|Tracy Bale Flowers||Edward Lewis Bale|
I am a descendant of Henry Bale and Ann Goff. My grandfather John Elbert Bale was born in Farmersville Tx in 1887 where Edward Lewis Bale moved to from Ky. We are related but I haven't found exactly where yet in the tree. My father submitted a DNA sample for Ancestry.com but I am still searching...I wonder if you have a photo of Edward...I would like to see if there is a family resemblance. My ancestor Johann Heinrich Behl- Henry Bale originally came from Germany. His son Jacob is who my family descends from. They were from Kentucky and traveled to Texas. It would be wonderful to be able to see more photos of any of these Bale's. There are so few photos submitted on Ancestry.com for our families. Sincerely, Tracy Bale Flowers.
|Rose Carpenter||Sarah Gallman Estes|
I am the great-great granddaughter of Sarah G Estes. I was wondering if you have any idea where she is buried. The last record any of the Estes family has found was when she was living with her son George and she applied for her widow's pension. Her husband is buried in Double Springs, AL in a cemetery that only has about 7 graves. I don't believe she is buried there, if so, she has no marker. I think she may be buried at Mt. Vernon Cemetery since her parents and George are buried there and she had lived with George.

I have added photos of the headstones for the Carter family at Grace Hill and saw your flowers. Do you know the story about this family and would you share with me how they all died in 1943? Thanks.
|N.J "Joanna" Patterson||RE: felix landers|
You may not remember this, but you and I corresponded some years back I am the descendant of James H., the brother of Jinnoah and Joanna. I guess we both have worked on the history of this Landers family for many years.
I remember seeing Felix as a child once. We often spent time in East Texas, as families were a lot closer then, and visited each other very often. He dropped by my grandfather's house in Pritchett. I think they called him "Uncle Dick" then. He had a beard and a walking cane, and the two dogs with him.
I remember the family all thought well of him, although I could sense they thought him a little strange. That was the only time I can remember seeing him.
If there is anything that you would like to add to his memorial,maybe a paragraph or two, please feel free to send it to me and I will certainly post it on there.
Thanks for writing, and keep in touch.
|N.J "Joanna" Patterson||RE: Joanna Landers|
I hadn't noticed that Joanna had been left off that list. I found one she was on and have corrected it. Thanks for pointing that out.
|N.J "Joanna" Patterson||RE: Felix Grundy Landers|
I have the same picture you do with Amanda in it. However, the Felix in the picture with Amanda is NOT her husband. He is much too young, so it has to be her son, Felix, born in 1859..."The Wanderer," which would be the same one on the horse.
Yes, he did live to a ripe old age, but he lived the way he enjoyed most, however strange it was. I suppose he checked into the nursing home when he was too old and sick to wander anymore, and probably had out-lived all his relatives.
My gg grandfather is your gg grandmother's brother, also brother to Felix.
|Brenda A. Darbyshire||Mary Ann Jones Knighton|
All of the marked Knightons are photoed and posted to this graveyard at Benevolence. There are about 4 people researching the Knightons and none would be left out. She may be buried here, but no marker exists.
|phantomphreak||RE: Graham Cemetery|
Thanks Carole, I really enjoyed finding the little cemetery, and never once did I feel scared. Living in Kentucky, most of the time the folks are so nice and helpful. I had already thought about someone finding me in the midst of my "rummaging", and all that they could do was ask me to leave. I didn't see any "No Trespassing" signs, so I figured I was safe. Just being in the woods with all of those people that are there and know that most of them were never going to be found, saddens me.I also saw a portion of a stone building there. Do you suppose that there might have been a church there? I also found a large stone crypt-like structure. It's a very interesting place and I plan on returning someday. Tammy
Hello! I took the list of your photo requests in Graham cemetery. This has to be the most remote place I've ever seen! I turned around at the end of a gravel and mud road and happened to catch something out of the corner of my eye...A tombstone! As I looked into the thick trees, I spotted more markers. The entire place was overgrown, very bad! There were dozens of grave stones there, most of them had already lost the writing on the front, or sunk into the ground so deep that they couldn't be read. I did manage to take pictures of every stone that was legible. I couldn't find the ones you requested, but I did find a Ruben Bale and a different Jacob Bale. There were so many stones there without any writing. I wish I could have found the ones you needed...I don't think that anyone has been back there in years. If you have any more information that I could use to locate them, please let me know.
