Round Timber Cemetery - Rouswell
The marker of Audrey Rouswell has been updated with a death date Oct. 6, 2011.

I have a photo and will post it soon on your photo request at Round Timber Cemetery, Baylor County, TX.

My husband is the secretary/Treasurer of the Round Timber Cemetery Association, and we have an annual reunion down there with other families of the community.

Hope this helps!

Thank you. I had this transferred to me and I never corrected it. Their daughter, Mary W. Griffith, was the 1st wife of my great grandfather, Levi Jenkins.
I am, however, kin to the Griffith's. My great grandmother was Lamargia Griffith Smith, married to Andrew Hosmer Smith.
Sidney is my 3rd great granduncle. His brother, Reuben, is my 3rd great grandfather.

I also just noticed it is a duplicated. Whomever Mulder was duplicated him/herself.
This is the original one:

RE: S N Mashburn (Washburn) - Smith's Chapel United Methodist Church Cemetery
I changed the S. N. to "S. M." because what looks like an "N" at first, does not match the other N's on the maker but does match all the M's in the words Memory and March. Also the "7" in in the death date is not clear and could be a "9".
Thanks, Johnny

Good afternoon.

I see that you are a 5th granddaughter of Peter. I was curious if you had proof as to him being the father of Jacob Rees, Sr, who died in Muskingum County, Ohio.

Thank you,

RE: Beebe
You're very welcome, Sherry. I still have work to do on the earlier line of this family (have a lot of it but I found out a year or so ago that I had the wrong line for my direct ancestors - I was researching the wrong son of John Beebe and Rebecca Ladd).

Need to get back to that when I have time.
