Pearsons Chapel

About 1870, Aunt Frances who was married to George Lockett, a young blackman, now both free slaves moved to Houston County with the family to the community of Nevilles Prairie, which is now the Pearson Chapel area.

Aunt Frances became midwife to many of the families on Neveilles Prairie. The first baby she delivered had been Ralph Greenleaf Lundy, he was born in 1867.

Known as Aunt Frances, she was loved and revered by all until her death.

Aunt Frances was the informant on her son Walter's death certificate in 1928. She stated her maiden name was Estes and she did not know where she was born.

Shown born June 1844-1845. Census records show Father born in Africa and mother born in Georgia. In the 1900 census it shows her the mother of 3 children with 1 child living in 1900.

Family links: 
  George Lockett (1836 - 1909)
  Walter Lockett (1864 - 1928)*
*Calculated relationship
Aunt Frances' grave is not marked. I feel she is buried next to her husband's grave, that is marked with a stone.

Note: Source: TXDC Informant was Jim Jones from Lovelady. He stated she was about 90 years old, and died from old age. She was a widow and he did not where she was born, only she was retired.

Do not stand by my grave and weep; I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blows, I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. Do not stand by my grave and cry, I am not there.

I thought of you with love today. But that is nothing new. And days before that too. I think of you in silence. I often speak your name. Your memory is my keepsake. With which I'll never part. God has you in his keeping. I have you in my heart.
