Raleigh S. Hope Query
Jean Smoorenburg


Trying to find the burial place for a Rolla Sam Hope, who died Nov. 14, 1960. No burial place is listed, but family states the service was in Conroe and burial in Cut n Shoot Texas. His death certificate has him listed as Raleigh S. Hope. Could you help me with a lookup please?

Found Four Records in MCG&HS books:

Unmarked graves of Montgomery County, p 96:

Cockerham Branch Marland Funeral Home
MC Vol. 1 1960-1968 p135 & 136

Montgomery County Cemetery Book Vol. III,
Conroe Memorial Park,  p 41

So there must have been a marker at some point if it was transcribed in the cemetery book. jhs

Raleigh S                                            Mary Jones        
Oct 11, 1887                                     June 10, 1879    
  Nov 14, 1960                                    July 6, 1962
GPS 30 17'.724" N 95 25'.670" W

I (jhs) believe that 1887 date on the death certificate is a transcription error where they transposed the 8 and 7 on the death certificate.

Raleigh aka Rolla Sam Hope was buried in the cemetery and now know where.

So you Decide? When was he born?
1875, 1878, or 1887?
