Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing family research for 4 years. I love history and doing research. I am searching the surnames of Cox, Wyrick, Lee, Edwards, Elmore, Dotson, Hanson, Warden, Briggs, Smith, Barksdale, Anderson, Nelson, Finstrom, Rundquist and Larson to name a few. My dad has done a lot of our family tree on his side and my mother's side. So have information handed down to me. He was able to talk with some of the older family members that are no longer here. I grew up in Oklahoma and Kansas. I now live in Florida. I have grown children and now have grand children. I am willing to help others in their research. Would like to set up a web site but haven't gotten there yet. I work otherwise would do this all the time.

Mary Jane Hanson Dotson 1839 - 1920

I am searching for any documentation - bible record, death certificate, obituary, etc. that will document James Hanson as Mary Jane Dotson's father. I have searched and searched for her death certificate hoping if would name both parents but have not found it. I must have documentation for James Hanson to complete a DAR application.

Any assistance would be appreciated!!

You can contact me directly at

Thank you.

Your comments say Sally Cox was Sally Rogers. Can you help me find her parents names and facts about them? Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

George Washington Smith
GWS's oldest daughter was Mary Smith who married William Jefferson Hart.
The correct death date for GWS is 1872. I have a deed record around 1878 distributing the estate and it list GWS deceased 1872 and also this is the only document I have found that list heirs of GWS.

Smith DNA
Hi Debbie,

I am researching my Smith line that came to Texas (Hopkins County and Dallas area) from Tennessee before 1850. Has anyone in your family ever taken a DNA test to see what Smith lines are more closely related to you? There is a website of Smith DNA markers and my Smiths are close to some in TN but I haven't found any in Texas that they are closely related to. If you do know of someone in your lineage who has a test kit on the worldwide Smith DNA website can you let me know the kit number so I can check it against our family's DNA sample? Thanks for any help you can give!

Just an FYI - I added a headstone photo this evening (the headstone is a bit faded and has quite a bit of lichens/fungi on it).

Hi Debbie,
I had forgotten that I left a message for you on this site! Thanks for responding. I have always heard about the Barksdale book, but have never put out the effort to find one (out of print?) and purchase it. Do you know where they can be obtained?

Hi Debbie,
My maternal grandmother was a Barksdale, her father was Claiborne Robert Barksdale, son of Beverly II and Nancy Easley Barksdale. Would love to hear from you, how you are related. I am currently trying to hunt down any photographs of the above mentioned people?
Would love to hear from you,
