Name: Cindy Frankenfield:  Cirkusfan  aol.com
Date: 2004-07-01
Ancestor Name(s) Sam(uel?) "Huston"/(Houston?) Alexander
Date(s) and Location(s) b. 1820s-1830s in TN
Comments:
I am seeking information on my elusive ggggrandfather, Sam "Huston" Alexander and his wife, Catherine Manerva ABBOTT (ABBETTS). They were married in TN in approximately 1855-6. They had several children. Twin girls, Ella Belle and Mary "Molly" born July 4, 1857, a son Monroe and some younger who's names I don't have.

In Jan. of 1881, Ella Belle married John Calvin PATTON son of Samuel Donald (or Donnell) PATTON and Elizabeth SANFORD. They had four (4) children, Edith, b. 1885; Jessie Pearl, b. 1881; Maybelle Clara, b. 1883; and Claud, b. 1890. Ella Belle died, but according to family lore asked her sister, Mary "Molly" to marry her husband, John Calvin PATTON and rear her children.

Mary/Molly and John Calvin PATTON were married in Jan. of 1891, in TN.

Ella & Mary (Molly's) brother, Monroe ALEXANDER, married Nancy PATTON, sister of John Calvin PATTON.

Any information on the family Sam "Huston" Alexander will be appreciated. I am at a brick with with him.

I can be reached at Cirkusfan  aol.com

Thanks.

Cindy

Comments:
Searching for parents of my great grandfather John Alexander. He married Catherine Ash Feb 23. 1856. Tradition suggest that John's parents were not married and that he took his mother's surname (Alexander) and that the father's surname may have been Allison. I find John on the 1860 census (Jackson Co NC) and every census until his death 1910, but I haven't found him on any earlier census.

Comments:
As a descendant of Nelson b ca 1790 b Md family migrated through VA He married in Lewis Ky and died in Indiana --good doc on all this but I am tryinto find out about the possibility that Winford, or Sanford born 1787 Va with wife Louisa born Ky and Johnathon born 1797 or 8 in Ky whose wife was born KY are his brothers.
The woman Elizabeth Perry was also born in MD --seems a good possibility the families kmew oneanother in MD the youngest of these married in Ky a woman born in Tenn They all ended up in Indiana. So I try all possibilities of coming actoss someone who knows morea then I do.

Date(s) and Location(s) North Carolina
Comments:
I am a decendant of William Smiley Pharr Henderson, who was the son of Robert Harvey Henderson. William had several kids, three of which moved to Arkansas. One of them was my great grandfather, Charles Walter Pharr Henderson.

Gilbert Angie Henderson was one of the brothers who moved to Arkansas. He lived with my great grandfather and his family for a period of time. Gilbert died around the age of 41 and is buried in Pine Bluff, AR. He never married.

The other brother who moved to Arkansas (his name escapes me at this time) also had a family. I will write later and provide information about his family. Some of them are still in Arkansas. One is a dentist in Fayetteville, AR.

My great grandfather, Charles, married Katie Mae Elkins, and had one child, Elia Ouida Henderson. She was my grandmother. She married Carlton Newton Hope, and they had one son, Robert Carlton Hope. He is my dad.

My father married Patsy Jo Colley, and had two kids, John Robert Hope (me) and Marci Danette Hope.

I can provide more names, dates, and places of burial if anyone is interested.

Sincerely,

John Hope
Little Rock, AR

I am not necessarily related to or researching a person or family just because the name is on this site. I include items to help other researchers, and the site includes a substantial amount of information that other reseachers have generously sent to be shared with others. I believe that in addition to the quest to get information, genealogists and family historians should equally do something that they can to share information to further the research and knowledge of others. Please support and help free genealogy prosper by sharing your records and/or research -- if you can't put it online, find someone who can.

My sincere thanks to my "genealogical angels" -- all of the special people who have helped me in my genealogy research and those who have generously sent me their research and records to be shared with others. Please see the contributors page to view some of their names.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Always be sure to document your sources fully whenever possible -- genealogical information without sources is considered unreliable. And please give proper research credit to those to whom it belongs (you wouldn't want your work plagiarized by others would you?). Please remember to use the information you find on this site (and the internet in general) as a research aide -- I cannot verify the accuracy of the information.

I hope you find something within this web site to help you in your research. I add information to the site as I transcribe or scan more records, or as they are shared with me by others -- it's always a work in progress
