I have been researching the Barnes, Lloyd, Nash, Rogers, Shoemakers, Stephens, Vaden, Vines, Williams, and others for over ten years. I love the concept and the work that has been done here.
I was born in Dante, Russell County, Virginia. As my family moved about, I have lived in Virginia, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas (a southern boy with southern heritage dating back to the early/mid 1700's.
I have been able to trace my wife's Vaden family back to D D Vaden born in Chesterfield County, Virginia. Although I have not found the link yet, I believe he is related to the Vaden's (Vodin, Vauden) that immigrated to the colonies in the mid 1600's. They migrated from Virginia, Ohio, Tennessee, Georgia, Mississippi, and other places before settling in Hunt, Lamar, Fannin, and Jones Counties in Texas in the mid to late 1800's.
I currently live in Lubbock, Lubbock County, Texas. I would be willing to help with taking pictures of tombstones in the Lubbock area. I can also look into other areas in the Lubbock County.
If any errors are found in the data I have entered or if you would like to add additional information, please let me know. If you would like to have a memorial transferred to your ownership, please let me know.
Eagles of Apperley Nice to hear from you Charlie: I am a great great granddaughter of Hannah Maria Eagles, sister of Elias. My grandmother, Laura Maria Harris, was a daughter of Robert Harris's and Hannah Maria's son, Thomas Eagles Harris.
My biography for Elias Eagles was difficult to compile, as it is a combination of war records, census, and other official documents plus a bit of family lore and family histories from my grandmother, Laura.
I would love to know any more data you may have on any of this family.
You are welcome to use any or all of mine; that is why I love documenting history. It is good to add the author, for any future additions or even corrections. I try to get my facts as true as possible, but somethings are not easy to document and often others can really help the story. I also write poetry and always publish under my full name of Shirleen Craig Farley. Cheers!
John William Ohde Are you at all related to Mr. Ohde or did you just take the photos? My grandfather knew him and I am trying to get in touch with relatives to share information I have about him, and a possible photo.
John Earl Pettry 89137057 Hi Charlie - I saw the change request you submitted on John. I always validate the data before I add it to the memorial. I have hit a stumbling block on validating that John is Lafe and Viola's son.
Could you provide verification of how you were able to associate him to his parents? If he is Lafe and Viola's son, there's a pretty good gap between his age and the youngest child I have on record for them.
