Amanda "Mandy" Caroline Slider married 1st. George M. Eastep/Estep in Henderson Co., TX. July 14, 1878. They had the following children:
Oscar Abraham Eastep B: April 30, 1879
Anna Lee Eastep B: Jan 16, 1881
Georgia Nancy Eastep B: Nov 12, 1884
Infant Eastep B & D: unknown
George M. Eastep died around 1884-1886. He is suppose to be buried in Henderson Co., TX. Would like to have where is is buried and when.

Amanda parents were William Richard Slider and Nancy Ann Jones. I find this family in the 1850 Census of Upshur Co., TX. He was a wagon maker. Amanda was born in 1860 in Upshur Co., TX, so sometime after that they moved to Henderson Co., TX. William Richard was suppose to have been shot and killed in his front door about 1870 in Henderson Co., TX.

Amanda mother Nancy Ann JONES Slider then married a Mr. Martin. He may have also been killed in Henderson Co., TX

After the death of Amanda husband George M. Eastep she moves to Comanche Co., TX. Amanda Eastep married Hezekaih Bellomy, 4 June 1890 in Comanche Co., TX.

Amanda and Hezekiah Bellomy lived in the Rock Bluff Community, Comanche Co., TX. They joined the Rock Bluff Baptist Church 1914 by letter. In the Rock Bluff Cemetery we have a grave of M. E. Bellomy no date and no marker. Who is this? Is it Hezekiah first wife, Melissa?

My brother Jerry Grisham and I are trying very hard to get history on the Rock Bluff Community, Cemetery and Church. Would you please help if you have information on any of the above people.

We will be having our third(3rd) cemetery working Sat. May 3, 2003. If you can come please bring sandwich making, drinks, & tools and come work, eat and visit with us. You can contact us for directions to the Cemetery. Thank you.
