Starks Property near Bedford
|Donna Stark tells us: “The log cabin that you have listed as Starks was ours. My grandfather and grandmother Daniel Hebron and Lucy Alice Lee Stark lived there. My daddy and his brothers and sisters were born there. The log cabin was built before Strother James Stark came to Bedford from Hardin Co. (Confederate Soldier) but he built a larger room on the lower side (south). To my sorrow, when my mother died our family sold the farm and the log house was sold for the logs by the buyer.” Thanks for the update, Donna.|
