In a message dated 2/21/02 12:17:30 PM Eastern Standard Time,
<< Sorry for the late reply. I'm just getting to my email. Texas had
registrations of deaths as early as 1903 and by 1910 they were getting
pretty thorough. The Family History Library in Salt Lake has the index and
filmed of death certificates (1903-1968) from the Texas Bureau of Vital
Stats. Email me William's wife's name and next time I go up, I can look
the certificates up for you. Due to the Olympics, I'm not planning on
going up until March.
What a nice offer! William Frederick Black Watts was married to Minnie Mae
Lindsey. She died (of TB, I think) in 1912 in Upshur County. As far as I
know, WFB Watts was my only ancestor who died in Reeves County. I don't know
why he was there at all! But I'd love to see an obit, a gravestone, a death
certificate--anything on him!

I'm searching for information on KOEN-specifically John Koen who died in
June 1922 and his son Sam who died in 1954. Sam apparently worked for the
railroad and my mom said there is a museum in Pecos? which had a picture of
him on the wall. Does anyone know of a museum there or how I can contact them?

Is there a cemetery listing for the Fairview Cemetery in Pecos, Reeves Co.,
TX? I am looking for the birth and death dates for Raymond G. Middleton. I
believe he died in about 1948. His wife, Virginia Dare Nance Middleton, died
in Pecos in 1972 and is buried in the Fairview Cemetery, so I am assuming he
was also buried there. Any help is this matter will be greatly appreciated.
Forgot I was subscribed to this list--it's so quiet! How about a roll call?
My ancestor died in Pecos, I believe, on 12/20/1930. His name was William
Frederick Black Watts and I would welcome ANY info on him. How did he die?
Is there an obit? A headstone? A picture of where he lived? A picture of
HIM? (I think my dad has one, but it looks like one taken in th coffin--he
looks like a wax statue!). Are there any census or land records? Records of
his children (Nina & William Ray)? His wife died young in Upshur (1912) so
there won't be records of her, but what did he do? How did he support the
kids? Was there a nanny or other woman in his life? He died before my dad
was born and I never thought to talk to my grandmother about him. This guy is
my great-grandfather and a COMPLETE mystery to me!
Any help appreciated!
