Thank you so much for trying to find this grave. The information I received must be wrong. Will go back to source and try again.

Thank you so much, Karen, for obtaining and publishing the photo of Lester Ladewig's marker.
From the picture, I was able to get the name of his wife, which I did not have. So thanks a bunch.

It is SO kind of you to search for Sarah Frances Adams Sparks' grave for me. I understand a little bit about what you are going through with African American genealogy. Although I am not African American, I have been recently researching the African American Haddens in Matagorda and Wharton County. I ran across them when I was searching for my Haddens and wondered if they were connected to me in any way. I guess my fear was that my Haddens had been their ancestors' slave owners. I was able to contact some of these Hadden descendants and they related to me a little bit about their oral history. They said that Martha Robinson, the matriarch of this group, married a mixed race man named James E. Hadden, and James E. Hadden's father was a white man names James E. Hadden. My ancestor, John Hadden, had a brother, James Elliott Hadden, who lived in Wharton and Matagorda Counties before the Civil War. James Elliott Hadden didn't have slaves as far as I know, but his nephew, William, did. The age/sex of William's slaves in 1860 match up with Martha and her daughter. I can't tell you how my heart sank when I put it all together. When we begin studying our genealogy, we all hope that our ancestors were good, upstanding people and it is somewhat shocking and discouraging to discover that they were not.

Thanks so much for posting the picture of Hope Cooper's grave at the Stockton Cemetery in Wharton. My GG grandmother, Sarah Frances Adams, is supposed to be buried there - her obit says so, but her stone is not pictured on the Wharton website with the others. Did there appear to be any unmarked graves there, or stones that were unreadable? Thanks so much!
|Linda Christensen||Thank you!|
Thank you so much for taking the time to find the stone, to photograph it, then post it. Thanks again! Linda
