I am listed in the genealogy site and am wondering how we fit into the Hightower family? Some of the information listed is incorrect. Can you provide me with any details regarding the connection? Thanks MTS
I am a descendant of Thomas J. Hightower, b. ca. 1834 d. 4 Oct 1862 at Okolona,MS (son of William Robert Hightower and Martha Downey). I am interested in corresponding with others who descend from this family, especially those in this direct line. I have been researching this family for many years but have never met anyone other than my immediate family who descend from this line or this family. I also hope to meet other Hightower descendants who still live in the Izard County, Arkansas area. I have a lot of information to share with other descendants.
I have a quick question. Is the ID: I21078, for John Burnet Sherman Jr. the same for the one in Yazoo, Miss, born in Satartia, Miss. I am doing my families tree and need to know this. Because if it is my grandfather then this information is incorrect. If it is the same person, here's the correct information.
1st marriage was Willa Dean Brown- had three daughters. 2nd marriage was Glendora Fay Murrell- no children but had child from previous marriage.
Tony: I requested findagrave transfer of some of my husband's direct line--grandparents, great grandparents, and great grandparents to me in an email July 21 and have had no response. I used the email address given on your findagrave contributor site. So, now I am trying this avenue to contact you regarding getting those transfers. If you do not have that email, I will re-email it to you with the memorial numbers. Would appreciate your help....Darlene Hightower

Sorry, nothing has been received from you via findagrave. Please request the transfers again. Thanks.
I am trying to find out info about Amanda Melvina Parrish who was married to William Hightower Thorn. Do you know who her parents were? In 1880, her mother was living with them in Franklin County, AL. I might be related through the Parrish line. Thanks.
My GreatGrandFather was Williiam Henry Channel. His daughter Dollie Emaline Channel maried Francis Pharoah Hightower in 1911 at Joplin, MO. I would like to exchange notes with you, if possible. I seek knowledge of Wm. Henry's paternal family. I have a thought about his father, but no documentation. Bill
Anthony - My Grandfather, whom I didn't know, what Gerald DeFee Hightower, Jr. He married Ollie Berniece Henry. They had two children, DeFee Hightower and Randal Hightower. Who resided in Redwater, TX. My grandparents divorced, and I know Eugene Defee Hightower, jr. died a few years back.
Looking at your research, I would surmise that Eugene Defee Hightower was my Great Grandfather and Samuel O. Hightower, his father.
