Charles and other interested,
I enjoy your info like many others but this is the first time I have found
one of our families.
You mentioned a STANDIFER today. My husband's mother was born in Dublin.
Her father was NELSON PEVEHOUSE GREEN, son of Benjamin GREEN and Sarah
PEVEHOUSE. They lived near Alexander and are buried in Heavenly Branch
Nelson married TENNESSEE PRUDENCE WELLS. She was the daughter of John
WELLS and IDA ESTELLE ROGERS, early settlers from Falls Co. After John died
Estelle married SAMUEL R Standifer, 9 Dec 1897. He was a minister and
performed some of the marriages in Erath Co around this time. In 1910 they
were in Howe, Grayson Co, TX.
Estelle died in 1918 and is buried in Falls Co with her parents and her
first husband, John Wells. We don't know what happened to Samuel but he was
alive at that time, as he signed the death certificate. If Samuel is a
member of your family I would like information on him.
As a side note, Ben Green and Sarah are the parents of Amanda Green who
married Hugh Garland PITTMAN. Their daughter was BLANCHE PITTMAN,
superintendent of schools for Erath County.
Thanks for all the info you give this list.
