Bio and Links
Bio Photo Texas transplant from Missouri.

I do this to preserve the memory of those gone before us, and to help family members with their genealogical efforts.

Most of the memorials I contribute are not related to me and I am more than happy to make transfers so that these end up in the hands of their loved ones.

Feel free to use any gravestone photos I have contributed for your personal ancestry use. No credit is necessary. Credit is required for use of any personal family photos that I have contributed.

If I have sent you additional information for one of your memorials, there is no need to give me any credit for doing so. I truly appreciate the thought but you don't have to put my name on the memorial.

I think the census date of birth, 1882, is the correct one, otherwise her marriage to Charles Burrell would have taken place when she was nine years old!

Fascinating story about Charles, being a black Detective in Texas in the early years of the last century. Do you know if he left descendants? They had been married for 13 years before he died...

You refer to an article that names her husband as "A. C. Payne". I believe that is her obituary that was in the 1888 Chariton Courier. I have a copy of the article if you are interested.

Also have a brief article that mentions the 1895 $300,000 Grady estate with no details.

Isaac Nix
Could you check Isaac Nix's record? His bio says his mother was Amanda Morgan but I believe it is Martha Liggett. The death certificate on his memorial says his mothers last name was Liggett also. Martha Liggett Nix shows to have died in 1865 the same year Isaac Nix was born. Amanda Morgan was his dad's second wife and her first child was born 1868.

You mention a newspaper obituary which gives her husband as "A. C. Payne". It is available on Ancestry, but I think it is in error. Collison is a family name. Nancy's husband, Collison Payne, is listed as that (or variations)in all census and marriage records I have seen on him. He appears to have been named for my gg grandfather, Collison Payne, who died in 1814 in Smith, TN after service with Andrew Jackson in the creek Wars. That Collison Payne was apparently named for his uncle, Collison Porter, brother to Elizabeth Porter Payne, Collison's mother. Nancy's Collison's father was John Payne, Jr., one of eight sons of John Payne, Sr. originally from Caroline, Maryland.

In fact, I wish you would remove that statement. There are too many that see statements like that and not taking into consideration that obituary information may come from those who actually know nothing about the people they are describing, jump to conclusions and give a person like Nancy a new husband.

On your edit for this memorial can you change the edit to only the parents? My grandfather, Edward Eimar's son was not raised by him so I hesitate to link him with his mother May Rich.
