Robert H. Cumby, Sr
Birth: Aug. 24, 1824 Charlotte County Virginia, USA
Death: Nov. 19, 1881 Sulphur Springs Hopkins County Texas, USA
Confederate Brigadier General. A planter, he was elected to represent Rusk county in the Texas legislature and served from 1859 to 1861. At the beginning of the Civil War, he raised an infantry company at Henderson and was elected its captain. When he discovered that the state orders called for a cavalry unit, he secured the horses and turned his unit into troopers. The unit became company B of the 3rd Texas cavalry. It served under General Ben McCulloch in Arkansas and Missouri during 1861 and 1862. Cumby fought in the Battles of Wilson's Creek and Pea Ridge and distinguished himself in combat. When the 3rd was reorganized on May 20, 1862, Cumby was elected its colonel. Soon thereafter, he resigned his commission and returned home because of bad health. In 1864, Governor Pendleton Murrah of Texas appointed Cumby a brigadier general of the 4th Brigade of Texas state troops. He commanded these reserve forces until the end of the war. After the war, he ran a grocery store in Sulphur Springs, Texas. (bio by: Thomas Fisher)
Mr . Ryan Petty is a History Teacher at Cumby High School he has also wrote a book, "The Life he Never Knew." It is based on the civil war. I work with Mr. Petty, He is young and a new father. He is a wonderful teacher and a really good guy. He does Civil War re-enactments all over the country and brings in his authentic clothing and weapons for the students to check out when they are studying the civil war. Jared Tremor graduated in 2006. He has since graduated college with a focus on becoming a teacher.

i saw your request on find a grave for Robert Cumby.
I work in Cumby,TX (teacher) and it is a very small town, that was named after Robert Cumby. They have his tombstone there in the Cumby Cemetery. I don't know have to transfer it to you, but I will try.

Your message requests a transfer. Which Memorial #, are you family to this memorial? I will be happy to transfer to family member.
After posting Tolula Hunter's headstone picture, I noticed you didn't have her whole death date on her memorial. Of course you now have it on the headstone, but for future research you can search the CADI from 1940-1997, free, on:

I forgot, the dates on some of the markers do not match what you have in the memorials. If I have added photos in error on any of the memorials, let me know and I will remove the photos. Best Regards, Greg.
|Greg Kimberley||Leas in Hampton Springs|
Hello, I will be adding photos for your Hampton Springs requests. You have entered some duplicates, so I am unclear on how you want to handle it. The two cemeteries at Hampton Springs are distinct and separated by a chain link fence that surrounds the Hampton Springs cemetery in front. It is well-cared for. The section that contains all the Lea family graves is outside the fence and is not mowed or otherwise taken care of. Some graves are flowered, and there are some signs of visits. I found other Lea markers there. I will put up all new names in the "African-American" cemetery, so my suggestion would be to move, merge, or delete your duplicated memorials to clean them up and keep them together in the "African-American" cemetery. I will also put up some Taylors, as the two families are obviously related, as well as some Jacobs. I hope this will help in your genealogy. If you want the higher resolution photos, I will need your email address. Best Regards, Greg.
|rebekahpaw||RE: Ester Ennis|
I was glad to upload Ester's tombstone picture for you. As far as I know, Buck is not buried there. There was a book that listed Fayette County Cemteries that was transcribed about 1958-1959. There was no listing county wide for Buck. The Newells who did the book have since passed on but there book is considered the best listing of burials up until about 1958. You could try and get in touch with someone from the Fayette County website at
and see if they know anymore. I am not related to the Ennis family and my family is more in Marion County. I am sorry to not have any more info for you, I know how hard it is to locate loved ones and there final resting place. Hopewell is not too remote of a cemetery, but there is no church located with it and I have no idea who is in charge of the upkeep. It is maintained and has recent burials so perhaps someone with Fayette County might have more info for you. You could also try the library at 1-205-932-6625. I will ask at the next Marion County Genealogy Society meeting a lady that works at the llibrary there in Fayette and see if she knows more about Hopewell. We meet the first part of October so I will let you know what I find out. If I can help you out with other photos or info here in Marion or in Fayette County, just let me know and I will try my best to get it for you.

I am sure that the admins will be happy to transfer the memorials. Cheryl would definitely have wanted them to go to family.
Cheryl's passing was extremely unexpected. I will give your condolences to her family.
