  • I met with a Davis family member  a few months ago in Corsicana and we did research together.  Maude Davis was married to Cloyd Marion Peabody between 1915 and 1925. She was buried with her first husband Othman Davis.  This researcher says that her name is Maude Grayson (Burns) Davis-Peabody.  The researcher says that the name Glasen on her headstone is incorrect and her middle was Grayson.....

Navarro County Sheriff’s deputies discovered Boelter’s former identity when they ran his fingerprints through a national databank.

Sharron was convicted of stabbing a man to death in Alabama in February 1973, and sentenced to 25 years in prison in Alabama. He was made a trustee and allowed into a work-release program. In April 1977, he walked away from the work detail and never came back
