ID: I13393 Name: Susan Garnetta Harrell Sex: F Birth: 11 AUG 1861 Death: UNKNOWN in Johnson County,
Texas

Marriage 1 Decatur Noonan Butler , Jr b: 18 APR 1858 in Amite County,

Susan Garnetta Harrell Sex: F Birth: 11 AUG 1861 is my grandmother. She maintained that her aunt, Penelope Mercer Borden, left her a child's portion of the Borden estate. When she came to Fort Worth, Texas to claim the inheritance, her Borden cousin refused to give her any part of the inheritance. I wonder if anyone knows how Susan was related to Penelope Mercer Borden?
