Who is your oldest documented ancestor? Wes Klabzuba, (great-grandfather)
Comments:
Mollie Klabzuba Grimes, born Prague, OK, 1902, was my grandmother. I heard many interesting stories about our family, and would like to know anything other Klabzubas would care to share. I remember visits to Prague where I met Klabzuba, Kohler, and Novak relatives as a child, but have lost touch with them. I am still in contact with Richard Klabzuba, Tulsa, and Shirley (Leder/ Tompkins) Singletary. To contact me:

Who is your oldest documented ancestor? Albert W. Harber(Harbeur)
Comments:
My Father was the son of Albert harbeur & Helen Waldmann, B; 3-12-1924-All I know is he had 6 children by someone else named Norman,Paul, Gladys, Frank, Albert, Jr., & April-probably in Florida.
I saw a picture in 1975 & I thought I was looking a my dad, doubled. I've been trying to find these "uncles & Aunts" of mine for at least 10 years, but haven't been able to get any personal info from my familt-although my father, William(b.3-12-1924) GAVE ME HIS BLESSING.-He however didn't want to be involved.
Now that he has passed away, I would like to meet/ or be a part of this side of my family.
I am the youngest of Bill's 4 children(Daniel, David, Dana & Laura(myself).
There are also two daughters from David(April & Elaine)
I have no wish in hurting anyone- it's of my own personal interest,unless my siblings wish to get involved. I guess I'm looking for my ROOTS!

Comments:
Hi, Tresa--beautiful site! I don't know if you remember me, but we graduated from Skyline together (I usually went by "Ricky" back then). I remember you mostly from German Club. I was surprised and pleased to see your name in the paper recently in reference to your having been honored by the Dallas Genealogical Society. I looked you up on the web, and here I am! I'm a violinist, violin teacher, and math tutor, but I've been into genealogy for a few years now and have enjoyed the challenge immensely. (I also relate to your neck issues, having lived with some fairly serious upper-back & neck pain for about ten years--I finally got surgery about a year and a half ago.) Anyway, feel free to check out my site on RootsWeb:
http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?db=ebrahinsky
My own ancestry is at
http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=AHN&db=ebrahinsky&id=I0001
and my wife's is at
http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=AHN&db=ebrahinsky&id=I0002
(Hers is a lot more interesting, I think!)

I know you're really busy, but I'd love to hear from you if you're inclined and have a few moments.

This is a wonderful site. I am researching all the Nicholson's I can find. Indexing them in one of my Family Tree Files.

It's the Christmas Season so I can't put much time and effort right now. Will try to connect with you in the future.

I just happened to see your website. I too have time on my hands due to illness & it has become a past time for me to try to look into the background of my family. My dad, Ronald George Kramer, is the son of George Lawrence Kramer (who died in 1/1988). I am just now starting on the research for his side of the family as previously I had done some research for my husband's side from Ireland. I just happened to notice the name "Kramer" listed on your husbands side of the family. I have no information to really pass on at this time, but when/if I do, I promise to send whatever I come up with.

Great site...keep up the VERY hard & dedicated work!

Hello, i'm just getting into my relatives and am now addicted to this hunt!! I got your site from SusieResearch and it started with my interest in my Peveler connection. I'm in the Daniel side(she is many into the David side) I'm a relative of Daniel's daughter Sabina who married Isaac Sailor, their daughter is my great grandmother. Her name is Ellen Perkins Sailor and married John William Norman in Missouri,had my grandmother Margaret Ellen in Missori and moved to Oklahoma.But i do not have enough info,she was born in 1858 in Texas as was another cousin John Stephen Ham who is son of David's daughter Rachel. They must have been just down visiting as rest of info shows Missouri facts. So visiting Daniel's family?? I don't know where Ellen was born or when except 1858, cousin John was born Mar 21 1858 Bonham, Fannin Texas. I also don't know when she died except before 1910?? I would love to hear any Peveler info you might have, thanks so much donna whittaker

Who is your oldest documented ancestor? Richard Ferrill ca 1665 NC
Comments:
I am inclined to believe that Ferrill and Ferrell are simply variations in spelling. That said, I have created an internet book, on line, under the name, "CLAN FERRILL."
The book describes, with many gaps, the migration of a an extended Irish-American family.

Thomas Alhanen Ferrill was born in 1847, served in the Confederate army from MS, migrated to TX, married and had several children {this is covered in the chapter, CLAN FERRILL, in Texas]. The USGenWeb coordinator for Llano County TX has posted chapters of the book on the web. I am attaching the Texas chapter.
I don't know the name of the Ferrell in your ancestry. I have several other chapters [NC,SC,GA,AL,MS,LS] that touch on the movement of the clan from NC to TX.
I continue to add to the book, as I obtain more detailed information. I will be happy for you to link your files to mine.

The USGenWeb coordinator for Llano County TX has posted chapters of the book on the web. I am attaching the Texas chapter.
I don't know the name of the Ferrell in your ancestry. I have several other chapters [NC,SC,GA,AL,MS,LS] that touch on the movement of the clan from NC to TX.
I continue to add to the book, as I obtain more detailed information. I will be happy for you to link your files to mine.

