                    Ancestors of my Dad, Thomas E. Jones

                              Generation No. 1

  1. Thomas Edwin Jones, born August 02, 1891 in Goldthwaight, TX; died
     November 04, 1949 in The VA Hospital in Long Beach, California. He was
     the son of 2. Abner H. Jones and 3. Mary Ann Hubble. He married Lola
     May Browning July 20, 1921 in Cleora, Delaware County, OK. She was
     born June 21, 1898 in Madge (was Elk Springs) MO, and died July 1994
     in Riverside, CA. She was the daughter of Albert Curtis Browning and
     Ora Elizabeth Johnson.

     Notes for Thomas Edwin Jones: Tom Jones was from Texas and never let
     you forget it. He loved to tell me that I was born on Texas
     Independence Day.

     He was a skilled carpenter and draftsman. He was also a wonderful
     farmer. Everything that he planted came up and produced such delicious
     fruit. He really knew what to do to raise juicy and sweet watermelon.
     And he always had cantelope and taught me how to tell when one was
     ripe.

     He loved animals and raised goats and chickens. I remember when he
     even was going to raise rabbits ... my mother didn't go for that so
     that didn't last long.

     I remember when some baby goats were born and he brought them into the
     kitchen to be warm and we fed the babies by stuffing their little
     faces into a pan of warm milk. They soon got the hang of it.

     He died when I was nine and I don't remember a lot about him. Just
     little wisps of memory.

     Notes for Lola May Browning: This note by Alice. "People that met and
     knew Lola Browning Jones would say that she was one of the most
     unforgettable characters they had ever met. She was the kind of person
     that thought that she could accomplish most anything that she set out
     to do. She went to Normal Teachers School at Tallaquah, Okla. after
     completing high school. She returned to her home and taught some of
     her brothers and sisters. Being the eldest of ten children she was
     considered by her younger brothers and sisters as a "second mother".

     As a young girl she was really very pretty with large brown eyes and
     long auburn hair. She was a person of high principle and duty. When
     her father was very nearly about to lose his farm to his brother
     Arthur because he did not have the money to make the payment, Lola
     turned over the money to him that she had earned from teaching school.
     He promised her that she would be paid back or that when he died she
     would inherit her share. This did not happen and she was very
     disapointed about it. As the eldest she caught the hard parental
     training that her young father dished out. She had to start helping
     him at a very early age. He was not well, and expected his children to
     work and to work hard. She felt that he was too hard and very unfair.
     She tried to be always a "good girl" so that she would not be on the
     receiving end of his anger. When she was in her eighties she told me a
     story of when she was about 16 years old. This was what she told me in
     reply to my question; "What do you remember about your father?"

     "One day some young people came by to visit and we took a walk. Along
     the way there were some apples that really looked good and we wished
     that some had fallen on the ground so that we would be free to pick
     them up and not feel we had stolen them. When we returned my dad asked
     what we had done and seen. One of the boys said that we had seen some
     apples and prayed that they would fall down for us. My father took off
     his belt and started beating me on the legs right in front of these
     friends and was yelling ... "I'll teach you to pray for the apples to
     drop."

     "When we arrived back home I went inside where my mother was resting
     on her bed. She had given birth to yet another child. She turned her
     head to the wall with sadness." This is the memory that my mother came
     up with about her father when she was well into her eighties!!

     When the World War I started, Lola was like most young women wanting
     to do her part. It was a popular thing to get the name of a service
     man and write to him. She had a friend from the area that she liked a
     lot and they did write to each other. His name was Kelso. But, she
     said later that she liked him more than he liked her. She began
     writing to Thomas Jones and they wrote for sometime. He fell in love
     with her through her letters and I think she fell in love with love.
     They decided to get married and he came to Oklahoma to marry her. Her
     father did not approve at all and did not go to the wedding service.
     Mother thought that he knew he was going to lose the "goose with the
     golden egg" and would miss the money that she turned over to him.
     Perhaps he saw in Tom a man that would not support his daughter in a
     prosperous way ... and in that he was right.

