A Texan's family tree is like a beautiful rose with many fragrant petals, but with any rose, you have thorny branches that needs pruning on occasion....the same goes with families.
Beatitudes of the Family Genealogists:

Blessed are the great grandmothers, who hoarded newspaper clippings and old letters, For they tell the story of their time. Blessed are all the grandfathers who filed every legal document, For this provides proof. Blessed are the grandmothers who preserved family Bibles and diaries, For this our heritage. Blessed are fathers who elect officials that answer letters of inquiry, For some, this is their only link to the past. Blessed are mothers who relate family traditions and legends to the family, For one of her children will surely remember. Blessed are the relatives who fill in family sheets with extra data, For them who owe the family history. Blessed is any family whose members strive for the preservation of records, For theirs is a labour of love. Blessed are the children who will never say, "Grandma, you have told that old story twice today."written by Unknown;

I also try very hard not to 'duplicate', but every now and again, one get's through. Please know that it wasn't intentional. If you'll let me know, I'll delete them.

Sharren Formby
Michael Formby
Michael Formby was born about 1654 in Formby, Lancashire, England and Died about 1710 near West Point, Virginia. His burial location is not known, however is is somewhere around West Point, Virginia. Michael married about 1670 to an unknown lady and she gave birth to only one known child Nicholas Gunn Formby Sr.

Michael Formby is the 3rd child of Richard Formby LOM (Lord of the Manor) and Ann Hesketh. He had 8 siblings, in birth order, James, Nicholas, Richard, Elizabeth, Thomas, Alice, Jane, and Ann.

Michael and 3 of his brothers, James, Nicholas, and Thomas left England for the New World. History records only show two, Michael and Nicholas, landing in the US near West Point in Virginia. Both made their homes near West Point. It is said that Michael named his only son after his brother Nicholas.

The Formby family pedigree at one time stated that Michael died DSP (Without Male Heir). In 1923 Rev. Joseph Davis Fomby, Find A Grave # 81777765, began to correspond with John Formby LOM, to correct the Formby Pedigree and show Michal Formby as having a son and male heir. The letters continued back and forth until the death of John Formby. John Frederick Lonsdale Formby became LOM and continued the dialog with Rev. Joseph Fomby of the US. Finally on 28 Apr 1923 the Formby Family Pedigree was amended to state that Michael Formby was no longer considered DSP but indeed did have a son and heir. Thus the original Formby line in the US can trace its linage back to the Formby family of Formby Manor.

Not all Formbys in the US are from Michael as many new Formbys have come from England and made their homes in the US.


I hope this helps. I made it as short as possible, and still kept the facts. If you have any questions please just ask.

Hi Nancy,
Trying to find who his parents were. We were told my 2nd great grandmother was Adah who was Native American however, I had my DNA checked and no Native American in me. My brother and I are at odds over this. Any information you can provide can help clear up this mystery.

Linking Rozella Miller to parents
Hi, there,

I am trying to add the rest of Charlie P. Niell's children to his list. Having difficulty! I thought it might be because you originally entered Rozella Miller and it won't let me edit her to include Charlie and Hettie's numbers as her parents. Can you tell me what I need to do to make it happen or if you can take care of it? he has seven other children who are not listed: John Henry, Quimsy Adam, Mary S. Martha Jane, Annie Lue,(with Hettie Chelnessa) Willie Ladonia Niell Parker, Tomie Gretna Niell Rogers, and Charles Dudley Niell (with Sallie). Thank you. Arvinell

Sarah Barlow/Tula Cemetery
The Holly Springs South Newspaper
Holly Springs, Miss.
February 8, 1893


On the 20th ult., that stern and silent messenger, death, came for the spirit of Mrs. Sarah Barlow, one of Marshall's oldest citizens.
She was born in Robinson County, N. C., January 11, 1805, and lived there until she married, when she moved with her family to Tennessee, where she remained a few years; then moved into Mississippi, stopping awhile in Tippah County, and afterwards settled in Marshall County, where she spent about fifty years of her life. The last year of her life was spent in Lafayette County, where she passed peacefully away in the arms of our Savior. She told them when dying the angels were lighting around her bed, and at the hour of 6 p. m., January 20, they bore her aged spirit on high, where she has gone to dwell with the loved ones gone before.
A Friend.
