RE: James Luster Lawless
I am so sorry, am just now seeing your message. I will try to start checking to see if I have messages. As to your question, they were living near Marshall, Texas.
So it would be Greenwood Cemetery, Marshall, Harrison Co, Texas.

Hope this helps.

Phoebe Bryan McMinn
I see you have Phoebe Bryan McMinn having a daughter by the name of Pearl Louise. I am Phoebe's great granddaughter and I didn't know she had a daughter by that name. Phoebe's son, Oscar Leon, was my grandfather, and his daughter (My mother) was Pearl Louise McMinn. I was just wondering if this is correct info about Phoebe having a daughter by the name of Pearl Louise. I never remember my grandfather talking about that. I know my Mom and grandfather went to Indian Village and found his mother's grave and went to a Bryan reunion probably 40 years ago.

Hicks family
Do you happen to know if there are any other Hicks in this Cemetery, the Mt. Zion Cemetery in Panola Co. TX that might not be listed as of yet? The reason that I ask is that is because I am looking for Charles Monroe Hicks father, who was named Hijah Sylvester Hicks (also a civil war soldier) but have not found him nor his wife Martha Jane Hill-Hicks-Fortson, their final resting place. A lot of times people bury family together, and I haven't been able to locate them there. With Charles and Cora found that is great, but was looking to find Charles's parents and siblings as well.

John Luster Lawless
Per his Spouse. John was married before the spouse you listed.

Gussie Lenore Generelly. (she was my 1st cousin 2x removed.

Gussie was born Oct. 1884 in Arkansas and died Oct. 11, 1918 in Harrison Co, Texas. Burial: Greenwood Cemetery. (I have not found cause of death but think it could have been from child birth). Gussie married John Luster Lawless in 1917. I am sure he was married to her as I found a few records plus his brother James William was married to Gussie's sister Mabel.

John Luster listed Gussie as his wife on his WWI Reg. Registrar's Report is stamped 42-17-0 This was for the Reg..for WWi. The Texas Death record number for him is: 1103.

Thank you.

Katie Idelman Freeman #15548862
Hi Peggy,

I am working on my family genealogy which includes that of my late husband who died at age 34 in 1983.

Katie Freeman was my late husband's great-great grandfather Man Idelman's brother's daughter. I am always thrilled when I am able to trace women, as they can be so hard to find. I am surprised to see Katie in Louisiana as New Orleans was where my late husband and I met in college, and my late husband was from Boston. :-)

Katie came from a large family of 8 children. I still have one sibling yet to find, and of course it is a woman whose first name I do not know . . . yet.

I would be thrilled if you would transfer Katie's memorial to me so that I can add details to her memorial, and connect her with her parents and siblings.

Thank you for all that you do for those who have passed, and thank you for your consideration.

Waid Anderson & Sarah Bryan
One of Waid's and Sarah's children was Charity Bryan who married Christian Asbury Capers Herlong, my great-great-grandparents. I am sad that I cannot locate Charity's grave. I am 76 years of age and started my interest in genealogy rather late. Had I been interested at a younger age, I would have stomped all over the Calhoun area and adjacent parishes to find her. I wonder if her grave still exists, maybe it gone now. My sisters and I believe it is located on what is now a privately owned hunting ground/club in Ouachita Parish. It's probably not far from Herlong Lane or in that vicinity. It's sad that she was not included in any of the Ouachita Parish cemeteries that are listed. Would I love to know the story on that! She was the 1st marriage to CAC "Cap" Herlong. Of that marriage a daughter, Amanda Melvina "Mittie" Herlong was born, making her and her spouse, John Averett, my great-grandparents. Elizabeth Averett Buchanan, hometown West Monroe, LA, residing in Richardson, TX.

Brenda Custer Randall
Indian Village Cemetery
Hello, Peggy:

Would you please try to change Indian Village, Bryan (aka Bryan #1) and Bryan Family (aka Bryan #2) Cemeteries to Calhoun instead of West Monroe.

After upcoming CHS reunion 4/28 I'll be working on history of Calhoun, specifically cemeteries and families and would enjoy your input since you've done lots in the above plus Calhoun City Cemetery.

RE: Sallie and John Oliver Bryan
Hello, John Oliver and Sallie Bryan are my Dad's parents. The date of 1889 is correct for her death date. Just a mistake in my typing. I appreciate the info you have for John Oliver {Mann} Bryan. I believe I have found my grandfather with his birth mother and brother in an 1880 census. They were living with a family by the name of Cade. The mother was listed as a widow and a servant. John is listed as 7 months and his brother Willie as 9 years. Stephen Barlow Bryan lived down the road from this family. My grandfather was a grown man before he found out he was not a Bryan. My family has continued as Bryans. I named my youngest son Bryan Patrick. So while I would like to know more about the Mann family. We have been proud to be Bryan's.

Her son and her "nurse"
I am doing research on Ada Jack Carver's "nurse", Christine James, who took care of her son, David Snell, from the age of 9 until at least the age of 35. She died, at the age of 96, in Minden, Louisiana, but her life between 35 and 96 is mostly a mystery.
