Anna Pearl Lankford had a youthful relationship with Marion Sylvester Bement which produced a child, Grachia Belle Bement. Anna and Marion never married as she was sent away to live with an Aunt to give birth to Grachia. The following is an excerpt of information of letter from her grand-daughter, Bebe Deane (Hayes) Garcia to Dennis BeMent in October 1998:spouse: >Bement, Marion Sylvester (1884 - 1968)
It is sort of interesting how I learned about my Bement connection. My son had a school project of making his family tree. I had never even thought about my ancestors before that time but got caught up in the whole thing as I helped him by asking my mother questions. Her maiden name was "Brough" so we started asking her questions about that line. I guess she felt a little guilty about us searching the wrong name so she told us the story of her birth. My grandmother was a very young unmarried girl when she became pregnant with my mother. She was immediately sent off to stay with an aunt while she had her baby as it was quite a scandal in those days. While she was at her aunt's house, Sampson James Brough was a neighbor's son and had secretly cared about her. He went to her aunt and asked for my grandmother's hand in marriage. They were married shortly after my mother's birth. It wasn't until my mother was 16 years old that she was told that he was not her real father. My mother and grandmother were in town one day and a man was on the other side of the street. My grandmother told my mother to look at him and she would tell her something about him when they got home. That was my mother's real father, Marion Sylvester Bement. I don't know why they didn't marry and I don't even know if they were in love. My mother said that she also saw her real grandmother, Lois Melinda (Lewis) Bement drive by in a carriage one day. My grandmother said they were both aware that my mother was related to them. Anyway, to make a long story longer, my grandmother (Anna Pearl Lankford) and James Brough had a wonderful long and happy marriage and they had 9 more children. In 1974, my mother passed away and my dad and son went to Benton County, Arkansas, to visit my dad's sisters. While there, Tony (my son) wanted to visit the Mt. Comfort Cemetery in Washington County because so many of my dad's family was buried there. Tony wanted to get some pictures of tombstones as the genealogy bug had stayed with him. They came across a plot with tombstones for Marion Sylvester Bement, George S. Bement, and Lois Melinda Bement. We sent away from death certificates and found that George S. and Lois Melinda were Marion's parents.
I then decided to put a query in a genealogy magazine in Benton County, Arkansas. I got a response from a lady who was a free-lance reporter and had written many articles about Lois Melinda Bement as she was quite a lady in the community and had lived within a couple of weeks of her 104th birthday! She had remained alert in her old age and had so many stories to tell. This reporter sent me copies of newspapers and the name and address of one of my mother's first cousins. I kept the name and address for quite awhile before doing anything with it but I finally sat down and composed a letter and told these people who I was. I couldn't believe it when I immediately received a letter back from them. They were planning a trip to my area that month and asked if they could stop to visit me. There were two sisters and a brother and they were the most wonderful people. They brought pictures and names and address of other Bement researchers until I had more information on this family than any of my other names. If only my mother could have lived to know about her family. She knew that a brother was living about an hour and a half from us and she knew when he died. I don't really know how she kept track of them.
