I visited Antioch Cemetery in Cooper county today. I have uploaded photos to your memorials for William and Nancy. If you have other memorials there--either ones you created or others in which you have an interest--I'll be loading more pics in the coming days.

Fred, do you happen to know why the burial stone photo posted on this memorial has the woman's last name as Cooper. I thought it was Downs.

My ancestor is Nancy Boren. Has there been additional research on this pioneer woman?

Thank you !!! Your efforts to create informative memorials is so valuable to all who come after you . You give me hope and so many avenues to pursue in researching the Haupts of Carbon county. THANK YOU !!!!!
|Timmy McKinney||RE: Correction to my previous message|
The name Slinker is most likely correct. I had seen that name before in a couple of places. One was the LDS website which probably got the information from the same marriage record you found. I am glad you found it.

Edward Long's Grave on Find A Grave
The Eighteenth Texas Cavalry, also known as Darnell's Cavalry Regiment, was organized at Dallas, Texas, on March 15, 1862.
If the Edward Long described on this stone died in 1859, before the Civil War began, I don't see how this could be the same person as Edward the son of John Long.
Please enlighten me. Edward Long is in our direct line, too and we have been trying to make some headway with info on him and his wife.
Thanks so much. Judy Gautier
|Rebecca Wright||James Rankin Goodall|
Thanks for responding...I have the info about their marriage, etc. I wrote a bio on Louisa's memorial page if you want to check it out!Mem.#28488726. There was a family story that James had been shot, or something like that, but I've never been able to confirm or deny the story, so it remains a mystery as to his early death.
If I ever do find any further info on James , I'll be sure and let you know!
|Rebecca Wright||RE: Louisa M. Harrison|
Thank you for adding the link, I appreciate it. I was wondering if you have any information about James Rankin Goodall? I have been working on my family history for many years and have never found any information about why he died so young, at just 25. He and Louisa had only been married a little over a year.
