Wheeler connection
Modenia Nancy Wheeler (paternal grandmother of my 1st great uncle) married Blackburn "Black" Peace, who was the grandfather of Dicey Modenia Peace who married my great uncle, John Daniel "Johnnie" Pate. Modenia's father was William H. Wheeler, and grandfather was John William Wheeler. A bit of a stretch but still kin!

Wheeler Tree
I might have mentioned it before but you're in my tree as a distant cousin going back to Thomas David Wheeler from Virginia.

My records show Charles as having 3 wives. Do you have anything different?

Ms. Sanders,
I am confused about Jack J. Lockhart and wife Nell J. Do you know if there are tombstones for them? I am wondering who gave the data on them. I have death records for both and Nell did not die in 1943. And there is another record for her in another cemetery. See Find A Grave# 44056852. If you would send me your email address I can send you a good bit of data on these people. I am not sure how to delete a person from one cemetery in order to make a correction.

RE: William Robert Cloud, Jr
I don't know which you have records on. You have correct info on him as far as spouse but his parents are not correct. Find A Grave Memorial# 40430475 is the number for him.

William Robert Cloud, Jr
It seems he was born in Kennard, Houston, Texas to William Robert Cloud and Lessie King. The Franklin and Norma connection would not be accurate. They had a son named William Ray Cloud who died in California and another named Otis.

Thought I would help.

Curious of this connection to Norma D and Franklin Cloud? I have different information.

RE: Ernest Council Stephenson
Thank you for your reply.

I still must respectfully disagree. The second photo you've added to Mr. Stephenson's memorial is the only one that is possibly him. It looks like an sketch based on a lost tintype. Such sketches were common back then, as photography was only for the very rich and many copies of the picture was virtually impossible anyway. They saved money by getting one photo taken, then getting an artist to make a great sketch of said photo. Something that has helped me tremendously in my research is to acquaint myself with the look and composition of old photographs and also the style of clothing and hair styles through the different years. I would encourage you to look into it. You seem to really care about learning about your family, so I think that this will be beneficial to you. I think perhaps after you look more into it, you will come to the same conclusion. If you will look into photographs from the 1880s and 1890s, you will find many photographs almost identical to yours in almost every way.

I hope that helps!
