Were is Andrew buried?

I found Andrew Gordon's death certificate in the Texas Death certificates on the Family Search website. He is listed as being buried in the Protestant Home for the Aged cemetery in San Antonio, Bexar Co., Texas. However, the cemetery no longer exists.

According to the San Antonio Genealogical and History Society website, burials were from 1912-1952. When the Home moved the bodies were reinterred.

Here's a page I made for Andrew Gordon on Footnote. Andrew Gordon

My next step is to contact San Antonio Genealogical and History Society.

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?
