Thanks, Carroll, for the correction on the name of the Cemetery. I really
pray that I will be able to get there, within the next couple of years.
The only "Houston" MAYFIELD that I have ever heard of was a brother to my
dad, Jolly Friend Mayfield (yes, strangely enough, that's his real name)!
Here's what I have on Houston:
Houston MAYFIELD, b. June 1918, d. May 1919. My grandmother, Sarah Ellen
Ferguson Mayfield, didn't have too much success with seeing her children
grow to adulthood. Out of the three children that she had, only my father
survived. He was a twin, and his twin sister, as far as I know, was named,
Dolly Sue MAYFIELD, b. October 28, 1916, d. 1918. I have been told that
she is buried in the same cemetery as my grandfather, William "Ben" R.
Mayfield, which is the Bates Cemetery. Buried in that cemetery is also my
father's 3rd wife, Betty Sue Morris, b. Aug 26, 1943, d. Dec. 5, 1980.
As for a Mary L. Mayfield, I only know of one Mary Mayfield, the daughter
of George Washington Mayfield, Sr. & Elizabeth Weatherford Jeffery. I don't
have dates on her at all.
Makes me wonder what the "L" stood for. Would be interesting if Elizabeth
named Mary's middle name "Langston" after her mother. So many mysteries
that we probably will never know!
If you would like, I will be happy to send you an outline tree of my family
from the Jeffery connection on down. I don't know how much information you
are interested in, but you are welcome to it.

It is, as you say on the same road that the Combs cemetery but at near the
far western end close to Boswell. Another way to get to it is go south
from Calico Rock along the Izard County side of the river. Turn east near
Boswell. This road that Combs and Robinson cemetery is on is called the

locate unless you know where it is. However it is easy to get to. There
is a beautiful Izard County view along the road as you are going down to
the cemetery. Almost worth the trip just for that.

(Hager) with dates. However there are buried there a Houston Mayfield and
a Mary L. Mayfield. There are no dates for these. Do you know anything
about them (dates) parents, etc...)?
>Right now am furiously working on books for the BYLER Family and the
LANDERS family. It consumes all my time. In August I will be working on
the JEFFERY book and have quite a bit to add. Would be interested in
including anything that would update any descendant of the Jeffery family.
Will start another update of the Cemetery book in September or October and
hope to have it ready by end of year. I have a few more cemeteries to
include from Fulton County along with some additional data of the nature
you mentioned in you e-mail to add.
