    I saw your entry on Katherine Redus Durr and wanted to post both her and Lewis
    Durr's death. They both died 27 May 1915 in Waco, Bosque Co,Texas. Lewis
    killed Katherine and then himself. Family lore is that by Berry Franklin
    Redus when he talked to their landlady when he went by train from Hattiesburg
    to pick up Katherine's body. The landlady said that Lewis drank alot and was
    extremely jealous of Katherine. (She was a beautiful woman.) Berry Franklin
    took his daughter's body back to Mississippi and buried her in the Bennett
    Cemetery on Lakeview Road in Hattiesburg. During the Depression the cemetery
    fell into ruin and in1944, the family had her body and those of 4 other family
    members (Berry Franklin, Albert,and Allie Redus and Ann Redus Garner (infant
    daughter of Lora Redus Garner)) moved to the Highland Cemetery in Hattiesburg.
    I have the funeral notice of Katherine and will be happy to send you a copy by
    email if you would like it. I also have a picture of Katherine, Lewis,and his
    sister, Lula, while vacationing in Bourne, Tex
