In a previous reply to Mr. Wyly I told a little of the story of John St.
Helen as it relates to his stay at Iredell. I just ran across my notes
which adds a few details:
John Wilkes Booth, alias John St. Helen, was the teacher at Hester school
house and he was living east of Iredell on the south side of the Bosque. He
boarded with a man named Green Williams. While living there he confessed,
not that he was Booth, but that he was a son of Marshal Ney, who, according
to some authorities, escaped after Waterloo. He told some of his friends
that that he called himself St. Helen after the island of St. Helen and
that he did this as a tribute to Napoleon. He reportedly said this was the
least that a son of Marshal Ney could do to honor his old commander. This
was his earliest known appearance in Texas. He was said to have always kept
his head covered. He came to the Iredell from Louisiana, and prior to that
he had been living in California. From Iredell he moved to Glen Rose where
he worked at a saloon owned by Mr. Gordon. He next moved to Granbury,
where, when he thought he was dying, he told his attorney that he was
actually Booth. When he recovered, he left the area.
I have seen a Palm Rose mentioned in some book, I looked in Raymond
Hancocks, Purves book and didn't find it , as it isn't indexed, I might have
but I was thinking it was North East of Purves between - Alexander and
Peggy in Purves

re- read your message. Wonder if they sang on KFPL (Kind Friends please
with main studio in Dublin and a branch in Arch Evans tire store lobby in
Stephenville, behind the old First Methodist Church. Also, the King
Abstract and kin in Stepohenville were the family of Governor Augustus
King of Missouri and also John Sevier descendants, as I am 8 generations
back. They owned Erath County land.
The Great King Ranch of Texas was not in Erath County but in in South
Texas towards Corpus Christi and was run by a merchant seaman or captain
named King with an unknown past.. I have reason to believe he was kin to
the Kings of Stephenville but was alienated from them for some reason
History only knows. I got this idea from a lady descended from the
Stephenville and Missouri King families and no longer have her name and
address. I saw her only once when she was a desk clerk and my wife and
nephew and his family were on vacation. . Some believe he and later,
George Parr of Duvall were financed by international shipping interests
, rival of the Kennedy interests, and they also backed Lyndon
Johnson.when he won an election by a landslide of 23 viotes from a small
box overlooked in the first count. in Duval County.
On Friday or Saturday nights rural schools used to sing on KFPL. We from
Johnsville sang a song from the 1936 Texas School Books about the Yellow
Rose of Texas, written by Black cowboys about the Mulato former Alabama
slave girl who became a spy for Sam Houston in Santa Anna's Camp. The
present Stephenville Radio station is KSTV on the same band as Nashville,
Tenn. where we used to hear the Grand Old Opry from Nashville.
Carl W. Turnbow was sheriff and Blackie Martin was his deputy in
Stephenville and later Mr. Martin became sheriff and his deputy was "
Sonny boy" Roberts- nickname- can't remember his real name. Were these
Martins descendants of Gen. Joseph Martin of Georgia, 1800 or his dad
Joseph Martin" Gen. Martin was also son in law of Jesse Walton and Nancy
Ward- 2 lines- and sold the Traveller's Inn of Jesse Walton to James
Rutherford Wyly and Sarah Hawkins Clark Wyly (Gov. Sevier's
granddaughter) at Toccoa, Ga. State Militia Gen. Wyly- of 1790-1850's was
Great Grandad's grandad.
