Mystery Solved

In Reply to: Myers, Grossman and Snyder Mystery by Ted Pack of 961

Some kind-hearted person identified as "Hot Wheels 1943"
(I'm guessing someone born in 1943 who drives a classic muscle car - maybe a GTO - lovingly restored, with 12 coats of candy-apple red paint) looked up four obituaries for me and posted them on the Kaufman County Board.

Here they are:

Terrell Daily Transcript, October 28, 1911

Mrs. David Grossman died at her home in south Terrell today. Interment in the old cemetery. She was 70 years old and had lived in Terrell for about 30 years. A husband, nephew and niece, whom she reared survive. She was a member of the Methodist Church.

Note: if she was buried in the Terrell Pioneer Cemetery, she is in an unmarked grave.

Henry Snyder died Sunday at the home of his sister, Mrs. Myers at age 40 years. He was a nephew of the late Mrs. David Grossman, who reared him, his mother having died when he was very young.
