BOGART - c1865
Posted by: Marcy (ID *****8207) Date: July 14, 2002 at 16:26:23
  of 435

Seeking parents and/or siblings of my 2 gr-grandmother Mary E. BOGART who married John T. SHANNON in Fayette County, Texas, 6 October 1865. She was born 19 July 1846, and died 25 May 1901, in Mills County, Texas. Her birth and death dates appear on her tombstone in the Goldthwaite city cemetery, Mills County, Texas.

On the marriage license recorded in Fayette County, her surname is spelled 'Bogard,' but in her own hand in her Bible, in my possession, the name is spelled 'BOGART.' On the death certificate of her son, my great-grandfather, the 'BOGART' spelling is repeated in the blank for his mother's maiden name, so apparently it is the one accepted by her family.

Although she describes herself as being "of Fayette County, Texas" in the Bible record, I have not been able to locate a family for her. In each census record where I have been able to locate her after her marriage (1870, 1880 and 1900), she reports she was born in Texas.

Any help will be appreciated. TIA
