This page contains updated genealogical reports of the families of my paternal and maternal ancestors and closely associated families such as the Farringtons.

The families I have researched include BASHAM, BRACKEN, CALLAHAN, CROCKETT, FARRINGTON, FOSTER, GIBSON, HILLIS, LIVINGSTON, LYNE, MCCULLOCH, MCDANIEL, MIZELLS, OWENS, RHODES, RICHARDSON, STOVER AND OTHERS. Genealogical reports appear both on this page and on the Related Link, my original page. I welcome communication from any of my old and newfound "cousins".

All four of my great grandfathers served in the Civil War:

William M. Rhodes, Co. B, 30th GA Inf, wounded in the Battle of Franklin TN 30 November 1864, captured near Nashville, TN 15 December 1864 and sent to Camp Chase, OH POW camp until August 1865.

Henry M. Callahan, Co. D, 27th AL Inf, captured near Cassville, GA 20 September 1864 and sent to Rock Island, IL POW camp. There he signed an oath of allegiance to the Union, and was enlisted in the Union Navy. My greatgrandmother, Louisa Elizabeth Livingson Callahan, received a pension for this service until her death in 1939.

General (name, not rank) Lafayette Richardson, 12th Brigade, Texas Troopers, served six months toward the end of the war, but saw no combat action.

George William Lyne, Co. A, 130th PA Inf, wounded in the Battle of Antietam in September 1862.

Several photos have also been added to this page. Of the 10 children of William M. Rhodes, pictures have been located of all except three, James M., Emaline Rhodes Basham Gibson and Alice E. Rhodes Owens. Alice died at 29 in January 1896, and no photo has been located. Her mother, Margaret Ann Parker Rhodes, is believed to have died at her birth or shortly afterward. Her father married Rachel Harville 28 November 1869. It is hoped one can be obtained of Emaline. A photo of her son, Isaac Rector (Rex) Gibson with his wife and 3 of his 6 children has been found and appears below. His daughter Cassie Gibson Speakman, had 11 children and all have been found alive and well in and around Vinemont, Cullman County, Alabama.

Both James M. and his wife, Colorado Stover Rhodes are buried in Sunnyside Cemetery, Conway County, Arkansas in unmarked graves. He and Colorado (Rade) had no children, but it is believed he had a least two by his first wife, Delphia McDaniel, who died at an early age. C. W. (Woodie) Rhodes is listed at age 6 on the 1880 Lawrence County Alabama census along with a sister, Olly, at age 4 living with W. C. Cornelius and identified as "cousins". C.W. is on the 1900 Conway County Arkansas census and married to Kissie A. Bennett and living in residence 210, while James and Colorado live in 212. We know his date of birth, but until we can learn his death date within 10 years, a death certificate cannot be ordered from the Arkansas Bureau of Vital Statistics. A death certificate is hoped to identify his parents.

Since July 1999, three brothers and one sister of my grandfather Daniel Webster Rhodes, have been "found". Thomas Jefferson and James M. went to Conway Co AR by ox-drawn wagons around 1883; Benaja Alexander who had "disappeared" after the 1880 census in Blount County Al, went to Ellis Co. TX in 1895, and Emaline, who was last "seen" at age 13 in Basham Gap, Morgan County, AL,remarried after the murder of her first husband, James H. Basham and is buried at Ebenezer Baptist Church Cemetery in Cullman Co, AL.

March 3, 2001:

James H. Basham and Emaline had one son, James Alexander, with whom Emaline was two months pregnant when he was hanged by a band of vigilantes 20 March 1865. His oldest son by his previous marriage, Jonathan J. (Jack) Basham was shot by a firing squad composed of the same gang.

This son was located in Navarro County, Texas on the 1900 census with his wife Nellie McCrary and two daughters, Mabel and Beulah. Mabel married O. E. Paxton, and passed away 18 February 1990 at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Catherine Edgerton in
