Bio Photo Greetings,

I have been researching my Family Surname Lines since 1965 and have collected many documents on:

My Lewis line back to Robert Lewis (1790 NC - bet. 1850-60 AL)and Sarah Cagle Lewis (1790 NC - 1850 AL), who came from NC to TN to Marshall Co., AL where they settled. They are buried at Lewis Cemetery in Marshall Co., AL, which was originally the old family cemetery. My Lewis line was entered into the Lewis DNA Project many years ago and results can be found there. They were early settlers of Marshall County, Alabama. Recent update: Robert Lewis (1790 NC - bet. 1850-60 AL) is the son of John C. Lewis (1740 Halifax County, VA-1830 Spotsylvania Co., VA) and Elizabeth (Lax) Lewis (Born 1745 Halifax Co., VA.

My McDonald Line back to James McDonald (1800 TN-1890 AL), who's father came from Scotland and was in TN before or by 1800. James McDonald came to AL. He married Miss Nancy Starnes, in 1820 and at that time, they settled and lived the rest of their lives in Henryville, Marshall Co., AL. They had Ten Children, and this families history has been richly documented and proven. James McDonald (1800 TN - 1890 AL) and his wife, Nancy Starnes McDonald (1803 TN - 1870 AL) and other family members are buried at McDonald Cemetery in Marshall Co., AL, which was the original family cemetery. James McDonald (1800 TN - 1890 AL) was one of the first settlers in Marshall Co., AL.

My Starnes line from Peter Starnes "Alabama Pioneer"(June 01, 1781 SC - Apr 13, 1852 AL), who came from TN to Marshall Co., AL with his wife, Mary "Polly" (Roden) Starnes and their children , including their single daughter, Miss Nancy Starnes, who married James McDonald (1800TN - 1890AL). Peter Starnes line follows back to England.

My Stanfield Line back to John Stanfield (1755-56 to 1805SC) "Revolutionary Soldier", and Sarah (Roberts) Stanfield (1757-1857),my Stanfield Line came from SC to GA to North AL.

My Ashley Line back to John R. Ashley (1820SC) and Laura Anna Pruitt (1925SC) who came to North Al from SC.

My Gober line back to William Gober, I (1718 VA - 1794 NC)and Nancy Meekin Gober (Apr 16, 1720 England - Dec 12, 1785 NC);

My Durham Line back to Young Marcus Alexander Hezikiah Durham (1823NC-1900GA) and Mariah Elsberry Durham (1828GA-1898GA)came from NC to GA and my line to North AL. Young Marcus Alexander Hezikiah Durham's Grandfather follows back to Matthew Durham (1730NC - 1795NC).

My Evans Line back to Henry Evans (1827GA-1917GA) and Nancy E. Smith (1839GA-1921GA).

My Harris Line back to Washington "W.W." Harris (1818SC-1902AL) and Elizabeth Webb Harris (1820SC-1908AL), who came from SC to North AL. Our Harris line was entered into the DNA project many years ago and update on lineage can be found there.
Washington "W.W." Harris (1818SC-1902AL) and Elizabeth Webb Harris (1820SC-1908AL) are both buried at Webb Cemetery, Etowah County Alabama. they were buried behind Elizabeth Webb Harris's Father, John Marshall Webb. The top of their grave marker headstone was broken off and it's parts were scattered near their burial site. The base of their grave marker headstone is still in place.

My other family lines are, Cagle, Weatherly, Gazaway, Sullivan, Ellis, Sitz, Elsberry, Caldwell, Lindsey, Barber, and others.

Benjamin Floyd Stanfield

Thanks for posting this info. Benjamin Floyd Stanfield is my gggf. You say that his and his 2nd wife Elizabeth's gravestones were moved. Do you have any more information, about where they were moved to or a source? --David

Gazaway line
I may have contacted you before, but am trying to find out if there is Native American in the Gazaway line. If you have any information on this would appreciate hearing from you. Thank you so much.

Again thanks.

RE: Iva Mourine (Patterson) McDonald

RE: Ruby Jo (Webb) Henry Huff
Thanks for making the changes. And good find on the probate record for Verdell David Henry. I had not seen that before.

I still can't figure out where Wesley Neal Huff's brothers Mike Norris and Ricky Norris fit into this family.

I sent you another suggested edit to make the same changes about Ruby's marriages on her mother's memorial.

RE: Adam & Lizzy Duncan
Hi again Judith, as usual I am needing some information. I contacted NEAGS and ask them about records of Adam and Lizzie Beth and have not heard back from them. Is there a way of contacting Dorthy Hill or Earnest Hill directly.
