Sandra Stone
Hello my name is Sandra Stone and Sam D. Stone was my grandfather. My father was William Samuel Stone, and Francis Melton was my Aunt. I have been researching the Stone line for many years and visited the grave of Annie Chenault Stone and their twin girls who died, Sam's first wife and children in West Texas. While I was young I do remember Aunt Frank, Aunt Lilly but not much about Uncle Ralph Stone. I remember going to the family place on Chaha Rd. for family reunions and can describe the house and yard to this day. Strange what we remember!!

My great grandfather was Thomas Stone who came to Texas in 1853 (this is the earliest record I have of him being here)as he and Elizabeth Ross were documented as the first to be married when Dallas became a county. I have not been able to find anything on Elizabeth's family or her death but Thomas would go on to marry my great grandmother Ermanando, Erma, McDougal before he died in 1896(?) No death certificate or burial has been found for Thomas and at this time he is believed to have been buried on his property which is now a part of Lake Ray Hubbard. This land was part of his original land grant in 1853. While there is much information I am looking for I would especially like to have any information any of you might have that could lead me to Thomas and Elizabeth and I would like to know more about Sam and Annie. Sam married my grandmother Mandy Beulah Dunn after Annie passed away. I also show that after Annie died Sam brought Ralph, Berdie and Lilly from West Texas to Van Zanzt County/Rusk County but I have not found a connection there or why he would have gone there??? You can reach me at or call me at 972-978-0692. I would love to talk with you about our family history.

Rhoevony Melton
My Dad, Raymond Rovonie Myers, was named after
Rhoevony Melton (I'm sure my Myers grandparents had
no idea how to spell Rhoevony, just went by sound
and said "Rovonie". This was due to a friendship
between Rhoevony Melton and Joe Myers. I contacted
Don Melton in Hawaii and inquired as to where the
name "Rhoevony" came from and he said he had often
wondered, but never asked or found out.

Just wondering if any of the Melton family would
have this information. When you enter "Rhoevony"
on Google, nothing comes up except Rhoevony Melton.

Charlies David Melton
Hello Nancy, When I first found Findagrave, I tried to enter and cross reference as many of Eliza's descendants as I could. I am still waiting for Aunt Beadie to be cross referenced and I have all their children. Then I started second generation starting with Charlie B. Melton and found some of his children. Some way I missed Charles David. Do you want him listed on their memorial with the rest of their children? I visited Big A many years ago looking for Eliza, and listed all the Meltons buried in the plot. Did I miss your father or is he resting in a different place? I finally found Morris and Chowning, not an easy chore, and Charles Leonard "Buddy" was hard to find because I only remember him called Buddy. Let me know about adding your father to Uncle Charlie and Aunt Nannie's memorials. By the way, Henry Clay and Annie Melton were my grandparents. Looking forward to hearing from you. Blesings, Sandra Bolton Vlasin

Eliza Kinard Melton
Hi Nancy, I am so glad to see you visiting Eliza's memorial. Finding Miss Eliza has not been an easy chore. Like all us Meltons, she probably saying, "Thanks, and it's about time>"
Blessings, Sandrav

Larry Chenault
RE: Chenault
Hi Nancy,

You have inquired about a J. H. Chenault and a 1923 death date; I posted a similar day/month for an Albert George Ch... and I just checked the Chenault Red Book published 2008 and it listed no daughter named Annie for Albert George... So the year issue could be coincidence (?).
