Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a retired lawyer in Clarksdale, MS. I'm looking especially for my ancestors with the last names Dodson (MS and TN), Robinson(MS and TN), Davant (NC, GA and TX) and McNeill (MS & TX).

FAG states that "Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.... Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request." Please state your relationship in any transfer request to me.

If anyone wants to use any of the photos that I post to find-a-grave for or whatever, you have my continuing permission.

I enjoy hearing from people about any of the people I have put up on find-a-grave and am happy to add links, obits, etc.

RE: Douglas
Did you graduate with Hayden Hall, Rick Anderson, etc.?

I only knew of Davant by name. I knew Louisa and Mony because they went to CHS.

Thanks for your reply. I think a another classmate of mine, Robert Weldon lives in Pittsburgh.

Have a good day!

Hi Jack,

I am a grandson of Etoile and Thurman Douglas. My mother is their daughter, Juanita and my father was Ben Crawford, Jr who died in October of 2009. You probably knew my parents and maybe my grandmother. Anyway, thanks for posting their headstones on Find A Grave. I live in Maryland now and don't get back home much. All of my kids are in Louisiana where they were born.

I knew the Dodson's (Newton's group) and I knew of a Davant Dodson. Is she related to you?

My grandmother, Bettie Haney Franklin, is related to Sam Thaxton Haney. I have not found how they are related. Do you have an idea who his folks were. My relative knew sons, Marshall, Frank and Bobbie.

Joseph (Josey) Raymond Hays
Hello. Thanks for all of your work with F.A.G.! I just submitted a name change request for the above. All census records show Mr. Hays as Josey or J.R. Only the F.A.G. name is shown as Joseph. Family of Josey also tell me he was "Josey". Out of curiosity, I was wondering if you have documentation for "Joseph"? Thanks, Alan Atwood

By the way, Sarah Louise Eager who married Fincher Gist Bobo (1815-1856) married Samuel L H Clarke after Fincher died. She is also buried in Grange Cemetery as is one of her sons by Fincher, Robert Eager Bobo. Fincher is buried in Fredonia Cemetery in Panola County.

RE: Sam'l Clarke
Thanks so much Jack. I don't think Samuel had any grandchildren at least not that I know of. He had 2 sons, one died young (George) and the other married in 1875 but in the 1880 census he is alone and listed as a widower (Curtis B). I just don't know if Curtis remarried or if he had children because I can't find him after 1880. How nice for you to have the diary! Thanks again.

Sam'l Clarke
Thanks for the photo Jack, I really appreciate it.
May I point out that his last name is spelled with an 'e' on the end on the stone. Also I found a family bible listing at the DAR that says his name was Samuel Lee Hardy Clarke, and that his dob was 14 March. Clearly the gravestone says 11 March, so it could be either one! But it is nice to know that he is in fact buried in the Grange Cemetery and have a picture of the gravestone. Just wish I knew what happened to his children George and Curtis.
Thanks again,
