RE: Cecil Nellums, Joseph Nellums, Dorian Penton
If you can it would be nice to have them listed so if someone wanted to pay their respects they could find area.
That is a huge cemetery.
Thanks again.
I wonder how many other people have changes that aren't listed.

Anniei Hinote Boyington
Hi Donna,
Yes, its been a while since we've talked. I have added the mother and father of Annie Hinote Boyington. I no longer transfer memorials of my relatives to other relatives. (please dont take offense), but I did that once, against my intuition, and found out later that the lady wasnt even related...... However, I know in your case, you are related. But, Annie and Alto are related on my mom and dads side..

Thanks, Etta

Jane Bowen Hardin & Wes
A new book, A Lawless Breed, John Wesley Hardin, Texas Reconstruction, and Violence in the Wild West will be in the bookstores by Mid May, 2013. This hardbound book is published by University of North Texas Press, Denton, TX; is 512 pages with 83 photos. Authors' are Chuck Parsons and Norman Wayne Brown.
This biography covers the complete life of John, his wife Jane, siblings, cousins, parents, etc. How many men did Wes Kill? Did he really kill a man for snoring? Was he murdered in El Paso or was it a gunfight? Who laid claim to his possessions? Who obtained the rights to his autobiography? Finally, what was Jane Bowen Hardin's cause of death? Illness? Burned to death in her house? or?
Census records indicate she was born in 1857 or 1858 yet her headstone reflects 1856. That is one thing that remains a mystery!

RE: Cecil Nellums
Thanks. I posted my two photos on the memorials. Do you think she was buried at Muscogee? I'm pretty sure that Bascom and Mollie Evans are buried at Crary next to Mr. Hoppe, who was Gertrude Evans' (my great grandmother) first husband. Mr. Hoppe is next to Margaret Miles Williams, Mollie's mother.

Cecil Nellums
I've transferred the memorial to you. I'm interested in information on Leona since all I have is a DOB- which I cannot account for. I have a photo of Cecil with his cousin, Mary Lee Bryars Gilmore, and of Leona with two of her sisters.
