David Owings sent me this fabulous photo. David is a 3rd great grand nephew of the brothers Gabriel George, Hiram J. George, and John Hicks George, all Quantrill Guerillas. The photo relates to guerilla John Hicks George who later became a doctor. At the time, becoming a doctor only took about 18 months of study. David and I are speculating if this is a class photos for John Hicks George while in medical school.
James D. Peterson – JD51P@aol.com– has provided these new images of the grave site of his great grandparents Mary Harriet James & Daniel J. Owens. Another image of the tombstone of his grandparents William Andrew “Willie” Owens & Centennial Adkins. And a third image of his mother Mary Magdeline “Maggie” Owens, who was formerly mis-identified as Margaret Owens. Also, please note his name is Peterson, and not Patterson.
Hi there. I have been submitting information and getting information from “Stray Leaves” since October 1999. Eric James is the author. I am a third great granddaughter of John M. James and Clara Nalle James. Their information is on “Stray Leaves.” We have outlaws Frank and Jesse James on Stray Leaves, too, as our cousins. We have actors and former actors and vice presidents and former vice presidents and presidents and former presidents and governors and former governors and mayors and former mayors and lawyers and real estate people and the Dalton gang and probably more than that in our James line on “Stray Leaves.” We also have Sam Walton, the founder of Wal-Mart. John M. James and Clara Nalle James are his great great grandparents. It also has my Huey line back to 1680 in Ireland. “Stray Leaves”also has information on our line that goes back to William the Conqueror. It goes back to royalty and beyond. Thanks to Eric James who has stayed after it “Stray Leaves” is a big success. “Stray Leaves” also has lots of pictures of Frank and Jesse James, and lots of other people in history. “Leaves of gas” is a new beginning. Sincerely, Mary
Cyrenius Waite James (1831-1911) has been honored by the American Ex-Prisoners of War, Fort Worth Chapter. A nice memorial page has been mounted by the Thurmond Fairview Cemtetery Association regarding the event.
Cyrenius was wounded, captured, and confined at Resaca, Georgia, until 1865. He was serving in Company B of the 79th Regiment of Illinois (Union) Infantry. While a POW, one night he dreamed of his daughter, choking on a peice of corn. His daughter had died that same night. Up to the day he died, Cyrenius made continual claims for pension increases, claiming his hemorrhoids were a condition of his service in the war.