Recently several people have logged onto ENS N. T. Shows wartime journal of happenings aboard USS PCE(R)852 during WWII. I was the Executive Officer during the period of his journal. During the 90 days we were at Okinawa, the navy lost over 5,000 killed and several thousand more wounded.
Many of these passed over the decks of the USS PCE(R)852, a combat/rescue ship. The C.O., LT Henry J. Irwin, USNR received the Navy Cross and the entire crew received the Navy Commendation. I am glad the journal is available to record part of our wartime history. I recently met Newsom T. Shows, III at a ship reunion and we discussed his father, ENS Newsom T. Shows, Jr. who was the Engineering Officer aboard the USS PCE(R)852, and who died in 1951 in an auto accident.

My mothers people lived primarily in Maryland, PA, and VA. However, I started roaming around my fathers side and was pleasantly surprised to see that so much is documented. Thanks for all the work. My father, Dewey Lester Ward, born 29 October 1919 is living in Yuma, Arizona. His father was Eulus C. Ward (often called EC in the famly) and he died in 1981 in Laurel, MS.

My line is as follows starting with my daughter : Mary Helen Simmons Mc Dow; Sue Ann Smock Simmons; Sivolah Bass Smock; Daisey Dean Laughlin Bass; Sarah Almedia Williams Laughlin. I have been trying for 4 or 5 months to get past Sarah, however, I have been experiencing an extremely difficult time finding documentation concerning Sarah. I was also told that Sarah's mother was Jamina Massey Williams and that Lewis C. Williams was married to Jamina in Tenn. I am unable to obtain the needed
documents to support this, nor find the correct locations where they lived. I have been able to document my other family lines without too many problems. If you could help me I will be very grateful.
I can understand your working horizontally. I am being treated for the second time for cancer at M.D. Anderson Hospital in Houston, Texas. I am being told that our medical history is recognized at M.D.Anderson as that of another family. This is what started my search. To my great surprise, the one person in the family I would never have thought to question about her family, never told her children about their grandmother's name. The last living sibling is pushing 90 years old and said she and her sisters quit asking becouse their mother would start crying. The one thing that would have told my aunt and her sisters about Granny's mom was a Bible. That Bible disappeared the day of my grandparents' funeral. They were both killed in a car accident. I think you see why I am struggling with this particular matter.
I will start radiation treatment on Nov.21. I am hoping to have all the pieces of the puzzle together by then.
Thank You,
Sue Ann

I note a posting from Tammy Melton Baptiste, in MS.

On a tangent from the name Baptiste, Louisa Baptiste was married to a Baptiste, who died probably during the period 1860-1875. She then married John Wesley Ferrill, in Escatawpa (Jackson County) MS in 1876. Their remains are buried in Ferrill Cemetery, Escatawpa. Louisa and John Ferrill raised a son of Mr. Baptiste. Louisa Baptiste-Ferrill died in 1937. Six children were born to John and Louisa. Pat Creel is the RootsWeb coordinator for Jackson County (2006) and is my distant cousin...I recall that Louisa was born and grew up in Mobile County AL.

Also, John Franklin Gilmore md Temperance "Tilda" HEAD 22 Mar 1874 Bk C page 401 Union Co., AR. It appears that Tilda must have died as John Franklin is listed on 1880 Kaufman Co., TX md to a Emma/Eva Edwards. Tilda was the daughter of Edmond HEAD & Sarah Collinsworth.

I enjoyed viewing your web site, as I was drawn to it by the surname Bouda. My name is John Bouda and must admit I know very little about our name.
I have discovered that it may mean little house in Czech. My father (also Franz H. Bouda) was born in Vienna Austria 1928. He believed that we were originally from Bohemia but did not elaborate. I can see by the effort you put into your site that you are a very busy person, if you have the time to return my email any insight you may have into the Bouda name would be greatly appreciated.

I was so excited when I put in my grandmother's name on Ancestry.com and found your name. My father's mother was Ella Eugenia Mecom, daughter of Perlina and Elisha Hart Mecom. Some of the information about Ella is incorrect and if you would like, I would be glad to send you correct information about her family.

Again, you have made my day. I enjoyed reading your websites. I wish we were closer as your classes sound so interesting. I took my first class Saturday at our public library and hope to be able to take some classes in the fall at our local college. I have been bitten by the bug, for sure.

Are you related to the Mecoms?

I am retired, at present, from the our local school district (secretary to assistant superintendent) and trying to get things in order around the house before this hurricane season begins. I live in Port Arthur and we did have some damage but were very blessed.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Noah is my oldest ancestor that is documented in Texas, ..particularly in Erath County. Stevenville was a meeting place for my Texas forebears. My family originated in Albany New Amsterdam (NY) and the first born was baptised in Kingston, New Amsterdam in 1638. The name Kuykendall was first used in the Old Kirk at Kingston. It is a toponym depicting where the family resided. Koick-n-dal) which means in Dutch, " looking over the valley", became our family name at that time. The British required that last names be used in transfer of property. Previously our poor family had no sir-name. Prior to the Civil War the Kuykendall family from whence I derived moved to Texas in response to the advertisement of Free Land allotted by Sam Houston and Austen.

