Thank you for creating the memorial for baby Basil Earl Edwards and for posting a photo of his headstone. I also appreciate your quick response to add his mother to his memorial.

James,

I've attached a copy of a death certificate to A.B. Kelley's memorial. The first name on the marker looks like it could be Arthur. The last name on the death certificate is spelled Kelly. If you don't think they're the same person let me know and I'll remove the death certificate.

Thanks,

Tim

In 1833 he began the same occupation in Choctaw County MS where he was among the pioneer settlers, then went to Chickasaw County, same state, and in 1848 came by wagon to Texas, having spent 13 days in the Mississippi bottoms on account of high water.

Roane. There was a small log school house located about 8 miles NE of Corsicana which was formerly called Post Oak School. Beginning about the year 1866 Rev. Leek who lived at Chatfield occasionally preached at this little log school house. As families moved into the vicinity the Rev. Leek organized a Baptist Church at this point and his congregation ws made up of the Beasley family which moved into the community as early as 1840, as well as the Conners who settled in this district about the year 1855. Joe and Ben Bragg and the Roscoe and Cohagen families also lived in this community.

Among the early settlers who located around Post Oak School were the Burke family and the families of the Beasleys, Braggs, Connors, Ellis and Fraziers. Settling of the community increased until, in about 1891, members of the community decided they needed a Post Office. Various named were offered but the name Roane, as suggested by Will Holland, was adopted.

Among the old homes which have a romantic past is the old Beasley home and springs, about 2 miles west of Roane. This historical landmark was familiar to travelers in the early days of the County and many a travel worn immigrant stopped here for fresh water and a few hours rest. Before the Post Office was located mail was distributed from the old Bragg home which was a short distance west of the Beasley home. Ben and Joseph Bragg married sisters who were daughters of the Beasleys.

Marker Text Thomas Conner and his family left Illinois and settled in this area in 1856. His son, Edward P., purchased 164 acres here in 1873. Though the first recorded burial was that of Minnie L. Conner in 1882, family tradition indicates the cemetery contains earlier interments. The cemetery was legally set aside by Edward Conner in 1882. It has primarily served the extended Conner family and contains the burials of at least four veterans of the War Between the States. The cemetery continues to serve the community and is maintained by Conner family descendants.

Marker Text Thomas Conner and his family left Illinois and settled in this area in 1856. His son, Edward P., purchased 164 acres here in 1873. Though the first recorded burial was that of Minnie L. Conner in 1882, family tradition indicates the cemetery contains earlier interments. The cemetery was legally set aside by Edward Conner in 1882. It has primarily served the extended Conner family and contains the burials of at least four veterans of the War Between the States. The cemetery continues to serve the community and is maintained by Conner family descendants.

St. Matthew Cemetery
James,

Disregard my previous message. After further checking it looks like I found what I'm looking for. The St. Matthew Cemetery is 1 mile NE of Carmine on Upshaw Rd and it's actually in Washington County, not Fayette County.

Thanks,

Tim
