Bio Photo Greetings,

I have been researching my Family Surname Lines since 1965 and have collected many documents on:

My Lewis line back to Robert Lewis (1790 NC - bet. 1850-60 AL)and Sarah Cagle Lewis (1790 NC - 1850 AL), who came from NC to TN to Marshall Co., AL where they settled. They are buried at Lewis Cemetery in Marshall Co., AL, which was originally the old family cemetery. My Lewis line was entered into the Lewis DNA Project many years ago and results can be found there. They were early settlers of Marshall County, Alabama. Recent update: Robert Lewis (1790 NC - bet. 1850-60 AL) is the son of John C. Lewis (1740 Halifax County, VA-1830 Spotsylvania Co., VA) and Elizabeth (Lax) Lewis (Born 1745 Halifax Co., VA.

My McDonald Line back to James McDonald (1800 TN-1890 AL), who's father came from Scotland and was in TN before or by 1800. James McDonald came to AL. He married Miss Nancy Starnes, in 1820 and at that time, they settled and lived the rest of their lives in Henryville, Marshall Co., AL. They had Ten Children, and this families history has been richly documented and proven. James McDonald (1800 TN - 1890 AL) and his wife, Nancy Starnes McDonald (1803 TN - 1870 AL) and other family members are buried at McDonald Cemetery in Marshall Co., AL, which was the original family cemetery. James McDonald (1800 TN - 1890 AL) was one of the first settlers in Marshall Co., AL.

My Starnes line from Peter Starnes "Alabama Pioneer"(1803TN-1870AL), who came from TN to Marshall Co., AL with his wife, Mary "Polly" Roden Starnes and their children , including their single daughter, Miss Nancy Starnes, who married James McDonald (1800TN - 1890AL). His line follows back to England. Peter Starnes (1803TN - 1870AL) was one of the first settlers in Marshall Co., AL.

My Stanfield Line back to John Stanfield (1755-56 to 1805SC) "Revolutionary Soldier", and Sarah Roberts (1757-1857),my Stanfield Line came from SC to GA to North AL.

My Ashley Line back to John R. Ashley (1820SC) and Laura Anna Pruitt (1925SC) who came to North Al from SC.

My Gober line back to William Gober, I (1718 VA - 1794 NC)and Nancy Meekin Gober (Apr 16, 1720 England - Dec 12, 1785 NC);

My Durham Line back to Young Marcus Alexander Hezikiah Durham (1823NC-1900GA) and Mariah Elsberry Durham (1828GA-1898GA)came from NC to GA and my line to North AL. Young Marcus Alexander Hezikiah Durham's Grandfather follows back to Matthew Durham (1730NC - 1795NC).

My Evans Line back to Henry Evans (1827GA-1917GA) and Nancy E. Smith (1839GA-1921GA).

My Harris Line back to Washington "W.W." Harris (1818SC-1902AL) and Elizabeth Webb Harris (1820SC-1908AL), who came from SC to North AL. Our Harris line was entered into the DNA project many years ago and update on lineage can be found there.
Washington "W.W." Harris (1818SC-1902AL) and Elizabeth Webb Harris (1820SC-1908AL) are both buried at Webb Cemetery, Etowah County Alabama. they were buried behind Elizabeth Webb Harris's Father, John Marshall Webb. The top of their grave marker headstone was broken off and it's parts were scattered near their burial site. The base of their grave marker headstone is still in place.

My other family lines are, Cagle, Weatherly, Gazaway, Sullivan, Ellis, Sitz, Elsberry, Caldwell, Barber, and others.

Maurine Sosebee.
Thank you for the information related to Maurine. If you would like for me to, I would be happy to transfer her memorial to you. I really believe you might be closer related to her than I am. Of course, if in the future, I need to 'borrow' something for my personal (or Ancestry) family tree, I would really appreciate your permission to do so. Please please let me know if you would like to manage Maurine's memorial. Please reply.

RE: Rebecca Ann Calhoun or harrell

Thank you so much for this information on Rebecca Ann Harrell. Off and on, over the years, I have searched for information on Rebecca Harrell. As I mentioned, I did know that she was a full blood Creek Indian, and I also have a picture of her. I stumbled on some people listed that were potential heirs to a 3.5 billion settlement with the U.S. government whose last name was Harrell, so evidently there were Creek Indians who had this last name.

Also, I looked up my old genealogy chart that I had made after my father game me the names of all of his ancestors that he could remember back in the early 1950's, and Rebecca Ann Harrell was the name I had on my chart.

Now, out of curiosity, I am puzzled about how the "Calhoun" name seemed to crop up.

Anyway, again I thank you for the information you sent me.

Hilliard Roper
I am looking for a "Hilliard Roper" who died during World War II. I think he was born about 1914. He was from Tallahassee, AL. Since you have a Hilliard Melvin Roper, I thought you might know of this Roper family. I will appreciate any help you might can give.

Lindsey Elsberry
The link referring to Lindsey's wife was created by the owner of Lindsey's memorial. I'm owner of Elizabeth's memorial and I have no control over Lindsey's memorial. The system will not allow me to link them as spouses until the link on Lindsey memorial is removed or changed. Thanks.
