  • Notes 
    • 1) "Joseph Warren Folk came to Texas with his wife Molly Nobles, and their baby daughter, Mamie in 1894... They came to Freestone County in 1897 from Alabama by wagon and established their home in a two room log house, two and one half miles north of Stewards Mill, Texas. Joseph was an honest and Christian man. He was a member of the Methodist Church and carried his family to church at Stewards Mill every Sunday. He rode a little red mule named Jack and would take his grandchildren, Nobles and Molly, with him until one Sunday the mule was so frisky he was afraid and then he took them in the wagon. He had a well auger and syrup mill. He has bored many wells throughout Freestone County and talked of striking coal. He made a lot of syrup with the help of his family and also farmed."
