I am searching for the gravesite of Charles Backus in Callaghan County Texas. The county seat of Callaghan County is Baird. Charles Backhouse immigrated from Leeds, England approximately 1882 or 1883. He brought the children listed below with him from England. He bought land in Callaghan County. He was either murdered or died by accident sometime around 1885. The children were orphaned because the mother stayed in England with her elderly mother. She kept some of the children with her. My grandfather, Herbert Charles Backus, was one of the younger children that was orphaned.
Charles Backhouse changed his name to Backus because of the way the people in the US pronounced Backhouse.
Father of Charles Backus was Thomas Backhouse, his mother was Mary Gomersall.
Any information would be appreciated.
