SURNAMES: GOODMAN Concord Baptist Church, Clay Hill GOODMAN
QUERY: With the help of a dear lady, I have found out that the Clay Hill I was looking for is located in Morris Co. Texas, near Omaha. One of my GOODMAN ancestors were supposed to have lived and died there. Now, I am hoping he is buried at the Concord Baptist Church Cemetery since this is where the community of Clay Hill was. The church is located off FM 144 near Omaha. If anyone had the means to do a cemetery lookup for this cemetery, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you, Rita

QUERY: My 3rd Great Grandmother, Sarah L. (COOKE) GOODGION supposedly died near Daingerfield, Titus CO (now Morris CO) between the years 1848 & 1850. Has anyone done Cemetery Surveys for this area that would help me locate her grave? It is believed Sarah left Maury CO, Tennessee and came to Texas during the spring of 1848, in the company of, at least, one of her daughters, Mary Ann (GOODGION) SKIPPER, Mary's husband, William SKIPPER, and a child or two. There may have been other family members traveling with their troup. Any information would be greatly appreciated!

If anyone would be willing to look at the certificate itself, I can email it as a picture. Thank you for any information.
