No relative. One of my pet projects is the 16th GA INF as I had a lot of relatives in it. I found the information for Gaines in an newspaper article about a confederate reunion.

Hello, Brandon. Thanks you for calling this discrepancy to my attention. I have made a note on the bio for Madie Jean Wooderson Bailey, #65357982, that the 2 dates of birth conflict.

The Texas Birth Index would be the official date to go by. The family may have chosen to alter the dob, and we would not know the reason why.

Madie Jean and I were born in the same year, 1931, and we were classmates. At that time, a child had to be age 6 before Sept. 1 in order to begin 1st grade. Maybe her parents wanted to get her in school that year. Maybe a birth certificate was not required in order to enter school back in 1931. This is just a thought.

If the date of birth, 15 March 1931, appeared on her Social Security documents, there likely was some official paper work done somewhere. We can keep that in mind when we research.

It would be interesting to find out, but my memory of her will continue to be of her as a true-blue friend and classmate.

Cordially, Virginia O.

RE: Smithland cemetery
Go southwest on hwy 371 Go north on Columbia 27 then east on Columbia 147. There are entrances on both Columbia 27 and Columbia 147. The entrance on Columbia 27 is a deer camp road. The entrance on Columbia 147 is a dirt path. Most of the Smith tombstones were destroyed or not there.

Hi, J.B. ...

Thanks for getting to these links for her parents so quickly. I've gotten in the habit of requesting a maiden name be added when I send a woman's parents' links. It's just a method of double-checking, I guess. Thank you so much for your work!

Thank You for the obit on Walker and the information on Clementine. I have her on my family tree, but did not have the burial memorial from Find A Grave for her. I do now!

I am also a member of Ancestry and have large family tree there on the Formby/Fomby line. If you would like to see it let me know and I will send you the necessary info.

Contact me on my email at:

Thank You Again

We knew him as Barnes and Eunice. There picture is at findagrave. She is buried there per her DC. She is a 1st cousin to Josey (Josephine Hensley Dehay. They are also related to Bernice Hensley Strand, she was married to Arthur Strand, both are buierd at Bapt Cem. I have been there. I have also traced it on under Bertling/Hopkins if you would like to look. I used to go visit Bernice and Arthur and Ruby in the 1980's. The picture that is on findagrave is about the 1970's. I have a group picture of Hensley's girls if you would like to see it. My grandmother Ocy Lesta Dehay Nevins and two of my cousins are in it, but I don't know whom the other chid is, mybe a grandson of one of Eunice, Ila or Ruby. Bernice and Arthur never had any children.

Barnes and Eunice Wooderson's
Do you have a Barnes and Eunice Wooderson in your line. Also are they buried in the Bapt cem in Bedias as well. Can you add them? I have a picture of them from 1971 that I would like to add. My grandmother's mother was Josey Hensley DeHay.

I don't normally give away Revolutionary War Soldiers, but if he is your ancestor I will gladly give him up to you.
