My Relationship : 4th Great Grandfather
From the memoirs of Hattie Ellen Taylor Redus:
"Lillian Oleta was born at the Bass Place on July 26, 1899. We lived here
eight years and I loved it."
"In a field east of our house was a little cemetery with eight graves marked
only by stones. Charlie's Grandfather Ferguson, his daughter and her child
were buried here. His Grandmother Ferguson was buried at Mt. Zion, across
Yellow Creek. The waters were up when she died and she could not be buried by
her husband. Charlie and I cleaned off weeds and briars and cared for the
graves while we were there. I imagine it is being cultivated now. People were
too poor to buy monuments during and after the Civil War."
- Last child born 1848 and doesn't appear on the 1850 Census. Probably died
between 1848 and 1850.
