|Weep not he is at rest.|
Staff in this library department have developed indexes for birth, marriage, and death announcements in the local Denton Record-Chronicle newspaper for many years since 1909. (As part of my practicum, I developed a user's guide for the indexes). Using these indexes, I was able to find the following articles on the microfilm of the newspaper's back issues:
|Marvin/Mark Ellis Gresham burial notice, 10 February 1941, section 1, page 2, column 5|
|Betty Dickson Gresham burial notice, 21 November 1976, section A, page 2, column 4|
|"News from Krum" includes Gresham baby boy birth and death, 16 December 1916, section 1, page 5, column 6|
|Gresham baby boy birth and death, 11 December 1916, section 1, page 3, column 7|
On March 16, 2006, my husband and I drove up to Krum Jackson Cemetery and took the following photos, as well as the one at the beginning of this post, which shows the words engraved on the top of the baby's headstone.
Inf. Son of
M.E. & Bettie Gresham
Born Dec. 9, 1916
Died Dec. 10, 1916
Engraved on the top of the stone is:
Weep not he is at rest.
