I am doing a one name study on the name COVEY. If anyone has run
across any of these folks I would certainly appreciate hearing from
My direct line goes back to 1639 in Braintree, Massachuttes. I'm now

Thanks in advance for your efforts.

I found a webpage that is the MHI Photograph Database of Civil War
photographs. I thought you might like to see this page. Search by surname.
You can't see the photo but it gives the name of the person & rank such.
You can order a copy of the photo if you find one you want.
Thank you very much for contributing the wonderful photo pages to your site!
I absolutely loved them esp. since I have family from there Alfred and
Alcide Bessire along with JC, J H & George Tufly who already have
Biographies online about them on Harrison County biographies Pages So When I
found photos of John C, Tufly on pg. 5 and Mr. & Mrs. JH Tufly pg. 6 I
couldn't wait to tell my family! On page 1 of you mentioned additional
photos you had not added so I was wondering if any of those included Bessire
or McCrillis . Bessire Daughter married Jasper McCrillis and John would be
his father( If I remember correctly).

Richard and Susan Davis had a daughter named Harriet Isabelle Davis.
Harriet Isabelle Davis (Belle Davis) married my great-grandfather, John Delbert Farris (J.D. or Burt Farris).
I'd love to learn more about this part of my family. Please contact me at scott_farris(a)mindspring.com
