RE: A Jarrell Barrett
This has become a passion for me as I am now photographing each cemetery I come to and recording the data on Find a grave from this digital file. I enjoy it and I hope some where down the line it helps someone learn a little more about their family. So Mr. Barrett it is a pleasure ! I added Arthur to A Jarrell Barrett's memorial, thanks ! Bren

RE: Harriet Fancher
As far as I know, her maiden name was Johnson. Her parents were Josiah and Priscella (Gallagher) Johnson. She was married to Johnson Fancher - so her maiden surname and husband's first name were both Johnson! :)

Harriet Fancher
Harriett Fancher was my 3rd great grandmother. As I don't know much about her (still researching), I can give you a missing piece of information. Her name was Harriett M. Johnson Fancher. She was born in 1823, although I do not know the exact date (yet). Her and Johnson were married Feb. 20, 1838. If you could update this information or transfer the 2 records to me, I would greatly appreciate it.

Harriett: #59461664
Thomas J. (son): #42388425

Mary seems to be inactive. You might want to send this to edit at Find A Grave. D & K

Weaver Cemetery, Shelby Co., TX

I see that you added three people with the surname Koonce to this cemetery. I suggest that you put them in the wrong cemetery. I beleive they may be in the Weaver Cemetery in Comanche County, TX

"Shelby County, TX in the Civil War" compiled by Katheryn Hooper Davis & Carolyn Reeves Ericson provides the following.

Koonce, Christopher C.
Born: 30 May 1833 Claiborne Parish, LA
Died: 24 March 1915 Gorman, TX
Buried: Weaver Cemetery, Gorman, TX
Spouse: Louisa A. Chandler, m. 23 December 1858 Nacogdoches Co., TX
Service: Co. K, Texas Volunteer Infantry. Enlisted 13 February 1862 at Rusk, TX, later in Co. A, 11th Regiment Texas Infantry.
Pension: Received small pension and 1280 acres of land in Comanche Co., TX
Parents: James Carol & Susan (Johnson) Koonce
Comments: One of his legs was shot off below the knee during the War. Confederate Land Grant in Comanche Co. #313 issued 12 August 1881.

RE: John Koonce
That was nice of you. Thank you once again. I guess over the years oral family history has gotten the cemetery mixed up. That figures!
Thank You,

Thank you for all your effort and time.
It may be that his headstone is gone also.
