Charles Frase
I'm afraid Mr. Frase has no marker. He is buried in Chapel Hill Public Lot #2, Sp 1654. There are several thousand folks buried in this lot, but only a few hundred gravestones. All known gravestones in this lot have been added to Find A Grave. I attache a photo of the section. If you do not want it please feel free to delete. it. Thanks.

Eva Allen
I went to Laurelland cemetery today. I had a wonderful funeral director look up ALL the listings for me. The only Eva Allen that came up was Eva Mae Goerte (maiden name = Allen)husband is listed as Carl W. Goerte. I found this grave and have the pictures for you if this is the correct person. Same dates for birth & death. Let me know & I will add them for you.

M. M. Grantham b1826
I believe that your death date and place for M. M. Grantham is not correct. The following documents show that he moved to Texas after his wife's death. He is remarried and living next to two of his sons in 1900 in Collin Co. TX. He also joins the Robert E. Lee Camp of Confederate veterans in Tarrant Co. TX in 1903. He died in 1910 in Ryan, Jefferson Co. OK and is buried there as his his son Thomas J. Grantham.
Terral Weekly Times [transcribed by Anita Emberlin]
March 17, 1910
M. M. GRANTHAN, familiarly known as Grandpa Grantham, died on Saturday, March 12 at the age of 85 years. Old age and general debility was the cause of death.
The decline in health began about 6 months ago shortly after Mr. Grantham came to visit his grandchildren.
Mr. Grantham was a member of the Methodist Church. He was also a member of the Masonic lodge under who auspices the funeral was conducted. He had been a member for 60 years.
Interment was in the Ryan Cemetery where the wife of the deceased is buried.
Mr. Grantham leaves three sons, one at Ryan and two at Milburn, Oklahoma and several grandchildren, many of whom live in Ryan.

Resolutions on the Death of Geo. C. Ward--Memorial Day Discussed
Rev. I. Z. T. Morris, by invitation, offered prayer in the opening of Lee camp, United Confederate Veterans, yesterday afternoon.
The following members were admitted into the camp: J. A. McGregor, who was a private in company E, Fourth Georgia regiment, army of North Virginia; J. H. Spencer, company B, Morgan's battalion; M. M. Grantham, captain company B, Forty-third Georgia regiment and J. M. West, company G, Young's cavalry.
The committee designated to draft resolutions on the death of George C. Ward, reported as follows: Whereas, Time's reaper, whose scythe cuts down all, both great and small, has laid low the manly form of another of our trusted comrades, George C. Ward, who died April 22, 1904. We deem it most befittinhg that we pause for a moment, drop a tear in tribute to the memory of a departed hero.
George Ward was born in Yellowbusha county, Miss., October 1946. In December, 1863, he joined company H, Fifteenth Mississippi regiment, infantry. . . .

Tarrant County TX GenWeb
The Robert E. Lee Camp #158 of
Confederate Veterans, Fort Worth, Texas
Compiled by Barbara Knox
The Camp was established in August 1890 in Fort Worth, and group met regularly on Sunday afternoons at the Tarrant County Courthouse. This information was abstracted from the original Descriptive Lists, with additional material added if available. Each veteran joining the camp completed a form showing his name, age date of enlistment and unit in which he served. Unfortunately, many felt that no one would be interested in their war service, and information given, in some cases, was extremely sparse. Those veterans signing the 1900 Roster gave only their names and the unit in which served. This information has been supplemented with other cited sources. The Camp was officially disbanded in 1934. SCH indicates member received the Southern Cross of Honor. All cemeteries mentioned are located in Fort Worth unless otherwise indicated. Additions/corrections will be appreciated.

RE: John P Alexander ~ Oaklawn
You're very welcome ..

However, as a caution, just because someone may have created a Find A Grave memorial doesn't mean that your loved one is at rest in a particular cemetery ... nor that there is a plot marker for them if they are at rest there.

Nevertheless, I wish you a good and successful search.

John P Alexander ~ Oaklawn
Dear Gretchen ...

No ... the John P Alexander @ Oaklawn is the son of John P McAlexander and Laura Ann (Greer) Alexander ... dob 8-13-1901 & dod 1-1-1937.

John Pennington Alexander (Laura's husband ... 1865-1911) apparently passed away before the family moved to Texas; and he reportedly lies at rest in the Red Banks Cemetery, Marshall Co, Mississippi (See Find A Grave #8311095) ...

James Miles McAleaxander (John Pennington's father ... 1827-1903)is reportedly at rest in Wesley Chapel Cemetery, Marshall Co, Mississippi (See Find A Grave #46674524)

Good luck ...

RE: Laura McAlexander ~ Oaklawn
You're very welcome ... glad to do it.

BTW ... there is no plot marker for John Alexander (1865-1911) in that lot; and there is no such listing in the published transcription inventory. There is a military service marker for John P McAlexander; but it only has a dod on it.
