Your very welcome! I only know that Campground is located at the community of Montongo. It was organized in 1843 and was the first church in Drew County. I wasn't able to located the name Dyer (Dyar) in my cemetery index book, but that may mean it is an unmarked grave or the headstone may have been in bad shape at the date of printing this book. Is this your 2x grandmothers married name?

RE: Chada and Beseda
Resend me her information and I will run back out tom and chalk it as I did the others. Chalking not only cleans the headstone but it also brings out all the lettering. I thought I had done it with that one also. I had plans on going out in the morning so I can redo it for you.

I tried to find your relatives grave - but had no luck. I am so sorry. My husband and I walked the cemetery for over 2 hours. It does list him being buried there. I am going to contact an individual who works at the bank nearby that is on the board.

And, if you look at the online site for Bayou Meto - it shows him as being the son of a Butler - not Fendley?

Post from Bayou Meto website: Fendley Jasper Payton 1874 1943 s/o James E & Sarah N Butler

I will let you know if I find anything. There has been some vandelism (? can't spell) there recently too. Hopefully it isn't one that was vandelized.

I also have a lot of relatives buried there.

Hope you have a Happy New Years!

RE: Welle Family
Hello! I've submitted the corrections of cemetery block and Elise's name to the original creator of the memorials (only the original creator may change the information).

It's amazing how much of a connection we have with our ancestors -- such as your name, etc.


Blessings Galore!

Ms. Shippen,

After I read your response, I did some more research - The family is not located in Section B of the cemetery - they are located in the Gill Sisters Block (this cemetery is fairly large).

I plan to make another trip to Marlin sometime this week; and, will be happy to try again!

Blessings Galore! :)

The Austin Genealogical Society ( has an excellent map of the cemetery on their website and an alphabetical list of burials which gives the section and plot numbers. If your relative lives in the area, would like to try again, and needs help, let me know.
