 Hi Aurora

As you may know I have been researching the SMITH family

Cemetery and their allied lines..and I appreciated the posting

of the obit for Robert Wilson Davidson but wanted to add a correction.

You have:

Davidson, Robert Wilson

Texas Pvt 4 Regt US MC Apr 5, 1937       

son of Dona Rogers Davidson Bounds

Actually I think he is the grandson of Dona Rogers

Davidson Bounds see obit for confirmation..

Thanks again for all your great obits being posted..
