ARRICK, BRESHER. In looking for information concerning
my great-grandfather John ARRICK, we came across birth records of one of
his daughters, Mary Lee Arela ARRICK, b. Jan. 13 1893, Kaufman Co., City
of Crandall, Texas. Mother was Manerva Viola HARRISON. Both parents (John
and Manerva) were born in Tennessee (TN) in the 1860-1870 period. When
Mary went to get Social Security benefits, she didn't have her birth records.
So, she had two people sign affadavits swearing to her age. A woman, Sallie
BRESHERS, is shown as signatory on an affadavit, and she lists herself
as Mary's aunt (which side? ARRICK or HARRISON?), on May 31, 1958, and
living at 1513 E. 13th St., Lubbock, TX. The other affadavit signatory
is Fannie E. ALEWINE, on Jun. 2, 1958. No other information is know
about this person. Can someone help us find Sallie BRESHERS' maiden name,
and information about that family?

MARTIN, RICE, TALLANT posted by Willie D. Smith on Thursday, March
William T. TALLANT was born in White County,
Tennessee, in 1845 to James and Mary (Rice) TALLANT. He was a private in
the Federal Army and served in the 8th TN Mounted Infantry. He settled
first in Fannin County, TX by 1900 and was in Kaufman Co. TX, by 1910.
I need to know when and where he died, his wife's maiden name (given name
Sarah), and where his children went. He had a brother, Green H. TALLANT,
who also served in the 8th Tenn M.I. Green enlisted in February 1865 at
Granville, TN, and died of measles at home on May 6, 1865. Another brother,
James TALLANT, married Rebecca MARTIN in Putnam County, TN, on October
9, 1881. He disappears after that without a trace, and in all likelihood,
went to Texas with William. I need info on their descendants for inclusion
in my book, "The Descendants of William B. and Eleanor RICE of White County,
Tennessee". Thank You!
