Sherry,

Thanks for filling in the initials! For your info, I think that J. P had another son, Alexander Campbell, as he also married a Rankin -- Anna Belle Rankin, the sister of Lula Rankin who married Joseph Cornelius Sale.

You aren't by any chance still hanging around north Louisiana, are you? I was raised in Shreveport ... the Anna Belle and Lula Rankin who both married Sales were daughters of my great-grandparents John Allen Rankin and Amanda Addieanna Lindsey Rankin. So I suppose that makes us cousins by marriage. My father got a lot of information on the family from his cousin Norene Sale Robinson of Homer, daughter of Anna Belle and A. C. Sale. Most of my clan is buried in the Old Town Haynesville cemetery, or the Friendship cemetery in Haynesville, or in Homer.

Thanks for all the good info! I'm heading into Troup Co., GA (via the library) and will keep you posted.

Regards,
Robin
