Notes for Josias Gray Cartwright:
The old Cartwright Place is located near Prairie Lea, Texas. There is an old rock house which was the family's original house built in 1835. The family lived there for 17 years until they built the larger house in 1852. I have pictures of the houses in 1968 and in 2006. There is a small family cemetery located behind the house. Josias Gray, his wife Phanata, and three of their children, Jessie Gray, Augustus, and Nancy Laura are all buried there.
The Cartwright place evidently passed to the daughter, Joanna Cartwright, who married John Thomas Fulshear. Then it passed to their daughter Ella who married Lemuel Allen. The Allen family owned the property until 1996 when it was sold to Terence and Janice Todd. They are both professors at the University of Texas in Austin. At some point the house was remodeled and added on to in the rear of the house. We visited the property in October 2006 and took pictures. The place is really beautiful.Mr Todd had a fence placed around the cemetery.
