Russell D James Florida Military Data 01/16/01
I am beginning research into what I hope will be my master's thesis in history at The University of West Florida. In 1846 Florida provided the United States Army with four volunteer companies of men to fight in the Mexican-American War, also know as the U.S.-Mexican War and the War With Mexico. One of those companies, Kelly's Company, under the command of W. W. J. Kelly of Pensacola, was organized in West Florida. 79 men from West Florida joined 10 from Tallahassee.
Captain Kelly's Company trained at Ft. Pickens and then were transferred via steamship to Vera Cruz. They saw no actual fighting, but they were instrumental in keeping the lines of communication open between Vera Cruz and Mexico City.
I am looking for genealogies and family histories of the men who fought in this company, in particular the men from Pensacola and Milton, although for any man in this company would be appreciated. I'm also looking for information about the War written by the participants from Florida.
There doesn't seem to be much written about the Florida companies and I intend to change that. But I need some source material first. If anyone is aware of the existence of letters, journals, diaries, autobiographies, or biographical sketches of any man who fought with Captain Kelly or any of the other four (and fifth reorganized) companies from Florida, please contact me. Even if you've only heard that so-and-so has a letter supposedly written by so-and-so, please contact me.
Thank you. Russell D. James Graduate student, department of history, UWF member, Santa Rosa Genealogical Society 983-0048
John Rogers ALFORDS 11/12/01
I had a day to whip through South Santa Rosa County the other day on my way to Ponce de Leon, but did not have enough time to check out all I wanted to. I live in Huntsville, Al and have a tough time getting back home. Can someone help me out with the following. Joseph Fulton Alford is buried at Holley Cemetery, and his father Thomas Alford is also, according to his death certificate. Tom lived from 1856-1953 in the area of East Bay/Holley/Baghdad. He was a carpenter in the shipbuilding industry. I could not find his grave. I also would love to find the grave of his father, Henry M. Alford (1815-abt 1882) and his mother, Martha Crews Alford (1820-abt 1890). They both died in South Santa Rosa County. They were there in 1880 census. Martha was living with son, Thomas in 1885 in East Bay.
There is one cousin buried at Hickory Hammock. Is there a cemetery at East Bay, which I suppose was once a town? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, John Rogers 256-882-5661

Mike Godwin ARMSTRONG 8/25/03
Decendents of John Wesley Armstrong or Sarah Prudence Armstrong Garner Our family is currently researching the Santa Rosa Co. area of Florida. Marriage records list our grandparents marriage in 1908 Walter Denton to Lavada Garner. Her parents and only known brother are of the main interest at this time. Sarah Prudence Armstrong, rumored to be half Cherokee with one brother John Wesley Armstrong. Sarah was born in 1874-1875 on October 10. We do not know of brother John's age. Sarah married John N. Garner at some point before or during 1890-1892. We are assuming at this point in research that Sarah may have moved to Alabama area as it is believed that her parents were from AL. An 1880 Federal Census lists John M Armstrong 39, Married to Frances Armstrong 42 one son Nathaniel J.W. Armstrong 11, Sarah P Armstrong 5, and Safrona Armstrong 1. In Santa Rosa County with only the two daughters born in FL. If anyone has research on John Wesley Or John M. Armstrong any information would be helpful. It is known that John Wesley (brother of Sarah) worked on Railroad as did grandfather... Thank you, Emily Godwin

Dean Carmeris CARMERIS 10/08/01
Hello, My name is Dean Carmeris. While doing a Web search on my last name using the google search engine I got a hit on a page that seems to be 'owned' by you through your buchanan2_2000 id. The page is - 101k The page seems to be part of the Santa Rosa County GenWeb Project. The reason it is so interesting to me is that it shows a person with my father's name Charles Carmeris being married to an Estella Robbins on Apr 9, 1933. Our name, Carmeris, is very unusual and it was quite surprising to find another reference to it. It's of Greek descent and when most of our relatives came through Ellis Island the various transliterations usually began with a 'K', not a 'C'. All of the family we are aware of ended up in the New England area, I'd like to see how I can find out more information about this person. When I go to the GenWeb Project homepage and search on carmeris, nothing comes up. Sorry for being so verbose and thank you for any help you can give me about finding more information about this Charles Carmeris.

Geneva Delaney(Cole) COLE 05/11/01
Hi! My GGGrandfather bought a farm and built a Grist Mill in the Bagdad area pre-civil war. His name was Samuel Cole and he was originally of Hartford, CT. He met and married Mary Elisabeth Lovelace (Butler) in Bagdad. I have looked and looked via the internet and can't find a thing attesting to the fact that they even lived in the area. In the Bagdad history they spoke of Grist mill owners, (just to name a few) so I am thinking there may be something in the form of history to do with the Grist Mills in the area. Would you happen to have anything on them? Thanks Geneva Delaney (Cole)

