In doing a survey on the Ganado City Cemetery, I found the
marker for C. Redman (Christian/Christopher) and his
wife, Jane. C. Redman is listed as being in the
First TX Cavalry, CSA. He died in 1932 and he and his wife both received
Confederate Pensions from the State of TX. I
have emailed the TX State Archives for a copy of their pension records.
This is just FYI; they are not related to me but maybe someone else
researching Jackson Co will be.

"[A]t one time there was a cemetery located in Texana that was
known for the Cival War Soldiers and Vets. I had my g.g.grandfather buried there
and he was not in the Civil War. You may already know that Texana is now a 'city
under the lake'. When the Lake was being built and the Dam was being built, all
the remains in the cemetery were supposedly moved to Edna Cemetery or where ever
the families requested the remains to go. Edna Cemetery, Memory Gardens, does
not have any record of the re-interred remains."

The WHITTINGTON Cemetery should be listed as WILKERSON-WHITTINGTON
Cemetery, please!! The first to be buried there were our ancestors,
Allen & Sarah WILKERSON. They, also, settled there first. The land was
sold to their dau, who had married to a WHITTINGTON.