I was looking for information on my great grandmother, Bertha Elvira Shows, and came across your web site. It is a very good one. Bertha's father was Thedrick Tobias Shows and her mother was Eleanor Mildred Wigley. Bertha also had a twin brother named Berthel, I believe and then it goes to Adam Shows, John Shows, John Adams Shows, John Conrad Schauss, Johann Adam Schauss and Johann Adam Schauss. So far, this part of my lineage is the most in depth. Whoever, studied this line must have been very good to trace it back that far. My great grandmother married Cornelius Fred Castellow and I believe one of her brothers, Ocy Pressley married one of his sisters as well. So I gather that both families lived near each other in Lavaca County, Texas. Great site

Who is your oldest documented ancestor? Henry Mitchell
Comments:
I have run into a line of Mitchells that I didn't expect to find, my Mom was a Mitchell, Eleanor Elizabeth Mitchell born in Birmingham, Ala. on 1/1/1919 to John Cuyler Mitchell and Sammie Lou Borders. John Cuyler was born in Mumford, Alabama and Sammie Lou in Troup County Georgia. My paternal grandfather was Patrick Henry Whitley and my grandmother was Mittle Falls Newton.
It is through my search on Grandmother's Newtons that I came across the Mitchells that I didn't expect to find. John Newton born circa 1749 in Lunenburg County Virginia and married first Mary Mitchell and second Naomi Mitchell. Both Mitchell girls are reported as daughters of Isaac Mitchell and Sarah Satterwhite, Isaac was born in 1730 in Granville, NC and Sarah in (no county that I can find, so far) NC. I found this information in the Southern Genealogies but I don't have the entire title or volume number at hand. I have a gut feeling the those Mitchells might at some point be kin to Mother's Mitchells. My gggrandfather, Thomas B. Mitchell moved to Georgia from Union County, SC as did his wife, Louisa Eliza Bevill but their third child Thomas was born in Tennessee in 1849 and it seems they stayed only a short time in TN. Their next child, William H. Mitchell was born in Whitfield County, Dalton District, Georgia in 1851 and the remaining children were all born in Georgia.

I can't pinpoint why I think these two Mitchell lines are related but I'm still a Mitchell or both sides of my family. I've only been actively doing this research for a couple of years and I have had some wonderful help along the way. I hope to start a Family Web-Page fairly soon, meaning when I figure out HOW. At any rate, not asking will never get one many answers so I thought a contact was in order. Many thanks, Jim Whitley

I have found several old photos of Newsom Jr and siblings, as well as tons of his time in the war. Of course most of them do not identify anyone. I'm making educated guesses based on family resemblence. Anyway, is there anyone interested in copies of them? Over the next year (I'm being realistic here because in a perfect world it would be a couple of weeks but I have a 6 year old and school is beginning in two weeks, so it'll be a year) I'm going to scan all of these pictures, so I can either mail a copy of the disk when I'm done, or attach it as a file (if I develop the computer savy to do so) . Also I need help identifying people. I can pick out Newsom Jr, but his sisters and brothers get kind of iffy. Plus I think I have photos of family from Norval's time god help me there.

My family line runs through the second child of John A. and Margaret Bone, William Bone and Margaret Lansden. Their 5th son James and his unknown wife gave birth to Jane Catherine Bone who married Adam Columbus King and gave birth to John Bone King and he married Antoinette McCrary. Their Daughter Anna Clara married Henry Marvin Simpson and they had my mother Anna Louise who married my father Otha Haywood Shannon. I have now been working on my ancestors and their descendants for the past three years and have just come to the Shouse family. Thanks for the information.

Who is your oldest documented ancestor? ?
Comments:
I was checking Roots Web and saw your information acout Margaret Melton, wife of John H Melton. Margaret's mother was Elizabeth Yates, Jane Cannon was her step mother. Henry Waller married Elizabeth Yates 1/11/1830. I don't know why or when she died, her line goes back to the 15oo's on roots web. Henry Waller married Jane Cannon 9/28/1843 they didn't have any children. Henry is my GGG Grandfather. Margaret had 4 brothers and one sister. James H, Clifford L, Aaron M, Archabald N, And Sarah. I believe that Henry Waller was the son of Aaron Waller born ABT.1788 in Tn. and the grandson of Thomas Waller and Jenny Carter but I can't prove it. I hope this information helps you. Bill

Who is your oldest documented ancestor? Chas. Frank. Dunham b. 1867
Comments:
The SHGS (Sweet Home Genealogical Society) in Sweet Home, Oregon has recently received the task of locating relatives of the Chas. Frank Dunham family - especially descendents of Lacy May (Dunham) McKean, Claude and Bertha Dunham, James Fine Dunham. Someone abandoned 5 photo albums dating from the late 1880's up thru 1982. I have ID'd one Michael Dunham born ca 1950's and his is a sad story. If you can help me locate living descendents of the Dunham family, I would be most appreciative. The older photos are priceless and our local museum would like to display them....however, we can scan them and provide copies to all relatives who request them. Let me know if you and I can find the Dunhams now out there somewhere.

