I believe this is my family.

Eliza J.( Jane ) Koonce born 1845, died 1912 - buried, Chaffin Cemetery, McCulloch County texas.... married
Henry Monroe Martin( born 1841, died 1919) buried, Voss Cemetery, Coleman County Texas.My mother was told Henry Monroe was in the Civil War , was in France, met and married Eliza Jane Koonce. I don't know that for a fact.

Their children:

Willie- died at 16 years old
Maggie - married Silvester Collins, Ballinger, Tx.
Bertie - married Billy Smith, Ballinger, Tx
Georgie - married Paul Hallum, Ballinger, Tx.
John Henry - married Linnie May Horton

John Henry Martin ( My Grandfather)born 1880 in Tex. died 1968 .He married Linnie May Horton born 1902 died 1978.
My mother was told by her father John Henry, that his parents are buried in different locations because the Colorado river was on a rise and they couldn't cross to bury them together. My grandfather said he stayed at home and took care of his father until he died. John H. inherited the family farm in Coleman County on the Colorado river. I would like to have info on ...Koonce. Martin, Bullard,& Horton Families. My mother, Cora Lee (Martin) Beam is 82 years old and would love to hear more about relatives. She would like to hear from a cousin on her mothers side, Rex Allen whose mother was Ruby(Horton) Allen.
Hope all this helps some way in your search. Ivy Bailey
