Ephriam died January 29, 1926 in the home of his son-in-law, James Mabry Cox. Lucinda is said to have died there too, on October 04, 1934. I need to find out: 1) where Lucinda was buried, and 2) who were Lucinda PARSONS' parents, and 3) where did she/they come from? Lucinda is said to have been born in Texas. As for her parents, I believe they may be Eli L. PARSONS (Jan 3, 1831-Aug 18, 1885) and Elizabeth "Eliza" PARSONS (Apr 22, 1833-May 10, 1908) or a brother of Eli's. Eli and Eliza(beth) are both buried at New Hew Cemetery, just a few miles southwest of Mt. Zion Cemetery in Cooke Co., Texas. The reason I think they could be Lucinda'a parents or other relatives is because nearby, there is ANOTHER, younger Lucinda PARSONS (Dec 26, 1871 - July 22, 1950), a possible cousin or niece.

I haven't been able to find him there in the household of a David. I do however find land he homesteaded. It was 16 miles from the old town of Sherman that burned down. Another thing is, one of David's witnesses was Wm. RODGERS. My land document is marked Fannin at the top and Collin at the bottom. Don't know for sure where land is located. From all indication in reading history of Fannin, I believe my David may be connected to ROGERS, Thomas Jackson of Fannin Cnty. He came to Texas around the same time and is from MO. However, I cannot prove or disprove at this time. Anyone with information, please contact me. Thomas Jackson ROGERS lived around Sadler,Fannin Cnty, TX according to the book. David had half brother who must have been younger but supposedly had no children. David Rothborn RODGERS lived in Dallas by 1894 and after 1920 was in Irving,TX.

SMITH FAMILY PHOTOGRAPH SMITH, Willie, Ludie, Tome, & Lee. A photograph of the SMITH family (Man/Woman/2 boys) was in my grandmother's picture box. I guess-ta-mate that it was taken around the 1890's. The back of the photograph reads "by R. R. PARKER, ALL KINDS OF KODAK WORK, Gainsville, Texas." Can anyone tell me about this photographer, when the company was in business? Anything that will give a clue who the SMITH family was and help me determine what relationship they may have to my family tree. Grandmother only kept family pictures in her "stuff."

I am looking for the parents of Louisa WILSON and of James T. BERRY. They were married in Gainesville, Cooke County, on 1/24/1862. They are my ggg-gparents. I have a copy of their marriage license. BERRY is buried in Ardmore at Rosewood (?) and was apparently later married to a Rosie Rudd (have a copy of Confederate Pension application). But, I don't know what happened to Louisa WILSON. Where did she come from? Where did she go? (She may or may not be from Alabama. I believe that Berry is from Blount Co., AL.)
