Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a lawyer, living in Albuquerque and working in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I am researching the descendants of James R. Walker from Mecklenburg, North Carolina; the descendants of Julius Jones from (probably) Mecklenburg; the English family from Ohio to Oklahoma and beyond; the Simmons family out of Denison, Texas; the Stewarts from Bienville Parish, La.; the descendants of John Wood of Bolton, Lancashire, England who emigrated to Rock Island, Illinois; the descendants of Nicholas Knapp who came with the Saltonstall Fleet in 1630; and many others. I still work full time and am a recent grandfather, so my time to help is limited, but if I can do it, I certainly will.

RE: Poe/Shipman
The only things more I've noticed are that Hollis is not buried by her parents, and that Gertrude Shipman's SS card was issued in California.

Hollis Raines' will shows a W. R. Wimberly as the plantiff...a creditor?...but dismissed for lack of prosecution.

RE: Poe/Shipman
wow...Hollis has been much more difficult to find ANYthing on than 99.9% of those I've tried, and I still cannot locate her as a child. Will have to put her on a list to find an obituary for whenever I might actually go to the physical library. Gertrude's Poer brothers do not have online obits either.

You know, Alfred, I'm starting to think that Hollis Raines was the son-in-law of Gertrude Poe Shipman rather than her daughter who is always refered to as "Mrs. Hollis Raines." I can find nothing in the censuses (specifically 1920 & 1930) for a girl named Hollis with mother Gert*, but all are boys. And, unfortunately, Hollis Raines died in a year that is not online to check for her/his own obituary. And since I researched her about seven years ago, I cannot remember the records (which seem to be missing from online databases now) I found for this family back then. No trees entered in give a first name for a man named Raines who Hollis may have been married to, either...but I'll keep looking.
