I believe my GreatGranfather, Reverend George Mercer Harrell is buried in the Bethel Cemetery in Frisco City, Texas. He was, according to family history, a Baptist preacher, who may have started a Baptist church in the area. Interesting that he may be buried in a Methodist cemetery. If anyone has a photo of his marker in this cemetery, I would be glad to arrange to have a copy. If there is any other information known about him, I would be happy to learn of it. Thank you.

What is your postal address? 2612 Surrey Woods Court, Flower Mound, Texas 75028
Surnames in Collin County? Klepper, Stults, Bell
I would like to confirm if Emma Klepper Stults was the daughter of Joseph Klepper who donated the land for the Old City Cemetery. Emma Klepper was my great-great-grandmother.
I would also like to know if Collin County records show the death date for Henry Bascom Bell, circa 1900 - 1905. He was my great-great-grandfather and migrated to Collin County from Georgia in the late 1890's. I know he lived in Plano, Collin Co. His 5th son, Ralph W. Bell, was born there in 1898 and I found the following article about him in, "Plano, Texas: The Early Years". It is known that Henry Bascom lived in Collin County, Texas and the following excerpt from this article substantiates his whereabouts at the turn of the 20th century: "By 1900, Plano officially had only 1,304 inhabitants." Among the businessmen who were listed in the 1900 census...."Henry Bell, a carpenter."
Thank you for your assistance.
