Bio Photo There is so much history found in the graves of this great country. I have always had an interest in the stories found in the old graves in the isolated pastures and small graveyards located across the West. It is my pleasure to be a part of a group doing organized research that helps all interested people to further their knowledge in this field.

RE: Louis Shobert
I am just now getting around to thanking you for linking him to his father.
It is much appreciated.

Your welcome. I thought they deserved to be remembered. A lot of those people lived in tents in what must of have been miserable conditions. I found many who died were returned to their hometowns. But these apparently were alone or their families moved on.

There were a lot of oil boom towns in Texas that faded away.

You're quite welcome. I was very curious myself as to what was written on the top of that stone!

I am so glad to be able to help. I almost gave up trying to locate their spot (I'd gone through each wing of the mausoleum) when I realized there were spaces on the outside east wall. Hurray! I'm glad you liked my poem. :)

Elizabeth Morris Wood
Hello, Perry!

I'm hoping you can help me with a mystery!

I found my great-great grandmother, Zilbreath Clemmons Burge, in the 1850 US Census in Red River, Texas, USA, living with an Elizabeth Wood. I believe this Elizabeth Wood is your great-great grandmother: Elizabeth Morris Wood. My widowed great-great grandmother was listed in her household, and the census taker had mistakenly, I'm assuming, listed my great-great grandmother's last name as Wood, as well...and, most of her younger children are in the household, as well - all listed as members of the Wood family. Here is the data from that census:
Zetilda Wood in household of Elizabeth Wood, "United States Census, 1850"
Name: Zetilda Wood
Event Type: Census
Event Year: 1850
Event Place: Red River county, Red River, Texas, United States
Gender: Female
Age: 50
Race: White
Race (Original):
Birth Year (Estimated): 1800
Household ID: 265
House Number: 265
Line Number: 37
Affiliate Name: The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA)
Affiliate Publication Number: M432
Affiliate Film Number: 914
GS Film Number: 444917
Digital Folder Number: 004206181
Image Number: 00078
Household Gender Age Birthplace
Elizabeth Wood F 50 South Carolina
Zetilda Wood F 50
Jeremiah Wood M 26 Tennessee
Lewis Wood M 23
Buford Wood M 24
Nancy Wood F 10
Jane Wood F 9
Thimbly Wood M 13 Tennessee
Leonidus Wood M 11
Leonidus, listed here, is my great-grandfather. His full name was Leonidus Titus (L.T.) Burge. The boy listed as "Thimbly" - his actual name was Kinly or Kinley.

I was wondering if you happened to know what link there was between these two widowed women and how they came to occupy the same household in 1850? I cannot find a link between Zilbreath Clemmons Burge & Elizabeth Morris Wood. Zilbreath was married to my great-great grandfather, Jeremiah Burge, on February 20 1816 in Rutherford, Tennessee, USA.

Do you know what this connection was?

I love a mystery..and, the history that goes with it! :)

Please let me know your thoughts...

A permanent marker is now at the grave of John Bell. I've uploaded a photo to his page.
