MAUD HIGHTOWER, b. abt 1879 was my maternal grandmother. Although listed in this database as living, she died abt 1940-1945 in Arizona.
Confirming that the 1880 US Census listed her as an 11 mo. old child of John Daniel (aka "Dan'l" and Ophelia Hightower of Prairie, Johnson, AR. Interestingly,the 1910 US Census listed her as Maud WARNER, housekeeper to Harry L. Hendricks of Shady Point LeFlor, OK. Believe this name was from an earlier marriage, as she had two children living with her at that time. She subsequently married Harry, becoming Maud HENDRICKS and gave birth to Mary Hendricks (my mother) in 1914. The 1930 US Census lists all three (+, I believe, a Hendricks son George from a previous marriage) living in Miller, Seminole OK.
I would be most interested in any other details (marriage, actual date of death, internment???) that you or your subscribers have access to.
I'm Micheal, the son of Carlis Harmon Haney " Deceased" and Charlene Rose " Living" in your genealogy. My dad's and my middle names are both Harmon not like spelled but that 's my ancestors. Didn't no we had any Hightower in us. I knew back to my great grand-pa. There's a Rose Family re-union once a year in Big Flat AR.
I have a hard bound book of the Burton family of Caswell County NC, put together by aunts of my mother. In it are copies of photos of Frances Burton Hightower and some of her daughters, plus written information about William Daniel Hightower if anyone is looking for things like this.
I am related to Frances Burton Hightower through my grandmother Lillian Claire Lea Veazey Rogers. I have a bible that belonged to Frances (Fannie) and then to her daughter Corrie Hightower Bowden. My mother remembers "Aunt Corrie" from her younger years. I just came across your family tree and wanted to sign your guest book. Really neat to see so much detail on this little known branch of my family.

Just wanted to send you a THANK YOU for all the extensive family tree info you have posted to <RootsWeb.com> on the Hightower family line from the marriage of Charnell Hightower to Elon Watts. I have some 1/2 cousins in the Watts line, from my maternal grandmother's first marriage to Newton Rector Watts. The grandchildren of Elon Watts and Newton Rector Watts figure as 4th cousins. I am compiling a Watts family tree as a gift for my 1/2 cousins and your research has proven to be exceedingly helpful.

I am looking for descendants of Nora Belle Franklin who married Robert Roy Allen in 1913 in Skagit County, WA and then married James E. Bridgeman in 1949 in Mount Vernon, WA.

Hey my name is Eloree (ID-I66559) just wanted to update you on some information on our family. First of all my wonderful mom (Flora Nell Paulk Id-I59873) passed away Nov. 13, 2005. She is buried in Wiskburg, AL. By brother Sidney Homer (ID-I66560) married Allison (Boger) on June 23, 2007. I married Brad Aaron Paul on Sept. 20, 2009. It has been very interesting looking at everything. Although I am a little confused why my grandmothers name on here was Angie when the only name I have ever known was Ludie. Also spelled Ludye. I can't wait to ask my dad about this. Or if anyone else knows the story I would love to hear it. Thanks for everything you are doing. Please let me know if I can answer any more questions. -Eloree MolyHolly (Walker) Paul
