There is another memorial (# 114238598) showing James E Nelson with almost the same dates, the info I received for his burial is from a book of cemetery inscriptions of Montague County, Texas published in 1998. In this book it has James E. Nelson buried in Freeman Cemetery which is about 5 miles south of Forestburg. There is no reference of James F. Nelson or any other Nelsons in Bean Cemetery which is 4 miles west of Forestburg. Now in this book there is a James Franklin Nelson, Wife Ora Frances Howbee (Holybee) Aug. 27, 1835-Apr. 30, 1876 buried in New Harp Cemetery which is located 1/2 mile south of Freeman Cemetery.
