RE: Joseph Peden monument Co. Spr.
Thanks for not giving in! When I checked with the cemetery before they just looked at their computer database, which showed nothing. I did not have the date of death with me so the search pretty much ended there. So now, I checked with the Pikes Peak Geneaological Society and they do have record of Joseph Peden being buried on 22 Aug 1901 in block 46 but they also record, No Headstone. They odds then of there being a marker is not good and with a no plot or space location it will be hard to pit point his location. I am going back to the cemetery again tomorrow (as I practically live there anyway) and will do a physical seach of the block. If I am unable to find anything, is there anything else I could show you instead?

RE: Emily Catherine Liter Rasor #13361268
Emily and her husband, Willis H Razor, were never in Texas. Willis died a few days before the war ended.
This is part of his son's memories:
William Thomas Rasor
W. T. Rasor was born in Harrison County, Indiana on January 10, 1853. He vividly remembered the hardships during the Civil War as his father fought with the Union forces throughout the conflict and was killed in South Carolina just a few days before the war ended.
Bill Rasor was eight years old and his brother, J. H., was eleven years old when they were left with the responsibility of helping their family of five children.
"The soldiers didn't have any harder time than we did," Mr. Rasor would say.
The Rasor family lived on the banks of the Ohio River and in 1866 they moved to Kentucky where he lived with his Mother until her death in 1874. In 1878 he moved to Macon County, Illinois and there worked on the same farm that Abraham Lincoln gained fame as a rail splitter. He returned to Kentucky the same year and in 1878 went to Kansas, where he worked on a railroad. In February of 1883 he came to Allen, Collin County, Texas, and in June 1887, he married Sally Gallup. They farmed in Collin County until 1889, when they moved to Dallas where Bill Rasor did work for the City of Dallas until November 1890 when he came to what is now known as Foard County.
The Rasor family settled on a farm about 7 miles southeast of Crowell. Mr. Rasor drove the first thrasher outfit of its kind ever brought to the County.
In 1894 Mr. Rasor and G. T. Crowell put in the first cotton gin. His power for the gin was gained by Mr. Rasor's steam engine. "If we had good luck we could gin 5 or 6 bales a day," he said. A little feed mill was later put in the gin building and powered from the steam engine. "When we first tried it out, we couldn't get it to grind anything and soon found we were running it backwards," he said.

Rasor was born November 20, 1821 in Green County, Kentucky, and died February 27, 1865 in Lancaster, South Carolina (killed in action, Civil War). He married (1) Sarah Ann Campbell on February 13, 1843 in Jefferson County, Kentucky. He married (2) Emily Catherine Liter on Sept. 20, 1848, in Jefferson County, Kentucky, daughter of Henry W.

RE: Emily Catherine Liter Rasor #13361268
Waunita, I am sorry but my research on this family was for Civil War veterans only. I touched upon family members as I could, but seldom followed their lines. I know that Ona was not in the 1860 census, but found no marriage record, nor death record for her, so I did not persue anything further. After their mother died in Meade County, Kentucky, some of the Razor sons migrated to Foard County, Texas, thus my interest in them. I am sorry that I could not be of any help. I have done a small search for Ona in the 1860 and 1870 censuses, in Harrison, Indiana and in Meade Kentucky, and can only suppose, that if she was still alive she has not followed her family to these places. I have to say, that there was O J "surname" born c 1840, Indiana, in the censuses, but I did not persue these either as I would have no proof that either of them was your Ona without a marriage record.

RE: Farris Dalton
Of course the census has never been famous for accuracy in name spelling. In 1850-Faris
In 1860 Farris. In 1870 Pharis.
I could not find any info on origin of the name Pharas. Sorry
