. . . . . . . . . .
The following events were recorded in the 1860-1866 Journal kept by Sam's brother-in-law / step-brother, James Madison Hall.
. . .
"Thursday, July 11th, 1861. Be it remembered & known that Samuel H. Sharp & Miss Mary Alexandrien Lamier, were united together in the bonds of wedlock, & I rather expect at night there was some very sharp shooting took place, this however is only a surmise. Capt. Wrigley & Ed. Jones came in from their camp to attend said wedding, where all passed off pleasantly & agreeably to all in attendance. Weather clear & warm" . . .
. . .
"Monday, January 18th, 1864. To day the boys are at work on the stables. Sam [Samuel Houston Sharp] rode my horse Ratler to Crockett and was conscripted and put into the army of the Confederacy Sans Serimonia. I let Sam have 100$ before he left for Crockett. Mother [Mahala Sharp Hall nee Roberts] and the children [Roberta and Toby] left for home. . . . Weather changeable and cold, with a hard freeze at night.
. . . . . . . . . .
According to Ida Mae (one of Sam & Nellie's daughters) . . . "My father never married again again after my mother's death, and died when I was above fourteen years old. He is buried next to and on the right side of my mother, but there is no marker at his grave." [as of 1962]

Esther Biggers, a Hall family historian, said that she visited this cemetery with her father several years before his death in 1983 . . . and that at that time there were markers here for various members of the Hall family who originally owned the land where this cemetery is located . . . she later learned that those markers had disappeared . . . but was never able to determine what had happened to them.
