      Lynell Cordell wrote that she looked for all Bost's in Texas on the Find-a-grave website and found the following. Since they're in the same block of the same cemetery she assumes that they are Mary Jane Adams and her husband, Alfred.  Another Bost descendant/researcher Lynell had previously talked to said they were divorced, but since Alfred died so early that may not be so.
