  1. Wow, you all have done an amazing job. It took me months to go through 4 lists of Lawrence Chapel Cemetery and compile and identify as much as I could, and had some help with some families. Susan Goldsworthy put it up on her site.

    I have some of the people in my database that were buried at Pond Springs. I do tie into the Olive/Oliver, and other people you have been so generous to share information on.

    I think the Tuttles may tie to William Rufus Tuttle b. 9-3-1855, AL who m. Mary Texanna Wynn, dau. of Mary Elizabeth Olive and George Thomas Wynn.

    Thanks for sharing.

    • Thank you so much. Please do share with me any info you might have on anyone buried there. Unfortunately, I have discovered that Mr. Tuttle is NOT buried in Pond Springs Cemetery; he is buried in Cedar Park Cemetery.. Thanks again and keep in touch.

    4. Ekrharah: only Wm. ( Willie A., Willie, Bill) in the
    “Texas Marriages, 1837 – 1973”
    5. Ehvhardt: only Karl in the “Index to Naturalization Records”

    Cemetery”

    I could continue this list yet, but these are the most serious examples of the search very difficult.
    Who’d be interested in it can check all the information in Internet. Maybe I’ve made mistakes. I am far away from America and I have not access to everything.
