    BRANTLEY FAMILY
    BRANTLEY FAMILY (57)
    Thanks to information obtained from the Brantley Association, my Brantley family can be traced back to Josiah C. BRANTLEY, born about 1770. He and his wife Nancy had at least seven children James, Temperance, Henry, Martha, Nancy, Elizabeth and Josiah, who were born in NC and KY.

    At some point, this family moved to Illinois. In 2001, I received from the Illinois Regional Archives Depository, copies of the 1832 marriage record for Henry and his wife Agness CHIPMAN and the 1831 marriage record for Nancy BRANTLEY and her husband James BLAIR. (See thumbnails below).

    Josiah BRANTLEY is found on page 49 of the book \"First Settlers of Red River County, Texas\" by Gifford White. He is under \"Third Class Certificates Reported Genuine (Arrivals between 1 October 1837 and 1 January 1840)\" No. 620 Brantley, Josiah, 640 acres, Date of Certif. \"Jany 1, 1840\". I am not sure if this was Josiah C. or his son Josiah?

    Thanks to Shirley HENDERSON BUEHLER, we now have a photo of GW BRANTLEY\'s mother, Martha Paralee MONTGOMERY BRANTLEY. Shirley BUEHLER is also a GG grandaughter of Martha Paralee and Ebben BRANTLEY through Paralee and Ebbens\'s daughter Martha. I believe that GW looks quite a bit like his mother, Paralee.
    MCKENZIE AND CANNON FAMILIES
    MCKENZIE AND CANNON FAMILIES (30)
    Thanks to Scott McKenzie and Pam Smith, I now have my McKenzie line back to Chesley who was born in South Carolina between 1770 and 1780. I have found an Absalom KINSEY and a Daniel KINSEY in the 1790 Sampson County, North Carolina Census. I wonder if one of these men could be Chesley\'s father? If so, my MCKENZIE family would be found in NC>SC>GA>TN>AL>MS>AR. Chesley is in the 1810 Pendleton County, SC Census. According to a publication entitled \"Historical Collections of Georgia\", Published 1854 (Page 589-590), Chesley MCKENZIE and Henry CANNON were among the original settlers of Rabun County GA.
    According to the 1850 Chickasaw County, MS Census, Absalom and his family are living near Alton CANNON. Absalom\'s family in this census includes his wife, Sarah, and children Larkin, Jasper, Eveline, Robert Hugh, Newton, Mary and John.
    The first time my GGG grandfather, Jasper, shows up as head of household is in the 1860 Calhoun County, MS Census. He is there with his wife Nicy CANNON and son Marion. I cannot locate this family in the 1870 census. In the 1880 census, Marion is head of household in Calhoun County, MS, with his wife Martha YOUNG and children James R., and Alice, along with his sister Arminda and mother Nicy CANNON. Sometime between the 1880 census and the 1900 census, Marion and his family moved to Miller County, Arkansas. In the 1900 Miller County, AR census Marion is living with his wife, Martha, children Ola, Maud, William and Cara (Cora?) and granddaughter Bessie EASLEY. By the time of the 1900 census, Arminda was married to David CALCOTE. Nicy CANNON is living with Arminda and David in this census along with Arminda and David\'s foster daughter, Mary Wright.
    In the 1910 Miller County, Cleveland Township, AR Census, Marion is living with his wife Martha, grandson Marion M. MCKENZIE, daughter Corrie, daughter Maud FURQUERON, and grandchildren Jasper and Gracy FURQUERON. By the 1920 Miller County, AR census, Marion is living with a different wife, Rachel born in Texas, and granddaughter, Hadgie Amby SHEETS. (Hadgie is my grandmother and daughter of John Flint and Ola MCKENZIE SHEETS).
    My great grandmother, Ola MCKENZIE SHEETS, was married on the same day as her sister, Maud MCKENZIE FURQUERON, 01 Sep 1904. I wonder if Maud could be the woman on the right in the picture above? Ola MCKENZIE and John Flint SHEETS had three children; Dessie, John and Hadgie. Dessie died from Malarial Hepatitis at the age of 10 in 1915. I wonder if Ola may have died by this time since the person that gave Dessie\'s death certificate information was Marion, her grandfather?.
    There is an M.M. MCKENZIE, 63, that married a R.C. TAYLOR, 39, on 15 Jul 1918 in Miller County AR. I wonder if this could be my GG grandfather Marion M. and his new wife Rachel? I found this information on the Miller County AR genealogy site of Wayne ADCOCK. I now think this is Marion and his new wife Rachel. I recently put a few things together to make this assumption. I have a photo that I found in my grandmother\'s things. It is of a woman with the writing \"Henrietta Taylor\" on the back. I don\'t know for sure who Henrietta is, but it is possible she is the daughter of Rachel?


