Juli Berrios
Hazel Barnard Whitman - corrections
Hi, I am Juli B. (Julia Lynn Whitman), the daughter of Hazel Whitman. Her middle name is Genevieve. She was the 10th of 11 children. Her older brother that is not on your list is Henry Gibson Barnard 1886-1972. Uncle Henry told me about Freddie, Marney and John. They all died before Mother was born. I believe Marney died in either an accident or a tornado when the family lived in Texas for a couple of years. John was either an infant or a toddler when he died from an illness. I have no dates for either one. I commend you for the information you gathered even though you do not know our family.

Harbison and Hobson Cemetery, Abbeville
Hi! I saw that you've got memorials in both Harbison and Hobson Cemetery in Abbeville. Do you know if these are these actually the same cemetery? A friend went to what she thought was Hobson today (at Greenville St and Highland Terrace) but I'm seeing that a few of the photos she got memorials of are listed as being in Harbison on both this site and in their death certificates.

Thanks very much for any information!

Edit for John B. Strickland
I would like to edit the birth year for this person to 1891, I put the wrong date in (1880).

I have three census records (1920, 1930, 1940) that all list him as born about 1891, by his age at the time of these census.

I know that his death cert and the obit list him as born in 1880, but I have some family records that indicate otherwise.

Robert Harrison Winn
The photo on this page is not Robert Harrison Winn. There is an article I have seen that indicates it is but I have same photo and my grandmother, Nina Ellis Winn, wrote on the back that it is John Hagan,maternal grandfather of her husband, John Robert Winn. John Hagan was married to Martha A Nickles. Lizzie Hagan was married to William Calvin winn and were the parent of my grandfather John Robert Winn. I do have a picture given to me of Robert Harrison Winn. It was given to me by the family of Martha A. Nickles. It is on Ancestry.com.
