As far as I know, I am descended through Gabriel (perhaps Gabriel George Partain), who was a brother to Benjamin Parton.
Gabriel Partain went to Georgia and used the Partain spelling.From what I understand, The Partains that went to Arkansas are the only ones using that spelling.
Gabriel was the father of Hezikiah Partain.
My great grandparents were Mathew Benj. Partain and Maranda Catherine Grace.
My grandmother, Connie Lee Partain, had ten or eleven siblings.I have those names.Connie Lee Partain married Tobias J. Bailey in Ada, Ponotoc, Ind. Terr. in 1904.They had three daughters together before Connie died in 1917.My Mother Vera was the oldest.The three daughters are as follows:(1)Vera Catherine Bailey (birth name "Cordie Vera"- she did not like her birth name so she changed it).Vera was born 28 Jan. 1907 in Indian Terr.She was suppose to be on the Dawes Rolls (Choctaw) but her father didn't see to it.Her father Tobias, her grandmother-Ida Luvenia Stewart Bailey and her great grandparents John Stewart and Nancy Jane Henry Stewart are all on the Dawes.Nancy Jane Henry Stewart was theChoctaw.(2) Verba Claudia Bailey born 1909 (early on they called her Claudie, then after that she was known as Bob or Mae-why ?I donl't know).(3)Velma Goldie, born ca 1912.
