Sproles Information
Thank you for all the research and information you have posted on the various Sproles' graves! These have been invaluable to me! I would love to know more about you and your line as I am sure we are related!

MaryAnne Glasgow and Joh Patton McClellan
Same both of these entries are of my DIRECT ggreat grandparents.. some of what you are calling 'family lore' is information coming to me STRAIGHT from either a grandchild or living wife from when I make an extended visit to MS in 1979 and from letters and convos thereafter.. . the letter was indeed copied by Hal in the last years of Oscar 'Pet" Hunter's life

John Patton is indeed buried in Providence Cemetery as one of the unmarked 12 graves in line with his daughter Betty McClellan Tyler,.. all these graves were at one time marked with field stones.. I am the great-granddaughter of John & MaryAnne's oldest Son, James, who moved to Arkansas before the Civil; War,.. a lot of info has been passed to me by many family members as I ask a LOT of questions...
Are you somehow related to my ggreatgrands as I have a couple of the boys I have not been able to find after the war.. BTW I was told MaryAnn died while she was staying at her daughter's Margaret Jane Muirhead who is buried AT Midway..
pls let me know if you are related..

Anna Harless Robinson
Anna Harless Robinson was my husband's maternal grandmother. I just wondered if you would have a problem with me sharing the picture of her and her husband to a WikiTree profile I have created for her, as well as the information you have entered?

Hey Cousin
Just wanted to say Hi, like keeping in touch with all my living peeps out there. There a lot of us, seems we like large families, so its a chore for sure, but one I happily do.

Anyway, I'm a Haygood and if your a Harrell Horton, then you descend, in Texas at least from Elizabeth Haygood Harrell, whose Daughter married Horton. Elizabeth is my 4x Great Aunt. I descend from Henry Griffin Haygood her Brother and then down Henry H Haygood, and you guess what his son was named and Great Grandfather again Henry Hickerson Haygood (don't know where that comes from) and my Grandfather Henry Eugene Haygood aka Buddy, which is confusing if you don't know him because his cousin is Henry Elvie Haygood (yes, related to Elvis, Elvis mother was a smith from Mississippi. We are related to the Smith's of Mississippi, Amite County) and also was nicknamed Buddy. Go figure, no imagination, they like the name.

My Grandmother broke the cycle naming my Uncle after his Maternal Great Grandfather Charles Wilkerson, so no more Henry, just Charles Ray Haygood.

Tom Gibson
Hi Sam,

I am trying to determine if Tom ever married or had children with Bettie Golden.

I see on the 1930 census that Bettie had Elbert, Charlie & Alice living with her and no record of Tom or Mauve/Minnie.

Do you happen to have additional information?

Wadeanna Horton

I am the great- great granddaughter of Wadeanna Horton, Wade Horton's daughter.

I see by your findagrave info that there were some discrepancies around the genealogy of Wadeanna.

Through ancestry DNA testing, I am a DNA match for the Horton line with other Horton descendants and am included in The Julius Horton DNA circle. So, I believe that Wadeanna was the biological daughter of Wade.

Is H.H. Henry?
My 3rd great grand uncle is Henry H Sproles, son of Thomas Sproles, and I'm wondering if that is the same H. H. Sproles of your Memorial# 52714754 who served in the 1st Mississippi Sharpshooter Battalion. Also wondering if we're cousins and if you're in SCV.