     They lived in Sinton, Texas. Tom worked for the railroad as a clerk.
     He had been a clerk while stationed in France during the War. I know
     very little of their life during that time ... she did not speak of it
     to me.

     When my brother Charles was about 3 years old they moved to Calif.
     Daddy had a job as caretaker of a chicken ranch in El Cajon, Calif.
     They had made the journey by touring car with a friend that owned the
     car. They camped out along the way. Over the desert they drove on the
     famous wooden road that had been laid out on top of the sand.

     At some point her father-in-law died and her mother-in-law, Mary
     Hubble Jones came to live with them. This was not easy for her. Mary
     Jones was a person that thought she should be catered to by her
     daughter-in-law. There was a clash of two very strong personalities.
     Mary lived with her for 18 years until her death in 1942 in Escondido,
     Calif.

     At some point she began to do home nursing care. I don't know for whom
     or how long except for the pioneer family in San Pasqual Valley named
     Judsen and before and after I was born in 1940 she worked for Alice
     Gilbert in her board and care in Escondido, Calif.

     Robert was born in San Diego, Ca. and I was born 7 years later in
     Escondido, Ca. When I was small and the war was on, she worked at Rohr
     Aircraft in San Diego and made good money for the times. She would
     have to get up very early when it was still dark to make the journey
     to San Diego. The cars had to be driven without lights and the road
     was in some places very dangerous. After the war the government had so
     many men that were coming home from over seas and they took the jobs
     that the women had been doing away from them ... sent them home and
     gave those jobs to the returning men. "Rosie the Rivertor" was no
     longer needed and Mother was out of her very well paying job.

     My brother Charles was killed in 1945 just so close to the ending of
     the war and it really took the heart out of her. He was her special
     child, the one that never caused her any trouble. The family had
     planned to move to La Sierra where Charles could go to college and
     they went ahead with their plans to move after he was killed.

     Mother went to work at Riverside County Hospital as a nurses aide.
     Later she studied and took her test and became a LPN. She worked
     during the polio epidemic in the 1940's. She gave many a hot pack and
     had patients that were in the iron lung. One of her patients was a
     young man that later went into politics in Calif. and years later
     introduced mother at the Calif. State Assembly. He thought very highly
     of her. She had been telling the children Bible stories and this got
     her into trouble with her supervisor ... they removed her from the
     polio floor where she was so popular and put her on the gereatric
     ward. It was very hard on her at the time.

     My father in the mean-time had found a piece of property that he fell
     in love with in the Arlington area about two miles out of town. They
     were able to buy the place because of the money that had come from the
     government from the death of my brother Charles.

     They started to build again. Mother made all the cement blocks that
     went into the house. Daddy had had some forms made and she mixed the
     cement with a hoe and made those blocks. They were stacked up in the
     sun to dry. Daddy would lay the block and in the spring he would get
     the itch to farm. The house would not get any attention and it nearly
     drove Mother crazy.

     We lived in what was to be the garage. Later, Mother turned it into an
     apartment that she rented. She did the work herself and it was
     remarkable what she was able to do.

     We did not have any water or electric when we first moved to the
     Lincoln Street place. Daddy borrowed some tents from the Adventist
     Conference Office and that is  how we lived for a time until he got
     the roof on. He had the well drilled in the corner of the place at the
     opposite side from the house and it was ten acres catty-corner to the
     house. He made a sled that he set barrels on and he would take them
     across the field and fill them with water and bring them back to the
     house for our drinking, washing, and cooking needs. We did not have a
     bathroom. We had an outhouse. We did not have a bath tub, but a wash
     tub. We must have been the smelliest people around. Bathing was on
     Fridays. When we drank water it was from a ladle that we all drank
     from.

