My name is Linda Surratt-White, I am looking for information on John Harvey GLEGHORN, and Matthew Gleghorn, I do know that Matthew married March 5, 1855 in Hempstead Co., Ar. to a woman named Mary E. I do not have a maiden name for her. I think John Harvey and Matthew were related, John Harvey married wife unknown and had two daughters Eula May Gleghorn and Amanda P. Gleghorn, John Harvey moved to Texas in est. 1866 to Navarro County. Matthew moved to Navarro Co., Tx. in est. 1867, they both served in the civil war, Matthew died March 18, 1882 in Navarro County, Tx. Mary E. moved to Fluvanna Scurry County, or Borden County Tx.about 1899 and she died there and was buried in the Fluvanna Cemetary. John Harvey moved to Scurry County Tx. in 1897 and died there 8-28-1925 and was buried in the Fluvanna Cemetary. I am looking for information on John Harvey's wife, what was her name where was she from and did she die or did she remarry and have other children. I will share any information I have. Thank you so much. Linda Surratt-White PLSTYX@aol.com

HUETT, James Bright. Born 7 Oct 1894 in Stamps, LaFayette Co. mar. Bertha Francis REASONS on 6 Dec 1915 in Hope, Hempstead Co. Father was John HUETT and mother was Lura Delilah RAYBURN. They had at least 10 children, Grover Paul; Ocie Tilman; Goldie Marie; Mary Josephine; Lura Virginia; Delois; James Wallace; Jimmie Nell; Nelva Jean; and Betty Sue. I don't have much information but will share. I'd like any information no matter how small. Family lore says that Lura Delilah Rayburn was related to the famous Speaker of the House, Sam Rayburn. I would like to confirm this. Thanks. Joe Bradford. Justin, Texas

Don Webber Wed, 25 Mar 1998 22:26:12 My family has been looking for information on the predecessors of my grandfather, Calvin Frank WEBBER for some time now with next to no result. He was born in Washington, Arkansas on 21 March, 1844 according to our family bible. We do not know whether Washington was the one in Randolph County or the one in Hempstead County. I will make inquiry of both. At any rate he was married to a Woman from Mena, Ar. on 30 March, 1876. By that time we assume that he was living in Mena and subsequently fathered nine children (of which my father was the youngest) with his wife, Matilda Frances (Fanny) OWENS. She was born on 9 February, 1859 in Mena. Incidentally both Frank, my gf, and Fanny, my gm, were deaf mutes and at least Fanny attended a school for the deaf in Arkansas. Their nine children were born in various places in Arkansas and one in Louisiana: none in Hempstead County, as far as we know. Frank died 16 August, 1900 in Mena; Fanny died 9 April, 1912 in Mena also. Both are apparently buried in Owen Chapel Cemetery, outside Mena. If any one is interested I could provide detailed information on these nine descendants and their offspring, most of whom have lived in California since around 1912, after Frank and Fanny died. I look forward to your response at your convenience with gratitude. Sincerely, Don Webber AKA fathiker@volcano.net
