I am trying 'very hard' to locate the grave of my G.Grandmother, Widow (Dicey /(Guicey)/ Catherine) Taylor b.Oct 1818-1819 NC. may be buried in the Westley Chapel Cemetery in Bluff Dale, Erath Co., TX. (or in another Cemetery, near there). She was 82years of age in the 1900 Census, when she was residing with her youngest daughter, Mary Jane (nee-Taylor) and son-in-law. "J.J."(John Joseph)Peugh/Puigh/Pugh)from GA and later AL, before coming to Texas abt 1893. Their surname was often mispelled.
Please, I hope someone will search the cemetery records for me...for my G.Grandmother Taylor.

"Dicey" was the widow of Moses Taylor of GA. He died ca 1860-1861? He was sometimes called "Joe" and sometimes he was called "Moses"? I think he died in Georgia. They named one of their sons, William Moses Peugh. William Moses Peugh resided in adjoining Hood Co. TX, as well as did his brother, Louis Averett Peugh.

Another brother, J.A.(John Allen Peugh) and wife, Dorothy 'Harde'man (nee-Kuykendall) Peugh, resided in Bluff Dale and later in Morgan Mill, Erath Co.TX, just across the county line from Hood Co.TX. They lost some children (babies), and they may also be buried in the Wesley Chapel Cemetery in Bluff Dale.

I hope someone can help me find my G.Grandmother Taylor's grave and also of the baby Peugh children...but especially the grave of G.Grandmother, Dicey Taylor...She may have been buried under one of her other names mentioned above.

Her older daughter, Rhoda Ann Catherine (nee-Taylor) and her husband, William Crockett Fallin...are buried there in Bluff Dale's Wesley Chapel Cemetery.

Great Grandaughter,
Please email me if anything can be found...and thank you very much for your help.