     When Mother washed clothes it was a very tedious job. First she would
     have to dip and pour the water from the barrels into a large tub that
     she would build a fire under. Then whe would dip and pour the water
     from that tub into the ringer washing machine. Of course she would do
     the whites first and then progress to the overalls that my dad wore.
     She would have to pin the clothes to the clothes line and then when
     dry, they would have to be gathered and folded. A lot of work!

     She cooked on what would be a camp stove. It was kerosene with burners
     and a little kerosene bottle. I don't remember an oven at all.

     Besides that work, she had goats and chickens and she worked in the
     garden as well. She must have been bone tired all the time. She did
     not drive, my father did not think a woman or at least mother needed
     to drive. So of course he had to take her every place that she went.
     He did not work for anyone after he moved to La Sierra and she did.
     He took her to work at the hospital and picked her up. She said that
     she turned over her paycheck to him as well ... and he was not a good
     money manager. She was far more capable.

     My dad died in November 1949. He got sick on a Sunday night. I
     remember that she had fixed him a meal that he loved ... bisquites and
     white gravey. He got indigestion and they got Dr. Lansing to come and
     look at him. They sent him to the VA hospital in Long Beach and on
     Friday mother went down to see him. He died before she could see or
     talk to him. He died of a blood clot, something that would be easy to
     take care of in this day and age.

     After he died, Mother seemed to be energized. She learned to drive a
     car ... not very well, but she drove up into her eighties. I am sure
     she survived and others too because of her guardian angel. She was
     really a terrible driver. She learned out on her ten acres. Learning
     to brake seemed to be the hardest thing for her to do.

     She set about the business of finishing her house. The church came out
     and put the roof on. Different men from the church came to do the work
     of the putting in the cabinets. We had a "working bee" one Sunday and
     her family came, Uncles Frank and Paul with their wives and Aunts Bee
     and Peggy and her son Bob Double and his wife, Doris and their two
     babies, Susie and Bobbie, and his sister Betty and Bill, her husband.
     They came to put in the drywall boards. Bob Double finished the entire
     job in one day. Everyone wanted to see Mother have her house at last.

     Soon the house was plastered inside and Bob and Mother laid the
     hardwood floors and they dug a ditch across the property and laid a
     pipe so that we could at last have water. They dug the hole for the
     septic tank and we had an indoor bathroom with a real bathtub. I was
     so happy and excited to be able to take a real bath in a real bath
     tub.

     The house was never really finished, and the outside was never
     stuccoed, but it seemed like a palace. The church gave mother a party,
     a house warming and gave her a chair and a fireplace screen. I think
     Mother was happy during that time. She was being courted by a
     wonderful man, Cecil Jennings that had been her friend down in
     Escondido and had moved to La Sierra first. His wife had run off with
     the hired man and it really looked like he and Mother would marry. I
     think that he loved her very much ... But the hired man deserted Mrs.
     Jennings and she came back begging him to take her back ... His
     children convinced him to do so, and it really hurt Mother. I am sure
     that he never had a happy day in his life after that and Mother never
     looked at another man as a potential husband again. She was through
     with men forever.

     Mother always had a wonderful garden. She had grapes, fruit trees,
     peach, and plum and persimmons. She had a beautiful rose garden and
     had iris lining her drive way. She raised corn every year and tomatos.
     Her corn was the best and she learned to just cook it "3 min. and no
     more". She would can corn every year and it was a hot and tedious job
     and one that I hated. But when company would come to eat, she would
     bring up a jar of her canned corn from the basement and would receive
     some wonderful compliments. She made wonderful jams and jellies. Her
     boysenberry jam was the best, and my girl friends would love to toast
     her home made bread and pile the jam on as thick as they could get it.

