I have been working on my family's genealogy since the 1980s. My research focuses on the Kelley, Renshaw & Latimer families in Texas and the Girling, Quin, Kaigler, Massey, Cansler, Bobo & Herrington families in Mississippi.|

Truely a quick reply. :) Mary Eliza Coulter was my great grandmother, Elizabeth Agnes Coulter's sister. Mary Eliza was born on her father, James Knox Coulters farm and died there during the 20th century (see family links on findagrave). Elizabeth and Mary Eliza's mother was a Hunt, daughter of James Jackson Hunt one farm over. The Massey's and the Hunts were intermarried and were cousins. Do you have any Hunt relatives?
When Mary Eliza died, her neice whom she raised after the death of her father took posession of the photos and kindly allowed me to photograph them. She died many years ago and I have no idea where the originals are now. Some of the unidentified may include Massey's, Hunt's, and Coulters. Do you have any idea where I could post some of these photos in hopes that someone may be able to identify some of these people? Some of them do have names on the back but I have been unable to locate any descendants.
So good to hear from you.

I suggest that you set up burial sites for John Sr and his wife as "unknown" for each of them, then use the Find A Grave numbers to connect their kids to them.
By doing this, you can "connect" the family.
Dawn, the number above you gave as Christian's number to add as a sister to O Harbour. Will be happy to change.
Are you part of the Harbour clan that is attending the Medicine Mound reunion Sat the 19th?
|Janet Mullins Ward||Re: NITTIE E PRINCE aka "Fair Nitie Elizabeth Kerby Hill Prince"|
Dawn, I received your suggested correction of the spelling of her name. May I ask your source for the correction? She is my great-grandmother, so I am also wondering if we are related.
The Memorial was recently transferred to me. I agree the tombstone doesn't have her name spelled correctly, but I have chosen not to change it yet. When I started doing family history research in the 1970's, I soon discovered her name spelled many different ways in marriage, divorce, and death records (not to mention census records which are often misspelled anyway). I have found Nitie, Nity, Fanity E. in various records. In my humble opinion, I'm not sure we can determine the "CORRECT" spelling of her name for a certainty. I remember her well, but I always called her "Grannie". Unfortunately, I never asked HER how to spell her full name. But she was called "Nitie" - pronounced "NI-tee" with the accent on the first syllable and with a long "i". Spelling it with a double "t" (Nittie) makes the pronunciation wrong as that would be a short "i" (as in "knit-tee") and that is not what anyone called her. I was disappointed to find the tombstone spelled that way. But even her own daughter Bertha (my grandmother) could not tell me for sure how her mother's full name was spelled, but she pronounced it "Fa-NI-tee Elizabeth". It may have been that she was named after her mother, Finetta (Roebuck) Kerby, but even Finetta's name is often spelled more than one way – ex. Finite, Finette, Finetta, and Nettie. Her tombstone includes only an initial "F" for her first name. They didn't make it easy for us, did they?
I do plan to add a bit more to both of their Memorials and may update the name later.
I look forward to hearing more from you and would welcome an exchange of information and opinions.

Thank you for letting me know about the listing. I found some new information I didn't already have on the family.
|Willa Cunningham||RE: Mary Ann Wood Cunningham|
Thank you so much for the memorials re my in-laws Herbert Thomas Cunningham Sr. and Mary Ann Wood Cunningham. And I appreciate the death certificate as I will copy it and put it with my records. I was thinking I would have to go to the courthouse in Benjamin Texas and get the certificate but now you have provided it..great!
By the way, Mary Ann was called "Jack" by everyone, not many people knew her real name as Mary Ann.
I will place pictures of Herbert and Mary Ann on their memorials. You may not have gone to Mattie Allene Wood Griffith's memorial as I placed a picture there. Mattie Allene was always thought to be somewhat mentally slow and I felt sorry for her as not having a pictue on her memorial. As far as I know her family never made many pictures of her, I had only one of her as a child so that was all I had.
RE the obituary for Mary Ann Cunningham which I have not been able to find. Thank you for suggesting I go to the library in Munday, Texas.
Thank you for all your hard work!

Claire has a beautiful memorial. Thank you for adding the note. Barbara
|Barbara Tynes Claiborne||Rogers in Texas|
Thank you so much for your contributions to our Rogers family, especially the photos. I spent years looking for Mary Katura Rogers Moore. I'm no longer able to travel to Texas to search for myself, so your service is invaluable. And thanks to you, not only is the Rogers family reunited in death, but living survivors are finding each other! Barbara Tynes Claiborne
If you do want transfers, it'll be a week or so.
Plenty of time for you to make a list and check it twice.
I'm heading out to Mom's and not taking a laptop.
