I am descended from Jesse Gilbert Hamner born 1867 in Joplin, Mo. His death certificate says his father was John Hamner, but my research indicates that he was the son of Landon G Hamner. There things get even more difficult since I have found conflicting info on Landon G's parentage. Been trying to tease this one out for years. Do you have any info that might shed some light? I used to think that J. G.'s father and mother both died when he was quite young, but have recently come across an old post from someone indicateding that his mother died when the family was moving from Arkansas to Texas but not his father, though the two children were raised by The Witcher/Allred family in Bells, Gryson, Texas. Does anyone know when/where either of the parents died? The mother wasElizabeth E Clinebell, b about 1848 in VA.
