Ms. Glover,

I think you have hit the jackpot. My name is Linda S. Linam and your grandfather was my great grandfather's brother. My Linam family all lives in Central Texas. Where we have lived for generations.

I have alot of information. I am including the Descendant Tree (attached) from my Family Tree Database for Maurice Linam (SC.) You will see your grandfather's name in generation (5). My great grandfather's name is Henry Harrison Linam. My great great grandfather John Berry Linam was H. H. and T. J. father. It is John Berry's father's name that I am not 100% confident about.

The extended Linam family apparently moved from South Carolina to Wilcox County, Alabama in the early 19th century. The census records show several males in several households all with the name John or even John Berry. It gets very confusing...and census records are notoriously inaccurate for several reasons.

My dad, Dr. D. D. Linam (he is 89 years old this year) had always heard that John Berry moved to Oklahoma with Tom and Vena but I have been unable to find any record of him being in Oklahoma. He was a CSA veteran and I have his Civil War records I obtained from the National Archives. I have alot of information that is in hardcopy. If you will contact me I would be happy to duplicate it and share with you.

The only children of Thomas that my family knew about were Georgia Mae and Lila, born in 1906 and 1910 respectively. I even have a letter written by Georgia Mae to my great grandparents. My dad wrote your dad a letter in the late eighties, early nineties because we knew Thomas and Vena moved to Marlow, so he was following up on that lead. I don't think they ever corresponded again.

I still have holes in my research so I'm anxious to see if you have information about the Linam family that I do not. I'm really interested in the lady's information who said her mother was Ida Linam. The 1880 Census for Bastrop County, Texas shows the John Berry Linam family to have a daughter Ida. I think I have tracked her to be an Ida Smith living in Elgin, Texas in the 2nd decade of the 20th century but can't be sure.

You are welcome to contact me at my home e-mail address. We just need to figure out how I can get that to you.

Hope this helps.
