First time I have seen your site. Impressed by all you've done to help people like me. I noticed a J. T. HAUN, Lot 306b, and J. B. HAUN, Lot 307a, in Bethel Cemetery. I think J T (James T "Jim" Haun) might possibly be my grandfather's cousin. My grandfather and his brother/sisters moved from Tennessee to Collin Co. My grandfather moved on to Hale County and the rest of the brother/sisters stayed in the Collin-Dallas area and are buried in various cemeteries there, but none at Bethel. Wondering if you might have additional info on J T and J B Haun. I have a death record for J T but it does not give any family info -- just the birth and death dates on the tombstone. I have no info on J B. (refered to Claudia Kraemer)

My G-Grandmother was Martha Gaines, she had a daughter, Rosa Bell Biggs when she married Richard Edgington and Mr. Edgington had 2 daughters, then they had one daughter together named Luella Jane. I know Aunt Luella married a Duckworth and so did Mr.Edgington’s daughter Viola. I have Viola and her husband’s 50th wedding picture If anyone is more kin than I am to her I would be glad to send it to them (ed note: I found Robert (22) and Luella J (21) Duckworth in 1900 in Collin county with an infant son; in 1910 they are in Stonewall, TX. with 4 children. In 1920 they are in Bryan OK. In 1900 I found William (July 22 1875- Jan 23 1952) and Viola (Feb 5 1877- Oct 20 1945,) Duckworth with three children, Marcus 1893-1972, Oliver 1897 and Mabel 1899. In 1910 they show 7 children born to them, 6 living with them. Blue Ridge Cemetery lists Bessie 1895-1898. Other children also shown in 1920 Collin co census, were Houston 1902 and Grace 1907. In 1930 they are in Union Co, New Mexico, with Jewell 1914, Joyce 1916/18, and Richard 1901. Earl b. May 8,1900 is with them, who is a son of Robert and Luella.
