My name is Shawn Thacker, son of James Thacker and Gloria Chansley, grandson of James Thacker and Patsy Allsman, and Grady Chansley and Mary Forrest. I began doing genealogy in 2003 after my cousin, "Pa-Pa Pepsi" , got me into it. I am 18 years old and live in STL.
RE: Alexander/Baker Hi Shawn.... Yes, I am related to you very distantly then. Mattie McCaslin's sister was Lizzie Jane Baker Elliott and that is my great grandmother. I have been trying to add photos to extended family members when I find their graves on here. I also put a really good photo of their mother, Ann Sephira Baker Alexander, on her memorial page. You should check it out. The Baker family was originally from the Bloomington, Indiana area and that is where we are from originally. We are now living in Texas. I have quite a bit of family tree info on them if you are interested. I also have other photos of the Baker family too. Not sure if I have just one or two of Mattie though. I would love to share family photos with you. What is your email address so we can talk via email? Jan
