FINCH, LEWIS, WARREN posted by Cynthia Corbett on Wednesday, October 20, 1999

Searching for information on the ancestors of Willie Ira LEWIS who was married to Henrietta FINCH, b. 12 July 1912, d. 1 Jan 1989, Winters, Runnels, TX. Both Willie and Henrietta died and were buried in Winters, TX. I know Willie's family originally came from MS. Do not know where Henrietta's family came from. Remember hearing a story about how one family or the other came to TX via covered wagon, don't know when. Also, one of them had siblings whose names were initials only, not whole names. I believe it was Henrietta's side of the family. Many thanks.

ASH, BRANHAM, BURRUS, CRANDALL, HALE, JONES, LIGION, MATHEWS, POOL, WATSON posted by Sylvia Sumner on Saturday, November 6, 1999 reference to your Runnels County inquiry of C. A. WATSON. In Charlsie Poe's book "Runnels Is My County" there are two mentions of a Dr. C. A. WATSON. (1) under the Truitt community, "Doctors ASH and POOL had their offices in a drugstore owned by E. T. BRANHAM. DR. C. A. WATSON CAME IN 1909, BUT MOVED TO CREWS TWO YEARS LATER.", and (2) under the Crews community, "Crews had numerous doctors. Those staying the longest were F. M. HALE, C. A. WATSON, and R. E. BURRUS. Others were Myrick JONES, CRANDALL, MATHEWS and Zachery LIGION. An epidemic of typhoid fever started in the area in 1904 and was not completely under control until 1915. During that time many people died." These are the only two mentions of Dr. WATSON. This probably isn't much help to you, but thought you might like to see what Charlsie had in her book about him..

FAUGHT, RUSSELL, SEAY, SIMPSON posted by Thelma Long on Wednesday, November 10, 1999

Would appreciate information on who to contact about the Pumphrey Cemetery, a little NW of Winters, TX in Runnels Co. Just recently made a visit to West TX to do some research. I have a great, great aunt and cousin buried in the Pumphrey cemetery. In another year or so their graves will have cotton planted on top of them. It is right at the edge of their graves now. In fact there used to be a grave above my aunts, it has cotton planted on it. What if anything can be done about this and who took the fence down? Who gave the farmer permission to use the cemetery to plant cotton on? Would like to have some answers.
