Appears to have been the base for a metal marker that was probably stolen in order to sell for scrap metal.

The next nine photos are from the BURNS plot.

Wm. D. BURNS, a black male, age 38, is found in Tarrant County in the 1900 census with his family. He was listed as a farmer, born in October 1861 in South Carolina. His father was born in South Carolina and his mother in Virginia. His wife, Ella V., is shown to be a black female, age 31 and the mother of five children. They had been married for 16 years. She was born in April 1869 in Virginia, as were her parents.
Children:
1) Jno. G., age 13, born March 1887 in Virginia.
2) Valriea, age 11, born January 1889 in Virginia.
3) Dringer, age 8, born May 1892 in Texas.
4) Pauline W., age 5, born August 1894 in Texas.
5)

Ellen W., age 1, born January 1899 in Texas.

Wm.'s mother is living in the household. Her name is difficult to read so our best effort results as La___ A. BURNS. She is a black female, a widow, age 59, born September 1840 in Virginia, as were her parents. She is shown to had had only one child. Could this be the Lou Burns from the headstone above?

From the birth dates, above, we can determine that this family migrated from Virginia to Texas sometime between 1889 and 1892.
