From Verna Reed [Verna@carlsbadnm.com]:

Will,

I found your web site, it is wonderful, but I am wondering if the Sarah who married John Russel Murray may be a Mahaffey-a daughter of William Mahaffey also of Simpson Co. William's daughter, Sarah, was born 16 jun 1817 in Washington Parish, LA:

1860 MS, Simpson Co. p. 143 #41/41

Russel Murray 45 M Farmer $1000/500 SC

Sarah 43 F LA

John T. 15 M MS

Martha S 13 F MS

Amos J 11 M MS

Robert W 10 M MS

Margaret 8 F MS

Sarah C(?) 6 F MS

Russel L 5 M MS

Isaac B. 3 M MS

Pheba J. 5 F MS

Sarah Mahaffey had brothers: Amos, Isaac, John, Robert, and William. Her mother was Mary, and she had sisters named Phoebe and Martha. The similarity sure is interesting. Do you have any information on this matter?

Thanks,

Verna

George was almost age 36 and Ruby was almost 17, when they married. There were eight children born to George and Ruby, over a time period of about 23 years. George was a Farmer, Painter, Brick Mason and a Carpenter. George farmed around the McGregor and Gatesville area until World War II. George helped build Camp Bowie (near Brownwood, Texas) and Camp Hood (now Ft. Hood, near Killeen and Gatesville). He worked at the Bluebonnet Ordance (sic) Plant, (this Plant made ammunition and bombs) at McGregor, Texas, until his age made him retire. George was reared in the (Primitive) or (Hard Shell) Baptist faith. He remained a Baptist all his life. He had a beautiful Tenor voice. George was a kind and caring man. George died 1 May 1946, Waco, Texas and is buried in the Crawford Cemetery next to three of his children, one grand son and a sister-in-law.

Notes for Della Drusilla STERLING:

05/20/98

From Vicki Carpenter (Charles Carpenter [c_v_carpenter@email.msn.com])

A Brief History of Della Drusilla STERLING.

Della was born July 7, 1910 between Rule & Spur, Texas. She was the sixth of nine children born to Mary Lavina MURRAY and John Alexander STERLING.

Before John and Mary Lavina were married he was a cowboy and cook for the 101 Ranch in Texas. He died in March 1923 at age 61 and is buried at Elkins, Washington County, Arkansas. His grave is unmarked at this time, but we are searching for the exact location and will mark it when found.

Howard MURRAY, Mary Lavina's oldest brother, purchased a farm at Black Oak, Arkansas, just outside of current day West Fork, Arkansas. Mary Lavina and John moved their nine children to this farm in search of better fortune. They then ought a house on Highway 16 in the Highland, Arkansas area. Shortly after Herbert was born, Mary Lavina became ill. John thought it best to take her home to Texas to be with her family. She died in route at WeWalka, Oklahoma, somewhere between Fayetteville, Arkansas and Seminole, Oklahoma. She is buried along the trail in an unmarked grave.

The children were divided among relatives and family friends. Herbert, being just a baby was placed with the WRIGHT family of Fayetteville. Della and Edna were sent to Las Vegas, Nevada to live with Nettie and Bessie their sisters. Nettie and Bessie had married brothers who worked for the Union Pacific Railroad. Della remembers Las Vegas before it was a tourist attraction. Fremont Street, current day downtown, was a dirt lane with the Railroad Station, a bakery and the Sunset Motel (1928). She and Edna loved the bakery. They attended school under K.O. Knudson. There is a newspaper photograph, I am looking for it, in which the first spike is being driven in the railroad to Boulder Dam in 1928, Edna is standing next to the man driving the spike.

When Della was 18, Bessie and Walter moved to Cedar City, Utah and Della returned to Arkansas. Howard MURRAY and his wife Vicie moved to Fayetteville, Arkansas and Drusilla MURRAY, widow of Archie came to live with them. Della lived with Howard and Vicie as long as she could stand the nagging of Vicie. When Della left Howard's home she lived with a family named Detheridge and cared for their family.

Della met a man named Guy Smith shortly after she went to work for the Detheridge family. Guy was a police officer in Springdale, Arkansas. They had twin boys, Bob and Bill. When Bob was three, he broke a bowl of pudding, and crawled under the kitchen table and cried for hours. Guy was a mean man and Della soon discovered that she would be better off raising her sons by herself. She left Guy and moved back to Fayetteville. Around 1939 she meet and fell in love with a man named John Alexander of Elkins. Shirley is thought to be a product of this relationship but the connection is unclear. Della married Clifford RIEKEN in 1942, a year after Shirley's birth, yet he claimed her as his. Della's children all took the RIEKEN name. Clifford brought with him a daughter, Richelene, whose mother had committed suicide. During World War II, they moved to San Bernardino, CA. Cliff went to Florida with the Army while Della went to work at Norton Air Base, when it first opened at the beginning of the war. She was a seamstress and small enough to fit into the tail of an airplane where she would sew the canvas linings.

Cliff, while training in Florida, was pushed from a watch tower and fell several 100 feet to the sand below. The sand prevented any serious body injury but destroyed his nerves. He was discharged from the service and sent home. He and Della returned to Arkansas. This time to a farm at Lowgap, Arkansas. They opened an upholstery shop and in the late 1950's redecorated the state capitol.

In 1966, after a series of several minor heart attacks, Clifford was killed by a massive coronary. Della continued to run her upholstery shop with their daughter Shirley until 1971 when she moved to California to be near her other family members. She lives there today with her son, Bill.

Notes for John Alfred LITTLETON:

07/31/1999

John had diphtheria twice before he was 4 years old and was one of the few who survived two attacks.

When he was approximately 9 years old his Cousin turned a saddle on a horse, throwing him to the ground. The stirrup, with leather toe fender and Fleur de Lis ornament hit his head. The Fleur de Lis punched out a piece of skull which later became infected. The chief medical officer of the hospital in San Antonia, Texas advised there was no cure - since spinal fluid was leaving and bacteria could enter - and death was certain. John's mother, Helen, being a lay minister, took him to the Four Square Gospel Church, Taylor Tabernacle at approximately 12 noon - explaining the problem to Brother Taylor, who requested she return with John at 7:00 PM for a special prayer session with the congregation, estimated at 700 people.
