- 1. [TXHARRIS] FERRIES .... Johnson Landing Ferry 
- We're all familiar with the only remaining one - Lynchburg. Others, such as Morgan's Point, Zavalla, etc. have all disappeared.
An inquiry for a possible Texas Historical Marker has come to my desk for information on the old JOHNSON LANDING FERRY.
Can anyone help?
At the end of Johnson Landing Road, near the US Steel plant; off Clinton Road.
Checking my Key Map Atlas, I see it shown at the very bottom of Pg. 495-Z and at the top of 535-D. However, I'm not sure how you get to it. Key Map shows it betw

- 6. Houston Newspapers 
Could someone tell me what newspapers were published in Houston in 1961. I
am trying to find an obituary for my uncle. His name was Herman Kufs and he
died at 1901 Rusk St(Ave?) on either Feb 5 or Mar 2nd. I know that his
daughter was still alive then, but don't know her married name.
I contacted the Houston Chronicle but their online archives only go back to
1985. I also don't know what cemetery he was buried in, so I am hoping that
an obit will give me this info too.

- WOW! I sort of hit the jackpot this afternoon. I recieved the obituary of my
great-grandfathers sister Mary Virginia KELLY. Based upon previous tidbits
I think her husband was a Vernon DOYLE or James DOYLE or James Vernon DOYLE.
Anyway...in the obit is listed quite a few names and relation to Mary
Virginia. Now I have something to go on. I am praying someone out there can
help me find the information.
In the obituary it lists two sons:
G. V. DOYLE of Houston, Harris, TX
S. J. DOYLE of Galveston, TX

was naturalised in 1895. Please could anyone advise me how or where I
might find out about applications for naturalisation in Harris County.
He died in St Joseph Infirmary Houston in 1931. Was this just a general
hospital and is it possible there might be records deposited somewhere?
Any help would be most appreciated.

- 14. Spring Creek Graveyard? 
- Hi to all from Northern California!
Yesterday I came across a Deed, dated 1849, which refers to a "grave
yard" adjacent to the land owned by Jacob (Jack) Croft at Spring Creek.
The deed is from Wm. R. BAKER to S. MANDELBAUM Co. for one acre "above
the city of Houston on the south side of Buffalo Bayou" and also
references "the John Austin Turo league".
Does anyone know if this "grave yard" still exists? I realize that's
not likely, but it must have been substanial enough to be used as a land
- 15. National Archives Researcher 
- I am currently looking for someone who can go to the National Archives. They
always seem to cheat me out of the number of pension file pages and give me
poor copies when I send away my requests. Besides, they are raising thier
prices in July and thier backed up right now with too many requests. If
anyone know someone who can do this for me I would appriciate it. Thank you.

- Hi, Gertrude. I think I can help. I go into Washington DC once a week on
business and I am quite familliar with the National Archives. I would be
happy to get whatever you need as well as for anyone else who is on this
list. For the pension files, complete with all pages (usually up to 50), nice
copies (I make sure of this) $34.00. For millitary files complete $20.00. If
your not sure if your ancestor has a file I will even search for you, check
the file to see if the file exists, and e-mail you back
- 17. Doyle BEARD>Sportswriter in Houston... 
- I am in search of anyone who might know anyone or anything connected with
Doyle BEARD. His mother was my great-grandfathers sister. Based upon ages
my guess would be that Doyle was born around the turn of the 1900's. I know
nothing else about the gentleman. No dates, no places, etc. His mother was
Willie Estelle KELLY.
Thank you for all your help and support.

VERY helpful. I visited there to find my great-grandmother's grave and
they led me right to the plot. They even photocopied everything they had
in their files pertaining to everyone in that plot.
When I got there and realized that my great-grandmother's stone was
sinking and was covered in about two inches of water, they apologised
profusely and had their maintenance crew raise the stone the very next

The cemetery is located on the north side of the street.
It is behind a cute red house which sits near the street & a larger brick
