Bio and Links
Bio Photo At the age of 39, I fell into the Ancestry addiction. I wanted to know the roots of my family to pass down to my children so they can pass it down to the future generations to come.

My roots are: Beal, Burke, Garner, & Hale of Guilford/Chatham County, North Carolina. Bailey's of Lancaster, South Carolina. Beals and Marshall of Annapolis/Inglisville, Nova Scotia, Canada. Bowen, Butts of Warren/Providence/barrington Rhode Island. Lawson, Mallett, Goins, Minor, Burton, trent and Murrell of Hawkins/Hancock County, Tennessee. Elder and Meyers(myers) of Virginia. Crafton, White and Martin of Arkansas.

Digging up all this information on my family has been very rewarding to me. It feels great finding out the stories/information and talking about them with my father.
I am a spouse of a soldier in the U.S. Army. We move around often but I do miss the sights of the east coast and my family.
I am hoping through this website, I can meet other people in my family lines.

Kathryn, I came across a grave of a Laura Lawson while taking photos of a cemetery for a friend. Laura's stone was under a holly tree. She was almost 22 when she died. I got to wondering who she was, so I started looking. I came across a Laura Lawson living with a Nancy Jane Burton in Hawkins County Tn. real close to the Hancock County Tn. cemetery that Laura is buried in. I found your Frances and Nancy Mallet Burton and believe it could be the Nancy that Laura was living with in 1900. I see your Nancy has a middle name of Ann and the Laura Lawson Nancy has a middle name Jane but everything points back to your Nancy. I see that one of Nancy's daughter married a Lawson. The 1900 census has Laura listed as servant, but now I think she may have been a granddaughter or related to her daughter's Lawsons. Do you have any info on Laura? Do you think I might be on the right track?
Thanks Mark

John Robert Burke
Hi, I'm trying to figure out how you connected John to the James E. Burke in Chatham County, I have his will and he named all of the living children in this will and your John Robert is not named ..please provide your data to link him to this James E. Burke ...I have been researching the Chatham County Burkes since 1996 and have not found anything to link them . Thank you

Glad that you were able to update. I can empathize with your communication disconnect. Minus the high-tech method, I and family experienced a similar telephone situation during my 3 years at Sembach AB in the late 60s.

Are you still active? I sent an EDIT on Eula Beal Andrews memorial five weeks ago with no response. Her husband was Alvis Vernon Andrews. Married 17 Jul 1943, divorced 13 Jun 1950. No children. His memorial is #60341409. All data found in newspapers. Contact me if you want to confirm.

Hi Kathryn...Francis is my 2nd cousin. I'm sorry, but I don't know where he's buried, but I assume somewhere in Hancock, TN. As you know his son Francis Jr is buried in the Burdine-Bowlin cemetery in Camelot, Hawkins, TN. If I ever come across something I'll let you know!

Effie McIntosh Beal
Hi- thanks for the additional information on the other Effie Beal. I have found her burial location and have linked her with Thomas. She lived to age 95 and never remarried.

Thomas E Beal
Hi- updating and linking people buried in Proximity. I have a Thomas E Beal 1870- 1937 whose death certificate says he was married to Effie Beal. Effie Beal's memorial says she was married to J Beal. Do you know which is which?

Martin Crafton
Oh, meant to ask about a Martin Crafton that I see only in the 1910 census living on the other side of Gerome's parents household. Don't see him on the 1900 census so was wondering if he is a brother or what. Plus can't find Gerome in 1920 but do see a Martin Crafton in Dickens county Texas where Gerome later shows up in the 1930 census I think.

RE: G T Crafton
You're welcome. By the way, it's White county that I'm researching in AR concerning my Brock's most likely as no other branch traces to there except for a couple of brothers-in-law (Tom and Woodrow Jacobs, teachers) that moved to AR with them for awhile around Wilson and Tyronza) according to stories. It must have been between census years though.

Do you have a family tree on I contacted someone Patagay1234 that has the Crafton and extended families on their Groceman family tree. They have in 1920 I think Luna's sister living in "Big Springs/Barren" Fork in Izard county AR but the census record just says Big Springs and they aren't that close are they?

My grandfather, John who was orphaned when Sam died around 1915 went to live with the Bruce Ball family who in 1920 was in Big Springs and later Batesville. Evidently he was a used car salesman around there in the 1950's (Bruce that is) My grandfather moved around a lot and lived in Sidney too as well as Beebee and Searcy too. My grandfather was a self-taught Barber and opened a shop somewhere probably in the 1920's.

He talked about the Water Carnival and boat races that they had on the White River and how celebrities like Bing Crosby would show up back in the 1930's.

Oh, almost forgot I do have some Pollard relatives around Dewitt/Suttgart too.
