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 9320 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 British 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.|

|Tanya Reed Bush||RE: Cordila Ann McDaniel Martin|
Thank you very much Don for clearing that up for me. I hesitate to put the edits in, so if i'm unsure I will send a message first. Thank you for putting the time and work into these memorial.
Have a wonderful day,
|Vikki Prudden||RE: Infant Hailey #111590926|
Thank you for the transfer. I will see what I can find re: her death.
|Vikki Prudden||Infant Hailey #111590926|
You created the above memorial, and the person that tried to fulfill the photo request reported that she could not find her grave. Do you know if there is a marker on her grave/ Also, what is your relationship to this family? Her mother was my second cousin, once removed.
|Joyce M.||Ottie Taylor|
I think I may have lost the edit information on Ottie Taylor. You might check the next few days to see if it has been processed. If not, you might try again. Thank you.

I have been working on the Swisher line and ran across the will of her sister Ann Marie Wells in 1893 she never married and left her entire estate to the following
Sophia Brown Sister
Angie Haynes Sister
Addie Murphy niece
Clara Wells Oakes niece
Edward Swisher nephew
James M Swisher nephew
Clara Wells Oakes was Clara Wells Collins dau of Thomas C Collins & Clarissa Wells
the will is on Ancestry
in a book on Ancestry "History of Cornelis Maessen Van Bureun I have it attached to my tree The Wells family is on 2 pages and lists Clarissa Wells m William Collins and had one dau Clara Wells Collins married Frank J Oakes
Frank & Clara applied for a passport and list her date and place of birth as 22 Jul 1860 Austin TX not sure why she is not on the 1860 census on 04 Aug but she appears with her father on the 1870 Travis Co Census as Annie W Collins
the book is obviously wrong on the name of Clairrisa's husband it is not William Collins
Texas Marriages, 1837-1973," (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FXQ1-JYW Thomas C. Collins & Clarisa Wells, 20 Jan 1856; , Travis, Texas, , reference 2:1T0QB5J; FHL microfilm 978,164.
I found a newspaper article 1945 Brooklyn NY on the posting the estate of Ann M Wells and it lists some of them and it talks about Clara W Oakes Trust so I assume Clara died in 1945
I wonder if someone gave Clarissa the name of Clara and it was her daughter? I cannot find any documentation listing her as a Clara she is in 1850 Fayette Co TX with dad as Clarissa. On marriage record as Clarissa. on 1860 Travis Co TX as C Collins and in the VanBuren book as Clarissa
Happy to share. Angela Jones Harlan

Wonderful! Thank you very much Don!

I can't count tonight. Andrew and Mary Pennington Free had 10 children, NOT 11. John Page Free and Nancy Strait are the couple who had 11 children.

|Mary Kammlade||John Page Free|
First, thank you for all of your hard work. It is so benifical to so many of us searching for our families.
I am writing to let you know that there is an error in the birthplace for John Page Free on Find a Grave. He was not born in Washington Co. Illinois in 17 April 1811 but in Rutherford Co., Tennessee. His father did not move to Illinois until around 1816. Other children of Andrew Free born in Tennessee were Joseph A. Free, 1806, Mildred (Milly) Free, 1809, William Hart Free, 1815. The first child to be born to Andrew Free in St. Clair, Illinois was Leroy Free, 1817. Andrew Free and Mary (Polly) Pennington had eleven children in total.
Would you please correct the error in John Page Free's birthplace on Find-A-Grave? If you would like any additional information on the other children, please feel free to contact me.
