My Family History Journey

I'm coming along with my family history journey. I also say family connections, because on my  journey that's what I'm looking for. I have come across a lot of info over the years.  I have connected with some relatives as we. I'm thankful for that.

There are at times, when I hit a brick wall or two and more. There isn't anything I can do. I have to wait. I tend I pray that there are people connected to my family history are searching.

I see when others are searching, the other searcher has the missing link to what I need. All it takes is one similar thing to makes the family connections.  I've been blessed to come across family connections that way.

I wish that I can find more on my family history. My journey has been a long one. But, not long enough to find out what I think I can't find. I've been finding some things that I though was long gone.

It's as those there are things that we discovered we can seem to take them for granted. I believe that our ancestors and relatives had things that they felt was important to them in life. And they recorded it. But, did their loved ones keep a hold what they thought was of value after their passing?

There are resources out there. But where do we search?  I've come across old newspapers online. I have found obituaries, news articles, photos and some other things on my ancestors. It took me a while to find the info. But, you know what, it was well worth it.

I believe that there's so much beauty in any one's family history. We should record what we know and pass it down to the next generations. We all have a story to tell. But, will we share and record our story?

May we learn to take notes on what we know about our ancestors. May we try to record what we think would be interesting for the future generations. May we leave a legacy for those behind us can build upon the family history. Amen.

Thanks for reading.

Father told me that he last saw his half brother, Faris (LYLE) when Faris was in the Air Force about in the 1940's.

He married and had ? 8 children.

On the 1910 census, Alice's  surname was spelled LANKFARD.

Tracing The Lankford / Lankfard Surname: Through Lula Mae Madison

Who was Lula M. Madison?
Lula was born the daughter of Robert and Charlotta (DADE) Lankford / Lankfard
on Oct 11, 1875 in Canton, Missouri.
1875 - 1961

Lula was listed with the LANGFORD surname on the 1880 census.
Lula married William Emmanuel Madison Sr. on May 26, 1896.
Lula's maiden name was spelled either LANKFORD or LANKFARD.
The ending of the surname isn't clear.
The index has her surname LANKFORD.

Mrs. E.W. Nickerson
1889 - 1938
 On the 1900 census,
Isabella was listed born in Sept 1898.
Her age appeared to be first written as 2 but, marked over to be a one.
She would have been two in Sept of 1900.
Her name was spelled: Isabell SANKFORD / SANDFORD LIVED with parents
 and siblings at 2413 Edmond., St. Joseph, MO.
On the 1910 Census

On the 1920 Census
Her name was listed as Isabel V. LANKFORD on the index.
However, her mother, Charlottie,  household, her surname was spelled LANKFARD.

Notes On My Parent's Parents

Entry date: November 5, 1982:  And Added (Info)

Father's side: Back in 1976, my father, (David) told me that he heard stories from old timers about his parents (John and Jennie)...that they were half Indians.

My father heard stories about his father's father, (Isaac BLAKEY) who lived in Forest Green, (MO). He knew little about his grandpa, (Isaac, who was a Civil War Veteran in MS and a former slave from MO.)

Entry date: August 5, 1977

My father told me "his mother, (Jennie) told him, (when he was young), that he was an little Indian boy."

Additional notes:
Cherokee on my father's side --- (my) Grandfather, (John)
Blackfoot on my mother's side-- (my) Grandmother (Mary)

My Grandmother, Mary and her daughter, my mother Lula.

Some Thoughts and Research

I have always be fascinated about who my ancestors were. My parents told what they heard. I've been trying to trace the Indian stories. I couldn't find any found any connections. I do have cousins on my father's side who are and have Indian ancestors.

I did searched census records, death records and what resources that were available that stated their race in their lifetime. Most stated that they were black or negro. There were some time mulatto was mention on my Grandmother, Mary's mother's family.

It's strange. Oral history states that their was Indians in our family lineage. Yet, they stated that they were black or negro.

Perhaps, there were ancestors who didn't want their descendants to know that there was some white ancestors in the family. So they said that they were American Indians. I didn't know. It's strange. I'll share my DNA results in October of 2015.

I was starting the web for Frederick A. LANKFARD in early August. I came across an website be accident. Ironically, that website isn't there no more.

It was at the home of WIlliam "BIlly" MADISON Jr.
Billy was his nephew.
I wonder, whatever happened to my Great Uncle Fred?  When did he pass on? And where was he laid to rest?  Someday, I hope that the mystery of what happened to Frederick A. "Fred" LANKFORD / LANKFARD would be solved. Frederick was the 2nd son of Robert and Charlotta (DADE) LANKFORD / LANKFARD.

Tuesday's Treasure: My Father's Sister Geneva

Geneva (Lyle) Jones
Entry: Dated June 22, 1980
My father was speaking to me about his sister Geneva. He said that Geneva was in a orphans home when she was growing up. The home was somewhere in the Lafayette street area.
Some family connections  thoughts and research.
I remember Aunt Geneva coming to visit my father. She was a short woman.  She attended some of our Blakley Blakey White Family Reunion. My father and Aunt Geneva had the same mother, Jennie Bartlett Blakley Lyle / Lyles.

On the 1930 census. Aunt Geneva lived with others in the Northwestern Orphanage and Hospital  in St. Joseph, Missouri. Her brother Faris Lyle was there too.

Their mother passed on Dec of 1926. One can assume that their father wasn't able to care for his children. And other relatives couldn't help in raising them. Geneva was born on Sept 2, 1924. and her brother Faris was born on Sept 6, 1923. Geneva was about 2 and Faris was 3 when their mother passed.

On the 1940 census. Aunt Geneva and Uncle Faris were listed with brother O.P. Blakley and sister Mary Blakley.  Aunt Geneva married Carl Jones in 1944. They had 7 children. Carl William Jones Jr. Lawrence "Larry" Clayton Jones, Kenneth Leroy Jones, Clinton Lyle Jones, Marcella M. Jones, Floyd David Jones and Phillip Eugene Jones.

Geneva passed on December 12, 2005 in St. Paul, Minnesota at the age of 81. I'm thankful that I got to meet her and some of her children. Recently, I have come across some of her grandchildren. I hope come across more of my Lyle / Lyles Family Connections.

Exploring New Information

 Welcome !

I'm finding more family connections. That's slowly but, surely. I know it takes some time in the doing. I'm sticking with things.

There are times when I run into brick walls. I can't find nothing. Then there are times when I come across a lot of info. I can lose track of what I have.

This is why there is a need to review things. I have so much info that I can't take it in all at once. But as I review things, I see new information. I can miss things if I don't review from time to time.

I hope that you are all well. Hope you're enjoying the Summer season. Is it hot enough for you yet? Thank God for air conditioners. So, far it's been a wet and cool Summer.

Thanks for reading.
