Bio and Links
My husband and I are working on the Beene, Richards, Summerall, Allbritton, Grayson, Gilliam, and Hardee families and the related ones as well. Our families came from Buffalo and Teague areas of Texas from South Carolina through Mississippi and Lousiana. We have hit a brick wall on the Richards and the Summerall families. We just keep plugging away.

Would you please check the dates for Thomas Luke Shirley. At the present, 3 April 1948 is given as both his birth and death dates. I think he was born sometime between 1860 and 1863. Thank you, Carol Hamner

Hello, Gail-
I wonder if you could verify the spelling of the surname of this person showing to be buried at Salem Cemetery. Salem records show it to be William Mandeville. Thanks!

Several corrections and a request for transfer of my paternal Great-grandfather, George Clinton Emmons, have not been acknowledged. Can I provide you with additional information or answer any questions that you might have regarding these corrections and/or transfer? Thank you for your consideration and many postings for others. Blessings to you and your family.

Hello, I don't know if you know about the new edit button to be used instead of sending a written page. I sent a couple of edits to you and I wanted to make sure you knew about the button since many people don't.

Thank you,

Holland Lindsey #28026538
This is Bazzel Lee Holland Lindsey, b 1832 Alabama, d 1 May 1891, Teague, Freestone Co. TX, married 4 Dec 1856 Itawamba Co. MS to Harriet Calfernia Seward (#28026530). Family history stated they were both buried Salem Cemetery, south of Teague, Freestone Co. TX, without markers. Harriet Calfernia Seward Lindsey was age 60, widow, on 1900 census Freestone Co. TX. Pct 2, ED 33, #257-256, with 3 children still living with her. She had 10 children, 5 of which are living in 1900. Bazzel Lee Holland Lindsey 1832-1891 was son of James Owen Lindsey (1798 Spartanburg Co. SC - 1853 Itawamba Co. MS) and Rachel (Franklin) Lindsey (1803 NC - aft Sept 1860 Itawamba Co.

Nancy A. Lindsey #28026545
Gail, I believe I've made an error, too. I believe, first of all, that Nancy A. Lindsey, b 15 Sep 1849, died 1869, if you look at the very bottom of the tombstone. Also, the photo of the tombstone is captioned "died 1869." However, I believe I was in error in stating that this woman was the wife of Jacob Thompson Lindsey.

I think the wife of Jacob Thompson Lindsey is "Mrs. N.A. Lindsey" #28026544, b 1844, d 15 June 1927. The dates for her match the dates the family has for Nancy Ann Baisdon, wife of Jacob Thompson Lindsey. I have discovered that Jacob Thompson Lindsey had a SISTER Nancy Ann, b 1849 Miss., never married. This is the Nancy A. Lindsey #28026545. Still, her death date needs to be changed to 1869 rather than 1969. Thanks so much..

Tombstone reads wife of MICAJAH, which is spelled incorrectly in bio section. Please correct.

Nancy A Lindsey #28026545
Must be gross error; she could not have been born 1849 and died 1969, at age 120! I believe this must be Nancy Ann (Baisdon), wife of Jacob Thompson Lindsey b 1851 MS; She is widow on 1900 Freestone Co. TX census, Pct 2, ED33, pg 14B, #261-261. Also she is widow, age 65, on Apr 1910 Freestone Co. TX census, Pct 2, ED 17, pg 9B, #182-187 with sons and niece in household. Her spouse died between 1880 and 1900.(The 1900 census gives her birth as May 1844, but these are frequently in error. She's age 34, born Alabama, on the 1880 census Freestone Co. TX, with spouse Jacob Thompson Lindsey (son of Micajah Lindsey b 1824) age 28, and son Micajah F., age 7.

Is there any way to examine tombstone again and verify death date? I just cannot believe she lived to be 120 and no one in the family is aware of such.

Somehow his birth/death dates are reversed and messed up. He was born 9/29/1850 in Talladega, Talladega County, Alabama-died 11/13/1943 in Teague, Freestone County, Texas
