Dedicated to the Memory of Our Pioneer Fathers and Mothers


J. Taylor Allen was born October 29, 1848, instead of 1840.

On page 146, in the write-up of Honey Grove, line 21 should read: the city of Honey Grove shipped, instead of Bonham shipped.

In the write-up of C. C. Yoakum, the author desires to mention that he was often with him in his last days and conversed with him freely as to his future hope. Mr. Yoakum said he had been a very wicked man. The author told him our Savior came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance, and that there is more joy in Heaven over one sinner than the ninety and nine that went not astray. That all that was required was true repentance, and faith in the atoning blood of Jesus. He said he was sorry for his sins and would trust in Jesus. Thus Mr. Yoakum became reconciled. We shall meet him with the redeemed in the home beyond, where no sin, sickness or death ever enters.

J. Taylor Allen, Author and Compiler.
