|Bill Boyd||RE: William A. Walston|
Thanks for your reply. I met Young Bird a couple of times at the Walston Reunions that are held in Palestine, TX. He was a distant cousin. My branch of the family lived in Milam and Falls County. Thanks again for sharing your photos.

The black and white photo you added to my uncle Albert Ray Blankenship's page is not a picture of him. It is a photo of my grandfather Albert B Blankenship. I request that you remove and correct. Thank you
|Bill Boyd||William A. Walston|
I saw the photo that you posted of William A. Walston. Are you related to the Walston's? Do you have any more photos of the Walstons? I am a descendant of Artempia Walston, sister of William A. Walston.
|TTB||RE: Mildred S. Holbrook Sloat Harrison|
Looking at the Cuyahoga Co., recorders web site, it appears that Mildred was involved in a number of land transactions:
1935 as Holbrook received three properties from Ira and bought another
1936 as Holbrook sold one property received from Ira
1939 as Sloat sold a property - Henry signed release of dower
1941 as Sloat bought two properties on Maple Street in Chagrin Falls
1944 as Harrison sold one property - Ernest signed release of dower - Notary signed in Pinellas Co., FL
1947 as Harrison sold Maple St. property - Ernest signed release of dower - Notary signed in Lowndes Co., GA
Copies of the deeds are all available on-line.

|Rick Lawrence||RE: 61612720 son Joseph|
Hello Mr. Johnston..thanks for your note. I did not put Joseph in as one of the children as I could not verify which Joseph George was the right one pplus I did not find anything to show his correct DOB/DOD or who his wife was and her DOB/DOD. I know a lot of these old families info is somewhat speculative but I try to be as accurate as possible. since you are a direct descendant of his, I will post the info you provided since you would know more abt what is correct than I would. But I still need his wifes/wives info if you have it available.

|Mary Urban||RE: Photo of Elizabeth|
I will try to send you the story about Jarett Hastings. I notice that yahoo users and I sometimes have trouble getting our messages to go through. Some do and some don't, so we'll see if this one does.
|Mary Urban||RE: Photo of Elizabeth|
Actually I was told the couple photo was of Bledsoe Holder and wife Elizabeth "Betsy" Stewart. If so, it looks like a wedding photo, with her holding a large (I assume) Bible. They married about 1815 so really don't know if it is that old. I am hoping someone in the Holder family has a positive identification of this couple. Do you think it could be Betsy and Bledsoe??
My message to your email didn't go through, so will copy here what I had written:
Thanks for the photos and documents you've sent. I was especially happy to see the Holder Blacksmith shop! Did Bledsoe Holder do blacksmithing?
I am happy to see the Indian roll card for Elizabeth Evans. I didn't know her married name before this. Do you know anything about her family? What her husband's name was or any of her children? She was the oldest child of Lewis Holder and Sarah Looney but I can't find her as a married woman in the census. Did they live in Grayson County, or in OK?
That was a sad thing, that Lewis was killed by a relative (Jarett Hastings) and left a large family of children for his wife to raise. And then the Holders "got even" and killed him about 10 years later. I wonder what happened after they were arrested and put in jail. Do you know "the rest of the story"?
Now I have a question also about Burton A. Holder's son Alexander B. Holder. Do you know what the B. in his name stood for? Was it Burton or Bledsoe?? Or something else? Do you know if he married or where he lived?
The Holders are a large and interesting family! Thanks so much for sharing
Where do you live? We are tentatively planning a trip to see my sisters in central Texas in September, going through Arkansas and then to Dallas where my brother lives, then on down to Comanche County.
Thanks for writing, and sending the photos!
|TTB||RE: Mildred S. Holbrook Harrison|
Sounds like you have a difficult problem to solve: unfortunately, I don't think I can be of help. While I have the usual information about Mildred from 1900 to 1940 and information about Henry Sloat, her first husband, and his family, I have no knowledge of her second husband.

I just added a little more information. Please see my "Portage County (1)" tree on ancestry.com
I'm working on a project for my school reunion right now. If you will remind me in about a month, I can again revisit that family.
|skye||RE: Mildred Holbrook Harrison.|
So sorry, I can't tell you a thing. I didn't even have her husband's first name. All I knew was that she was born c. 1896 and was married to a Harrison. Wish I could tell you more.
