Help! Gr-grandfather August Blum d. in Austin Aug 7, 1914. The
Asylum says they sent the body home but don't say where! Records say he
was to be buried next to his wife. No death certificate. He had family
and property in Corsicana. I think he and his wife must have been buried
in unmarked graves. How do I find out? Thanks.

believe my gr-grandfather, J. M. Stark, is a brother of Robert Franklin
Stark. Is there an obit, will, or anything on R. F. Stark which lists
his siblings and parents? R. F. Stark died before J. M. - need to find
anything which will list J. M. Stark as a surviving brother.

Looking for information on Daniel Smith, my great-grandfather, who was
listed as being born in Navarro County on my Grandmothers birth
certificate. She was born in 1912 making him born 1873-1875)
I have a photo of him with my great grandmother & their 2 little Girls
in St. Augustine Co. where the girls were born & their mother told them
he left them because he had another family in Navarro Co. I want
to find him & this family. The photo you have posted looks just like the man in the photo I
have. Daniel could be a middle name ? NOTE:

Greetings from San Diego (California, not Texas)!
I'm a travel writer living in San Diego and I'm doing some research for
a story about a lady who I believe was born and raised in Corsicana. Her
name was Frances Wilburn Allen Stephenson, or something very close to
that. I am told that her father was one of the founders of TEXACO.
I know she was a radio actress in Hollywood during the 1930s and was a
friend of many of the big stars of that time. She eventually
retired here in San Diego. She was also a close friend of my father. I
met her several times before she passed away back in the late 1980s.
I am looking for anyone who might have known her or anything about her.
I've tried doing an internet search but that didn't help much. I hope
you can pass this request along in your paper or to anybody or any
organization in Corsicana who might be able to help me. There's a
fascinating story here, if I can fill in some of the missing pieces.

Texas married 1882 in Navarro, Texas. Their offspring were:
Zealia, Leighna, Angela, Terry, Sallie, Earl, Dewey and Annie.
Terry is the son of Elias Burrow(s) and possibly Milly P,.J. Burrows.
If anyone has any information on this family, kindly contact me.
Looking for any info on James Brewster- born 1850. The family
lived in Navarro Co in the 1870 census. Wife Ann---born Ill daughter
M. N. maybe it's Margaret or Mary- born 1870.
hi my name is Connie Mosier. Is there anyway that you can go back and
check someone's email address that posted a message on the query?
The lady's name is Bonnie, she posted a message in late March 2002,
re: William L. Smith b. in Younger Cemetery. I have tried the link,
but aol says there is no such address. Any help would be appreciated,
William is my grandfather.
I am writing a book on The Texas Gun Trade, 1780 – 1899. I am very
interested in any information or things pertaining to this subject. I
am including gunsmiths, gun makers, gun dealers (including hardware
stores, etc.), or any others that took part in the gun trade in Texas.
Please let me know if you have any information, articles or objects
related to this subject.
