need some help. looking for grave of Mary Jane Weir Whittiker.  She was living in Quitman with granddaughter Sarah Jenetta Luman in 1920.  She doesnt show up again in any census, so i expect she died (she was 84 and getting a check from the county for being a poor). 

Working full time and cant get to the courty house or list of cemeteries. Any help would be appreated.

Another idea I like comes from a March 2008 meeting at the North Platte, Nebraska Genealogical Society:
"The Genealogy Kitchen Sink is fast approaching. That's what the North Platte (NE) Genealogical Society members are calling the March meeting. It's like a mini-fair where members can bring displays of projects, family treasures, ideas, books, ..."

Thomas Shaw served in the Confederate Army from Alabama. After the
war, with his wife and ten children, left their home near Vernon, Lamar Co,
AL and migrated to Quitman, Wood Co, TX. He was a farmer for most of
his life. He had lost part of his hand in the war and wore a specially
designed glove with a strap to hold implements and tools such as an axe
and hoes.
Mary Jane and Thomas Jefferson Shaw had two sets of twins. First William
A. (Billy) and Mary Elizabeth (Betty) in 1859, then Andrew Jackson and
Thomas Jefferson, Jr. in 1869.

I wanted to share this family photo of the Shaw family of Wood Co. Mary Jane Maddox married Thomas Jefferson Shaw. and had 11 children. They were my husband's grandparents. Thomas died in June of 1900 and 1900 was written on this photo. As Thomas Sr. is not in photo it is possible that this was taken as the family gathered for his funeral

My offer of the PAF file was intended to be by email attachment only. I am getting requests for CDs and that was not my intent.
The file is quite large, so be patient.
