Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired teacher; loves researching family trees. I have researched and published several of my family lines just for relatives, not commercially. I am always looking for pictures of family members to add to their biographies. My Grandmother had a suitcase of old pictures, some old letters and many stories which got me interested in ancestors.

Photo Request for Duran NM Cemetery
I'm sorry I looked for your request and did not locate. We were there today, just travelling through, a large part of the cemetery is very unkept and to be truthful, I was afraid of rattlesnakes, so we just did not go into the areas that had to be reached far from the little lane. So many of the anglo grave stones were scattered, toppled, etc., while the graves on the Catholic side, mainly hispanic were in better condition.

COX Family Photo at Hico, Texas
Hi Phyllis,

I now live in West Linn, OR but I am going back Texas to visit family. Do you know who I can visit to take a higher resolution photo of the Cox family group picture at Hico, Texas. By the way I have admired your level of detail with the Cox family for years. I descend down through a brother of Jesse C. Cox, namely John E. Cox, then Nathan Eli Cox, then my great-grandmother Sallie Theresa Cox Renfroe. You can respond vis my e-mail

RE: Martha Darnell
Whatever he called himself is the correct spelling. In my family we have Heavenhill or Havenhill. In my cemetery we have a man, last name Baylard, whose father and six brothers all spell their name Bailard.

RE: Laura Jennings and James Bowen
I now have pic's of the layout of Redman Cem near DeQueen AR as well as pic's of the head stone of Elick and Maggie Spicer, and one son, Arthur. Do you want them? How do I send them to you, if you do?

Laura Jennings Bowen
Please refer to earlier msg's re Magaret (Maggie) Hannah Bowen Spicer, daughter of Laura and Jim Bowen. Maggie Hannah and Elick Spicer are buried in Redman Cemetery, DeQueen Ar. Do not know the plot numbers. I'm told they are off the West Entrance road, on the 1st left off that road, "not too far down the road." If I can get someone there to photograph the headstones and forward them to me/you, I'll do it in the next week or two. I live approx. 100 miles from there, and no longer have any living relatives there.

Laura Jennings and James Bowen
Where did the picture on this site of the Bowens come from? Since I have the same picture, I am curious?

RE: Laura Jennings Bowen
Thank you very much. Yes, Margaret Hannah Bowen Spicer is my great grandmother through her daughter Rhoda Spicer Humphrey, wife of Benjamin Humphrey, and my mother, Mabel Lurene Humphrey Blakney. Wow! Thanks. My great-great grandmother Bowen.

In 1774 a Spicer family was massacred by the Seneca or Mingo Indians. The 12 year old daughter and 9 year old son Elizabeth and William were carried off. Elizabeth was released approx. 18 mos. later. William hid and stayed with the tribe for the rest of his life so far as I know. Elizabeth Spicer Daughtery married William Bowen after her 1st husband died. Then, approx. 1 generation later, we find a Bowen (Margaret Hannah) marrying a Spicer (Eleck) fyi. We have it as Elec w/o the "k."

We were always told Eleck was "half Indian." So, now I'm left wondering if Eleck was descended from William Spicer thru one of his Indian wives....hmmm? I've got some searching to do.

FYI, the Eleck Spicers had a passel of kids. Rhoda, Dink, John, Arthur, and I think a couple more. There was, and may still be Bowens living in the DeQueen Ark area.

Laura Jennings Bowen
I have the very same picture as shown for Ms. Bowen. It came to me from my great grandmother, who was a Bowen (I cannot remember her 1st name)married to Elec Spicer. She died in mid 1950's in her 80's in DeQueen, Ark. I am said to resemble James Bowen. I have no idea what relation James P. and Laura Jennings Bowen were to my great grandmother. I did not see a child's name that was that of my great grandmother...I would have recognized it. Any info you have would be appreciated.