     She always allowed me to have girl friends stay over and sometimes we
     would have a house full. She seemed to love the laughter and noise
     that we would cause. Mother was a person that was full of knowledge.
     She knew how to treat a sore throat with Vics and flannel or wool
     wrapped around the throat. She knew the names of wild flowers. She
     knew how to do things that other women would never dreamed of even
     trying to do. She loved to make quilts and seemed to making them all
     the time. She would make them and give them away to needy people. She
     had made some quilts in her thirties that were really beautiful and
     she went through a time when she made rag rugs. She had a cement
     floor in a couple of homes and she wanted to make the best of the
     situation and covered the floor with her rag rugs for beauty and
     warmth.

     She was very thrifty and could make her money go further than any
     person I have ever known. When Daddy died, she went to a man, Neely
     Sims and asked if she could borrow some money from him to finish her
     house. He loaned it to her and she very faithfully paid him back every
     month until the debt was paid off.

     Mother was a person that even when she was very poor would do what she
     could for the needy ... not knowing that she was one of the needy
     herself. When I was divorced with two babies, Mother decided that she
     would help raise those girls ... I actually think that she decided
     that she would not just help. ... but that she WOULD raise those
     girls. She was determined to do it right and felt that I was incapable
     of making a go of it, and at that time, she was right. She took care
     of my little girls at a time when I needed the help and for that I
     will be eternaly grateful. They were a spark for her too. She loved
     them with all her heart and it kept her young in many ways doing the
     things that would interest little girls.

     Mother was not afraid of heights like "normal" people. She thought
     nothing of climbing a tree or getting up on the roof of the house to
     work on it. The first time Obby met her she was on top of her roof
     fixing it. She was in her seventies then.  When the girls were older
     and she began to feel she was not needed any longer, she decided to
     move to Oklahoma and be near Bob and Marilyn. She was eighty years old
     and she should never have done such a drastic move. She ended up
     living with me half of the year and then when spring would come, she
     would go back to make her garden. She was too isolated after being
     close to friends that would visit. She became more and more deaf and
     that isolated her too from social situations. She never got the hang
     of wearing her hearing aids and she became more and more closed off.
     She finally decided that the experiment in Okla. was a bust and bought
     a mobile home in Corona, Calif. There she lived until she could no
     longer take care of herself.

     She was truly a remarkable woman ... I have not touched on so many
     things ... She was the Sabbath School Secretary for several years
     at Arlington Seventh Day Church and took her job very seriously. She
     gave wonderful presentations that people long remembered her for. She
     had many friends that admired and respected her. I have only met one
     person that did not like her and that was her daughter-in-law.

     All of her brothers and sisters admired her and her nephews and nieces
     as well. Her mother said that she never caused her a moments trouble.
     They had a very special relationship even though they did not see each
     other very many times after Mother got married.

     My mother, Lola May Browning Jones was a very special lady."

     Notes for Mary Ann Hubble: From the Southern Standard: "On Wed. night
     at 7 o'clock, Prof. A.H. Jones of the McMinnville Normal was married
     to Miss Mary Hubble, at the residance of the bride's brother, Mr. T.J.
     Hubble in this place: Elder H.L. Walling officiating."

     Mary Ann Hubble lived with my mother and father (Thomas Edwin Jones &
     Lola May Browning) for the last 18 years of her life. I, (Alice) was
     two years old when she died ... and I remember going to the funeral
     and having to sit in the old black Pontiac. I can not conjure up a
     picture of her, but I remember her presence sitting in a room in a
     chair. In that room was a old Victrola and the wind up spring had been
     broken, so to play it one had to spin the record with a finger.

     She used a cane all her life. When she was a very young child, she had
     fallen into or stepped into a lye pit or fire where soap was being
     made, and it had damaged her foot to the extent that one leg was
     shorter than the other.

     My poor mother had to live with a mother-in-law that, according to
     her, was not so nice, and very bossy, and demanding. Mother told me
     that Grandma Jones' family had owned slaves and that grandma had
     thought mother was her slave. Mary's grandfather, James Jackson
     Darnell and most of his family had indeed owned slaves.

