This is Fount and Annie Blackwell's headstones. They are buried at Rowe Cemetery, Hedley, Donley County, Texas. Also buried here is 2 of their daughters, 2 of their sons and 3 of their grandsons, also 2 sons-in-law and 1 daughter-in-law. Fount Blackwell is one of John H. Blackwell and Sarah Elizabeth (Ward) Blackwell's sons.

Below is a copy of the obit for Fount Streetstone Blackwell. This came from the newspaper either at Clarendon, Texas or Hedley, Texas. Even though this obituary has his middle name listed as "Street" it was really Streetstone. None of us have any idea where that came from! Fount was the oldest child and first son of John Hamilton Blackwell and Sarah Elizabeth Ward. Sarah was John's second wife. Ailsey Elizabeth Rose was John's first wife.

Fount passed away on May 24, 1964 in Memphis, Hall County, Texas.
