Re: Roan's Chappel in Bryan?

The only death record I found was a reference to her death certificate, which I suspect is the same record you have. It notes that she was buried in Roan's Chappel Cemetery.

Buried in Roan’s Chapel:

Mckellam, Mattie Nl 1928, Nov 18 Dau Of Pollie Symms (Court record is listed as the source for this information, which means that it came from a death certificate at the court house)


I found a couple of other notes that might be of interest?

"District Court," Bryan Daily Eagle, 23 September 1899, p.2, col.2. Mentions Will Walker, John McCallom

“Negro Is Killed While In Bed; Is Thought Suicide,” Bryan Weekly Eagle, 26 Apr. 1933, p.1. Jesse McCallum

Then I checked the World War I draft records as posted on Ancestry:

The records for Brazos County list:
Anson McKellum
born 21 Oct. 1895, in College Station, Texas
race: Black        
residence: Harvey, Texas
occupation: Farming
next of kin: wife and one child
description: tall and slender

This person is listed in the 1910 Brazos County census (also according to the Ancestry database) in the household of:

McCallan, Matilda – born about 1862, Texas
McCallan, Anson – born about 1895, Texas
Matilda’s household also included:
Hall, Lemon – who was also her son, born about 1888

I hope this is helpful.
