RE: Jennie Shaw's Parents
Hi Patricia, Jennie Marie is linked to her parents, Bruton McCoy and Mary Jane Murphree Tidwell, who are buried in the Midlothian Cemetery in Midlothian, Ellis Co, Texas. Jennie Marie is buried in the Ferris Memorial Park North Cemetery in Ferris, Ellis Co., Texas. Jennie, called "Marie", was my aunt, sister to my dad, Linnie Howard Tidwell.
Is this what you needed. Let me know. You can email me at

RE: Sarah J Morrison Harvey
Good afternoon,
I was at the museum this afternoon and in the newsletter the front page was a story about the marker in question. They were able to locate it. The person that had found it in the basement of the courthouse in 1990 had taken it home to his house since nothing could be located about it at the time. Fast forward to a meeting this April when the archivist at the museum made a statement about the marker. Two members of the museum went to the house where the person had lived who had found it lived. It was found under a tree that was overgrown with weeds. It is currently in the vaults at the museum until the Harvey family can come and get it. Thanks for your help in the matter. Glad that this one had a happy ending for the family.

Patricia, Thank you so much for all that you do for this sites, your efforts are appreciated by many.

Thought you would want to know that there are two memorial pages for Mr. Wilson. I sent a note to Teresa around the first of June. Perhaps you could convince her to merge the two pages.

His wife, Betty and I are in the same Sunday school class here in Waxahachie.

Thanks again for all your hard work.

RE: Sarah J Morrison Harvey
Just looked up the person from the Harvey family that I had talked to. She is also the person who has downloaded pictures of the family on various Harvey Find A Grave pages. I talked to Carol Sue Harvey Heath.

RE: Sarah J Morrison Harvey
I was able to locate someone from the Harvey family back in December. I let her know that the marker was suppose to be at the courthouse complex somewhere. I did not know where it was stored. The article from the newspaper was from approx. 25 years ago. Relative came down and talked to Bastrop County people. I got in trouble for trying to help out and left the museum shortly after contacting the Harvey family. I do not know what has happened since then. There was a distant family tie to the Harvey family and a family in Bastrop. I do not think that this is why the marker got to Bastrop County, but I thought it was interesting that both women were named Sarah Jane.

Good Morning!

According to your information on Find a Grave, #64533562, re. Jonathan Pierce Stubbs (1850), my great-great-grandmother may be either Sarah Ann McFarland (1825) or Sarah Ann Smith, I am trying to determine which is most likely.

Any help will be VERY MUCH appreciated.

Cliff Layton,

I will try to explain this the best I can. I volunteer at the Bastrop County Historical Museum. Sometime ago a tombstone was found while work was being done in courthouse/jail. It is the tombstone of Mrs Harvey. Dates match up with what is still readable. We do not know how it got to Bastrop County. This what it says.
"Sarah, wife of W C Harvey, born Dec 22, 1849, died Oct 4 1899. Mother, thou hast from us flown to the regions far above. We to thee erect this stone consecrated by our love"
Tombstone is being stored I believe at the county court house.
Please get back to me. This stone sounds like it was removed from your cemetery in Ellis County.
