Let me know if you need any help on the Beard/Baird line. I haven't worked the Wolaver line much.

Clara Wolaver
Shelley, I created a memorial for my great aunt Loudean (Wolaver) Siler's mother, Clara, in Newport Cemetery. She's supposed to be there with her husband, James Wolaver, but the absence of a memorial from you makes me wonder if there's even a headstone. Do you have any way to check records for that cemetery? I don't usually create memorials without a death certificate, cemetery record, or personal observation of the headstone. In Clara's case I have none of the above.

RE: James Wolaver
Look for an email with the death certificates attached.

RE: James Wolaver
Shelley, the James Wolaver in Newport Cemetery is the son of John Wolaver and Caroline Hanselman. His daughter was married to my great uncle. The James Wolaver that died in 1926 is his uncle (John Wolaver's brother). You can see his death certificate on Family Search. Hope this helps. Gary

Samuel We sley Henson
Clara Nettie Henson was my grandmother she had a brother by the name of Samuel(I have no record of the meddle name of Wesley) also there was another sister named Annie Henson when the family lived in Clay County Texas with their mother Margaret Lorene McCord and step father Joseph Halt Candler.
Their father William Samuel Henson died in the Civil War and is buried in West Point,White County Arkansas in 1865,Margaret married Joseph Halt Candler July 19th 1866 and they moved to Texas sometime after that date.
The main area where all the Amburns, Hensons and Candlers lived was in Jack and Clay county Texas.
Are you presently on
Let me know if i can help you anyway

He was part of a cemetery list, so I don't have any more info than what is there.
