Joe Rosson buried in Oliver Springs Cemetery, Comanche Co., Texas

I recently discovered that I have a Rosson connection.

My maternal great-grandmother was Allie Rigsby Crew. I found her and her sisters death certificates and burial place in Oliver Springs Cemetery - Comanche Co., Texas. I was told that Allie's mother was a Foster not a Rosson. So I went off trying to connect the Foster's to the line but I never could.

Allie's sisters, Beulah and Ada have their parents listed as William Rigsby and Bethey Rosson. Luckily, Bethey is also buried in Oliver Springs. I was able to get Bethey's death certificate. Her parents are listed as Joe Rosson and Katherine George. It appears that Joe is also buried in Oliver Springs but I do not have a death certificate and I have not been able to find any cemetery records.

I believe I found Joe and Katherine Rosson in the census' from 1850 through 1880. They are listed below.

Does anyone know anything else about this Joe Rosson?
