Bio and Links
Many years into my hobby of genealogy, I find so much important information on Find A Grave that I like to add what I can so that others will find links they can use.

My research is of Mustaine, Pittenger, Dial, Newton, Deadmon, and Burden families. Areas where these families lived include Ohio, Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Oklahoma and Mississippi.

I am happy to add links for you, or additional information, and will transfer memorials to you, using the Find A Grave guidelines.

# 125543388 - Robert W. Cowart
Would you please add this bio on his memorial:

2nd Lt. Robert W. Cowart was born 3 April 1917 in Elmer, OK to John William and Perl (Thompson) Cowart. He graduated from Seagraves Texas High School and enlisted in the US Army on 9 July 1941 at Fort Bliss, TX. (ASN 38068468 ) Cowart was assigned to Company B 1st Batallon, 13th Infantry Regiment, 8th Division.

On 13 July 1944, in the vicinity of La Haye-du-Puits Normandy, France. Although wounded by enemy machine gun fire, Sgt. Cowart without regard to his own safety, carried a wounded comrade to a sheltered position, then with his own machine gun cleared out the enemy machine gun nest. Throughout the whole day, Sgt. Cowart voluntarily kept in contact with other units when his unit was pinned down, setting an inspirational of leadership to members of his organization. S/Sgt. (at the time of action) Cowart was awarded the Sliver Star for his gallant action and the Purple Heart for wounds received in this battle.

Cowart was treated for his wounds and continued to serve with Company B, 13th Infantry Regiment in their push into Germany and was given a Battlefield Commission to 2nd Lieutenant (O-2008435). On 16 April 1945 on the last day of the 13th Infantry in combat, 2nd LT. Robert W. Cowart was Killed in Action in the vicinity of Niederspockhoven, Germany in the Ruhr Pocket. During the last 20 days of fighting, Cowart’s Regiment had advanced 140 miles in German held territory, taken 10 large cities and numerous towns and captured well over 40,000 German Prisoners of War.

2nd Lt. Cowart’s remains were transferred back to the United States and he was buried on 24 April 1949 in the Altus Cemetery, Jackson County, Oklahoma.

Hi Marianne,
I submitted an edit on Lizzie's spouse. Milton was listed as Harry Thacker Barker's father but not as Lizzie's husband. I did some searching and discovered the US Census in 1910 showed 21 year old Milton, 23 year old Lizzie and 0 year old Felton all living in a boarding house in Granite, OK. Milton's page shows only Harry Thacker Barker as his son...who also shows up as Felton's brother. I don't even know why I searched this, I don't know these people at all. I need to get a hobby. Ref:

Hope this helps in tying Lizzie to Harry.

Trudo Holder
I was wondering if you had found out any more information on Trudo, Fina A Grave Memorial #122310689. I have not found any record that she is buried in the Texico Cemetery or any record of her anywhere.

Marianne, Just noticed that my Grandmother's name is unknown to you. Her name was Lora Mae Dill Anderson. She was the Mother of Flora Grace Anderson.
Thank you for doing such a Herculean and great work keeping data on so many gravesites.

Thanks for the earlier correction. One more thing, in the Texas Select County Marriages, 1837-1965, It lists her marriage to Chandler as 24 Oct 1886 rather than 6 Oct 1886.

Would like permission to download your photos to my husband's genealogy files. He is not directly related, just an extended family line through his Gilkison ties but I like to gather photos to share with others. Will link back to Find A Grave.
