Louisa, James and Nettye are all buried in Shelby Chapel Cem in Henderson Co Tx.

We don’t yet know where the others are buried.

If anyone can confirm these are William M Johnson and his wife Jeanetta Clay and who the sister is of Louisa T Johnson we would much appreciate the information!

Would prefer other photos of this couple if available to compare with.
