Harris Family Tree Research
Dear Mrs. Itschner,

My firm is researching the Title (ownership) of a tract of land in Chavez County, New Mexico. The Heirs of Charles Wesley Jones from Jack County, Texas own a minority interest. My Client currently has 3 public utility easements crossing the land. We are updating the files and it was first researched over 40 years ago, 1972. Since the first research, the Heirs have considerably changed and grown.

Our research has reached out to many of the remaining Heirs in the past few months but we are still missing key branches in some of the Family Trees. In addition, there is a chance may have the wrong members placed in the wrong Family Tree. Today, most of our research data is electronically produced and is very powerful but it does not always give us a true picture. We have many recorded documents supporting our data but it is individuals like yourself we count on to piece all the information together.

We have identified many of the Collies, Jones and some of the Harris'. If my research is accurate, you are the granddaughter of Sara Marie Harris and Paul Bradford and I was hoping you would be able to help me out with some of the missing information from the Harris Family Tree.

I would be happy to share with you the information I have gathered. I look forward to hearing from you.
Very Best,
Eva Temby

RE: Charles Wesley Jones
Gail,
How special to hear from a descendant of Granny Collie's sister, Sara Jeanette! We had hunted her footsteps after she left "the valley" in south Texas but the trail grew cold until one of Granny Collie's granddaughters, Joann Collie, remembered she had visited Granny Collie's sister, Aunt Sallie, in the Fort Worth, Texas, area years before. We found her death record in the Tarrant County Courthouse and were susprised to learn she was living and died near the Hurst area where we eventually lived for over 35 years. Clues for the search come from unexpected sources and places! Even more strange, Gail, is the fact that our dear Joann Collie (Vernon) died this morning in Ft. Worth and will be buried in the little Cemetery where her great grandparents, John Wesley Jones and Margaret Jane Moran are buried. Our ranch home is just down the road from the cemetery and we are leaving in the morning to join the family for her service in the cemetery.
Gail, I think the best way to answer your questions and welcome you to "the family" is send you a copy of the historical cookbook I compiled several years ago after we had hosted ten years of reunions at our cabin in New Mexico. It was a way to pass family history on to the descendants. it will answer many of your questions and has a lovely photo in it of Margaret Jane Moran Jones!! Granny Collie's grandchildren and their families are very, very close. We often had over a hundred show up at the reunions. Welcome to the family, Gail. Will be spreading the word about finding you when we see then at the cemetery. Just need your mailing address and will send a cookbook as soon as we return. Sorta have warm fuzzies in my heart over this.
A family welcome and our love to you,
Blanche

RE: Charles Wesley Jones
Hi Gail,
Charles Wesley Jones is my husband's great grandfather. John's sister (now deceased) and I researched that line. His daughter, Emma Tennessee Jones Collie, is their grandmother and I knew her well (and loved her dearly). Years ago, we traveled extensively following our Charles Wesley's footsteps - Dallas County, MO, Walnut Ridge, Lawrence County, AR (where his father, John Jones, is buried and has a memorial on Find A Grave, and much info in courthouse), Hunt County, and Jack County, Texas, Chaves County, NM and back to Cundiff. At the time, we were weekend ranchers and still have the ranch down the Crafton Rd about a half mile from Cundiff Cemetery. We too, found two Charles Wesley Jones in AR, both served in the Civil War (other one buried in Miller County, AR?) .We thought they were probably distantly related.
Someone else had ordered the military marker for our Charles Wesley in Cundiff Cemetery and provided the service information on it. We wondered if it was correct and thought the military records of the two men needed to be sorted out. More service information is available now. Maybe you can fill that gap. John and I are in our 80s, made a recent move and have boxes (including research records) still unpacked.
Curious to know which of Grandpa Jones' children is your ancestor. Nice to hear from kin.
Sorry can't be of more help right now.

RE: Indian Mills Cemetery
Hi,
Some online folks have called it Indian Creek Cemetery. It is at the confluence of Bradshaw Creek and Indian Creek. On the map of Monroe Co., WV, look first for Rt. 2 which runs north-south. Find the town of Red Sulphur Springs. Just north of there is a road going off to the west, C27, which turns into CR33. I don't remember how many miles we traveled on the road (it's paved, I think all the way). The cemetery was up on a hill on the left side, houses across the street. If I remember correctly, the best way to find it is have someone looking back left over your shoulder in order to see the cemetery sign. I was only there once, and that was about 8 years ago. I live about 800 miles from there, so I doubt I will return soon. Many graves are unmarked, according to another researcher. When I was there, it was about 90 degrees and the mosquitoes were attacking, so I didn't stay long. I took a picture of James Halstead's grave and his son or daughter (can't remember).

Powers - Hammond Cemetery
Gail, you are welcome. I also took time to clean the stone for Helen and Louise their infant daughters and posted photos to their memorials along with their death certificates that show their full name, birth and death dates. I sent a request to the contributor that manages their memorials and ask them to link them to their parents.
