Date: Mon, 17 Feb 2014 00:44:47 -0700


Further below is burial info for various members of the extended family of
Joseph Poythress & his wife Mary King.

At the top here, is info re the deaths of the 2 Missouri sons of Henry C
[or E] Poythress [the 2nd son of Russell K Poythress] -- the Missouri
nephews of Joe Poythress, of the 1922 Probate record in Tarrant Co, TX:

- From the Social Security Death Index: Frank Poythress, b.20 Dec 1906;
d.27 Mar 1997; zip of last residence 65713 (Niangua, Webster Co, MO); his
Social Security # was issued in MO.

- I was amazed to find that the Frank's brother, Albert, actually died in
Georgia! even though, as shown further below, he was buried in Missouri:
GA Death Index 1933-1998, indexed at FamilySearch as follows [no image was
yet available when I found this]: Albert Poythress, d.23 Dec 1983 in
Laurens Co, GA, age 74, white male, Certificate 45225

FindAGrave.com is a very helpful free website. At its homepage, on the
right side of it, you can "Search 112 million grave records" OR the next
choice is "Search for a cemetery" [notations below in square brackets are
mine].

Many members of this extended family have FindAGrave memorials posted,
thanks to many dedicated volunteers across the country.