Were these Martins and Wards and Waltons represented in the 1865- 36
wagon train sponsored by Wylys of Habersham County , Ga. and Atlanta
Cotton Yard, part of that wagon train which arrived in Stephenville in
1868? Many of their marriages, performed by Dr. & Rev. Hatchett of
Chipley ( Pine Mountain) Ga. and in Texas before 1845 are in the Bosque
County records in Meridian- their land was first recorded in Waco then
Meridian as Erath County grew.
Take care, Charles Wyly
One of the early day priorities in the new counties was the establishment
of roads, and assigning people along the route to maintain the road. Here's
Aug 10 The Bosque County Court ordered a change in the road leading
from Meridian to Stephenville. It was directed that the road was commence
at the first branch above Captain Nelson's residence leading thence in a
nearly direct course to the lower end of the Goff Valley and that Captain
A. Nelson be appointed overseer of said road, his duties to commence at the
terminus of Hanna's and terminate at the crossing of the Bosque below the
residence of McCarty and that A. Mahan, Ben Lloyd, Knight, and Nelson's
hands, J.P. Davidson, and J.F. Cross to work with Nelson. Robert Nelson was
appointed overseer of the remaining portion of the road and James McCarty,
J.C. Roberts, Marshall Riley, H.B. House, Robertson, R.A. Hester, H.
Medford, James Kimbrough, James S. Wiley, Frank Cowden, Wm. Cowden, Walker,
G.W. Martin, G. Morris, H. Brewer to work with said Robert Martin.
The Captain A. Nelson was Allison Nelson, former mayor of Atlanta, GA who
had moved to Bosque County in 1855 and settled along the north side of the
Bosque north of Meridian some 4-5 miles. He was active in the frontier
defense, and later helped form the 10th Texas Infantry Regiment, and was a
General in the Confederate Army. The other names mentioned above may be in
either Bosque or present Erath County. I don't know where Goff Valley is, I
don't think it is in Bosque County. R. A. Hester then lived on the north
side of the Bosque about 3-4 miles west of Nelson. Probably some of the
other names will be familiar. While I don't have a detailed map showing
early roads of this area, I suspect the road to Stephenville from Meridian
ran up the Bosque on either the north or south side, and may have then
headed north up Duffau Creek toward present day Duffau and on to
Stephenville. Maybe someone does have such a map. I don't know where the
crossing below the residence of McCarty would be. The Hanna above is
probably John Hanna, who was elected Sheriff of Bosque Co. later that year,
and lived on the south side of the Bosque between Meridian and present day
Hi List, Does anyone remember a Palmrose school? I think that it was
one of those one room schools that kids had to walk miles to in rain,snow or
whatever. My mother,who was Joycelene LOWERY back then,attended that
school. She is 74 now.
My mother,along with her sisters,Bea LOWERY & Jessie LOWERY, use to sing on
a local radio station. That was before T.V. came into our homes. They lived
on route 7 in Dublin. Charles Wyly on the list probably knows. He's great,
and seems to be a walking history book of Erath Co. My grandfather,Frank
Harrison LOWERY, use to play the fiddle for many square dances I'm told. He
also raised watermellons and peanuts and other things to sell as Charles
Wyly mentioned. Mom said that they lived next to the big KING ranch. They
all had to pick cotton there to help out with the family budget. Mom said
that the dust storms were terrible. They all moved to El Monte,Calif.
around 1941. Grandpa & Grandma came back to visit relatives often. Some of
the relations are;

