The cousin Tucker was most likely a Royall.... to the best of my knowledge, there is still a Tucker Royall living in Palestine (or at least associated with Royall National Bank)he would be about 50 or so, his father was also a Tucker Royall, deceased.... I have no relation to this family, but have access to several books, the most relevant of which is a centennial history of Anderson County ...
According to the book,
1) John Royall "belonged to the 'F.F.Va.', he having been reared in Virginia. Married Miss Lucy A. Walton. Had 8 children including:
2) N. R. Royall born in Polk County, GA in 1846. Married Miss Annie Richardson, daughter of Wm. Richardson, a prominent Henderson county planter. Died May 9, 1905. Had 4 children including:
3) Tucker Royall born in Palestine, February 5, 1877. Married Fannie May Douglas, daughter of one of Anderson County's most prominent pioneer families on January 29, 1901. Her maternal grandfather, Col. H. C. Swanson was one of Palestines most successful business men back in 1867 while his wife, nee Mary Michaux was a scion of one of the county's most prominent and influential families. Had at least one child:
4) N. R. Royall, Jr. married to Frances N. Kimball and has three children: N.R. III, Tucker Kimball (the father of the Tucker Royall I believe may still be living in Palestine) and John Richard.
According to a book which has lineage on the Swanson family, Fannie May Douglas was born Sept. 2, 1880, and her children were Nathan Royster Royall Jr. b. Nov. 21, 1901, m. Frances Niles Kimball July 25, 1925 and Frances Royall, b. Jan. 25, 1904, d. Oct. 25, 1905.
According to The Mexia Weekly Herald newspaper Jan. 14, 1937 (it looks like) Tucker Royall (no. 3 above) died Jan. 13 with burial to be in Palestine on the 15th.
It is possible that Cousin Dolly could be Fannie May Douglas' mother Dora Macon Swanson who was also in Palestine at the time, but I can't tell and I don't see any reference to a Peyton or a Pearl.
