Hoyte Sessions Gilstrap was born in Crosbyton TX on July 17, 1913 to Tom and Belle Sessions. She would love to have been known as a pioneer - her family traveled with all their belongings in a covered wagon to Alto NM when Hoyte was 4 years old and lived on farming claims in NM until Hoyte was 12 years old. In 1925, the family moved to Baylor County TX and Hoyte lived there the rest of her life. She was a school teacher for about 3 years, then married Paul Gilstrap on December 23, 1935 at Seymour TX. She and Paul had 3 children: Vance, Terry and Maxie.
