Dear Cousin Fred,

It is wonderful to hear from you and learn old stories from relatives long ago. Words are not enough to express my thanks for the history and information. Once i learned your Josephine's married name became Crain, I did a quick search and found her and her husband were buried in the McGregor, Tx city cemetery. Then lo&behold buried next to them were Claude David Bussa & Mary Elizabeth (Davis) Barmore(1833-1912) !!!!! but Benjamin B. Barmore (1/22/1830-12/9/1890) was not listed.

That solved one of the two mystery Davis burial locations. I'm about 80% sure Mary's mother (Mariam) is buried in the White Zion Presbyterian Church Cemetery, near Tupelo, Ms (post correction: church is Presbyterian). We plan on making a trip there in the next few months. By the way, I am the last male Davis in the entire family line since David M. Davis.

I have photos of Mary's brother (James) and sister (Josephine). Both looking grim too.

Mary's sisters, Martha and Josephine, are buried in Brownwood,Tx. Perhaps those are the ones in your picture?

I will contact you soon and will send some information.

Thank you Cousin Fred.