     Cyrus Hubble was a surveyor in Pike Co., Ark. when Mary Ann was born.
     On the census for 1860 there are no slaves listed and I doubt that
     Cyrus owned slaves. The family's sentiments seemed to be with the
     North and not the South. Both of her brothers were in the Union Army.
     In 1880 she was living in Tocodale, Coffee Co., Tenn. with her
     mother's brother, James Jackson Darnell, Jr. She was 24 years old. My
     brother, Robert told me that she would stick out her cane and trip
     him. She would also hook onto him to bring him up close to her. He
     said that his memories of her are that she was rather mean.

     From the newspaper in Escondido, California: "Mrs. Mary Hubble Jones,
     87, resident of California for fifteen years and of Escondido for
     eight and a half years, passed away at the home of her son, Thomas
     Edwin Jones, 1115 West Thirteenth Ave., early Sunday evening after a
     long illness which had confined her to her bed for a year. Mrs. Jones
     was born in Pike County, Arkansas, on March 5, 1855, and was a member
     of the Seventh Day Adventist church. She was preceded in death by her
     husband, Abner H. Jones, seventeen years ago. Only survivors of the
     deceased are her son, Thomas Edwin Jones, and some grandchildren.
     Services will be held Wednesday afternoon at two o'clock at the Palm
     Mortuary with Elder Parsons of Vista conducting the consoling rites.
     Interment will be held at Oak Hill Memorial Park.

     A Note by Alice: One day in the spring of 1992 I visited my
     grandmother's grave site at Oak Hill. The marker is broken and the
     grave site is in a run down condition. I don't remember visiting her
     grave at any other time.

     June 1993 ... On my trip to Tennessee I went to the library in
     McMinnville, Warren Co., TN. I found a short notice in the newspaper
     Oct. 1, 1885 that Professor Abner Jones had married Mary Ann Hubble
     in the home of her brother T.J. Hubble. The ceremony was preformed by
     Hugh Lawson Walling. He was the uncle of T.J.'s wife Annie Walling.
     Mary Ann was getting a ready made family, because Abner had a child
     about 5 years old whose name was Dwight. Abner went from Hillsboro,
     Tenn. to Texas right after the Civil War and there he married a girl
     named Louise. She did not live long after their son was born and
     perhaps even died in child birth. So he returned to Tennessee so that
     his mother and father could take care of his young son.

  6. Cyrus Hubble, born November 07, 1815 in Lexington, KY; died October
     22, 1864 in Pike County, Ark. He was the son of 12. David Hubble and

     Notes for Cyrus Hubble: James Jackson gave to Cyrus and Eightha some
     land in Warren County, TN Book D 1844-1847. In 1859 and 1860 Cyrus and
     Eightha recorded land in Ark. Doc # 11071 & 16011. He may have died

     Notes for Eightha Darnell: Note From Alison ... In the beginning of my
     search I knew nothing about this great grandmother except the name
     Eighthy ... and my mother told me that she was the eighth daughter
     born in her family. On the page of the Bible that my dad had recorded
     the names of his family ... her husband was written in as Silas
     Hubble. When I searched the census records, I soon found that there is
     not a Silas Hubble but a Cyrus. Easy enough mistake considering a
     Southern pronunciation.

     I found my Cyrus Hubble with his wife Eightha and their children
     including my grandmother Mary Ann ... I was thrilled but finding
     Eightha's last name didn't look promising. One day at Huntington
     Beach Library I discovered a book on the Hubbell Hubble family. There
     was a paragraph on Cyrus and Eighthia and their children. It was
     mentioned that she was the eighth daughter of James Jackson Darnell.
     There it was ... a name, a link in the chain and I was very excited.
     From there I found that there was a family history of the Darnells,
     which I bought. The Darnall, Darnell Family by Avlyn Dodd Conley. I
     sent Ms. Conley an update on Cyrus and Eighthia's decendents which
     will be published if there is ever an updated book published.

     Mother had told me that my grandmother had come from a slave owning
     family. I am reasonably sure that Cyrus and  Eighthy did not own
     slaves, but her grandfather James Darnell certainly did.

