Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Brian B. Shemwell I am a researcher from Boise, Idaho. I have been doing my family genealogy since Sept. 2008. Any photo that I have added is not to be taken without my permission. This is because some of them are not my photos, and I have permission from others to put them here and only here.
I do also go to local antique shops and find photo's with names of the people in the photo, I do try my hardest to locate where the photo belongs and find their home. If you come across a photo that I have posted on a memorial and I have no relation, please know I am looking for a home for photo and please message me.

Please visit the memorials of the people that mean most to me.

Oral Rex Smith
Oral's father is correct, however his mother was Adelaide (Addie) Thebo Smith. Will and Addie have a connected headstone at Glenn Rest also. Not sure who you have as his mother. Thanks for all of your long and hard work- it is so helpful to many! Christie

RE: J. Pascal Watson
Thanks for that, Brian! So if she was a Hewitt when she married Ernest, there must have been a marriage in between. Wow.....

RE: J. Pascal Watson
Ola Mae is the daughter of Annie Mae Payne and Pascal Watson. Annie Mae is the daughter of George Lafayette Payne and Chanie Wellborn. Chanie is the daughter of James Larkin Wellborn and America Jane Blackburn. America Jane is my third Great Aunt, and the daughter of Edmond Leroy Blackburn, Jr., and Martha Phillips.

Annie Mae Payne buried three husbands - Mont Wellborn, J Pascal Watson, and Ernest Rudolph Haas.

Ola Mae married a Greene, but I don't know his first name, and I don't have ancestry. I haven't found anything on familysearch or rootsweb for this Greene. Sandra may know.

RE: J. Pascal Watson
Thanks for that info, Brian. I bet the death certificate for Ola Mae was misread. I can see where Jean and Leon could look alike especially if the copy or handwriting is bad. If it is Jean, it is probably spelled Gene. But back in those days, names were spelled exactly like they sounded, so maybe not.
