I was born in Dallas, Texas and moved to Kaufman, Texas at the age of 7. After my marriage I move to Ennis, Ellis Co., Texas. I began working on my family genealogy in 1985. I have spent the last year working with Ann on listing and taking photo's of the Wilson Chapel Cemetery in Kaufman Co., Texas. I am married (53 years) and have three children and seven grandchildren. My spare time is also cemetery hopping. I have pictures of Davidson's in Newton Co. Mississippi and Texas, Lanham's in Smith Co., Texas and Conner's in Navarro Co., Texas. FEEL FREE TO USE ANY PHOTO THAT I HAVE TAKEN ON FIND A GRAVE THAT WILL HELP YOU IN YOUR SEARCH.
Elisha Bice I am the Great Granddaughter of Elisha Catherine Bice. I see that Carol Bass Bassist gave family information for her Husband and his family that is incorrect. Elisha's Father was John B Bice #46389062, buried in Milano City Cemetery in Texas. He was married to Sarah Almeda Thompson #32434476 and #46389053. Sarah was entered as being buried in the Locklin Cemetery and the Milano Texas cemetery where there is a marker with her name on it beside her husband John B Bice. The marker with Bice on it in the Locklin cemetery is not her grave. John B Bice's father was Hiram S Bice with the mother being listed as Mary. Unknown what her maiden name was, it could be Ruble since in the 1850 census in Greene County Tennessee, they were listed above Hiram S and Mary Bice. John B is listed as one of their children. John B and Sarah A are listed in Bell county Texas in the 1880 census below who I believe were her parents. I am certain the information that Mrs Bassist has is incorrect according to all of my family records that came from Elisha's daughter Cora, my Grandmother.
Elisha C Bice Smith Elisha Catherine Bice (Price) father - JB Bice is really John B Price. His father is Hiram (Taylor) Price Find A Grave 60295176 and mother Mary (Polly) Lucinda Ruble Find A Grave 60295836 married in Greene Co., TN on 20 Dec. 1840. John B Price married Sarah Laura Hally Greene Co., TN on 5 March 1868. Per my recent research, they can be found on the 1850, 1860, 1870, 1880 US Census's in Green Co., TN. Burial: Price Cemetery Greene County Tennessee, USA
I hope this will help the family in their research. Carol Bass Bassist
RE: Michael Stephen Tinsley My grandmother was Susie Lorena Minor Cave, Syble's sister. My father was George Thomas Cave. Dan and Polly were his siblings. I'll see what I can find out for you on Don and Michael.
