Rod and Sandy...I was interested to note that Jim Bourland listed his mother as his only living relative. His youngest sister was my ggrandmother...Melissa Comer Bourland Forsyth. She was very much alive as was at least one of her sisters..Molly. I am assuming this was Mary Jane who married a David Lynn in Brown Co TX in 1884. My grandmother grew up with tales of her Uncle Jim who was Comer's favorite brother. The stories of his death passed down by my grandmother, proved to be fact for the most part. My uncle, Marion Smith did some of the same research you two have done and came up with about the same information. I thought his report said Jim was buried in a cemetary south of town, not north. Have these been checked as well. The information that his mother was living in Canadian Tx in 1895 strongly suggests that her name may have been "Riddle" by now as I have a copy of a marriage license of Lewis Riddle and MJ Bourland. Wasn't sure if it was Martha or her daughter MJ. Lewis Riddle was previously married to one of Martha's sisters. We don't know what happened to Charles Bourland. The mystery continues!
