Old Family Photo Collections Van Zandt County Genealogical Society
The photos on these pages are generously contributed by Milda Mason of Alto, New Mexico. Her ancestors were early settlers in Van Zandt County and these wonderful old photos are much appreciated. In addition, there is a very interesting story on this family and the Bottoms family on our "Old Tales, Stories Page" that you don't want to miss. If you would like to share your old family photos by placing them on this web site, please contact Sibyl Creasey for instructions.
This is William Alexander Melton and his wife Verna.
Bill was born 4 March, 1893 in Athens, Henderson County, Texas, the son of Jake and Lucinda Melton.
Bill's sister Danie, born 1878 married William Bomar Moore, Jr, and his sister Bell Ellen Melton married Bomar Moore's brother Nathan Frank Moore.
There are so many Bomar Moore's in this family. The Bomar Moore, Jr. that married Danie Melton is the son of Bomar Moore, born 1830 who was one of the participants in the gunfight at the circus.
