  2. My aunt was Dorothy Louise Christensen who married Martin Albert Small Jr. Both are buried in Albuquerque, New Mexico. “M.A.” (as he was called) died in 2005, and my aunt died in 2006.

  3. I am the grandaughter of Ralph Hays and great grandaughter of Granville Hays. Your article says Bob Hays was married in Burton Missouri, Scott county, I don’t know of Burton but there is a Benton Missouri Scott county where Ralph Hays lived.Aunt Hazel and Aunt lillian lived in California. I would like to talk to someone about some of these relatives,

  4. I am researching the Houston family of Decatur County and when reading some old deeds (c1850) I find reference to a Graham Creek. I can find no current day reference to a Graham Creek. I believe it to have been located in Range 8, Section 9 in the vicinity of today’s Johnson’s Creek and Bear Creek – I’m guessing it is close to the Barnett Cemetery. I’m hoping someone knows where Graham Creek is/was.
