My great-grandmother, Rhoda C. Melton Arnett, and her daughter, Emma, moved to Navarro county, Texas from Cannon County, following the death of her husband, Dr. James E. Arnett. At least two of her sons had already moved to Texas.
I recently found that Rhoda died in 1914 and is buried in Kerens, Texas, Navarro county.
But, I have not been able to find death and burial information for Dr. Arnett.
Dr. Arnett, Rhoda, and Emma were on the 1910 census. There is a Deed which gives, not only the dispostion of his property, but also the names of his wife, children and their spouses and locations. In the Deed, dated Aug. 1, 1913, it only says that Dr. Arnett was recently deceased.
I wondered why Rhoda and Emma left Tennessee to come to Texas. I thought that, possibly, she had family in Texas, or, possibly, it was because her sons had made their way to Texas, or she might have moved to be with some of her husband's family. There are both Meltons and Arnetts in that area.
Rhoda's father was William Arnett.
