Thanks for your response. I am fairly new to genealogy research and don't have much time to pursue it so far.
I spent some time visiting my mother in Jones County Tx and made pictures of the gravestones in Bethel Cemetery and Mt Hope Cemetery. I also brought home copies of pages from old bibles. I would be happy to share any info once I get a chance to go through it.

The Walter Washington Harrell farm was passed on to his son Thomas Claude Harrell, and now my mother owns it.

A movie was made on the farm in 1995 called Stars Fell on Henrietta, produced by Clint Eastwood, directed by James Keach, starring Robert Duvall, Aidan Quinn, and others.
I think a copy of it can be found on
