Thomas (Uncle Tom) Franklin Hash who died Dec 4, 1943

Note from Natalie Bauman
"Tom Hash died about a month before his sister Sarah Jane Hash Myers did, Saturday December 4, 1943 at his home after a three month illness.  He is buried at Locust Cemetery, close to Pottsboro.  His wife Ellie Avaline is buried next to him.  There is no marked tombstone, only a rock." 
Tom was born 26 May 1862 in Indiana and died 04 December 1943 in Pottsboro.
Nancy Avaline Cook Hash was born in 1846 in Missouri and died in 1918 in Pottsboro. 
I am not sure exactly where they are, but there is a place where Gertie Clountz Smith is buried in Locust Cemetery; Tom Hash was her great uncle, so he and his wife may be next to Gertie in a family plot. 
Another Clountz, Gertie's twin brother, Bertie, is buried just across from Gertie, so the Hash burial is probably very near or next to them.  Some rock markers are right next to Gertie Clountz Smith's grave that could be theirs.

Tom was a member of the Locust Church of Christ, which then moved their building in his lifetime to the Willow Springs area a few miles away on land donated by the Driggers family and across the road from the Clountz place.
