Bio Photo My family all settled in the Republic of Texas around 1835. Some of them coming with the Parkers to Anderson Co. Texas. Some going on into Limestone County and erecting Fort Parker.
Some settling in Houston County.
They supported the Republic when it was trying to become a state, separate from Mexico.

Note; I used the name Walling as I was growing up because my uncle Forest Walling raised me.
As it is not my legal name I still prefer to use it.

Dear Ancestor

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone,
The name and date are chiseled out,
on polished marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care,
It is not too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist.
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you, in and flesh blood and bone,
Our blood contracts and beats
a pulse entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor,
the place you filled one hundred years ago,
Spreads out among the ones you left,
who would have loved you so.
I wonder...if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew,
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

We live as long as we are remembered......Old Proverb


If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.


If anyone has any stories or information on any of my memorials, please let me know.
Every person that has lived has a story to tell.
I would like to know those stories. I think that every person should have their life remembered.
Anything at all is not to small, when it comes to a person's life.


If I have pictures, you may use them without asking. They are all our families.


A.R. Kendrick (A Parker relative, written on his stone).

I want no costly stone upon my grave to be
Ah, Savior knows his own and that's enough for me.
Just write it deep and plain that all who pass
may know that death to me is gain:
Through it to life I go.

You're so welcome. Were you able to find all the other folks in the photo?

You might want to add the web address for that photo as part of the citation.

According to Carolyn Wallin's book "Elisha Wallen, The Longhunter" page 48 Thomas was born abt 1669 and she references this to: New Jersey Archives, Volume 23.

May I ask how you determined the date 1654?

I noticed that you are maintaining a Lucy Stokes memorial. Are you related to them. I have some pictures that came from a estate sale and I am trying to link everyone together and wonder if you can help

Edith Gertrude Pridgen Pridgen #50662990
I am not related to these folks, but they are (very) distantly related to one of my family lines; I ran across these listings as part of my research.

I don't know if you put it on Edith's page about her and her husband not being related, or if was the original creator; regardless, I thought you'd like to know what I pieced together.

They are indeed related, and closer than anyone had previously likely realized. Edith's mother was Mollie Pridgen, a daughter of Redding Scott Pridgen; her father was George Pridgen, a son of Bolivar Pridgen. Redding was one of Bolivar's older brothers, making Mollie and George first cousins.

Edith's husband, Wright Taylor Pridgen, was a son of Benjamin Pridgen - a younger brother of both Redding and Bolivar. This makes Edith and Wright, if I've done my "math" correctly, first cousins twice removed, since they have a grandfather in common. You don't necessarily have to include this on Edith's page, but you may want to get rid of the bit about them not being related or distant kin. I'd say they are much closer than distant.

Might be an interesting tidbit for other descended relatives seeking info (or not); I'll leave it up to you. Just thought you ought to know.
