|Bio and Links|
I've been hit by the genealogy bug! I love to get information, photos, stories or etc. about my extended family. I started a family tree on Ancestry and have found out so much and have found relatives I would of otherwise never known. That is why I am a volunteer photographer, which is my trade and what I love to do. I know what others feel when they receive their information. It makes the work I do the most rewarding of all.|

|Carol Hamner||RE: dates|
Thank you for your message about Frank Atkins' dates. November 7th is the correct date; it is wrong on his marker. According to his daughter (who has a copy of the death certificate), the family has talked with the cemetery about having it corrected, but there is some kind of problem because it is a military marker. They continue to work on getting the change made.
|Elaine Floyd||RE: Emily Bonifay Clements|
Thank you so very much. When I started doing my family research (almost 10 years ago) I nearly went crazy when I would come across old documents that matched everything but the name. Then a wise and experienced pro told me that I had to allow for the different countries that came through and set up "housekeeping" and each one would tell the settlers that they had to swear an oath to whatever king or queen there was. He told me a person's name would appear on legal records in the language of the occupying country.
Whew! What a mess! But I know you are much more experienced at this sort of thing and I'm sure you see it all the time. Anyway, Thank you again Donna, for all your hard work and dedication.
|Elaine Floyd||Emily Bonifay Clements|
Thank you for all your hard work! I would like to correct something though. My grandmother, Emily Bonifay Clements father is listed as "Mitchell Bonifay". Actually his name was Michel. He was the grandson of Mariana Bonifay of Pensacola, Florida. I found during my family research that as the countries that occupied Alabama changed so did his first name. It appears as Michel, Michael, Mitchell and Miguel depending on which document your reading at the time, but his REAL name was Michel.
Thank you again for all your hard work.

Hi Donna.. I was married to Jerry Borden son of Talmadge Borden.. I got alot of old photos from my ex-mother-in-law..I don't think there were any of Dolly.. but there was some of John Jackson and Etna and John Jacks bothers and sisters.. I have them on ancestry.com... if you have not seen them. Give me your e-mail. I will send them to you. Thanks, Sue
Hi! I'd love to add them, Donna... but I don't manage the memorials for John Tanner's children. You'll have to request the links to be added through those who do manage those memorials. I've already sent suggestions for that to be done (ages ago). Sorry! Are you also a descendent?

|Barbara Johnson||RE: JOHN JACKSON BORDEN|
John Jackson Borden was my grandfather. He and Dolly were married and raised several children(including my father). She was young when she died and I never knew her or any of her family. I have found some info on ancestry.com. My father had twin sibblings. The little boy only lived a few months. They lived in Franklin or Marion Co., Al when he died but I can't find where he was buried. the little girl was buried at Hubbard Salem Cemetary in Tishomingo County, Ms. beside Dolly. My grandfather later married Etna Phelps and was buried beside her in Oakgrove Cemetary in Iuka, Ms. They had two children.
I didn't know exactly what you wanted to know. Hope this helps.
