Boze Cemetery — View all Interments
At 10 a.m. on the morning of 15 Oct 1881, Josiah S. Boze paid the county clerk $1 to record his purchase of "24 acres more or less" in Fannin County, Texas. He had paid $350 to W. T. Holeman and wife E.E. Holeman for the property. Almost 20 years later, on 1 Feb 1900, J. S. Boze and his wife Eliza Boze purchased an additional 50 acres from A. J. Moore. Land prices had gone up. This 50 acres, cost them $1200! For some reason, the deed was not filed for record until 26 Jun 1900.
Josiah and Eliza Boze are buried in what used to be the front yard of their home.
Census records indicate that this couple had no children, although the 1930 census shows them both in advanced years with a 10 year old "daughter", Mary, in the household. The word "adopted" is recorded next to her name.
Someone (not related to the Boze family) sent us the orginal warranty deeds for the two transactions described above. Since there are no apparent direct descendants, we are happy to return these to someone showing a direct a familial relationship.
