How to Add a Query
STEVENS, WALKER posted by Donnie McClendon on Sunday, November 17, 2002

I will start off by saying that I live in Texas. I found a marriage between a Robert M. WALKER and Franssis M. STEVENS, 22 Apr 1891 Ray Co., MO off of Ancestry.com which I am a member. I am looking for Robert Martin WALKER who is my great grandfather. Because I can't find any information from the 1890 census from MO. I have lost him and my ggrandmother. No one really knows what happened to them. Their four children were living with relatives and/or as boarders in the 1900 census. The story that has been handed down was the they both died together in on of the first automobile accidents. I can't find anything to agree with that story nor can I find their graves. Any help would be appreicated. Thanks. Donnie Faye

COMBS, FLEMING posted by Carolyn Ellertson on Friday, January 31, 2003

I am trying to find my great great grandparents, parents of William Henry FLEMING, born Ray County about 1845. I cannot find his parents, who obviously lived there when he was born. Family tradition says that either great grandfather William or his father was a Baptist Preacher. If the church is named after him (should be a Samuel/Semuel/ or perhaps Thomas FLEMING). I have the bible he used when he taught sunday school, but it does not have family history information in it. I inherited it from my mother, who was given it by her sister, who got it from their parents etc. etc. It has been very well used, but still in good shape, but no documentation in it. Can you please tell me if this is the Fleming family the town of Fleming is named for? Just FYI - William Henry FLEMING and his daughter Hallie FLEMING who died young (early twenties) are buried at Neosho IOOF cemetery near the old civil war quarter (although not in it). Wm Henry was widowed when my grandfather Claude Moore FLEMING and brother were small children. He then married Ledora Timmons COMBS (2nd marriage for both). I do not know where his first wife is buried, nor do I know the name of my great great grandfather's wife (William's mother). I will deeply appreciated any help you can give me. I was there in May of this year for a once in a lifetime trip, but did not have enough information to pursue great great grandfather and his wife. Thank you ever so much!

MADDUX, VANBEBBER posted by Dave Maddux on Friday, January 31, 2003

Just located the first reference to the Maddux family cemetery. I understand that this property is now part of a state wildlife refuge. I have photos of said cemetery. I visited it with my father circa 1973 and we cut brush and cleaned up considerable overgrowth. I'm sure that work would not be evident at this time... I'm looking for a bio or an obit for one James Sidney MADDUX of Richmond (Dockery actually) I have his father's but would like Sid's as well as his wife Rosa Lee Maddux (VANBEBBER) Any idea where I might find such texts?
