Hey Gladys, I've seen the headstone of James C. Hathcox at the Yantis Cemetery on Find-a-grave and I have a problem with the death date of March 14, 1907.
In 1909: I, J.C. Hathcox, do hereby make application to the Commissioner of Pensions, etc, etc. signature .... J. C. Hathcock Sworn to and subscribed before me this 5th day of July A.D. 1909. R. M. Smith, County Judge, Wood Co., TX
He is also on the 1910 Federal Census for Wood Co., TX married 2nd time for 6 years with his second wife, one daughter, his 2nd wife's mother and sister at home. And next door to his son, Dave. These Ferrer women can be found in 1900 in Barbour Co., AL living with Henry Ferrer, son of Harriet.
Check out the 1870 Upshur Co., TX census. There are two Caroline Hathcox women. One white and married to James Hathcox with one child. And one black one, age 30, married to a J. C. Hathcox, age 30, with three children.
Is the Yantis Cemetery an all white cemetery? Because our James C. Hathcox did not die in 1907. Is the James C. and Caroline Hathcox buried at Yantis black or white?
