Henry Shultse Baker,Joseph Love, Marshall DeSpain, Wilson Edley Ewing, Frances Melinda Hornbuckle, Benjamin Lynn, Marshall DeSpain, Capt. Wm. McCaleb,Jedediah Smith, Isaac Moore, Sidney M. Price & Mary Jane James Price, Joe A.

Benjamin Lynn DeSpain Benjamin Lynn DeSpain was the son of Rachel Lynn DeSpain. I am researching this family in cooperation with another lady. Benjamin also had siblings including Hetty DeSpain Clark and Randolph DeSpain (who was killed at the battle of Goliad, TX.
Rica Lori I noticed you were also researching Price. Lucinda Eaves Brown's mother was Faithy Ann Price daughter of Sterling Price and Mary Freeman, they had a son James Price married to Elizabeth (I have no proof of wife's name)
RE: Rica & Bates Hendrix Hello Rica Bates was my 3rd cousin 3x remove. She married J B Hendrix (I have his name as James G Blaine Hendrix) on 16 Feb 1913 in Logan County Arkansas. They had 2 children that I know of,Wilna Fern and James Bates Thomas Hendrix. Her Mother Susan L Brown was my 2nd cousin 2x removed, daughter of Howard Harvey Brown. Howard Harvey Brown was the son of MY 2ND Great-aunt Lucinda Eaves and James Usrey Brown I, Lucinda was daughter of my 3rd great grandfather Howard Harvey Eaves. loveto share what I have with you which isn't a lot Ronda email@example.com
RE: Craig family connections I see that you or your spouse may have some Craig connections. My maternal grandfather was Mallie Harwood Craig, and his father was Benjamin F. and his father James Craig of Lavaca or Beverly, Sebastian County, AR in the late 1800s and early 1900s before my grandfather moved to Haskell County, OK. Does this make any connections with your Craigs? If so I'd love to hear from you. I have many blanks tracing the Craig family back to ALA where James lived before moving to Sebastian County and some blanks tracing Craigs (outside my mother's siblings) forward.
Thank you for your time. Kay L. Fox Baldwin firstname.lastname@example.org
M.S. McCaleb Hi Lori, I am sorry but I cannot do anything more with this memorial, since I have transferred her over to you. Since I did not create the memorial for W.A., I cannot do anyhthing on his memoril either. You apparently have the control over them both and now, only You can make any corrections or changes.
Do you realize there are two Pleasant Ridge Cemeteries listed at Find A Grave. We need to get rid of one.
Could you please move your memorial over to the main Pleasant Ridge site, where everyone else is buried. You've got your memorial in a cemetery with only one burial. The real Pleasant Ridge has more like 400.
Craig family connection Hi, I am a descendant of a Craig family in Sebastian county, Arkansas. I notice that you have ties to the Wooten and Craig family among others. Was Gladys Rae Craig Wooten the daughter of John Craig and his second wife Susan Brown? Was John the son of a James Craig? James Craig was my 2x great grandfather. His son Benjamin F. Craig was my first great grandfather. Benjamin's son, Mallie Harwood Craig was my grandfather and Ella Mae Craig his daughter was my mother. There appear to be many ties to Sebastian County, Arkansas but I am having some trouble finding out very much about James and his first wife who must have died in Alabama. Perhaps you have some additional information? Kay email@example.com
Loves, Smiths Hi again. My "Love" line is from TN then moved into MO. My mom was a "Smith" and they were from IL, TN and MO. I'll keep you posted about our possible connections to both of these families. Thanks!
Lucy Pope & James Madison Wooten Hi Lori. My sister-in-law, Melody's, maternal grandfather was Tean Wooten (b. 1903), son of Thomas F. (b. 1870) and Rilla(sp?) Wooten. Thomas F. was a son of Lucy Ann Pope and John Wooten, so they would be Melody's g-g-grandparents.
I'm not sure if she has pictures going back to Thomas F., but I'm sure she has some of Tean and his wife, Bertha Mitchell Wooten (Bertha is still living and will be 106 years old sometime this year--truly amazing!). I'm sure Melody would like us to set up a memorial for Tean who is deceased, and we will add photos of him, Bertha, and family to it.
I am not currently on Ancestry, but will hopefully be re-joining this Fall. I will keep you posted and thank you so much!
