I am great grandson of Dora Purser
I am the great grandson of Dora (Staggs Springer) Purser. Her daughter Mildred Purser was my grandmother. I was told that my great grandmother was of Native American (Cherokee) lineage.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank You
Thanks for posting the photo of my grandfather's headstone. I was unable to find his grave when I visited the cemetery (on a Sunday) several years ago. A 1st cousin that I haven't seen in 65 years has left a message on the website and I hope we can connect with each other again.

Thanks again,
Carol Hudson

This is my Mother! I want to care for her page. I have even " sponsored" her page. But you say "please do not ask for transfers"? How would you feel if this was your Mother. I would be glad to also update info you don't seem to have. Please, for what ever time I have left on this earth, let me have it taking care of my Mom's FAGM page. Thank you for you time.

Newspaper article on this site is Wonderful. I have been looking for info to verify somethings for about 20 years. This has helped so much. John (James Uncle)went to Ill. that is my direct line. John changed McAnally to McAnelly the line went on to texas.

Sallie A Colvett Walker
I took pictures of the Robertson Fork Cemetery yesterday (FYI: it's always windy up there and don't go there when it's cold) and took som epictures of the graves. I found Sallie and thee is no mention of a marital name. But when I looked in, a "Sally A Colvett" did marry a "Newton J Walker" on 28 Jan 1885 in Marshall County. I coun't find him though there are Newton B Walkers (same guy, two cemeteries) in Marshall County. Just thought I should let you know.

Malinda "Jane" Walker Grubbs

The biological father of Malinda "Jane" Walker Grubbs (83714249) was not William Calloway Walker.

If you check the 1850 census, her surname and that of her mother, Bethena, and her sister, Ellen, was Cannon.

Her father was probably, T. N. Cannon, who I think was the only 1840 Cannon head of household in Bedford County TN, who was not living in 1850.

Someone has theorized that Bethena was the sister of William Calloway Walker.
