Bio and Links
Bio Photo Your tombstone stands among the rest;
neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
on polished, marbled stone.
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
you died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
in flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
one hundred years ago
spreads out among the ones you left
who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you knew
that someday I would find this spot,
and come to visit you.

I don't remember what you asked me about the family not long ago. But, I've just gone through all of your info. on the family on this site. My connection to the family is through Mary Jane (Dalton) Monroe who was married to my relative Mack Monroe. She was my Great Great Aunt-by-marriage. Mary Jane's parents were Wm. M. & Sarah (Elkins) Dalton. He was the brother of your ancestor John Dalton married to Goldie Collingsworth. Wm. & John were the sons of Wm. & Maria (Schrader) Dalton.

Wm. & Maria (Schrader) Dalton had John Dalton who had Wm. Henry Dalton who had Lena May (Dalton) Sullivan who had your parent.

RE: Celeste White
I'm sorry, you are correct (of course). I was giving the information from the top of my head and I left a generation out. I apologize to Richard.

Again thank you so much for the picture. It's so great.

Sincerely,

Kakoz

RE: Celeste White
My father is George William DeBord. His mother was Grace Davis-DeBord. Grace's sister was Mary Celestine Davis-Gorst. Mary's daughter was Myrtle Gorst Boyer and her daughter was Celeste (Celestine) Boyer White. Grace died when my Dad was 18 months old so he grew up not knowing anything about his mother or her family. He passed in 2005 before I could help figure it all out for him, so now I try to keep up with it in his honor.

It's still all so interesting to me and he would have been awed at it.

Thank you so much for the use of the picture.

Sincerely,

Kakoz

This is my Dad's 2nd cousin 1x removed, and I am wondering if I can use the picture of her headstone on my ancestry.com tree. I would give you credit for the picture.

Sincerely,

RE: Katie Dotson Huddleston
Thanks Missy! I added a photo of Rufus and Katie. I never met them, I was born in 1958, but some of my older siblings remember them. I don't have any information about the Dotsons, sorry. Have you ever heard any stories about Rufus and Katie's son Luther? I believe he died at a young age, I'm not sure when or how. He was listed in the 1900 census as Ben L. then in 1910 as Luther. My mom did mention my dad's brother Luther once. I read an usual story a genealogist had documented about Katie cutting a finger off "in the Indian way" when she lost a child. My mom couldn't remember one of her fingers being gone. I think she may have been part native American so I'm wondering if there is any truth to the story. There was also mention of being on the way to some salt mines when his death occurred.My dad was William Allen Huddleston, Rufus and Katie's oldest son.I am the youngest of his 19 children. He was 72 when I was born. Thanks again.

Hi Missy,
My name is Thelma Huddleston Aldrich. Rufus and Katie Huddleston were my grandpa and grandma. I was just wondering if you have any information on Grandma, I'm assuming you're somehow related.Any information you have would be appreciated. Thanks
