Thomas L.G. Jones #95833083 Eunice, please unlink Hettie (Jones) Brown (#13274537)from from Thomas Levi Glanville Jones (above). She was not his sister. T.L.G. was my great grandfather, and his parents were John Jones and Mary (Thornhill) Jones, not Thomas and Delilah Sarah Pulliam. My Jones family was from Franklin County, MO. Thank you.
Barnes family Eunice, I see you were raised in Leflore county. My father and his side of the family grew up and live in Poteau and Cameron Oklahoma. I know I am kin to you on my Mom's side but I was curious if you knew any of the Barnes on Dad's side. Bobby Lee Barnes "Bob" (Dad), Floyd and Mable Barnes (GrandParents), Don Barnes "Former Mayor of Poteau (Cousin), Bob and ILA Mae Niblet (Aunt &Uncle), Ernie and Loretta Sinclair (Aunt & Uncle), I think there was a Jessie Barnes, he lived in the castle like house in Cameron ok, when I was a child. I am having trouble finding more family for this tree, so any help would be greatly appreciated. I appreciate all the work you have done thus far!
RE: Robert Edward Crook Thank you Eunice, I wanted to make sure to ask because I added some pictures when I first started Ancestry and did not ask people for permission and didn't know I was supposed to. It all looks public when you are new. Thank you for your reply and all the work you have done with our family!!! I can tell you have spent endless hours and have done a lot of work and research! Because of you, I have found family pictures of them and their memories, I would not have otherwise found or been able to enjoy!
