I have information from the death certicate of my Great-grandfather, with verification from Anderson-Clayton Funeral Homes that he was buried on August 29, 1935 at Wilson Chapel. His name was William Marion Couch b: 8-23-1854 Georgia, d: August 28, 1935 near Elmo, Kaufman County, Texas.Trish Grimes TrackingFamily @ aol.com

He married in Bollinger Co., MO on 28 Nov 1867 to Mary Frances Knowles, daughter of Hiram Knowles & Mary Gibbes. (They too came to Kaufman Co., TX.)

Christian & Mary Frances, had siblings: Sarah Jane Williams & William Burr
Knowles. They also married. Both Sarah Jane&Christian Eli were born in Madison Co., MO. near the town
of Higdon. They married siblings & came to Kaufman Co., TX. when the
Knowles family left Madison/Bollinger Co.'s Also came: Micajah (brother

William Burr Knowles b. 24 Oct 1847 in White Co. TN. son of Hiram Knowles & Mary E. Gibbs. d. 19 Nov. 1926 in Kaufman Co., TX.
Sarah Jane Williams b. 30 Oct 1849 at Higdon, Madison Co., MO daughter of
Rev John O Williams & Martha Skaggs.
My sources are:
ALSO BURIED IN KAUFMAN CO. :
Knowles, Hiram 28 Jan 1807 @Virginia - 24 March 1879 MD: Mary E Gibbs on 28 Nov 1838 in White Co., TN.
Knowles, Mary E. 20 Fen 1817 @TN. - 20 March 1891 nee Gibbs W/O Hiram.
These dates come from the Knowles family, but no one is absolutely 100% sure
where these two are buried at. There are supposed to be some unmarked graves about 5 of them in the Williams plot. Could this be them?
