I recently found the death cert. of Mary Alice Pringle, the 9th child & 3rd daughter of John A. Pringle, (eldest son of Abraham) and Mary Susan Overstreet Pringle (who is the second wife of John A.). John A. & Susan and atleast 3 children, died in route to Limestone/Falls Cos., TX from Lauderdale Co., MS in 1867 / 1868. There are 2 remaining daughters unaccounted for of John A. & Susan; they are Elvira b. 1859 & Lela/Lila b. 1867.

Mary Alice Pringle was b. 24 Jun 1862 in Lauderdale Co., MS and d. 11 Sep 1928, Dallas, Dallas Co., TX. (SEE....www.familysearch.org)
Her name on Death Cert.:..................Mrs. Mary Alice Eberhart
The Texas Death Cert. Number is:.....38721

Alice is probably buried in an unmarked grave in Grove Hill Memorial Cemetery, Dallas Co., TX, next to Henry Wright Everheart & his wife Alice Viola Kettrell Everheart. (Ref: SEE FAG # 120637370)

The informant , Henry Wright Eberhart is her step-grandson, who she raised from age 3 or 4 and they both lived in Dallas after 1910, when prior they lived in Grayson Co., TX. Grayson Co., TX, is full of Everhearts, Everharts & Eberharts all related. Eberhardt was the named Americanized. Henry W.'s father was Jacob Henry 'Jake' Everheart b. May 1860 in TN. (Son of James 'Jim' E. Everheart b. 1824 McMinn Co., TN) Jim had four wives of which Mary Alice Pringle was the fourth and she was quite younger.

Mary Alice Pringle Hale was married on 4 Oct 1888, Red River Co., TX. to James 'Jim' E. Everhart b. 30 Nov 1824, McMinn Co., TN and he d. 4 Mar 1909, Grayson Co., TX. Alice's first husband's last name was Hale.

I have the following children born of John A. & Mary Susan Overstreet Pringle marr. 18 Jan 1851: 1) Matthew James b. 25 Mar 1851, 2) Samuel Sylvester 'Ceburn' b. 17 Oct 1851, 3) John A. Jr. b. ca. 1853, 4) William Alexander b. 14 Apr 1853 (my GGF), 5) Christopher b. ca. 1854, 6) George Kannady b. 2 Jun 1858, 7) Sarah Catherine 'Katy' b. 20 Nov 1858, 8) Elvira b. ca. 1859, 9) Mary Alice b. 24 Jun 1862, 10) John Wesley b. 24 Nov 1863, & Lela/Lila b. ca 1867. PS. I know that some of the dates do not fit exactly, but these are from actual proof documents.)

If any questions, let me know. Sam O.

John, Delighted to see another descendant of Abraham! Women are so often lost to their families after marriage. I notice also that Pringles from thes lines keep the same names always! We have Samuels, Wesleys, Sarah's, Catherine's, Williams, etc. for many generations. We are descended from William, brother to Abraham, and mostly still live in SC.
Great to get this info and good to hear from you. Happy NEW year!

Hi Deloras, long time since you posted. Happy 2017 to you!!
I worked on Mary Alice Pringle for about ten years off and on until I pieced it all together. Thanks to my grandfather, Willie Loyd Pringle, son of William Alexander Pringle, son of John A. & Susan Overstreet Pringle. W.A. was one of the children who did make it to TX from MS in 1866/67. Grandpa had a good memory and told me the list of all his aunts & uncles in 1970. I am glad to hear from you. I wish we could get the research & posts happening again. Sam O.
