I believe I can help you with your inquiry.My Great-Great-Grandmother was Mattie Elizabeth Brister Alsup.She married a Bedichek.Brister was her maiden name.Her first marriage was to James Sanford Alsup Jr.
Their daughter, my Great Grandmother, was Ada Elizabeth Alsup.Ada Alsup married John Wesley Ward and both are buried in Hearne, Texas.
Do you have any information about this step-son who was supposed to have killed F.A. Bedichek?
We have not been able to get any further back on the Brister side, but we know she did marry a Bedichek.
