I'm just now finding out about my grandmother's family when I was a little girl and would visit her she never mentioned anything about her childhood. At the time she was living in Lampasas. I never knew that her family was involved in rodeos and their love for horses.
In 2010, I decided to take a trip to Texas to check out Peyton Colony with the hopes of meeting cousin Lawrence. I didn't meet Lawrence. I did get to go the cemetery and when I entered the cemetery I got a very eerie feeling and I told me mom something is strange about that cemetery. I have been to plenty of cemeteries and never felt that way before it was like I was being watched and I felt something "heavy" I really can't explain it.
Have you been to the cemetery? Something else caught my attention in that cemetery that it might have to do with why they are buried away from the family. All the Coffees are grouped together and all the City are grouped together but I noticed that Wesley City and Hattie Coffee are buried by the Upshaw families in the corner away from everyone. I would like to think it is because maybe when they died it was the only place to bury them until I started walking around the cemetery looking at death dates and notice that some of the Coffee/City died after Wesley/Hattie. I went into Georgetown, TX and was able to connect with some City relatives and when I started talking about the cemetery they started laughing cause I mentioned the Wesley/Hattie is buried on the other side of the cemetery and they stated that it is probably because of it was a family dispute about Wesley/Hattie getting married but they did not know all the details and they are hoping that I can find out what happened since I'm researching the family tree. Well so far, I have come up with nothing but I truly wished that I would have been told this before my dad died maybe he knew something about it. Do you know anything about this?
