Query: Bradley

I am seeking a newspaper article that may give the circumstances and complete death date of William David Bradley, Sr. who was supposedly killed in a gun fight in May 1902 possibly around Mineola, TX. I know that his family was listed on the 1900 Van Zandt County, TX., census. I would appreciate any help or suggestions in solving this mystery.
Thanks so much,
Joyce R. Bradley <links2ms@hotmail.com>

Silenced Only By The Dawn

Researchers of Grayson, Bandera, Bexar, and Kerr counties in Texas and Tuscaloosa and Randolph counties in Alabama, or Oktibbeha County in Mississippi as well as Doughty, Parker, Pritckett. and Lee families might be interested in a recently published book Silenced Only by the Dawn, A Gallant Woman and her Carpenter, A True Story, according to its author Merry Langlinais.
“The book tells the compelling story of one family, their westward movement from South Carolina and Southern Maryland in the 1700s to Georgia, through Alabama, on to Mississippi after the Civil War and finally settling in Texas,” said Langlinais.
More details are available at merrylanglinais.com or email at xroads@sprintmail.com or write to Merry Langlinais, P. O. Box 135, Medina, TX 78055. The book sells for $24.99 plus $4.00 shipping.

Query: Warren

I am trying so hard to find the burial place of an aunt (by marriage) (Annie Mae Warren) who supposedly died in either Mar. 15, 2000 or 2001.  She is said to have lived at Lake Holbrook when she died.  She was married at the time of her death, according to other relatives to a Mr. Willingham.  She had divorced our uncle, Charlie Hearon.  He is buried in Mineola but I doubt she would be buried near him.  I don’t even know if she is buried in Mineola.  Would you please be able to locate an obituary for her?  Thank you so very much.  Elaine Shelton,  sheltonx2@suddenlink.net
