The parents of Seralda Beard.

Seralda Beard was born in Bedford County, Tennessee in about 1824. When she was about twelve years old she moved to Panola County, Mississippi with her large family. In 1843, she married Joseph M. Houston. He was born in Tennessee about 1818. It is not known if the Beard and Houston families knew each other in Tennessee, and the Houston family does not seem completely certain of his lineage. There were definitely several Houston families living in the Bedford County and Marshall County areas when our Beard ancestors were in the same places. Seralda and Joseph Houston, married for seven years, were in Panola County on the 1850 census. They lived among many relatives and friends. Before 1860, they would have ten children, but a great tragedy happened in November 1859, when Joseph died of pneumonia. Seralda Beard Houston was left a widow at the age of 36 with ten children and a Civil War looming. The children ranged in age from a baby of two months to a thirteen year old son. Seralda had to hold her family together during some unbelievably terrible times. Apparently she managed, for in the 1870 census she appeared as a mother of six children still at home. By 1880 Seralda was still the head of her household, but the family was enumerated in Tate County, Mississippi, which is next to Panola County. Her daughter Louisa with a young husband and baby lived with her. Next door was another married daughter, Barbara. Seralda's sons James and John also lived close by. Seralda died before the 1900 census was taken, and we have not found her burial place. Many of the descendants of Seralda and Joseph Houston made homes in Tate and Panola Counties in Mississippi, and some are still in the area today, over a hundred and fifty years after this couple married. The descendants of Joseph and Seralda Beard Houston:

1. Mary J. Houston was born 28 February 1847 in Panola County, Mississippi, according to a family report. We can find no records for her after she was a small child in 1850, but some report her marriage to a Jefferson Hoyle in Tate County, Mississippi on 9 October 1866. No further information has been found, and we cannot vouch for this marriage.

1. John W. Houston was born in April 1848 in Panola County, Mississippi. He was only eleven when his father died, and as the eldest son John must have shouldered family responsibilities early. He married Eliza V. or F. Anderson about the year 1869. She was born 1 February 1848 in Panola County, Mississippi, the daughter of William and Melinda Anderson of that county, who lived very close to the Beard family in Panola County. John and Eliza are not yet found in 1870. In 1880 they lived in neighboring Tate County, Mississippi with five children, and they lived two homes away from his mother, Seralda. By 1900 they still lived in Tate County, they were married thirty years, and nine of their twelve children were still living. John W. Houston died 28 September 1909. In 1910 his widow Eliza lived with her married daughter Lillie Holliman in Tate County. Ten years later, on the 1920 census Eliza was listed with her married daughter, Eula Houston Whitsell, in Tate County. In 1930, Eliza Anderson Houston was listed as 84 years old and still lived in the home of Eula Whitsell in Tate County. Eliza Anderson Houston is said to have died on 25 April 1930 in Sarah, Tate County, Mississippi.

