Alta Bertte (Tarrant) "Patches" Santy, daughter of Mordecaia W. Tarrant  and Jimmie Grey (Parker) Tarrant was born July 7, 1906, and died April 19, 1975.  

Virgil Martin "Rosie" Santy, son of Leroy "Roy" Santy and Margaret (Stidham) Santy. was born April 17, 1902, in Hamilton County, TX, and died March 3, 1959.

"Patches" Tarrant married  'Rosie" Santy on June 6, 1926, Hamilton County Marriage Record Bk. 9, p. 5.

 They had two children:

Leroy Tarrant "Buddy" and Virgene.  Buddy was born  August 22, 1928.

Mrs. Santy taught at  Goar, at  Blue Ridge and perhaps other rural  schools in Hamilton County, prior to teaching in Hamilton High School.  She was my English I, English III, and Speech teacher in high school.  To her I am indebted for developing both oral and written skills I have used all of my life.

Mr. Santy taught science in Hamilton High School, as well as being Superintendent prior to 1949.  He was a good science teacher--but science was not my favorite subject.  He positively influenced many young lives both in the classroom, as well as well as in photography, and short wave radio.

The Santys were active members of First Baptist church in Hamilton.

The Virgil M. Honor Society of Hamilton High School was named for Mr. Santy.

Mr. and Mrs. Santy were interred in the IOOF Cemetery in Hamilton.
