R. Wood LEWIS 1917-1918
Thank you for your photo of my Grand Uncle who died as a baby. Have not yet found any birth records, which may not have been filed, or newspaper articles about his birth.

It was so nice to finally resolve his death date and place. The fifth child born to his parents Serah Rosetta "Rosa" Maud (Wood) Lewis, daughter of Nelson Atwater Lewis and Nancy Jane Ballard, around Plano, Colline, Texas 1891, and Benjamin Harrison LEWIS (Mr. B.H. Lewis) of Rudy, Crawford County, Arkansas.

It seems "Rose", Mrs. B.H. Lewis, as found in newspaper article of her death and death certificate died after his birth March 30, 1917. He was born that Winter, no specific date yet available. He has four older siblings and five half-siblings were born to his father and stepmother in Oklahoma. He was born in Texas and his father remarried by December of 1917 and moved to Oklahoma, where he died, specific date unknown so far. Still looking...

I'm still working on collecting specific Memorial #'s to be added but haven't found the easiest way to do that, ie: worksheet. Let me know if you have any secrets to doing this easily.

1900 Census in Bonham, Fannin, Texas
1910 in Earlsboro, Pottawatomie, Oklahoma
30 Mar 1917 died in Ravenna, Fannin, Texas.

When did they travel from OK to TX and reason?

Additional Data
I have twice requested that this person's parents be listed on this site.

How do I get this done?

I shared your photo of Armelda Doretys headstone with the Find A Grave of her husband John Allen Dorety. They share a headstone and are my great-grandparents. I did give you credit for ownership of the photo. I hope that was alright, and I thank you so much for taking it.

You have the gravestone picture of Loyd Clayton and his wife Agnes on Floyd's memorial instead of Floyd and his wife Racheal Lucille Clayton. It's easy to see how a mistake could be made - names so similar.

James I would like to call attention to the fact that you mistakenly matched Nora Evelyn Ellis with William Jefferson Sexton Sr, instead of William Jefferson "W J " Sexton Jr. and Billy is Evelyn and W. J. Jr's son.Mistakes happen all the time. I have made many myself
