Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started my family search in about 2003 and registered with Find A Grave in March 2006. I started with 45 names and now have 9197 in my Family Tree Maker file. I live in the West Central part of Texas and am retired. My ancestors are first found in the USA in North Carolina & Virginia in the 1700's and came from the Britsh Isles. My Ferguson side moved from Jones Co., Mississippi to Hill Co., Texas in the 1870's and the Haynes' moved from Breckinridge Co., Kentucky to Williamson Co., Texas in 1885. I have traveled over West, Central & East Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee and Kentucky in search of graves & records. My lineage also includes the Land, Perrin, P'Pool and Outhouse clans. I enjoy the hunt and providing records and pictures to other researchers.

James Abraham Wells 1792-1865
Its me again Don. Still doing research on my ancestry . I am confused as to why Anna Maria Wells 1830-1893 is on the tombstone of her sister Sophia Alice Wells 1833-1893 and Sophia's husband Franklin Brown 1830-1864.

James Abraham "Jacobus" Wells 1792-1865 is also confusing to me. I read in the history of Cornelis Maessen Van Buren and his descendants that Jacobus m 1st Clarissa Bartlett and she died Jul 19 1824 (27yrs old) m 2nd Nancy Evans. Then it lists children
Hannah d Jul 15, 1827
Clarissa, m Oct 28 1826, William Collins and had a dau Clara, who m Frank Oakes...but in it reads Clarissa b Oct 31 1826 m Thomas C Collins dau Annie...something really wrong!!!
Anna Maria, d 1893 unm Buried in Austin
James, m ___
Leonard, moved to Buffalo and m there had 2 children: Henry, Helen
William, m ___
Francis, m___
Milton Grey, m ___
Sophia, d 1904: buried at Austin; m Rev Frank Brown
Mollie, m an Army officer and lived near New Orleans
Angelica, m Col John L Haynes; had 5 children
Adelaide Byrd, m Col James Monroe Swisher, a son of Col James Gibson Swisher. She d in 1864 buried in Austin

Some of these children must have been Clarissa's don't you think?

You helped me before by getting me in touch with Dorman. He was a lot of help and I sent him pics of the Adelaides and Mary Emma "Simba" Hewlett.

Thanks if you can help me again or lead me to someone who can.

I found the article about Effie Lee (Pope) Spurgin's automobile accident that resulted in her death in (Abilene Reporter-News, Abilene, Texas - May 1, 1953, Friday, Page 16).

Thanks for your assistance and for ALL the good work you do on Find A Grave. It is greatly appreciated.

RE: David B
From the death certificate I inferred that his name would be spelled the same way his father's was, and pronounced Brack. I realize it's not proof so understand you leaving the memorial as is. Thank you for considering it!

Hi,thank you for the info on Rev.Pryor for when he went missing. I didn't add it,because it's basicaly the same info contained in the photo and newspaper clip you added to my merorial.

Thank you very much for taking a picture of my grandmother's gravesite in Stamford. I don't get to go there very often, so this is important for me. Keep up the great work.
