Another good Joines webpage:

Leonard "Melvy" or "LM" Joines (my grandfather), pastor First Baptist of Forney (1936-1950)

This picture came in an email from David Hindman.  Does anyone know who this is?  He believes it to be Clint Joines.  The box of pictures is labeled "Barbe - Center, Texas."  Charles Gibson Barbe was a photographer in Center, TX, from around 1899 until his death in 1922.  He was from England and I don't think he was at all related to the Barbee family (Photo from the collection of Leon and Ruby Read and scanned by David Hindman with permission of the family)


NOTES: Toumbes-Venable Cemetery may be spelled Toombes-Venible on other webpages, but that is incorrect.
The Mormon Internet database has Daniel Joines, Seaton and children "born" in Edgewood, Van Zandt County, TX, but they came from Tennessee to Edgewood.

Seaton and Susan (Jett) Joines

Daniel Logan Joines (3/27/1827 Tennessee - 2/2/1905 Van Zandt County) (3rd great grandfather) married Nancy Ann Jett (11/7/1828 TN - 8/13/1898)(Nancy buried at Toumbes-Venable Cemetery, Van Zandt County) (Cemetery is north on 859 out of Edgewood, turn right at 19, turn right at VZ CR 3613, 1/2 mile on the right, 100 feet from road).  Daniel is buried in the McBride Cemetery in Mexico, TX, near Quinlan.  He served in Company K, 53rd Tennessee Infantry during the Civil War.

1. Seaton Leroy Joines (12/7/1848 Giles Co., TN - 3/4/1920) (2nd great grandfather)
Married Mary "Susan" Jett (3/5/1854 Alabama - 3/3/1938) on 11/30/1871 in Giles County, TN
(both buried at Small Cemetery, Van Zandt County, N. of Edgewood on 859, turn left on VZ CR 3701)
Susan Jett's parents were Isaac Jett and Sarah Bird Jones (2/19/1826 AL - 1/7/1914)(Sarah buried in Howell Cemetery, Hwy 751, NE of Wills Point, Van Zandt County )
Note: On 12/30/2002,  I received an email from Will Brown's son Robert E. Brown (below) who said that his father told him that Sarah Bird Jones was a full-blood Cherokee and was on the Trail of Tears.  I also received an email from Jim Jett who also said his father and many Jett relatives, said that Sarah Bird (Jones) Jett was a full-blood Cherokee.  There is a Bird Jones and Sarah Jones on the Dawes/Miller Rolls.  One huge problem, Sarah Bird (Jones) Jett was born and lived in Alabama, which means she would not have been on the Trail of Tears.  Sarah was not Cherokee Indian.

Barbee Family

Ella Barbee had another son named John Henry "Jack" Mills, Jr. (8/21/1998-5/14/1967) and a daughter Lorie Alene Mills (2/3/1900 - ) by first husband, John Henry "Charlie" Mills (died circa 1899).  John Henry "Jack" Mills, Jr. , had sons named Richard Jonathan Mills and Roger Buchanan Mills with wife Maxine Adeline Gleason. I have genealogies of the Mills from 1795 and also on the Gleasons.

Ella Barbee had 12 brothers and sisters - John Andrew, William Henry, Benjamin Edwin, Aubry Wilber, Minter Derwood, Emma Laverne, Richard Victor, Albert Ray "Babe", John Hardy, James Erastus, Mary France Etta Barbee, and Rosa Lena Ketner (half-sister).

Hurst Family

My grandmother, Alice Lorraine Hurst, had four siblings (Roy, Buster, Bill (female), and Ollie) and five half-siblings (Lizzie Hurst, Sally Hurst, Lee Hurst, Ann Thornton, and Mattie Thornton). Her father was William T. Hurst. Her mother's maiden name was Lucy Ann McClellan. See my HURST webpage.

Mustered in on 12/25/1861 in Nashville, Paroled at Greensboro, NC, on 05/01/1865, Captured 02/16/1862 at Fort Donelson, Dover, TN

Ancestor must be in Texas before 1886.  Ella Barbee Joines was 10 months old in Texas in 1880.

Prisoner exchange list for George Washington Joines [G. W. Joines] and below him is listed Daniel Logan Joines [D. L. Joines].  Henry Warren Lucy [H. W. Lucy], who married Amanda Adelaide Joines, was also in the 53rd Tennessee Infantry and captured.

son G. W. Joines [George Washington Joines], son D. L. Joines [Daniel Logan Joines], Henry Warren Lucy [H. W. Lucy], the husband of daughter Amanda Adelaide Joines - Julia Joines lived with them in 1870, according to the TN census, daughter Denecia Joines married Major A. Beal [census records] and M.A. Beal is on the “estate sale.”  Also on the “estate sale” is H. G. Meece, an adjoining neighbor.  I have the land records to prove it.  And finally, Thomas Joines’ “friend M. E. Alexander is the Executor of his Will” and is also on the “estate sale.” G. W. Joines did get the prized feather bed.