Most grateful,

Once I organize my data, I'll be back in touch to see if you would like any information on his descendants in Missouri and also to see if you have any other information you'd be willing to share with me to assist in my research. I really like your photo gallery, but wish more of the photos had a date and location to help identify people. Thanks for the great site !

By the way have you heard of the Rutherford name being connected to Thomas Mathis Sr.? There was one woman there that thought Thomas's wife was a Rutherford.

Love your web site. Found some reference on Family Search to Josephus Rollins or Rollans marriage to Susie Brown on 17 May 1898 in Buncombe North Carolina. According to my Father-in-law they did not stay married and they were divorced. Rumor has that Josephus was a wanderer. I do have info on the remainder of the Rollins clan of Joseph and Lucinda, Josephus parents.

Hello. I have done a little work with Mildred Young Bouda, down in Huntsville, Ala. I'm ashamed to say that I've not maintained contact with her since we moved back to Michigan 2 1/2 years ago. I created a tree of both of our families, but have not been able to make a connection between them. I was able to place them about 40 miles apart in Czech. My family migrated to Wisconsin and Mass. My deepest probe was to Josef (of #25 Koryta, Bohemia), married to Marie Kauer. Their son Josef B. was born in 1851 and was the start of our family in Wisconsin, having arrived in the US in 1877 with wife Barbora and two sons. I know that there a lot of Bouda family members, the name even appears on the D Day memorial in France - - on the German side. I think I supplied Mildred with a copy of my work thru 2001.

I have a photo of a young woman by the name of "Gertie Melton". She is standing next to my grandfather, Walter Johnson. Walter was from Texas County. I don't know where the picture was taken. If Gertie is part of your Melton line, I'd be happy to send an e-mail of the photo to you. I don't know if Gertie and Walter were friends, relatives or what.

Comments:
I became interested in genealogy when my Mom was remembering more about the past then she was of the present. She always talked about her family when I was young, but as she aged, she spoke more about them and I became more interested. She told me once that her parents had no headstones on their graves, because they were too poor in the Depression (Oklahoma in 1931 and 1933) to buy them any. I promised her if I found where her parents were buried, I would get them headstones. She died in January 2000, and I have yet to keep my promise. I think your website is one of the best I've seen. I'm making it one of my "favorites".

My husband, Alan Oppel is related to you thru Esquire Chambers. Esquire's son Martin VanBueran Chambers married MaryAnn Prewitt, and their daughter Lucinda Nancy Chambers is our direct ancestor. Lucinda (Nancy) married John Jones, and their Daughter Ruby Izella Jones is my husband Alan Oppel's maternal grandmother. Ruby had a fascinating life, and eventually married Conrad Melvin Oppel, Alan's Grandfather. Interestingly enough, Conrad & Ruby had NO CHILDREN together. Conrad Oppel and his 1st wife, Sara (Betty) Burns are Alan's PATERNAL GRANDPARENTS, and Ruby Izella Jones Graham Graham Oppel when she was married to Chester Franklin Graham, are Alan's MATERNAL Grandparents. VERY confusing!!??!! Alan's Maternal Grandmother (Ruby Jones) married Alan's Paternal Granfather (Conrad Oppel) much later in life.
WHEW! What an interesting family tree!!
I SO MUCH appreciate your research, as I had no clue as to Ruby's family. THANKS!!!

I love your website thankyou. I have found Richard Taylor from Nottinghamshire, England. I don't know when he was born or who he was born to. But he was married to Sarah Nolidge 5 July 1761 at St. Mary's, Blyth, Nottinghamshire, England. His daughter Elizabeth Taylor was born 12 MAR 1762, married Joseph Garside (born 1760). The Garside line is the line I have researched the most. But I also have a Dunham side that I have been researching also. Its fun but very time consuming and frustrating at times. I wish that I had more time and resources to do more. But for right now its a hobby.

My cousin sent my dad Artemas Millsap a copy of the family geneology that she had gotten from the LDS archives. Her lineage consisted of mostly her direct line which left mine as only a mention. The Thomas Millsap lineage from 1740 is the shared one. Diana Treff and I are probably 3rd or fourth cousins, but our grandmothers were sisters, so I don't know what that does to our relationship. I think that O.R. Millsap (her grandfather) and Scott Perry Millsap (my grandfather) were either brothers or cousins. Anyhow, I am very interested in finding out infor.

Comments:
What a wonderful idea! Perhaps you can help me in my search for Samuel's parentage.
Samuel was born about 1793 in Chester Co., PA, and married Caroline Mendenhall, daughter of Adam and Eliza Allen Mendenhall. He would be my gr-gr-gr-grandfather. Samuel and Caroline's son, Adam, (my gr-gr-grandfather) was murdered in Enoch Twsp, Monroe Co., OH, while coming to the aid of a wife who was being assaulted by her husband. Adam left a wife, Rebecca Hall, and six children, one of whom was my gr-grandfather, Stephen Marshall.
I understand you probably concentrate more on the Mendenhall line, but wonder if you have anything, anything at all, that could help me locate Samuel's parents/brothers/sisters.
Thank you and keep up the good work.

