Thomas and Nancy (Terry) Carder

I received some great information from a descendant of Nancy Terry and Thomas Carder:

Their son Berryman Carder married Melissa Roper.

Nancy Caroline Carder, daughter of Berry and Melissa, married Thomas Lee Burris, son of Jacob Burris and Emeline Willbanks.

Nancy and Thomas Burris, Nancy's mother Melissa Roper Carder, and Nancy's brother Robert Carder are all buried in Fairy Cemetery in Hamilton County, Texas.

Nancy's sister, Olive Carder Willbanks, is buried with her husband Joe Willbanks in Hico Cemetery, also in Hamilton County.

Nancy and Thomas Burris had a daughter, Selma, who married Marion Lee Agee.
