I don't know the parents of Barbara Stephens but she was born 15 Oct 1822 in Alabama and married on 12 Jan 1843 in Tishomingo Co., MS to Absalom Gatteys. They moved to Hunt Co. TX where she died on 9 June 1908. She is buried in the Mt. Carmel Cemetery in Wolfe City. She and Absalom had a son named John W. Gatteys, born 14 Dec 1848 in Tishomingo Co. MS and a daughter whom they named Nancy Charity Gatteys, born 28 Sep 1850, probably MS. With these names, Barbara MAY have been the daughter of John William Gatteys and Nancy Riddle.Where does your Charity fit in? I find it curious that Nancy's middle name was Charity. I look forward to hearing from you.According to family tradition, my Barbara was called Barbary.
