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.

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

Children of Missouri Angelina Williams
I just learned the names of all of Angelina's siblings and notice that she named all of her children in honor of her own siblings or mother. She had daughters Ellen Bell and Nancy Jane and sons William Riley and John Henry.

RE: Edward Matzke
Thank you for putting in the changes. It looks fine except the town name is Jesenik Nad Odrou not Odrow. The Odrou is a river running through the Czech Republic.The name means Jesenik by/on the Odrou river.
