Charles Paris Armfield # 42111535
Hi There!
I have been researching this family on and off for a while now. Much of my initial information came from my mother-in-law and my grandmother-in-law. In the early 1950's they were living in Oregon, when they met an Armfield family at a Job's Daughters ceremony. (My aunt-in law Dana Lou Bateman (1936-1986) and Gail Edith Armfield (1936-2013) were being inducted into this organization.) The families got chatting and discovered Gail's granddad Elmer was brother to Dana's great-granddad, Charles Paris. My mother in law (who was about 10 at the time) remembers they were informed they had "just missed him"...which led her to believe (later in life) Charles had recently died....and I have always had "died abt 1953 in OR" on my family file....which has gone viral.....and now that information is everywhere!.....on other family files, on findagrave, and even in the Armfield family newsletter.

Seeing as Elmer died in 1949....i believe that is who they "just missed"

Charles is enumerated in the 1920 census in MT....and that is the last time he appears in records (OK ancestry has in in local phonebooks up to about 1923) it is more safe to say he died between 1923 and 1930 in MT

And the "Red" nickname was apparently because he had red hair (this information also came from this 1953ish meeting)

Thanks! I'm just hopping to correct my error!

I would like to pick up your photo request but Sparkman Hillcrest (SH) will not provide burial locations to volunteers, citing privacy issues. Your cooperation is needed in order for requests to be filled. The volunteers will need you to call SH and request the location. Their phone number is 214-363-5401. Once you have the location, please add it to your request. Thanks.

Whitehead Family
The Whiteheads attended the Union Predestinarian Baptist Church in Flat Branch Twp., Shelby Co, ILLinois. There are minutes to this church and a membership list. They left Illinois c. 1855. Elder Robert Webb, the Primitive Baptist Church Archivist and Family History Research Assistance website in Carthage, IL. sent me information on the Tolly's and the Whiteheads who married into the White family. Thot you might like to know.

Irving or Bald Knob Cemetery
Can you please tell me where the Irving Cemetery or I think it is also called Bald Knob? It is supposed to be north east of Irving. We have several family members buried there, but are not listed.
Thank you,

RE: Jacob File
How nice that they will let you dig a little to get the date. I am betting it is indeed 1852!
