In Reply to: Tomerlins Pulaski TN to Texas early 1900 by Wilma Tomerlin of 144


My g-grandfather was James William Tomerlin. Research that other people have done show that he
died in TX in 1905. The research that Greg Tomerlin did shows he is buried in Mt Olive Cemetery in Ft Worth.
I have checked that out and that grave is for J.W. Tomerlin ane the headstone shows Sarah as the wife.
I feel sure that grave is for John W. I know that my grandmother went to TX either to visit her brother
in Milam, TX or maybe they all went in the early 1900s. An old story that my father used to tell was
that his grandparents walked back from Texas with one child. They would have had a child 2-3 years
old in 1905. It seems that your John William and my James William were cousins. Do you have any
stories about why they went to Texas. Any info would be appreciated.
