James A. Ansley

RESEARCHER: Information sent to T.Mason on 20 May 2004 by Karen Ansley [kansley@classicnet.net]. "In 1854, Jame A. and Rebecca Ansley left Georgia for Texas. In their party were their children, his brother Richmond Ansley, Rebecca's sister Elizabeth and husband James Kinsey and their children, other relatives from Georgia and numerous slaves. In Louisiana, several in the party contracted cholera and died. James Ansley died and was buried in Shreveport. Their daughter Eliza Ann, who had feared leaving Georgia and had, in a premonition of her own death, prepared her burial clothes before they left, died a few days later and was buried in Jefferson, Texas. also dying on the trip were Richmond Ansley, Elizabeth Kinsey, several babies in the party and some 10 slaves. According to a great-granddaughter of Rebecca, Lila B. Dudley (granddaughter of Josephus) Rebecca herself prepared the bodies of her husband, sister and daughter for burial and then read the services. The party prevailed and settled northeast of Tyler, Texas, in the Starrville area. Rebecca Ansley later (1857) married James Kinsey and together they completed the job of raising the children of both families."
