hello lorinda...looks like we may be related...i, too, am related to james maitland lauderdale...he is my 7th great grandfather...
elizabeth sarah lauderdale and lewis green sr. had massey green, (b.1751/d.1841) who married william sandlin (b.1744/d.may 1795)...they had a son named lewis b sandlin (b.1776/d.june 6th 1853) who married sarah sally kennedy (b.1777/d.dec. 4th 1854)...they had a daughter named margaret sandlin (b.nov. 23rd./1799 d.1877) who married william morris (b.nov. 14th. 1794/d.sept. 5th. 1852)...
now that that is all established, we get a little closer to my more current family...marg sandlin and wm morris had a daughter named rhoda morris (b.oct. 24th 1824/d.1905) who married a man named squire felix bowman (b.july 13th. 1827/d.1870)...together, they had my great grandmother on my mom's side, nancy bowman (b.jan.23rd. 1859/d.dec. 25th 1935)...(my mother(ada ruth parker) used to say that her grandmother nancy was the meanest woman she ever met)...nancy bowman married elbert s francis (b.aug 26th 1845/d.sept 3rd 1934)...they had my grandmother, cora ellen francis (i was named after her; my middle name is ellen) (b.mar 1st 1889/d.nov 1978)...she married william augustus parker (b. abt 1880/d.1951)...they had my mother, ada ruth parker, along with evelyn parker, virginia parker, berniece parker,and james and joseph parker...they lived in grove, oklahoma and both died there...my mother, ada ruth wisdom, died sept. 13th 2009...she was the last surviving sibling...i miss her very much!!...i just wish i had done this while she was still living, as she would have been facinated to know all of this...
i have just recently with-in the last year started researching my genealogy, and have been delighted with what i have found...
if anyone has anything to add, please feel free to email me and i would be more that happy to share my information............lisa wisdom(cwgrlup3456_1999@yahoo.com)
