My great-great grandparents Alexander McMillan and Rebecca Tillman McMillan are buried in the Friendship Cemetery near Cottondale, close to the county line between Parker and Wise Counties. I am not sure which county Friendship Cemetery is in. I wish to learn anything I can about these people. They are the grandparents of William Franklin Finley (my great-uncle)who lived near Paradise or Cottondale. In 1860 Alexander and Rebecca lived in Tyler County, Texas a half mile from their daughter Martha McMillan Fenley, William Franklin Finley's mother. I have no idea when or why they moved to the Paradise/Cottondale/Springtown area. What I have given here is all I know about them.

My cousin Joe Finley, Uncle Frank's grandson, took me to see Alexander and Rebecca's graves when I attended a Finley reunion two years ago. Many of Uncle Frank's descendants still live in the Parker/Wise county area. I hope someone can help me learn more about these people.

Sincerely,
Jeanette FENLEY Moore
