Thanks for the update. I will contact Tyree later in the week. Dot has been very busy but when she gets a chance plans to pull out her bible to look for information. I will pursue checking for archived TX newspapers for Martha's death and possibly an obituary.
Regarding the Greaves. Yes, I have researched the Greaves and sorry to say there is no connection that I see. The Graves/Greaves arrived c1740 to just north of Georgetown,SC with a Colony from England and established a plantation on the Peedee River in Britton's Neck now Marion County, SC. They moved west to Haywood County, TN in 1830s. In c1887 Dr. Joseph Andrew Greaves and his family moved from TN to Texas. But as a side note--Joseph Henry & Jane Henegar York's son George W. York married Hannah Eagerton whose family was also from Marion Co., SC and moved directly from Marion to Smith Co., TX abt 1870. It was George W Yorks daughter Hallie Belle that married Joseph Greaves. So it is a very small world and always need to be sharp for those possible connections.
I need to make clarification it was not Martha's Orphaned children that G.W. Henegar became guardian of but rather an Elisha Stockstill's children. It may be as you suggested because he was sherriff or may be related to a closer relationship. I donot know if Martha moved from Warren Co., TN to Texas before her husband's death or as a widow. I would "guess" they moved before Garland Stockstill's death but his actual death date and location are unknown to me.
We live in Brentwood, TN but my husband's family was from TX and midwest.
