I found address info on Como Cemetery listing. Also, in it was the name of one I was looking for: B.L. VANCE. His name is Benjamin Lawrence VANCE.

I have more info about him...dates, etc, he was born 24 May 1840, and died. 14 June. 1923, in Confederate Veteran's Home in Austin (Travis) TX. His stone in Como Cem. is eroded and I'm in process of procuring a CSA Vet's stone from the Veteran's Admin. Benjamin was bn in Kentucky, fought throughout the War in Kentucky 1st Calvary Regiment, but by 1880, he was in Grayson Co. then Hopkins, and lived there until his last years.
I would be glad if someone that has access could check if an obit from 1923, was in the local paper there.
