RE: Jessie L. Sexton
It would seem a little unusual for them to be in two separate cemeteries when they both seem to have died in June 1902, but maybe just where happened to have a plot available? Are you in a position to be able to check either of these cemeteries in person? I have copied your memorial into my source notes. Perhaps the person who did the other memorial would like to post your articles? thanks

Uncle Bob was only married once and that was to Sarah Elizabeth "Lizzie" Huffman on May 24, 1908 in Goldthwaite. They had twelve children together but could not get along and separated, never divorced, just separated. She came to his funeral, as did six of the the kids who were still alive.

Roscoe and Ruby had two children. Anita Faye was born May 31, 1941 in San Luis Obispo County, CA. She married Stephen B. HALL on October 01, 1961 in Santa Clara County, CA. They had two kids I think. In 1964 they were living in Reno where he was the manager of a Sprouse Reitz store which was like a five and dime. No more info. The second child was a boy, David Rogers born August 27, 1945 in Alameda County, CA. He married Roxine J Caggioano on 28 Aug 1966 in Santa Clara County, CA. They had two kids also. In 1969, David was working for a company called Simpex in San Jose, CA according to a City Directory. I don't know where any of them are now. Give me your email and I will send you a family pic of Roscoe, Ruby, Anita, and David, if you don't already have a copy.

Wayne, It is good to hear from you. Ruby is not my sister. She is my mother's first cousin. Ruby's father Robert Lee Sheffield (Find A Grave Memorial# 49544186) is the brother of my maternal grandmother Ava Belle Sheffield Tefertiller (Find A Grave Memorial# 28823895). I don't know where Roscoe and Ruby are buried. I've attempted to locate the burial sites of all of Uncle Bob's 12 children and connect them though Find A Grave, but have only found six. If you discover the location, I would appreciate you letting me know. Do you know who the parents of Roscoe are? Are you related?

Wapo, parents for the above Tom Hall are John Hall 1805-1880 and Phoebe Gilley 1837-1880. Your tree is correct. gr

RE: burial place of Caney Cross (55276963)
You have a very interesting chain of reasoning, facts. I've been led astray, sometimes for years, by coincidences presented as documented, connected fact by people I trust, only to have it shown false when the supporting documentation surfaces.

If you're willing to write a concise summary of your chain, noting what is documented, meaning you have the documents to show, and what is
your supposition, I am willing to include it in the bio.

But I am not willing to present a familial connection as fact, when it has not been shown to be such.

RE: Alfred Hiemer # 98789927
Wayne - not sure who might have had the stone placed. I walk the cemetery a lot (for exercise) and when I see a new stone or new request I try to get a pic of it. Maybe the Meeker City Hall can help - their number is 405-279-3321.

RE: burial place of Caney Cross (55276963)

Thanks for your message. I don't think your Louisindia is related. I have the Federal census records for the Cross family from 1860-1910, and there is no one in their household with anything like that name during that period. The family had connections to Virginia and Missouri, but none that I am aware of in the Indian Territory.

RE: Selden Lindsey
Wayne: If you look again at pg 191, at the end of 2nd paragraph, Harrell states that Benjamin Williams died after 1850. This is correct. He's on the 1850 census of Saline Co. Ark. in home of his son Lott Green Williams, but is not on the 1860 census. In the spring of 2012 I spent two weeks at Ark. History Commission in Little Rock searching ten + years of the Arkansas Gazette issues searching for a death notice or obituary for Benjamin Williams, to no avail. I think by the time he died there was a more local newspaper that is not now extant. 1842 is the year that Benjamin Williams sold 40 acres, except that he exempted "five rods square whereon my graveyard is situated." (Saline Co. Ark Deed Bk B, pg 333.) Many family members pitched in -- after I located this old graveyard -- and eventually it was fenced and cleared, with crosses placed on the obvious graves, plaques erected, etc. It's known as the Williams-Tull Cemetery in the village of Tull; it's in the far back yard of the Evans home in Tull. Many locals that I spoke with knew exactly who was buried in this graveyard, yet the lady that put up the plaque listing the buried did make an error or two. Wish they had consulted closer with me -- I was just too far away geographically. Gloria Reck, Eureka, Calif.

RE: Lassie Willey
Hi Wayne and great to meet you here on findagrave. First, thank you for your service to our country! Thanks so much for the obituary for little Chloe. I have tried to look at the old Chandler newspaper but no one in town had copies of it. Now I'm confused because Chloe's article stated she's buried at Freeman Cemetery instead of New Zion. So I don't know what to do about that. I CAN view your tree at ancestry with the URL you sent. Thanks much! Is it a private tree? If so, I can delete your message off of findagrave if you want. Do you have anything more about Marina (Willey) Huffman? I would be interested in anything you have. I'm related to them through Lassie's Campbell family. Quite a few of them settled around Chandler and are buried at New Zion, including my great-grandfather Thomas Jefferson Campbell, who is buried not far from the Willey plot. Thanks again, Lynne

RE: Clematis
You didn't mention Clematis, it's on your profile :) Yes, when my sister and I were poking around the Davenport cemeteries, we went to the Victor cemetery and knew this. We went to the historical society first to gather all info we could find on old cemeteries around here. I think we spent several weekends driving back roads of Davenport hunting things down, walking through tall weeds in fields. We also were up around Prague, Chandler, Sac and Fox, Meeker, Sparks, Wellston. She has done some of the Boley cemeteries. Every now and then, she'll come across someone that tells her somemore history or where another abandoned cemetery is, and we head it. That was several years ago though, it's time for us to go again.

Added by shaun on Jan 06, 2017 8:21 PM

Interested in what you have on this Clematis you speak of? I think I remember something about this when my sister and I were running around Davenport a few years ago.

My sister and I also spent quite a bit of time in the back roads of Davenport visiting old cemeteries and learning about the things that used to be there. We added a cemetery that is on private land between Sparks and Davenport. We also spent a day in the Sparks Cemetery taking photos and logging names.

RE: Frisbie family in Oak Park Cem.
Yes, that article is what I saw. My sister and I get together and try to get to the old cemeteries that have been forgotten, or out of the way, or on people's properties and try to get them documented and photographed. So when the article came out, we read it and were glad to see someone had restored it! We just haven't visited it.

RE: Frisbie family in Oak Park Cem.
McCorckle is the old one up by the turnpike? I haven't been to it, but am familiar and familiar with the story of people cleaning it up and trying to preserve. Class of 94.

I will get these transferred. Just let me know if there's anymore,
