Ernst and Augusta Kasper
Going west on US Hwy 290, the cemetery starts at Dallas Street. Turn into cemetery at second entrance. This is section 1 on the right. The first memorial is for August & Alma Kaltwasser. Ernst and Augusta Kasper's memorial is in this row. Keep driving south and it will be on the right.

I hope this is correct. I haven't been there in a long time, but I have the LEE COUNTY, TEXAS CEMETERIES, VOLUME NO. 2, dated 1991. The info above is from that book.

Good luck.

RE: Freeman and related families
Linda, I have worked for hours to get some things correct. Every once in a while I goof up. ha
If you send me your email, I will add you so you can go in and see what I have on the Freeman.
Ira and Bea were first cousins.
Ira and sister Laura Freeman were the 1/2 siblings of my grandmother, Annie Belle Jordan Walters. They had the same mother, Maggie Belle Lee Jordan Freeman.
Henry Wayne Riley Sr was apparently Henry Wayne Lourance/Lawrence. He took his stepdad's name.

Please let me know how these fit. If you want send me your email to

Freeman and related families
Don't knnow how I lost contact with you. I remember talking with you. I write notes when talking with someone and they disappear sometimes. I did not apparently enter you on the Freeman folder. Cant believe I did not see this site again. So much going on here at home as usual.I am hoping that between Buddy, you and that we can come up with more info. I have my info under Duncan Parr. I entered more yesterday after getting Buddy's note that I did not realize that I had not entered. Who were your parents? I too an interested in pictures. I feel like a Freeman somewhere might have a pic of my gr grandmother and John Morgan Freeman. It is also Buddy's great grandmom. Forgot how you fit in. Hoping to hear from you soon.

RE: Pictures
Hi Linda, Good to hear from you. All is well with me. I'm retired now after 35 years in law enforcement. I have some of my mom's pictures and will try and find some of your Dad. I'm pretty sure I saw some of him and Mavis. Not sure though on his parents. You can contact me at All the best!

Sherlocks Cousin
RE: Dillard Roy Pressley
Thinking here - can you smell smoke from a hard head burning that it was almost 5 yrs ago. I was just there in May, too. Ok - Based on his marker, he is under a bush & should be in the back area as there are a lot more bushes back there than in the front. There are 2 sections in the back (separated by a 'road').

The burials across the street from RODCO (furniture place) is what I call the front area. We pick up freight at RODCO and I go cemetery hopping while my husband waits to be loaded.

Another contributor has his parents in a different section but if you look at the parents' marker, it looks like a bush shadow to the left of the marker. Find the stand up Pressley marker and look to the left as he may be there. Let me know - I'm curious now:)

Alphonso Freeman
Alphonso Freeman's birthplace hasn't been nailed down, some sources say England and some say New York. No family history for him has been found. He was apparently orphaned at a very young age. He joined the Army in the 1830s at Detroit, Michigan and fought in the Seminole Indian battles in Florida. When the Mexican War broke out he was sent with his unit to Texas by ship, he fought in every major battle in that war from Texas to Mexico City. He was awarded a medal for bravery.
His unit, the 2nd Dragoons, was assigned after the war to establish a fort at the forks of the Trinity River. This was to become Fort Worth. Alphonso had the distinction of raising the US flag for the first time the day they selected the location (now downtown Ft Worth). He served for only another year or so and was discharged in 1850. He married a girl from a local family and had one daughter, that wife died and he moved to Weatherford where he met and married his second wife and had several more children, one being my great great grandmother, Mary. Weatherford was frequently attacked by Comanche Indians during that time and aided in defending the area which was natural with his Army background. When the Civil War broke out, he enlisted in the Confederate Army and spent the war defending the area against indian attacks which increased during the war years.
I have his discharge papers from 1850 and a couple of pictures somewhere.
This was all off of the top of my head as I am at work tonight.
