Bio and Links
Bio Photo At the age of 39, I fell into the Ancestry addiction. I wanted to know the roots of my family to pass down to my children so they can pass it down to the future generations to come.

My roots are: Beal, Burke, Garner, & Hale of Guilford/Chatham County, North Carolina. Bailey's of Lancaster, South Carolina. Beals and Marshall of Annapolis/Inglisville, Nova Scotia, Canada. Bowen, Butts of Warren/Providence/barrington Rhode Island. Lawson, Mallett, Goins, Minor, Burton, trent and Murrell of Hawkins/Hancock County, Tennessee. Elder and Meyers(myers) of Virginia. Crafton, White and Martin of Arkansas.

Digging up all this information on my family has been very rewarding to me. It feels great finding out the stories/information and talking about them with my father.
I am a spouse of a soldier in the U.S. Army. We move around often but I do miss the sights of the east coast and my family.
I am hoping through this website, I can meet other people in my family lines.

Hi Kathryn...Francis is my 2nd cousin. I'm sorry, but I don't know where he's buried, but I assume somewhere in Hancock, TN. As you know his son Francis Jr is buried in the Burdine-Bowlin cemetery in Camelot, Hawkins, TN. If I ever come across something I'll let you know!

Effie McIntosh Beal
Hi- thanks for the additional information on the other Effie Beal. I have found her burial location and have linked her with Thomas. She lived to age 95 and never remarried.

Thomas E Beal
Hi- updating and linking people buried in Proximity. I have a Thomas E Beal 1870- 1937 whose death certificate says he was married to Effie Beal. Effie Beal's memorial says she was married to J Beal. Do you know which is which?

Martin Crafton
Oh, meant to ask about a Martin Crafton that I see only in the 1910 census living on the other side of Gerome's parents household. Don't see him on the 1900 census so was wondering if he is a brother or what. Plus can't find Gerome in 1920 but do see a Martin Crafton in Dickens county Texas where Gerome later shows up in the 1930 census I think.

RE: G T Crafton
You're welcome. By the way, it's White county that I'm researching in AR concerning my Brock's most likely as no other branch traces to there except for a couple of brothers-in-law (Tom and Woodrow Jacobs, teachers) that moved to AR with them for awhile around Wilson and Tyronza) according to stories. It must have been between census years though.

Do you have a family tree on I contacted someone Patagay1234 that has the Crafton and extended families on their Groceman family tree. They have in 1920 I think Luna's sister living in "Big Springs/Barren" Fork in Izard county AR but the census record just says Big Springs and they aren't that close are they?

My grandfather, John who was orphaned when Sam died around 1915 went to live with the Bruce Ball family who in 1920 was in Big Springs and later Batesville. Evidently he was a used car salesman around there in the 1950's (Bruce that is) My grandfather moved around a lot and lived in Sidney too as well as Beebee and Searcy too. My grandfather was a self-taught Barber and opened a shop somewhere probably in the 1920's.

He talked about the Water Carnival and boat races that they had on the White River and how celebrities like Bing Crosby would show up back in the 1930's.

Oh, almost forgot I do have some Pollard relatives around Dewitt/Suttgart too.

G.T. Crafton record
Ms. Henry,

Greetings fellow researcher! This is a message to inform you that my great grandfather had dealings with a G T Crafton who I believe to be this person:

Memorial# 42111511

My father is in possession of an IOU note which states my great grandfather, Samuel Riley (Sam) Brock borrowed $250 from a "G T Crafton" in Barren Fork (now Mt Pleasant) in Izard county Arkansas in September of 1913. This is, I imagine, not long after he moved with his two children from Crockett county TN following the death of his wife, Lena, sometime between 1910 and 1913.

The story goes that they crossed the Mississippi by ferry from Dyer county TN and once settled in Arkansas Sam was asked how much cotton he expected to harvest and when he replied was told he might as well go back to Tennessee (meaning they didn't think he would come close). Evidently, he harvested even more than predicted to the amazement of all.

He died sometime around 1915 though I have been unable to find a death certificate for him.

Anyway, just thought you might be interested in this genealogical tidbit. Have been meaning to look up Mr. Crafton for some time and am glad I finally did.

RE: correction of previous message
I can't correct the date of birth for Richard Burke. Because I transferred him over to you, you'll have to do that. Cheers.
