Bio and Links
My grandfather instilled my love of family history in 1979. While visiting during Christmas break, he opened a chest and showed me pictures, letters, diaries and family group sheets he had been compiling for more than 40 years. I am overwhelmed thinking of the many hours he spent writing letters and visiting town halls and cemeteries searching for his family members. I am honored to continue his work. Most of my ancestors lived in New England. Thanks to this site, I have found distant cousins across the country. I am grateful to the contributors to this site who have given me the opportunity to see my relative's gravesites. Please feel free to contact me if we have a family connection.

Memorial # 13969828

I've "linked" Rebecca to husband W. L. Ingram, as you requested, although I had already stated that he was her husband in the bio section.

Please reformat the "flower" you left on her memorial, as I have included your info in the bio section of her memorial. Do you have a primary, or secondary source for this info?

RE: Franklin Thompson
Hi Cynthia,
I descend from Franklin Thompson's daughter, Susan Sarah "Sallie" Thompson who married G.C. Garrett. Their son Greenlee Thomas Garrett was first married to Elizabeth E. Pickett, 2nd married to Josephine Butler. I am the 2nd great granddaughter of Lillie Garrett Brown, daughter of Greenlee Thomas Garrett & Elizabeth E. Pickett. Have I confused you enough? How do you descend from the Thompson family? Looking forward to hearing from you.

RE: John Grant
Hi Cynthia, my name is Ava. I am John Lunsford Grant's granddaughter. My father Darrell Wayne Grant was his youngest son. My granddad died in 1953 in Streetman, Texas and is buried in Birdston, cemetary. He was in his 70,s. J. Grant's parents were Susan Caroline (Scroggens)Grant and Daniel Webster Grant. They are my great grandparents. Daniel Grant was from Columbus, Ga. a civil war veteran & former prisoner of war veteran @ Appomattox, Va. His father was murdered and Daniel Grant was raised by relatives. After the war he met his wife Susan Caroline Scroggins of Alabama & they traveled from Mobile, Al across the Gulf by steamboat and settled in East Texas, near Post, Texas. I believe they had 2 daughters, one of whom married a Mr. Cherry. My granddad was John Lunsford and he had a brother named Thomas Grant. I actually have photos of them including Susan Scoggins, her daughters and both sons. I also have my parents, etc. if you would like more history and photos. I hope the info helps you. I look forward to hearing from you again. Sicerely, Ava (Grant).
