In Reply to: RE: obituary lookup for John T. Wagster by James Buckley of 396

TX Dth Idx 1890-1976 --;p=2;c=1320964;t=searchable -- you can view digitized copy of death records.

John Townsen Wagster, b 2 Mar 1875, Double Springs, TN; d 7 Feb 1941, Longview, Gregg Co, TX; widowed; father C.J. Wagster; buried Grace Hill, Longview, TX; informant R.C. Wagster, residence Jackson, MS.

John and Martha are on the 1900 census Lawrence Co, AR, and the 1910 census, too, plus is grandfather, John T. Goodwin, is living with the family.

The nearest match I can find in 1920 is a John as a boarder in Dunklin Co, MO, widowed. Then in 1930 maybe in Union Co, AR. I don't have access to 1930 AR census, just index.

1880 census Sharp Co, AR:

[Looks like son Henry is widowed and Bessie and John are his children???]

You can go to Rootsweb's WorldConnect -- -- and look up David. Plus you can do Henry, too. Several have John Townsen Wagster as son of Henry. You can contact these people, maybe one of them will know more about Martha.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
