Looking for information about ALF WINBUSH. It is speculated he migrated from VA to TN and we believe he was still a slave when the move took place. It is said he was a preacher after having been freed and we know he eventually lived in Halls, TN. His youngest son, ISAAC WYMAN WINBUSH was my grandfather. ALF married BELLE CURRIN (may have been Arabella) who was believed to have been a slave in HAYWOOD COUNTY, TN, and quite probably was the slave owner's child. She is listed as property in the slave owner's will. She died in childbirth as my grandfather was being born. Any information is appreciated.

LEE, JAMES ERNEST, UNION SPRINGS, ALABAMA, (1894-ealier). Searching for information on my g-grandfather who was born about 4 July 1894 in Alabama. Married one Jimmie Glenn Goodwin on 15 April 1916 in Union Springs, Al. They had 3 children Essie Mae Lee(my grandmother) Eula Mae Lee and James R. Lee. James Ernest Lee became, a Feagin shortly after because his mom married into the Feagin name, and thus all the children last name changed to Feagin. Don't know exactly when the names were changed. I do know when my grandma Essie got married in 1932 her marriage certificate listed her as a Feagin. So who know's when it changed. We lost track of James Ernest Lee(Feagin) after my grandma Essie got married. So anyone who have information on him after 1932, on who he married after him and g-grandma split, and his siblings or did he have any other children, when/where he died if deceased would be greatly appreciated.

ALFORD, SYLVESTER, GEORGIA The information is not completed yet and the 1890 - 1900 information of Worth County, Georgia was lost to a fire at the court house. I have access to the 1920 Census and was able to meet and talk with a few of the people listed, before they passed on. According to the 1920 Census, Tom and Hattie Alford, my grandparents ages 65 and 48 respectively at that time, lived in Worth County, Sylvestor, Georgia with four out of eleven of there children (Bertha 17, Viola 15, Thomas Jr.11, & Manuel 25), a Daughter in-law (Willie Bell 26) and two Grandsons (Sillie J.C. 10, Clarence 8). The children not at home during the 1920 Census are Nattie, Sloan, Green, AW, Boyd, one-unknown and Warren "Buddy", my father. Boyd was the baby boy. At some point, Tom and the family went to live in Philadelphia, PA after being forced to leave Sylvestor. Manuel and his family stayed in Phili, while Sloan settled in Wilmington, Delaware. Clarence, Manuelís son settled in Egg Harbor, NJ. Boyd married and settled in Oxford, Maryland. I was told Tom was the victim of a homicide and Hattie died of natural causes. I think they are interred some where Philadelphia, PA or Egg Harbor, NJ. Warren, also known as "Buddy" at an early age ran away from home because his father would not allow him to attend school. Warren married his first wife, who was from Sylvester, GA, and moved to Pittsburgh, PA. I donít Warrenís first wifeís name, but was told she was a very beautiful woman. Warren made his living as a Pullman Porter on the railroad. Also, Warren was a traveling evangelist. Warrenís first wife pasted away and while I canít be sure of children from the first union, my father did told me he had another son by the name of Hollis. When he last heard from Hollis it before 1963, and we lived at 1202 Short Court Apt. C1, Baltimore, Maryland 21202. Warren meet my mother, Mahala Ann Giddins in Baltimore during a Revival in 1941. They were married in 1942 and I was born ten years later. I meet Whirlie Alford, who married a Scott in Sylvestor, GA. Whirlie said she knew Tom Alford. I donít think the Tom she know was my Grandfather, however I do think we are related. I just havenít been able to make the connection yet. The Tom that Whirlie referred to was age 32 during the 1920 Census and was the father of a Joel Alford that resides in Sylvester or Albany, GA. I think Joel is still alive and the Alfords are still in that area todate. Do you know any of these family members or their descendent? Would also Love to find half brother name Hollis. Thanks in advanced for your help.

We know she was in Ansonia CT 1912, but dont know where the family settled. All correpondance later are lost. I would be very grateful if anyone could help me in my search. Please mail me privately.

Am looking for any information regarding my grandparents, Sam(uel)and Mary Calahan. My grandfather was thought to be born in Dennison, TX in or around 1884.

He started a family in Sherman, TX and later left them and married my grandmother Mary Gatewood. Mary was born in White Rock, TX in 1900. Her father was Native American (Creek) named John and her mother was African American, named Elizabeth. Mary may have had polio or had some sord of accident as she walked with a limp. They were both illiterate and could give us very little information. She had a sister named Nora. Any information would be greatly appreciated as I am just starting my search and am lost.. Thanks!!

Re: RESEARCH/HORTON, CHARLES, BARNES, BROWNING, etc. by Jeanette posted on Mon, 5 Oct 1998 Jeanette: tried your AOL address - returned as undeliverable, so I hope you see this. Check Montgomery Co., AL, Orphans Court Book C, p. 81 dated in 1840 - division of the estate of Thomas Lumpkin who was the father-in-law of Elkanah Barnes. Barnes received some slaves as part of the division of the estate - I don't know their names b/c I just received this info last week about my Lumpkin and Barnes ancestors. Still, this could be the info you seek. Jeanette, if your family has passed down through the generations any stories about servitude under the Barnes family, could you please share them with me? Also, given the nature of the master(male)-slave(female) sexual/rape relationship, do you know if we are we cousins? I look forward to your reply! Bill Bray