I have a picture of Jesse (Jessie?) Melton and a picture of his headstone. He is buried in Union Hill Cemetery, in Yalobusha County, Ms. Also in this cemetery is a headstone of Jesse's wife, Margaret and Lizzie, their daughter, is also listed on the SAME headstone as her mother. Margaret and Lizzie's headstone did not turn out readable, but I do have a picture of it and my brother in law wrote down the dates (just in case the picture did not turn out) I am so glad he did this!

Who is your oldest documented ancestor? Not sure. It was in 1600's.
Comments:
My grandfather was Remer Young Touchton of Statenville, GA. I've traced my family back to Richard Touchstone of Cecil Co Maryland. I've seen that they came from Cork County Ireland, and I've seen that they came from Scotland. I'm not sure which it is.
I love your website. I'm thinking about starting my own genealogy website.

Who is your oldest documented ancestor? Bosworth
Comments:
My husband is Charles Edward Winslow. His father was Charles Bosworth Winslow. His grandfather was Fay Bosworth. Charles O. Winslow married Lizzie Vanpelt in Iowa. They had 1 child, Lida Winslow. Lida married Fay Bosworth. They had Charles Bosworth who was adopted by Charles O Winslow and his wife Lizzie. I know this is rather strange, but Lida must not have been able to care for her son, so Charles and Lizzie took him and raised him as their own. Hence, the name of Winslow instead of Bosworth The Winslow name stops with my son's son, Bryan Lee Winslow. born Aug 1,1987 in Portland,Oregon It is possible that their were more Winslow 's from Charles O. Winslow's brothers. If you have more info about the Winslow side of the family I would really like to know what you have. Truly, Annette Wislow

I am researching the same lines--Massey and Chambers. I noticed you had my grandmother's name as Chamblin and it was actually Chambers. Joab J. Massey married Cora Mabel Chambers. The children are also different than on the web site. They had eleven children--nine boys and two girls. My mother was one of the girls. I am in Oklahoma now and do not have access to the exact dates etc. I will be glad to mail them to you sometime during August as I would like to see the line updated. I go back to Thomas Massey (documented) and back to Viking heritage. I also noted that you have lines on Thorngurgh and others. Thanks so much for your work. The Chambers go back to David who was our immigrant ancestor. His son David was in the Revolutionary War and probably was at Valley Forge. He was a direct ancestor of mine also. Sounds like we have many ancestors in common.

Hi, I just want to make a correction concerning Joel Mason. He was married to Lavinia Hilton, not Melton. They were married in Warren County, IN 5 Aug 1841. Lavinia died in 1884 in Cowley County, Kansas. They had no children. Joel remarried to Martha Crawford. In 1900 Joel was 81 years old living in Harper County, Kansas with his two daughters, Jessie (14 yrs) and Hattie (11 yrs). Lavinia was my great-grandaunt. I just thought I'd let you know.

I just learned that I am related to Aaron Felts through his son John Flets and wife Mary Walker. Their child number 2, Matha, born 4 March 1792 married John Parks my 4th great grandfather. They moved from Wilkes Co., Tenn to Winston Co., Mississippi. That is where John Parks died in Nov 1847
His son James Monroe Parks was born 4 Aug 1818 in Tenn, and lived in Miss, then moved to Texas where he died in 1895. This is a great find, would like to know more about my family tree. Thaks Brad Gale

Happy New Year Tresa! I found your information for Robert Melton born 1870 to Columbus Melton on Ancestry.com which lead me here to your website. I have information for you on both Columbus and Robert. Robert did marry a Delitha Ellen Blocker on Jan 22, 1889 in Garland Co, Arkansas. They had 13 children. I'm still looking for the dates of birth on them but I do have at least their names.
Columbus's full name was Marion Columbus Melton. He was born in DeKalb Co, Georgia on June 16, 1848 and he died on April 14, 1930 in Hot Springs, Garland Co, Arkansas. He married twice 1) Savanah Ratliff. She was born on Dec 3, 1847 in Blount Co, Alabama and died Sept 29, 1875 in Cedar Glades, Garland Co, Arkansas.Savanah and Marion were married October 29, 1866 in Blount Co, Alabama. She's the mother to your Robert. Robert had 3 brothers and 1 sister by her.
Marion's second wife was Cynthia Virginia Noles. She was born Sept 25, 1859 in Guntersville, Marshall Co, Alabama and died Dec 28, 1943 in Hot Springs,Garland Co, Arkansas. They mmarried June 8, 1876 in Garland Co, Arkansas. Cynthia gave Marion another 11 children. She and Marion are buried in the Garland Cemetary, Garland Co, Alabama.
Cynthia is a distant cousin of mine because her Grandfather was brother to my GGGG Grandfather.
Hope this helps you out some. If you need more, let me know, I'm always willing to share what little info I have.

