Thank you for posting your reply to my query here on the MCCARVER Family Forum at Genealogy.com.It's always great to here from family!
I descended from Loley (Lorenzo Dow) & Lola A. McCarver RICHARDSON, Beecher Cleveland & Ethel A. Richardson CAMERON,Eldon & Mae A. Cameron BLACK, & Ira George & Bobby Doris Black ANDREWS.Both my Mom & Grandmother are still living; as a matter of fact, my Mom remembers your Mom, Loriane, from the time (circa 1940s) that the Rev. Uncle Roy Richardson brought his family back home to Eastland Co., TX, to hold a tent revival in the town of Cisco.
I have learned a lot more about the MCCARVER & RICHARDSON families since posting my query, "McCarver Family: Eastland Co., TX (posted: Sept. 13, 2002; # 181)."And I'll be glad to share everything with you & our mutual cousin, Jana Richardson Linkiewicz; just as I'm anxious to be brought up to date with our Golden State branch of the RICHARDSON/CAMERON clan (I'm especially interested in the family Bible that you mentioned);but first, I'd like toask for your patience. I'm right in the middle of some home remodeling (as we speak, I'm puttin' up new kitchen cabinets!).
I plan to E-mail info to both of you, just as I plan to update my original query on the McCarver family with additional info & corrections; but in the meantime, please read the following queries here on the McCarver Family Forum (they'll help to bring you up to date):
Query # 168: "T. J. and Ann Eliza McCarver (posted by Shirley Kirby Joiner on Apr. 6, 2002)."
Query # 237: "RE: T. J. and Ann Eliza McCarver (posted by "me" on Nov. 18, 2004)."
Query # 223: "RE:McCarver Family: Eastland Co., TX (posted by Vonna Simpson on Sept. 18, 2004)."
By the way, Vonna Simpson is our cousin on the RICHARDSON (RICHESON)/PILKENTON side of the family!She has helped enlighten me about our "real" GGG-grandmother -- Linda Ann Elizabeth "Ann Eliza" Richardson (T. J. McCarver's first wife & the mother of Lola A. McCarver Richardson)! You'll want to be sure to contact cousin Vonna, too. In closing, I'd just like to say that it was really wonderful hearin' from ya, cousin Kathleen!
Your long lost Texas cousin,
PS I've never heard anything about Lola's mom -- Ann Eliza, being part Cherokee.Perhaps cousin Vonna Simpson can tell us something about it.