     Eighthia was listed on one census as Alcy ... I am going to assume for
     now that that was her middle name. James Darnell and his wife Patsy
     Darnell were cousins ... they had 15 children in 28-30 years.

     Mary Ann was born in 1855 in Pike Co. Ark. where Cyrus worked as a
     surveyor. He died 10/22/1864. Eighthia lived on another 13 years but
     I have not found where.

     On the 1880 Census of Coffee Co., TN. James Darnell (1818-1892)
     Eighthia's older brother is listed with Mary Hubble age 24 living in
     his household.

     She may have died from T.B. or pleurisy.

     Marriage Notes for Cyrus Hubble and Eightha Darnell: Cyrus and Eightha
     were members of the Church of Christ. The first Sunday of December
     1854 they presented their letters for admission and were received
     in full fellowship by letter into the Antioch Church of Christ in
     Delight, Arkansas. A few months later in April 1, 1855 Cyrus was
     chosen deacon and on May 6th he was ordained deacon. In Feb of 1858
     Alexander Campbell Hubble was baptized and accepted into membership.
     The family was still living there in 1874 ... Thomas Hubble preached
     on August 1 and on August 30 and several people requested membership
     from his efforts. There is then no mention of any of the Hubbles in
     the church records from that time on.

     Thomas was married in 1876 in Tennessee and his mother died one year
     later. Hamilton was the first to marry and he married in 1874 in Boyle
     Co., KY.


     Children of Cyrus Hubble and Eightha Darnell are:

             i.   Alexander Campbell Hubble, born January 12, 1844 in
                  Warren County, TN; died February 10, 1869 in Cinn.
                  Ohio. Notes for Alexander Campbell Hubble: From the
                  book History of The Hubbell Family - 1881, pg. 25.
                  "Alexander Campbell Hubbell, of Lexington, Fayette
                  county, Kentucky, son of Cyrus Hubbell & Eightha
                  Darnell, was born in Warren County Tennessee, January
                  12th, 1844. At the age of nine years he had the
                  mumps, which left him a cripple for life, and so
                  incapacitated him for an active career, that he
                  became a teacher. In 1863-4, he was a clerk in the
                  Quartermaster's Department, United States Army, in
                  Arkansas, and after the war resumed his profession of
                  teaching. In 1867, he became a student in the
                  Kentucky University, in Lexington, and pursued his
                  studies for three sessions. In 1869 he went to
                  Cincinnati, Ohio, to have a contrivance made that
                  would enable him to walk without a crutch, and while
                  there was persuaded to have his leg amputated that
                  he might wear a false one, he submitted to the
                  operation, and died from its effects on February
                  10th, 1869. He is buried in the Lexington Cemetery,

                  Thomas Jefferson Hubble: Note from Alison: There is
                  a picture of Tom Hubble in my mother's photo album.
                  There is pictured a large box shaped trunk with rope
                  or twin very neatly tied around it, and a nice
                  looking older man standing beside it with his hand
                  resting on the top ... (it is standing on it's end).
                  He looks to be later sixties or perhaps about 70
                  years old. He has thin white hair, clean shaven and
                  is wearing a dress shirt and tie, dress pants held
                  by suspenders and has very shiny shoes on. He doesn't
                  appear to be very tall. It looks like he is packed
                  and ready to leave ... but not without a picture. My
                  mother has written on the bottom of the picture ...
                  Uncle Tom Hubble. I am guessing that the picture was
                  taken in Texas. Newspaper notice of Thomas' death in
                  the library in McMinnville, TN. His body was sent by

     Notes for James Jackson Darnell: From the Darnall Darnell Family by 
     Avlyn Dodd Conley: James Jackson Darnell was born sometime during the 
     period of 1775 to 1785 in NC. The legend in this family is that five 
     brothers, migrating west, became separated at Chattanooga, TN. James 
     did not proceed far beyond Chattanooga, as his son Young Darnell was 
     born in Franklin Co. TN, the first county west from there.

