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

All of my memorials are works in progress, so I'm continually tinkering with them, researching, editing or expanding them. Additions, comments, corrections, criticisms and suggestions are always welcome and considered.

Dear Sir:

Are you related to Mary Alice (Chadick) Eastburn Wife Of Eugune Augustua Eastburn? I am just getting ready to start on Charles William Eastburn buried in Magnolia Cemetery in Mobile, Alabama. I today just received an EASTBURN FAMILY BOOK 372 pages. I do not see Charles William Eastburn at present.

Any info that you can help me, please let me know. I live in Mobile, Alabama, and where do you live?

Hoping to hear from you very soon.

I Remain

Robert Miller

P.S. My Charles William Eastburn married Sarah "Sallie) Rice. Sallie (RICE) Eastburn was C. W. Eastburn Second wife. I can not locate the first wife any info. R.M.

RE: Varian graves
Hi Ray, I also took photos of the stones for James Varian, Elizabeth Cornell Varian and Samuel Varian. Are you also interested in them? Elizabeth Cornell is already up without her married name and I have started to put up the others. Let me know if you want to manage them.

Horton family
Thank you Ray for the information. I first found Clyde and they had him w/the nick name of Coy.
But w/continued research, found there was one sibling w/the name of Coy and also Clyde. Coy was about 3/4 years older than Clyde. On Clyde's draft card, he list his full name as Clyde Estella Horton, and at that time, he and Helen were married, living in Harrison. I have also seen some documents w/his middle name w/an A.?
It seems like two different names possibly his
parents. A Willis and then also a William? I know how it all goes, doing research for years and all of the mix ups people assume are the same people. Clyde married Helen Lazarus on July 15, 1939, the marriage is listed in Arkansas. Helen
was the daughter of Mordecia and Parlee. My interest is in Parlee. Louisa Parlee 'Long' Lazarus McWilliams was the daughter of U.S.Grant
Long and his first wife, Louisa 'Farmer.' At times in documents he is listed as Ulysses S. Grant Long and other documents list him as William S. Grant Long, going by Grant. Thank you again for your help, it's always so nice to find
new information on the genealogy tree. Ulysses was my great grandfather's 1st cousin. Have a nice week end.

Willis Horton
Would you know if Willis' son, Clyde was married
at one time to a Helen Lazarus? I have a copy of their marriage certificate which states they were married on the 15th of July, 1939, Boone County,
Arkansas. It list his name as Clyde A. Horton.
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Jack Clifford
I noticed you posted on Evelyn Nesbit's site.
I am no relation to Jack Clifford who was Virgil Montani. Evelyn married him in 1916 and he abandoned her in 1918. Would you by chance know where Virgil went after he left Evelyn?
Thank you,
Jack Clifford (no kin to virgil)

Salvador D'Antoni
Hi Ray -- I'd like to fulfill your request for a photo for Salvador D'Antoni (1911-1958), but there are multiple D'Antoni locations in St. Vincent de Paul #3, and he doesn't show up on any of them. Have a look at the records for Vincent D'Antoni Sr (1900-1977, GRID 145199206) and for Joseph D'Antoni (d. 1932, GRID 147684868). If either of those is "Sal" feel free to use the photo for his record, or let me know which it is and I'll upload it.
