THE HOUSE OF JOSHUA EMMETT SELF
(1916 - 1991)

House of Joshua Emmett Self (1916-1991)

Contributed by Barbara Briggs Garibay
Present Owner of the House
who writes: "Our house was built in 1947. This is how the entry reads from a 1948 Long Beach phone book reads: 1826 Clark Ave Self, Joshua E. (Beatrice) mech. Power Unit Service. My guess is that he was a mechanic for some aircraft facility at or near the Long Beach Airport, since we are located only minutes away. [This is] our house as it looked when we moved here in 1999. We have altered the appearance somewhat, but judging from the little we know ( it was a rental for a while), I doubt if it was altered too much from when it was built."
Joshua Emmett Self was the son of Emmett and Margaret May (Vardeman) Self of the Missouri branch of the Robert and Martha (Walker) Self family

Tombstone of John and Melissa (Caroline) Self Muckleroy
They were buried in City Cemetery in Jacksonville, Texas.

All of the information on Melissa's tombstone is the same as on her death certificate. It reads as follows: "Melissa C.Muckleroy wife of John Muckleroy Born June 6, 1830 Died July 10, 1906."
Melissa Caroline Self was probably born in Calhoun County, AL--we're looking for her ancestors...
