B. F.'s obit says he came here in 1861 with parents
Survivors are wife 3 sons 3 daughters not names
2 brothers, S. E. & Lee
The obit for S. E. Denton b. Jun 21, 1853 is so long I don't remeber if I
m. Dec 8, 1878 Georgia Wikie - she d. Mar 2, 1879
m. Dora Wilkie Nov 2, 1880 born to this union were 5 children
I know I listed the children earlier.
I would say there were no children for Georgia if she m. Dec 1878 and d. Mar
SO ! ! have her death date wrong in my cemetery report for Gassville, I'll
make notes in my books and try to get it corrected when I can.
I think you will find LEE DENTON as Robert Denton in the Gassville Cemetery.
Lee Denton's obit is dated Jul 5, 1935 - b. May 29, 1863 died at age 72.
