I know you have done a lot of work on the Durham Family Line. I think I can help you with a few names and make a few corrections on some. My data is 100 percent correct as these people were My family at my age I even knew a few . My mother was Mary Julia Durham she is 94yrs and her sister is 103years. They are still sharp minded and have given me names of family members because they knew them. her father Edward Watson Durham Chatham county, N.C.. I have traced him back to Matthew Durham. Edward Watson Durham was born In Chatham Co. and he died in Chatham Co. ,N.C. -
My family lines on my Mothers side are Durham-Herndon-Riggsbee -Bennitt- my father was
Cuba Owen Matlock (Texas) but I have traced most of the family back to the first Matlock in America. Herndons-way back in England. I look for grave tombstones-church records bible records death /birth certificated / marriage records. well anyway I would like to share information

Neill Family in Taylor Co, TX
Edits just sent on the Neill family are from their death certs, these headstone appear to all have been set at the same time there by family members at a later date and they were guessing at the correct dates, some question as to whether America was even buried there?? Dates need to be edited and cleared up and a note in the bio as to where dates came from, Texas Death cert:
Thank you for your assistance

I would have sent this through the edit suggest button, but that is such a pain anymore, the Robot check box button doesn't work

James, I clicked on your link and was reading about your Paul Stafford Durham and his brothers service in the Marines. It struck me, I bet they never knew that they were serving with 2 brothers that were their cousins at those very battles. My great uncles both served in the marines in WWII and in Korea. I have an old news paper article that my grandma saved and it mentions both those battles. We are descendants of Cyril Durham. E Ferguson.

Memorial for Chester M Durham (56280816)

New (2015) developments on the burial locale for my uncle, Chester M Durham. Recently, US Army records have been declassified and made public, which reveal errors in his current findagrave biography. Please correct his place of birth to Jacinto, Dallas County, AR, as listed in his US Army enlistment records. Also, according to Missing Air Crew Report #11126, the B-17G was hit northeast of ZEITZ, Germany after dropping its bombs on the Brabag Synthetic Oil Plant. Chester M Durham's id tags were recovered in the plane's nose section at its crash site in the Forest Oberholz, near Gro▀p÷sna, Germany. The Germans buried his remains in the Gro▀p÷sna Cemetery and reported this location to the US Army in Jan 1945. lorelei1026

If you clear the request, maybe someone else can go out there to take a photo.

Thank you so very, very much,

adeana patterson
69963129 I have some correction if you dont mind,

The information that I have is that her name was

Sarah G Malme
she married widower James Franks Selman (this is the way we spell our name) in 1901 in McCulloch County.
She was his 3rd wife

The children list are two of her 6 step-children.
She married James Selman at the age 56 so that union did not produce any children.

I have not researched her as she is not of my blood line so she may have had other grown children, I do not know,

Jim, Evidently Eunice married twice after Mr. Cunningham died. SSN records list her as Eunice Temple and lastly listed as Eunice M. Daniel.

You have suggested adding an obituary for Winnie Mae but her memorial already has one from another paper. Did you want me add another one? If this is someone related to you would you prefer I transfer this to you?

Birth Location for Chester Mark Durham
Hi James, See you are still at tracking all of the Durhams in America. I was wondering where you obtained the information that Chester Mark Durham was born in Haskell County, OK? We previously have communicated about him and I am his niece. Even I, his closest living relative doing genealogy, cannot say with certainty that he was born in Haskell County, OK. Yes, his family did live there in 1910, but my father, his brother, was born in Dallas County, AR, in Jul 1917 and their father registered for the WWI draft in Dallas County, AR, in Sep 1918. So, I really would be interested in knowing the source for this birth location. Janine

Allen Straley
James - Thanks for the additional information on Allen Straley. I found an obituary on him and posted it. His date of birth said June 22. I think your edit was for June 20. If the obit is incorrect, please let me know. Also, do you know if the Edward Straley buried in Grace Lutheran Church, Two Taverns, Adams County are his parents? I see you are related to Straleys. Let me know if you wish a transfer. Once I started checking into this Allen, I realize his grandchildren were classmates of mine.