2. Frances Newton "Frank" Houston was born 25 September 1870 in Mississippi. He married Lula Virginia Kimzey on 1 September 1888 in Panola County, Mississippi. She was born 14 February 1870, the daughter of Humphrey Posey Kimsey and wife Mary Annie Howard. Frances and Lula had a child born, probably their first child, who died. Their second child was born in 1892 in Tate County, Mississippi. Between 1892 and 1894, they moved to Arkansas for a few years, as their third and fourth children were born there. They were then back in Mississippi by 1898 for the birth of their fifth child in September of that year. They were all listed on the 1900 census in Panola County, Mississippi with four of five children still living. Included in their household count was William Mann, "orphan", who was born in Missouri in 1885. In 1902, their last son was born in Mississippi; their last child, a daughter, was born in Oklahoma, so they must have tried a stint in Indian lands. Lula had relatives who lived in Oklahoma at this time. It appears that Lula Kimzey Houston probably died at the birth or shortly after, for she died on 16 February 1908 in Durant, Bryan County, Oklahoma and is buried at the Highland Cemetery in Durant. The baby girl was named for her mother, Lula. Frances Newton Houston brought the children back to Tate County, Mississippi, where he married a second time, to Ann, who was born in Mississippi about 1878. She is listed with him on the 1910 census, married for the first time, and only married six months. Frank was listed as married for the second time. Next door was his younger brother Clarence. Frank Houston must have died before 1920, probably in Tate County. We do not find him nor Ann on a further census. All his children were living in homes of their siblings on the 1920 census. The known children were:
3. Elmer Franklin Houston was born on 14 April 1892 in Strayhorn, Tate County, Mississippi. He married about 1914, probably in Tate County, to Annie Austella "Stella" Aldridge, the daughter of Augustus W. and Rhoda A. Aldridge of Tate County. She was born on 16 July 1892 in Mississippi. Her sister Lillie Aldridge married Elmer's brother, John Humphreys Houston, about the same year. When he filed a draft registration in 1917 in Tate County, Elmer lived in Sarah in Tate County and claimed a wife, child, and an underage sister as dependents. The sister would be Lula, about ten at that time and living with him. In 1920, Elmer and Stella were still in Tate County, with two small daughters and his sister in their home. In neighboring Panola County in 1930, Elmer and Stella had a total of six children at the table. His sister Lula, now listed as Christine, was still in their home. Elmer Franklin Houston died on 15 January 1978 in Panola County. He was buried at Flag Lake Cemetery in Strayhorn, Tate County, Mississippi. Stella Aldridge Houston died five months later, on 9 July 1978 and was laid to rest next to him.
3. John Humphreys Houston was born on 25 August 1894 in Arkansas. There is some question as to his birth date, as on the 1900 census he was listed born August 1893, on his draft card he listed the date as 25 July 1894, and on his gravestone the date reads 25 August 1894. We have chosen to list the gravestone record until proven wrong. He married about 1914 to Lillie Viola Aldridge, another daughter of Augustus and Rhoda Aldridge, who was born on 29 November 1895 in Mississippi. Her elder sister Stella married to John's brother, Elmer Franklin Houston, in about the same year. On his draft card for World War I, John lived in Sarah in Tate County, farmed, and had a wife and one child. In 1920 in Tate County, John and Viola had a small son in the home, and John's brother Richard B. Houston lived with them. In 1930 in Tate County, John and Viola had just one son in their home.
3. Annie Blanche Houston was born on 9 February 1896 in Arkansas. About 1918, she married James Roderick McIver, the son of James Stevens and Martha E. McIver. He was born on 16 June 1896 in Strayhorn, Tate County, Mississippi. James had filled out a draft card in June 1918, apparently right before he married Annie Houston. The card, filed in Tunica County, Mississippi, stated that his nearest relative was Jennie McIver in Savage, Mississippi. In 1920, James and Annie McIver lived in Tate County. Frank Houston, Annie's younger brother, lived with them, age 18, and Jim McIver, a cousin, also was in their home as a seven year old. By 1930, James and Annie were parents of three children. They still had "extras" in the home, as his cousin and a niece both lived with them. We do not know a death date for James McIver. Annie Houston McIver died in August 1975 in Sarah, Panola County, Mississippi; no burial place is known.
3. Richard Buell "Dick" Houston, born 6 September 1898 in Mississippi, filed his draft card in Tate County, Mississippi. He was a farmer for C. H. Holloman in Sarah, Mississippi, and this would be his uncle. Mr. Holliman was the husband of Richard's aunt, Lillie Melinda Houston. In 1920, still single, Richard lived in the home of his brother John in Tate County. That year, he married Doxie Eudora Holliman, his cousin and the daughter of the man for whom he worked, Clarence Hildreath Holliman. In 1930, Richard and Doxie lived in Tate County with their four children. Doxie died on 23 March 1977 in Panola County, Mississippi and was buried at the Bethesda Cemetery in Senatobia, Tate County, Mississippi. Richard died in Tate County in March 1984 and is at Bethesda as well.
