Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy doing genealogy research. When I go gravedigging (that is what my friend calls it), taking pictures and listing Military markers, my husband and small dog go with me. I have done research on our families: Morrison, Miller, Menges,Lockhart, Harris, Baker, Richardson, Fleet,Fenton and many more. We are still running into brick walls, but keep trying. If I can be help in finding markers in my area, please contact me. If you find any errors in any of my entries, I will gladly correct them if you let me know.

The only complaint I have is contributors putting information on FAG before the deceased is buried. People lets give the family this respect.

Adam Benson Powell
Would you please add the following to Adam Benson Powell's memorial page. He's the only Adam Benson Powell on

Besides the three children listed below, a fourth child born to Adam and Louise was Frank John Powell. His grave has not yet been found. He was born on October 28, 1860, in Powelldale or Towash, Bosque County, Texas. He died on August 30, 1948, in Odessa, Ector County, Texas. He married Janie Elizabeth Terry who was born on April 26, 1866, in Atlanta, Georgia. She died on January 31, 1945, in Stanton, Martin County, Texas.

Thank you. I tried to use "other" on the edit tab, but the instructions were so confusing that I'm sure you will not receive my request that way. Sorry!

Caroline GreenPowell
I have a Great Grandmother named Caroline Green Powell who married an Alex Lay. I have found no trace of her parents/siblings family other than a maybe on a census where 2 young sisters were living alone.

Caroline and Emaline "Powl".

I have a wikitree profile for her:
I am hoping that with all the Powell info you have you might have a clue as to her parents.

Her mother was possibly a Sarah.

Caroline lived in Alabama, Winston and Walker counties.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Donna, I see that you are related to Thomas Larkin Baker. I am related to his sister Eugenia. I am hoping that you have more family history than I have. I was hoping that you may know when Thomas's father Rollin died. I have his probate records date April 15, 1863 so I know that it was before that. I have been hunting for Rollin since about 1999.

Thank you and you are correc. At one time, J.W. Free and Ida Bland were married. After Ida Bland deceased, J.W. Free would marry my Great Aunt, Eva Mills, who was his wife at the time of his death. My "Aunt Eva" would subsequently inherit Mr. Frees' estate, and that has since been passed down to us. This is how I know of Mr. Free.
