From CHICOTA, TEXAS 1835-1985, by Roberta J. Woods and Ruth C. Renfro, Henry Publishing, Paris, 1986, p. 134: "Weldon Booth told of a small, lonely grave marker bearing the inscription [above] said to be located in a wooded area about 1 1/2 mile north of the lake [Pat Mayse Lake]. Robert Parsons says the child's father was Max Lee but this is only information obtained. Logic tells us that these two were part of the Lee Family of Rawhide."
