George Wafer
Hi George,

On the 1880 Rains County Census it say that Mabry had a son named George born 1875. Is that an error?

Just an interesting note, I know a black George Wafer from Greenville who is in a Texas prison now and supposedly a descendent from Mabry. I might write him.

Best Wishes,

Doug

Wafer
Hi George,

Thanks for the invite to your tree. It is a nice one. I appreciate the transfer of management on the memorials you did and I already did the family links to help avoid future confusion for any others viewing them.

I didn't know Mabry Wafer's last wife's (Mollie)maiden name was Adams before she married a Rose. I always wondered. I noticed Mollie's daughter Hallie has the maiden name spelt wrong as Ross instead of Rose in an article. This happens in obituary's also often to this day. My great aunt on my dad's side died last month of 101. I have a baby girl due this year when my maternal grandmother and her cousin are due to be 100. I'm getting to old to have anymore babies, I'd better stop while I'm ahead.

Much Obliged,

Doug Vail

James Edward Wafer Sr.
Hello 4th cousin George,

I know that my great grand uncle James Edward Wafer Sr. married Mabry Wafer's step daughter in Nov. 1902 to Viola Olga Rose who died in 1914. Viola was the daughter of a Mr. Rose. Mabry Wafer's last marriage was to her widowed mother Mollie Melvina Rose. I don't know what Mollie's maiden name was but she was married to a "Rose" before she married Mabry who adopted her children as his own and I've seen where they used the surname Wafer as well.

"Uncle Ed" also had a son out of wedlock that looked just like him and shot him in the foot for not raising him. I cannot find James Edward Wafer Sr. on the 1940 census even though he died in 1945. I wonder if he remarried after circa 1931 and his secind wife if he had one adopted any the adult children. Here is the 1910, 1920 and 1930 census records with Clyde Wafer on them:

Mary Elizabeth Fuqua
I was just recently requested to add Mary Elizabeth Fuqua's maiden name as "Almond" by Richard Mayo
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=mr&MRid=47858066

May I ask why you think that her maiden name is "Milam" instead?

May I ask why you think that Mary Elizabeth Fuqua really doesn't have a middle name when her grave marker reads:
"MARY ELIZABETH FUQUA"?

Thank you so much for transferring my cousin's memorial to me. I really appreciate. I was wondering if it would be all right with you if I uploaded your headstone photo to my family tree, giving you photo credit, of course. Thanks again!

Ida Mae Nix
I googled to find my grandmother's date of death and found this site with your name. We must be cousins. Ida Mae was the mother of my mother, Annie Mae Grimes Walden. It was fun reading the messages. I saw names of folks I haven't seen or thought of in years: GC Pate, Bobbie June, Deana, Julie, Anita, to name a few. My sister named her son after Joel Isaac, whom I believe was a great grandfather to us.
Thanks for the info!

Family Link
Hey George,

If you go right under the biography at the top of the memorial then go to "Family Links" and click on the blue letters [Edit] and then you can add the parents or spouse as a family link on if you have there memorial number. You can include the marriage year as well. You will then see the names connected in blue when you are done. Pretty neat.

Thanks,

Doug

RE: Wafer - Bryant
Hey George,

Did the guy from Mesquite say his wife's name was Mary? Mary Porter (later Hartin) is the daughter of Mollie (Wafer) Porter daughter of Uncle Ed Wafer. I tried to buy 100 acres from Mary in Rains County after her divorce from Mr. Hartin, but she wouldn't come down on the price or terms. I remember when I went to her house in Mesquite she said she had a 3rd DIFFERENT photo of Mabry Wafer playing a fiddle on a porch. She has a 4th cousin or so Ken Porter that married and divorced Marina Oswald. I remember Mollie and Lum at family reunions and anniversary get-togethers. I never did get to see the photo, after requests, possibly because I couldn't make the deal on the real estate May be a different set of Wafers.

My cell number changed. My home # is the same (903) 598-DOUG. I am off Monday Columbus day by the way. I look forward to seeing you this month and we can go see the old Wafer place.

Regards,
Doug