3. Frank E. Houston was born on 15 January 1902 in Mississippi. He was with his sister Annie Houston McIver in Tate County in 1920. About 1925, he married Lois L. Spencer, born 19 February 1908 in Mississippi, daughter of Roy Manchester and Willie Spencer. In 1930, Frank and Lois had two small daughters and lived with her two brothers and a sister in their home. Frank Houston died 16 April 1989 in Panola County, Mississippi. Lois Spencer Houston passed away on 22 November 1994 in the same. No burial places are yet known.
3. Lula Christine Houston was born about 1908 in Oklahoma. In 1920 and in 1930 she lived with her brother Elmer Franklin Houston and family. We lose track of her after that; no marriage record is found.
2. William Henry Houston, who was born about 1873 or 1874 on the 1880 census, may possibly be the William born 8 February 1870 in Sarah, Tate County, Mississippi who married Malissa Catherine Holliday on 10 July 1906 in Mississippi. They had a child, R. T. Houston, born July 1908 and died the same month.
2. Ada Effie Houston was born 25 March 1874 and she married Charles Allen in Tate County, Mississippi on 9 August 1894. In the 1900 Tate County census, we  find  Charles Allen, who was born April of 1874 in Mississippi and he is married for five years to Effie. They have no children of their own, but three small Todd children are living with them, all listed as "wards". They are Leonie, Wayne, and Bertha, ages eight, six, and four. No relationship is known yet.  We do not know if Charles died or if they parted ways, but in 1908 in Sarah, Tate County, Mississippi, Ada Effie Houston Allen married George Napoleon Provow.  George was born on 5 January 1864 in Henry County, Tennessee.  He was married a first time to Lucinda Miller, who died in 1907, and they had a daughter named Mattie Eula in 1891.  In 1910, George and Effie were listed in Henry County, Tennessee, married for two years, with his daughter Eula and also the two sons they had together. They lived in Henry County for the rest of their lives and were listed there on every succeeding census.  Ada Effie Provow died on 9 December 1950 in Henry County and was buried at the Spring Hill Cemetery there.  George passed away on 14 April 1959 in same and he was buried at Spring Hill.  They had three children together:
3.  George Vardaman Provow   to be continued
3.  Harvey Eugene Provow
3.  Mary Frances Provow
2. Lena B. Houston has various ages reported on the censuses. In 1880 she was listed as a child of two, but twenty years later, in 1900, she was listed as aged seventeen. That census reported her birthdate as September of 1882, but she was already two years old on the 1880 enumeration. Occasionally families would name a child for a deceased sibling and this is always possible here, but more likely it is census or reporting error. We will list her birth as September 1878. In 1910, Lena was listed as a single lady of thirty, living in the home of Clarence and Lillie Holliman, her sister's family, in Tate County, Mississippi.
2. Eula Estelle Houston was born on 6 February 1880 in Tate County, Mississippi. On 12 September 1898 in Tate County, she married James Levi Whitsell. He was born on 11 May 1876 in Tate County, the son of Samuel George Whitsell and his wife Rachel Elizabeth Jenkins. On the 1900 census, Eula and James Whitsell lived next door to his widowed mother in Tate County with a six month old daughter. In 1910, Jim and Eula Whitsell were still in Tate County with three children in the home. Next door was the family of Bud Ivy and wife Effie Whitsell. By 1920, they were still in Tate County and two children were added to their family. Eula's mother Eliza Houston, aged 73, was living in their home, as she was in 1930 as well, aged 84. Also living with the Whitsells in 1920 were Lillie Houston Holliman, Eula's widowed sister, along with her three children. James Levi Whitsell died 14 February 1945 and laid to rest at Truslow Cemetery in Tate County. Eula Estelle Houston Whitsell died on 7 August 1957 in Sarah, Tate County, and also lies at Truslow Cemetery. Their known children were:

In 1920, Morris lived with his McCullough grandparents in Henry County, Tennessee. In 1930, Morris and Grace lived at Panola County with their two small daughters. They would eventually have five children. Morris died in August 1960 in Panola County and Grace Whitsell Bell died on 6 May 1982 in Greenwood, LeFlore County, Mississippi. No burial site is known for sure, but it may be Truslow Cemetery in Tate County, where their son is buried. They had children Margaret, Mary, an unknown daughter, an unknown son, and a son, Jerry Wayne Bell, born 24 May 1938 in Panola County and died 21 August 2005 in Greenwood, LeFlore County, Mississippi.

In 1900, Lillie and Clarence were listed in their own household in Tate County with no children yet. In 1910, things had changed, as in their home they had five children, Clarence's brother, and Lillie's mother Eliza Houston as well as Dolph and Lena, Lillie's siblings. Lillie and Clarence would eventually raise eleven children. Clarence died at age 46 in 1923 and on the 1930 census Lillie is a widow with her three youngest children at home.
