Edward Bobbitt
Thanks for the info on Edward! Do you know how he happened to be buried at Miller Creek Cemetery? The cemetery was started by the Felps family, my mom's side, and most of the people buried there are related or grew up in the immediate area. It also isn't close to Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio. Curious why Miller Creek was chosen.

Wow, I hope he gets found. I hesitate to claim the memorial for 2 reasons. #1 is the cold and snow. #2 is that I know this area, and it's a lot of babies and a lot of turned over markers. I went through this part of North Division last fall, and, obviously, didn't find him. I just went back and looked at some pictures I took. If this is still open in a few weeks, I'll try again. Would be nice to complete the family.

Alfred Brandenburg
What a cool picture! I am just trying to get some miscellaneous markers from basically the poor person's part of Springdale. I'm glad to be able to tie Alfred to so many people. It must have been devastating to have him die young like that. Since you're a relative, would you like to manage the memorial?

David Henry Holman # 110793216
Gary, you sent a SAC for David linking parents.

Joseph Holeman # 13778332

Rebecca Jane Givens Bobbett # 25740992

I did find this marriage information

Joseph Holman
mentioned in the record of Joseph Holman and Rebecca J Givens

Name: Joseph Holman
Spouse's Name: Rebecca J Givens
Event Date: 25 Jan 1857
Event Place: Butler,Kentucky
Indexing Project (Batch) Number: M51715-1 , System Origin: Kentucky-ODM , GS Film number: 216818

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/F4WN-MHH

They are both from Butler Co, Kentucky and their names match but without birth dates there is no way to be certain if they are the correct parents for the above marriage information.

Do you have any documentation that links Joseph & Rebecca as being married ?

Thanks... Michael
