  • Carrie Lee, Daughter of Thomas Monroe and Ellen Maria (Nelson) Spencer, Born Feb 20, 1891, Died Mar 5, 1891.  There is a Memorial marker for this Baby in the SPENCER family plot in the Prairie Point Cemetery, near Bazette, Navarro Co., TX
  • According to Lynn JEFFERS (he is a grandson of Sammie E. and Ruth Jane (Graham) Jeffers and a great grandson of William and Sarah (PINE) JEFFERS), there are others buried in this cemetery and he says that several of them had tombstones or markers.  If so, they have deteriorated and are lost.
