Merle R Pounds, DFW cemetery
He is in this cemetery. The hulk toy was left for him and I didn't leave it! That's a great gesture from probably a grandchild.

He was married to my first cousin, Lenora. I think it needs to be with his Cogbill family. Thank you, Cheryl

Woodrow W. Pound

You know, I just thought of another place to search. The Dardanelle Library has the newspaper archives. The next time I get over to Yell County, I'll try to remember to stop in and check for an obituary for Woodrow. There was no copy in the Danville Library archives but those were saved clipped obits. If I look up the newspaper on film, there may be an obituary to transcribe and it may provide information regarding his final resting place! Will keep you informed.

Hi Debra,

Silly me, I didn't even notice the buy now box! Excellent job of gathering this info and thank you for sharing. How easy and convenient is this. I will order a copy and we can see what it might provide in the way of additional information. Will let you know when I get the record and will be very happy to share.

RE: Re the Pound family

I am so happy you are not upset with me. Genealogy is not an exact science and as we go back in time, it becomes more and more difficult to locate supporting documents. That is why we've spent so many hours scanning and optimizing the old obituaries. They sometimes help the family researcher/historian piece things together when other records are lacking.

I am sorry but I do not have a copy of what I think might be Woodrow's death certificate. When things slow down and I have more time, I'd like to try and find out if New York State would allow me to order a copy. The death happened so long ago, there's no immediate family to make a request. Maybe they'll allow a copy to be made for a shirt-tail relative. :-) I can also try to find something on his Naval enlistment. There has to be a record of that event. I just don't know what state he was in when he enlisted but this would be one record we might find helpful. I doubt Woodrow married. Based on a birth year of 1913-1914, he was only 17-18 when he died. His mother has written that he wanted to become a doctor so he knew he had several years of school ahead of him. Plus, belonging to a prominent family, there surely would have been some mention in the local paper.

If I ever locate anything more on Woodrow, I will be happy to forward the information and copies of supporting documents to you.

with warmest regards, Mary

RE: Re the Pound family

It wasn't my intention to offend you. I research Yell County AR heavily and just happened to notice the death date for the Woodrow Gillian Pounds you have linked to Lillian and Thomas as their son. First, the name is different and the death date doesn't correspond with my research. I just thought you might like to know there is a difference of thought regarding the linkage.

My connection to the Pound family is by marriage via Judge Thomas Boles, my gguncle, who married Julia Elizabeth Pound.

Here is a quote taken from a history article written about the Pound family and published recently in the Yell County Record Newspaper:

It was written as a narrative, spoken by Lillian:

"Just five years after my husband died, I lost my son Woodrow in a tragic accident at the U.S. Navy Hospital. He was a medic and wanted to become a doctor.

The year was 1931 and it was during the Great Depression. My two sons, Carroll and Dick, kept the newspaper running after their father died, even though times were hard."

Woodrow's middle inital was W. You can see it clearly in the 1930 Fed Census. I've always wondered if it stood for Warren, his paternal grandfather's middle name.

You can find some of the Pound obituary transcriptions at the following site:

Following are the two obituaries you requested I provide to you. If you'll also look up his brother, Joseph Carroll's obit, you will see that it, too, doesn't mention Woodrow as a survivor. Joseph Carroll died in 1951. Neither does the obituary for his sister, Nellie Belle, who died in 1971.


Lillie Craig McCarrell Pound

February 15,1881 - April 14, 1967

Mrs. Lillie Craig Pound, aged 86, of Danville, widow of Thomas Lovick Pound, died Friday. She was a native of Danville. Her husband was the publisher of the Danville Democrat from 1899 until his death in 1926. T. L. was a president of the Arkansas Press Association.

Survivors include three daughters, Mrs. Olen Thomas of Danville, Mrs. W. S. Murphy of Massachusetts and Miss Nellie Pound of Benton, seven grandchildren and five great-grand-children.

Funeral will be held at 2 p.m. Monday at the Danville Methodist Church. Burial will be at Old Danville Cemetery by Cornwell Funeral Service.


Thursday, January 14, 1926


Announcement of the death of T. L. Pound, editor of the "Danville Democrat", which occurred in a Little Rock hospital about midnight Monday night, has brought sorrow to every section of Yell County, for Lovic Pound was known and respected from one corner of the County to the other.

For twenty years he has been editor of the "Danville Democrat", and not a day in that long time passed but that he was engaged in some effort to better his community, his County and his State.

Possessed of a genial, kindly nature, Lovic Pound was nevertheless a man of strong convictions, and he had the courage to back his opinions with his pencil. Though differing from him at times on public questions, the "Post-Dispatch" has always respected his sincerity of purpose and admired his fearlessness in championing a cause he thought to be just.

And not only through the columns of his paper was he a valuable citizen; he took an active personal interest in every movement, for the advancement of his town first, and then his County and State, and was ever generous of his time and means in behalf of any cause he espoused. He served several terms as Mayor of Danville, was President of the Yell County Bank for a number of years, and in 1917 was President of the Arkansas Press Association. At the time of his death he was 56 years of age.

Mr. Pound is survived by his wife, three sons, Carroll, Richard, and Woodrow, and three daughters, Misses Nellie, Ruth and Mary Jean; also by his aged mother, Mrs. M. Pound, and one sister, Mrs. Lula Frazier, all of Danville.

( ~~ Post-Dispatch Newspaper, Dardanelle, Arkansas, pub. Jan 14, 1926 - Obituary courtesy of Dardanelle Public Library Archives, Arkansas River Valley Regional Library System, Dardanelle, Arkansas)

There are also Pound obituary transcriptions on our larger site:

I have found a record of a Kings County, New York death certificate issued in 1931 for a Woodrow Pound. The Brooklyn Naval Hospital was located in Kings County, New York. This is possibly the Naval Hospital Woodrow, as a Naval Medic, was assigned to when he died.

I hope this is helpful or at least provides a different prospective.

Hello Debra,

I have your requested pic of the headstone for Benjamin Pugh at New Hope Church Cemetery in Acworth, GA. The headstone is broken in half. I am not very computer saavy and I downloaded the pic to this computer but I cannot get it to load. If you want to send me your email, I will email it to you and perhaps you can download it.

RE: 69327046 Rice-Henley Cemetery
I am going back to look again at this cemetery. It is very grownup. The stones are very weathered. Some cannot be read. This cemetery has become a dumping ground for the neighbors trash. This cemetery is located in Grandview which is a nice subdivision. Ergo, the condition of the cemetery surprised me.

I am researching the Magee family, most of whom ended up in Louisiana. At this time I am trying to find the grave of my uncle Frank Newton Magee.
He was born in 1915 and died in Louisiana in 1983. I thought he was buried at Alexandria Memorial Gardens. His wife Dorothy should be buried there as well.

Thanks for Any help that you can give on any of the Magees!!
