My great grandfather Francis David Scott POND is buried in IOOF cemetery in Colorado City.  I have no knowledge of him being a Civil War Vet, yet he is listed as such as is his brother John Broadway POND.  Can someone tell me where this info was obtained?  Is there perhaps a marker on his grave.  If someone could check the cemetery for me I need to verify his wife, Mary Susan PISTOLE POND is buried next to him.  I saw a list from that cemetery one time and she was not listed, however I have folder from funeral home saying she was buried there.  In fact I have quite a few relatives buried there.  At this time I am recovering from a broken ankle and won't be visiting any cemeteries soon.  I don't have the dates in front of me but I think FDS POND died in early twenties and Miss MOLLY died middle thirties.  Are there any other POND or PISTOLE researchers out there?  Be glad to share any info I have as well as pictures.

I am a direct descendent of Francis David Scott POND who appears on your list as a veteran of the Civil War buried in Colorado City.  I do not have that information, nor do I recall it ever being mentioned in the family.  He was born in 1848, a little young, but maybe not.  His brother John Broadway POND, a Baptist minister was older and is also listed.  Would be grateful for details on their service and where this info was obtained.

I have a baby picture made on a post card.  On the back it says Little ...ietta WHITE age 6 weeks.  This was in an album with black paper glued to it. I was able to get most of the black off to see what it says, but the first few letters of the first name I am not sure of.  It looks like an L and may be Loretta or Louetta.  This was from a family who lived in Colorado City, Texas, and could be related to NEWBY, HILL, WALDEN, SEALES. Previously were in Parker Co., Tx..... also.  I would love to find a family for these pictures.  Wynelle Chaney Holden
