I am searching for a PAGE family that apparently lived in Hempstead County around the turn of the century. I have a photo in family records that shows a man ,woman, and a child with the following written on the back: Mrs. M.A. Page Fay, AR S-of Fay-9 miles on RFD #8-1 mile s of (unreadable)" We know our great grandmother, Lizzie Page, supposedly came from Huntsville, AL 1882 and died in Lamar Co, TX 1917. As far as we can detect, her two brother's, Walter & Sam also came to TX with her, unknown if they came alone of with uniditenfied parents.She has a sister that did not come, Pattie Mae. Going through some old family photos, I just discovered the turn of the century photo on a hard paper board type. Am hoping the photo will be a lead to another family memeber who cam help us identify the family in the photo, thus maybe finding Lizzie Page's parents. Thanks, Mary Magnuson -- -- Lamar Co.TX

She was from Rome, or Resaca, Georgia, I do not know her parents names, if you have any information on this family please fill me in.

Cecil M. Gaines Tue, 13 Mar 2001 19:16:56
I am trying to find what county in Arkansas my ancestor, Thomas Larkin GAINES, lived during the time frame 1870 to before 1900. He was born in Monroe County, GA 8 July 1832 but was in the census for Dallas County, TX in 1860. In the 1900 Navarro County, TX census he is shown with his family. His wife, Louisa, born December 1839, is shown to have been born in Arkansas. The census lists 3 sons, R. L.; G. T.; J.A., all born in Arkansas in 1871, 1873, and 1875, respectively. Does anyone have any information on this family. I live in Georgia and don't have access to the Arkansas census index. Would very much appreciate any information. Cecil M. Gaines, Moultrie, Colquitt Co., GA --

I am searching for descendants of Ella WILKINS TORBERT and George Alfonzo Torbert who are still living in Hempstead County - in or near Hope.

One of her nine sisters, Ella Wilkins, married George Alfonzo Torbert in Russell County, Alabama, on December 25, 1881. Ella died September 12, 1905 and is buried in Old Hickory Cemetery in Conway County, Arkansas. I am searching for any family members who can help me fill in huge gaps in the family history.
