Harris family (Marion co, AL) questions...

RE # 35477078 and # 35476967

This is not my direct line and I was trying to find
an A. D. Holman and her sister R. N. (maybe she
was Rebecca N.?) children of D. Holman and an

Anyway, they may've both married a Ballard. Although
the years are wrong, since Anzero seems to have been
married to Thomas C. Harris.

Anyway, when I found your Anzero (Holman) Harris
and husband Thomas in the Ballard Cemetery...

I wondered if you knew if 1) Anzero had a sister with
the initials R. N.? 2) If she, or they, married him? and
3) When R. N. passed and where she was buried?

Its a real long shot, so thanks for even thinking about it.
Thanks for your findAgrave work too.

Ann Elizabeth Wheeler Casson
I found the site for Thomas B Casson's wife Ann Elizabeth Wheeler Casson. It is Memorial# 100334673. I hope you can link him to his first wife. He was also married to Clara Walrath and Jennie/Jane Squires. I have not found their memorials yet. Thomas Casson is Find A Grave Memorial# 105271775.
Thank you,

Elizabeth Hopkins Casson
I'm writing because I believe you are incorrect about the maiden name of Elizabeth who married Thomas Casson. According to bible records, she was a Wheeler. I'm working on the Wheeler line and was confused by your inclusion of Elizabeth Hopkins was Thomas' wife. He was married three times. I believe Elizabeth Hopkins was the sister of Hugh Wheeler. She appears repeatedly in various census records with his family. 1855 NY census in Buffalo as Elizabeth Badger and then later after having married EL Hopkins and being widowed again. Just so you don't confuse folks, I thought we should talk about who she might have been.

Hubert Henderson Anglin
Hello, I was searching for my daddy's friend from WWII and was wondering if Mr. Anglin is him. The Hubert or Herbert Anglin would have been from Corinth, Mississippi during the time of the war. Thank you for any information you may have.
