"Dear Ancestor
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and the date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who cares
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you."

Selmon Enoch Bogle Alvis

I know this is not your direct line but I was wondering if you have any information on Selma Alvis's first husband, Rucker Henry Bogle and her children with him. I sent an edit in on Lloyd and Floyd as their mother is Selmon (Selma) and not Myrtle. Also, do you know if Lloyd and Floyd were identical or fraternal twins?

Linda, thank you for your attempted transfer of Rays GG Grandfather Benjamin Franklin Brindley #63917979. It was sent to Angela B.Bess member #16
by mistake. I have left her a message but, not sure what will happen. She had only one memorial and that was many years ago. I'll wait a few days then try to get Find A Grave to help. Would very much like to get this book to you ,if you get a chance let me know on my E-mail where to send it.
Blessings, Darlene member #48137773

RE: Shirley Saxton Broussard
So sorry I haven't responded sooner,been really busy with my mom; Ruby-doctors etc. She recently passed away Aug 17, 2016 & we just had her services on Monday; so unexpected. Uncle June came down and stayed a couple of days with me & couple of days with Aunt Shirley's son; Dudley for the services.

Yes, I would love to be able to get info, pics etc or whatever you may have to share of our family & I will do the same.

Please keep in touch.
Thank you,
Melissa Cuevas Martin

RE: Campbell's
Wow, I hope that is her. Melva wouldn't tell me if their were children between James and Ruby solely Because, she said they weren't kin if they did have any. She was a stubborn lady, lol.

For James and Melissa's children. I"d have to dig out some paperwork to give you some dates, but here is the list of names that I remember of their children.

John Lon Campbell
Felix Monroe
Robert Oscar
James Sailor

Might be more, but can't remember. Will dig out the paperwork. I also have pics that I will post as well. Felix and Oscar both past away in Alabama. Not much info on John Lon as of yet. Hope this helps some.

RE: Campbell's
Linda, you may find this odd, but I need to ask. Are you sure your grandmother Ruby was their 'granddaughter'? I ask this because my greagrandfather James Sailor Campbell was married twice. First to Mary Bertha Bragg and second to a woman named Ruby that no one knows much about other than her first name. James Sailor's daughter which had been living until recently, explained this to me - First, Ruby was never mentioned in the family due to her father, (James Sailor Campbell), uprooting his family for a much younger woman. She only told me so that I could get through the chaos of this family. I was then and now forbidden to speak a word of this to Melva's daughter. Melva is James Sailor Campbell's daughter, (recently passed). The only thing she would tell me is that He married a younger gal by the name of Ruby. That she believed she stayed by the Campbell family in Buffalo Valley after her husband's, (James Sailor's) death. Also, that James Sailor is in fact buried next to his sister. His headstone only reading, 'Campbell'. So, before we get into other details of the family, are you positive your Ruby is not this Ruby? Very curious, considering this is the only other time I have heard this specific name mentioned.

RE: Campbell's
Do you know who James and Melissa's children are? I do if you'd like that info. This side of the family is hard to locate on record, wouldn't you agree? It makes it especially hard to find James Campbell who married Melissa T. Garrison, because he also had a son by the same name. All I know is James Campbell, father of James Sailor Campbell. I do know that James Sailor Campbell, (My great grandpa), was married twice, although his children will not speak of it much. He shamed them when he left their mother for a much younger lady. Her name was Ruby. That's all I have been told. She was from Indiana. We have never found out her maiden name. We have no idea if she and James had children together. So there is a possibility of other children that we may not know of. I do have a picture of James Sailor Campbell. His daughter gave it to me on one condition. That I never show her daughter. It is the only picture of him. Also, James Sailor is buried alongside his sister Fronia Campbell(Herd) in Putnam county Tenn. From what I have been told, It only states 'Campbell' on his headstone. His daughter also told me this. Fronia and their other sister Eliza, married into the same family of Herds, (brothers actually). I do have pics of Fronia as well. Hmm, I'd have to look, but I do believe I have some of the others. I wish I had a middle name for our James Campbell that married Melissa Garrison. Even a town of birth, anything, lol. If you'd like to keep in touch and try to figure this out, I would love that. Very cool that we are related in some way. How are we related exactly? Very nice to meet you. Laurie

Hello Linda, not sure if we're kin, but I'm Laurie Campbell. Daughter of Donald Campbell. Donald's father was Herbert Campbell. Herbert's father was James Sailor Campbell. James Sailor was Ada's brother, both having the same parents, Melissa Garrison and James Campbell. I wondered if you had any info on James Sailor and his parents? Also, are we kin, lol?
