Ruby....You are very welcome. I must tell you that I, too, cried when I found the death certificates for Ralph, his wife and little children. So, so sad! Can't even imagine receiving such news. You know it was just devastating for Terrell and daughter Maggie. After I sent you the info last night, I found a listing of the graves in the Rio Vista Cemetery, but they are not among the burials. Perhaps none of the family have tombstones. I would imagine there would have been a newspaper account of the tragedy. Here are a couple of places that might be able to help you with that, if you would like to pursue it. Here is the Cleburne Library site:

Here is a link to the Johnson County Genealogical Society. They will do lookups.

You know, Ruby, perhaps also asking one or both of the above to see if they can find an obituary for Terrell might help you with Maggie's family. Terrell's death certificate gives her married name as Maggie Wilson. If she had children, there may still be family members living in Texas. If you can find the name of Maggie's husband, I will be happy to help you try to track her line.

Wishing you well....Pauline
