Found your website with a lot of my ancestors on it. Who are you?
Laban (not Labon) S. Durham and Lola Ward Hackworth are my great-grandparents.
Some of the names are wrong.

Their children were
Lorraine (not Laura), called "Layne" - had 2 daughters
Laban Ward, called "Ward" - no children
Annie Ellon - never married, no children
Vaughnie Lee - one daughter
Pauline - no children

All were born in Bedford County Virginia. Three relatives fought in the War Between the States. One of them was Laban S. Durham (can't recall without looking in my records if his middle name was Sydney or Saunders). He was captured and released at the end of the war.
