memorial. David is my ggrandfather.

Sorry, The Name of the Cemetery north of Fort Cobb is the Oak Grove Cemetery.

|Elbert||RE: Annie Davis|
Doyle's father is John Milton Davis and his mother is Bertha Katherine Stockton. They are buried in the cemetery at Fort Cobb, Oklahoma. There are two cemeteries in Fort Cobb, one north and one south of town. I think the one north is called Pleasant View and the one south is New Hope. We may have the names switched. John was born March 18, 1892. He died in 1962. Bertha died in 1959.

The statement, "Note: Information taken from Williamson County Cemetery Book, Vol.1." appears on several records. Where is this Book located? And is it available to the public?

Find A Grave Memorial# 70021726
I noted that the page for Jan Skrhak in Old Calvary Cemetery states "No Monument."
I photographed his wife's (Katerina Skrhak)monument and noted that Jan Skrhak's name is at the bottom of the monument, although there are no birth or death dates. Could it be that the one monument is for both?
Would this be recorded at the Granger church?
I also noted reference to "Williamson County Cemetery Book." Where is this located to research these records?

|J Dillard||Cowan family|
I know your William Cowan is related to ours, just not sure exactly how at the moment. Is he the same as William Finnie Cowan? I descend from John Woods Cowan and Margaret Wilson McDowell. Most of my Cowans are buried in McDowell cemetery in Belton (formerly Nolan Valley). Their son Robert Jackson Cowan was Leona's father. I know William Finnie moved to south Texas. He was the son of James Woods Cowan and Mary Serena Hood of Nolan Valley. We are bound to be cousins.

By the way. I see that one of your family names is Cowan. My Cowan family was mostly in Bell and Jones County, TX. If any of those are yours too I would like to connect and share info. My grandmother was Leona Cowan. ~Jody Dillard

|Doug Macnair||Gravis Cemetery|
We were looking at Gravis Cemetery on Cobb Creek road. Most of the residents here didn't even know it was there until a quarry started trying to buy the land it rests on to put a road through for their trucks (Cobb Creek quarry owned by JEC Texas LTD - the same owners as of Kirby Stone in Salado and Lometa). The land was donated for use as a public cemetery In volume 120 page 243 of the public record filed with the Williamson county clerk describes a deed for 2 acre lot ceded by Sarah P. Boatright and W. A. Boatright to the trustees of the Owens Schoolhouse (T. A. Grumbles, C. W. Parks, and J. H. Sybert) dated July 1, 1907.
In volume 120 page volume 244 of the public record filed with the Williamson county clerk describes a release of lien of the same said 2 acres by R. F. Young dated September 28, 1907. In this document is the language, "and whereas the 2 acres of land hereafter described, has for years been used and claimed as a public graveyard, and the title to said 2 acres is vested in the public for such a purpose."
We felt that land granted to the public and in use as a public cemetery should be protected and not sold as a violation of public trust by the Jarrell ISD as a for profit transaction and have been seeking further information about the site. I'd be interested in anything you have to share. Please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience. Your data here shows you deserve the credit for the rediscovery of the lost Gravis Public Cemetery. We are going to register the graveyard with a "Notice of Existence" with the Williamson County Clerk per the recommendation of the Texas Historical Commission. We have also met with Wayne of the Williamson County Historical Commission. I saw his note to you here also seeking more information. Per the recommendation we will be looking to establish a Gravis Public Cemetery Committee to advocate protection for the site and to clean it up when permission is granted to do so. I have posted pictures of some of the internments you had previously posted here.
Thank you and I look forward to speaking with you.

Carolyn: We are in the process of having a map done of the entire cemetery. This includes spaces that are sold and other open spaces. We are having some of the old section done with radar to find unmarked graves. Since the majority of the cemetery had no location markers I am having to change the numbers to include the open spaces. I will be sending out edits of existing locations that will include open spaces. Please accept that some you have already done but it will be the first real map of the whole cemetery. Thanks Ken
