Hi there - You just really are the greatest! That's a beautiful photo and I appreciate it so very, very much. I appreciate your generosity and your caring about the history of Waco. Thanks on behalf of me as well as my family, Nancy
|Carl Langford||Loella Chambers|
Will be working into article about what you sent. I have did some more up dates on her memorial. I been looking to see if any old records of her going to school and maybe graduated from college. It shows Mary-Hardin was the that girls went to back then.
Thinks Carl e-mail me and will send my write up when finished maybe next week or the next.
|Nancy Yankie Sidarous||RE: HOMER FRANKLIN - FIRST STREET CEMETERY|
Thank you and it was just great of you to post the photo of Grandma Annie Franklin's headstone and to being my attention to an err4oneous assumption! I really do appreciate it, and anyone should feel most fortunate that someone cared to correct it.
I'm going to get some assistance in working my way through the Franklin clan. I'm getting in contact with some of my Franklin cousins.
|Nancy Yankie Sidarous||HOMER FRANKLIN - FIRST STREET|
Good Morning - I don't know how I missed Homer til now. What do you know about him if anything? I'm looking for a child of Hugh Samuel and Martha Jane Franklin and his name starts with an "H".
I found Grandpa Franklin's Mother but only after he retrieved her and she was living with him and his family. Unbelievably, there was a divorce! This was quite a shock, but I do recall some talk of his going to get her and two sisters. The father kept the two sisters against the Mothers's will.
Granpa Franklin's Mother remarried a Williams Burton in Virginia where she had previously lived. Information about Grandpa F is hard to find; he did descend however from Benjamin Franklin. I really need to go through some trunks but time is a huge factor when running a business and keeping a 92 year old Mother!
I would like to investigate Homer. Thank you.
|Carl Langford||Luella Chambers|
Thanks for the input about her. How luck to have came across this info. I'm showing the family in McLennan Co. on 1880 census an Luella age 16. To author a book in 1879 she must of been a smart girl. I also saw on one Census the she taught music an gave Piano lessons. Any Info. welcomed.
Thanks. I descend from Robert Smith (d1776) of Cumberland, VA, AG's grandfather, through son Byrd Smith (the "Virginia Branch"). Have much research and would like to correspond with you, and any Smith descendants.

Hi, I have been researching her family since I came across an artile she wrote in 1937. I am working on an article about her. Any info would help. I have them in Johnson Co., Tx in 1860.
|Nancy Yankie Sidarous||RE: ANNIE ELIZABETH FRANKLIN|
Hi, Yes I got that the dates were correct all along! And I must say I was amazed. My first amazement was that they COULD be wrong and knowing my family as I do, that they had left it. So . . . you certainly cleared that up.
You're correct that of course I should not destroy it. And you also brought to my attention that I have to check with the powers that be with Greenwood though I would have to find out who that is. I'm a "Chiney Gal" and accustomed to making decisions regarding things at the two Whitfield/Yankie lots there and it didn't come to mind that I might need to ask! Since I value and respect your opinion (you've been at this longer and it would appear quite a " ge3nealogical professional"), would it be appropriate to use the existing headstone as it is quite small as a foot stone if Greenwood approves that? Annie Elizabeth Franklin was just such a strong, remarkable presence in this family that I would like very much to leave a finer monument to her life. She certainly left her mark on this family and on this old world.

You are welcome!
|Kenneth Ford III||RE: Lucy Mullens at First Street Cemetery|
Lucy is an indirect ancestor of mine. I have that her maiden name was Lucy Kennon Macon. Her parents were Warner Macon and Elizabeth Brunson.
She would be a distant cousin of mine.
