John was born 09 Oct 1855 in Phelps Co, Missouri. Martha Ann Grayson was born 29 Jul 1863 in Phelps.
Mary daughter of William "Frank"lin Smith and Mattie McKibben. Hugh son of Willard Styles and Fannie Jamerson.
Her parents were John Smith and Martha Ann Grayson. siblings were Bertha, Martha(known as Lizzie), William(known as Frank), Anna Bell(annie),and Parthena(known as Thenie)
Aunt Bert was married several times.1st to James Caulk then to Robert L Collins last that I know of was Charles Whal.
These are my gr Aunts daughters of John Smith and Martha Ann Grayson.
Rachel Emiline Armendia Elizabeth Jamerson on right. Fannie Laura Zettie Jamerson on left. Mother and daugther.(Jamerson/Styles)
Mont was a former Confederate soldier (deserter) from confederate regiment 16, Company C (the black Mountain Boys) and was the leader of a band that led a raid on Burnsville to steal supplies. He was described as "the leader of the band of Torries". I believe this was Willard W Styles father from what I was always told,he was my gr grandfather. I have these recent Notes from a cousin. From what I understand Willard was using the name Ray until he and his Dad had a falling out.Then he changed his name to Styles, his mothers name. I also gather that Willard was hired out as farm help at a young age. I have yet found any type of records on Willard. they had no records on birth or death certificates for Willard. I often wonder who his parents really were.
Willard Whittington Styles. His Dad was one of the Monteville Ray's from Yancey County. Fannies parents were David Newton Parker and Rachel Emiline Armendia Elizabeth Jamerson. Fannie had the Jamerson name because her parents were not married.
This is Fannie Jamerson and Willard Styles with their 9 children. Arnold, Mallie,Craig,Mary,Hugh, John,Delzie, Nellie and Alice Styles.

Debby Styles Robert I have been out of town...I will look for more pictures of them but I don't think I have many more with either of them. I knew Darlene and her family when they lived here in Oroville. We use to visit them a lot. We had so few family members in CA that Aunt Bert and Aunt Elma were the only ones we visited a lot. I still remember Darlenes house in the country and playing with her boys, Patsy was grown so I did not know her really. I will email you once i am caught up on some things. take care debby

Debby Styles My Smiths are from the N.E corner of OK. Miami, Commerce and because they are only miles from Baxter Springs KS and Joplin MO they are also in that area.
