I took less common name and found DC for Banks H., his father listed as Rufus, not Ruben.

Followed up on this to the Find a Grave site -- http://www.findagrave.com/ -- I just entered surname of Pruitt, state of Texas and county of McLennan. Found Banks and his wife, with lovely double headstone pictured.

Rufus Pruitt and wife, with pictures of their headstones. The submitter has added additional information, his parents and grandparents etc. I would get in touch with them, find out their sources etc.

Madison is also buried there, shown as Madison Banks Pruitt. I think he may be the son of Banks, not Rufus/Ruben. On the 1910 census Banks, his wife and a son are listed in McClennan Co, TX. Son is Banks Jr.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
