Six years after placing this webpage on line, I recieved an email from a family researcher, Joel Dunlap.

 He wrote me that They believe the death date is much earlier than orginally listed and he had been in contact with a Lady who wrote or told him

"that when she was a little girl that her Dad took her out there and they painted the fence around it and that there was a stone. The family story goes that Nettie is the only one buried there. The reason is, she made the family promise to bury he there because they had a cabin near there before and it was the happiest time of their life. The Schunke family had always wondered why it was the only grave until they finally heard this story. Supposedly they still maintain the grave once a year. I wish I could get one of their family to take a digital picture of it."


Joel wrote that found Malcom J. McGregor's grave. He was buried in a confederate cemetery which is now Cleburne Memorial Cemetery in Cleburne, Johnson County, Texas.

He died 6 Jan 1903 and is buried in Block 38 Lot 7. On the record does not give a birth but it says he was a Pvt 2nd BN North Carolina Local Defense Troop CSA.

I have other clues and information about the family that I am working on that I am willing to share with others. So please post my contact info on your website.

Thanks, Joel
