End of Survey.

Note about A. J. Selby buried in Ozment Cemetery: Sometimes it is interesting to do some limited research about a person.   I found this woman on the 1900 Cooke Co. census with husband Isaiah. They're family # 276.  Her name was JANE A. SELBY and not A. J. as found on her stone.   Jane was born in Indiana and had twelve children but only seven were alive in 1900.   Isaiah was 62 years old and I suspect he is also buried here, possibly one of the unknowns found beside her.
