I have e-mailed and Barbara now has a lot of the documented info, but for the board:
Arvel Lolley was my great-great grandfather. One of his sons, Miller Lolley, was the father of my grandpa, Andrew Holmes Lolley. One of Andrew's daughters, Glenda Lolley, is my mother.
I have a lot, if not most of the documented family info from Arvel on down. His wife Amanda, is buried at Antioch Cemetary, near Cadeville, La, where many of the family is buried. We do not know Arvel's burial location, as he contracted an illness while enlisted in battle in the Civil War. He became ill in Richmond, Va, where he died at a hospital there. His grave-site is unknown.
The one thing we are hard pressed at the moment is finding who Arvel's parents were and back. Not even from the copy of his marriage certificate was this determinable. I did come upon a geneology page of Jeremiah Cloud, who claims that Arvel is a descendent of that family line. I am awaiting a reply, as I could not quite determine how this all fit.
Here is the page in question:http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~cloud/TX/d10.htm#P6763
Anyone who has any further information on Arvel Lolley, this line, please post!
