Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my family genealogy, off and on, for @ 25 years. I am stumped though when it comes to my Myers branch in Tennessee/Alabama.

Any info would be greatly appreciated! Mt. Carmel Cemetery in Huntland, Franklin County, TN is at the top of my list... It's one of my last hopes to finding any clues to my elusive 3g-grandfather.

obituary for Rev. Elisha Mathis
Hello. I am researching the Mathis family of Gibson County, TN and Rusk County, TX.

I am looking for a family Bible record listing Elisha Mathis with son Cyrus E. Mathis, or obituaries for either father or son, naming the other.

I need an obituary of Elisha Mathis, died 1883 in Rusk County TX that names his son, Cyrus E. Mathis who predeceased him in 1877, buried in Gibson County, TN.

Or an obituary of Cyrus E. Mathis, that names his father, Elisha Mathis.

If you can direct me to where I might access these documents I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks. Kathie Heller

RE: Incorrect information
I'm sorry - I just signed on today, and do not know how this works. I do not want any administrative responsibilities, but would not mind updating these two if that is what you are suggesting.
Thank you for the quick reply!

Incorrect information
First, thank you for your hard work!

For Memorial #50172286 - James William Myers:
His Texas Death Certificate states DOB as 4 July 1893, not 7 July, 1893. His Father is incorrectly listed on the Death Certificate as John W. Myers. His father's name was John Benjamin Myers.
James William Myers' birth date (according to all family records, the Myers Family genealogy book, what he told his children prior to his death, and his headstone itself,) should be 4 July 1878 His mother died 12 Feb 1892, so we know for certain that the Death Cert birth year is incorrect.

For Memorial #50172889 - Francis E. Myers:
Her name is misspelled on her headstone. For your records, it should be Frances (Frances Eva Wareham Myers).

Other children of this couple, and who are buried at the same location:
Ronald Wayne Myers 21 Feb 1945 to 21 Feb 1966
Jocelyn Aileen Myers Holman 14 Nov 1924 to 5 June 1995
Gloria Frances Myers Pursel 4 June 1928 to 3 May 2012

A fourth - James Wareham Myers 2 Apr 1935 to 9 Mar 2015, is buried in the Memorial Garden of the St. Matthew's Episcopal Church, Austin, TX

James William Myers and Pearl Alice Musgrove had four sons, all of whom are buried in the Birmingham, AL area.

Again, thank you for your hard work!

First I want to thank you for your time and efforts in obtaining and publishing the photos of the Crow family. In the photo of the multiple grave sites, there appears to be a fourth grave, would you happen to remember who that is? Thanks!

William C. Bolton 91525566
My name is Sandra Bolton Vlasin and I am trying to cross-reference my grandfather, William Curtis Bolton b. 28/9/1889/d.27Nov.1971. He was married to Goldie Fox who I found in Salem Cemetery, Troup,Smith Co. Tx without any info. My info says that William Curtis was buried in Bethel Cemetery Henderson TX. I did not find a memorial in that location, so I made one and requested a photo. Now I am wondering if your William C. Bolton is not my man. Do you have any more info about him? Probably not, or it would be on the memorial. The birthdate is so close I am inclined to think they are the same William Bolton. Any comments would be welcome. Blessings, sandrav.
