Subject: Walnut Cemetery 1 Mile West of Davis circa 1911
Date: Saturday, February 13, 2016
Surnames: COURTNEY, WILLIAMS
I have been looking for the burial location of my gg-grandmother Mary Ann WILLIAMS COURTNEY for many years, posted on this site way back. The Davis News said that she died in Davis and was buried at Walnut Cemetery 1911. Well, I have a new clue. A relative visited the gravesite in 1935 and I received the notes of the location from that trip today. It says that is was in a field 1 mile west of Davis. At that visit it was on private property and there were a handful of graves there. I have attached the notes that I received which are part in shorthand, along with the obit.
Looking at my map, this could be on either side of the Washita River and I remember my dad telling me about how the river used to flood its banks when he was little so maybe that is why we can't find it.
I am hoping that perhaps someone might recall a small graveyard in this location. TY in advance.