About this time, my ggf James McCarty would have been one of the
Erath commissioners.....maybe a couple of years later than 1856. He was
killed in 1869 and my grandfather Joseph lived with his widowed mother Nancy
and my Dad was born in 1876 in the home that had been James (1802-1869). This
home was north of the present main gate of the cemetery according to my Dad.
I don't know about the old cursive writing
but Marshall Wylie (xxRiley), A.C. Roberts (xx J.C.), and H.B. Hollis
(xxHouse) would have all been son-in-laws of James McCarty. My grandfather
would have been only 10 in 1856 and the oldest of his three
brothers would have been about 20......younger than the brother-in-laws and
would not have been land holders. I would "guess" that the crossing
of Duffau may be near the current low bridge just west of the present
cemetery. The Bosque church of the Primitive Baptists was located on
the east side of the Duffau Creek ca. 1859 and I would think it would have
been accessed from a travelled road.

Don't remember if we have exchanged info or not....your grandfather
Frank had a sister Minnie who was the first wife of Walter Turnbow,
(1877-1947)---son of Joseph Chesley Turnbow and Sarah Catherine "Kitty"
Hogan. Minnie & Walter had one son, Walter Everett Turnbow (1905-1969)
who married Pauline Glover (1907-1979). Pauline's sister, Emma Martha
Glover (1905-1988) married Gaylord Young Box (1903-1998). Everett &
Pauline are buried at Andrews whereas Gaylord & Emma are buried at
Early (Brown County).
Gaylord Box's sister, Arie Bell Box (1886-1918) was the wife of Frank----
......your mother evidently was of his second marriage. (?)
In the 1996 "Turnbow Cemetery" book of my friend Alice Moore, she
gives Audrey Allen Turnbow as the son of Walter (1877-1947) but that is
an error as Audrey was one of two sons of Everett and Pauline (Russell
was the other.)
In the 1950s, RR # 7 out of Dublin encompassed families that lived
south of Alexander and Clairette. My uncles, the Carrs, lived directly
across from what is today the Jack Farrar Ranch home and that is how they got
their mail. At that time, Clairette had a post office and we got
our mail there. Rural homes east of Clairette were on a Hico rural route
and some a few miles north were on a Stephenville rural route.
I am not familiar with a "Palm Rose" school but it likely would have been
somewhere between Carlton and Alexander, I would think. I rode a school bus
to Hico from Clairette (Clairette school shut down in 1949)-----
and every day a bus from Dublin also passed my house. I think each year
my Daddy would be solicited by Dublin, Stephenville and Hico as each of
the schools wanted the state dollars for each student. All the kids that I
knew went to Hico but some over towards Alexander caught the Dublin bus

The Index to Republic Claims on Microfilm
About the Republic Claims Project
The Republic Claims series includes claims for payment, reimbursement, or
restitution submitted by citizens to the Republic of Texas government from
1835 through 1846. It also includes files relating to Republic pensions and
claims against the Republic submitted as public debt claims after 1846. The
records include supporting documents such as vouchers, financial accounts,
military records, receipts, notes, or letters.
These historic records from the Republic Era have been microfilmed to
preserve the highest image quality, and the entire series has been
meticulously indexed by staff in the Archives and Information Services
The Republic Claims series consists of four groups of payments made for
services rendered during the period 1835-1846. These groups are the Audited
Claims, Republic Pensions, Public Debt Claims, and Unpaid Claims.
Because the actual Republic Claims are extremely fragile, access to the
records is restricted to high-quality microfilmed copies of the files. This
Online Index provides an alphabetical list of indexed names with
corresponding microfilm Reel and Frame numbers where the indexed name
appears in one or more Claims files. The microfilm reels are available
through Interlibrary Loan and, to view in person, at the Genealogy
Collection of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission.
Microfilming and indexing for the Republic Claims project were made possible
by two generous grants from the Summerlee Foundation.
Barbara Lowery was about 5 years younger than I. I am 70. as a teenager
she and her parents used to attend Pony Creek Baptist Church, Erath
County . She and I were in the same Sunday school class and night bible
study class. She was an athlete at Stephenville High school and I think
she was on the team with the Laney girls, a Hale, and a girl from
Huckaby, Teexas the year that girl's basketball was out of favor with
city raised girls and the school board. These girls who attended Three
Way, Huckaby, and Bluff Dale elementaries in their home district won
State in Girl's basketball for Stephenville High School. - they had
played with or against each other since the 4 th Grade. Texas Dog or Bill
McCarty should be able to help you here. They lived between Duffau and
Johnsville (now Three Way) and I think Mr. ( (Milton?) Lowery had a small
dairy on the old home place of Herman Talley. , where the black land was
on one side of the fence and sand on the other side. Wonderful fruit,
melon, and peanut country.
Athens is on Hwy 36 between Waco and Tyler- it is a county seat and the
Blackeyed Pea capitol of the south, with annual blackeyed pea festivals.
The Blackeyed Pea restaurants are becoming popular here- Fort Worth area
is their home office. My son , a contractor has built 2 or 3 and we had
Thanksgiving dinner in one. Yes, to all north of the Mason Dixon Line we
do eat all kinds of cow peas in Texas. A man from Athens is the disputed
inventor of the hamburger from his experience in concession stands in the
Chicago World's Fair. Leaving East there are antebellum southern
mansions across from Wallmart.
Heard a man say the other day that he plans to be buried between Wallmart
and McDonald's so his wife will come by every week.

