Sorry for your loss,

Record shows Ella is the daughter of William Henry Haley and Camelle Herman Cushman Haley, but according to the 1900 census William is her brother. Her parents are James Alexander Haley and Margaret Haley both buried in same cemetery. I just sent in to connect records.

I was so impressed to see all of the research you have done on the family. I submitted a correction to Laura's middle name. It is Aurelia. I have so
many questions about the entire family. I know there are lots of you in Columbia. I also found a picture of her mother Mollie that was uploaded by a family member in Tullahoma, TN.

Burkett B Rager, Cox Cemetery
Hi Dave,

I have recently started researching my family genealogy and have found the information you have listed here on Burkett B Rager. My mother is a Rager and her grandfather's name was Burkett. I was wondering where you got the information you have here, because I'm thinking there may be somewhat of a mix-up. The Burkett that is buried in Cox Cemetery had a headstone provided for Union Civil War Vets between 1879 and 1903. The Burkett that was married to Nanny Duke died in 1930 in Drakesboro Kentucky. I have been unable to find his grave, but I believe one in Cox Cemetery is a different Burkett Rager. I know there have been several Burketts in that family line over the years and I'm still having a hard time reconciling. Any insights you have would be helpful. Thanks.

Hi Dave,
I was hoping you had some more information on the Gortney's. JB Gortney was born Ollie Neal. He was my great grandfather. He left his wife and 7 kids and changed his name, got remarried and had 6 (I think) more kids. Just wondering if you were related or had more info.
Thanks. Dana
