Mr Shappell, today I placed on findagrave the wife of Robert H Campbell in the same cemetery as her husband. I did this based upon the obituary I found for her, which leads me to believe she is buried in the same cemetery. If she is a relative of yours or if you want to have her site transferred to you for any reason, just let me know and I would be happy to do that.

Mattie Jimmy Boswell Lewellyn
Hi Dee!

I was thrilled to see that you found the grave of my daughter Vienna's great grandmother Mattie Jimmy Boswell Lewellyn.
Vienna's Father was born in Wichita Falls Texas where Mattie was buried. Vienna has always been told that she is American Indian on her father's side and we have been looking for several years now on making that connection.

We would love to see a photo of the front and back of the tombstone if you have one. We are also looking for information on Vienna's Great Grandfather and I believe his name was Joseph Leander Boswell.

Also any information you can find on her child Mildred Olean Boswell Helms. We believe her husband was Nolie Helms.

Thank you in advance for your time and I so look forward to hearing from you soon. It's nice finally finding out where you come from.

Angel

P.S. I have signed up on here and am going to start going to cemeteries in my area to help others. This is a great site.

Thank you Mr. Shappell for the information. I to wish you had known about William, but at least you made the picture of the grave stone available. Every little bit helps! Thank you for having that interest and doing that good work. Polly Brock

Mr. Shappell, Would you happen to know anything about this William Gibson, such as who his parents were? Do you know anybody who would know? I beleive him to be the half brother to my great grand father Elbert Taylor. Their mother was Sarah A Watson first married to George Taylor, second to Henry Gibson. I would appreciate any info you might have on William Gibson. Thank you, Polly Brock

Hi Dee,

I am descended from William & Rebecca Crow.

Thank you for placing their graves on findagrave!

I would like to know more about the cemetery. Is the cemetery completely overgrown, or just covered with many layers of debris from nearby trees?

Is it difficult to find?

Thank you for your time.
