Hi Tonya,

Thank you so much for managing Lydia's site. I am a Whitehead descendant (Lydia would be my great great grandmother on my fathers side). I can provide add'l to family you may have contact info for.

Where's William? He made the 1900 CO census with the family but disappears.

RE: John K. Sallee

Still curious,

RE: John K. Sallee
Diama A. and Levi were boarders in hoh David Baucom, in the 1880 MO Greene Co census for Pond Creek, p144a [HeritageQuest pg nums]. It has parents born TN and AR, for each, so I thought they were most likely sister and brother, though there is the possibility it was her first marriage.
Still curious,

RE: Brittain
Dear Tonya,
Diamey's name was confusing, but I finally settled on: Diama (Dianey) Angeline Sallie, Diamey Britain. She married James Alexander Britain 18 Nov 1880 (place unresearched). James was a son of George W Britain, of MO Greene Co local fame. He and Diamey had 6 children. Diama A. was b.29 Dec 1860 AR Pulaski Co, Little Rock; d.20 Dec 1939 MO Barry Co, Monett. [MO d.c. #42674; "Peddicord Ltrs."]

Now for your question: I have John Sallie (Salee) as father (unresearched). A William Sallie age 52, b.MO, was listed in hoh James A. Britain [MO Greene Co, N. Campbell, p.67b; HeritageQuest pg nums]. That last sentence you most likely have. The name John Sallie was from the "Peddicord Ltrs."

People of the name Sallee bought and sold land in MO Greene Co, between 1848 and 1876 [MO Greene Co deeds]. There are no marriages, with spelling variations, in Woodruff's Greene Co marriage books. Some of the next generation married in MO Christian Co.

James Alexander Britain used the spelling variation Brittain, pretty much his whole life.

So, no?
Curious, so pls let me in on what you find?

RE: Lockhart/Sallee
I don't have much of anything in my trees on the Lockhart line as it is just a collateral line. I have taken a lot of pictures of Long Point, near Niantic, and a number of the Lockharts are buried there. There were some Sallees in the Decatur area, but I haven't studied or searched for them.

Have you tried or familysearch?

Aranaus Sallee
Tonya, I do have a John Kalvin Sallee listed as a brother to Aranaus Sallee. And I also saw the Mo. Death Cert. listing Johns parents as Jacob and Elizabeth(Lockhart). Not sure where that's coming from. If you would like to correspond, email me at

Are you related thru John Kalvin?

Emaline Bell
Hi Tonya,
Thanks for the information, which I knew. I didn't realize that I had never finished her memorial. I have added a little more to her bio.

Jane Bell & her children who went by the last name of Bell instead of Owens has definitely has caused some confusion with the Bell line of Emaline's husband, John Bell. John's father was Henry Bell, my gg-uncle.

No, I have not run across any materials referencing him as Andrew. I have quite a few references on him, all very consistent in his name. If you have an email address I can email you all my research notes!

RE: Trying to find cemetery
Hello Tonya,

I'm sorry, but I don't. I've faced this dilemma many times & know how very frustrating it can be. Trying different name combinations in Google might give you a clue.

Will let you know if I find something.
