Martha Elizabeth Kyle came to the Daily area of Houston County, with her parents around 1851-1852 from Pickens Co., AL. After she married Stephen Box Hallmark, they made their home around the Creek-Shiloh area, also known as Mustang Prairie, where they raised their children. Their two oldest children, Louisa and William H. died in 1866. There are three small headstones in the Bynum Cemetery side by side. The third one is Beulah Kyle the daughter of their first cousin James H. Kyle and Mary "Dicy" Collard.
Around 1865, Mary Dicy Collard, about the age of 7 or 8, became an orphan. She went to live with her aunt and uncle Stephen B. and Martha Elizabeth Hallmark. Her parents were Elijah Collard II, died 1865 and Keziah Hallmark, died 1862, a sister of Stephen's. In 1875, Mary Dicy married James H. Kyle, Martha Elizabeth's nephew. (From Houston County History Book). In 1870, Martha Elizabeth's niece Sarah Kyle, her husband Robert Ballard Bartee and their child Joseph, were living next door. Sarah was the daughter of Joseph Spencer Kyle and Malinda St. John.
By 1880, Stephen and Martha Elizabeth had the orphans of Martha's brother John H. Kyle, living with them. They were Louisa, Mary, John (William Johnson) and Elizabeth Kyle. In 1900, Martha E. was the head of her household, listed as a widow. The 1860, 1870, 1880 and 1900 census show she was the only wife of Stephen B. Hallmark. Submitted by Martha Lynn Dodd
