Sarah was the daughter of William Riley Seaboalt and Sarah Jane Rowland who are buried beneath the cedar trees at the south end of the cemetery. Sarah was born in either Parthenon or Mt. Judea township, Newton County, Arkansas on May 4 1868. She married Christopher Columbus Coyle of Grayson County, Kentucky on October 14, 1888. The couple lived near Avalon. Sarah died only 13 months after their marriage, as a result of child birth trauma, on November 28, 1889. Her first and only child, Sarah Isabelle "Belle" Coyle, who was born 10 days earlier on November 18, 1889, survived the birth and went on to grqw up, marry and raise a large family.
After his wife Sarah died, Christopher Columbus Coyle returned to Grayson County, Kentucky with his young daughter Belle. He remarried, had two more children, and lived out his life in Kentucky dying there August 5, 1933.
As their daughter Belle was growing up, she remained close to her grandfather William Riley Seaboalt and her Seaboalt cousins in Ellis County. As she was growing up in Kentucky, she often traveled back to Ellis County by train to spend part of her summer vacation with her grandfather where she developed a close relationship with her aunt, uncles and cousins. She was particularly close to my grandmother, Mary Jane Seaboalt, who was just one month older than Belle. They exchange letters by US Mail on almost a weekly basis for the rest of Belle's life.
In 1905 Belle inherited her mother Sarah's share of her grandfather's William Riley Seaboalt's estate. After she married Walter Oldham of Kentucky in 1913 she came back to Ellis County to farm. Their first two children were born in Ellis County and the third child in Navarro County. In 1919 Walter and Belle moved to Union County, NM where they had two more sons and lived there the rest of their lives.
