Patricia -

In 2004 you answered a query I'd posted several years before.

If you are still interested in Kilgore genealogy, I'd like to hear more of what you have. Between 1997-2001, I'd learned what I could and ran out of leads and to a large part interest. I did find a number of details - the Jackson Cty, GA marriage registry still exists - basically a ledger in which husband, wife and recording clerk sign, listing birthplace and nothing more, and Willis is listed as missing in records still maintained at the Wilson's Creek, MO Battlefield (I think it's a national historic site - a staff member e-mailed me what they had on file.) Willis and family are mentioned (including the death of the oldest daughter at age 4) in an informal Coweta Cty, GA history.

I also heard from a cousin of my father (Dana 1922-2009, grandson of John Thomas, Ann's brother 4 yrs younger) that there was still a family bible in existence, started by Willis and Isabella. This listed Isabella's parents as Ephraim Lindsay and Ester (not sure if a surname was given) born in Abbeville (not sure if town or Cty) SC. No parents listed for Willis, the same dead end I got throughout the search. Have lost track of the contact details through a couple of moves, e-mail migrations, etc., but the cousin's name was Fidelia Jane ________(?) and she lived in central TX. I spoke with her some time around 2006 and she may not be around any more but her daughter was the one who put her in touch and should in principle still be reachable.

If you are still interested I'll try to overcome my fear of the unknown and dig down to the records stratum in the garage.......
