I replied to a message on the Blackburn Family Genealogy Forum from Judy. This is a duplicate message on the Birdwell Family Genealogy: I expect your grandmother was right. However, I have been looking for information for one of my Carnes cousin's ancestry. Willie Beatrice Graves married Rev. Benis G. Carnes. Her parents were Rev. William L. Graves and Laura E. Fountain.Laura's parents were John E. Fountain and Talitha Bridwell - sometimes spelled Birdwell. She was born in Tennessee in 1831 but died in Nacogdoches Co. in 1889. I have no information further back on either John E. Fountain (born 1830,GA, died 1904 Nacogdoches) or Talitha. They lived around Garrison. I have a cousin relationship to Lola B. Birdwell's children who are Muckleroys. I have her name spelled Birdwell, but I have her father as James Thomas Bridwell, born 4 Jun 1899 in Arkansas. I don't have a birth place for Floy Tennison born 1892, but that she died Feb 1987 in Little Rock Arkansas. Can you add anything to either of these families?