Linda Helms Stringer HELMS COX 10/31/01
Helms and Cox in Milton - Harold -Pace area, late 1800s
Researching the family of Charles Ingram Helms and his offspring. Charles Ingram Helms b. 17 April 1823 moved to Santa Rosa County in April of 1866, settling in the "Bagdad District" near Milton. He and his second wife, a widow named Margaret Julia Cox, reared many of his large family of children from his first marriage and had at least two children of their own.
He and his sons were in the timber business, as were many people in that era of FL history. It is family oral history that Charles Ingram Helms had a sawmill, and his younger son Jesse Perry Helms had a boat with which he towed barges of sawn lumber from the Helms sawmill to Pensacola. Other sons worked in the mill and in cutting timber for the mill. Some of Julia's children by her deceased husband James Cox also worked with them. One was named Milledge Cox, am unsure of the others but would very much like to know who they were.
On the 1870 Census in Santa Rosa Co. FL in household 37, there Charles I. (Sr.) is listed as age 47, wife "Julia" age 40, Children Daniel 20, Frances 18, Charles 15, Sibron 10, Jason 7, Jessie 4, Robert 1.
Is anyone researching this family? Would love to exchange information and learn more about his descendants families. Charles Ingram Helms, Sr. was my great great grandfather.
If you know of anyone else researching this line, I would love to know how to contact them. Thank you for your time, I hope someone will have a moment to respond.

Looking for contact with descendants of Charles Ingram Helms (b. 1823) through his many children. He was a resident of the Bagdad area of Santa Rosa County, then found on the Milton District 1885 State Census. He had a son, Charles Ingram Helms, Jr. and one (or both of them) was known as "Ink" Helms. He had 14 children by his first wife, and at least 2 by his second wife. His older surviving children lived in Coffee & Covington counties in AL, and the younger ones were living in Santa Rosa, present day Okaloosa, and Walton counties. Some of the younger children died in a yellow fever epidemic, per family oral history. Some of the children were known by nicknames, and I am not sure which child the nickname went with (Gardenia, Queenie, etc.) Some may have married again, these are the only spouses that I know. Known Children, in birth order (Note: many had 3-4 given names, but I sometimes don't know the whole name, sometimes they used 2 of the 3+ names at various times) -- James Allen Helms (b. 1841/2) m. Elizabeth Ann Adams John William Helms m. Barbara Ezell Mary Ann Elizabeth Helms m. James D. Martin Aaron Washington Helms m. Margaret Susannah Rudd Henry J. Helms m. Francis (surname unknown - b. 1850) Sarah Ann E. Helms m. George Washington Bishop Daniel Y. H. Helms m. Lorania Chance Martha A. L. Helms (either Martha A. L Helms or A. S. Helms - Census is hard to read) Frances A. E. M. Helms m. Milledge Cox (her stepbrother) Charles Ingram Helms, Jr. m. Margaret Jane Fountain Celina Helms Jason David Helms m. Emily Metz George Daniel Helms (some say he went by "Daniel" - I don't know) Sibron Helms Jessie Perry Helms m. Jimmie Georgia Cooper Robert Oscar Moses Helms (b. 1870) m. Sara Frances Wilkinson I have a good bit of information on him, but am hunting people who can fill in the gaps regarding his children's families - would appreciate hearing from those who descend from any of these early Helms. I don't have much information on his present day descendants, as the family line became so big I stopped with the 1920's era. Many descendants remained in Santa Rosa, present day Okaloosa, and Walton counties.

Miss Sam Heede JONES 3/10/01
I am trying to flesh out information on "Buck" Jones and Melissa Nelson who were married 27 Oct 1881 in Santa Rosa Co., Fla. He was L. Buchanan Jones, possibly Lewis Buchanan Jones. Found the marriage confirmation as L. Buchanan Jones. Another researcher obtained a birth certificate for their child, Nora Belle Jones, born 10 Mar 1884 at Jay, Fla. The certificate gave his name as just Buck Jones. I'm grasping at straws at this point! Since you are a Buchanan in the same area, does any of this ring a bell with you? Thanks for your time and for anything you can tell me. Sincerely yours, Miss Sam Heede

I am searching for the family of William Maloy, Sr. His son,William Maloy, Jr. (middle initial may have been either M or J), was born supposedly in Santa Rosa Co, FL but Santa Rosa Co was not formed until 1842.So, he was probably born in Escambia Co. in the area where Santa Rosa is now. In 1850 census, I have located Maloys in 6 Counties in theFL panhandle and in 14 Counties in AL, 5 of these are just north of the FL panhandle. There is a Harriet Maloy shown in both Holmes and Jackson Counties, FL in the 1850 Census. She must have lived on the line and was counted by both sides! This wasWilliam Maloy's wife's name and may be the one we are looking for but noevidence other than the census. This is the line: Descendants of William Maloy, Sr. 1 William Maloy, Sr. .. +Harriet Forhand ......... 2 William M. Maloy 1840 - 1929 ............. +MaryLouise (Mary Jane) Brown 1850 - 1943 Does anyone have any prospective leads or suggestions forme?

Researching the Garrett STANLEY family, who lived in both Covington County, AL and in Santa Rosa Co. FL in years before/after the civil war. Some of descendants lived in the Baker and Pace area. Possibly others in the Milton area, parallel lines (Helms, etc.) were in timber industry. Garrett Stanley b, 01 October 1827 AL d. 30 December 1913 wife: Harriet Taylor b. 12 January 1832 SC d. 08 January 1920 Both in Covington County, AL Known children: James, Sarah, Cullen E., John E., Nancy Jane, Garrett, Mary Ann, Lydia Ann, Matilda Some of their children died during the civil war.Another one died just after the end of the war. I know that Garrett's son John Stanley remained in the Baker, FL area. Descendants of the others - I am not sure. Would love to hear from anyone descending from these early NW FL STANLEYS
Regards, Linda Helms Stringer
