The Graham-Mason Cemetery photos and information are now available on the Cemeteries page. That was the smaller of the two cemeteries in Hill County, Texas that I have inventoried, with only 22 identified graves. Jennie Maragert Melton, the wife of my great-granduncle Francis Lee Turner, and probably her infant son Claude are buried here.
Today is the fourth annual Graham-Mason Cemetery Association meeting. I had planned to attend, but at the last minute I was “volunteered” to go with my granddaughter’s UIL Art Team to the Kimbell Art Museum in Ft Worth. That’s ok, cuz I love to do stuff with my granddaughter, I just wish the two events weren’t on the same day.
Anyway, Graham-Mason is where my great-great aunt Jennie Margaret Melton (1864-1887)and possibly her infant son Claude are buried. I really wanted to go to the meeting, maybe next year!
Ok, I sent an email to Susan about the template. Now, back to the purpose of this blog: my research!
What’s been going on lately: I finished the Chatt-Jessie Cemetery transcriptions & photos and got all that uploaded to my Bluebonnet Country Genealogy site.
I also made a trip to Graham-Mason Cemetery in Hill County, but didn’t quite find it. So I emailed the transcriber from another site and we made plans to meet at Graham-Mason Cemetery on Saturday so I can transcibe and photograph it. The lady also scanned a copy of a 1949 document written by one of my ancestors dealing with her (and my) Graham-Melton line and sent me a copy! Another piece of the puzzle!
A very productive week, actually, in spite of my blog frustrations.
