RE: Susie Evans Trail
Hello Sherri,

I'm related to the Murray/Trail family and have no personal info on what I'm writing to you about but hope to help you in your information on Susie Evans Trail. A friend of mine who is the granddaughter of Ellen Evans Gross, who spent many summers with her grandmother in Smyth County and knew Susie Evans Trail well. She says that Susie Evans Trail's middle name is Caledonia after Caledonia Cline, sister of Perlina Sarah Cline Evans. She also says that the picture of the woman with the pipe on Susie's site is Caledonia Cline, sister of Perlina Cline Evans.

I hope this is of some help to you.

Hi Sherri,

Could you tell me how you are related to Susie Evans Trail? I'm doing some research and noticed that it had been transferred to you.

RE: FAG Transfer Request
Sherri I owe you a deep apology for taking so long to transfer your loved ones over to you. I have not been on the Find A Grave site in a long, long time. Today I found your request and did transfer the Jones, and Reynolds people you requested.

RE: Elizabeth Mims
Sherri, We are indeed cousins. Jordan Clinton and Elizabeth moved from Georgia. They were in Bell County Texas during 1860 census and moved back to North Louisiana. Jordan's parents Robert D Brooks, Robert was born in 1787 in Mecklenburg County, Virginia. He died July 16,1855 in Marion County Georgia. Robert's wife and mother to Jordan Clinton was Frances Sarah Baugh , She was born in 1791 in Brunswick, Mecklenburg County Virginia. Frances died in Talbot County, Georgia in 1843. Talbot County is where Jordan Clinton and Elizabeth was married. Robert's father was Jordan Brooks born in 1765 in Mecklenburg County, Va. He died April 1,1839 in Talbot County, Georgia. Jordan married Mary Cruise born in Mecklenburg, Va. in 1768. Mary died in 1807 in Putman County, Georgia. Jordan's father was Robert Brooks born in Mecklenburg County, Virginia in 1723.He died June 9, 1806 in the same county. This Robert was married to Brambly Bennett, born 1726 in Brunswick, Va. She died in Dinwiddie County, Va. That is what is documented. I have other records I am working on . I would love to see the pictures you have. My email address is: Your cousin , Laurie Brooks Seneca

Hi Sheri !! I was wondering if you have any information on Elizabeth or her husband Jordan Clinton. I have tried to find their graves for years and who Elizabeth's father and mother were. I see you have many of the Brooks family. I am descended from their son Alexander Jordan Brooks and Sarah Agnes Bouwel. Thanks for the help and I have a copy of their picture you have ,given to me in the 80's by Ruth Olney, daughter of Alice Brooks !!! Thanks again for all you do !! Laurie Brooks Seneca

Thanks so much. If found I would really be interesting in seeing the hospital records. I am seeing your photos on Find a Grave. Do you have a public tree on
As I am not a descendant of Thomas most of my searching is curiosity. I will try to share what I have found with my cousin, Agnes' daughter. I believe she is the only one left of the daughters of Grace & Thomas.

RE: Thomas Vitis Evans #74202461
The info I had was that he died in an asylum of encephalitis. Do you know if the records also had that diagnosis? The longest living and that was still in VA would have been my great aunt Agnes, I would assume that is whom you speak of. That is all I really knew about him, and that is from my aunt Lois the youngest of the children born after his wife remarried. I would be interested to have a copy of the certificate if you have a digital one. Did William's wife die in the asylum?

Did you get the photo through family? Do you have any others?

Thanks for sharing.

We happen to be in luck. This is for some reason, one of the few cemeteries I keep the original pictures and the down sized pictures. I have Bertie Brooks picture 1.59 mb. It cane be blown up and read easily. She is the daughter of R B and Nancy Jane Pipes Brooks. Glad I saved both sets of prints. If you would like a copy of this picture, send me your email and I will be glad to send it to you.

Lena Johnson photo request
Do you have a date of death or middle initial for her husband Carl? Is Lena's middle name Eula? I found a Lena Eula Johnson and a list of Carls. Just trying to narrow it down before heading out to the cemetery. Thanks.
