Thanks Darren, I do not know how much info Bob gave you on Monroe himself, but it seems he just listed him as our grandfather. Monroe Jackson Altom was born 23 may 1883 in Texas.(Milam Co.?) He died 29 Jan. 1927 in Dallas Co. Texas and is buried in Lee Cemetery in Seagoville,Texas. He married 3 march 1909, Ethel Ladonia Patterson b. 11 April,!890 Kaufman Co.,Texas d. 7 June 1974 Ardmore,Carter Co.,Oklahoma. Buried in Mt. Olive Cemetery in Healdton,Carter Co.,Oklahoma. Monroe and Ethel had issue: Sherman Joseph b.21 April 1910 Seagoville,Tx Oscar Aaronb. 10 Juky,1911 Dallas Co.,Tx Major Johnb.1 Jan 1916 Kaufman Co. Tx. Ethel Atlasb.16 Nov.1918 Seagoville,Tx * Edna Estelle b.27 July 1920 Huntington,Angelina Co. Tx Lonnie Elzab.2 Dec.1921 Bronson,Sabine Co.,Tx
Of these my Mother Edna "Estelle" is the last surviving.She turned 90 this past July and her health seems to be failing fast. She was only 6 when her dad passed and doesn't remember much about him.
I can give you death dates,marriages,and issue on these if you so choose. JUst let me know. Happy hunting.Would love to hear more on your direct line. Vicki
