FINDAGRAVE SELAH MARKHAM
DANILE DEACON MARKHAM IS A GOOD ANCESTOR TO START FROM. MOST MARKHAM'S SEEM TO BE RELATED TO HIM. YES, I BELIEVE OUR LINES DO CROSS. YOUR LINE I THINK GOES SOMETHING LIKE
DANIEL DEACON MARKHAM & ELIZABETH WHITMORE
JAMES MARKHAM & ELIZABETH LOCKE
WILLIAM MARKHAM & ESTOR ARNOLD THIS IS WHERE OUR LINES SPLIT
YOUR LINE IS THE SON JAMES MARKHAM & JANE STERLING AND HIS BROTHER, WILLIAM MARKHAM WHO MARRIED ESTER ARNOLD IS MY DIRECT LINE.

DOES THAT MAKE SENSE?

I DID A GOOGLE SEARCH FOR SELAH MARKHAM AND FOUND SOME ON HIM. WHAT I FOUND IS KINDA BROKEN UP WITH SOURCES INBETWEEN BUT YOU COULD PUT SOMTHING TOGETHER WITH WHAT IS HERE.HERE IS SOME OF WHAT I FOUND:

Selah Markham, blacksmith and farmer, born in New York April 9, 1813; came to Clearwater, this county, in 1854, opening the first farm and building the first house there.

RE: I can post
Yes, They have a book under a canopy so you can look up all the family members and find the grave. He wasn't listed there. I will be going thru Mountain Home again in a couple of weeks and can stop to take another look. The sexton often drives thru on weekends. Maybe he can help. Mtn. Home is a little over 100 miles from here so if you are patient (darn near impossible thing for me!) I promise to try again.

RE: I can post
Interesting. I'm getting the messages from FindAGrave just fine but when I try to open from you directly, nothing will come up. Very odd. Anyway, I've deleted the duplicated memorial. If there was something more, perhaps you could post here?

Transfers made. The person who posted the other
Harkeys and did it without a name is rather
irritating I believe. No way to contact them.
Good Luck TJ

RE: findagrave Lucille Markham
I'm not sure if I am related unless we are connected further back.

This is what I was able to find so far on Percy Edward Markham born 7 Sep 1892. His parents are: George Lafayette Markham and Margarette Elizabeth Ferguson Markham. Is that correct? When are their birth and death dates and where? If I can go back far enough on Percy we might be related. Can you help me figure out his ancestry?

Yes, I would love any more info you have on Lucille. I was able to locate her parents, I think. Are they Oscar Jackson Maddox and Olive Alberta Garner Maddox? (I have her parents dates)

Thank you Brandie for the corrections and updates on Lucille. I was so happy to hear from you. I may be distantly related but would like to know more about Lucille. Who is her husband and is her husband an ancestor of Stephen Markham? Would you add more to her memorial if I transferred to you?
