By now you may have learned the maiden name of Callie, if not it's on the DC for their son (son on the 1910 census)
Callie is the informant on this DC, so information should be fairly accurate.

I'm guessing several of the Martin family may be buried together. Can't find anything on a cemetery named Pleasanton in Karnes Co, TX on Find a Grave site, nor graves for James and William with year of death. Find a Grave is growing at a fast pace, you might keep checking back. GNIS site doesn't show Pleasanton in Karnes Co, TX.

There is a town named Pleasanton in Atascosa Co, TX, which neighbors Karnes. Could the cemetery be just across the county line????

Aha, found it. On Find a Grave you can view a double headstone for J. Fisher and wife Fannie C. Maybe Callie's first name was Fannie? William Smiley is there, too, W.S. Martin.

These people who use nicknames. TX Dth Idx thru 1976:
