|Bio and Links|
I am youngest of 9 adopted children by |
Stanley Eugene Disney and Frances Higbee Martin. I am also a twin. She was adopted with me.
I am the unofficial family historian. All the family was interested in finding their biological mother/father and I was far more interested in my [adopted] father's history.
I have been working on the family tree since 2007. I have found 1st cousins to 5th cousins alive and its been great. Looking for Disney, Martin, Miller, Vansants and Zirkles.
I also found my great grandmother at Pioneers Rest Cemetery in Texas through findagrave.com.
I started my husband's family tree 6 years ago and now have over 51,000 relatives identified. I used to laugh at those that had 50,000 on their tree; as I thought it impossible..... NO LONGER!!
I have found many of my husbands family connections here at findagrave. His direct line is Darby, Ducharme, Lundy, Mays, McClurg, Wilson.
When I visit cemeteries I am there to take pictures of family members but always try to also take pictures of anyone located near by to upload to the site in hopes to help others in their research.
If I own an entry on the site that is not a family member, I would be happy to transfer it.
Family Connections made thru findagrave
I was doing some headstone hunting in Altadena California, looking for my husband's Great Grandmother's burial and made an even more important discovery. You can read the story here
Ancestry DNA Testing Discovery
We were contacted by a 3rd cousin of my husbands thru the DNA testing on ancestry.com and she was looking for information on GGGrandmother Susan "Gangy" . She was fairly new at this searching, and was insisting that this Susan Henley was located in Ohio. Susan is also my husband's GGGrandmother.
I worked for a week straight on this Henley branch and kept hitting a brickwall. I finally said that something just doesn't fit....Doesn't make sense. Go back to your Mom (who was fortunately still alive) and ask some questions. Her Mom had had a stroke so her memory wasn't up to par.
She came back with the name of Susan Creswell which was her maiden name. From there I found her in Louisiana and we unearthed a big family secret. What I unearthed was that Susan Creswell was first married to a Jean Desire Ducharme, had 4 children and then ran away in 1901 in the middle of the night with the children. A newspaper article has Mr. Ducharme searching for them. I found Church parish records recording the children's births.
Susan apparently ran away to Mississippi, hid for at least 20 years and then married a John L. Mays and renamed the children to Mays. This is the surname of my husband's mother. Susan then married at least once more that we can verify, to a Mr. Henley. There are no marriage records as we think she never divorced her first husband Jean Ducharme. Susan only comes out of hiding in the 1930 census. The rest of the information comes from "family"
Susan Creswell raised my 3rd cousin's mother and my 3'rd cousin was trying to put together a family tree for her mother as a gift.
What we got was finding more family, and unearthing a family secret.

Per your request, I've made changes to the above memorial. Feel free to contact me if you need additional changes/additions.
|James Robert "Bobby" Campbell||Mary Elizabeth Dawson 51854971|
Censuses cited below indicate that Mary Elizabeth Dawson found on findagrave.com as # 51854971 and the child of Benoni and Margaret Dawson
is not the mother of William "Willie" Jenkins (1856 - 1936) findagrave # 51855527 and
Carrie Jenkins Adams (1862 - 1952) findagrave.com # 51923645
The 1900 Census notes that Mary Elizabeth Dawson listed as Mary E. Jenkins a widow had 4 children born, 3 living and children listed: Margaret G age28; George E age 24; Minnie J age 28.
The 1880 Census has her listed as Mary D Jenkins, wife of Benjamin C Jenkins with children Carrie E age 18, Maggie age 10, George B age 6, Minnie age 4.
The 1870 Census has her listed as Mary Emily Jenkins and her husband Benjamin in the household of her mother Margaret Dawson with Willie age 13, Carrie age 8, Clarence age 2, Maggie 0. Clarence is not in the 1880 Census, then deceased. So her 4 children are Clarence, Maggie, George, and Minnie.
The 1860 Census has her listed as M E Dawson still at home with her parents, the household of B E Dawson. That is 3 years after Willie was born as cited in the 1870 Census.
The 1850 Census has her listed as Mary Dawson at home with her parents, the household of Benoni Dawson.
Willie and Carrie are the children of Benjamin and his first wife also a Mary, Mary J. Welden.
Mary E Jenkins, "United States Census, 1900"
Mary D Jenkins in household of Benjamin C Jenkins, "United States Census, 1880"
Mary Emily Jenkins in household of Margaret Dawson, "United States Census, 1870"
M E Dawson in household of B E Dawson, "United States Census, 1860"
Mary Dawson in household of Benoni Dawson, "United States Census, 1850"
Buist was a name which started with the Rev. George Buist born in Fife, Scotland in 1770 and died in Charleston in 1809. The family became very prominent over the years. Here's a bio I did on his grandson http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=25540455
