|Bio and Links|
|I became interested in family history as a result of a grade school project in 1973. I would catch a city bus and ride to the genealogy department of the State Library in Austin, Texas where I would scan microfilmed census records and flip through the indexes of various hardbound materials. Upon resuming my research efforts, I became aware of what wonderful resources are now available on the internet---one of the best of which being findagrave.com. Inspired by the work begun by Sheila Leamons Johnson, I'm working to identify the descendants of my Gr-Gr-Great Grandparents, two pioneers of the Missouri Territory as early as 1811: Abraham and Jemima Leamons; additionally, building upon the research of the late Judge Albert Tate, I am working to identify the descendants of my Gr-Gr-Gr-Gr-Great Grandfather, William Bundick of Louisiana, by both his first wife, Mary Hay, and his second wife, Hessina Barker. Additional Leamons research can be accessed through the website hot link below. Additional Bundick family research is posted at Bundicks of Louisiana and Texas|

Bernice Lemons Gann
Find A Grave Memorial# 74535000
shows her husband as Lemuel Thomas Gann (1856 - 1886) Find A Grave Memorial# 147619738
shows children as Children:
John Wesley Gann (1877 - 1963)*
Melissa Jane Gann Mackey (1880 - 1963)
but when i check John Wesley Gann, I find him with father Isaac Gann & Ruth Ella Daniel in the 1880 & 1890 census...his siblings are Charles B. Gann and Martin Luther Gann...NO Melissa Jane Gann
I am unable to contact the person who put up John Wesley Gann Find A Grave Memorial# 6891218 because that contributor has passed.
Is there a way to verify this and have it corrected?
Thanks, Barbara Kehoe (working on my nephew-in-laws tree)

|Bill Earls||Martin James Kindle|
I have come across a situation with Martin James Kindle, (1865-1895) Find A Grave Memorial# 41295598, his Wife was Sarah Clemintine Holder/Kindle Find A Grave memorial# 41295537.
the problem is census records 1900, 1910, 1920, shows his name to be Martin James, Kindell.
I see his head stone and the newspaper report with the Kindle.
I know first hand about names changing from on generation to the next, but i am not sure how I should record this family, Your assistance will be appreciated
|Va||Leamon and Brown ancestors|
I had Brown ancestors in Claiborne then became Bienville Parish and believe my line may relate to James Hugh Brown--have been trying to figure it out. My Robert Brown married Lucinda/Lucy Barnes and they later moved to Texas just before the Civil War. Am trying to locate other Brown researchers in that area. Would love to compare notes and share.

Michael, Thank you for making the updates on these 2
|A Harwell-Brown||Tom Stinnett|
I added Tom's parents per your request and added a headstone picture. I also linked Tom to his wife and added her headstone.
|William G. Latham Jr.||Walter Franklin McClung|
I wonder if you know the wife of Walter F. McClung? I've found his memorial, but can't locate his wife's memorial. I sure would appreciate any help about his spouse, and children. Thank You.
|Robert A. Brown||Mary Leamons Brown Tombstone|
I visited Old Ebenezer Cemetery near Bienville, LA a couple of times about 20 years ago. I took pictures and looked around quite a bit for Brown tombstones. I didn't find any. Are the stones for Mary and Susanna relatively new? I was told years ago that James Hugh, Mary, Jame's dad, John C., Susanna's son, Jasper were there. I was also told that the graves originally had wooden "arbors" over them that the families would decorate with flowers, etc. on holidays.
James Hugh and Mary were my g,g-grandparents.
I would sure like to know if I missed those stones or if they are fairly recent.
Thanks for any info.

|Trudy||Re: Bessie Colbath|
Thank you very much for the information on Bessie. I have deleted my memorial and asked the other person who has a memorial to connect Bessie to her first husband.
