Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for over 40 years now. Hit and miss when children young, but more intense when kids up and gone. With the addition of the internet, it has opened up a new world of research. Findagrave is wonderful as it lets me visit areas I am not able to go and opens many doors to more cousins with similar interest.

Proud to be a descendant of Austin's Old 300 members Martin Allen & William Pryor. Reagor family was early settler of Ellis County and the Frost in Garland. My West family came from Louisana and settled in Jefferson, then Gonzales County.My Johnston family came to the Republic of Texas in 1840. My Huddleston and Martin waited to after the War Between the States to come to Texas. Wanting a new beginning they settled in Collin County.

RE: Miller Family
Thank you so much. I hope to be able to see that cemetery in South Carolina one day. I was in the area about a year and a half ago but didn't know about all the Millers and Carothers at the time. Insert sad face here.

Are you a DRT? I just joined about a year ago.

Thanks again.

Anna Adkins
Betty, Please Correct the dates for and name for Anna Adkins 36705705. The name on the stone has Amanda Adkins and she died 14 Dec 1823 at age 14. This has been verified with Sam Matthews General manager of Ebenezer Cemetery.. He states the directory has it incorrect. Amanda did also go by Anna as a nick name. She is the daughter of Hartwell and Charity (Sansing) Adkins. Her father Hartwell and 2 brothers Bennett and Ulysses are also buried in Ebenezer Cemetery. Her mother is buried in Sardis Cemetery in Fayette County, Tennessee.

Would you please make corrections for Amanda.

I want to thank you for all of the postings that you have done in preserving history with your contributions to FIND-A-GRAVE.

Bennett Adkins
Betty, the dates are incorrect for Bennett Adkins. The Ebenezer cemetery book has the dates reversed. it has them born Feb 14 1847 and dying Jan 1 1801. You show them as born 14 Feb 1847 and dying Jan 1 1901. Look at the picture of the broken tombstone it clearly states he was born Jan 1 1801. I have double checked with Sam Matthews General Manager of Ebenezer Cemetery and he verity's this. He died 14 Feb 1847 which is broken off of the tombstone. He is the son of Hartwell and Charity (Sansing) Adkins. Hartwell is also buried in Ebenezer and has no tombstone or the cemetery has no record for him. The records were destroyed several times therefore they do not show him. Another of Hartwell's sons Ulysses is also buried in Ebenezer and has no tombstone or record by the Cemetery.

Please make correction to Bennett Adkins dates.

Hartwell Adkins is my gggg-grandfather and Ulysses is my ggg-grand father

RE: Pearl Dunn
I saw that it was a transfer, I was looking, because she was his wife of my Great Uncle Olin Lee Harn. Pearl died in 1983, I can't find a divorce from her, and he remarried, but he died in 1988. I met them at my Grandmother's 50 Wedding Anniversary. Thank You so much for getting in touch with me, I just thought maybe she was your family. I wanted you to know my family was Harn, and it's a honest mistake that lady made, we all make them.