It is late at night, (for me) and my contacts are killing me. That's my excuse, other than stupidity, for not being able to find your email address. I am 50 years old and have had chronic pain from TMJ for 10 yrs. My best medicine is gardening, but due to an unusually cold autumn,
I have started on my husband's genealogy line. I must put Dutoy Roper to rest before I can start on the Shouse line.
My husband, Gary, recently had a 25 marker DNA test. I must tell you how proud I am of my son, John Nathan Roper, who was deafened by meningitis at 16 months of age. He is
in his 2nd yr at Rochester Institute of Technology and is on the Dean's list. We live in Southaven, MS,just south of Memphis, TN. Nathan reports an enormous snow in Rochester, NY. However, they have underground tunnels so they can go from building to building. Thanks for allowing me to "breathe." Lucy

I'm not really sure I have ancesters in your site. I began by looking for Beech's. It is my understanding that I was named after a relative named Vernetia Lee(surname). But have been unable to locate any so stumbled on Venecia Mitchell. It is certainly the right area: Picayune Ms. is where my father's family was. His name was Neville Eugene Beech and he had a brother named Luther Morgan Beech (named after some Morgans, I think). Please feel free to contact me if you have any information. I know virtually nothing about this side of my family - not even my Grandmother's maiden name or my Grandfather's given name. Shameful isn't it?

Who is your oldest documented ancestor? Joseph Hicks
Comments:
Joseph and Nancy are the parents of Adry Hicks. Adry and wife Nancy Jenkins went to Tennessee. Joseph and wife Nancy and several children went to Texas. Adry and wife Nancy in 1850 Morgan county, TN census. I do not know how they are related to ADREY Hicks of 1790 Fayette , Richmond county, North Carolina census.
Your website is wonderful. I found it by looking for other Hicks Head of Household listed in same county 1790: Charles, Howell, Robert, Thomas... hoping to find something to connect anyone.
Unfortunately, your Howell Hicks is too young, plus I don't even know if Adrey is related...
Please email me if Adry/Adrey Hicks rings any bells!
Sincerely, Cindy Hicks Curtis

Do you have any info on the parents of Mary Brown Weeks? She was b. 8 Apr 1840 in MD; d. 1927 in TX; m. Benjamin Clark Melton, 22 Sep 1853 in MO.

This is the info I have so far:

- When Mary was an infant, her family left her with (unknown) relatives in Indiana, while the family went down a river and were killed.
- In 1850 there were two families of Browns living in Jefferson Co. near Allen Melton, father of Benjamin Melton, and it is possible they are related since Mary carries the middle name of Brown.
- In 1860 there was a Sariah Weeks living with Benjamin and Mary Melton. Related to Mary?
- Family history says Mary’s parents were William Dewland and Anna Myra Wilson, but I have no supporting evidence of this.
- Anna Myra Wilson had a previous marriage, to a McCall, and had two children by him: James and Alice.

Who is your oldest documented ancestor? too numerous to list
Comments:
This is my family lines- I'm sure of it now. My line comes through Emaline (Emiline/ Emma) Taunton. I believe she was the daughter of Asa (Azor) and Louisiana Wealthie Hawthorn.
You show them with a daughter names Emily, the conveyance records show a E.A. Taunton, I found records that Wealthie remarried a R.H. Dosher in 1889. When Emiline's daughter, Leanna, died in 1940, the funeral was attended by her relatives with the last name Dosher. Leanna was born in 1883 and married John Alexander Wilks, born 1884. They lived in Catahoula and LaSalle Parishes in Louisiana.

I have pictures of Leanna in case your interested.

I know throughout our family lines, there is Indian heritage. My grandmother told me that Emiline Taunton was part Choctow, do you have the same info or documented cases of Indian Heritages in the family.

Please keep me on your mailing lists. I'm only doing this for my children- I'm not one looking for publishing, ect.
Just want to know where I came from.

Emiline was my g.g.grandmother.

From Jan Thompson Foreman (tx5250@aol.com)
Hello. Thanks again for your terrific website. It has really inspired me to keep working down lines! I'm working on family history and came across your Ancestry.com sites. My children are in the Ottie Z Foreman line. However, your site omits their grandfather, Lonnie Z Foreman,Sr., who passed away the early 60's in an Air Force plane crash in White Horse, Canada. Their dad is Lonnie Z Foreman, Jr. So,
if you'll look at the two sites below, you'll have some additional info if you want to update your family history info. The first url is the website
for veterans of Runnels County, TX. Lonnie Z Foreman, Sr and Bobby Wayne Foreman are listed. There is one correction to that also. Son Daniel Wayne Foreman should be corrected to David Wayne Foreman. Also, Rutland is the last name of Aunt Imogene, not Ruthland.

The second url is a list of family to the Kolb line. The Ottie Z Foreman line is listed with children and grandchildren.

I am working on my Melton line from Izard and Barry Co, Mo
I have Isobelle(Elizabeth) Melton b. 1818 TN raised by a step-father, foster father? I believe to be James Melton & Permillia Sooter. We may never locate her parents, believed to be Meltons, that died early? Her daughter Jane Martin married a John Melton and they resided in Rollo, Mo and other places in Mo and AR.

