Cemeteries of Goliad
"My primary interests are listing the cemeteries located in Goliad County, Texas."

I'm looking to locate a couple of RICHEY family burials in Goliad. I'm not asking for you to search, but I was thinking maybe you might keep a look out ... maybe someday you just might stumble across them. Or maybe you have some advice even. So far nothing has turned up for me and that might be because their graves went unmarked or stones were lost or damaged.

Grave #1: S. Callie WORD who married Alva Adison RICHEY in Goliad 1872. She had two boys and probably died sometime before 01 JUN 1880. On the 1880 census her son Will was living with his great uncle and family -- James M. WORD -- and her son Robert Del was living with a cousin -- J. H. PITTMAN. Also on the 1880 census her husband, Alva, was listed as a widower in a boarding house in Goliad.

S. Callie's husband, Alva RICHEY, and their sons Robert Del RICHEY and William Word RICHEY later moved to El Paso, Texas. Alva RICHEY died in 1902 and Robert Del RICHEY died 1945. Both are buried in El Paso.

Grave #2: the youngest boy, Will RICHEY, died in 1932. His death cert says his body was removed for burial to Goliad. I'm pretty sure he was taken home to be with Other family members -- like maybe his mother even. Will never married.

Anything at all is appreciated!

RE: Letter!
Thanks, Tom! Does she have children in Austin?
If not, I'll try a couple of other sources.

Thanks for the information.

RE: Denhams in Goliad
I think you're right but he may have worked for Braniff and then Eastern. My father had a friend that did that. I'm sure their paths crossed there.
Thanks for helping out and thanks for the work you do on Find A Grave.
P.S. I may send the article to your aunt with a short letter of explanation.

RE: Denhams in Goliad
I was going through an old scrapbook of my parents and found a wedding article for Margery Ruth Tally and Charles Ogden. They must have been important to my parents but I don't know their connections. My parents, Edwin and Jeanne Kramer met when they worked at Braniff Airlines in San Antonio, Tx. I'm wondering if your aunt has a copy of this wedding announcement. If she doesn't I could try to send it. If she does then it's not so urgent. Thanks for your help. (I searched her sister on Ancestry and found a Find A Grave listing for her and so found you!)

Oak Hill Cemetery
Hi Tom,

Wanted to thank you for all the volunteer work you have put into setting up the memorials for all our ancestors that are buried at Oak Hill and the other cemeteries in Goliad.

Also, I was wondering since you from the Goliad area do you know of any original records that may be available or that have been found from the Undertakers that provided services for Goliad County back in the late 1800s and early 1900s
because of the devastating tornado that destroyed so much at Oak Hill Cemetery, our Gibson Family plot has at least 7 grave sites that no longer have headstones, only markers letting us know someone is buried there and I am looking for any records that might shed some light on exactly who is buried there.

KINDest regards,

Nancy Hickman
