James Terrell Webster b. 1854     d. 1909 lived in either Fayette or Marion County Alabama all his life….buried in Harmony Grove Cemetery with his Father Theodore Silmon Webster and many other Websters…..I have no direct descendants and would hate for this portrait to be thrown away by whoever does my estate.   Or worse sold at an estate sale for a few bucks….

If you are a direct descendant and would appreciate this picture please reply.

I am from Weatherford, Texas and have lost touch with my ancestors of Fayette County, Alabama, however, I would like to pass on some old pics of the Websters to some direct descendants of James Terrell Webster.    I have no descendants so I want to get this old beautiful portrait to someone who would appreciate it….He and many other relatives are buried in Harmony Grove Cemetery.

I expect to die in bed, my successor will die in prison and his successor will die a martyr in the public square. His successor will pick up the shards of a ruined society and slowly help rebuild civilization, as the church has done so often in human history. – Cardinal Francis George (2010)

Bennett Young and became a key player in the St.Albans, Vermont raid of 1864·(I encourage a look at that action)

I just found Clemmie Oldham Parks on your site.

She was my father’s mother.  I found her correct last name a few years ago.  She was a mystery to us. My father and his brother would not talk about her, only vaguely about the American Indian connection. Of course, you found  her older sister’s appeal, in the name of all the siblings,  for admission to the Mississippi Choctaw tribe.

I saw her at least once, when I was a small child.

There is nothing about John B Parks, her husband, except the marriage record you report.