Laban Ferrell B. 7/11/1814 was my great great grandfather. He married Ailey Meekins Barlow B. 7/8/1820 on 5/21/1840 in NC-Nash County. My great grandfather was James Medicus Ferrell B. 9/4/1857. He married Crecia Ann Wiggs B. 7/4/1858. One of their daughters was my grandmother Eula Clara Ferrell B. 10/29/1891 in Leesville, NC. She married my grandfather, Eunice Wesley House on10/27/1917. I can't find the parents of Ailey Meekins Barlow. Many of the Ferrell's and their decendants including my Dad had dark complexions. Their is a Billy Barlow who was an Ute Indian in Oklahoma-Another source lists him as from the Choctaw(?) tribe. Could this be Ailey Meekins Barlow's father?? and the Indian connection??? I need to know asap for a family reunion. If you have any information, please e-mail me!!!

What a fantastic site! I can't believe that in 2 years of surfing the web for information on my Melton line I never found this treasure trove before now. Thanks to you I have completed my 5 generation chart with the name of my gg grandmother Adalisa Dorethy, wife of Leonard Melton, b. 1836 in IL. I also now have the names of my g grandmother Susan Melton's siblings. The only one I knew before was her brother Robert.

I am very happy to be able to fill in a few of your "unknowns". Susan Melton b. 1868 in Lewistown, IL married John Henry Clayberg in Fulton County, IL 02/04/1886 (IL Statewide Marriage Index 1763-1900). He died in 1910 and is buried in Section E, Cuba Cemetery, Cuba, IL (Cuba Cemetery Records). Their children were:
* Ray Clayberg, b. 1/28/1887; d. 11/09/1961
* Inez Clayberg (my grandmother) b. 06-14-1889; d. 02/02/1960.
* Lennie b. 6-14-1893; d. 10-05-1929
Harold b. 1-15-1904; d. 11-03-1979
Alva b. unknown; d. date unknown, Rockford, IL
Essie b. unknown; d. unknown (probably lived most of her life in Canton area).
*Hazel b. 04/22/1896, Bryant, IL; d. 08-25-1922, Dunfermline, IL
* Ruby b. 12/07/1906; d. 08-27-1926

* buried in Greenwood Cemetery, Canton, IL

I have further information - marriages, funeral home records and cemetery records if anyone is interested.

Susan Melton's second marriage was to Frank Tompkins 8-16-1913 in Peoria, IL. She died in 1938 and is buried as Susan Clayberg, Lot 393, 1872 Addition, Sec. E. Cuba Cemetery, Cuba, IL

I have a photograph of her in my possession and photos of some of her children Inez, Hazel, Alva, and Essie

Susan's brother Robert I. Melton was born 12-14-1863 near Macomb, IL. He married Laura Grace Ellis, 1898, Canton, IL. He died 05-31-1930 and is buried in Greenwood Cemetery, Canton, IL. His father is listed as Leonard Melton, b. MO. Two children and 2 stepchildren are listed by name. All of this information is from funeral home records (Murphy Sedgwick vol. 3, Canton, IL)

Using infomation from your website, I was able to find this infrom from IL Statewide Marriage Index 1763-1900:
Ida I. Melton m. Charles W. Kitchel, Fulton Co., IL 09/15/1886
Minnie Melton m. Ennett Tompkins, Fulton Co., IL 02/03/1891.

Comments:
My grandfather on my mother's side (Gladys Melton, b. 22 Dec, 1901, d 11 Dec. 1968) were Ephrian?Ethan (E.B.)Melton, bJan. 1859 in Al and Carrie Jane Doster b 3 Mar 1867, Columbus, Ga d 16 May, 1960, Shreveport, La. They were married 11 May, 1884 in Elmore Co. Al. They had 15 children, eventually moving to Arcadia, La. On some websites they have my grandmother, Carrie Jane Doster, listed as being married to Henry Dallas Melton, and list the same children. I don't know who this is but he was not my grandfather. I have been told but cannot prove that my great grandparents were William David Doster b Feb. 1841 in Georgia, d 21 Mar, 1922 Elmore Co. Al, and Margaret Wallace b May, 1839 in Georgia ; d 9 Aug, 1914 Elmore Co. Al. I cannot find either of my great grandparents listed on any website. If you have any information that would help me I would appreciate this. I have only been researching about 2 months and am really not sure what I am doing yet. Thank you, Linda Heath

My oldest documented ancestor is not why I am here. I was sent to you by Ron Johnson as I found Samuel Cobb and Sarah Sailor on his rootsweb site. I was contacted by a Cobb descendant who told me this may be the parent of my John Cobb, born 1814 in Henry County, Kentucky. I have his biography from 1881 Lake County, California, but he forgot to tell us his parents or his siblings names. Makes it hard to find a John Cobb in the stack of them out there. If this is in your database, please contact me.

John Cobb married Esther Deming in 1848 in Illinois and then they moved to California about 1850 - they were my gr gr grandparents.

