Hiner stone in Warren-Miller cemetery
Diana, I have added new notes to Lewis Hyner/Hiner, who I have attributed the HINER stone in Warren-Miller cemetery. It does seem that he was NOT buried in Texas, as his will indicated he never left Jackson County, Georgia. It is possible that it is his wife Nancy Myer Heiner that could have come to live in Texas and that the gravestone is hers, although at this time, I have NO PROOF of this either. I will continue to work on this "puzzle" and hope that we can determine who that stone was placed for.

Richard Murril
His full name was Elias P. Richard Murrill. He was known as "Dick". Please post this to his bio. Source: Goodspeed's 1889 History of Texas Co., MO.

E. P. Murrill, who is also closely associated with the farming and stock dealing interests of Texas County. was born in Jefferson County,
Mo., July 29, 1844, being the son of Elias (born November 4, 1810)and Jane A. (Perkins) Murrill (born October 28, 1816), natives of Kentucky, and grandson of Hardin Murrill, who was also a native of Kentucky, and who settled in Ste. Genevieve County, Mo., as did also the family of John Perkins, father of Jane A. (Perkins) Murrill.
Both were, it is supposed, Revolutionary soldiers. The Perkins were large people, long-lived, and were Baptists in their religious views. The Murrill's were of medium stature, and were members of the Baptist Church. Among them may be found merchants, artisans, farmers
and professional people. E. P. Murrill grew to man’s estate in Missouri, and during the latter part of the war was in the Union service
for nearly seven months. He farmed in Jefferson County until 1873,and then spent eleven years in Franklin County, Mo., or until 1884,when he moved to Texas County of the same State, and there invested in land. He was married in Jefferson County, Mo., May 18, 1869, to Miss Lucy Maness, a native of Missouri, born December 5, 1847,
and the daughter of Elijah Maness, born September 7, 1811, and Mary Ann (Murrell) Maness, natives of Tennessee and Missouri, respectively. Mr. and Mrs. Murrill have reared three sons and two
daughters: Constantine Briggs, born February 17, 1870; George Riley, born August 27, 1871; Mary Ann, born September 2, 1873; Daisy May, born November 9, 1876, and Ross Perkins, born November
8, 1878. Mr. Murrill has served on the school board of this district for many years, and he and wife are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South.

James W. Jones
Please post to his bio. Source: Goodspeed's 1889 History of Texas Co., MO.

Hon. James W. Jones. Among the prominent citizens and prosperous farmers of Texas County, Mo., who started in life for themselves with a very small portion of this world’s goods, but who have
attained a secure and high position on the ladder of success, may be mentioned Mr. Jones, who is the youngest of ten children, and was born in Clinton County, Ky., April 20, 1823. He acquired a good education in his youthful days, and at the age of twenty years left home, and came to Chariton County, Mo., where he was first engaged
in breaking hemp at $12 per month, and at the breaking out of the Mexican War enlisted in Company K, Second Missouri Cavalry, under
Col. Sterling Price, and was out twelve months, participating in the battles of Cannatta, Lamputher and Toas. At the last named battle
he received a wound in the left thigh that came very near being fatal. In 1850 he went to California, driving an ox team as far as Salt Lake, and made the rest of the way on horseback. He was engaged in mining in that State until 1853, then went to Australia, where he mined for about a year, then returned to his home, and engaged in farming in Chariton County. During the late war he served for a short time in the Missouri State Guard, and April 3, 1855, was married to Mary Porch, a native of Tennessee, born May 28, 1821, her father being Israel, the first settler of Porch's Prairie, in Chariton County. To Mr. and Mrs. Jones a family of three children were born: Jonathan, John and an infant (deceased). Both sons are married, and residing near their parents. Mr. Jones is the owner of 1,000 acres of land, with about 300 acres under cultivation, and owing to his many sterling business qualities his labors have been attended with good success. While in Chariton County he held the oflice of justice of the peace, and in 1877-78 he represented Texas County in the State
Legislature. He is a Democrat and Mason, and a son of Jonathan and Mary (Humphries) Jones, who were born, respectively, in North Carolina and Georgia. At at early day the father moved with his
brother, on pack-horses, from North Carolina to Kentucky, and settled in Clinton County, whither the mother came when a young woman. They were married and spent their lives in that county, and were engaged in agricultural pursuits, and in his political views the father was a Democrat. They were members of the Presbyterian and Baptist Churches, and died at the ages of sixty-five and seventy-three,respectively.
