Greenbury Watkins was from the Northeast. They lived near Madry in Barry County, Mo. I found a will that was Greenbury Watkins's and cannot find it again. I know that Elizabeth married Charles Elliott but do not know when or what happened. She was very obese and ill with arthritis in her later life. She married Archibald McAfee Laney in Christian County in 1890. They moved to Barry County soon after they married. They had Eva Luella Laney in 1892 and in 1896~~Jeremiah Greenbury Laney was born. Jeremiah Greenbury Laney was called up to be trained in the first world war, but as he was his sole support for his mother, He was given a defered rating and he took care of his mother until her death in 1922. Jerry married Nettie Elmina Hall in 1920, and they had 3 daughters, Orpha Laney married Otto Sass and had 2 daughters Ruby Lorean married Harry J Smith and had 4 children of which I am the oldest child, and Lela Marie married Leo Bennett and had one child, Mark Douglas, who passed away December 31, 1976.

Query: There was a photo of students of Viola School District #77 from 1912 that was published in November 1995 issue of Ancestors Unlimited. It was noted that Ralph Curry had provided a copy of the photo. Ruby Couch Hale was also in the photograph. It is the only known photograph of my wife's great-grandmother, Velma Gunnells, as well as Velma's sister Edith. The copy inn Ancestors Unlimited is naturally a bit grainy.

If someone could assist me in obtaining a good copy of the photo I would be much obliged, as would Velma's only son, who is still living and has very little memory of his mother.

Query: My Grandmother on Momís (Lucille Henbest) side was Joanna Meador. She was born on 3 December 1867 in Barry County Missouri and died on 6 April 1949 in Fayetteville Arkansas. Joannaís husband was Alfred Henbest. Here is the data I have on Joannaís Meador lineage.: George Henry Meador (b 1 September 1838, d 8 Feb 1904 - Lucy Ann Booth Nathaniel Meador (b 19 September 1818, d 28 May 1862) - Sarah Turner and Katherine Perdue Eli Meador (b 1787, d 1846) - Sarah (Sarah) Turner Isham Meador (b 20 March 1762, d 2 March 1849) - Biddy Bradshaw and Martha Craighead. Joel Meador (b 1728, d 1789) - Frances, Agnes, and Susannah Clark. Jonas Meador ( b 1700) - Frances John Meader Thomas Meader, Jr. Thomas Meader, Sr. The lack of good Proof Documents showing that Isham Meador (b 1762, d 1840) and Bitty (Bradshaw) Meadorís son was Eli Meador (b 1787, d 1847) is one if the biggest problems in validating the Meador lineage. Does anyone have sources for this relationship? Iíll gladly share all my Meador and Henbest data.
