I cannot find the cemetery in Rock Island, Texas that my relatives are buried in. I can't find a Rock Island Texas! Is it near Denison? Can someone point me in the right direction?
My ggrandmother, Mellissa Druzella Bruner born in Hope, Indiana,(b.6/June 1878) and John Henry Peddicord,(b. 9 April 1881) born in Forsyth County, NC, were married on 8/16/1877 in Hope, Indiana. Their children were Druzella Maude b. 6/6/78, Mary Eliza b. 3/27/1880, Grace b. 4/3/83 (died at birth), Elsie Sarah b. 4/25/84, Charley b.3/24/1888 (died at @ 2 years), Roy Thomas b. 3/29/1890, Emma Ruth b. 8/29/93, Charlotte (Lottie) b. 7/9/1897, d. 10/1811 in Rock Island, Texas. Mellissa Druzella Bruner Peddicord died in 1914 in Rock Island, Texas. John Henry also died in Rock Island , but I don't have the date. My Aunty Mar said that she visited the graves in 1948.
(ASIDE: Did Roy Thomas have any children? I met him once and I know that he fought in WWI.)
My GGrandmother Druzella Maude Peddicord married Harvey Bledsoe in 1900 in Wichita, Kansas. Their children, a son stillborn in 1900, Lucille Muriel Bledsoe (Manfull) (b.10/03/03, d.2/21/73), and Margaret Elizabeth (Sweaney, Weaver) (b.2-07-05) were all born in Denison. Any help would be very much appreciated.
