RE: Bonnie Hall
Here is my info on Bonnie Hall. I will keep looking for her actual dates of birth and death and her second husband's burial and will let you know if I find anything. Do let me know if you come across those dates. Probably the only way is in person at the archive of the Houston Chronicle!

Bonnie Mae Kerr married Robert Lee Barclay (10 August 1909-21 December 1968; buried Evergreen Memorial Park, Crockett, Texas, USA); Bonnie Mae and Robert Lee Barclay divorced: source for divorce: death certificate of Robert Lee Barclay; Bonnie Kerr married Stanley V. Hall (05 October 1899; died 22 June 2001 in Houston, Harris, Texas, USA; unknown burial in TX) on 26 December 1978 in Harris county, Texas, USA; they had no issue.

warmest regards, jaeren

Bonnie Kerr Barclay Hall
Hello again,

I am asking for your help this time with the birth and death dates for Bonnie. I know that she was born 1910 and died (probably June) 1998 as her Houston Chronicle obit lists that much. But, I cannot access the actual obit so have no dates. Any help that you can give is much appreciated.

warmest regards, jaeren

Nora Bell McComb Hallmark
Hello again, I noted that I made a typo-mistake with Sarah Virginia "Jennie" Pool Mathews: she died in 1950 - not 1850. Many apologies...

Thank you for the further data that you have listed for William Pool, Caroline English Pool, etc., and for the work that you are doing...

warmest regards, jaeren

RE: Welcome
Hi Carol, Thanks for the welcome note.
Would you remove your picture of the headstone for Earl Newton in Antioch Cemetery you posted. That one is for his son.
Are you located in Lovelady where the deer feeders are on 230. If so I'd like to stop by one day and chat some.

William Mansel
Is there a tombstone at Ebenezer for Mr. Mansel? I don't remember seeing one for him when I surveyed the cemetery. Did he fight in the Civil War and if so under what name? Just trying to give him credit for his services as it has been brought to my attention that I did not list all the Civil War Veterans that are buried there. That was bad as my own Great-grandfather was one of them. Thanks!

Jane Newton
Jesse Allen Davis
Jesse Allen's date of birth was Oct 14, 1949. Allen spent a lot of time with my grandmother, Edna Earl Scott Jones. Allen's mother came and got him from Granny's house and a couple days later, Granny got the call that Allen had drowned in a mud puddle. I have not seen a death certificate yet, but this is the story we have been told for years.

In reviewing the headstone for Houston Betts
#9167656, I noticed the type written information shows he died in 1936. But if you look at the date on the headstone in shows 1935. I thought you may what to update the page.

John Wesley Kelley
Thank you Carol for the parent links.

I found Mr Kelley on Familysearch and it listed his father as John but it listed his mother as Bertha, I think. Anyway, it was not Vinnie.

I added your information to his memorial but did not link them. If you are able to verify his parents, please let me know. Right now I am not able to spend as much time on Find A Grave as I would like.

I appreciate your taking your time to improve Mr Kelly's memorial.

Best Wishes,

Andrew Edwards Gossett

I thank you for putting the obit for Andrew Gossett and especially for permission ahead of time to borrow.

The obit was very heart felt. I'm sure the people Crocket meant every word. Andrew was a 2nd cousin 5x removed. His father was named for my gggrandfather Elijah Gossett.

Thank you,

RE: Grave Houses
I run around with John and Retta Waggoner (which is how I learned about your "find"), and we're always on the lookout for gravehouses. Great fun! John has a wonderful website of them, and we both have virtual cemeteries with more gravehouses, so take a look. They come in all shapes and sizes, making them that much more fun to find.

Gravehouse photos
Thank you SO much for posting the delightful photos of John and Susannah Starr's gravehouse. Those of us not necessarily genealogically inclined really enjoy seeing the surroundings, especially the structures, and your photos are perfect. So, are you hooked on gravehouses?

RE: Travis Allen
See if you can find out through the family where he might be buried. Grave location. I am pretty sure it could not be beside them. The area of the cemetery that they are buried in was not opened until 1947 when they started actually selling plots. He died in 1905. If he is buried in Hopewell it would have been in the old section. Are there any other relatives buried there that he might have been buried beside.

RE: JB West
Apparantly I had the wrong death date for James B West, Sr. He was born on May 1839 in Georgia. There is a James B West, Jr. but he was born in Alabama in 1888 and his father wasn't Jeremiah West (according to Although I can't explain the coinsidences all having lived in Houston County.
