HI AGAIN
DEAR SHERRY: Hi Sherry! My name is Roxane Evelyn Copeland (Morris at birth) My real father Robert Evans Morris lives in Evergreen, Al. I was wondering are you related to The Barfield's or is your husband related to them? I have been working on them alot lately and I remember that you had a picture of Sarah Elizabeth Barfield. Do you have a picture of her twin brother Charles Aquilla Barfield? I am also trying to find their father James Barfield because it seems their Mom and him dropped off the face of the earth, I know they were not married. If you happen to have any information on the Barfield's I would greatly appreciate any help.
Also my real father is Robert or Bob Evans Morris and his second wife is Betty Criswell. My father's Dad was Carl Manning Morris and his first wife was my Grandma Mary Mrytle Ray(Barfield side) , his second wife was Margaret Fleming. They both lived and died in Dothan, Al. I am trying to find my Grandpa Carl's father and mother, my great grandparents. If you can help me I would greatly appreciate any help at all. With many blessings for a New Year, Roxane Copeland (Morris)

HELLO
DEAR SHERRY: WE HAVE SPOKEN AND WRITTEN TO EACH OTHER BEFORE. I AM STILL LOOKING FOR MY GREAT GRANDPARENTS AND GREAT GREAT GRANDPARENTS AND WAS WONDERING IF YOU MIGHT HAVE INFORMATION ON THEM OR COULD GET INFORMATION ON THEM. IT WOULD BE SO DEEPLY APPRECIATED. MY FATHER IS ROBERT EVANS MORRIS FROM EVERGREEN, ALABAMA AND HIS 1ST WIFE WAS MY MOM PATRICIA ANN MCMINN, AFTER I WAS BORN ROXANE EVELYN COPELAND NOW BUT MORRIS THEN ON 5-16-1959. MY PARENTS MET EACH OTHER IN ROME, NEW YORK BECAUSE HE WAS STATIONED AT GRIFFIS AIR FORCE BASE IN ROME, NEW YORK. IN 1958 THEY WERE MARRIED AND THE FOLLOWING YEAR I WAS BORN, MY FATHER HAD TO LEAVE WHEN I WAS AROUND A YEAR OLD TO HIS DUTY IN HAMBURG, GERMANY. WELL, MY PARENTS WERE NOT GETTING ALONG AT THAT TIME, BUT I DIDN'T KNOW UNTIL RECENTLY WHEN ONE OF MY LONG LOST UNCLE'S TOLD ME THAT MY REAL DAD ROBERT HAD ABUSED MY MOM AND ME. MY GRANDMA CATHERINE MCMINN WHICH WAS MOM'S MOTHER, GOT HELP FROM THE RED CROSS AND HAD MY MOM AND I FLOW BACK TO NEW YORK. IN THE MEANTIME , MY REAL DAD FOUND ANOTHER LADY WHEN STATIONED IN GEORGIA AND HER NAME WAS BETTY CRISWELL, WHICH AFTER THE DIVORCE FROM MY MOM AND HIM, THEY MARRIED. THERE MARRIAGE WAS ILLEGAL BECAUSE THEY WERE SUPPOSE TO WAIT 90 DAYS BEFORE THEY COULD REMARRIED IN THE STATE OF ALABAMA. I AM NOT WORRIED ABOUT THAT PART ANYMORE BECAUSE BOTH MY MOM AND STEPDAD ARE GONE NOW, I KNOW MY GRANDPA CARL MANNING MORRIS AND HIS 1ST WIFE MY GRANDMA BETTY RAY. THEY HAD THREE CHILDREN, MY FATHER ROBERT E. MORRIS AND HIS TWIN SISTER BETTY MORRIS AND ONE YOUNGER SIBLING WAS JOSEPH MORRIS. BOTH MY GRANDPARENTS ARE DEAD AND BOTH OF THEM REMARRIED LATER IN THEIR OWN LIVES. MY GRANDPA CARL MORRIS MARRIED MARGARET FLEMING OF DOTHAN, ALABAMA AND BOTH ARE BURIED IN DOTHAN , ALABAMA. MY GRANDMA HAD REMARRIED TO MIKE TRAHAN AND THEY ARE BOTH IN THE WELCOME CEM IN EVERGREEN, ALABAMA. I AM TRYING TO FIND MY GREAT GRANDPARENTS AND GREAT GREAT GRANDPARENTS ON THE MORRIS SIDE ONLY. I HAVE ALL THE INFORMATION ON THE RAY FAMILY SIDE. I WOULD LOVE TO FINISH THIS ANCESTRY ON THE MORRIS'S AND RAY'S SO I CAN MAKE IT INTO A BOOK FOR THE IMMEDIATE FAMILY AND MAYBE EVEN ADD TO A BOOK.

