Hi, that was my great grandfather on my grandmother's side.
Her name was Mary Elizabeth Derrick Reeves (born 2/6/1900 died 6/1/1997 in Stamps Ark.) They lived most of their lives in and around Columbia County Arkansas. I have the other brothers and sisters and some of their children on my other disk at home. The Derrick reunion is May 5, 2007 in Village Ark. You are more then welcome. They have one ever year in May. It is close to the old home site. I will be happy to get you the infor I have and send it to you. Theresa

Hello: Thanks for this reply. I have searched for children of this family for years.

Do you know about the family of John Morgan Derrick? I descend from William Derrick who is the brother of John G Derrick who is the father of John Morgan Derrick. We live in GA.

Would like very much to talk with you and see what I might learn about the family.

For some reason John Morgan decided to go to Ark. before his
father died. John M married in Ark. 1890 and his father died 1891. I think there must have been some connection between the Derick/Derrick families in Ark. and the Derick/Derrick family in GA. John G Derrick, f/o John Morgan Derrick, is buried with his mother and two brothers in Union Christian Cemetery Union Rd., S Fulton Cty., GA. Am anxious to hear from you.

Please let me know what you are interested on the family of John Morgan Derrick and his parents. This is so exciting.
Shirley

Shirley, thanks for the rely I would like to know as much about John Morgan Derrick Sr. as you can send to me. I have just started on the Derrick side of the family this past year. As I said my Grandmother, Mary Elizabeth(Lizzie) Derrick (Baker) Reeves born 2/6/1900 - died 6/1/1997. They said she looked alots like Mrs. Derrick.
I can not get to the infor you want now. It is on my other PC and I have not put it on my lap top yet. I have all of Maw's bro and sisters and families on it. By the time I get in from work my niece is on the pc and it is in her room. Hubbard Franklin Reeves and Lizzie had seven children. Bentiley J. my father m Ivy Lela Reeves (no relation), Lavainia m several times the last time Ray Lacas, Denvil Marcel m several times the last time Beverly Crumpler, Dorothy m T F Patton, Shirley Jean m Derrall Gregory, Laquata Ray m Roland Walters. The last three are still alive. I missed one Martha m Orrvila Garrett, she was the fourth and the first to died from a brain turmor.
I think Dean was the first to died of the sisters. She stepped on a rusted nail and got lock jaw. So I was told.
Oh, yes I was told my gm's Derricks was from Macon, Ga.
Got to run now.
Thanks again. Theresa Clements
P.S. Sorry about your arm.

Teresa: I am sorry to have been so long in writing again. Fell and crushed my right elbow and recovery is coming along great. Have you been able to find the information on your family to send.

Although I grew up around the my Derrick family questions were never asked and now I am so sorry. Did know they came from SC and that was about it. Knew that I was related to the Cash, Redwine and other families but not how. This had been a long journey for me even tho I knew all of my g grandfather, William Derrick, family. We all went to church and school with each other. Never asked questions or got into this until grown..

John Morgan Derrick is the youngest child of John G Derick/Derrick and Mary Hensey. There were two others, William L b 1861 and Martha b 1863. What happened to them I do not have a clue. Although John G lived in Hampton, Henry Cty., GA he is buried in S Fulton County along with his mother Catherine,bros William and Wallace at Union Christian Church, Union Rd., S Fulton County, GA. Have been trying to find out why John Morgan went to Arkansas. Did his brother William go? Unable to find out. Do you have any clues?

Thanks for the 1st reply and looking forwad to many others. sdholland@mindspring.com
