This tidbit regarding Florence May (Brown) Galt was found by googling her husband Thomas Resin Galt's name. For this I used just his initials, so the google search was for T.R. Galt. The notice is, in fact, about her and not him. Women for a large portion of the twentieth century were mostly referred to by their husbands' names.

Apparently, she had taken ill while on a visit to New Mexico, possibly to visit one of her children - daughter Beulah Frances (Galt) Graham was living in New Mexico at the time. She had become so ill that Thomas, who had not accompanied her, went to New Mexico to bring her home to Hale Center, Texas. She died less than five months later and is buried in the Hale Center Cemetery.


  1. You had a nice interview on "May I Introduce to You," at GeneaBloggers today and I was glad to learn about you and your blog. You have done a beautiful job!

    1. Thank you. I'm glad you stopped by. I have a Taggart line in Mecklenburg County, NC. Any chance you are working on one there, too?
