My cousin who still lives down the road from where James Albert and Etta Francis lived is their great-granddaughter. So they are in my JOHNSON family, but not a direct relation.

James Albert Hemphill married Etta Francis Unknown in 1899. They're daughter Janetta Gale Hemphill b. Jan 24, 1900 d. Jul 09, 1957 married my great-uncle Milford Sheridan Johnson.

So far I know that there were two other brothers Albert Hemphill and Joseph Franklin Hemphill.

Albert & Etta are buried in Osa which is just east of Springfield, MO. Janetta Gale is buried in Ellsinore, MO at the Joplin New Hope cemetery which is basically in the backyard of the home she lived at. (James & Etta lived less than a mile down the road.)

Any light you could shed on this family would be appreciated. Thanks.
