Chili Ray Porche
Hi Karen,
I posted a photo of Chili Ray and Patsy Jean Thomasson Porche's headstone. They are buried in Edna Texas not Vanderbilt Texas. You may want to correct it on Find a Grave

Picture request @ Forest Park Cemetery in Houston
I see you added a picture request for Fred Westerfield & Victor Koehler @ Forest Park Cemetery in Houston. If you would call the cemetery at 713-928-5141 and get a "SECTION" and "LOT" I will try to get the picture you want. This is a very large (225+) acre cemetery and without a location would be very hard to find.

Thank you,
Cecil Vaden Jr

RE: Dwight Stewart
Hi, no problem. It was an interesting account in the book. As far as whether he was shot by a policeman. That was never mentioned. The death certificate does state that he was shot during a mob riot. But with over 13,000 people in the streets (the event was actually organized by the local Klan to begin with), word got around to the Sheriff beforehand and he and his men went out to meet them in the streets that night. After the mob had hurled bottles and bricks at the deputies and several attempts to rush through the lines to get to the jail, and fire hoses were turned on the crowd, the initial gunfire actually started coming from the mob to begin with from a nearby building, ( Sheriff Marshall being the target at first).

Excerpt from the book is as follows.

"A staccato of gunfire erupted from a nearby building. Marshall's hat flew from his head as a trickle of blood appeared above his left eye. He wiped the blood from his eye and drew his pistol. Marshall turned to Will (Fritz) and pointed his pistol toward the second floor where the gunfire was coming from. Fritz fired a short burst of machine gun fire at the building, over the heads of the crowd. Sheriff Marshall motioned for a megaphone.
"Cease fire, hold your fire." Sheriff Marshall bellowed through the megaphone, "We are bringing more machine guns and grenades into place. If anyone makes a hostile move, the deputies are instructed to shoot to kill--I mean business; now, take care of your wounded and go on home."

In all that confusion, it's no telling who was shot by who.

RE: Deborah Williams Warren
Hi Karen ~

If you mean Mrs. Deborah Warren, interred at the Forest Hills Cemetery in Jamaica Plain, (Boston) MA, I can blow it up enough to clearly read "died 1749 at (I think) 82." I would say I'm about 95% sure of the 82.

I hope this helps. If not or if you have other questions, don't hesitate to contact me again.

RE: Sarah Sally Blevins Burke
Hi Karen,

Sarah Burke 0000-1914

The only engraving on that stone other than the name is her death date, no birth date.

At the bottom of that stone is a hand engraved message XXXX Heaven, which was cut into the stone by someone other than the stone mason, that part is hard to read, I'm guessing at what it reads as I can only make out XXXX XeaXen, so I would say that is heaven.

Her name is spelled Sarah Burk.

Hope that is of help to you!
Have a very happy holiday!
