First of all Thankyou very much for the information you did have. I was hoping for some kind of link to this Colonel Amon Belser to explain the Great Uncle who is name Amon Frank Harvey. The Amon name is not a common name even back then. In Fact when reading the history of Cullen Baker this was the first time I had found the name Amon in all of my different Genealogy diggings. I have done alot of search for my and my husbands family in the last 10 years. I want to explain the Harvey connection with the Cullen Baker history. From my understanding of past court documents our Samuel Harvey (who came to Cass County in 1848 one of the earlier settlers of Forrest Hill #1) testified against Cullen Baker for the murder of Wesley Bailey. Who several of our family historians believe is a family member the connection has not been proven at this point. This family was living near our Harvey's in Tenn. Samuel Harvey help Mrs Bailey in the settling of her husband affair after is death.(This is note on court documents) I looked at your history posting to see if there was any connection with our Harvey's & Haynes family connections and did see any link. I will leave you with a list of family connection of name who connection with our Harvey & Haynes: Davis, Peacock, Patterson, Upchurch, Marsh, Hill, Murray, Watson, Barry. Places our family connected to is Tenn, Georgia, Ark, Texas(Lamar, Palo Pinto,Grayson, Cass, Bowie,) Oklahoma or Indian Terr.(AROUND THE DURANT AREA) Thankyou again and if you learn anything else about this gentleman please let me know.
On a different not I notice your WWII posting about the Indy. My Mother uncle was Alton Green he was station on the Indy. The family story about Alton Green is he broke his leg on the ship and was remove off the ship the day before the ship sank. We try to find some prove to the story but no luck. Alton Green has passed on. Real would like to find out if the story is true. Tina
