Today in Family History - 20 Jan

My 3rd great-grandmother Magdellen Moseley Guerrant (Baldwin line) died on this day in 1920 in Bedias, Grimes, Texas [1, 2]. She was supposed to be buried by her long deceased first husband in McAdams Cemetery, but the river was flooded between Bedias and McAdams. So, she was buried in Bedias Baptist Cemetery [1].

My grandparents George Avner Baldwin and Adda Wanda Anders were married on this day in 1945 in Huntsville, Walker, Texas [3, 4, 5, 6].