Who is your oldest documented ancestor? Daniel Monroe Shows
Comments:
Daniel Monroe Shows, son of James Shows, son of Adam Shows, married Sarah Anne Terrell of Jasper County Mississippi. My maternal grandmother, Sarah "Sallie" Elizabeth Shows was their daughter. I am seeking documentation for Sarah Anne Terrells of Jasper County. She was born, according to Census in July 1830 in Jasper County. She married Daniel Monroe Shows about 1846 and they lived in Jones County where he was County Clerk. He died in Civil War in 1864/65 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama according to Sarah "Sallie Elizabeth Shows' family history letter (held by me) and according to his Civil War records. Sarah Anne Terrell eventually moved with their eight children back to Jasper County in the 1880 Census, and back to Jones County in the 1900 Census. She died in 1900 and is burried in the Jones Shows family Cemetery in Jones County alongside her daughter, Drusilla A. Shows. Sallie's Family History Letter states that "my mother's people was Terrells. They came here from South Calina. My gran father Terrell was one of the first white settlers in Jasper Co. Miss. The Indians were there." My best guess is that her parents were Joshua Terrell and Susanah Land Terrell of South Carolina, Georgia, and Jasper County, Mississippi. I would appreciate communication from anyone concerning Sarah Anne Terrell's parents.

From this point I am having trouble locating the father of Henry who married Pamelia Carroll, daughter of Aquila Carroll.

I think you have a great site. I descend from William H. Mecom, born in Catahoula Parish in 1837 and whose mother's maiden name was Hawthorn, but she died shortly after his birth, and the father Hardy Mecom (whose father was James Mecom (177?)-1814)and mother Patience Harris(177?-1848) - Patience later remarried and had a son Jesse Ward), married Mary Roark in 1838. Four of James/Patience Mecom offspring married 4 of William/Elizabeth Hawthorn offspring. Hardy's brother William married Bridget H. and sister Martha Mecom married Albert H. and sister Nancy Mecom married Wm.Haw. Jr. So there were a lot of double first cousins in the next generation. The Mecom's lived on Bushley Creek as did the Hawthorn's. This information can be verified in an act of partition dated 2/6/1849 in Catahoula Parish land files where the above parties divide the estate of Patience Ward. I've never found the first name of Hardy Mecom's first wife, the Hawthorn girl who is my ancestor, mother of William H. Mecom, who stayed in La., and died in 1902 in Caldwell Parish, near Columbia, La.

Granville descendant of Phenton/Fenton Gupton and Phebe Radford- Christian, Carlise and Ballard counties.

Who is your oldest documented ancestor? Hodges Council II born before 1668
Comments:
I am really glad to have found your website and think you have done an impressive amount of work. My branch connection to the Council tree as it appears on your website is as follows: My gggrandfather Rufus Council was a son of Joseph Wright COUNCIL and Elizabeth REDD. Joseph W. was a son of Dudley COUNCIL, who was a son of Nathan, etc., etc. There has been a COUNCIL family reunion in Herrin, IL. held on the last Sunday in June since 1950; the "last Sunday" having been chosen so as to fall the closest to my ggrandfather Thomas Jefferson COUNCIL's birthday (June 25, 1872).

You may be interested to know that there is a publication titled "A Genealogy of the Council Family in America" by Emmett E. Cockrum, published Carbondale, IL., 1985 (86 pages plus index; I have a bound copy). In the credits, he lists earlier works by Kinchin Bascom COUNCIL of Bladen Co., NC around 1900; and Judson COUNCILL of Clifton, VA. who published "Hodges COUNCILL of Virginia and Descendants" in Baltimore, 1941.

Would you be interested in exchanging data by GEDCOM files? I do not have nearly the data that you have collected, but could contribute beginning with Rufus. I would really enjoy hearing from you.

Comments:
Have you found anything more on your Mathew Brown? I ask because my Felts ancestor married Daniel Brown in NC and stopped in Wayne Co. IN in DEC 1829 to have a child on the way moving to MI. I suspect that they had relatives that they wintered with in IN, but I don't know who the relatives could be. Maybe the parents of Mathew? People moved with each other - so maybe since Mathew's wife was from NC, their families may have known each other back in NC, with the Browns moving to IN before the Smiths. It could also be possible that Mathew's father was a brother of my Daniel. I have found that at least two of Daniel's siblings married into the Messick family of Surry Co. NC. I have not been able to track down all of Daniel's brothers.

After looking at your Mathis page, I wanted to add this information. The daughter of the OTHER Aaron Felts I wrote of in the guestbook entry married Ancel Mathis - a relative of these Mathis's. OUR Aaron Felts witnessed a deed between a John and Step (Stephen) Matthews in Wilkes Co. NC. I was wondering if John and Step could really have been Mathis family (Matthews just a misspelling in land records). It is also interesting that people that knew the OTHER Aaron Felts also knew a Step (Stephen) Mathis - a RW soldier of NC.

The more I research the Felts the more I am convinced that there are MANY more relatives that we haven't connected to Aaron yet - such as another Aaron Felts that was in the RW from NC. I found documentation of the other Aaron, but think he could have been a nephew of OUR Aaron.

I noticed one error--Mary Jane Melton, daughter of William Dority Melton, was my great gramma. She died, not in 1922,
but July 13, 1944, in Craig, Colorado.
Maxine Updike one of her grandaughters, tells the story that Mary Jane got to see Abraham Lincoln when she was a little child.
She recalls that the family did not think much of him, as he had just freed their slaves and turned their lives upside down.

His grave is in the old section to the right.*We have photos to share.We noticed many other Tauntons buried here also.

Michelle Taunton was kind enough to share her Taunton genealogy with us and I am attempting to update our link and hope to provide the rest of the story when complete.