     James served with the Tennessee Volunteers in The Seminole War.

     He owned a plantation of 200 acres in Winchester, Franklin Co., TN. 
     that he bought it for $2500.00 on Dec. 15, 1818.

     On 18 September 1827, James J. Darnell made deed of gift to his 
     daughter: "For the love and affection I have and bear unto my 
     daughter, Elizabeth Hines and for the further consideration of one 
     dollar to me in hand, paid by Isaac T. Hines, my son-in-law, the 
     receipt whereof is hereby acknowledged ... I have given, granted and 
     conveyed, and by these presents, do give, grant and convey to the said 
     Isaac T. Hines a negro girl, Julia, four years old, of light 
     complection, of which said negro girl I have already given the said 
     Isaac T.Hines full and absolute possession, and I, the said James 
     Darnell do warrant the title of the said negro girl Julia, to the said 
     Isaac T. Hines, his heirs and to their only proper use and behoof, in 
     testimony whereof I have hereunto subscribed my name and affixed my 
     seal this 30th day of March, A.D. 1825. /S/ James J. Darnell.

     Then the written deed of gift from James J. Darnell to Isaac T. Hines 
     for one negro girl was duly proven in open Court by the oath of

     and ordered to be registered. Let it be registered. /S/E. Russell,

     James Anderson, Graves County, was born May 10, 1839, in Coffee 
     County, TN., and is the fifth of fifteen children born to John W. and 
     Sarah (Darnell) Anderson, natives of Tennessee and of Irish and German
     descent. Peter and Sina Anderson and James and Elizabeth Darnell were 
     the names of subject's grandparents. His father was a soldier in the 
     Mexican war and was also in the Confederate Army; was a teacher from 
     the age of eighteen until forty-four; was elected clerk of the county 
     court of Coffee County, TN. before he returned from the Mexican war, 
     and also was engaged in surveying for a land company. James Anderson 
     was reared at Manchester, TN., and until thirteen years old, and was 
     taken to the country; in 1862 he removed to Paris, Ill., remained 
     there seven years blacksmithing and in 1869 returned to middle 
     Tennessee, where he farmed four years; then for nearly five years he 
     farmed in Gibson County, and in 1877 came to his present place, where 
     he now owns ninety-two acres of well cultivated land.

     In August, 1858, he married Sarah J. Waggoner, a native of Knox 
     County, TN., and daughter of John and Rebecca (Nelson) Waggoner. His 
     union has been blessed with twelve children, viz.: Mary E. (deceased), 
     Florence, John W., Ada, James, Jacob H., Sarah R., Maggie, Mattie,
     Theodocia, Lonzo and Roscoe, who have received a good education in 
     preference to anything else. Mrs. Anderson is a member of the 
     Methodist Episcopal Church.

     If I come across anything about James Jackson Darnell I will send to 
     you. You have given me great info on James Anderson which I will pass 
     to another cousin who is also descended from Nathaniel.

     Thanks so much for all. Try Jess Lewis. If he's buried in Coffee, 
     he'll find him for you. He has an extensive data base. In my great 
     grandfathers' obit (Luther Anderson) it says he is buried in Hillsboro 
     (Coffee County) but on a visit there I couldn't find his grave. Jess 
     Lewis looked for me and he couldn't either. I don't where they put his 
     body. Unusual to say the least as this was in 1945.

What a delight to learn of ones Ancestors. Where they came from and what
work they were involved in. Wondering what pushed them to leave the
familiar and move to the unknown. How brave they were and I always hope
that some of those "brave" genes have continued on in  me. My genetic pool
is full of Anglo Saxons and Celts. In America they were mostly farmers,
sometimes soldiers, homemakers, and often school teachers. I hope you find
someone that you have been looking for. Please let me know if I can help 
you ... often I can't, but I will try. Alison.
