Query: Warn

I’m trying to find the name of the cemetery that Mathilda (Martllie) Warn and/ or Charles Lee Warn is buried. All the family knows is that  Mathilda Rebecca Pankey born March 26, 1894 in Pritchett to Leroy and Mary Pankey, married Albert Warn in 1913.

They owned A. Warn Meat Market Produce and Grocery in Hawkins in August 1918. A fire broke out and destroyed the building owned by Mrs. Minnie Cobb and having no insurance, they apparently never reopened (newspaper said “the A.Warn restaurant)

They had three children: Helen Louise, Fawn Jeanette and Charles Lee Warn. Charles died in November 1919 and Martillie died Dec 10, 1918 in Hawkins. The kids were taken from Albert and were raised by relatives.

I have tried to find graves/obits for them. Family believes they were buried in Quitman for some reason, (Helen was born there in 1914.)

Can you help me with the name of the cemetery in Quitman where they are buried (or any other info)?

  1. Try this link. i found a possbli connection on findagrave.com. http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=Warn&GSfn=Albert&GSby=1895&GSbyrel=before&GSdyrel=all&GSst=46&GScntry=4&GSob=n&GRid=36235121&df=all&. I hope this is helpful. I follow the queries posted on the wood county website. I live in Utah and do research at the LDS family history library. If I can help with any research out here let me know.

  2. Hello: I do not find any records that you requested, however, I do find a marriage record for; A. WARN TO EFFIE WILLIAMS on May 18, 1919, # 14272, Volume H, Page 55, Wood County Records. Will try to find other records, such as OBIT, on microfilm as I have the time.

    • Yes, Albert married Effie after Mathilda died. With research… Albert and. Mathilda Warn married in Louisiana and moved to Wood County, Texas. Three children: Helen 1914, Fawn 1917, Charles 1918. Mathilda died 1918 maybe in December. Albert married Effie 1919. Charles Lee Warn died sometime shortly after that. The girls were told “momma and Charles died” and they were taken away to live with Aunts/Uncles because Albert could take care of them. I now believe Effie and Charles died. Still in Wood county.
