Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am originally from California but now live in Texas. Did not know much about my family history just bits and pieces. I just started working on my ancestry earlier this year. I somehow found this website not too long ago and though that it was neat. My family the Carters, Meeks, Kuykendall and Hines are from Van Zandt County Texas area. My other side the Simons, Ahrenkiel, and Lanes are from the Iowa to Missouri area. The Ungrues are from Germany.
I am married, have 2 sons (we lost the youngest in 2008), and have 3 wonderful grandsons.

RE: Kuykendalls in Wills Point Texas
Thanks for the name--I found it in my tree and it fits. Sarah Malinda Kuykendall Carter Slater was the sister of Peter Erasmus Kuykendall Jr. who had Clara Kuykendall, and Clara went on to marry Greenie M. Parker and they lived in Wills Point, having kids and grandkids, including my dad. Sarah and Peter Jr.'s father was also named Peter Erasmus Kuykendall. My dad, as I mentioned in my first message, who would also be the great-great-grandson of the Sarah/Peter Jr. and 3rd great grandson of the Peter Sr., always pronounces the last name as if it were spelled "Kirkendall", so I was just wondering if you knew if that was a regional way to say and spell this variation of the name (which, as you mentioned was VanKuykendall in records overseas).

Sorry for the typo
My computer always marks Kuykendall as wrong, so I didn't catch that I flipped the y and u until after I hit sent. My apologies.

Kuykendalls in Wills Point Texas
I am researching the Clara Kuykendall/Greenie M. Parker line out of Van Zandt County Texas. My dad is their grandson and he always pronounced Clara's last name like "Kirkendall". Is Kuykendall simply an alternaltive spelling with the same type pronunciation or do I need to be looking for a name change somewhere along the line? I am doing most of my work on the free site familysearch.org and there seem to be quite an established kuykendall family history in that area of East Texas, just wondering if there were spelling differences or if they were all related and spelled the same. I appreciate all the detailed info on findagrave.com. Thanks!

Do you know if the name has one "T" or two? The entry shows two, but the gravestone has one. I have seen it both ways.

McCarty
Hello,

I received your proposed edit for Joseph McCarty. Could you share your source for the marriage of Joseph to Walcie Weaver Gibson? At first glance, it does not appear that they were married.

Thanks!

RE: Theodocia Agnes Baker Freeman
Findagrave doesn't tell if I responded to your message about my mother. You asked how I knew that Theodocia Agnes Frances Baker (Freeman) was the daughter of an Arkansas sharecropper when you showed she was born in Mississippi and never lived in Arkansas. If I didn't answer, I will tell you that I am her daughter, and I know she lived on the Short Farm in Arkansas and helped her father pick cotton. when she was only five she would pick the low cotton and he would pick the high cotton. Her father caught TB in one of the work camps in Arkansas and died when she was 12. Her mother was Bertha Maude Meeks and her father was James Henry Baker. The Meeks family still lives in that area in Arkansas, and i knew many of them in my childhood in Arkansas from 1962 to 1970. If i had answered before, please excuse my being repetitive.
