Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in southern California in 1954 to Mary and Buster Jackson, a Missionary Baptist minister. I am the oldest of 5 children and presently live in East Texas. I retired from the Navy in 1992, and have a BS degree in History. I love genealogy and enjoy getting in touch with my roots. I have over 15K names in my data base, I am the great...grandnephew of Daniel Boone via the Grant family (his sister, Elizabeth Boone married William Grant), as well as many other people that I have discovered along the way (including General William Tatum Wofford, a distant cousin). Would love to hear from any family members, close or distant.
I have a majority of family names in my files, but I will include here only my major branches from my grandparent's level.
Jackson - Pope, Wofford - Grant (sounds like a bunch of Civil War generals, doesn't it?).

Re Elizabeth Boone/Grant - -
Hello - - - I noticed AFTER I'd posted my note to Mr. Wayne smith (he did not capitalize his last name) concerning the fake photo of my far distant grandmother, Elizabeth Grant, that you and another had also tried to educate smith on the impossibility of this photo being accurate. At least four of us know about this; just one obstinately refuses to accept the fact.
My suggestion is to add a note in your bio of Lizzie stating something about this error - - since smith is not interested in removing it.
On another note - - one of her daughters was Sarah, who married John Sanders, whose daughter, Mary, married into my fathers line. The closest I can get to Sarah is to her daughter, Mary (23433445).
Best regards - Charles Bryan

Hi Ray,
Just notice that you have the maiden name wrong for Robert Edward Lowe's mother. It is Emily Harrison. I believe you have it Hutton. I found this information several years ago off of Robert Edward's Social Security Number application.

Mr. Jackson

I loaded the funeral notice again. Did not know how to delete the first one. Let me know if this works, if not will send you a copy to you directly.

It shows up as being ok when I look at it

RE: name error.
Mr. Jackson

I will be more than happy to reload the funeral notice. I obtained this from the Dallas County Mo Historical Society.

I am connected with Mrs. Norman through the Long side of the family.

Hi Ray,
I added a lot of new memorials and stone photo's for many of your family members, I believe. Too many to name, and some with different surnames. Check which ones, and let me know via edit tab and I will be more than happy to transfer all to you. I have been linking them together as I have found them, but there may be some for the married girls that I have not been able to link to parents. I have about 300 more photo's to go through for that particular section of the cemetery, so there may be more to follow.

RE: Thank you for the transfers.
I guess you should transfer them back and I will add the additional information I found on them and do some more research to help others find them. Kay 47544217
