I am looking for information for both mine and my husband's families.
We are especially interested in finding information on my great-great grandfather, Holly Page. He was born in North Carolina in 1818. He came to Texas in 1840. He married Jemima Tomlinson (who was born in Georgia in 1819) in Nacogdoches County, Texas on October 2, 1842. He died in January, 1885 in Henderson County, Texas. Any information anyone has on Jemima Tomlinson would also be welcomed. Holly married a second time to Susan A., (born in Tennessee around 1823) probably before 1860, but we have no information on what happened to Jemima. They had a son, Thomas Franklin Page, born in 1849 in Titus City, Texas. He married Elizabeth Nancy Arnold around 1888. Other children born to Holly and Jemima were Nancy, and Mary Frances. Children born to Holly and Susan A. were Benazah Allan, Susan R., Holley P., and John N. On April 23,1874 Holly married Sarah E. Laurence.
Thomas Franklin Page and Elizabeth Nancy Arnold had 8 children. They were: Mary Evie (10-14-1889), Holly Stephen (11-20-1891), Stella Elizabeth (10-13-1893), Homer Sallee (1-21-1896), Fannie May (12-26-1897),Thomas Nealy (8-8-1900),Orban Ester(10-27-1903).
The youngest was my grandfather, Gordon Wayne who was born 7-21-1908 in Opelika, TX. He married Kathleen Bridwell on 3-18-1928. She was born 5-17-1908. "Grandpa" died 8-8-1987 and "Grandma" died 1-29-1983, both in Canton, Texas. There are 8 children in this marriage, seven of whom are still living.
Stephen Douglas Giles was born around 1870 in Tennessee. He married Ida ? who was born around 1868 also in Tennessee. Children born to this marriage were: Roy (1894), Eula Mae (5-7-1895), William A. (1898), Lucille M (1902) married Edwin Carter; Lawrence (1905) and Ena H. (1907). The three older children were born in Texas, the others born in Texas or Oklahoma.
James William McCarty was born in Mississippi. He moved to Oklahoma before 1895. He married Louise (or Allolouisa) Carlton. She was born in Alabama in 1855 to Aaron Carlton and wife Mary Buzbee. Children included Lucy who married a Beatty, Jenny, Len, Bill (possibly William A.), Elizabeth (Lizzie), Ella, Etta, (these two may have been the same) and Ollie Mae. Ollie was the youngest. She was born May 22, 1895 in McCarty, OK, which was still Indian Territory at that time. She married Martin Anderson Dewberry on June 20, 1911. To this marriage was born 4 daughters, Ola Jane, Iva Mae, Dixie Louise and Vera. They lived in Garvin County, Oklahoma. James William McCarty died in 1922 and is buried at Klondike Cemetery in Oklahoma or Klondike,Oklahoma.
Louisa Carlton McCarty died in 1898 and is buried at Klondike also.
George E. Knott was born around 1862 in Missouri. He moved to Arkansas (Magazine, Logan County) between 1895 and 1896. He married Iona ?. Children born to this marriage were: Rosinni, 1887-88); Jeff (1889), Felix Charles (12-17-1890), Ed (around 1895), Myrtle (around 1896), Woodson (around 1898),Harvey,(around 1900), Celeste (around 1906) and Willie (around 1911). Most of the children ended up in Locust Grove, Oklahoma by 1967.
I am also researching the names of Chandler, Chitty, Childers, Huddleston, Key, Palmer, Thurmon, Trice, Street, Tandy and Brockman on my side. My husband's family includes: Dewberry, (from Alabama and Georgia); Daniel Carectar (from Georgia),Limbaugh, Parsons, Walters and Knott.
I will probably be adding to this page from time to time. I have much more information (around 1200 family members so far) which I would be glad to share.
