    Probably taken in the summer of 1911 when the couple moved from Liberty County to Bee County, Texas, because of Zeke's health. He suffered from "paralysis," and the effects of a stroke are evident in this photo. He died November 5 as the result of a fall and was buried there. Sarah moved back to Liberty County to live with their children until her death in 1927.
