    From Find a Grave, W. W. Glover Cemetery, Dallas, Dallas County, Texas
    http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GScid=1509714&GRid=21425851&

    Birth: Dec. 4, 1822
    Death: Jun. 1, 1881

    Note: DM with Catharine Merdith, husband of Catharine Merdith
    **********
    A note about name spelling: The gravestones for Younger and wife Catharine are crystal clear. However, "Merdith" seems incorrect as does "Catharine." Descendants indicate surname spelling of MEREDITH and given name of Catherine or Katherine.
    **********
    Confusion regarding some listings of Younger also being known as "Tom" or "Thomas" probably arise from another Meredith with the given name of Tom, Thomas and "Tom T." who also was born in 1822. This latter Meredith was born and died in Kentucky and had two wives, neither of whom was Catherine.
