RE: Cotton Gin Cemetery Freestone co Tx
Hi, Mary Ann, if you are still wanting information on Cotton Gin Cemetery after this long time, to the left of the entrance gates there is a pavilion that has the grave locations listed. You should be able to find the plot that way. It has been some time since I have been to the cemetery but when I was there it was readable and an effective tool for finding the plots. Hope this helps!

Mary Ann,
I went out to Cotton Gin yesterday to fill some requests and this time I "chalked" the marker to bring out the inscription.
The plot thickens .......
The dates are plainly in the 1880's, it's posted.
Hope this helps ya out on your genealogy quest.
Later, James Posted

RE: Ernast Harris-Cotton Gin Cemetery
Evening Mary Ann,
Sure, naturally U can utilize the fotos that I took, any way ya want to.
After all, fotos are made to be enjoyed by people, not put away somewhere, have fun . !!!!
= = = =
As to the dates involved, as ya already know I was not the one who set up the monument, just fill in the foto section, as such, I can't account for that info.
I have a stone cleaning kit that I normally have on hand but that day, I left it in another vehicle,
I have 4 but only 1 kit.
However, since U are concerned about the dates and not being able to read the stone, I can do this.
I have plans to go to Mexia after the holidays to fill some requests and Cotton Gin is N/E of Mexia, not really that far away. I will make a note on my clipboard to swing by there, marker easy to locate given the overall view showing it next to a specific tree, and see what I can discover.
Will let U know what develops plus replace the current fotos with, hopefully, updated ones with readable info.
Hope the Holidays are kind to U and yours. !!!
Later, James Coston
