I am interested in learning more about Agnes SURMAN, who passed away in Garza County, Texas on 26 August 1991. If I have the correct individual, her maiden name is HARMON. She is the daughter of John Edward HARMON and Irene ROBERTSON. Agnes was born in Washington County, TX around 1896. I would like to find her obituary as well. Thanks.

Garza Co. History Book "Footprints" printed in 1982. Memories of Buggies, Babies and Post: excerpt: A pretty, dark haired teacher named Agnes Harmon was visiting some cousins when she caught the doctor's eye. Although he said it was she that was out to nail her a husband, he was a very attentive suitor" page 161. Two children, Rosemary Surman Justice, and Arnold Surman, killed at age 21 in a plane crash while attending the same medical school as his father. page 124 and 125 re: Charles L. Pickett, wife Julia Florence Robertson b. 10 Feb 1888, Washington Co. TX "Agnes Surman came to Post in 1914 at the request of Mrs. Pickett, her cousin, to teach school near Justiceburg." Much more info about the Surman family, especially doctor Surman.

(Note I am not related nor am I researching these names, just happened to have the Garza Co. History book)

Thought I'd let you know that the daughter of Agnes Surman and Dr. Surman died a couple of weeks ago. She had married a Justice and I believe she died in Lubbock.
