RE: Mayfield Line
Great! If you would like to contact me at the e-mail address above, I'll give you my AncestryDNA info. We can at least check off one possibility.

RE: Mayfield Line

John Preston Mayfield (1845-1883) was my paternal great grandfather. He was the son of John Mack and Leanna Parker Mayfield. At that point, though, the trail evaporates. I've found records on both sides of the NC/SC line for John Mack Mayfield but nothing specific about his father. Have you taken any of the DNA tests? I've taken AncestryDNA and transferred to GEDmatch and FTDNA. I've found a few Mayfield cousins on lines that I'm aware of but nothing further back. Let me know if you learn anything additional.

Mayfield Line
You requested that I show the relationship between John Preston Mayfield and P. Elizabeth Nance. I was surprised that this had not been done previously. How are you related to this family? Linda

LS Lightner
Hi Patti,

Thanks so much for putting up all the Lightners a few years ago. You have LS Lightner as born 1892. If I blow up the photo you took, I think I get him as born 22 Feb 1874 and died 21 Sept 1892. Could I trouble you to take a second look and, if you agree, changing the listing/

RE: Link-62013348
The good news is that I'm about 60 miles from Denison, so I can try to search the Dallas Morning News for you, if I still have access to it. (I had access through my University, but I just graduated last month).

My Jacob is 1 of 9, one of which was named Edward, and was noted in his mothers' will to "disappear" in 1901. I think the others remained in the New England area, but I can't be sure. I would generally think that those who came to TX in the 1900s stemmed from OH, KS, NE, OK, as land was in abundance.

If you need anything, please feel free to e-mail me at hoefertree at gmail

No problem. These Links are my grandparents. How distant are you?

RE: Link -# 62013348
Hi. I don't know. I just visited the cemetery last week while on vacation, and there were not stones. We had difficulty finding the plot, and never came across this one. Seems like this is a photo of the plot the cemetery office gave.

Are you kin?

Hi Patti. I visited the cemetery shortly after it was cleaned up but found no stone at that time. Surviving legible markers are very few and far between. A list of burials has been compiled by another researcher and posted here includig their sources. Apparently, there was an obituary for him. You might contact a local library and see if they have the issue. :)
