I'm searching for a Paul Frank GRAY who married Daisy BROWN. Paul Frank was born in Enid, Miss. (Tallahatchie County). I don't have anything on him at all. Daisy was born 12/4/1892 and was buried in Lewis Memorial Cemetery, Asheville, NC. She married Paul Frank 10/10/1921 in Tallahatchie Co., MS. I believe that Paul Frank's mother's maiden name was BURKHALTER. I received quite a lot of information on the Brown family, but I need any information that anyone may have on the Gray/Burkhalter families. Thanks, Sue Berry

HOLLIS posted by Rex Hollis on Thursday, April 27, 2000

My GGGrandfather was BRUNSON HOLLIS, and is listed in your 1841 census for TALLAHATCHIE COUNTY. I have tried for years to find information on the name of his wife, and your listing is the first time I have even seen a reference to her. I believe her name may have been Eleanor, but had no document that confirms this. Brunson is listed in Marion County AL in 1850, with no wife. She gave birth to a son Daniel in 1841 in MS. Any help you could give would be most appreciated. My name is REX HOLLIS, [email protected].
