Family Hello Norma, My name is Don Huffman and I have been told that Amanda Narcissus (Witt) Lewallen was my Great-Great Grandmother. Her daughter, Rebecca Lewallen, married my Great Grandfather, James Orville Manwarring. This is about all I know because my family moved from Texas when I was a young boy and I never got to know that side of my family. Would you have any information on Amanda or the Manwarrings that you would be willing to share with me? I thank you for any help that you can give me.
I am a descendant of the Herod family. I believe that there is a mistake for James Yearout Herrod. I believe this is Jacob Yearout Herrod one of James Herod's sons. He is the father of James Tucker Herrod also buried at Coila.
Also the John Herrod buried at Ciola may or may not be the son of James Herod but the transcription on the 1850 census was wrong. It was Margaret Herod who was an Idiot. not John.
The known family of the children of James Herod are allways spelled Herod. I have a problem with the name having ever been changed to Herod or Harrod.
I was just working on another Herod line in Arkansas where the census taker spelled the name Herrod but the tombstone read Herod.
RE: Thomas Allen Davis You are welcome-I'm glad the mystery is solved. This makes it possible ,for any relatives that go to California, to find the right final resting place of the son of Mary Jane Chambers Davis Hash. I am retired from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, Nancy
RE: Thomas Allen Davis It is Ok for you to post it, because I don't know how to. I asked that lady to delete her memorial but she didn't think she could since she did not add biography and picture of Tom Davis. I set up a memorial in Downey District Cemetery for Thomas Allen Davis 1890-1974, it is correct. I had already found Uncle Tom in Rose Hills after I sent for his death certificate, but that is OK because it just backs up our research and we know the information is correct. When I 1st researched the Davis family I had noticed that the tomb stone marker had a different birth date but I was new at this and figured who ever found this gravesite was correct. Fast forward, I returned to my research on the Davis family and dug a little bit deeper and found the error. The odd thing about Tom(1890-1974)is that his parents are buried here in Stephens County in the Gunsight Cemetery. Nancy Reynolds Hughes
