2010 Titus County, Texas Queries

Email: Doris Cooley Edmonds

Query: I need to find the burial records on my Brother-in-Law, Paul Edward Anderson, born 17 May 1928 in Morris County, Texas who died on 6 Jan 1993 in Titus, Texas. Could someone please tell me in which Cemeteries of Titus, Texas he might be buried?
Paul married my oldest Sister, Frances Novella Cooley in Marshall County, Alabama, in 1945.
Paul's Father was: William Franklin (sometimes shown as W. F.) Anderson. Paul's Mother was Hattie Killingsworth.
Paul's Texas Birth Index, 1903-1997, record is: Roll Number 1928_0001. The Texas Death Index, 1903-2000 shows "Paul Anderson, Death Date: 6 Jan 1993, Death County: Titus, Gender: Male." The Social Security Death Index for Paul shows: "Paul E. Anderson; SSN: 420-30-9086; Last Residence: 75456 Mount Pleasant, Titus, Texas, United States of America; Born: 17 May 1928; Died: 6 Jan 1993; State (Year) SSN issued: Alabama (Before 1951).
Thank you, in advance, very much for any guidance to Texas Cemeteries that you might be able to suggest to me!

Query: Looking for information on Great Grandfather Joe F. Ferguson born 1855 Mt.Vernon. Looking for information to connect My Joe Ferguson with William and Rebecca Fergerson (spelled differently) of Mt Vernon, Titus county. W and R Fergerson had son Joe in houshold born about 1855 according to the 1860 census. GGrandpa's death certificate indicates he was born in Mt Vernon on 12/29/1855. The only information about his parents on his death certificate is Father:?Ferguson Mother: ?Douglas, no first names. The only picture I have of him was a family photo taken in 1892. The 1900 census ( I am positive that this is him) indicates he was in Franklin county. I just didn't want to assume this was My Joe Ferguson without solid proof. Do you have any suggestions as to how to verify that this is my Great Grandpa Joe, and my GGGrandparents William and Rebecca Fergerson in that 1860 census?

Query: Isaac David SMITH and Nancy (BROOKS) SMITH.

Isaac David SMITH b. 1825 in So. Carolina married Nancy BROOKS in Dawsonville, Lumkin Co., GA. Jan. 22, 1850. Nancy BROOKS was b. 1827 the daughter of Aaron BROOKS and Elizabeth (HEATH) BROOKS in Rutherford Co. North Carolina. Isaac and Nancy had seven children; a. Frances Ann Josephine b. Sarah Jane c. Mary Lucenda (Lucy) d. Aaron Jefferson e. Isabella f. Samuel Moore and g. Isaac Joseph. Isaac Joseph SMITH married Frances Lannie HOLT in Madison County Alabama Feb. 4, 1889. They had four children; a.Isaac Dallas b. Katie Dovie c. Robert Samuel and d. Elsie O, who was born in Titus County in 1903. I hope to find any information on this family in Titus County. The children all eventually moved away to Oklahoma and Arkansas and the history of their parents becomes very sketchy. I am not a researcher and I am not seeking this information for compensation. Katie D. SMITH was my Great Grandmother. God rest her soul. Any help would be deeply appreciated.
