Mahala Brown married James Harry Halsey. 
My g-grandmother was Elizabeth Caroline Halsey, 
daughter of James and Mahala. Lizzy first married

they were in neighboring counties - so thought someone might

recognize the family.

I have followed these four surnames, especially the three

that have on-line information and web pages; however, I

have not been actively pursuing this side of my family recently.

I still enjoy keeping up, especially Carole's obits and News articles,

and have found information on my grandfather's (Freeland)

brothers, and military news items on my dad and his brother

from WWII when they met up in Paris.

Lacy, Jeptha Stewart (died around 1891)

m. Aminta Ratliff (died in 1925 in Wayne Co Ohio


Mort Lacy (born 1880)m. Ida Mae Fulks (born 1881)


Ida Mae Fulks' parents were James Fulks and Julia Ann Brown Fulks I would like any help thanks in advance... Nancy


My direct line is:


1. William Leander Clair (1850 - 1923)

+ first wife Sarah E. Campbell (1852 - 1880)


2 William T. Clair (1871 - 1911) + Joanna Stidham (1878 - 1900),

daughter of Edmond Stidham (1840 - 1927) and Sarah Stamper

(1845 - 1906)


3 My grandparents, James Asbury Clair (1895 - 1977)

 + Lida Crisp (1898 - 1978), daughter of William Morgan Crisp

(1859 - 1941) and Siller Adkins (1868 - 1959)


* Martha Stidham (1871 - 1959) was the second wife of

William Leander Clair)

William Morgan Crisp was the son of Sylvester D. Crisp +

Lovica "Queen" Whitt.


There is a possibility that the CLAIR line is related to the

CREECH family, although they are more likely to be related

to the ASBURY and BROOKS families.

My grandparents and great-grandparents lived in Wolfe County,

with connections to Breathitt, Morgan, and Elliott counties. I am particularly interested in family stories and old photographs.


 Thanks, Darlene
