Perry Orr / Bunker Gary, We have the same G G Grandmother. The obit has my G Great Grandfather as Perry Orr. It is Perry Andrew Bunker from Mary's first marriage to James Perry Bunker. Will you please correct his last name in the obit section. Perry also has a sister named Sarah that is buried in Conway,Ark. I will ask the person that created the memorial to attach her to Mary also. Thanks.
Blalock in Travis County, Texas Hello, I noticed that biographical information has been added for the Blalock family members in Travis County, Texas. Did you add this information, or can you point me to who did? I am interested in exploring this family further, as we are searching for cousins and other relatives who settled in that area. We have direct ancestors who were married or born in Travis County, but are having trouble locating documents there. Thanks for any help you can provide. :-)
I will just copy the obit to this message and delete the one I created.
