His mother's name was shown as Eveline Hightower on her marriage record (Tennessee, Marriages, 1796-1950), but usually as Emaline or even Emily in other records.

Just an FYI since you had a question mark on Wesley's page.

Kristi Miller
Staggs Reunion
Hello Gerald,

My name is Kristi Miller. My grandmother was Mabel Ellen Staggs and her grandmother was Ellen Blake Staggs. My grandmother was named after her grandmother and was actually delivered by Ellen Blake Staggs. This was not uncommon for that time. This past Saturday we had the Staggs Reunion on the creek bank just down from Shady Grove Church of Christ. It is the creek that Shady Grove would do their baptisms in. I would dearly love to get a copy of the photo of the Staggs Reunion from 1900. Please let me know if this is possible.
