|Bio and Links|
I have been researching my family lines since 1995.|
My dad's paternal family lines came to Texas in the 1890's from the Tennessee Valley state-line area of Limestone Co., AL/Giles Co., TN. Surnames include Hasting(s) aka Hasten, Hargrove(s)/Hargrave(s), Holt, Meadows, Nelson, Browning, Vernon. Daddy's maternal families came to Texas from Calhoun/Randolph Co., AL. Surnames include Browning, McCollum, Perry, Noel, and Morris. Many of Daddy's ancestors were in Jamestowne, Virginia before 1700.
My mom's maternal families are primarily of German, Cherokee, Scots-Irish and English descent. Most of her ancestral lines immigrated to America in the 1600's or early 1700's. Her most notable American cousin is President (General) George Washington. Her lines also include my most "modern" immigrant, William Winkler and his father-in-law Michel Zerr, both of whom arrived in America, via Port of New Orleans, in the 1850's. Other surnames in her direct lineage include Blanton, Boone, Cook, Sturdivant, Keller, Mills, Crenshaw, Green, Lane and Ball.
Mom's gg-grandfather, Joseph R. Boone and his wife Virginia E. M. Crenshaw were living in Fannin Co., TX in early 1840's qualifying desc. for Daughters of Republic of Texas. Virginia Crenshaw's ancestral lines include Mary (Patti) Ball, a cousin to George Washington. Contrary to family lore --(passed down for 4 plus generations) -- initial DNA studies indicate that Joseph R. Boone was not related to the famous frontiersman Daniel Boone. Joe Boone's maternal grandfather was John Christian Reis (aka Rice or Reese), a German Hessian solder, captured at the Battle of Trenton by Washington's troops. Johann deserted the Hessian Army and fought for the American Patriot cause (in both the Army and Navy). He also served his adopted country in the War of 1812.

So sorry for your loss. My husband's sister, age almost 93, died earlier this month and my brother, age 98 yrs 2 mos 2 days died yesterday.
I know about catching up. I am in the process of updating the Charles Blanton book. It is amazing how much happens in a 5-10 year period.
|Evelyn Pipkin||Burns Cemetery|
Ruth, information that I have received from Robert Stafford indicates that Claud Malachi Blanton is the so of William Howell & Alice V. Nicholson Blanton. Find A Grave shows his father as Lemuel. Which is correct?

Thank you so much for the obituary information. I added it to Mr Bates bio but did not include living members names for privacy and security concerns. Take care - Cindy

I added as much data to his and his wives memorials. I'll add the bio data as soon as I can get to my computer
|David Sifford||Elmer Kilpatrick|
You could be right about the middle initial for Elmer but my source, which is a booklet provided by the funeral home in Paducah and lists the burials in Garden of Memories, gives H. as the middle initial. I guess the only way to know is to get a pic of his marker. My motto is "When in doubt, go with what is on the marker".
