I am looking for information on the marriage of John Madison WHITWORTH [b.
March 6, 1875 MS] and Katrina KOOP (pos. listed as Katherine or Katy) [b.

KLIPPENSTEIN. Any information or help would be appreciated! I would love

Looking for death date and place buried for James F. PARKER. He and his wife
Almeda left Dallas County area in 1890, he listed in the census as having
TB. He died while they were gone to look for land...I think he went somewhere
south of Dallas to find better climate for his TB and died. Family would
like to know when (sometime in 1891) exact date and where he is buried.
