RE: Lilia Carriker
Danna, thanks for your message and confirmation. After I sent my message to you I was able to piece some of this information together. IT threw me off at first because Lilia's married name Johnson was put into F.a.G. as if it were her maiden name. I didn't find Henry Johnson, though I believe he was born in LA, but I believe I found their son Joseph Henry Johnson ( I also found information on Lilia's brother Joseph March England and some of his family. I believe her father Joseph Fletcher England was married to two different women, Mary and then Malinda who is Lilia & Joseph March's mother. It can sometimes be tricky in some of these areas especially the western more rural areas because the records can be more scarce. I wasn't able to find Clarence listed anywhere, but did find Carroll, "Tobe" & "Pink". In 1900 she claimed to have had a total of 10 children with 8 living still. She then had Eber Carriker 3 years later. She married James W. Carriker very shortly after Carroll passed away. She had children with all three husbands. She had at least 4 children with James: Tony (only found in 1900 census and some of that info may have been recorded incorrectly), Willie Dock, Dollie Ola and Eber and she passed away the same year as Eber. James went on to live another 18 years after her. It's been interesting trying to piece this together with the information that is available.

I would LOVE to locate info for Ruby's father, Charles M Roberson. I know he died in the early 1930s and Guss remarried. Please remember me if you find anything on him. My GG Grandmother, Elizabeth Perkins is buried in McDonald Cem in Lamar Co and I would love to find more of her family.

William Smith
Danna, Picture is Henry Hudson Ware not William Smith.
"Barshee" came from old info which has been proven incorrect. Middle name not known. Sister Nell just won't turn loose of the name because it is interesting story.

William Barshee Smith
Hello Dana,
I am a cousin of William and have more info on him.Can you transfer him to my care if you can? If you can't I will give you info on his 6 kids and their wives. Also, where did you get the info? I am always interested in family history. I am working on the Hollingsworth family, and William was on one of the branches.Thanks and God bless you!

Hi...I am related to the Tibbs line and came across the above on Find A Grave.

I have not been able to connect her to my line as I do not know who Mary Ann Vickers, her mother, is daughter of.

Can you give me further information?

Thanks for posting the wonderful photos.

I believe someone else has picked up the photo and put it in the wrong place on Ancestry.

Marriage Date
Hi Dana,

According to the 1900 Federal Census, Margaret and "Lum" were married in 1899.

Can you share how you determined the 1919 marriage date?

RE: Daniel Smyers
I have a photo of Daniel Edward, my Daniel's uncle, that I obtained from my cuz in Missouri, Neva Nadine Smyer Bryant Salyer, but to my knowledge none of Daniel Franaklin's descendants have a photo of him. We'd love to have one if you do!

Can't find at the moment the pic we have of Daniel Edward, Sr.

We do have a photo of Melvina Matilda Brandon (1829 - 1906), the wife of DFS. Can see it here if interested:



Added by WNS on May 20, 2011 6:32 PM

Hi Danna,
We are not related. My research is the McDonald Family, one of whom married an Overbey, however in genealogy, one name seems to lead to another, so at present I am doing the Overbeys. I am presently trying to get links done now on Find A Grave, and looking on other sites for obits and burials. Thanks to you I am finding a lot of the burials for the Overbeys.
If you would like any of the info that I have my e-mail is
Ty for adding the links, I think that they are important to the researchers that come after us

Levi Cookson Cemetery
I'm not sure if you are the person to report to, but
the Levi Cookson cemetery is not the same as the Cookson Cemetery. The map shows the location of the Cookson or Cookson-Proctor Cemetery, on Cookson Bend Road.

Levi Cookson Cemetery, as shown in the photos, is southwest of Keys on Indian Road, approx. 1.3 miles past the turn off for Petit Bay.
