|Caroline80126||Davison - Waters connection|
We have been in touch before. You were looking into William F. Waters. I am related to William's wife Lura (Davison). Lura's uncle Edward B Davison, b. 1822 - d. 1906 is my ggggg grandfather. My tree on Ancestry is Mason - Woodhouse.

The books, Cimarron Family Legends, were written by people and their descendants that lived in early day Payne, Lincoln, and other surrounding counties that were near the Cimarron River here in Oklahoma. The books have no index for names in them, so it took some time to try and find the Waters' name. I spent several hours and was not able to find anything written down about that family. If I should come across the name in any other stories, I'll remember to send it to you.
|Sheldon||RE: Frank Leslie Dunn|
I am a direct descendant of your Great Grand Uncle, Horace Dunn. My father was Seldon C. Dunn, son of Lewis and Estelle Dunn, son of Horace and Susie Dunn. So, we are related. Lewis is the one who abandoned the family and Horace supported GM Estelle and Dad, in addition to GM getting a job with the IRS.
I have been living in Germany since 2000 since all of my work has been outside the US since then - Pakistan, Bulgaria, Bosnia, Serbia and 3 times in Afghanistan since 2006.
Our family has been pretty much California-based since Dad's time in the Navy.
Through RootsWeb, I have found information that our line goes back through to Hugh Dunn (the Senior) who came over from England around 1640 to NJ. The family then went to Ohio and then to Kansas, primarily Wichita. There were four more Hugh Dunns. It seems that the family re-used names very often, many times in following generations. No surprise with the infant and youth mortality.
But, I am new to genealogy, having only gotten into it in the last month or twowhen I first found Find A Grave. Our thanks goes to Bill Pennington and Joe Gibbons and many others who have gone through the cemeteries and entered our families.
I have just had several boxes of family photos and such sent from my mother's in San Diego to Sonoma Co. for the next time I am back there. I will be scanning them and trying to organise them further.
If you look at my profile on F.A.G. you will find other Dunn memebers who I have had transferred to me. If you wish, I would be happy to transfer Frank Dunn to you since he is your direct line.

I'm not related to your GreatGrandmother that I know of. I place flowers on each memorial that I visit. I cannot seem to locate the memorial for...Addie Belle Waters, has it been removed?

I found that photo by chance and it's the only one I've seen but if you dig you might find another.
Wish I could help.

Sorry, I haven't logged in in a long time. Jordon Cemetery is not a dump, but it is severely neglected