I DO KNOW THAT THE MORRIS'S CAME FROM OTTAWA ALABAMA EITHER IN THE 1930'S OR 1940'S. IT SHOWS THEM IN A CENSUS, BUT SHOWS NO PARENTS FOR CARL MANNING MORRIS, OR GRANDPARENTS. IF I COULD AT LEAST GET THIS INFORMATION IT WOULD BE GREAT AND THE REST WOULD BE EASY TO FIND. PLEASE HELP ME IF YOU CAN, I SEE THAT YOU SHOW UP IN MANY ITEMS AND JUST WANT TO KNOW MY FAMILY.
WITH BLESSINGS OF THANKS, ROXANE COPELAND

RE: French Cemetery
There were others buried there but the head markers which were made of wood are all gone. I was shown where at one time some wooden crosses were .... from the land owners. I didn't get their names but I will find out who they are and let you know so you can in contact with them if you'd like. They also told me of the lady you mention in your information was still alive and lives right up the road from them and the French Cemetery. They told me their are some Confederate Soldiers buried there also from what they've been told. That might be another area you could check into. I'll try to find out more information, so if I find something I'll let you know. This is so interesting to me and my husband and if you need any other pictures just let me know.

Glad to help!

RE: taking pictures of the French Cemetery
Just wanted you to know I'll be heading back up to my home in Chipley, Florida tomorrow morning. So maybe by this coming weekend I'll have pictures for you. I can't wait to see the cemetery.I also have Native American blood so this grave site will be a great pleasure in photographing.

taking pictures of the French Cemetery
I just volunteered to take pictures for you of Caroline Frances Rudd Kittrell at the French Cemetery. Please give me some time to get back home from South Florida and I'll get right on this for you. Just don't give up on me putting these pictures on Findagrave for you. I will take all the pictures from this cemetery and put them all on here as many as I can read.

I'd hate this cemetery not be on recognized in the future.

Just wanted to send this note to let you know I will be taking these picture, it would be my pleasure.

I'll be home next week,

RE: request for henrie French
You are welcome. My mother's family lives in Holmes county and my mother has a home down there but she lives up here in South Carolina. So once or twice a year we go see family and take care of what needs to be done to her home. Usually between Spring and fall. Since I now have more information, I will continue to look. I am working on taking pictures of all the headstones. We did not have as much time as we usually do to look. I at least try to find all the request. My sister helps as well. I am related to 90% of the people buried there. I did ask my cousin who has the records for everyone buried there if he might know where Henrie's grave would be and he said if he had his book with him he could have told me. So, next trip I will try again.

request for henrie French
I sherry I just got back from Westville florida, I go down there a couple of times a year. My sister and I looked over the campground cemetery and could not find this grave. There are numerous graves that are unmarked or unable to read the headstones. Was she married if so do you have a spouse's name. I asked my cousins while there if they knew where she was buried. next time I go down there I will check again. I have not given up yet.

I took the other one off, what a handsome young man he was. When it cools off a bit I'll go out to see if a headstone has been placed and get a photo for you.
