Lone Elm Cemetery

Additional Information

According to my late grandmother, Della Cora Dozier Kirby, her mother Rosanna Lou "Rosie" Warren, b 8 Sept 1868, d. 13 Dec 1894 is buried at Lone Elm Cemetery in an unmarked grave on the right side of her sister Minnie Warren.
This same information was given to me by two of my grandmother's nephews, Jack Dozier and Elwood Dozier.

My grandmother's father, Andrew Jackson "Jack" Dozier, Sr, b. 16 Jan 1859, d. 1905, is buried at Harris Creek Cemetery, Smith Co. next to his brother John Leonard Dozier.

On the other side of Minnie at Lone Elm Cemetery is her father, William Samuel Warren, Sr. b. 15 July 1838, d. 6 May 1892, also in an unmarked grave.

William's wife Elmira Jane Rushing (Warren) b 14 May 1838, d. 23 July 1910 is buried in a single plot at Harris Creek Cemetery.

The information regarding Rosanna, Minnie and their father  William all being buried at Lone Elm was also copied from an old family bible of William Samuel and Elmira Jane Rushing Warren with the information having been written by Susie Bell Warren (Thompson), dau of William and Elmira Warren.   She also gave Minnie Warren's date of death as Aug 9, 1887.

I also have information on quite a few other Dozier, Warren, Rushing and Townsend family members buried in Kaufman Co, some graves marked and some not.  As time permits I will check to see if you have that information.
Anyone researching these families is welcome to contact me.  Perhaps - and I said perhaps - I might have the information they are looking for.
