I am looking for my great grandmother's burial site. Her maiden name was Susan Catherine Beazley, she married and divorced Frederick Augustus Bedichek. Anyone have knowledge of where my great grandmother is buried would be wonderful. Thanks

: I am looking for a burial site for my great grandmother, Susan C Bedichek, maiden name Beazley of Milam Co. at one time.)


Email forwarded to MCHC members.  I checked 170 Years of Cemetery Records in Milam County, Texas and found no Beazley nor Bedichek found.  I did find Beasley but not to match Susan nor Frederick.


Info forwarded to Mr Bedichek: (the last name is pronounced almost the same but spelled differently)

"I have worked on this one before . . . Don't remember why . . . This is her in 1880 - at that time I found nothing on her after that date.

Name: S. C. Bettercheck
Age: 28
Birth Year: abt 1852
Birthplace: Missouri
Home in 1880: Precinct 1, Hunt, Texas
Race: White
Gender: Female
Marital Status: Divorced
Father's Birthplace: Missouri"

Would suggest searching in Hunt County, TX.


"I assume they are looking for her in Milam County because her ex-husband is buried there , Mayhaps they have not found her in 1880 with that spelling of her name. but her parents are buried in Hunt County."

Trying for the last 48 years to find my great grandmothers burial site. Susan Catherine Beezeley/Beazley Bedichek died before 1899, I think 1898. Any Beezley's or Beazleys' know of her? Thanks


I replied to Mr Bedichek that I have forwarded his request again to members.
