Ellen Estes Crain
I thought I could give a try as well in finding Ellen. In doing so I spoke with the lady who handles the computer program. She gets the information from the city when plots are purchased and adds the information from the obits. In this case the print out she gave me shows as Tom stated for NW I lot 85. The cemetery assoc has it as Sec 1 Row 36 and grave 12. However, neither she nor I could find the actual one as there is no headstone. It is true she may be in 85, but she also may be in any of the ones 81-85 as she died from the flu epidemic. Martha said as there were so many dying from the epidemic they were buried fast and no specific record for each one. her documentation shows "00" for marker meaning there was none. She did say they are working on a project to get all of the numbered ones assigned and in the record so they will have it for future reference.

So while I did not find her either apparently she is there in a numbered spot.

RE: ellen wallace estes crain
I had another trip to cemetery today so I stopped by the Boerne Library where the cemetery records are held. I was able to get the names of persons buried on either side of Ellen Crain. That way I was finally able to locate her site. There is no marker/headstone/memorial for Ellen Crain. She is buried in Section "Northwest 1, lot 85". I found memorial lot 80 for Mr. Ramzau and then none for the next 5,lot 81-85, then lot 86 has memorial for Mr. Cravey. So conclusion is that the records are correct, just no marker/memorial for Ellen.

RE: stella chambliss crain
Well it is interesting to study family history. My parents were Oscar and Lorene Gordon and we lived in Post Texas, where I graduated from high school. Mom died in 97 at the age of 92, and Dad at 86. I had three older brothers. Two of my older brother have passed and the one still alive lives in Nacadoches Texas. One of them died from Lukemia at 53. Mary Ann and I have 3 daughters, 35, 33 and 24. I preached for 25 years and now teach school, my wife is a school nurse and we live 24 miles from Post. Most of the Chambliss died from heart disease. Uncle Elvin (Stella's brother) died from Lung cancer and Leonard (another brother) died from chronic pulmanary disease, both were heavy smokers. Sorry to hear of you losses. Take care and anything you want to know please fill free to ask.

Best regards, Jack

Hi, Theresa,

I am Jackie Gordon but I go by Jack. My mother was Anne Lorene Chambliss, your grandmother's sister. I also have visited the Colony grave site. Grandma Chambliss lived in Post, Texas with us for a short time and I adored her. I remember Stella and she was a nice lady. Where do you live and tell me about your family? If you prefer to write me at my email address it is Thank you so much for writing.

This past year we got together at Gatesville, Texas for a Chambliss reunion with Wayne and Gail (Chambliss) Turner. Hope you can see fit to attend sometime in the future.
