  5. In the papers and sermons of Rhapherd Thomas BREEDLOVE is a handwritten note of his stating that it contained facts from the family Bible. Whose family Bible is not stated, and it is obvious from the dates of birth that it was not R. T. BREEDLOVEs generation who was speaking but the next youngest generation. Great-grandfather would be Simpson BREEDLOVE. The note reads: Great-grandfathers family settled in 1864 at Gap of the Mountains (probably Cranfalls Fall near Bosque River.) Grandmother BREEDLOVE born 1866, Granddaddy BREEDLOVE born 1864. Dingler is where Papas grandfather buried.

  10. I did not have time at the courthouse in Gatesville to check to see if from other marriage records I could determine the denomination of J. R. SEWARD. I asked the clerk if she knew and she said she did not but guessed he was Methodist.
  11. Chronicles of Smith County. Tabitha LEWELLEN married Abraham GORDON, and Lucinda LEWELLEN married William GORDON. Both Tabitha and Lucinda were sisters of Roxanna Pauline SPENCE BREEDLOVEs mother, Nancy LEWELLEN SPENCE WHITWORTH and the three are buried together in the Hannibal Cemetery in Erath County. The GORDON families and John LEWELLEN and wife Nancy COLEY (with their unmarried daughter Nancy LEWELLEN who became Roxanna Pauline SPENCEs mother) moved from Effingham County, Illinois, to Smith County, Texas, at the same time. Nancy COLEY LEWELLEN and John LEWELLEN are buried at the Verner Cemetery in Smith County which I believe is close to the original cite of Pleasant Retreat Church.