    In June 2008 - Ron and I just took a trip to Fouke Arkansas. Mr. Frank McFerrin was kind enough to open the Fouke Museum while we were there. He has done an excellent job and it was very interesting. We later met with the lovely and gracious Ova EATON and her very nice nephew David THOMAS. Ova is the daughter of Mary Wright who was the foster child of David and Arminda MCKENIZE CALCOTE. Ova recounted what it was like growing up in rural Arkansas and knowing my grandmother, Hadgie SHEETS BRANTLEY PARKER. Although I did not find the graves of John and Ola MCKENZIE SHEETS and their daughter Dessie SHEETS, it was a pleasure and honor to be able to meet Ova and David. I found Aunt Maude and her family in the Rocky Mound Cemetery in Fouke.
    OLIGNEY FAMILY
    OLIGNEY FAMILY (97)
    Thanks to other cousins, I have learned that the name OLIGNEY used to be spelled OLIGNY while our ancestors were in France and Canada. It was changed around the time of my grandfather\'s generation. There are some other variations of the name found in the United States, such as OLINGY, OLENA, and OLNY among others.

    The earliest OLIGNY found in our line is Jean OLIGNY who was born about 1700 in Tuelle France. His son, Jean-Baptiste I, moved to Canada sometime between his birth in about 1723 and the birth of his son, Joseph OLIGNY I in Chambly, Quebec in 1767. I\'m not sure when this OLIGNY family started venturing into America, but my line, starting with Noe OLIGNY, came sometime after 1878. Noe and his family settled in WI where his grandson, my grandfather, Joseph Lyle (Lyle), was born in 1898.

    The story is that Lyle was a sailor and somehow ended up in Baltimore MD, where he met and married my Grandmother Helen FUKA. They had five children Ruth, Edward, James, Helen and Lyle Anthony. Most of the children stayed in MD with the exception of my father, James, and his brother, Edward. They both lived most of their adult lives in Las Cruces, NM, where they are buried.


    Uncle Edward served in the Army during WWII engaging in battles in Ardennes, Rhineland, and Central Europe. After WWII he was stationed in Japan where he met a Japanese woman and had a child with her. I seem to remember hearing that they were married, but I can\'t confirm that as she was not allowed to come back to America with Edward. His son\'s name is Jimya (Jimmy) NAMBA. Jimya's daughter, Kumiko NAMBA, contacted me several years ago.
    I lost contact with her in around 2010. My father, James, and his brother, Lyle, were also in the service during WWII.

    I have found out from an obit in the Stevens Point Daily Journal for my grandfather, Joseph Lyle OLIGNEY, that he was in the US Navy for six years including the WWI period. I have not been able to find any military records for him yet.
    FUKA AND KALAL FAMILIES
    FUKA AND KALAL FAMILIES (19)
    Both my FUKA and KALAL families originiated in Bohemia.

    My great great grandfather Joseph KALAL, who was born about 1835 in Bohemia, is found in the 1870 Baltimore City, Second Ward, MD Census living with his wife, Anna, 34, and children Anna 14, Mary 11, Frank 7, Barbara, and Sophia 1. Also living in the household is Peter BRELL who is 40 years old and a Laborer. This census has all of the KALAL family being born in Bohemia. If that is so, then they must have arrived in the US in 1869-1870.
    EVERSON FAMILY
    EVERSON FAMILY (9)
    According to an obit for Elizabeth EVERSON in the 14 Mar 1918 Blair Press, Helen\'s parents, John and Elizabeth, set sail for America on 23 Jun 1858. They were on the ocean for eight weeks. Helen, my great grandmother, was born 19 Sep 1858 in PA. That would mean that Helen was born less than a month after her parent\'s arrival in America. The same obit says that they settled in Oleon, Potter County, where they lived for seven years. (I assume they mean Potter County PA). In 1865 they moved to Tappen Colee, Trempealeau County WI. Helen EVERSON met and married Albert OLIGNY in WI.
    Helen\'s parents, John and Elizabeth, moved with their son, Julius, to White Earth, ND in 1907. Elizabeth\'s obit states that she and John had nine children with only three living at the time of her death in 1918. It also mentions daughters, Mrs. Albert \"Olegney\" of Marshfield, WI, and Mrs. John McLure of Toledo, Ohio. They were both at Elizabeth\'s funeral as were \"daughters of Julia Iverson of White Earth, North Dakota.\" I do not know who Julia IVERSON was, and I wonder if Mrs. John McLure is Elizabeth\'s daughter Bertha?

    SHEETS and MCGUIRE Families (26)
    There is some speculation that the SHEETS originally came from Holland. I don\'t know if that is a tale that was passed from generation to generation or not. Most researchers think they came from Germany. My SHEETS family was among the early settlers of Hot Spring County, Arkansas. In the 1700\'s they were in Rowan and Craven Counties in North Carolina.
