Footstone


"Frederick Berryman, Jr. built this house in the late 1890s, at the time of his marriage to Ardalee Fenley, and planted the now large Magnolia trees to shade the porch.  The large limestone blocks remaining at the site were both the corner foundation stones and some remnants of the chimney.  House destroyed by storm." - Martha Berryman, "From the papers of Hugh Barclay Berryman (1900-1983)."  This plot is near the Berryman Family Cemetery.


The rocks from the chimney


"Frederick Berryman, Sr. built this house in 1860s in anticipation of his marriage to Martha Ann Fort.  It is both log and board construction, with siding added at time of construction.  He also built the limestone well adjacent to house.  According to Grover Berryman and Hugh B. Berryman, the red brick chimney is a replacement from about the 1920s, the earlier chimney being of stone similar to the well." - Martha Berryman, "From the papers of Hugh Barclay Berryman (1900-1983)."  This house is down the road from the Berryman Family Cemetery.


The bridge down the road from Frederick Berryman, Sr.'s old house was built by Allen Berryman.  According to Lucile Berryman Doyen, after the bridge, the road forks.  To the right is Brookeland about 4 miles and to the left is ghost town Remlig about 4 miles.  In Remlig, TX, there was the Gilmer Saw Mill.  There was already a Texas town named Gilmer so the town was named Remlig [Gilmer spelled backwards].
