george washington gardner (sr)
hi, mr craig, i noticed that you had george washington gardner,born 1861,listed with a grave site. have you ever seen a grave for his father, george washington gardner, born feb 13, 1818, died in 1890. he and his family lived for many years at post oak island, williamson co, tx. but there is no graveyard in what was formerly post oak island. i have searched and searched and cannot locate this grave. the father was married to mary jane ennis , widowed, and then married a widow named
ann s youngblood. the 1890 census is unavailable so no help there. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thomas Joseph O' Connor #14115401
Dear Mr. Craig;
The above subject person's wife (you mentioned Mollie) is one of my Great-grand fathers sisters.
She was Mary Louise Hill and her family owned a farm near Manor and many are buried in the Manor cemetery. I have been unable to locate Mollie Louise Hill O'Connor (as she preferred to be called.)

Since you knew she was married to Thomas I am hoping you will have some information on her final resting place. I can then link her with the rest of her siblings and her Parents.

Thanx for any help you can regards , Ed White

Cottle's in McDade
Hello Curtis, I am not sure if you are familiar with McDade Cottle history, if you are perhaps you can help determine how my grandfather Wilbur Cottle is related to George Osborn Cottle. They are both buried in McDade Cemetery. Take a look at their birth and death dates. Very odd. Thanks,

William Cottle

Buffalo Cemetery
Hi Curtis, I am wondering if the cemetery you took a picture for is the one Hwy 152 between Sweetwater and Sayre, OK. I was there and have an uncle buried there. The picture is the same as the one you posted for Buffalo Cemetery in Sayre, Beckham Co. There is another listing for Buffalo Cemetery in Roger Mills Co. that has NO burials. Do you know if there are two cemeteries by the same name? Looking at Google maps, the one I went to IS IN Beckham Co. Thanks so much. Carol

Jemima Mima Davis Erwin
Curtis, Mima was the sister to my Great Grandfather Martin Van Buren Davis, the first child of Jonathan Patrick Jr and Mary Ann Eggleston. Martin married Sarah Erwin. I am currently researching Jonathan Patrick Sr. and Frances Ross. Do you know where Jonathan Sr. is buried?

Thank you.

Sam Houston Mundine
Hi Curtis,
I am Titus Mundine's granddaughter. When I was 12 years old, I was visiting Aunt Annie and Aunt Birdie in Elgin, and copied the following letter written to Aunt Annie by Lily Mundine Hays, daughter of William Howard Mundine, and Laura Alice Mundine. Enjoy. -Shirley Johnson

With Love

Your Cousin

Dear Folks,

I believe you are Annie.

Hello Dear,

We enjoyed the day so much. I feel it is a rare opportunity for all of us to get together and build a better knowledge of each other.

I must tell you before writing more, I can't spell. I cannot get the sound of the word. When I was younger I had my dictionary beside me and looked up words. Later, after my husband was home I depended on him to spell for me. Now I hope one can guess what I mean.

About forty years age, or longer, Uncle Charley and Aunt Lidy, Aunt Net and Uncle Will, Mother and my step-father Mr. McCullough, and Horace spent the day at the Mundine cemetary, and put the fence up that is there. I believe Aunt Mary and Bennie and Hallie were there, that I am not sure. I was there with my two children. They were very small and it seems so long ago.

We children called our grandparents by first name as on both sides they were Mundine. Grandpa Titus was Senator of Texas when Sam Houston was president of Texas, and he went to the home of Grandpa Titus and Grandma Catherine and their baby was in the cradle. He asked them what the baby was named. They said "We have not named him yet." The president took him up out of the cradle and said, "Well, I will give him my name. He is named 'Sam Houston' by me."

I am sure his mother and father felt great pride in what he, the president, had done, for I felt that mother showed, in telling it, a great pride.

I liked one week being a year old when my father died. I went to Aunt Cornelia and Grandma Catherine's funeral. Can just remember them.

Hope all of you are feeling fine. You will find a check for twenty-five dollars enclosed to help in any way on the cemetary.

Clem Edwards
Hi, Curtis ~ I'm interested to add your knowledge about Clem H Edwards to what very little I know. His first wife, Mary Dicy Taylor Edwards, was my grandmother's sister. Since your father's half-brother was an Edwards, you are probably related to Clem. I'll look forward to hearing more. Thanks. Mary Caye
