Vernie and Alvro settled in Nixon where he was employed at the Roos-Nash Mercantile. In 1913 they bought 4 lots in Block 56 of Nixon and built a house where their daughter Audrey was born Jan. 9, 1915. That same year Alvro was killed in a tragic accident. Alvro attempted to pull a shotgun (being carried in the buggy for protection against the raiding Mexicans and Indians) from the buggy, but the trigger caught on the buggy whip, and the shotgun discharged in his chest.

208 Attending at birth Grandma Julia Ann Walker, Dr Lee Elder from Nixon Hospital Lived Nixon 1915-1924, Yoakum 1924, Junction 1924-1926, San Antonio 825 Buford St 825 Dawson, Palmetto St, Dawson St Two years Junior college at a branch of UT in SA, then to Loma Alto to teach in September 1934. Audrey and her mother moved to Loma Alto in McMullen Co, 25 miles from Tilden, which was the county seat and the nearest real town. One court house with a telephone and one grocery store PO combined. There was a town (so called) Freer which was for people who worked on gas and oil wells. It was 15 miles from Loma Alto. From Pleasanton Texas to Loma Alto there were only dirt roads - 75 miles. Arthur helped settle them in. Also Lora Weltz and Herman, brother to Bill Weltz. They built an alcove by the belfry upstairs in the schoolhouse. With placement of rugs 9x12 they divided what had once been meant for an auditorium into living & bed room. Audrey's mother curtained all of the many windows. The dining area was the tiny stage. One of the dressing rooms was a pantry and the other was the kitchen. Audrey's mother built shelves and a closet for clothes in the alcove bedroom. Arthur, the Weltz's (with JOan, 6), Grace and Paul Justice and Paul's sister Frances, Lora and Herman Weltz visited several weekends. One weekend on Saturday he walked 5 miles back to Devil's Hole. One of the neighbors (nearest one 1 1/2 miles away) guided us back there. The whole crowd was there for the weekend. Don't ask where we slept. I remember a lot of matresses on the floor. Thank goodness mother came well equipped and coming from a very large family knew how to cope gracefully. Another weekend it rained while the Weltzs were there. Well I have mentioned the dirt roads. The Caleche dirt became chewing gum when wet besides. Ten miles from Loma Alto on the way to Tilden was the Guadelupe River, a very small size in that area. They took one car, Herman and Lora's Ford V*, and pushed the car through the mud most of the way to Tilden. Bill & Herman rode on the trunk and the three girls, Lora, Madelline and Joan rode inside with Arthur, who drove. They left Arthur's Pontiac at Loma Alto. Bill & Arthur only had weekend passes & had to report back to Randolph Field Sunday night. They made it through, driving Herman's car from Tilden to Randolph after dropping Lora and Herman off at Tilden. Lora was the deputy county clerk of McMullen Co. (That meant she did all the work.) A Franklin bigwig was county clerk. Herman was a rural (Notes lost from this point). Audrey lived there and taught school for one year. Married 1935, Lived Randolph Field1935-1940. Arthur ordered to Hawaii but asked for 30 days leave. Then reassigned to Panama, so went to Indiana at Mary's until July 1940, then back to San Antonio. September went to Panama. Stayed until Jan 1942, back to San Antonio. Bill Born in June, Arthur home on leave. Bought house on Harriman Place since no quarters available on Kelly Field.

209 Abijah Thayer Beal

Abijah was born on February 18, 1869 in Webster, Maine. He was the son of Olive Ann (Drinkwater) and Jarvis Thayer Beal.

Abijah left Webster, Maine probably when his father, Jarvis Thayer Beal moved to Newton, Massachusetts in late 1889. Abijah worked with his father as a builder and a carpenter. See chapter on Jarvis Thayer Beal for picture of their business card. He was noted for his fine workmanship with his carpentry skills.

Abijah married Ellen Eliza Bird on June 28, 1892 in Newton {Newton Upper Falls**}, Massachusetts. Ellen was the daughter of Emma (Bird) and Francis William Bird of Massachusetts. They were cousins. Ellen was born on May 19, 1864 in East Boston. Ellen's family line comes into contact with the Mayflower line. William Brewster was an original Pilgram that landed at Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1620. See page ?? for a direct descendant list from William Brewster to Ellen Eliza Bird. She was a music teacher. When Ellen was about twenty five years old she wrote the song, " Normandy March". This song won her a bronze medal at the World's Columbian Exposition in 1892-1893. The song was published and copyrighted in 1890 by Miles & Thompson of Boston. She dedicated the song to one of her teachers, Thomas Reeves from the the Perkins Institute for the blind in Boston (which is present day Watertown). Ellen was only partilly blind though. Ellen original title thought before the Normandy March was an Indian name for the Charles River (Newton & Boston area) of "Qunni-bee-quinn". The name is spelled as it sounds, but may be incorrectly spelled here.

They had the following children:
All born in Newton, Massachusetts.

i Jarvis Thayer, 2nd, b April 3, 1893 {Newton Centre}

v William Bird, b March 10, 1898 {Newton Highlands}
vi Roger Drinkwater, October 20, 1901 {Newtonville}
vii Olive Emma, b April 27, 1903 {Newtonville}

Ellen died at home on May 8, 1922 at 1073 Washington Street in Newton {Newtonville}. Her cause of death was myocarditis with acute dilatation of the heart and chronic interstitial nephritis.

Abijah married Georgia E. Cook on September 12, 1923. Georgia was born on August 17, 1871. They had no children.

Abijah died at home on January 23, 1952 at 8 Washington Terrace, Newton. Cause of death was coronary thrombosis, general arteriosclerosis, carcinoma of the prostate with metastasis and malnutrition. Georgia died on August 29, 1957.

She had a glass eye put in it's place. Doris was an American Red Cross volunteer during World War II at the Newton Wellesley Hospital in Newton.