Hi Alice and list, My 2nd great grandparent's are Morgan LOWERY,
who married Tensie FOSTER. However, Alice from the list has brought up a
question. Could Tensie's name really be Tennessee ? I now live in Heard
Co.,GA. but I did live in Cobb Co.,GA. five years ago. I found Morgan
LOWERY and wife on the 1850 census for Cobb Co.,Georgia. I couldn't make
out the writting for Tensie. It could have been Tennessee spelled wrong.
Tensie was the closest thing that made sense to me at the time. I photo
copied it but I'll have to look at it again. I had a back surgery and a hip
replacement last May and I still have a hard time getting around sometime.
My grandfather,Frank Harrison LOWERY, named one of his daughters Tencey so I
guess that Tensie made sense. Actually it looked like Retensie on the actual
census to me. It is still a mystery to me as to what happened to Morgan
LOWERY and his wife. I couldn't find them in any of the counties in Georgia
after 1850. Where did they go? Where did they die? All I know is that their
son, John Morgan Wesley LOWERY,my great grandfather,lived in Wilson,Comanche
Co.,TX. in 1880 because he is on the census then. His son,Frank Harrison
LOWERY,my grandfather, was born in Nov.1881 there. They then moved to
Erath Co.,TX. I wasn't aware of Athens Texas. Maybe I need to check that
out. First I'd better get a map out and find out where it's at. Thanks
Alice, this may be a new lead. I wrote to Faye McDonald as you suggested
and I'm waiting for a reply. Betty Stinecipher
do you have any other information on the Olds? My ex-husband's grandmother

he died because he (according to her) signed away his family rights.
According to her her mother in law was an Olds. I cannot find anything on my

John Wesley Lowery, born near Athens, Texas, was the son of Morgan
Lowery and his wife, Tensie (Foster) from Georgia. (Erath County Death
Records, Book II, Informant J.W. Lowery). J.M.W. Lowery married M. Peck,
12 October 1876, Official T.N. Buchanan (Erath County Marriage Book B,

household of Thomas B. Hester.

There were also Masseys in Walnut Springs. Mitchell Massey was a genius
who had been a merchant marine sea Captain in World War 2 and sailed the
Atlantic and Mediteranean, sometimes without military escort. He finally
left Walnut Springs and retired again in Glen Rose. His father lost a
fortune when the Walnut Springs Bank was robbed 2 or 3 times and the lock
was not broken. Mitchell's dad sold a large farm to make up losses to
depositors. I know just enough about this one to know thwre could have
been quite a book written about it and the days when Walnut Springs was
headquarters of the Texas Central Railroad. They had a Katy lake, a
college, a Railroad hospital, atuldt hardball teams, and a round house
and 4 bands-one played each sunday while Francis Ernest Prideaux Brune of
England did exhibition diving and swimming by the RR park.
His grave has a solid granite full length cap- the mistery was who paid

Any help would be appreciated.
No bells charles, but thanks for the info. I will talk to some cousins and
see if it helps with their searches. Most of my familys that I know of--were
just "dirt farmers" in Erath co. I think the KITE family might have owned a
farm but the others did not. The Kunkel familys were a little better off and
the Masseys settled in Gray co around McLEan, tx. Most of the others were in
Bandera, Bowie and Milam co's.from 1860 to 1900 and then just spread out
across the state after that. The Nelms family was in the "Panhandle" tex.
area. The Battens moved to Calif. The Mc Cutcheons went all over and some of
the others I am still tracking. I will send your kind reply around to see if
it joggs anyones' notes.
thanks, judy hugg grimes.
Oh, the grimes were texas and kansas and then to Kingfisher okla and the
HUGG family was mostly from Erath to strawberry, ark. area, with a great
grand uncle in Beaumont a High School art teacher. The Lanes were in Arkansas
from Tx and the Rouninos--we have never found-anywhere as they married into
the Hugg family in Strawberry-but someone said that they thought there was a
large Polish or Italian group living in Bandera co. from the middle 1800's.!.
thanks again, JUDY
Post the lists please and anything else you can find with Erath names on it.
please. I am looking for KITE, COLLINS,CAVE,POUNDS,DODD and many related
lines. All older names really helps. LOWERY,BRYANT,GRABENER,MASSY,

Margaret, I can't identify Cynthia's parents. A Fox descendant posted a query on the
Bosque Co. Genweb page a couple of years ago, and said the Fox parents are buried in
Riverside Cemetery at Iredell, and that they had daughters who married Faggards
there. I suspect this might be Cynthia's parents. Since the Jones/Walker and Gordon
families came to Bosque Co. from Cherokee County, who knows?
