My mother has never heard of anyone named Bully but said she remembers next to nothing about Walter. I know children think Beauregard is pronounced Bull-regard so one could surmise it was Walter Beauregard who is Uncle Bully.

I verified John married Estelle and they had one child Gloria who is now Gloria Strong. Gloria and my mother communicate reguarly with each other. John was born 8/16/1890 and died 8/3/1965.

Lillah was a nurse and never married. She was a very sweet and cultured lady and taught my mother about entertaining. Her old southern home seemed like a mansion to me as a child. It had black and white marble in the foyer and very tall ceilings and I never slept so well.

Mary Elizabeth married Charles Darby and they had two sons and three daughters.

Yes, Aunt Lillah's house and Mary Elizabeth went to Gantt and lived down the street from each other.

Walter is buried in Gantt City Cemetery aka Ables Cemetery. Zilphia is buried next to him and they share a headstone. Two different people have verified the spelling of her name from the headstone. The dates on the headstones list 1863-1931 on Walter and 1872-1930 on Zilphia. Zilphia was born in SC. There were no children from Walter's second marriage.

The census is going to give you the date range when they moved to Alabama. The 1910 census shows Walter living in Covington, Alabama.

Although I mentioned Tom married Clara from Aiken, she was actually born in Georgia.
