Notes from Karen Denney

Georgia Elizabeth Biffle was born supposedly in Missouri (although I have found no birth record there). On the 1900 Kaufman County, Texas, census, she is listed as being 32 years old (although on her tombstone it shows her born December 19, 1858).The census record shows her father born in Tennessee. From her death record, her father's name is Jim Biffle and mother's name Martha Watters. (That information was supplied by my Grandfather, Ira Burton Fletcher, Georgia Elizabeth Biffle was his mother)

So, all I have is that basically, Georgia Elizabeth Biffle married first Ira Burton Fletcher Sr. Her first child, Robert Jasper Fletcher, was born in 1876 in Missouri. Her second child, Frank M. Fletcher, was born in 1879 in Missouri. My grandfather was born in 1881 in Yellville Arkansas. His sister, Beatrice Fletcher, was born in 1885 in Arkansas. Ira Burton Fletcher Jr. married Tena Brock on 2-15-1915 in Bristol, Texas. Then apparently, Ira Burton Fletcher Sr. died. Georgia remarried "Mr. Brown." Then by 1900, she had been married three years to Samuel L. Love in Kaufman County, Texas. She is there on the census with her four children, and two step children. (which are biological children of Samuel Love). She died in 1951 and is buried in Lena, Oklahoma in a small cemetery there. I have access to a picture of her, that was taken around 1917. My sister looks a lot like her.

  • 1920 U.S. Census, Ellis County, Texas, T625-1800, p. 16B, E.D. 133; Georgia E. Love is found living with her son, Ira B. Fletcher, and his family. Next door is the family of Georgia L. Fletcher, widow. Could she have been the wife of Frank M. Fletcher, who died in 1916; the youngest child of Georgia L. Fletcher is Leon, age 3; she could have been pregnant when her husband died.
