Can anyone help with these families who lived in Parker Co. during the years from 1855 to 1868. John Blakemore Pinkston and his wife Mary "Polly" Jamieson Pinkston came to Parker Co. about 1855. After Mary's death in 1858 or 1859, John married a young widow who was his neighbor, Elizabeth Wood Reese. She had two small children named George and Ruth Reese when she married John Pinkston in 1859. Does anyone have any information on the Reese that Elizabeth was married to, and what happened to him and the two Reese children? Does anyone know the parents and any siblings of Elizabeth Wood Reese? She named one of her sons William Wood Pinkston so it's possible that her father's name was William Wood. Family tradition says that Elizabeth's mother died when she was young, and she was raised by an older married sister. We believe that Elizabeth was born in Illinois or Iowa. John B. Pinkston's father, Moses Pinkston, came to Texas with the family and died in Parker Co. in 1860. He is listed on the mortality schedule for that year. Can anyone tell me where Moses Pinkston and Mary Jamieson Pinkston are buried? Since they died within two years of each other, I feel they are probably buried in the same cemetery or at least the same area. What cemeteries would have been in existence in Parker Co. between 1855 and 1860? Please help if you can. Thanks.
