RE: Hansel Terry Godard
Terry suffered with diabetis, and it affected his legs and feet very badly. He had a lot of pain, and I remember that he spent a lot of time going for treatments at a pain clinic in Dallas. They could not heal the bad places on his legs, which caused a lot of pain and suffering. We talked on the phone during this time quite a lot, and then I didn't hear from him for a while.
A few weeks after that, he called one day from the Veteran's hospital and said that he had to have both legs amputated. I suppose they were not allowed to use the phone very much, because I didn't hear from him any more. I was supposing that he would be going back home to live in a wheelchair.
One day in March, 1999, I received a call from a man telling me that Terry had passed away a couple of weeks ago. I was so shocked I didn't even think to ask his name, but I am supposing it was his friend, James. I heard no more after that.

Terry lived in Richardson, a suburb of Dallas, but worked in Dallas at the Main Post Office until he retired from there. He owned a nice home in Richardson, and spent most of his time writing songs, some of which were pretty good. I remember he would send copies to singers in hopes of them recording some of them.
He had a lot of nice musical instruments in his home, and a lot of expensive equipment. One of his close friends, James Stephens, wrote some of the songs with him. James was probably his best friend, and I believe they worked together at the Post Office.
I don't know for sure, but I am supposing that James was his beneficiary, and also took care of his funeral arrangements, etc. He would be the most likely person.

I saw the name Laura Belle on the cemetery list. I wondered how she was connected. So, is she Ebb's mother?

Also, did you mention that Laura Louise committed suicide? Did she ever marry? If so, what was her married name?

I really do enjoy unraveling these stories of families and their connections. It has been a hobby of mine now for about 15 years.

Was Terry the surname of Willie Terry Hobbs, since Hobbs was her first marriage?

RE: Hansel Terry Godard
Terry did marry, but the marriages did not last. The first, according to him, was a beautiful lady named Mary. She suffered from alcoholism, so much so that the marriage could not survive. I think he helped her all he could, even after their parting. The next lady was one who had three teenagers and it seems that she was looking for a home and father for them. I knew him during that time, and seems he was put through a lot of misery, and finally had to end it for peace of mind. He never married again after that.

I did not know anything about his family, and I can see now why he chose not to talk about them. Sometimes these kinds of sufferings can serve to bring us closer to God, which may have been the reason he was such a devoted Christian. I am thankful he was. He was a very kind person.

Thank you for sharing these stories.

RE: Hansel Terry Godard
I wish I knew more about Terry's family. I met Terry through work and we became friends. He was a very upright respectable Christian man, and a real old fashioned southern gentleman, and I admired him for his Christian values.
I knew only that he was born and grew up in Georgia. I did not hear him speak of his family. He was a quiet man, a war veteran, and lived alone. He had few friends, but the few he had were also of high moral character.
I'm glad to have known him, and wish I could have written more in his honor.

Thanks for writing, and I hope you can find what you are seeking about your family.

RE: Massey family connection
Hey Karen. Although I don't show your ancestor's names in my line he and my Masseys could be related. My line is believed to come through William Massey [1715-1790] who married Jude or Judah last name unknown. He was living in Wake County, NC by 1772 and deeded land in Wake County to his son Pettipool in 1782. William's son Noel [Nowal] Massey is my 4th great-grandfather. Noel and his wife Lucinda Freeman lived in South Carolina for a while which is where my 3th great-grandfather Simon Massey was born. After his marriage, Simon moved to Georgia with his family. Simon was James Efford Massey's Dad. Here's a link to William's page in my ancestry.com tree http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/24299398/person/1501976075 I still have a lot of research to do on the early Masseys so there are MANY gaps! Cheers, Sue

RE: Glazener genealogy
Hi Karen,

Yes, I am interested in the genealogy info you have on the Glazener family. I have found a lot of info on the Compton Extended Family posted on Rootsweb. There are a few other lines on Rootsweb also. I will be happy to share what I have that you may not as well. I look forward to comparing notes.

Blessings,
Tammy

NC Glazeners
Hi Karen,

Thankyou for all the hard work you have put into researching this line of the Glazeners. I recently found out my husband's family line traces back to George Isaac Glazener through his ggrandmother Elmina Glazener Johnson. I left flowers on his memorial with the line. Another of Abraham's children, George E. Glazener is buried in the Glazener Cemetery in Transylvania County, NC. The memorial # is 14446455. I will leave a message for the owner of that memorial and ask them to link to Abraham's memorial. Thanks again. Tammy Knowles Johnson

Karen, I went to this cemetery in Arlington and there is a third grave next to them. I will have to go back because I can't locate the picture but I couldn't find any info on the name on the third headstone.

RE: Odom/Jackson connection
I just went and looked at the Nix Cemetery and there are 10 burials there; but none are Jacksons. They are Abraham Odom, some Nix family, and some Wood family.

RE: Odom/Jackson connection
Helen, I have disappointing news for you. My Aunt Kathryn Augusta Pacetty of Columbus, Muscogee county, Ga., married Herbert Cleveland Odom, Jr. of same city. Therefore, I have no direct relationship down the Odom line. I was doing my research there for the benefit of my first cousin, Barbara Odom Denamur Marrapodi of Columbus, and still residing there. I knew nothing of an Odom cemetery in a field. Could you share the whereabouts of this cemetery. I'm sure that Barbara and her husband would love to drive out and see it. Most Odoms we know about are burried in a large plot in Linwood Historic cemetery in Columubs, except for Abraham Odom 1784-1860, who is burried in a group behind a now standing shopping center. It is called the Nix cemetery because about 18 of the burials are of the Nix familyl; however, Abraham Odom was buried there alone for about 40 years before any other people were interred. This burial site may be the very site to which you refer. At one time it was a rural farming area but now, alas, the shopping center buildings are built right up next to Abraham Odom's grave. I would enjoy hearing more about this from you!
Sincerely, Laurence Hotard
