I am returning to post a follow-up to this message (#429 from 29 March of this year for the benefit of those of you on the JEFFERSON-L list).

A recent research field trip to Greenlawn Cemetery, Groves, Jefferson County, Texas, resulted in the discovery of all but one of the graves sought in the original query. In addition to the markers for Owen Henry ROBERTS, Louise (GIESE) ROBERTS, Wilbert William DOUGHERTY, and May Louise (ROBERTS) DOUGHERTY, I was also able to find the graves of Owen and Louise's son (Owen H. Roberts "Jr.") as well as Wilbert and May's daughter (Barbara (DOUGHERTY) KUECK). The specifics for each of these markers is as follows:


Owen Henry Jr.
June 4, 1914
Sept.3, 1968

Louise Giese
Sept. 8, 1889
Apr. 14, 1973

Owen Henry Sr.
Sept. 23 1885
Jan. 31, 1970


Wilbert William
Aug. 1, 1906 - Aug. 7, 1977

May Louise Roberts
Feb. 24, 1910 - Nov. 14, 1983

Barbara Dougherty
Dec. 16, 1943 - July 21, 1974

Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, I was unable to locate the grave of the previously mentioned Lavenia (MAY) GIESE BOOTHE - my GGaunt. Though I am somewhat confident that her location of death and probable interment was in Beaumont, my recent trip did not afford me the opportunity to search the Beaumont area cemeteries at any great length. If anyone has access to a survey of these cemeteries and would not mind looking for mention of this individual I would be very appreciative. Barring that, if someone can offer contact information for a cemetery office, society, or the like for those cemeteries located in the immediate vicinity of the city, then I could try those sources myself.

To add to the original post, if anyone is researching these lines (either directly or indirectly) I would welcome the opportunity to correspond. Names and dates alone do not tell the story of one's existence and additional facts will be greatly appreciated.
