2 Newspaper articles
In memory: I have 2 newspaper articles that you might be interested in. Both of them were written during the time the Flying L was originally opened. Both of the articles state that the Flying L were built "by a disciple of Frank Lloyd Wright" and "engaged architects - among them one was associated with Frank Lloyd Wright".

I can send these 2 newspaper articles to your email account if you like.

My Mother remembers the buildings well (she is 90) and remembers that they were Frank Lloyd Wright look-a-likes.

My parents, siblings, and I used to spend the summers at the Flying L in the cottages (if they were not occupied). My oldest sister and brother, Jeanne and Jimmy, lived at the Flying L in their teen years. Unfortunately, they have both passed away. Jeanne and Jimmy lived in the main house with my grandparents. Such wonderful memories.

I also have a memorial for Col. Jack Lapham. You can see it on FindAGrave on memorial # 134784781.

RE: Bill Walker
Our family was deeply saddened by Denise' murder in 1984. My Mom and her cousin M. H. were devastated. She must have been horrified in her last hours. We pray that the guy will never get out. If I remember correctly, the guy was an escapee from San Antonio.

Denise went to school with my oldest half-sister and half-brother in Bandera. My Mom's parents ran the Flying L Dude Ranch for Col. Lapham. If my memory serves me right, the Flying L and the Walker property are next to each other. If you have lived in Bandera for some time, maybe you remember my grandparents? They were Mark Chism and Vera Bridges-Chism. My grandmother was a cousin of Jacob Elzie "Buster" Dean of Tarpley (he passed away a couple of years ago).

Most of my Mom's family are from the Bandera, Tarpley, Utopia, and Vanderpool area.

Thank you once again for the transfer.

William Irwin "Bill" Walker
Thank you for the transfer of the memorial for William Irwin "Bill" Walker. Bill was my grandmother's cousin.

I had surgery 3 weeks ago, and have not been feeling up to doing my genealogy. Bill's death came as a surprise to our family.

Thank you,

Pat Joubert

RE: J. M. Wilks
I got my information from Marshall Ford Basin Cemetery Removals, not published. Anyway the actual page they used to remove the bodies, Lists J.M. Wilks at Pace Bend Cem, now Singleton Family Cem. It shows several relatives (I think were grandchildren) under his name. If you will send me your snail mail address, I'll send you a copy of the page.

RE: Mason County memorials
No, we live in Tarrant County. We just travel the back roads and look for smaller, older cemeteries. Thanks for asking. If you don't find someone to transfer them to, I will be happy to maintain them. I truly feel link I am recording history, so it is very personal for me. Thanks for reaching out, Sherry
