I can shed some light on the Baldridge family who are buried in Plano Pioneer Cemetery.  You have done a great job in finding the ones who have no stones.  You may not know that little Edna Byers is also part of that family.  Her parents were James F. Byers and  Elizabeth (Lizzie) Baldridge, dau. of Wm. F. Baldridge, Sr.  The Byers lived in Lincoln Co., TN, and James died there in 1880.  Lizzie then brought her children to Plano to be near her family. 


William F. Baldridge, Sr. was b. in NC; moved with his family to Giles Co., TN, where he married Elizabeth Caroline Mitchell.  They then moved to Northern AL and finally settled in Madison Co.  They had 11 children.  Elizabeth died there in 1866.  Wm. then mar. Dorcas McDonald and they moved to Plano in 1878.  His son Henry and three daughters came about the same time.  The daughters were Mary (Abernathy), Pamela (Mrs. John H. Reedy), and Lizzie (Byers).  Lizzie mar. W. W. Ramsey while in Plano and they moved to Ft. Worth.  William F. Baldridge, Jr. also came to TX and settled in Dallas.  Julia A. (Landman) Baldridge was his wife.  They were my husband's g-grandparents. 
I am the one who put the Baldridge vertical file. in the library.  I'm delighted that someone put it to good use.  Hope it will help someone else.
