Special Request! In a very round-about way I received and interesting puzzle regarding a teacher, presumably of Goliad county and hoped, if you are a resident of that county, that you could lend a hand in solving......
My step-father is a VASSAR.Through many different hands, he received a letter written by the Sheriff of Goliad County to the Teachers Retirement System in Austin, TX.The letter goes as follows:
Dear Sirs: I have an unusual request.I have a tombstone in my office. The name and dates and other information inscribed is:ANNA VASSAR 1903-1967,43 YEARS A TEACHER. I would certainly appreciate any research you can do and if you find any relatives of this woman, I will want to contact them so that they can claim and replace this head stone.Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. signed by Sheriff J.K. McMahan, Goliad County letter dated 25 Feb 1999
I have never located any VASSAR relatives in Goliad County and hoped that some genealogist in the area might have a bit more idea of how to proceed.The only thought I have is to send to the TX Vital Stats for Anna's death certificate as it might give more data.
