Jacob Gibson Hart
His parents were John Hart from NC and Angelina Curry from MS. I have yet to find where they are buried. Their last child was my gr grandmother Letha Ann Hart who later married Thomas M. Maddux. She was born in 1843 in Mississippi. I can't find them on the 1850 census and then in 1860 Letha shows up living with her brother Jacob Gibson Hart in Bossier Parish, LA. In 1870 she's living with her Uncle Peter Curry in Claiborne Parish, LA. She married Maddux in 1875 and in 1880 they're in Shreveport, Caddo Parish, LA. My grandfather Joseph Marmaduke Maddux, was born in 1882. By 1890 Letha appears on the special census for veterans and their widows and there's obviously no mention of Thomas Maddux. I can't locate a death for him either - just family rumors which seem to haunt the Harts and Curry's. Letha died and is buried in El Paso, TX. All her death cert says is her father was a Hart and her mother a Curry.

RE: Grave Photo Request
Thank you so much for allowing me to use your photos!!

In regards to family in ARK and OK.

My great grandfather was Francis Marion Cox who by 1870 was living in Scott County, Ark. A few years later I believe it became Logan County. He was one of 11 children, 3 of which died in childhood, some married and stayed in Ark while some returned to Texas where they had lived before moving to AR.

He and wife Nancy Jane Harp had 13 children, 5 of which died by age 18.
Of the remaining, my grandmother Bertha Mabel Cox married a Mallie Harwood Craig who was born and grew up in Sebastian County near LaVaca. Bertha was grandpa Craig's second wife and my grandmother, his first wife was a "Little" and at the time of marriage was living in Sebastian Co. They had 4 children, 3 of which lived until adulthood. Bertha and Mallie lived in Haskell County Oklahoma where 9 more children were born, 3 of which died in infancy. My mother Ella Mae was born in 1922 in or near Hoyt, Haskell, OK.
My mother and all of her siblings and 1/2 siblings are now deceased. Mother's siblings married into Moreland (2), Clayton, Wickersham, Green and Hamlin (2) families that I think were from around there, while my mother married a NE boy she met in DC during the 1940s.

Whole lot of other names that Cox and Craig siblings married into.

Do any of these connect with your families or family friends and acquaintenances?

Cynthia, Are you researching the Hart family? My great grandmother was Jacob Gibson Hart's sister.

Andrew J. Harris
Hi Cynthia; Thank you for your many contributions to Findagrave. Your memorials to the Harris family, in Montgomery Co., Texas have been extremely helpful in my research of the extended Davis family. You seem to have made an error when you requested that Andrew J. Harris (Find A Grave#41213018) be attached to John Wesley and Lydia Jane Harris. Andrew J. Harris was born in 1838 and died in 1896; thus he could not be their son. I believe that, Jack Harris, Find A Grave#11514223 is the person who should be linked to them. If you have any interest in my Davis research, contact me: I freely share.

Thanks for the reply, Arthur's dad Nicholas came from Nebraska also, their fathers might have been cousins. Thanks for the reply

RE: Dry Creek Cemetery
Cynthia I wish we had met a long time ago and that Find A Grave had been around then. I started doing my family tree back in 1985 or there about. My parents divorced before I was 4 so I had very little knowledge on my fathers side of the family. Mother told me what she knew and pointed out those related to me at Dry Creek. She knew many of the Harris's and I went to school with Roy, Ove, Little Henry (I still think he has the most beautiful brown eyes!) I moved to Houston in January 1952 so lost touch with my Lang relatives -- I did reconnect with Aunt Delia and Aunt Eva, but really did not get much information from either of them. Aunt Delia was having a very bad time with her back and I did not want to bother her with questions. The few times I got to visit Aunt Eva we did not talk family very much. She took my mother, brother and me to visit her son, Rodney, and had a great time, but he does not know much family history as when Aunt Eva was in the hospital and dying he called me for family information needed for her death certificate, but failed to call me back to let me know she had died. My sister in law, Hazel, called him to see how Aunt Eva was and he told her at that time she had died 2 weeks before. I never found an obituary for her, but know she is buried at Dry Creek and I am sure Rodney put up her stone.

I was in Conroe to attend Aunt Delia's 100th birthday celebration when she died and went to her funeral.

I was also in Conroe and attended one of the Harris Family Reunions with my sister in law. Sibbie and Mary Etta were there. Had a great time and a lot of family history was shared.

I have some obits that I hope to add to Find A Grave. I do not know how to contact someone in charge of the memorials at Dry Creek for the 2 ladies that have died that control them --- I could link many of them if I could. More later

Cynthia, I have a lot of information on the Harris's at Dry Creek. I can help you with some of it as my father's sister and a brother married into the Harris family. I went to school in Conroe with several of the Harris boys of the 1940's - 50's.

Cynthia, Lottie Florence Harris married my father's brother, Claude George Lang. Uncle Claude died in 1981 in AZ ~~ I cannot locate a grave for him however I have found Lottie's in Ajo AZ.

I have a lot of information on the Harris's buried at Dry Creek (Montgomery Co TX) that I will gladly share as my father's sister also married a Harris from Montgomery Co.

If anyone can help me find uncle Claude's grave site I would be most grateful.
