I am about to go off and see about doing some cemetery surveys. Mom
(Janice) is off camping, or she'd be joining me I'm sure. Guess I'll drag
my 6 and 8 y/o kids along...heck, they find fun in anything! :-D
What I want to offer is this. If anyone has a specific lookup, in a
specific cemetery, I will see what I can do. If I can find my Mom's camera
(mine is broke right now), I can take photos of the grave at cost (gas,
film, developing, and postage etc.) We want to get to working on cemetery
indexes, and be able to offer to take photos of the graves for folks who
can't get to this area. Just let me know ASAP, because I am going to get
started this afternoon on it. Of course, I may not decide to bug someone on
a Sunday afternoon for permission to survey the cemetery if it is on
private property. Doesn't seem right somehow. I am at my Mom's house right
now (she has all the Erath Co. page files here) and will be going home
soon, so be sure to CC any replies to:
Put ERATH CEMETERY LOOKUP in the subject line, so I don't miss it.
Hope to hear from some of you. Sorry, I know this is last minute, but
after I got off work at 7am, I just got to itching to do something
productive. Too bad I'm not productive on my housework.... ;-) This is more
fun! What I'd give to do lookups 8 hours a day, 5 days a week instead of
work... We will be going again soon to do more, so if you don't get this
out in time today, please send your requests anyways. We'll get to it
"eventually" (our middle name ;-)

I am looking for information on a C. Marion Stagner (Stagney) b 1856 in Mo.
married an Ellen (?) b 1863 in Mo. Their daughter Minnie L is my
grandmother b 1897 in Tx. Do you have any information on this family?
Thank you for your time, Kay
I want to think all the nice people who have answered my Oxford Plea.
My R. L. (Lee) Oxford is found in the 1900 census of Erath Co. with Wife
Fannie (Pope). Lee was born in 1865 in Ga. There are two sons William Lamin
born 1887 GA and Walter Born 1890 in Ga.
The family story goes that R. L. was killed by a man named Trammell. Walter
avenged the death by killing the Trammell fellow. I suppose the family left
the county for this reason. They show up in Hot Springs Ark by 1908. I have a
picture of the two young men dated 1908 saying on the back that it was taken
in Hot Springs.
I believe the mother Fannie had and aunt or aunts living in Hot Springs,
Garland Co. at that time. Which could account for that choice.
Does anyone having Trammell connections remember a story like that?
Are there archives at the newspaper or library where there might be a record
of this event?
Who were R. Ls. parents. What connection did he have to the Oxfords living in
Erath at the time. They were mostly decendents of Able Oxford from Washington
Co. Fayetteville and Goshen Arkansas area.
I am just full of questions. Thanks again for everyones help. I still need

I am searching for information about Thomas J. Morris, his wife, Mary
Margaret (Aunt Sis) Greenwood Morris (married 1865 in Fannin County,
Georgia) , and their children. My husband is the great grandson of
Thomas and Mary through their son, Beverly Harris Morris and his son,

Any information or family connection would be appreciated.
We wanted to post to the list that we have added 3 more editions of the
Erath Appeal newspaper to the Erath page. We are working on these as much
as we have time for. We have some vacation time coming up, and we hope to
get some more work done transcribing records.
We also wanted to mention, that if you will tell us of any Erath family
reunions, we will post it to the page, and you can also submit it to the
link off the front page, with more details there.
Best of luck on your research,
