Love re-connecting families here on Find a Grave!!! Always working on family history mostly interested in BUTLER, GOLDSBY, POLLOCK, DAVIS, MURRAY and FAIRCLOTH families from Virginia and North Carolina but I get distracted and end up working on very distant cousin families all the time! :)|

Max's parents are buried on the old farmstead in Essex County. His Mother Loulie died first (My Aunt Ellen remembers that she suffered from severe rheumatoid arthritis and other ailments before she passed), then Max, Then his Father. His Father was living in New Jersey with his son Richard at the time of his passing (A few years after Trick.) and was brought home to rest beside loulie. Cousin Richard kept ownership of the Essex County Homestead until his death in the 80's even though he lived and worked (in the oil industry) in New Jersey. He made trips "home" yearly to hunt and fish on the homestead property/ surrounding area and also to visit friends and family in the area. He is buried in New Jersey, but I don't know where.
Loulie's Brother, Philip Payne "Peachy" Greenstreet, Jr. worked as a night watchman at the Taylor and Caldwell Cannery which was located in Walkerton on the banks of the Mattaponi River. Mr. Taylor was a local businessman/farmer and I'm sure that there was/is some connection to Trick's Father, but I don't know just how.
As to the cancer, I'm told that Trick didn't become symptomatic until about a week or so before he died. He first had headaches, then ear aches. The cancer mass then bulged out through the opening in his skull for his ear and was said to be "near the size of a walnut" at the time his death. The quickness of the mass's growth put pressure on his brain that resulted in the hemorrhaging that killed him. This sequence of events came from his brother, Richard, as he told it to my Aunt years later on one of his trips "Home". Her Mother, Loula Ellen Greenstreet Prince (my Grandmother, and Trick's/Richard's first cousin) was battling breast cancer at the time (She won!), which sparked the conversation.
|Jim Longest||RE: Max Taylor|
Maxie was a cousin to my Mother and Aunt. His Mother was Loula T. Greenstreet who was the only sister (and the youngest sibling) of their Grandfather, William Milton Greenstreet. My Mother has passed away, but my Aunt is still with us and she confirms that his middle name was indeed Ferry. She was about 13 when Maxie died. She says that he was a special sort of person and that it was impossible to not like him. "Everyone just loved him dearly" according to her. She doesn't remember exactly when he first went to Richmond, but she thinks that he was in his early 20's when he did so. That would put it at around 1930 or so. She said that the hemorrage that killed him was the result of a brain tumor that started (Quickly) growing on the outside of his skull. It was a little late when I called her, so I didn't want to keep her up. (She's 87 this year) But I will try to get more from her later this week and will be only too happy to send whatever I can your way.

No, no close relation to Claudia and Clarence Fonda. I'm just the Fonda family historian.

Yes I went to the office. I put the picter of the grave regester on her memorial. There are more Butlers buried there. You can use the picture if you like.
