Feel free to use any of my photos in any way that you wish, particularly the older ones. My sole purpose in posting them is to share them with those who want them and to preserve them for posterity, just as many of these once were gifts which others (long dead, for the most) generously shared with me. History is not for hoarding or profit but for passing on.

Inquiry re Charles Broadwater
Hello Ray,

Thank you for maintaining the memorial pages for the Charles Broadwater (15108347) Family. My husband is a descendent of Charles Broadwater, and we wanted to visit the grave site next month on a visit to Virginia. Just wondering if you had an exact address for the grave site(s)? It sounds like the burial location is in a housing development.

Thanks for your time, and for being such a dedicated member of the Find A Grave family.

LaCoste Family
Hello Ray,

I was looking at a post from you and was looking to see how you are related to the LaCoste family. My sixth Great Grand Father is Augustine LaCoste and his wife Euphrasine Moreau-Lami.

I would like to talk if you have any additional information on this family line. I am working on the Cousins side of all my family lines and trying to get to the living side of my families. You can reach me at " or 901-487-6201, I also currently live in Anniston, Alabama.

Thanks Joel T. Ross

Robert Isbell Sr. born @1815
Hi again Ray,

Well as you know I'm still looking other places to find concrete information/proof regarding my direct line regarding the Isbell's.

I know what other researchers have and what I have. A ton of it does not jell. Anyway, I've never been able to find my Robert Isbell Sr. who was born around 1815 in a 1850 census. I have them in 1860 in Stoddard Missouri with the children and before his wife dies. I have him in the 1870 census.

Today while once again grasping for straws I ran across a Robert H. Isbell born around 1817 in Georgia. With a wife Elizabeth who would have been born around 1825 in Alabama. Both dates very close to mine.

It shows them with the following children.
Jas. 7 born in Tennessee.
Russell 5 born in Mississippi(don't have a clue)
John M. 1 born in Mississippi.
Nancy "Lane. 50. (This would be about the right age for Elizabeth's mother...who was Nancy Morris, who married a LOVE.

Do you know which family this is and who these people are and where they fall into the Isbell family????

Your the only person I could think of that might tell me exactly who they are.

I don't have all my Isbell notes and books here in the house so it's difficult for me to find how this family fits in with others.

Thanks for any help you can give me.
Love Marian

I guess you could say that Willis is my cousin. Tilghman is my Great-great-great Granddad...
